About the Book
Jill Griffin & Ben Fein are meant to be together… said no one ever!
Jill has built a successful career writing romantic ballads for many of today’s top performers. Since the tragic end of her marriage a couple years back, the 40-something single mom has all but abandoned hope for a love story of her own.
Ben is a brash, young boy-band singer seeking a solo career who hires Jill to write for him. He’s got a dark secret from his past that he wants to keep hidden.
The attraction between the two is red-hot and when Ben falls hard for Jill, he doesn’t care who knows it. Jill’s been burned before and wants to take things slow, keeping their relationship out of the glare of the media. After a gossip columnist exposes their affair, she’s forced to decide if she can risk letting go of her past in order to build a life with Ben.
When Ben’s past makes headlines, Jill begins to wonder how well she really knows him. But as Ben climbs to the top of the pop charts, he’s determined to succeed… at convincing Jill to take a second chance on love.
Second Guessing is the love story of Jill and Ben, who are so wrong for each other that they may actually be right!
I really enjoy Guessing At Normal from Gail Ward Olmsted, so I was looking forward to reading the sequel. I have to say that I was impressed! It was great catching back up with Jill, Ben, Carly and the other characters, and seeing how life has been for them. Jill’s life in general is super interesting – a rock and roll widow, dating an ex-boy band singer going solo. The book is a lot more than just a romance though, and there are several deep topics touched on throughout. I would recommend you read the first book before starting this one, to get a better idea of the cast of characters (and because it’s a good one!) but I would recommend both of these. I read this fairly quickly over the weekend, and also really enjoyed the little snippets at the end, and it had me hoping for a third in the series!
