Second Chance on Cypress Lane by Reese Ryan
Publisher: Forever • Publication Date: December 1, 2020
I’m wondering why I have not read anything by Reese Ryan yet because I adored this book! The second chance romance between Dakota and Dexter was so sweet and I could not put this book down. I couldn’t wait to get to the end to see what would happen, but I also didn’t want it to end because I wasn’t ready to say goodbye to these characters. I’m eagerly awaiting the second book of the series to be released in 2021!
After a scandal ruins her job opportunities in New York, Dakota heads home to North Carolina to reevaluate things and spend time with her father. The one person she hopes not to see when she is home is her ex-boyfriend Dexter who broke her heart 17 years ago. But of course Dakota can’t avoid him and Dexter is hoping for a second chance or at least for Dakota to forgive him for the break-up that broke his heart as well.
Dexter quickly became one of my favorite male characters in a book. Once you find out why he originally broke up with Dakota, you can’t help but fall in love with him. He was so sweet and he was willing to risk his own happiness to ensure Dakota got everything she wanted. I loved that this book offered both Dakota and Dexter’s perspective on things, I feel it just adds so much more to the story when you know what both characters are thinking. The ending to me was perfect and I hope we’ll be catching up with Dakota and Dexter in Ryan’s next book in this series.
Thank you to Forever for an advance finished copy in exchange for an honest review.
