Guest Review: Second Wind by Aimee Nicole Walker

Second wind: a new strength or energy to continue something that is an effort. After an amicable divorce, Lincoln Huxley is ready to embrace the sexuality he repressed for more than two decades. Rush Holden is no longer willing to settle for closeted men or those who don’t share his dreams of marriage and fatherhood. A chance encounter on a lakeside pier is the second wind they both need. Or will it just be a painful reminder of all they had lost?

Second chance:
an opportunity to try something again that failed one time. Rush and Lincoln have shared a lot of firsts—friendship, young love, and heartbreak. Cruel reality forced the two men to choose paths that took their lives in different directions. Twenty-six years later, they get a second chance to fall in love with each all over again. Can it really be that simple, or will the same issues ruin their happiness a second time?

Happily ever after: to live happily for the rest of one’s life. Rush and Lincoln know that love and life can’t be defined by words alone. Patience, commitment, and the determination to do whatever it takes will be the only way the two men achieve their happily ever after.

Second Wind is a funny, sexy, and endearing standalone romance novel about love, loss, and rediscovery. It contains sexually explicit material and is intended for adults 18 and older.

Reviewer: Shee Reader

We meet Rush with his boyfriend who is no good for him. Travis is snooty and mean and Rush can do better. Rush’s childhood friend Lincoln was much more his speed but that didn’t end well.

Linc has been married to and worked with his best friend for years. Sadly that meant denying his true self, but he has almost everything he has ever wanted.

With the end of Rush’s relationship and Linc’s marriage, the stage is set for a surprise meeting of two men who haven’t seen each other for 26 years.

When they see each other, it was amazing. Like all the time had disappeared, but life has a habit of getting in the way of romance, and this is one of those romances!

I loved the to and fro, the re-aquatinting and remembering. The love between these two guys was tangible form the outset. The story told through flack backs in each MC’s POV lets the reader in on the story from the very beginning.

There are two men who are meant to be together, and we get tugged along on their journey to their happily ever after (which is so sweet my teeth hurt).

The writing is lovely, meaningful and so engaging. The dual POV gives us the front for seat in the childhood crush show and the coming around to full circle was so satisfying and heart warming. There is a terrific cast of supporting characters too.

This one is well worth a read!
