Review: One More Chance by Samantha Chase (Band on the Run #4)

It's been about three years since my last Samantha Chase read, but I'm one of those readers who isn't a fan of jumping into an ongoing series, so I've been holding off on reacquainting myself with her reading. Then I heard that she was going to release a new book in her Band on the Run series--formerly known as Shaughnessy Brothers: Band on the Run and a series wherein I'd already read the first three books a few years back AND the original series it was a spin-off of, The Shaughnessy Brothers, all of which were previously published by Sourcebooks Casablanca--and I just knew this was the perfect time to jump back in.
One More Chance is the fourth novel in Samantha Chase's Band on the Run series, and it's a second-chance romance featuring Shaughnessy's longtime manager and agent, forty-three-year-old Michael "Mick" Tyler, and the girl he left behind in order for her to achieve her own dreams. Twenty-three years after he last saw Sienna Ashley, he's stunned when he sees her once again. The sixteen-year-old back then is now a neuropsychologist--one just about to start a much-needed two-week vacation upon the insistence of her dearest friend. Deciding to spend the next couple of weeks together reconnecting is one thing, but Mick wonders if that will be enough time to convince Sienna that he wants everything with her beyond that time?
Ah, it was fun to touch base with both Shaughnessy (the band) and the Shaughnessys (the family) through this new book, AND get a really well-written romance with older main characters (something I rarely say no to!). I liked the ease between Mick and Sienna. There wasn't any sort of bitterness with as far as how everything was when they were younger. It was clear that they had lives to live and milestones to meet, albeit while apart, and now that fate has brought them back together, it was a matter of figuring out whether or not they were now prepared to go into being a couple for keeps. Yes, there are moments wherein they lacked open and honest communication, but that isn't something that's exclusive to those below the age of forty, and the resolution was more than satisfactory. All in all, One More Chance was a 4.5-starred read.
