Product description

About the Author

Maureen Mayer was born, raised and currently resides in Buffalo, NY with her loving and supportive family and boyfriend of 9+ years. She’s always had a love for the outdoors, and when the city isn’t buried under snow, she can be found hiking, fishing, camping or lying on the beach. She’s a sucker for off-color humor, but holds a sweet spot for sick and twisted horror films. When she’s not writing, you can find her curled up in bed with her kindle, diving into a steamy romance novel and falling in love with the latest book boyfriend.

Bittersweet Catastrophe is book #2.5 in the Second Chances Series, Having read the previous two books in the series I was excited to get started on this follow on story for Shane & Liberty. I was given an ARC by the author in exchange for an honest review so here goes...

This book was not what I was expecting at all!!!

If you are looking for a happy go lucky extended epilogue with a smidge of drama this is NOT the book for you!!!

This book is harsh and heart breaking and incredibly sad, to be honest I spent the whole book on the verge of tears.

If I hadn’t have been given this book for review I probably wouldn’t have finished, this is in no way a reflection on the quality of writing because as always Maureen Mayer’s books are beautifully written. I may have given up simply because it was just far too sad for me!!!

This book sees Shane & Liberty dealing with a really s***ty hand being thrown at them whilst pregnant with twins.

I don’t want to give too much away as it really will spoil it for future readers.

This whole book was heartbreaking and to be honest not really my cup of tea.

I like my books heavily tilted towards happily ever after and to be honest I don’t really enjoy too many reminders that life is short and that fate can be fickle.

Please don’t think that I hated it because I didn’t!!! It just made me sad, by the time I had finished I just wanted to curl up into a ball with my kids and cry like a baby.

I also want to say Maureen Mayer if you ever read this..... You almost gave me a heart attack at the end of the last chapter, I was actually shouting at my ereader!!!

I gave this book 3 stars purely and simply because it was just too serious and far too sad for me.

I absolutely loved this book. I cried my eyes out at the end as it brought back memories of my son having cancer and getting pneumonia, we nearly lost him also but luckily he survived. I can't wait for your next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars SAR Blog Review 4 Sept. 2014
By Secretly Adorkable Readers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This synopsis makes me a tad bit nervous but loved it! It is a bit shorter than the others so I read it within 2-3 hrs. This is a continuation of Shayne and Liberty from book 1 starting with their pregnancy that was announced in the 2nd book. This book left me in unexpected tears and was truly a bittersweet and beautiful.

"The day that fire inside you burns out, my flame will extinguish right along with you...because I can't live in a world where you don't exist."

I wanted to strangle Shayne more in this book due to his attitude and insinuations toward Liberty but then I doubled over in laughter over his alpha male tendencies that made it up.

"Love tends to grab a hold of you when you least expect it...the key is to never let it go."

I cannot wait for Brett's story. I have felt sorry for him since the beginning because he found Liberty first and he still loves her since day one. I want to see him fall down on his knees with his own true love so he can let Liberty go and be her best friend without tearing his heart out in the process. Hope you enjoy as I did. This is a great series!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cried my eyes out! 18 Aug. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

Grab your tissues, a bottle of wine, and get ready for one of the best books of the year. I always love MM, but Bittersweet Catastrophe is so emotional that I fell in love with her writing style on a whole new level. I ugly cried, you know the kind that leaves you sniffling for hours. If you like a good tear jerker, you will love this.

I cant begin to describe what I felt, It all caught me off guard, I loved it, I cried so hard, I love the series, and I hope she continues to write because she is amazing. My favorite. No one has moved as much as she did with Liberty and Shaynes story, as well as Maddies and Hunters. I hope Brett finds love too..lol Thank you Maureen.
