Review copy provided in exchange for an honest review.

When Stella Jo Chandler gets an offer to work at the Second Chance Ranch celebrity rehab facility right after graduating from Texas A&M, she’s tempted to turn it down. She wants to help real people with real problems, not spoiled celebrities going on vacation for publicity. But growing up on her family’s ranch left her with a love of horses that draws her to the opportunity. How bad can babysitting a bunch of strung out celebrities be?

What she didn’t count on was being roped into a tangled mess with infamous rocker and three-time rehab drop out Van Ransom on her first day. And she sure didn’t expect to feel the overwhelming attraction that pulls her to the man who has more issues than she can count on both hands. Like the hotel rooms and tour buses he’s famous for trashing, the havoc he could wreak on Stella’s heart would be irreparable.

Van isn’t at Second Chance for publicity or because he’s suffering from “exhaustion”. He’s on the brink of destruction, and he needs the kind of help Stella isn’t sure she can give. But without her, he'll lose everything. Because he’s on his last second chance.

While Last Second Chance isn't my favorite book by Caisey Quinn, I did like it a lot! I'm a huge fan of the Kylie Ryans books and because this book connects to it, I was so very thrilled to be on the tour. Like I said it isn't my favorite book and there are some flaws, overall it was a pretty good book. I'm just really critical with these types of books I suppose and had expected a little bit more.

I liked the characters a lot. Both Stella and Van appealed to me and I loved reading in their points of view. Maybe Van just a little bit more. They both had a difficult past and somehow, even though they're both total opposites, they're pretty damn great together and that's what I love about books by Caisey Quinn. The dynamic main characters and how they have real chemistry. 

As I said before this book has some flaws. I guess you can call this book a bit cliche. It ended where I've seen a lot of other new adult books end. I won't say anything about it for the sake of spoilers but I must admit that I was a bit disappointed there. But that's probably just my personal taste. Overall I think I wish this book had wowed me more, like the Kylie Ryans series did. Of course this is about totally other characters and can not be compared but still...

As always Caisey Quinn's writing was flowing nicely, witty and very, very sexy. I love the way she writes romantic scenes. Let me tell ya, I had to fan myself several times. Some of these scenes were pure hotness!

So all in all, Last Second Chance was not my favorite book ever by Caisey Quinn but I still did like it and would definitely recommend it to fans of the genre. And I will definitely read the next book in this series. Bring it on!
