A deadly accident can take a life in more than one way.

Four years ago, Carlene Adams made a deadly mistake. A tragic accident derailed the future she'd hoped for, taking the life of the man she'd planned to spend forever with.

As a self-imposed penance for her solitary sin, Carlene has given up on every dream she ever had. She has committed to spend every remaining moment trying to make up for that one instance when everything changed.

Then she gets a second chance.

When Carlene meets Nick Johnson, the single kiss they share awakens the desires she shoved aside for so long. Suddenly she wants more than what she believe she deserves. Will she ever see him again? And if she does, what will that mean for her?

A thing of fate.

Leaving the life she built on regret, Carlene waits for fate to intervene. But just as she begins to believe in a fresh start, she's forced to realize a horrible truth—one with the power to send her second chance crashing before it even takes off.

Nick isn't who she thought he was. She isn't the girl he believed her to be, either. Their lives were intertwined even before they met, and if Carlene tells him the truth, she’ll risk tearing them apart—for good.

** Due to sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18. **

My thoughts:

I really loved this novella! Carlene has never had an easy life, but she has really wonderful friends, and works in a homeless shelter. After a happenstance meet with Nick, she feels a connection to him she hasn't felt in a long time but life has thrown a few curveballs at her so she's cautious about who she lets in her heart. She later decides to step out of her comfort zone, and leave the shelter and look for job, start life a fresh.
This is a short story, about 104 pages on Amazon, and I really enjoyed every single scene in this story, but what I really loved the most was the twist at the end of the story. Nick is confident, so gentle with Carlene and really hot at the same time. *swoon* Wohoo! I can't wait to read the second novella in this series, Rekindled Moments, when it releases in February.
