When Seconds Count Series Spotlight!

HEAT WARNING: Contains three sexy cowboys who are still very much in love with their wife, love making love with her--together--and spare no details when doing so...every chance they get. Grey still has a dirty mouth, but thanks to Gabby's efforts, tries to keep it clean in front of the children. It doesn't always happen. Recommended for adult readers only.

Join your three favorite cowboys for a very special Christmas holiday. Meet the newest members of the McLendon family, catch up with all your favorite characters from DL's 'When Seconds Count' collection, and get a sneak peek at all the fun and excitement in store for their future.

This is not a standalone. Second Chances must be read first to fully appreciate the context of this book.
**For the sake of this blog posting, I’m doing the reviews backwards because I did read the books backwards!**

I found this book by total fluke in one of the many facebook groups that I’m in.  To be honest, I just wanted a Christmas type book to read, and even with the disclaimer that I should read the other books first, I passed that up and just read it without reading the other books.  And I do have to say, that after reading this book, it made me go and 1 click the other books in the series!  So be warned that you will be sucked into the world Ms. Roan has created!
This is the first book by Ms. Roan that I have read and she just dragged me into the world she had created and I can’t get enough of it!  I felt like she has a very smooth writing style that was able to draw me in and keep me until the story was done.  Even after it was done, I didn’t want the story to end.  Now, to be honest, I was a bit confused about everything going on because I hadn’t read the other books, but was I so lost that I couldn’t follow along with the story? Nope, I was still able to read and enjoy it!
Overall, I would say that if you haven’t read this series yet by Ms. Roan, then you should really check this one out!
Six years after the McLendon brothers lost their wife during the birth of their twins they are merely existing. Focused only on running their ranch and raising their boys, finding another woman to share their hearts with isn't even a dot on their map.....until Claira Robbins drops into their family like a baby bird falling from its nest.
She certainly ruffles more than a few feathers. Matt and Mason believe she is the one who will heal their hearts and family. Their older brother Grey? He plans to live the rest of his life comfortably numb from the neck down, even if it kills him...and it just might if Claira's lethal past catches up to her.

Can they convince Grey to let go of the past and give love a second chance? Or will his own haunting secret destroy what is left of their family for good?

WARNING: Second Chances is an MFMM erotica ménage romance and contains explicit sex, adult language, and violence. Oh, and absolutely no steamy action between brothers, because that would just be awkward. Recommended for the adult reader only.
As I stated in my review for the Second Chances Christmas, I read that before this one.  So I had a little bit of an understanding as to what was going to happen in this book.  Did that ruin my enjoyment of the book?  Heck no! I was still so drawn into the world that Ms. Roan has created that I just had to find out more and more about the character’s that she has created.
One thing that I did love about this book was that Ms. Roan has written a story that isn’t at all like the “normal” poly relationship books out there right now.  She focused more on the emotional part of the relationship between the characters as opposed to the sexual one.  Don’t get me wrong, the smuttiness still happened (and it was AWESOME!) but it was done as an “after” for the relationships.
I also loved how each character had their own personalities, which is a great thing especially with how many characters there are in the book.  It was so easy to follow along with everyone you couldn’t help but be invested in the characters.
And the action/suspense that happens? It’s great! I was literally on the edge of my seat at certain parts, yelling at my kindle at others, and I just couldn’t put the book down!
Overall, I can’t get enough of this series and I can’t wait for more from Ms. Roan in the future!
