No Second Chances by Beverly Hallowed Blog Stop and Giveaway!!

No nonsense mechanic, Ally Brody is a ‘one chance only’ kind of girl. When she catches her boyfriend, of two years, cheating with his assistant on a surprise visit to his office, there will be No Second Chances.

Determined not to fall for the wrong kind of man again, she comes face to face with Cole Thomas. He is gorgeous, charming, rich and everything Ally swore she should stay away from.

Cole wants Ally and he will stop at nothing until he gets what he desires. Bit by bit he breaks through her barriers and takes her on a journey of love and sexual awakenings. Will her obsessed ex, who refuses to accept it’s over, or a secret Cole himself is hiding, destroy their relationship before it even gets started?

Can Ally break her own rule and explore the possibility that Cole just might be the one worthy of a Second Chance?


He slid into the seat next to Ally, sitting so close his thigh brushed against hers sending a shock straight through her making her almost jump from her seat. She quickly moved away so her leg was no longer touching his.

He grinned as he watched her squirm in her seat. He knew he was affecting her. Anyone with eyes in the pub could have seen that. It wasn’t rocket science. Why the hell did he get to her so easily?

Jenn's Review

I’m always ready to read a book with a hot Brit! The trouble is, Cole has to convince Ally he is more than just a handsome face. He certainly has his work cut out for him. The first time they meet, it’s on the side of the road and his car has broken down. When she offers her help, he actually laughs in his face! Not the best way to start. But since he didn’t know Ally was a mechanic and a very good one at that, we’ll let that slide. Now, he starts showing up wherever she is. Work, out with friends… Cole quickly finds himself in Ally’s bed but also in her heart. She is doing her best at keeping the walls around her heart but he is also doing his best to knock them down.

Ally’s ex broke her. She caught him cheating and with the experience she had with her cheating dad, her motto became no second chances. Jason, her ex, doesn’t seem to understand that they are finished and he will not back down. And I mean that in the scariest way possible.

Ally and Cole’s relationship moves quickly but not without passion. The times they are together are explosive and well written. He is also very protective of Ally and can’t figure out why she won’t take measures to get Jason out of her life. But something else is going on. Cole is keeping something from Ally and it’s big. He’s had ample opportunity to share with Ally why he keeps having to leave. But, for some reason he keeps this to himself.

Everything comes to a head in the last couple chapters and the secret is out. Ally is heartbroken and Cole vows to always love her. Will Ally be able to give Cole another chance? Well, we don’t find out in this book! No Second Chances has a cliffhanger ending, so no HEA for us.

I enjoyed the story and it was a quick read but there were parts that I had a problem with. There were times when I felt like the story didn’t flow very well, while the characters were in conversation. Also, when the POV switched back and forth, I would have trouble following. That said, it was still an enjoyable read and I hope you enjoy it as well.
