Jenna Rivera changed after the night on the beach where her heart was broken and she lost everything she thought she had. Gone is the girl who was raised by the sea, replaced by the city girl she swore she'd never be.

In life nothing is certain, and every day must be treated as if it's your last. Can they save their love, and each other, before it's too late?
Review by Brittany
Rebecca Sherwin is now one of my top authors. Second Chance Hero was so beautifully written, I know I’ll never be able to forget it.
Deacon Reid and Jenna Rivera have been best friends ever since they were seven years old. They’ve been in love with each other since they were seven years old. One night, the same night that Deacon loses his father in a car crash, the two share a kiss. When Deacon shuns Jenna afterwards, she runs back to London, where she attends school with Deacon. Deacon never makes it back to London, having to stay in their hometown of Folquay to run his dad’s construction business.
Jenna makes her way back to Folquay five years later. She’s grown up. She has two cake shops and a steady boyfriend. She has it all together. That all flies out the window when her and Deacon lock eyes over the dinner table.
Deacon and Jenna can no longer fight their attraction for each other. All the love they felt years ago is still there, but intensified by a thousand. Can Jenna and Deacon figure out their issues and find their way back to each other? Are they going to screw up the second chance handed to them?
I loved this story. If I’m being honest, I was expecting some lame story that I’ve heard before. That was not what I got. This story is about finding love and taking that second chance by the balls. It’s filled with angst, love, anger, and more emotions than you can think of.
With love there comes sex. Rebecca Sherwin knows how to write sex. The scenes between Deacon and Jenna were explicitly hot. She’s very creative too. I’ll leave that up to your interpretation…
I am reviewing the second release of Second Chance Hero. If you read this before and didn’t like it, give it another chance. She added some things and it’s been edited. I never read the first version, but this version is fantastic!
I chatted Rebecca over Facebook as I read. Our conversation was filled with my shouty capitals and lol moments. This is a great read and I recommend it for everyone.
Five stars for Second Chance Hero, Rebecca. Five stars for Deacon and Jenna and their second chance. May their love live on forever.
