I loved her.
I lost her.
But I’m not willing to let her go.

This time, I’m playing for keeps.

About the Author

New York Times & USA Today Bestselling Author Chantal Fernando is twenty six years old and lives in Western Australia.

When not reading, writing or daydreaming she can be found enjoying life with her three sons and family.


This Time Around is about how if you fight for what you really want and need, you'll have it. 
We've met Ryan Knox in Maybe This Time. He's the flirtatious, man-whore twin brother of Reid Knox. The two can't be more opposites, yet they somehow are the same. They both fight and don't give up until they get what they want. In both cases, it was a woman. For Reid, Summer, whereas for Ryan it's his wife, Taiya. So you see, Ryan's situation is a little bit different because he had Taiya but lost her because of a misunderstanding. 
I was skeptical at first. I didn't think he'd come around. I mean, the way he was going through women in Maybe This Time? Yeah, hard to see how a guy who's a major playboy can truly be loyal.
Well, I'm happy to say he proved me wrong. He even grew on me. Not that I didn't like him in Maybe This Time. I did. But from the epilogue we got from MTT, I was sure he'd somehow mess up or do something to annoy me. Well, he didn't. 
He's pretty wow :)
Taiya is a strong female lead, she takes crap from no one, that's for sure and I like that even though she was scared of giving her marriage another shot, she did just that. I also like her idea of 'punishing' Ryan whenever one of his conquests reminded her he hadn't been a saint while she had been away. She's perfect for Ryan. I like how things work out. I like that it's not full of drama, it's not drawn-out and they don't end up fighting and making up 90% of the book. Because it's not just about them. It's also about other characters. We get to meet new ones but I'm not saying who. You'll have to read to see for yourself.

All in all, I give this book four stars. It wasn't long, it wasn't too short. It was the perfect length and, as I already mentioned, drama-free with hot guys and funny female characters.
