Therese Beharrie is one of my favorite author discoveries of 2018. I read and adored two books from her and I knew that at some point, I would go have to go back and read her backlist as well. When she offered me the chance to read her newest, Second Chance with Her Billionaire, I was more than a little excited, even more so, when she mentioned that it was an angsty second chance romance. This book was just what I was expecting. It was heartwarming and hit me right in the feels.

What I love the most about Therese's books are her characters. You can tell that she puts a lot of thought and attention into writing them and it shows throughout her books. All of the characters in Second Chance with Her Billionaire resonated with me. Summer, the heroine, in particular, was a character that I easily warmed up to. She was smart, vulnerable, and equally awkward. I think I saw a lot of myself in her and I connected very much with her desire to want to keep her family happy even though there were secrets personally hurting her. Wyatt was an equally endearing and mature character. Therese's heroes are my favorite kind of heroes, soft and sweet, but also adorable dummies when it comes to the women they love. He was the sort of man who was driven and successful, but never truly forgot his roots. His past is heartbreaking, but I think it made him all the more admirable given how much he had achieved.

Summer and Wyatt used to be married and they are forced to spend the week together at her parents' anniversary party. I think the estranged-spouses trope is one that's underrated, but I also think it's one that can be difficult to get right. Thankfully, I 100% trust Therese with stories such as this one because I know she's an author who writes strong relationships as well as couples that talk. There were many misunderstandings that led to Summer and Wyatt breaking up in the first place, and it was hard watching them reminisce their time together because they were obviously a great couple together. Circumstances and the universe were not on their side the first time, however. Add to that the burden of Summer's secrets she was being forced to keep didn't help. Even after their breakup, these two were so obviously in love with each other. They only needed to have a sit-down to unload their emotions. Let me tell you, the scene when they finally do that was just *chef's kiss*. It was emotional and had me low-key sobbing in a corner.

Second Chance with Her Billionaire truly was a gem of a story. I look forward to reading Summer's sister's story next. I have no doubt it will be another amazing story from this author. If you like your romance novels with a lot of heart and wit, I can't recommend Therese Beharrie's books enough. She is an absolute favorite of mine!
