For Donovan Pate, the lake town of Evergreen Cove is a minefield of tough memories—including the day he had to let go of Sofie Martin. Years later, he still can’t forget the taste of her lips and the feel of her killer curves. He knows he’s too damaged, that he should stay away for her own good. But what the head says and the heart wants are two very different things…

Seven years ago, Donovan broke Sofie’s heart. Now her career depends on playing nice in order to pull off the charity fundraiser of the decade. She vows to keep things professional…yet working by his side every day doesn’t make it easy to fight temptation, and it isn’t long before she finds herself falling for this bad boy all over again. But loving Donovan means helping him face his past – so they can fight for a future together.


“Rescuing the Bad Boy” was truly amazing and I completely fell in love with the storyline and characters from the very beginning. I honestly didn’t know if I would enjoy the second book in the Second Chance series as much as I did the first one, but Jessica Lemmon managed to blow my expectations right of the water. I absolutely loved reading every minute of it, and couldn’t have been happier with the outcome. I completely fell in love with Sofie and Donovan, and I loved their personalities and chemistry together. They were a perfect match and I am so thrilled to have been able to read their incredibly heartwarming and romantic story. I definitely had a lot of feels in this book. :) I loved Ms. Lemmon’s writing style, and how the book was told from both Sofie and Donovan’s alternating POV. I also thought the secondary characters were wonderful, and I loved seeing some familiar faces from previous books/series by the ever-so-talented, Jessica Lemmon.  The ending was perfect and I thought the epilogue was the icing on the Devil Dog cake. ;) “Rescuing the Bad Boy” was absolutely phenomenal, and I cannot possibly sing enough praises for it. I am completely in love with the Second Chance series, and I cannot wait to read Faith and Connor’s story in “A Bad Boy for Christmas!”
