Tess is burdened with a responsibility she’s not quite sure she can handle, and Ryan is determined to save her from it—if she ever stops pushing him away—in this sexy follow-up to Right Where You Are, the first new adult novel in the captivating Second Chances series.
Tess is a lot of things. Strong. Independent. Determined. Completely overwhelmed by the responsibilities of being her little brother’s caretaker. But she can handle it. She has to. Because there’s no way in hell she’s letting anyone else raise Noah.
Ryan’s happy with a life on cruise control. He has no intention of tying himself down. That road only leads to heartbreak, a lesson he learned the hard way when he was fifteen. So why can’t he stay away from the one woman who broke his heart?
Tess knows exactly why Ryan keeps popping up right when she needs the most help: He’s got a hero complex big enough to save Cinderella. But Tess isn’t that girl, and she refuses to let him be part of her life. Not even when Noah takes a liking to him. Not even when they kind of, maybe, hook up.
Not even when she starts to fall for him…

‘Whatever It Takes’ offers a more conventional and predictable take on the second chance romance, reuniting teenage lovers at a time when things couldn’t be more difficult for both the H/hr. For that reason, I felt that it wasn’t too much of a standout compared to its predecessor which was written around more unique circumstances and more standout characters. That being said however, L.E. Bross does nicely capture NA voices that tend to be a mix of impulsivity and growing maturity and I did like the portrayal of Tess and her struggles with Noah.
