Inhaltsangabe zu „A Second Chance at Love (Time Travel and Second Chance)“ von Kassandra Lynn

True love doesn’t exist. Forever belongs in a storybook. Empress Ursila Ufran ran away with Royal Healer Draven for love. What she found was regret and heartbreak. Draven had approached her with an agenda, her father had committed treason, and everyone in House of Ufran had been beheaded. When a magical amulet gives her a second chance at life, she has to avoid her mistakes and prevent her family’s downfall before it’s too late.

The warming up phase took longer than it was the case in book 1, but the moment I’ve been through it, I couldn’t stop reading.

    I received an ARC and chose voluntarily to review.A second chance at love? To think about needing one at all is sad but filled with hope at the same time. Well, not so much for Ursila. Right after being betrayed by the, so she’s thought at least, love of her life, Draven, the man she has given up being the empress of Viscent Empire for, and dying by being run over by a horse just after realizing that the emperor has her entire family beheaded for numerous crimes against the Empire, Ursila wakes up a year earlier, freshly married to the same ice-cold emperor Ezra. Disillusioned by love, she has set herself a new goal: safe her family from their deadly fate.I remember having a very close connection to the leading character, Elaina, in the first book of the series (by the way, you don’t have to have read it because the books just share the same concept and setting, but the pairing you follow is different). It made for a very intense reading experience. This time it took a little longer for that to happen. Perhaps it was because Ursila hasn’t been threatened nearly as much by her enemies? Or because we‘re not confronted with Draven and Serene right from the start like it had been the case with Sonia? Important is that it did happen eventually, although I can’t quite pinpoint when. I can only guess it started when she got closer to Ezra and obstacles began to be thrown into their path to happiness together, especially when it became clearer that she weren’t only getting closer to him for her family’s sake anymore.I loved how they slowly got to know each other better, how they got over prejudices and misunderstandings. It makes it even more exciting that you know quite a bit more about their feelings towards the other than they do by practically being in Ursila’s head (first person point of view) and by reading between the lines, by observing Ezra’s behaviour. I’ve been yelling at them from the sidelines a lot because of that, very telling of how invested I’ve been.Besides all the love drama, there are the mysteries to be solved of how and why Ursila has been betrayed and her family killed. It’s all connected somehow, fun to speculate about and full of surprises, just the way I like it.Now I’m excited about what „A Second Chance at Happiness“ will have in store for us, if I can’t put it down as well, if I fall in love with the characters again. Well, I’m pretty sure I will and I can’t wait for it to happen.
