Unforeseen Heartbeat by Maureen Mayer Book Blitz

Title: Unforeseen Heartbeat

Series: Second Chances #2

Author: Maureen Mayer

 Release Date: February 24, 2014 

Used… Broken… Confused…

It only took one drunken mistake four years ago for Maddie Harrington to learn that when you fully give yourself over to a man, you should never expect anything in return. Since that night, her views on love have become distorted, believing men would only want her for the pleasure her body could bring them. She in turn finds herself hooking up with random guys, but never keeps them around long enough to see if there could possibly be something more.

That is…until Hunter Bryant enters the picture.

When the handsome pre-med student shows up in the right place at the right time, captivating her with his stormy gaze, she immediately pushes him away, thinking he’s no different than any other guy. The deeper Hunter delves into her life, trying to break through her iron-clad walls, the more she begins to question whether she is truly capable of opening her heart up to another man.

Maddie soon finds herself forced to make a difficult decision, one that will forever change both of their lives. Will she shut Hunter out of her life for good or will she finally open up her heart and allow herself the life she never dreamed she deserved?



 5 stars 
So, first this is book 2 in the series.  BUT, I read it without reading book 1 and had no problem understanding what was going on. Book 1 is called Relinquishing Liberty and is about Maddie's best friend. Now I have bought both books because I loved this one so much I just have to read the first and I know I will be reading this book 2 again. This book grab my attention right from the start. I read half of it in one sitting then my kids started whining about being hungry and I had to stop. I couldn't wait to be able to sit down and finish it. Maddie was a little cliche with the blonde party girl college student and I didn't really like her but the more the story went on the more I fell in love with her and was rooting for her, or more like rooting for Hunter to help break down her walls. Hunter was sexy and so sweet and walked in to Maddie's life with no warning. This story was fun, exciting, sweet and sexy. A must read! I can't wait to start the first book now and see what else Maureen Mayer has in the future. I just found me a new 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 (Second Chances #2.5)


My hands landed on the warm, soft skin at the swell of her hips where her shirt had ridden up. I didn’t know if I was afraid to move or if I just wasn’t ready to let her go, but we both remained frozen in place until she stumbled a bit, causing my hands to slide higher up along her ribs. When she finally caught her balance, my hands were just at the edge of her sports bra, and I could feel the weight of her breasts as they grazed against my thumbs. This was dangerous territory. I could feel myself quickly becoming aroused by the scorching heat of her delicate skin, and I knew Shayne Jr. was about to make an unwelcomed appearance. I had to think of something else and fast! Cold showers, kittens, little baby Jesus, grandma naked…yup that did it!
