Just Ten Seconds
That’s all it took for my life to change forever.
I left my posh life in Manhattan and escaped to the Hudson Valley in hopes of a fresh start. It wasn’t until I happened upon a bereavement group when I finally found a place I felt understood. I told them my husband was dead when, really, I was the one who had died inside. It was also where I saw the smoldering gaze of Dean Delgado, the single father whom I’d helped just days before.

Just Ten Seconds
That’s all he wishes he had with his late wife.
Despite Dean’s widowed status, he has a robust thirst for life. He’s a protector and a giver. A man who fixes things with his hands, is devoted to his child, and wants to spend his days with me. I try to avoid him, knowing a woman with my past has no business being in this man’s life. With every run-in, he makes me laugh. With every touch, he ignites me. And with every second, he makes me feel like myself again.

Just Ten Seconds
That’s all it took for me to fall in love with Dean Delgado.
I’m in too deep and my secrets are about to be exposed. I only hope he can forgive me for the lies I never meant to tell.

This is a second-chance-at-love romantic standalone




And here we go again. Another book devoured…
It’s always amazing to have new books to read. It’s amazing to feel that rush. The rush of a new story, new characters, new plots. It’s intense and amazing at the same time.
Jeannine Colette has been on my heart for a while now. Her books cemented that love and when I got the chance to meet her in person… Oh boy… That day was amazing and I have a picture to prove it. Lol
Her writing goes is hot, wild, sexy and intense. Just give her a chance and you’ll see for yourself.
Just Ten Seconds is her latest release and explores the lives of Dean and Mara.
Dean had had his fair share of sadness, of grief, of loneliness. No one deserves to suffer like that but that can’t define you. He has a kid to take care of.
Mara is used to having all the luxury that money can provide. With this, you would think that she was happy, but you’re wrong. Money only brings up the worse in people. People that should help and protect are the ones that will steal and hurt you the most. So she had only one option. To move away from that life and settle in a new city and built her fresh start.
What she wasn’t counting were her neighbors…
Oh, meu Deus… Yep… I needed to say that in Portuguese… That means “Oh my God”. This book was everything and more.
Perfect plot, very well written, super engaging and intense.
Each chapter was even more perfect than the latest and I loved every word from it.
It was spectacular to witness their growth. It was hard to witness their struggles and the battles they were fighting against, but it was even better to see how the overcame every single one.
These two shared great chemistry and it was surreal to see their connection growing.
There were parts of the story that I wanted to scream so loud and then there were others that I saw myself crying because their pain was so real that I couldn’t stay indifferent.
This book will give us love, loyalty, desire, kindness but it also gave us betrayal, crime, deceive, madness and envy.
It was the perfect book to take my mind off and I know, without a doubt that you guys will love it.
I must say that I have a special love for this book because Jeannine made her male character Portuguese and it was amazing to see my language there.
Jeannine Colette you rock woman. This book was so freaking amazing and I didn’t want it to end.
And I need to ask… What’s next?
And now, a little treat to you…
A cada livro teu, cada palavra tua tem a capacidade de me fazer sonhar, sentir e isso é algo inexplicável.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
