Grace Winston is headed back home for a
family party after leaving years ago. Grace misses being in
her home state, but she had a good reason for picking up her
life and moving. Grace has a great job and a pretty good
social life, however, she is missing that one special
ingredient – someone to love who loves her just as much.
Grace thought she had found him, but her heart was shattered
one night in a hotel room, and now Grace believes she is
ready to start over again. Beginning with facing the man of
her dreams and her nightmares.
Jake Magee is Grace’s brother’s best
friend. He has been part of the family since both boys were
young. Jake watched Grace grow up and was surprised when
she suddenly became more then a little sister to him. Jake
knew his future was uncertain when he joined the military
instead of being the dream man Grace wanted, his actions
that night hurt her instead. Now out of the military and
ready to take the next step in his life, Jake has discovered
Grace is really all he wants.
Grace has no reason to trust Jake since
he destroyed even their friendship that night. Now
discovering how badly he hurt the woman he loves, Jake has
to figure out how to get not only Grace’s trust back but her
love as well. Grace has started her life over, now she has
to decide if Jake is the one she wants in her future or
should he stay firmly in the past?
Sometimes you can get a second chance
at love, but can you ever regain trust once it’s lost?
Ready to Take a Chance Again portrays the rocky
road in earning back lost trust and love. Grace shot for
the moon and ended up having a crash landing that destroyed
both love and trust . Jake thought he was doing the right
thing when he acted, but only now is it becoming clear just
what he lost and what he is determined to earn back. I
could feel the pain on both sides when Grace and Jake came
back together and for a long while I wasn’t sure if they
would regain the trust and love they had lost. Ms. Oberlies
has written a romantic story about love thrown away and the
fight to regain it. While watching Jake and Grace find a
way to their future, it became clear to me how hard it is to
regain the type of trust necessary for a strong and lasting
love. Ready to Take a Chance Again is a love
story that will hurt your heart while also warming it.
