Second Chance (Running Into Love Book #3) by Annalisa Nicole with Giveaway & Review

Adrian Wellington was beyond devastated when his wife, Shay, left him seventeen years ago without warning or explanation. She filed for divorce and left town, right when he needed her most. He’s

since opened his own thriving business and has been going through the motions of day-to-day life, but not really living. He knows there’s just something missing, or rather someone.

Shay Bradshaw ran from the love of her life with a deep, dark, unforgivable secret. She took the cowardly way out and just disappeared. She moved across the country and as far away from the Wellington family as she could get, and the only man she’s ever loved. She made a promise to herself to never be the person she was all those years ago. She took with her the secret that she thought was hers to bear alone.

When Shay is forced to move back home to care for her mother, naturally karma would choose that time for their worlds to collide once again.

Can lightning strike a second time seventeen years later and bring two destined souls back together, or will Shay’s secret destroy their second chance?

The truth, although not what is seems, will set your heart free.


My Review: 5 stars
So good! It took me a minute to remember what had happened at the end of the second book, but then I remembered. I was glad to get the back story on what had happened to Adrian and Shay. Initially, I knew that something more had happened to make Shay behave the way she did. When I found out what the combination was, not only was I stunned, but I was angry on her behalf. I'm glad that Adrian took the time to try and understand how his family's actions had affected Shay, and then to find out the second part that only Shay had known and lived with all these years alone, damn. She explained very well exactly how they made her feel and the guilt that she took upon herself all these years, but it was an accident. An accident that caused two people to live apart for 17 years and for Shay to have kept that guilt to herself all those years was not good for her. Adrian was upset that Shay hadn't said anything, but understood why. Then he proceeded to go after his woman and get her back, making it clear that she was the one for him and the only one. He wouldn't live without her again, and did everything to make Shay certain of his feelings. I loved his vision and how true that became. I was really happy for them all at the end of the book. I'd still love to know what happened with Max and Chloe, but hopefully that's the next book. I for one, can't wait for that! Annalisa keeps writing these amazing stories about these fabulous people and families. I love them all.

I am an “Indie” contemporary romance author. I live in California with my husband and two teenage boys. I love being a stay at home mom. My husband and I enjoy wine tasting and camping with our kids with our four wheelers in the middle of nowhere, where you can find me with my pink Ryder BB gun!

We have a handful of pets, a dog named Lucy (who is in my books) and a guinea pig named Flufy (my son spelled her name that way) and a cat who adopted us many years ago and has never left. She is a spoiled outdoor cat with her own two story house and a heated bed.

I never liked reading as a kid. I only started reading romance novels in the past few years. My Kindle and I are inseparable now. A thought occurred to me in December of 2012 that maybe I could write a romance novel. So I went to work with the encouragement of my husband and my sister-in-law. It didn’t take long to figure out that I really enjoyed writing. 

Today I am a self published author and it has been an amazing journey. Email me at
