      People have often told me that I live in a fantasy world Little did they know, I was building an empire of stories in my head to one day share.I m a mother first, a wife second, and a writer third I m so thankful to have been given this chance to get my stories out of my head and onto paper.When I m not writing, I sell plumbing no I m not kidding and read romances that leave my heart a flutter I know a ridiculous amount of pop culture information and can quote certain movies word for word Music drives me to write and to also sing off key.

    1. A sweet story about heartbreak, love, and second chances. At the beginning of this story, you meet Sam and Lil. Both happy, in love, and buying their first home together. Fast forward three years laterSam is getting married, and not to Lil. He is marrying Chloe, his bosses daughter. She and Lil are pretty much opposites. Before you find out how everything with Lil and Sam fell apart, Sam gets in an accident. He wakes up, after being in a coma for a few days, and the last thing he remembers- buyi [...]

    2. I'm very honored to have worked on this story with Holly. I have no doubt you will fall in love with Sam and Lil, as well as the amazing ensemble cast.Review to come later.

    3. *Spoiler Free Review*I just finished reading about maybe 30 seconds agoBackground: Boy meets girl. Both fall in love Boy and Girl get a house togetherLess than a year later their lives are torn apart and they go on separately Girl never gets over boy but had a one night stand with a creepy perverted weirdo Boy gets a new Fiancee called Chloe who is currently planning the weddingHERE IT GOES EVEN MORE COMPLICATED Boy (Sam) falls and is in a coma for days, wakes up remembering nothing since the la [...]

    4. L.A.M.E!!!All you need to know was already explained in JLC's reviewJust read it before start this one. I should know better, because I read JLC's review and even so I insist in read the book because I had bought it.

    5. Anyone who takes a look at my shelves knows that if given a choice contemporary romance is not my preferred cup of tea. That said if you give me a story with a hook, in this case a mystery that breaks apart two soul mates, I'm probably gonna go for it! What can I say? I'm also a HUGE sap, seriously, ask my husband. The story of Sam and Lil is a tale easily described as the things people who love each other do when they are hurting and don't even realize it. They push away their partners, their [...]

    6. Originally posted on my Blog, Bibliophile Mystery bibliophilemystery/I’ve been looking forward to reading this book ever since I saw its beautiful cover, and the story didn’t disappoint me at all.Sam and Lil were a happy young couple. They loved each other very much and thought that no one and nothing could break them apart. But three years later we find them completely changed. There’s nothing left from the former happiness, not even their friends. Sam is getting married in three weeks wi [...]

    7. This book was like reading a Hallmark made for TV movie. Simply put, not all that exciting.I saw some good reviews on here, so I thought I needed a great love story to pick me up from a crappy book I just read. This book wasn't terrible but it was so predictable and boring. It started off all promising with the prologue and then you wonder what's happened. The build up was so long and drawn out and I was like frickin hell just tell him!Basically Sam and Lil had a true love story, something happe [...]

    8. So I think there were some serious biblical themes going on in this book: the MCs were named Sam(son) and (De)Lil(ah) – and we all know how well that turned out. Sam’s two best friends were named Kane and Abe (seriously), Sam’s father’s name is Paul, and his brother is Joshua. Sam’s potential father-in-law is Jonah. Lil’s best friend is Elle, which is obviously Elizabeth. Seriously, I feel like I should be going to church or something this weekend! The only character (I think) that d [...]

    9. Aww, you guys, I adored Second Rate Chances. Now I'll admit, I'm a sucker for amnesia and reconnected love stories, so I was an easy sell. But the prologue, it was so gorgeous and it made me want to figure out how Sam and Lil went from overwhelming joy and love, to nothing. And more importantly, would they find their way back together again? I really liked how the author approached the story, giving you Sam and Lil happy in the prologue, then beginning chapter one with them having been broken up [...]

    10. “How?” he asked in a whisper. “How did we go from being what I remember – happy and in love – to,” he waved his arms around the space that kept them apart, “this? To you standing what feels like a world away? Lil, we promised one another forever.” AHHHHH what a fantastic read. Seriously, great plot line. This is a book about how true love never goes away. How a man with amnesia gets a second chance with the woman he loves. How he gets a second chance to change his life to become [...]

    11. Well edited. Cant wait for next book by this author because I enjoyed her writing style.This is one of the most immature, weak, thoughtless and selfish heroes I have had the displeasure of meeting. He leaves her at a time when she needs him the most. Lets her down constantly. Horrid specimen. Totally unworthy.She is TSTL and sooo sweet and vulnerable. She deserves a GOOD man who can match her worth. I wish she had clocked him upside the head a few times. I wouldn't have minded if she slapped him [...]

    12. Rating - 4.5 stars. OH MY WOOOOORDDDDD! THIS IS SUPERRRRR COOOOOOOL! OH MY WOORDDDDDDDDD It's an amazing book! I had to read it in one go. ONE GO. And well, to be honest, this book had me at theprologue.This book is full of everything:Anticipation. Love. Heartbreak. Reunions. Tears. Smiles. Mysteries. Happy EndingD EVERYTHING POSSIBLE <3 This is one of the best books I've read lately and yes, I'm being honest,give this book a chance!It deserves it. I'm a fan of Holly now, it's a lovely text! [...]

    13. Second rate chances. There it goes into the big pile of regrets. It doesn’t even deserve a first chance. Sorry, bad pun, couldn’t resist.This book is about perfection. The perfect everything. the perfect romantic moment. the perfect proposal. the perfect jilting. HURRAH, and the perfect couple! The most perfectly annoying things about the book are the MCs. They are so full of themselves. And don’t even get me started on the names-***drumroll*** SAM and DELILAAAAAHHIf I realized it any earl [...]

    14. “For it is said that a love of epic proportions would stand the test of time from here until all eternity. For if he was the day and she was the night, one cannot be without the other.”Second Rate Chances tells the story of Sam and Lil. It begins with a prologue showing just how happy and very much in love this couple is. Unfortunately, their love story seems to have veered off course at some point. Immediately following the prologue, it’s three years later and Sam and Lil are thing of the [...]

    15. The concept of Amnesia doesn't really fail to intrigue me. There is always this part of me that ticks with curiosity when I get to read stories with people losing memories - how would they cope up? How could they start up all over again? Is losing their memory enough to mend the fences or people they broke? Would that be enough for second chances?Three hurtful years have passed since Sam walked out of Lil's life. Three hurtful years of therapy and coping up with life. They we’re once both blis [...]

    16. Second Rate Chances tells a sad story about redemption-a second chance. I don't believe this story meant for readers to cry, but the meaning behind everything can induce tears. I'm not crying, but in my mind Sam and Lil's story is tear worthy.The story begins with the prologue, and it's obvious that the happy couple is Sam and Lil. They're about to spend the rest of their lives together, but three years later and everything has changed. Sam and Lil are no longer together and we (the readers) hav [...]

    17. 4 STARS for the debut novel by Holly Stephens. Contemporary Romances normally have a pattern that makes the story predictable. When you are reading, you are waiting for your mental list to tick off items before you can get back to the love. This book didn't do that--REFRESHING! We begin with the promise of everything from Sam to Lil--Love, laughter, and a happy future together. They have invested in a home and see the same things sparkling in the distance.Three years later, Sam wakes up and can [...]

    18. This would have been a sweet, romantic quick read. But 1) I laughed at the absurdity of how Sam fell into a coma and the ridiculousness of his reaction when he woke up (i.e. "For a second I thought maybe I had been in a car accident and she was some crazy that hit me.") And 2) it was one of those frustrating books where the person doesn't know/remember the secret, and everyone else know, but they all keep him in the dark for the sake of dragging the story out.And the secret? It wasn't hard to fi [...]

    19. Aw This was such a sweet story. Sam has an accident leaving him with amnesia. He is missing the last 3 years of his life. The last thing he remembers is buying a house with his college sweetheart and the love of his life, Lil. He is told that the life as he remembers it no longer exists. He is now engaged to Chloe and is to be married in a few weeks. Sam has to come to terms with the man he has become and try to figure out what happened to alter the course of his life. Lil has been trying to mov [...]

    20. Samson and DelilahWho haven't thought about this names seems to be related.Creating Second Rate Chances has a peculiar taste. Holly Stephens is the master mind creating a master piece like this. I enjoyed reading every bits of this. They were brought together after all those years has passed. The answers that Lil searching for the long time has finally been answered. And same goes to Sam. I have to say the Karma is the worst bitch ever. I'm glad at the end it came to his senses what his been mis [...]

    21. 3.5 stars I think. The premise somehow reminded me of The Opportunist. Guy and girl break up. 3 years later, he has amnesia and is engaged to another person. But he remembers her - his real love. At the beginning, I thought maybe the author is just as frustrated as me and decided to write her own story based somewhat on that premise. Or maybe this is just me and my crazy obsession with TO talking hereThis was a sweet, quick read. It had the potential to be something bigger - if only the author d [...]

    22. 3.5 stars for me. I love second chances and this definitely was one. The BIG thing that separated them was stretched too long for me. The story danced around it for a while and I did have 2 guesses, and one of them was right. It was sad but for all the build up, it didnt have a BANG reveal. Loved both characters, but I really liked the confused Sam, he was so cute and sweet. The supporting friends were great. Overall i did enjoy this book, but the big secret wasnt a surprise to me and the reveal [...]

    23. What a great first book from Holly Stephens. I am not a big fan of contemporary romance novels but this one has changed my mind. The author gave the characters such great personalty's that you hope they are real. The language in the book is adult but its not over the top. I recommend getting a glass of wine and setting Pandora to "My Love or The Civil Wars Radio" channel while reading this book. I'm looking forward to the next book by Mrs. Stephens.

    24. 3.5 stars.This book started out SOOOOOO well. I was like 30-40% into it and dying to review it as "THE BEST BOOK EVER OMGOMG." Then around 42% it began it's slow decline into mediocrity. Booooooo. Hisssssssssss. The heroine's early displays of wit and cleverness--absent. The interactions between friends that gave the story depth and personality--a thing of the past. Really. It's horribly disappointing. There was so much potential, but in the end it just sort of nonchalantly fizzled out.
