Series: The Second Chance Room
Author: Hailey North
Publisher: Hyacinth House
Publication Date: 12/06/2015
Synopsis from Goodreads: It’s a life or death challenge for Hollywood power couple Quentin Grandy and Mia Tortelli when a freak accident lands them in Purgatory’s Second Chance Room. Ruled by crusty, cigar-chomping Mr. G, this halfway house to the afterlife offers a creative few a shot at a second chance on Earth.
To return to the land of the living—and win a chance at love—Mia and Quentin must devise a plan clever enough to turn around sexy, selfish celebrity Chelsea Jordan—a prima donna diva hell-bent on destruction.

I’m going to come right out and say it. I couldn’t get into this book. Maybe it’s because I’m just busy as can be right now–I just started the new school term for college–or maybe it’s because I don’t read a lot of romance novels, but this one just didn’t hit me right.
To me the description of the book really didn’t fit. The description calls Quentin & Mia a power couple, but they aren’t actually a couple when they’re alive from what I could tell. The description calls Chelsea a diva hell-bent on destruction, but from what I could tell when I first “met” her, she didn’t really like the diva life she lead and it was all a product of how her mama raised her.
Perhaps if I’d been able to really get into the book and read further into it, I might have seen how description fit the story, but from what I was able to read, the description just didn’t fit. It’s a shame, really, because I wanted to read this book and I wanted to like it. Perhaps some time in the future I’ll revisit this book and be able to read it from start to finish and enjoy it, but unfortunately, this is apparently not that time.
I received a copy of this book free from The Killion Group in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are 100% my own.
