From USA Today Bestselling Author Terri E. Laine comes an all new STANDALONE second chance romance…
One night … one kiss … one touch … will change everything.
Chance Abbot is cocky.
A player in every sense of the word.
He broke my heart once, and I swore he’d never get a second chance.
But when he smiles at me, flashing those irresistible dimples or looks at me like I’m the best thing he’s ever seen, I forget I shouldn’t fall for his charms again.
Brie Holloway is beautiful.
She’s everything I’ve ever wanted and everything I don’t deserve.
But that won’t keep me from trying to win her back.
So when she starts dating her TA, I promise to keep her secret on one condition: for every time she goes out with him, she has to go out with me. I’m prepared to prove I’m right for her, one date at a time.
He’s lighting a fire in my heart and breaking down my walls, and proving he’s worthy of a second chance.
She’s everything that’s good in my world, and if she wants me to chase her I will because she’s got me catching fireflies…

Well Terri E Laine did it again!!! I loved this book almost as much as the first book. I devoured this book and had a really hard time putting it down. Terri has a forever fan in this reader 🙂
Catching Fireflies is the next standalone novel in her interconnected standalone books in the Chasing Butterflies Series. This book was just as emotional as the first book. I was a little nervous going into this book because after reading the blurb I was afraid this was going to be a love triangle, and I really don’t like those. I will warn you…..yes she does touch on a love triangle, but not in the normal sense. I really can’t say too much because that would be a spoiler to that storyline, but just know if you aren’t a fan of triangles, don’t let that stop you from reading this fabulous book.
Terri does again tackle some tough subjects in this book, such as alcoholism and abandonment. But just like in the first book, I thought Terri handle these topics with tact and grace. I thought the writing of this book was fantastic. Terri knows just how to give us enough information in her stories without making us feel we are missing something, but not an over abundance to slow the story down. Her flow and pacing are always spot on!!!
Catching Fireflies is a second chance love story between Chance and Brie. In the start of the book these characters are just starting out as freshman in college. When they meet at a bonfire after a football game, they hit it off right away. Coming from different financial backgrounds, they found each other a refreshing change of pace. But Chance has some fears of commitment because of a betrayal in high school with his long time girlfriend. This in turns makes Chance make some dumb decisions and Chance and Brie lose contact. Fast Forward 2 years and they are reconnected, but Brie is seeing someone. Will Chance and Brie ever get on the same page?? Will Brie every be able to forgive Chance for walking away 2 years ago and give him another chance?? Follow them on their journey in Catching Fireflies to get those answers.
We do see Kelley and Lenny (Lenora) from the first book in this story, but this isn’t a sequel to that book. This story actually runs parallel to that book. So I don’t feel Chasing Butterflies needs to be read first, but these are both such amazing books, you really will want to read both of them!!!
So as you can tell I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of a New Adult College based story that is a second chance love story. I never feel like my reviews do the book justice. Honestly it is probably just better for you to read the book and experience the characters and emotions for yourself. You won’t be sorry!!!!
