HASH(0x939cc7a4) out of 5 stars Wow ummmm... 20 Aug. 2014
By Heather Lambright - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Part one of this three part book gave me high hopes for liking this story. But unlike a lot of books...this went nowhere near where I thought it would have gone.

The characters were unique personalities. You couldn't help but hope it would all work out. Though this isn't what I would call a feel good romance...it was a romance, just more of a realistic one than most of the people like me enjoy.

If your looking for a good book filled with realistic angst that keeps you wondering where things are going then this is a good book. If you want that feel good. "ahhh" romantic buzz as you drift off to sleep, maybe not so much.

overall it was good...not great,not fantastic, but definitely a good read. then again I like my "ahhh" factor.

HASH(0x939e10c0) out of 5 stars Scenes seemed too out of place at times 4 Dec. 2014
By FLPeter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I'm giving it 1 star because I gave up on it at the 25% e-book mark. I think the writer has talent, and the dialogue is intelligent. However, there were 3 parts in the early stages of this book in which the writing seemed too forced, or the "scenes" just didn't fit.
1) odd how the 2 guys just had this intensely bizarre bonding conversation over matrixes and Supermen vs. Batman, etc. those 3 pages just left me scratching my head, saying, "what was that all about". 2) the sister's reluctance to be tied to the tutor had potential...reminded me of the movie "parent Trap" when the kids do silly things to get the potential step mom to leave. But, sand in the gas tank? Calling cops to falsely report your brother driving erratically? This boarded on criminal behavior, and I just thought it was extreme in relation to the plot at the time. 3). Neil calling someone he has not seen in 10 years to follow him to the mansion to drop off the drunk car owner, just so he has a ride home? Did not make sense. Call a cab! The drunk friend lives in a mansion and can afford it! So, I hope this review makes sense. I think the writing and plot had potential, but I couldn't see continuing on when certain story lines were too extreme.

HASH(0xaa7da858) out of 5 stars An extremely accurate portrayal of young adults during the 2000s. 25 Aug. 2014
By Nicholas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Surfer Boy on the cover doesn't do much to convey the thoughtfulness and scope of Second Chances. Beginning in 2008, Second Chances follows Neil ans Dane as they struggle with the very real world financial problems of the time, and all the stress and complications they cause. Tanner presents an honest and believable setting through his characters, and allusions to pop culture such as internet slang, comic books, and anime. Balancing out the pop culture references is a healthy dose of classical literature and film. But these interests don't define Neil and Dane any more than their sexuality or financial situations do. Both characters are very strong, and Neil in particular is an extremely effective protagonist. His interactions with others actively evolve his relationships and drive the story forward.

My only criticism is that once or twice Neil launches into a detached, clinical analysis of his relationships with the characters. While this may be in keeping with his personality, I felt it reduced some of the emotional impact events in the story may have had.

I do wonder how accessible the book is to those who don't share some of the same experiences as the characters. I myself am gay, struggled with the same financial issues, and have a love for both the internet and classical literature, so the story pushes all of my buttons.

Lastly, the book is free, and I can't say no to a free book anymore than Neil probably could. Definitely recommended.

I really liked this story the relationship between Neil and Dane started out awkward and became very sweet once they got to know one another, I just could not put this down and yet I still want to read more about these two.When it comes to relationships it is never easy and yet sometimes it could be worth it if you really love someone faults and all. I can't wait to read what Bare Turner puts out next I am now hooked.

By MELinMN - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I enjoyed the storyline and the depth and development of the two leads.
I agree with another reader that this book was not a light, breezy read, but a more realistic telling of the stops and starts a relationship can go through. It wasn't always a comfortable read, but I stayed interested and by turns rooted for each MC and was torn about which direction they would/should go.
