⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Second Chance Stars
He’s a troubled young actor, Hollywood’s newest heartthrob, struggling with fame as the star of the latest superhero franchise. Through scandal after scandal, addiction on top of addiction, a flurry of paparazzi hunt him as he fights to conquer his demons.
She’s a single mother, assistant manager at a grocery store, existing in monotony with her five-year-old daughter. Every day when she goes to work, lurid tabloids surround her, the face of a notorious bad boy haunting her from their covers.
A man and a woman, living vastly different lives, but that wasn’t always the case. Once, they were just a boy and a girl who bonded over comic books and fell in love unexpectedly.
When Kennedy Garfield met Jonathan Cunningham back in high school, she knew he had all the makings of a tragic hero. With stars in his eyes, and her heart on her sleeve, the pair ran away together to follow their dreams.
But dreams, sometimes, turn into nightmares.
Now, years later, the only thing they share is a daughter—one who has no idea her father plays her favorite superhero. But Jonathan is desperate to make amends, and at the top of his list is the woman who gave up everything for him and the little girl he hasn’t yet met.
Oh my goodness I LOVED this story!
I just love a second chance love story, and this one has it all in spades.
Single mother Kennedy works as an assistant manager in a grocery store, her and Jonathan Cunningham were High School sweethearts.
Jonathan was an aspiring actor and tried his best to go to auditions and break into the industry, unfortunately it didn’t go so well for him, until Kennedy steps in to help.
She manages to get him an audition with a big director/producer after an accidental coffee spill in a cafe, and after that…….enter Jonny Cunning!
Only after that, Jonny AKA Jonathan becomes a bit of a douche and starts drinking and taking drugs, this obviously doesn’t go down too well in the home that him and Kennedy have created, and she puts up with it as long as she can, but it eventually becomes too much for her, and she leaves him, even though she is pregnant!
Kennedy goes back home to live with her dad, and Jonathan? Well Jonny becomes the next big thing, starring in a Super Hero franchise (think Batman/Spiderman big)
Kennedy sees him in all of the fancy magazines living it up and flaunting his new girlfriend, and EVERYONE loves him!
She manages to block most of it out, until they come to film his new movie in her home town, thats when the brown stuff hits the fan!
Jonny obviously knows he has a kid, but apart from sending a cheque every month, has never had anything to do with it, when i say it, i mean her, his daughter Maddie, who is ADORABLE.
The thing is, Maddie doesn’t know who her dad is, and who is her favourite super hero of all time……yep you guessed it ……
🎧🎧Narrated by the always awesome, sexy voiced #AndCock Joe Arden and the brilliant Maxine Mitchell, this book would have been a one click for me just because of the narrators, but the story was brought to life by these 2 perfect story tellers, i am awed (and a little bit in love) with both of them 😍😍
