I do not like second chance romance, it just doesn't work for me. Not really sure why not, but there it is. That said, I was a little unsure about this book since Tess and Nick dated before and she dumped him.
I can't say I'm completely surprised that I loved this book anyway. It's a Jennifer Crusie book, so that's a point in it's favor. I ended up loving both Tess and Nick (Tess wasn't a surprise, but Nick really was). Nick was, at times, two different people. He could be really sweet and helpful, which Tess loved, or he could be the politically correct lawyer who focused on nothing else but his career (which Tess really hated).
