Unforeseen Heartbeat by Maureen Mayer

Second Chances Book #2
Publish Date:  February 23, 2014

From Goodreads

Used… Broken… Confused…

It only took one drunken mistake four years ago for Maddie Harrington to learn that when you fully give yourself over to a man, you should never expect anything in return. Since that night, her views on love have become distorted, believing men would only want her for the pleasure her body could bring them. She in turn finds herself hooking up with random guys, but never keeps them around long enough to see if there could possibly be something more.

That is…until Hunter Bryant enters the picture.

When the handsome pre-med student shows up in the right place at the right time, captivating her with his stormy gaze, she immediately pushes him away, thinking he’s no different than any other guy. The deeper Hunter delves into her life, trying to break through her iron-clad walls, the more she begins to question whether she is truly capable of opening her heart up to another man.

Maddie soon finds herself forced to make a difficult decision, one that will forever change both of their lives. Will she shut Hunter out of her life for good or will she finally open up her heart and allow herself the life she never dreamed she deserved?

My Review:

Oh My Gosh… I was lucky enough to read book 1, Unreliquishing Liberty, and book 2, Unforeseen Heartbeat back to back.   I highly recommend this.   The characters from book 1 are carried over and have big parts in the second book.   This can be read as a standalone, but knowing the history will add so much to the story.

Maddie is broken.  She is sassy and sweet, but not so trusting when it comes to men.   She has put herself into the thought that she will never meet the right person, so one night stands are her only option.   Then she meets Hunter.   He refuses to have a one night stand, showing her how much more she deserves.   I cannot decide if I like the almost sex scenes or the actual sex scenes better, they were both absolutely amazing. 

Robbie, Maddie’s gay roommate, was one of my favorite characters.   With him and his boyfriend walking around naked most of the time, I was laughing at all the nicknames Maddie was able to come up with for him.   Their friendship was perfect.  He took care of her like only a roommate and friend can.  Standing by her when she didn’t know which end was up and helping her find her way to her happily ever after.    I am hoping Maureen Mayer will share more of Robbie in future books in this series.


I definitely recommend you read this book.
