Forget a second chance at love—they’re gearing up for round three.
After an ugly divorce, Jasmine moves back to her hometown penniless, alone and ready to swear off men for good. Unfortunately, her new landlord turns out to be someone she knows well, and the only man she’s ever really fallen for. Now she just has to remember her most important lesson—love is far too risky a gamble.
Finn can’t believe it when the girl who got away—twice—shows back up in his life. He let his guard down with her before, and both times she left him high and dry without a word. No matter how much he tells himself not to sign up for that ride again, he can’t help but wonder if this time things could be different.
Jasmine and Finn fight both one another and their feelings, but it’s impossible to ignore the attraction between them. Can they get overcome their past, or will the third time end in heartbreak as well?
To be completely honest it had been a little while since I read the previous two novellas in Jayce Carter's Ready or Not series, so I kind of forgot how much I freaking loved this series and started Third Time Lucky when I really should have been going to bed. Do I regret that decision? Not at all. After that, isn't that why coffee was invented? All joking aside, I loved this novella. Like the title says, this was a third chance romance. Jasmine, who grew up watching her step-father break her mother's heart, believed that love destroys. In her mind, it would never work out with Finn because she loved him with her whole heart. So every time they found themselves together, Jasmine would always find a way to run. This time, both Jasmine and Finn's hearts are guarded. And like before, it doesn't take long for there chemistry to ignite. Truth starts to come to light and when all is said and done, it's up to Jasmine to decide if she's ready to stop running.
If you are a fan of fun and quirky romance with a hint of heartache, then you will love Third Time Lucky. Jayce Carter's writing is fun. She makes me laugh and giggle all throughout this series. The characters are fantastic and the romance is amazing. I can't recommend this novella enough.
Jayce Carter lives in Southern California with her husband and two spawns. She originally wanted to take over the world but realized that would require wearing pants. This led her to choosing writing, a completely pants-free occupation. She has a fear of heights yet rock climbs for fun and enjoys making up excuses for not going out and socializing.
