REVIEW – The Problem with Second Chances by Piper Rayne


For Rylan Greene and me, it was simple. Love only got us so far.

I’ve known him since we were six, long before he became the professional soccer star he is now. We’ve weaved in and out of one another’s lives as rivals, teammates, friends, and lovers. Until three years ago, when my life took a hit and I ran back to my small Alaskan town, Lake Starlight, away from anything or anyone that could hurt me.

He’s never far from my mind, a constant pining ache in my heart, but I’ve convinced myself I’m better off. But now, my best friend announces her engagement and that means Rylan will return home to stand as best man to her fiancé.

He’ll be back in my orbit for three whole weeks… but I can easily keep my distance. Sure, we’ll have to walk arm in arm down the aisle together, he’ll hold me close during the bridal party dance and we’ll stand for pictures next to each other. Nothing I can’t handle.

I’m so naïve though because he’s not in town for more than twenty-four hours before he knocks on my door. I should know by now, that the two of us will never be finished business.

This second chance romance spans sixteen years of a true love match that proves these two will only ever belong to one another.

You’re my kryptonite. All my walls crumble with you.


Rylan and Calista have been teased for what feels like a million years and their story was completely worth the wait. These two were everything and their story is a rollercoaster of emotions that was truly worth it in the end.

Rylan and Calista meet as children when they played soccer together. Their lives were intertwined for years and their history together has been teased for a long time. There was always a connection between them, even as friends you could feel there was something more. Their story spans decades. There is pain, there is laugh, there is love, and there are so many emotions when it comes to these two.

There are not enough words in this world to describe how much I truly loved this story. It made me feel everything from joy to tears. Rylan and Calista were everything and so much more.

I loved returning to Lake Starlight and Sunrise Bay and getting more of the Bailey’s and the Greene’s. I can’t wait for the next book in this series and to return to Lake Starlight.

If you’re looking for a small town, second chance check this one out.
