It’s been four months since Gray and Dylan have seen each other. Dylan’s been traveling in Europe, while Gray has college, baseball, and a life rooted in one place. Gray’s determined to forget Dylan, the girl he fell in love with in First Comes Love. Besides, how do you make a relationship work with an independent loner?
Just when he decides he’s over her, Dylan makes an unexpected entrance back into his life, hoping their steamy romance can start right where it left off. Gray realizes you can tell your mind to do one thing, but you can’t always convince your heart to follow. Dylan realizes she finally has to make a choice between freedom and her relationship with Gray.
Hilarious, intense, inspiring, and emotional, Second Chance shows that love is a journey, and there are never clear road signs or maps to guide you along. You can only navigate with your heart.
I want to document everyone of my thoughts just so I can replay them and listen. Most of all, I want to live in the moment and not plan a single thing. How crazy is that? To not know whats going to happen next? To do something because YOU love it, not because it’s been planned for you?
This book, well, these two books, First Comes Love and Second Chance, makes me want to find who I am.
This is not just a book to me. It helped me realize that every single thing has beauty, people are just lost souls looking for their sun. Some people need a constant sun, some need a moon.
Okay, enough about me. Let’s talk literature.
The characters in this book are so pronounced. It amazing. Dylan is by far the best character I have ever read. Ever. She’s a traveler looking for herself in every person she meets, and she finds bits and pieces of herself in everyone. She’s a puzzle with her pieces scattered all around the world. Dylan can’t stay in one place for long and she changes everyone she meets: helps them find love, in people, places, ideas…themselves. She is by no means perfect but she just makes people Better. How amazing is that? She sets goals without restraints. Make someone happy, do something nice, get a new perspective (even a squirrels), do something random, give something a story. It’s…..well….amazing. There is no one else like her.
In each other they found a mad, passionate love that is one for the history books. It was epic filled with jumping on train cars and giving churches a history and going to abandoned towns and hikes and picture taking. It was adventurous and scary and so, so real.
Kacvinsky is an amazing writer. Every single emotion portrayed in these pages was so real: the heartbreak, the love, the pain, the acceptance. She wrote this book in a way that’s more about finding yourself in pieces of the world. Everything has a story, whether you write it or there is one written down.
Bacon even has a song, for crying out loud.
“I learned that the heart, our most vital organ, turns out to be our weakest link. It’s scary to think something so necessary to sustain us, protected in a cradle of ribs and flesh and muscles, is so fragile, so easily broken.”
So please, please do yourself a favor and get your hands on these books as fast as you can. You’ll never regret it. So sorry, Mr. Green, Katie has replaced you as my favorite author. Don’t worry you’re a close second!
