Second Chances

Second Chances by lislar
Rating: M
Summary:
Renee is constantly on the move, dragging fifteen year old Bella around with her from one dump to another. Her life takes a turn for the worst. Bella is sent to Forks. Charlie, with the help of an alluring doctor tries to help Bella deal with her past.



I mentioned last time that I'm on this kick with older Edward/younger Bella and this was another foray into that realm. Unfortunately, this was not one of my better choices. I know it's been a while since I've given a negative review, however, with this one it can not be helped.

When I started this story, I thought it had potential. Renee dies of a drug over dose and Bella moves to Forks to live with her estranged father whom she never knew.  Fearing Bella's emotional state after Renee's death, Charlie enrols her in a support group at the local hospital. Edward is the psychiatrist who runs the group.

Apparently, some readers had an issue with Bella being 15 at the beginning of the story and Edward being 25. I'm not sure exactly where those concerns came from considering that all that occurred were some looks. Be that as it may, my biggest issue with this story was pacing. The story got too bogged down in the details of Bella's traumatic life for me.

After reading the first 10 chapters and being completely frustrated with the lack of movement, I decided to skip to the last chapter the author had posted to see if it was worth trying to plow through. Thirty three chapters and I still was not happy with where the story was.

Needless to say, I gave up after that. I give this story 1 out of 5 stars.
