Prominent DC attorney Emma Taylor is pulled away from a promising date the week before Christmas to pick up her ex-fiance from the ER after a bar fight. She's in no mood to re-open old wounds, but it's Christmas and she can't just leave him alone and injured.

Eight hundred eighty-four days. That's how much time has passed since Major Colton Evans made the biggest mistake of his life. Even after two tours of duty and too much shrapnel in his leg, it's still the loss of Emma that haunts him. And if he can win her back, he'll take any chance.

When she insists he stay with her during the holiday, they put out enough sexual electricity to rival the most decorated house on the block. But will it be enough to light the way to a future together?

A Hallmark movie come to life, this book is sweet and patriotic and will make you feel so many emotions!

Colton and Emma broke up two years ago when he wanted her to drop everything and move with him when he was getting stationed somewhere new, despite the fact that he was due to be deployed to Afghanistan two months later. A nasty argument with harsh words, two prideful people and two years later, an IED explosion and a bar fight bring them back together. The question now is, can they get past the same issues and make it work now?

SECOND CHANCE CHRISTMAS is a wonderful book that honors our military personnel and their families. It depicts a situation that is all too real for our men and women in service today as well as situations that face our soldiers and their families every day. You really root for the hero and heroine to get together in this book. You understand their history and what they have been through. This book brought me to tears at one point. The reason that I did not rate it higher than three stars was because I felt like the focus was more on the story and less on the romance, and as a romance reader, I am reading for the romance.

I really enjoyed reading Emma and Colton's story and felt many different emotions and can honestly see this as a Lifetime or Hallmark movie. The story itself is written well and I would definitely read something by this author again.
