~Review: Unforeseen Heartbeat (Second Chances #2) by Maureen Mayer~

Used… Broken… Confused…

It only took one drunken mistake four years ago for Maddie Harrington to learn that when you fully give yourself over to a man, you should never expect anything in return. Since that night, her views on love have become distorted, believing men would only want her for the pleasure her body could bring them. She in turn finds herself hooking up with random guys, but never keeps them around long enough to see if there could possibly be something more.

That is…until Hunter Bryant enters the picture.

When the handsome pre-med student shows up in the right place at the right time, captivating her with his stormy gaze, she immediately pushes him away, thinking he’s no different than any other guy. The deeper Hunter delves into her life, trying to break through her iron-clad walls, the more she begins to question whether she is truly capable of opening her heart up to another man. 

Maddie soon finds herself forced to make a difficult decision, one that will forever change both of their lives. Will she shut Hunter out of her life for good or will she finally open up her heart and allow herself the life she never dreamed she deserved?

**Please note: Unforeseen Heartbeat can be read as a standalone, however it is highly recommended that you read book one in the series, Relinquishing Liberty.**

Overall Rating:  5 Rockin’ ★★★★

Maddie’s life had changed from the day she gave her virginity at sixteen to her first real crush.  The experience was not all everyone had built it up to be and not only that she ended up pregnant.  She made the decision to have an abortion and never told the guy responsible, she swore that she would use men the same way they used women.  Years later her life has become one of commitment phobia and one night stands However one night at a frat party her easy going attitude got her drugged and almost raped.  The only thing that saved her was the intervention of a friend and the help of and an unbelievable man.  His quick thinking and medical assistance saved her life.

Hunter is every woman’s dream man.  Handsome, sexy, protective and caring are just a few words to describe the incredible Dr. G. I. Joe.  Hunter is currently in ROTC and enrolled as a pre-med student at the same school that Maddie attends.  He wants to get to know the feisty woman that has captured his heart.  Will the attempted rape and attacks on Maddie keep him from getting the girl of his dream?  He knows that he must go slow and take each step forward slowly, but she is worth it.  Can Hunter be the man that Maddie needs?  Will he keep her heart safe?
