Thank you for having me and helping me celebrate the release of my second chance
romance, BACK TO THE START.
Oddly enough, second chance romance is a trope that I simultaneously steer away
from and run to. Which makes absolutely no sense, I realize that. Especially
since I just released a second chance romance this week. So, first, why do I
desperately try not to read books that fall in this category? Because I know my
heart is most likely going to be ripped to shreds and Iím going to want to kill
either the hero or heroine, maybe even both, at some point in the story. I know
Iím going to get emotionally attached to the characters, be a weepy mess when
theyíre in pain, and scream when they make the worst decisions imaginable. I
know I may lose hours of sleep binge reading, well into the night, just to
shuffle out of bed the next morning, eyes swollen and feeling like death warmed
I know all of this, yet I canít help myself. As I scroll through the hundreds of
books I have downloaded, I must accept the truth. As much as second chance
romance guts me at times, I NEED it. To make me feel alive, to remember that
love is both complicated and simple. There is a reason why two people canít move
on, why their paths keep crossing. Why a person consciously and/or
subconsciously compares everyone to THE ONE.
And that is why I run to and one-click books like this. And why I wrote one that
had me cheering for my hero, crying for my heroine and falling in love with a
couple who truly deserve a second chance at love.
I hope you enjoy Jake and Morganís story as much as I enjoyed (sometimes
loathed😊) writing it.
Dangerous Love #4
Jake McGinnis has the life he has dreamed of since
childhood: a professional football career with adoring fans,
financial security, and the unwavering support of his
family. From the outside looking in, he has everything. But
nothing could be further from the truth. Because there isnít
a day that goes by that Jake doesnít think about his first
love... and what his world would look like if she was still
by his side. When he hears that she is relocating to start a
new job less than a mile from him, the pain of their breakup
feels fresher than ever. For eight years, he has wondered
why their relationship ended and now she's settling in his
city. A city that isn't big enough for the two of them.
For Morgan Kelley,
moving to Philadelphia means living
closer to her family and practicing veterinary medicine with
two of her closest friends. Itís also her chance to start
over and move on from her failed marriage. Thereís only one
con: the close proximity to Jake McGinnis. Once upon a time
being near him was all she wanted, but now he is practically
a stranger... and it's all her fault. Faced with awful
memories and the possibility of bumping into him at her
favorite coffee shop, Morgan is haunted by the real reason
she once broke both of their hearts. Deep down, she knows
she wonít be able to embrace this new chapter of her life
without finally telling Jake the whole truth.
But how will he react when
she shares her secret? Their love
story once felt inevitable, unshakable. Is this where it
ends for good, or is it the beginning of a second chance?

Elle Keating was born and raised in South Jersey, where she lives with her
husband and three children. It was during her long commute to work, crossing
over the Betsy Ross Bridge into Pennsylvania, her mind drifted. Images of a
world with Chase, Erin and their friends came rapidly and sent her writing to
bring these intense characters to life.
When Elle is not in her favorite
coffeehouse, huddled in a corner on an oversized chair and working on the next
book in the series, she enjoys being mom, taking her children from one sport to
the next, and challenging herself frequently to be in two places at once.
