Who says you can’t marry the same mistake twice?
Certainly not Nya Perez…because that’s precisely what she’s done.
Liam Watts is the bane of her existence.
Her first love. Father of her child. And breaker of her heart.
Oh, he’s also her ex-husband. Well, he was, anyway…right up til this morning, when she woke up beside him in a Vegas hotel room, sheathed in satin and tulle with a sinking feeling in the pit of her stomach.
If it were just between the two of them, an annulment would be the obvious solution. After all, they wouldn’t be the first to marry and divorce at the little white chapel in the span of twenty-four hours.
But their daughter’s greatest wish has just been granted, and if there’s one heart Nya wants to protect more than her own, it’s Ellie’s.
So, she promises to give it six months.
There’s no way she’ll be swayed by his thick southern drawl, those well-defined abs, or that annoyingly delectable scruff lining his cheeks.
Nope. She’s got it all under control. Six months of playing house, then everything can go back to the way it was before.
But first she’ll have to muddle through marriage with Liam—take two.
Second chance romances are definitely one of my favorite tropes, so when I read the blurb of Heather M. Orgeron’s new release, Take Two, I was all about getting Liam and Nya’s backstory and then reading about how they found themselves with an impromptu wedding and a take two when it comes to making a go as not only a newly married couple but as a family – one that was their daughter’s birthday wish.
I’m all for feel good stories, and Liam and Nya’s book is exactly the kind of swoon worthy romcom I needed for what has to be one of the most chaotic weeks in my life. It’s clear these two characters have a soulful connection, and while the first go around led to a series of mistakes made that ultimately resulted in divorce, this time around, they’re in with eyes wide open, and even though Nya is way more hesitant than Liam with their new normal, what they share is worth the risk and the six months Nya agreed to, even if it started as a way to appease their daughter.
I’ve only read one other book written by Orgeron and that was an absolute tear jerker, so to see such a different side of her writing and how fluid her comedic quips and humorous scenes are crafted made for an incredible reading experience – one that I hope to repeat by reading more of her stories in the near future.
