Author: C. Kaye
Genre: Contemporary Romance
A Second Chance at Love…
Raef Alvero has been groomed his entire life to take over as CEO of Alvero & Alvero. He’s also spent his entire life trying to please his father…Even if that meant giving up the one woman he ever truly loved. Now fate has intervened. Raef is faced with handling the buyout and closing down of a chain of hair salons…one in which Gemma works. Five years has passed since Raef decided to leave Gemma, but everything comes rushing back when he walks into the salon. All the pain, all the memories…all the love. And he knows he won’t let her go again. Not ever, no matter what else he has to give up.
Can be a dangerous thing.
Gemma Warren knew the salon franchise had been sold …but she never expected the new owner to show up at the shop –and she really never expected he would be the same 6 feet of seduction who left her heartbroken and pregnant 5 years ago. But what she’s feeling –aside from total shock – isn’t hatred. The feelings of love Raef left her with have just been buried deep in her heart ,and now that he’s back, keeping them secret from him will be as impossible as keeping their daughter a secret. With pictures of little Charlotte displayed all over the salon, Raef would know immediately he had a child. Then what…? Could he ever forgive Gemma for hiding her?
A second chance is all they need, some time to forgive, but there’s a sinister plan already set in motion—one that will threaten not only Raef and Gemma’s happiness, but the life of their little girl.
Lita T’s Review: 4.5 STARS
This Time Around by C. Kaye is a cute tale about Gemma, a young lady who took an incident that would have devastated other young ladies but she held her own. She now has a salon with a friend and they love what they do. When they get the news the salon has been bought by a large beauty corporation she and her co-owner are worried what is in store for their little salon. When Rafe the owner of the corporation goes to visit the salon he discovers that the girl he broke up with has been keeping a secret from him. When he looks into Gemma’s work station he sees a picture of a little girl who looks just like his sister did when she was little. He realizes he has a daughter he never knew existed and that Gemma kept that secret. This is a story of a second chance for two people who never stopped loving each other. This was not your ordinary boy finds out about baby story. There are a few twist and turns which turned this story into much more. I voluntarily read an Advanced Reader Copy of this story. I truly enjoyed this story and give it 4.5 stars.

Growing up in rural Louisiana, I dreamed of one day being a writer. Although it took many years to achieve that dream, life has been fulfilling along the way. Being a wife and a mother are the things I consider my biggest accomplishments. My family is number one in my eyes.
By day, I work in a public school finance. At night and on weekends, I become a writer. Outside of work and writing, I enjoy reading, photography and traveling. I am obsessed with all things Disney and Thirty Seconds to Mars. In addition to my husband and son, my three favorite men are Mickey Mouse, Jared Leto and Shannon Leto.
I can’t forget to mention my two babies, Beaux–our half Yorkie, half Labrador doggie–and Kat–who is actually a cat. They complete our little family and have helped with our empty-nest since our children have become adults. They are very spoiled and have a hard time understanding why they can’t be in my lap when I am writing.
