Harold Wainwright is dying. At seventy-nine, stricken with cancer, the billionaire insurance mogul has much to regret. In his youth he rejected his only true love, Jacob, because the young artist was distracting him from the pursuit of wealth and success. Now Harold is alone, rich beyond his wildest dreams … and his life is over. Doctor Timothy Drayton has found a way to prolong human life. He has created a computer chip that can be implanted into the human brain, allowing consciousness to be transferred from a dying patient into the mind of a donor subject. Jesse Warren is eighteen years old. He's a track star, model student, and the typical all-American kid. Then tragedy strikes. After a terrible accident, Jesse is pronounced brain dead. His devastated family is ecstatic when Dr. Drayton offers a "new treatment" for brain injury. Convinced that God has sent a miracle, the Warrens are overjoyed when their son wakes from his coma. They hope and pray the amnesia is not permanent. But the real Jesse is gone, his consciousness replaced by Harold Wainwright's. Will Harold make the same mistakes this time around? Or will he take advantage of this rare second chance to find the love that was missing from his former life?
Praise for Second Chances
“Leave it to Jeff Erno to get me so invested in his characters, I can not put the book down... I absolutely loved Phillip. What a sweet, gentle soul. The intimate moments between Phillip and Jesse were so well written - believable, sexy, tender. But this book is so much more than a great romance. It's good sci-fi, too, and will leave you with considerable food for thought.” MORE...Madison Parker, Author of Play Me, I'm Yours
“I cried, I smiled, I put the book down, having stayed up too late (again) to reach the very satisfying conclusion... The bottom line is this: Jeff Erno gave me complex characters that I truly cared about, and a highly interesting story that kept me turning the pages.” MORE...Eden Winters, Author of Diversion
“Delightful read. Hot guys, fun, heart-warming, adventure, suspense, young love, old love - what more could a reader ask for.” Michael Murphy, Author of Breaking News
“Erno gives us a wonderful science fiction novel that brings us to question ourselves as we read—would we live our lives in the same way if we were given a chance to start over? Is it possible to better oneself when he knows of the mistakes that he has made, and would he make them again or would there be new ones? Erno also hit on what I think may be one of the largest fears that most of us share— when our time has come, how will we reflect on the life we led?” MORE...Amos Lassen, Reviews by Amos Lassen
