Ten years ago when Shane Maguire chose the Marines as his escape from some trouble of his own making, he only regretted one thing—leaving Sinclair Smith behind. Despite his best intentions, she ended up as the one that got away. Now he’s back, determined to reclaim everything he gave up, including Sinclair.
Sinclair is immune to Shane’s charms. She’s immune to stolen kisses behind the gym. And she’s definitely immune to that maneuver he did in the back seat of his car… Okay, maybe her hormones are susceptible, but she has absolutely no desire to risk anything on the bad boy who broke all his promises.
When a little emergency lands her at his mercy, he offers her a deal she can’t refuse. And this time, she’ll show Shane what it means to be left wanting…

Fabulous second chance romance!!!
This is a book 3 in the Love Emergency series and it features Sinclair Smith and Shane Maguire. Teenage lovers separated too soon and 10 years later he's back in his hometown. All the sparks are still there but will explanations be enough for forgiveness?
I adore Shane! He works hard at what he wants and refuses to give up a second time. I especially love the epilogue! Very funny and very sexy!
I WANT A WILLOW TREE!!!
Second Chance Perfection
Samanthe Beck has another hit on her hands.
Full disclosure: My girl-crush on Sinclair Smith began in book one of Beck's Love Emergency series. She was the protective big sister whose sassy personality almost eclipsed the heroine's. I've been anxious for her story ever since. It was well worth the wait. She's just as fiery, independent, and stubborn, which makes her perfect for Shane Maguire.
Now there's a sexy hero who's going to make hearts flutter and panties melt. I have a slight aversion to alphas. By slight I mean I've never met one I didn't want to neuter. Our man Shane weaved back and forth over that alpha line, earning him the side eye for the first part of the story. In the second half he either chilled his controlling ways or his repeated attempts to win back Sinclair's heart wore me down. It's a toss up. Either way, it's a certainty that if I think a hero is too alpha, other readers are going to fall quick & hard, elevating him to the top of their BBF list.
We met most of the secondary characters in the previous books. It was so much fun seeing them again. Sinclair and Savannah's parents are still the sweet, funny parents we all wish we'd had. Then there's Savannah, Beau, Hunter, Madison and a passel of little ones I couldn't keep track of. Boy, have they been having fun since we last saw them!
I doubt we'll see him again in a starring role, but I have to give honorable mention to Shane's boss. He had a plain spoken way of delivering sage one-liners that was hilarious. I completely adored him.
The story hooked me immediately and held me captive until the last word. I truly did not want this book to end. It was sweet, funny, emotional, and steamy-all delivered in that incomparable Samanthe Beck style. It will definitely go on my keeper shelf to be reread.
If you haven't read this series yet, treat yourself now. Emergency Attraction can be read as a standalone, but you'll get so much more out of it if you read Emergency Engagement and Emergency Delivery first.
Samanthe Beck never fails to bring us truly unforgettable, deliciously sexy heroes and she doesn't disappoint in this book. Shane was all the above and more and Sinclair was a perfect match for him. There's plenty of sizzle between them and their story is a fun ride.
The only regret Shane has is leaving Sinclair behind when he joined the Marines. He should have at least told her why but he's back now and willing to do whatever it takes to get her back. As expected Sinclair isn't willing to go along with Shane's plans. Perhaps a little revenge will help her finally get over him!
I highly recommend this one.
