A low drama, full of sarcastic snark, second chance romance Take Two was a ton of fun to read.
When their marriage imploded the first time, both Liam and Nya found themselves lucky to actually be friends on the other side of divorce, but when their daughter made her birthday wish out loud, they suddenly found themselves in Vegas and giving their marriage a “take two”.
While Liam never wanted to end their first go round, he is all in for this second chance. He’s never lost feelings for Nya and he cannot wait to spend the rest of his life with the love of his life. Nya has other thoughts going into this second chance. She gives them a six month trial at best. While she ended things the first time, she also isn’t ready to jump into the feelings that this marriage will bring, which also means she isn’t ready to jump back into bed with her hunky husband, even with Liam trying his best to whittle her will power away.
Liam has the best sarcastic snark while also having a wonderful sweet side. He is a devoted father and completely loves his wife. He is simply the best. Not to discredit Nya, she is just leary of getting hurt. While she ended things the first time, she felt justified to do so and isn’t quite to ready to open her heart once again and have it ripped out if things don’t work out.
Take Two is really about a couple who does know each other, but also relearning what makes the other tick, relearning how to love, and how to cohabitate while being parents and still finding those special moments and appreciating them. It’s a beautiful story of life at a stage where two people would have already been past the lovely dovey phase, but due to their circumstances they find beauty in each other and don’t take for granted what they already lost.
Who says you can’t marry the same mistake twice?
Certainly not Nya Perez…because that’s precisely what she’s done.
Liam Watts is the bane of her existence.
Her first love. Father of her child. And breaker of her heart.
Oh, he’s also her ex-husband. Well, he was, anyway…right up til this morning, when she woke up beside him in a Vegas hotel room, sheathed in satin and tulle with a sinking feeling in the pit of her stomach.
If it were just between the two of them, an annulment would be the obvious solution. After all, they wouldn’t be the first to marry and divorce at the little white chapel in the span of twenty-four hours.
But their daughter’s greatest wish has just been granted, and if there’s one heart Nya wants to protect more than her own, it’s Ellie’s.
So, she promises to give it six months.
There’s no way she’ll be swayed by his thick southern drawl, those well-defined abs, or that annoyingly delectable scruff lining his cheeks.
Nope. She’s got it all under control. Six months of playing house, then everything can go back to the way it was before.
But first she’ll have to muddle through marriage with Liam—take two.
