I'm sharing another few sentences from Second Time's the Charm before you can read Three's a Crowd- the sequel.
A middle aged divorcee with two children must find her way back to love after a devastating divorce leaves her with no self confidence in herself or even in love. Lissa's ex-husband has shredded her self esteem, so she has thrown herself into her children and job. An emergency life threatening illness of her best friend's son puts her on the path to romance. Lissa finds her new love in an unexpected way...introduced by his ex-wife.
Who knew that first time loves could lead to second chances?
These sentences come after Lissa and Alex begin connecting and are enjoying some food and drinks on their first real date.
Alex pulled my hand to his lips and kissed each fingertip then lightly ran his tongue over my palm and I couldn’t take my eyes off his mouth and what he was doing. We dashed to his car after paying the bill and found we couldn’t keep our hands off each other. Like teenagers, we sat in the front seat necking until a stranger opened his door next to our car and startled us. Embarrassment flooded my face.
“Talk about a mood killer. We'd better get out of here,” Alex suggested. “I don’t want the evening to end and I don’t want to take advantage of what we're feeling. We need a second date.” With that he gave me a light peck on the cheek and drove me home.
I shut my apartment door with a silly grin on my face. I was really falling for this guy.
For Lissa, the second time at love was a charm but in marriage, three’s a crowd.
Single mother Lissa Vincent found her soul mate in her best friend’s ex-husband. Alex Hunter couldn’t believe his fortune when his ex-wife told him her best friend was available. After divorce, finding love again could be a challenge but it appeared Alex and Lissa had gotten lucky. Yet as they start their lives as newlyweds, Alex and Lissa don’t realize just how difficult it might be to blend a family.
When Alex’s ex new marriage begins to unravel, she sets her sights again on Alex. Does Alex still have feelings for the mother of his child? Will Lissa keep her best friend or lose her husband?
Fairytales promise a happily-ever-after. But what really happens after the after.
