The Second Chance #1

She may be out of jail, but she’s far from being free.

When twenty-four-year-old Mickey Mercer walks out of the Denver Women’s Correctional Facility, she has two things on her mind: the friends she left behind and the rough road ahead. All she has in the outside world are a vengeful ex, a run-down ranch, a pickup truck ... and an unlikely ally—the cop who gives her a ride home. Kerrick is bossy and irritating. He’s also a big, sexy hunk of distraction. She’s torn between sending him on his way and giving in to the desire sizzling between them.

Detective Kerrick McKinley’s job is to protect and serve. The job consumes his life, until he gives a pretty, prickly ex-con a ride on a dusty road. But when they discover something is wrong out on Mickey’s ranch, Kerrick must either steer clear, or stand between her and the danger that prowls her range. She may be out of prison, but she’s still in trouble … too bad there’s nothing sexier than trouble in tight blue jeans.

This unlikely couple must look deeper to learn that sometimes people aren’t what they seem. Sometimes they’re better.


I resigned myself to hoofing it up the road. Step by step, I distanced myself from the prison. The farther I got, the better I felt. My meager steps turned into long strides. My rounded shoulders straightened. With each step, the dirt I kicked up buried my past.

Twenty minutes later, the prison faded from view. The road ahead twisted and turned with nothing in sight. Leaving the confines of the Denver Women’s Correctional Facility, I didn’t expect my lack of resources to confine me in a new type of hell.

The sun sat high in the sky and I was well on my way to sunburnt limbs. Leaning against a signpost on the side of the road, my eyes searched for cars leaving the prison. Maybe someone would be kind enough to give me a ride.

The hot breeze rattled the sign above my head. When I looked up, I laughed. It said Correctional facility area. Do not pick up hitchhikers. I continued on the dusty path, knowing that the universe had just flipped me off.

My Thoughts

Set Free is the first book in the Second Chance Series which tells a story about ex-convict, Mickey, who returned to her family ranch to find out that nearly all of her assets are taken away by her ex-boyfriend who put her in jail. Then, Detective McKinley who kept appearing in her life after giving her a ride home.

I really love this story. Mickey is a really brave woman who had endure so much but she was not afraid to give again. Her love and loyalty are something that I enjoy. Kerrick is a great guy who was hurt once and he was like married to his job. So when Mickey came to his life, he got scared of hurting her.

Every words are meaningful. This is not only talking about sex, this is so much more.

It's a must read!!! I recommend this book for everyone who are looking for story with hope, love and passion.

I received a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.
