Tia McCollors has emerged as an inspirational speaker and author of faith-based novels, including Zora’s Cry, The Truth About Love, and a Heart of Devotion. She lives in the Atlanta, Georgia, area with her husband and children.
Now, she writes a book asking one question: Can there ever be a second chance at love and marriage? Lynette and Ace Bowers were once married to their careers and now Ace has a girlfriend of two years who is intent on keeping her man, but it seems Ace has never stopped loving his ex wife Lynette. There is a recipe for disaster brewing…but for whom?
Lynette Bowers has a successful dentist practice and she has settled in nicely with being a mom to two teenage daughters in the last four years. She has not met anyone, but lately it seems that God and a few good friends and family are urging her to be honest about her feelings for Ace. She still loves him.
However, Ace has Sheila. A high maintenance, beautiful woman eight years younger than him. Although she and Ace has never moved in together, she is determined to have Ace place a ring on her finger- no matter what it takes. With the help of her controlling, manipulative friend Cassandra, Sheila will enact her own plan to keep Ace to herself.
The most memorable character out of the whole book is Ace. He is a reflection us. He is a strong believer in the Lord and consults Him in all things. He is a compassionate man but not to the point of being a pushover. He also makes a huge mistake but does not make light of it and tells the truth no matter what. He is admirable because he keeps it real. A man without God in his life would probably look at having two women as a dream- but Ace is Godly and he does not wish to hurt anyone’s heart.
What the devil means for bad, God works it out for the good.
This book earns five stars for great characters, page turning quality, and just overall good fiction for the soul and entertainment.
