For as long as he could remember, Sebastian had been cursed. It began with the tragic death of his parents when he inherited the modern art gallery. It continued every day when he looked in the mirror and saw a monster where a man should be. He’d tried everything without success. Then he happened upon her, his cure, the one who could give him a second chance at life, love and happiness. After years of repairing what her father destroyed during his drunken rampages, opening a shop for repurposed and redesigned furniture seemed a natural progression for Marisa. When Sebastian hired her, she finally had a chance to get paid to do what she’d done for years for free. It seemed like a win, until he proposed. The moment they met, Sebastian was drawn to her. Of course, losing everything in thirty days if he didn’t marry was a huge incentive. So he asked and she refused. An experienced negotiator, he never gave up when he had his heart set on something. For Marisa, marriage wasn’t on the table and love wasn’t negotiable. Still, always quick to see the best in others, she looked at him and saw a project, her ultimate redesign. Maybe even Sebastian deserved a second chance.

Marissa lost her mother at a young age and her father is an angry drunk who destroys things when he’s in one of his moods. Marissa has always cleaned up after him and doesn’t exactly stand up for herself. Both Sebastian and Marissa must overcome their past to have any sort of happy future. Together they are able to do just that but it takes a lot of trust.
There were hints of Beauty and the Beast and Cinderella throughout this book. I thought it was a perfect way to do a modern sort of retelling of these stories. Second Chances is full of hope and love. I highly recommend reading it.
