Review: Say Something (Second Chances #6) by Mari Carr

Third mistake’s a charm.

Second Chances, Book 6

Georgie Russell has always been a full-steam-ahead, spur-of-the-moment, no-looking-back kind of girl. But as midnight on New Year’s Eve rolls around with her friends coming up with wine-induced, second-chance goals, all eyes turn to her.

They all know her “runaway bride” history. Three exes attest to her aversion to vows of any kind. Maybe it’s time she tried to make amends, especially to ex-fiancé number three. The one she literally left at the altar—Nick Hammel.

Nick has spent the better part of a year working overtime to get over Georgie. As a divorce attorney surrounded by broken marriages day in and day out, he figures she did him a favor.

But when they wind up at the same bar one night, he realizes he hasn’t moved on at all. All it takes is the feel of her arms around him, and his heart is ready to jump out of the lonely frying pan to get close to her fire…even if it means risking another serious burn.

Warning: Contains a free-spirited florist who knows a thing or two about sowing wild oats, and a jaded divorce lawyer who thinks it might be worth risking a few thorns to stop and smell her roses. Best accompanied by a glass of wine or (and) a couple of lemon drop shots.

Seems like I have been waiting for Georgie’s story forever!  I have enjoyed this entire series.  The premise of a group of friends making New Year’s resolutions – and then sticking to them – was too good to pass up.  This Second Chance series was rather well done.

Six women, all from different walks of life, and different life experience.  The one thing that ties them all together is the condo complex they live in.  They have met, liked each other and formed an amazingly tight knit group.  Close enough that every Thursday they get together for wine and companionship, taking turns hosting this weekly event.

It is New Year’s Eve.  The girls are celebrating – commiserating – together.  Resolutions for the coming year are made.  But not just any resolution.  These resolutions actually become life changing/affirming actions taken by each woman to attain life goals.  The stories are quite beautiful, and all different.  As mentioned, each woman is from a different life experience and each story reflects that, in spite of some overlap in common activities.  I love how the author weaves each book together but makes completely different stories.

Georgie’s resolutions – to look up all her ex-fiancés, there are three, and apologize to each.  She needs to put them behind her so she can move on and find happiness.  A rather noble goal if you ask me.  The stories behind each “runaway bride” story is fun and entertaining.  The resolution for each story is usually surprising and not at all what Georgie expected.  But that is what makes life interesting.

If you haven’t read any of this series, any lover of erotic contemporary romance, with a bit of kink, needs to check it out.  Start anywhere.  Although I wouldn’t start with Say Something first.  This one does give away some spoilers for the other books.  But otherwise, they can each be read as stand-alone stories.  They each cover the same time period, but from a different point of view.

Mari Carr has, again, written a fun and entertaining story that had my emotions all over the place.  Say Something was a very nice conclusion to this wonderful series.
