When Stella Jo Chandler gets an offer to work at the Second Chance Ranch celebrity rehab facility right after graduating from Texas A&M, she’s tempted to turn it down. She wants to help real people with real problems, not spoiled celebrities going on vacation for publicity. But growing up on her family’s ranch left her with a love of horses that draws her to the opportunity. How bad can babysitting a bunch of strung out celebrities be?

What she didn’t count on was being roped into a tangled mess with infamous rocker and three-time rehab drop out Van Ransom on her first day. And she sure didn’t expect to feel the overwhelming attraction that pulls her to the man who has more issues than she can count on both hands. Like the hotel rooms and tour buses he’s famous for trashing, the havoc he could wreak on Stella’s heart would be irreparable.

Van isn’t at Second Chance for publicity or because he’s suffering from “exhaustion”. He’s on the brink of destruction, and he needs the kind of help Stella isn’t sure she can give. But without her, he'll lose everything. Because he’s on his last second chance.

This was a powerful forbidden love story. It was one that pulled me in and didn’t let me go until the very end. I couldn’t stop reading it and needed to know what was going to happen next, were they going to give into each other or were their pasts and rules going to keep them apart? I connected with both of the main characters Stella and Van. I loved that we got to get into both of their heads and understand what they were feeling and thinking. 

Both of the main characters have broken past, in very different ways, that they are running from. Stella has never felt wanted by anyone not even her parents, not that she had a bad childhood. She has always strived to be perfect thinking that would make those in her life happy. Van had a very difficult childhood and the only person who was ever there for him left him years ago. He turns to drugs, alcohol, and women to numb the pain. Taking things too far Van, lead singer of the band Ransom, is given a last chance by his record label to complete rehab or he will be replaced. He enters Last Second Chances Ranch and literally runs into Stella, a new care coordinator at the ranch. There is an instant connection and attraction, but there is a strict no fraternizing policy between “clients” and employees. Will they give up everything to be with each other or will all the roadblocks and obstacles get in their way??

 This is the first book of the author’s that I have read of the author’s and it will not be the last. We got a glimpse into the second book of the series at the end of the book, and I CANNOT WAIT FOR IT. I’m now hooked and will be adding the author’s other books to my TBR list immediately!!! This is must read book, one-click it immediately you will not be disappointed.

I get asked about my writing process and where I write so I wanted to share my Top Ten MUST HAVE’s for writing sessions!

1.      My MacBook Air (& its charger)– It’s light and travels well!
2.      My headphones/ear buds – Because not everyone in the library/bookstore/coffee shop wants to hear my Spotify book soundtrack apparently. (weirdos)
3.      A pen & notebook – Yes, I write lots of things out by hand still! Call me old fashioned! #iprefervintage
4.      My iPhone – The notes app is my friend!
5.      Bottled water – so I don’t dehydrate
6.      Iced coffee – So I can stay awake
7.      My reading glasses – For years I got migraines while typing, until I started wearing them! #lifesaver
8.      Snacks – Sometimes it’s chocolate, or granola and dried fruit, or a protein bar, just something so I don’t get hunger headaches.
9.      Pepcid Complete – Not kidding. My characters give me indigestion. Or it could be number 6…
10.  Excedrin Migraine – Are you sensing a theme with the headaches yet? Hours at the computer and looong nights make this miracle drug very necessary. I might be slowly destroying my liver or something, but writers gotta write! ;)

So there is my complete (and very unglamorous) list of writing session must haves!
