Synopsis:
Our Second Chance by Author C.D. Taylor is a tale of forgiveness, redemption, and love. It demonstrates how the power of healing can strengthen the bond between family, friends, and lovers.

Emily Mills lives a life of opulence and luxury in Los Angeles but can’t shake the feeling that there is something more out there for her. It isn’t the picture perfect life her social circles expect and she knows something is missing. Unwilling to let happiness be a distant wish, she boards a plane to chase her dreams of becoming a lawyer in New York City. It doesn’t take long for her past to reappear with her former best friend from college, Jake Bradford. Knowing the feelings she’s held for Jake all these years, she still tries to convince herself that she isn’t worthy of any sort of love from him. Conceding to a fraction of her desire, Emily strikes a deal with Jake to become steamy friends with benefits. Soon her passionate bond with him turns out to be way more intense than she expects and she finds herself wishing her emotional scars didn’t rear their ugly head and destroy everything she’s worked for.

Can Emily forgive herself and those who have hurt her in the past to become the person she knows she can be? Or will the roadblocks in front of her cause her to make the decision to run like she’s been doing most of her life? Book 1 of this thrilling new 3-book series will leave you panting for more and cheering for second chances.

Excerpt

I would always carry a certain sadness for the death of my relationship with my family, but maybe I was numb at this point. I wanted to forgive and forget the things that’d happened between all of us, but I couldn’t manage to just sweep it all under the rug. 
The seats on my flight filled up quickly, and soon we were climbing to an altitude that somehow made me calmer. I packed my iPad for something to do on the flight, and when I pulled it out of my large bag, the photo of Jake and me fell into my lap. I let out a sigh and held it in my hand once more.
“Isn’t he a handsome fellow?” The passenger next to me commented.
“Yes, he was, thank you.”
“Was? Did something happen to him dear?”
I couldn’t help but want to talk to my new acquaintance. She was the grandmotherly type, with salt and pepper hair and glasses that sat low on the bridge of her nose. I felt strangely at ease with her.
“Oh, no, nothing like that,” I said. “He was my best friend in law school. I haven’t seen him since we graduated.”
“Is that why you’re heading to New York? Will he be there waiting for you?” She looked hopeful.
“No, I’m actually moving there. I have a job and a place waiting for me. I’m excited about it all. A fresh start, if you know what I mean.” I fell silent. I felt a blush crawl up my neck as she waited for me to continue. “He moved back to Texas the last time I’d heard, anyway. He was supposed to set up a law office there.” I offered a small smile. I still had a sense of pride for Jake. He’d set out to accomplish his goals and dreams.
“Honey, I know all about starting over. Everyone needs a clean slate at least once in their lives. But can I give you a word of advice?”
I nodded. “Sure.”
She grabbed the photo from my hand. “Always tell those you care about how you feel, even if you’re afraid to. The one thing I’ve learned about life is that you can’t go through it with regrets. Someday you’ll be taking your last breath and wish you’d said or done something, and it will be too late then.”

AUTHOR BIO

C.D. Taylor began writing as an item to check off her bucket list. She resides in the southernmost part of Illinois, right on the mighty Mississippi river. She enjoys the quiet country life with her husband, son and the many farm animals that make up the rest of the family. C.D. decided that farm life was just a little too mundane, so she started writing erotica to spice things up, so far so good. C.D. entered cosmetology school right out of High School and practiced the art of hair styling for 12 years. When she isn’t writing, she can usually be found sitting around a table making people laugh. She has always wanted to be a standup comic. She loves pulling practical jokes, dresses up in a costume every Halloween and believes that dancing is the key to a happy life (even if you aren’t a good dancer). She believes that life shouldn’t be taken too seriously, we will never get out alive anyway. More than anything, C.D. is a kid at heart, she doesn’t believe in bedtimes, eating everything on her plate, or having ice cream only for dessert. Her favorite quote is by Dr. Seuss…”Why fit in, when you were born to stand out.”
