The Second Time Around (Belanger Creek Ranch Book 1)
Gloria Antypowich
The Second Time Around is the first book in the Belanger Creek Range series; if the following books are even half as good as this one the series is sure to be a success. The Second Time Around quickly drew me in and held me captive until the very last page. Let’s meet the main characters. First there is Dr. Frank Lamonte, DVM. Frank is very depressed; recently she has had several emotional blows the latest and hardest hitting being a broken engagement. Second let’s meet Colt Thompson. He recently divorced his wife who had cheated on him. He is determined to protect himself from women. He will not allow his heart to be broken again. He is an acrimonious and sarcastic man. Ok I’ve set the stage. We have two damaged but very hot adults.

Frank’s boss insists she leave town. He is concerned for her and tells her to leave town until she gets her head on straight again. He wants her to take time and heal her weakened emotions. He feels she needs to go where there will not be constant reminders. Determined to heal quickly Frank heads to Belanger Creek Ranch. When she meets the owner the sparks begin to fly. Now Colt enters the picture; he is the owner of the Belanger Creek Ranch. One look at Frank and his emotions begin to sizzle. He’s determined not to like her; he is sure she is a cheating liar just like his ex. He is so determined to protect his heart that he is tempted to marry Shauna Lee Holt his friend in and out of the bedroom.

The Second Time Around is an entertaining and fun book to read. I didn’t want to put it down and didn’t want it to end. I had to laugh at Frank and Colt of course they are going to get together but who would make the first move. Or at least we hope they get together will either of them take a chance on the other. Take a strong independent woman and add a strong and sensitive man and you get The Second Time Around.
