Second Chance at First Love by Zoe Allison. #BlogTour

Eva Mathers is a successful woman, except for when it comes to matters of the heart. When she returns home to Yorkshire as a pending divorcee, she realises her childhood friend and first love Damon Evans is also newly single. It’s a pity he’s never noticed her romantically and had no idea that she was in love with him at school. But at least they can support each other as friends again.

Damon is attempting to adjust to life sharing the kids with his ex. His reconnection with Eva is strong, but she was always too good for him and made her indifference clear after they drifted apart during their younger years. In any case, she still seems to be hung up on her charismatic ex-husband. Eva is hiding things from Damon, secrets from her past. He wants to be there for her, so why can’t she let him in?

Eva is dealing with trauma, but she won’t confide in her loved ones. Can Damon help her break down her walls before it’s too late and they miss their second chance at first love?

My Thoughts


Second Chance at First Love is such a thought evoking, heart warming story that had me hooked from the start.

Eva is a successful woman, who has a good job which she works hard at every day. When her marriage comes to an end, she finds herself moving back Yorkshire, the place where she grew up and spent many happy years. When Eva arrives she comes face to face with Damon, her childhood friend and also the first man to capture her heart. However this love she had for him was not reciprocated, as Damon has never looked at Eva romantically.

Damon is also newly single, and is trying to adjust to life co-parenting with his ex. When he comes face to face with Eva again, their connection is as strong as it was all those years ago. Damon always thought that Eva was far too good for him, and she never really showed any signs of seeing him as anything more than a friend throughout their younger years.

Damon really wants to be there for Eva, but she is really struggling to let people in, and as she hides the secrets of her past, we have to wait and see whether their strong connection is enough to give them both another chance at happiness.

I devoured this story in one sitting. I adored Eva from the moment we first met her. Despite everything she has had to overcome, she is still an incredibly strong, caring person. Damon is equally loveable and has such a big heart. The love and devotion he has for his children makes him all the more swoon worthy!.

The storyline flowed beautifully, with plenty of drama and heart warming moments thrown in, it is hard not to lose yourself within the pages of this delightful story.

About the Author

Zoe lives in Scotland with her husband and two children. A medic by day, she started writing in her spare time as a means to counter burn out and found that this was a balm for the soul.

She is a fan of the romantic genre and its ‘happy ever after’ ethos. A sharp contrast to what she can, at times, see in her day job. Zoe is keen for the female lead in romantic fiction to disabuse stereotypes and walk on an equal footing with her male counterparts. She prefers male leads who do not display signs of toxic masculinity and believes that positive masculinity is much more attractive to women and healthier for men.
