The biggest mistake of her past is back...

Ten years ago when Shane Maguire chose the Marines as his escape from some trouble of his own making, he only regretted one thing—leaving Sinclair Smith behind. Despite his best intentions, she ended up as the one that got away. Now he’s back, determined to reclaim everything he gave up, including Sinclair.

Sinclair is immune to Shane’s charms. She’s immune to stolen kisses behind the gym. And she’s definitely immune to that maneuver he did in the back seat of his car… Okay, maybe her hormones are susceptible, but she has absolutely no desire to risk anything on the bad boy who broke all his promises.

When a little emergency lands her at his mercy, he offers her a deal she can’t refuse. And this time, she’ll show Shane what it means to be left wanting…

Shane Maguire is back in town after ten long years away. Sinclair was the one that got away, the girl he’s never gotten over, but history is seen a little differently from Sinclair’s point of view. Shane’s appearance back in her home town shoots a mix of pain, and yearning through her body. He was g ...more

A ten-year separation - due to circumstances that were truly out of their control - isn't that difficult to get over the moment a dance during a wedding reminds both Sinclair and Shane of the spark that had never died between them.

For Sinclair, apart from her memories of him, Shane isn't the bad bo ...more

I’m a fan of Samanthe Beck. She always, always writes heroes I want to fall in love with and heroines I would love to be friends with. The men and women of her Love Emergency series have been incredible with their easy going attitudes, strong wills, passion, and love. What has surp ...more

By Mindy Lou's Book Review April 13, 2017

I'll be honest here and say I'm not exactly a fan of second chance romance. If it didn't work the first time, I need a good reason as to why it will work the second time. I like this author and have enjoyed several of her books, so I wanted to give this one a chance. I admit, her reasons for this co ...more

I can always count on Samanthe Beck for a hot, sexy read that I can’t put down. No matter what the summary says, I always download everything she writes and if you are a fan of contemporary romance and haven’t read her, I highly recommend you drop everything and do it now.

Rated 4.5 Stars

Emergency Attraction is a second chance romance. It's not a suspense nor is it a mystery but there's a secret that drives a bit of the plot and I really loved how that element was woven into the story it kept me anticipating and flipping pages even though I pretty much knew what it wa ...more

Samanthe Beck is an author who first came to my attention with her McCade Brothers series, part of the Brazen line of erotic romances from Entangled Publishing.

Fun second chance romance. It's been 10 years since Sinclair & Shane have seen each other. He was her first everything and a minor misunderstanding separated them. Until Shane attends Sinclair's sister wedding.

I love a good second chance romance, but I have to admit this one pulled me in deeper than I expected and at first I wasn’t sure whether I’d like it. It’s been ten years since Shane left and it’s instantly clear that Sinclair is not over it. She has her reasons too, which is what made me wary. Shane ...more

So, I just don't know where to start with this review. Did I like this? YES! Was I confused cause it's the third book in the series? Nope (and I'll be going back to read the first two books, soon, especially Savannah and Beau's story).

This was a second chance story about Sinclair and Shane. They wer ...more

There were a few errors that needs an edit. Other than that, the book was PERFECT!! Truly flippin adorable. I started reading and realized this was part of a series.

Going home meant a second chance…

It has been awhile since I'd read anything by Samanthe Beck. I can gladly state that I'm happy I picked up Emergency Attraction and that it did not disappoint.

This was a pretty decent story overall.

Sinclair was okay. I felt that she was kind of unfair and petulant toward Shane, and it was pretty obvious what she was blaming him for after he left. Generally, the storyline was pretty straightforward but kept moving, so it was interesting enough.
