When Nolan Kincaid skipped town to chase the music career of his dreams, he knew he wouldn’t miss the reminders of his broken familyâhe wasn’t so sure he could forget the girl he left behind. Now his band is touring nonstop, the recording sessions go all night, and the groupies are crazed. But when he hears that Hailey Wilkins is in trouble, he drops everything. Hailey thought she’d missed her chance with Nolan. Five years ago, the moment she realized she loved him was the moment he decided to leave. Now, when a brutal assault lands her in the ICU, Nolan flies straight to her bedside, acting like nothing’s changed. What’s a rock star like him doing, canceling shows and risking his record deal, just to nurse an old friend back to health? And why should Hailey believe he’ll stay this time? With her attacker still at large, Nolan’s ready to rise to the occasion. He knows he let Hailey down once before, but he’s ready to give her everything, heart and soulâand he’ll fight for the chance to prove it.
If you asked me straight forward on my thoughts about second chance romances books than I would say âNOPE â not for me.
But I guess you can always count in some exceptions to the rule. âThis One Moment by Stina Lindenblatt is one of those exceptions.
It seems â with me it is really depending on the package of the second chance. Nolan and Hailey had been friends for such a long time so actually it is almost a âfriends-to-loversâ as well as a âsecond-chanceâ setting.
And also the reasons for them to be apart made sense in a big way.
I could easy relate to Nolanâs thoughts even if the way he handled it were, well â¦ kind of âtypical maleâ â¦
But the author made sure to show the reader that he was never far away from Hailey. Even if she did not say it out loud â the reader could also be quite sure she knew somewhere deep down that that there was always some connection to Nolan. #Hence the friend that is taping the games even if it is well known he does not care for the games himself.
So is this really a second chance novel ? or more a âtook you a long time to see the obviousâ novel â I am not sure â¦
But I liked it â¦ like in REALLY liked it – and from what I learned from Nolanâs Band â I really would like to hear more about them in future books.
I could not totally understand some of the reasons that led to the final solution of the mystery of her attacker (no details because of spoilers) but in the grand scheme I think they did not matter so much as the focus was on the leading characters.
