Undeniable (Second Chances #2) by Micalea Smeltzer

I am so thankful to have authors, like Micalea, think of me when they're almost ready to publish their books and ask if I would read their work.  It's such an honor.

I have been a fan of Micalea's since she published her Outsider series.  She published Undeniable, April 1st, and of course it was amazing!  Click here for my review:  Unraveling

So...on to Undeniable.  I can say with out a shadow of a doubt Micalea's writing gets better with each book she writes.  The two characters of this book Holden and Karlie were secondary characters in Unraveling and begged for their own book.  Holden and Karlie are like two magnets being drawn to one another.  They are polar opposites but have this undeniable connection between them.  He's a MMA fighter and she's a ballerina.  He's been with many, many women and she's a virgin.

I loved seeing how these characters fought off the attraction between each other as there are many reasons they reasoned they were not meant to be together.  There's an 8 year age difference, she's his best friend's sister, he's got a harried past, she doesn't remember much of her younger years but it was bad, very bad.  It's all just excuses.  Nothing can change the attraction which builds into love.  What will they do about it?  They decide to have an affair for the summer.

Relationships often have expectations and to enter into one without them is doomed from the start. I think Micalea did an awesome job at describing how these two denied what they each truly wanted during their affair.  Major events happen in this book, and I won't spoil it for you, but let's just say life happens and it has Holden questioning if he can really love people.  Is he truly deserving of Karlie and her love.

Will he choose drugs and booze like his daddy?  Will he man up and go after the girl?  If he does, will she even choose Holden, or has she moved on?
