My rating: 4 stars out of 5 stars

When a storm strands Claire Hanlin in Chicago on Christmas Eve, the last person she expects to come to her rescue is Logan Dawes, the man she almost married two years ago. The chemistry between them is dangerously potent, but with nowhere else to go, Claire accepts Logan's offer to stay with him for the night.
Back in the home they shared, surrounded by reminders of Logan and his young daughter, Claire begins to realize how much she misses the family she almost had. After a few cups of Christmas cheer, she falls right back into her ex's arms - even though she knows it means setting herself up for heartbreak all over again.
The magic of the season has thrown him together with the woman he's never stopped loving, and Logan's not about to pass up this gift. He's not the workaholic he was two years ago - his family comes first. Now all he has to do is prove it to Claire, before the snow stops and flies out of his life for good.

           Season of Second Chances will be one of those books that I will always reread whenever I'm in the mood for a fluffy read. It left me feeling like all was right in the world and Logan has to be the hottest dad I ever read. There were several scenes that had me swoony-sighing all over the place for him. I'm skeptical about having kids myself, but if I can get a husband that will be great as a dad like Logan,  I'll do it. The characters are so well thought out that you feel like you know them and see their idiosyncrasies in yourself.

Claire is the sassy woman who still loves Logan and would do anything for him but holds her ground. I love that, although she wants to be with Logan, she won't stay in a relationship that does not prioritize her. She knows that she's not going to be number one in Logan life because of his daughter, Sophie, but she can't accept having his job take a bigger priority than her. Instead of being swept away by only his words, she needs for him to prove that he has changed.  In most romance novels, I typically see the woman changing her ways for a man who doesn't change himself and I love that Claire still managed to remain true to herself. With every book I read from Brighton, she creates female characters that knows what they want and who hold their ground.  

There were some sexy times that certainly left me wanting more. While it not the most steamiest I've read from Brighton, it works really well. You don't feel like it really needed or that you're missing out on anything. The plot is never slow but it doesn't feels like scenes are being rushed or that events are happening before it should, which is hard to do in a novella. 

This novella is the perfect holiday read and I'm so glad to be getting more of Brighton's words. I don't know how she does it, creating worlds in a small words count but feels like they it a full length novel. I hope everyone gives Season of Second Chances a read, you won't regret it. And if you need more reasons to read it, here's the link to Brighton's Pinterest inspiration board for Logan or as he is more commonly referred as, Hot Single Dad. You're welcome.
