You have yourself a second chance romance book when your couple have been together before, but it hasn’t quite worked out. Now, for reasons *insert plot of book here* they are giving their relationship a second chance.
This is an interesting trope, the main characters already know each other, have already given their relationship a chance, but it broke down. A great second chance romance can really delve into a relationship and figure out the kinks. And to then go forward the main characters have to learn and develop in some way to finally make the relationship work.
It’s very similar to the marriage in trouble trope, in the sense that it’s two people trying to figure out what isn’t quite working, and loving each other enough to try and fix it and give it another try.
