#BookReview: Tug: A Love and Second Chances Novel by Katherine Glick

Reviewer: Annie

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.


When Alex Plummer suddenly became a widow and a single mother at the young age of thirty, she swore she’d never love another man again. The pain from losing her husband had broken her heart beyond repair. But she carried on, and remained strong for her son. With time, she learned how to live a functional life again. She had everything she needed. A loving son, a promising career, and a best friend that put others to shame. And there was no room for anything or anyone else in her life. Period. Alex’s controlled lifestyle was contested when she met Nicky, her best friend’s cousin. They quickly realized their attraction to one another was different and beyond control. Like Alex, Nicky suffered a loss when his fiancé dumped him after his hockey career ended. He vowed to be alone, so he could heal from the pain of his break up. He wasn’t going to let another woman wreck his life again. When Alex and Nicky’s lives collided, they realized they had one thing in common…heartache. However, they were too stubborn to admit that they wanted and needed each other. Alex wasn’t looking to fill a void, so she closed her heart off. And Nicky didn’t want to trust another woman, so the idea of a relationship wasn’t even on his radar. They were determined to keep a safe distance from one another. But Fate had other ideas in mind for Alex and Nicky. No matter how hard they tried, they couldn’t go their separate ways. Can Alex and Nicky overcome their hurtful pasts, and accept love into their hearts again? Or will they continue to build walls to keep each other out? This is a sweet story about love and second chances.


Katherine Glick proves that she deserves a spot on our “To-Be-Read” Lists…and, in our Beach Bag’s this summer. I just love when I read an author’s first novel, and I am totally blown away. I am anxiously awaiting her next novels.

Alex Plummer has a wonderfully cozy life in Wilmington, NC with her husband, Aaron and son, Dylan. They have a dog, Brutus and a lovely home. Alex and Aaron met in college, married, had a son and were leading the life most people dream of.

Until the day Sheriff Williams and his partner knocked on her door to tell her that Aaron died in a car accident.

Then life was not so dreamy.  When your heart breaks wide open as Alex’s did on the day that Aaron died, things cannot ever be the same. Life will never be as cozy. Life cannot ever be so full of love….

Or, can it?

Can love enter your life twice? Can you truly be given a second chance?

And, if offered the second chance, would Alex even take it?

This is an engrossing story that will “tug” at your heartstrings.
