Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.

Today, we're heading to the links as we explore a second chance romance title that just so happens to share its title with our virtual destination.  Interesting...well, actually it makes perfect sense if you knew more about our leading man, but seeing as I've yet to properly introduce you, you're still in the dark.  Don't worry...I'm working on it.  Gear up and let's go!  Today's ebook of choice is ready to swing right onto your reading list....

About the book...
In high school, Charlotte Windham was a typical student going through an awkward phase -- glasses and all. She harbored a crush on Garrett Stephens, the teen heartthrob everyone can’t help but fall for during that unfortunate ugly duckling phase of one’s teen years. Flash forward fifteen years later, and Charlotte and Garrett have a second chance encounter at a Los Angeles restaurant. However, this time around, Charlotte has leveled the playing field. She’s a bestselling novelist and no longer “Glasses,” the humiliating nickname Garrett called her in high school. In short, she’s a catch now and, thanks to corrective eye surgery, it’s not just her eyes that see better…so does her heart! Garrett hasn’t fared poorly either, transforming from teen heartbreaker to adult lothario. A now successful professional golfer, he’s recently suffered a major setback in the form of a possible career-ending injury. With the upper hand, can Charlotte forgive Garrett for his past ways, and for his more recent Don Juan lifestyle? Will she even want to? And, can Garrett change his ways for a second chance with Charlotte, who may just be the perfect fit for him?

A game of putt putt was never THIS exciting!

Charlotte and Garrett make a rather odd couple, if we look at their teenage years. One was a player, on and off the golf course... the other, a tutor, in the legit academia way. Grant it, it sounds like the PERFECT SET UP for a Contemporary Romance, but hear me out...we're grounding you in reality, first.  If you've traversed the hallowed halls of HS, you know for the most part the two nary meet... but it doesn't stop the heart from wanting. Flash forward 10+ years and a change encounter turns into a second chance... if only he can get beyond the chase, and she can meld the past with the present for a chance at a future. 

The antics that transpire, the attraction they both keep fighting, and the masterminded plans from those with their best interests at heart that unfold, will keep you turning pages long into the night.  It was hard to watch Charlotte falling back on her previous notions of Garrett without considering everything right in front of her.  I know they say people don't change, and in short spans of time, perhaps...but in the longer range, it just might be possible.  They aren't the perfect characters, but they may just be perfect for each other... but you best watch out when the sparks fly because they'll definitely leave scorch marks behind.

While I wasn't prepared to like Garrett...because honestly, until we start to see another side of him, I wanted one of the golf course holes to open up a portal and swallow him whole...but he eventually grew on me. Yup.  Mr. I'm-a-charmer turned out to be actually charming and not in a get-in-her-pants sorta way. Charlotte, on the other hand, I saw much of myself in from the start, so calling her friend was no hard task. The changes they've been through and continue to navigate, only endear them to you more... including that of the supporting cast of friends and family, especially Fi! All the snark delivered with heart, all the friendship and love to spare, truly made this an enjoyable read. 

Recommended read for Contemporary and Second Chance Romance fans that enjoy some humor and heat with their heart.
