Just so you know, I didn’t realize this was the second book in a series. I usually pay attention to this kind of information, but this time it wasn’t mentioned on the cover. Although it was stated in the book’s description, I overlooked it. Don’t worry, that didn’t stop me from enjoying the story. There were moments when I got confused, but I take full ownership of that. Trust me, read the stories in order for maximum enjoyment.

“Second Chance” by Kyona Jiles is a gripping new adult paranormal romance with supernatural creatures and a love triangle. If you love spice in your romance, this is the fade to black kind of book.

What I Loved

I loved the interactions among the side characters and I think this was one of the book’s strongest points. Their relationships and personalities added depth and vibrancy to the story, making the supernatural world feel more grounded and relatable. Each character brought something unique to the table, enhancing the overall reading experience.

The story’s love triangle was both gripping and masterfully executed. The main love interest was particularly well-developed, and the romantic tension added an extra layer of excitement. This part had me hooked, dying to see how things would play out.

The supernatural world is easy to grasp and doesn’t need much world-building. The book is simple enough for new readers to enjoy and has enough detail to keep paranormal fans satisfied.

The author’s writing style is engaging and fluid, making for an enjoyable read. The development of the main relationship arc was both satisfying and realistic, with enough emotional depth to keep readers invested.

What Didn’t Resonate With Me

As I mentioned earlier, jumping into this book without reading the first in the series led to some confusion. While this is largely a reader error, it’s worth noting for potential readers. To fully appreciate the nuances and background, starting with the first book is essential.

There were these visions that got me curious, but they ended up being a dead end. That was both confusing and disappointing. I can’t say more without giving spoilers.


“Second Chance” by Kyona Jiles is a great addition to the new adult paranormal romance genre. Its engaging characters, romantic tension, and romance make it a worthwhile read, especially for those who appreciate a well-crafted love triangle. However, to avoid confusion and fully enjoy the story, I highly recommend starting with the first book in the series.


If you’re a fan of paranormal romances with rich character interactions and a touch of drama, “Second Chance” is definitely worth adding to your reading list. Just be sure to pick up the series from the beginning for the best experience.
