Genre: Romance
Age: Adult

Themes: Prison, Parolee, Second Chance,


A butch lesbian parolee. The pretty pansexual nurse who got away. Is this their second chance at a happily ever after?

Finn is finally out of prison, which is great. Having no job, no car, and no place to sleep except her cousin’s couch? Not so great. Plus, her felony theft conviction isn’t doing wonders for her employment prospects, so she can’t afford her migraine meds without the public clinic.

The last thing she ever expected was for the gal who stole her heart to come walking down that clinic’s hallway: Vivi, the manicure-loving nurse who spent two years fighting the prison system to get proper medical care for her patients, including Finn.

Finn could never believe she imagined the attraction and affection between them. But acting on that in prison, especially as nurse and patient, had been a serious No Way. She’s had eight months to get over Vivi, who abruptly left her job without saying goodbye. Finn is over it. Honest! It’s totally and completely fine.

Except Vivi, here and now, doesn’t seem fine. And Finn couldn’t live with herself if she didn’t try to help.

Is fate offering Finn a second chance? Or is finding love as likely as finding a job with health insurance?

A high heat contemporary F/F romance novella with a guaranteed HEA. Detailed content warnings are available in the book’s front matter and on the author’s website.

Thank you so much to the author for a review copy of this book.

I really enjoyed this short novella. I am learning that I am a fan of second chance romances and this one was a good one. I really liked that we got a bit of a hint of the relationship between Finn and Vivi’s relationship before Finn was released and their second chance started. I also really enjoyed how the characters were trying to navigate a complicated situation but wanting to be together.

I thought that the awkward moments and making assumptions felt real between the two, as they both had pasts and assumptions, but hadn’t been able to talk to each other about their feelings when they were at the prison. Honestly, I wish that I could have learned more about Finn and Vivi, their lives with and without each other. This book could have been 100 pages more and I would have eaten it up.

For a novella though, it really satisfied the desire to read a second chance romance, between two women with complicated lives and how they were going to navigate being in each others lives. I really enjoyed this one and would totally recommend it to anyone who likes F/F second chance romances.

Rating: 4/5
