A Novella by

What would you do to get back the love of your life?

Nothing like a little breakup to remind a man why he loves a woman and what an idiot he's been. After a clunky marriage proposal, Rebecca Wilson breaks up with Jeremy Hamilton, an engineer lacking a romance chromosome. She goes away for the summer and thinks she has found true love. When she returns with a broken heart, Jeremy seizes the opportunity to convince her to give him a second chance.

But it isn't until he brings out his wild and fun side that Jeremy sees a dim flicker of hope for a future with Rebecca. His determination drives Rebecca to break into her secret cookie stash, hoping Thin Mints can make her forget Mr. Wrong. She's already been burned twice before--is she ready to take a second chance on love?

Author's Note: While THE GROOM WANTED SECONDS can easily be read as a stand-alone story, you'll likely enjoy reading the other SWEET AND SAVORY ROMANCES, too.


New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shirley Jump spends her days writing romance and women's fiction to feed her shoe addiction and avoid cleaning the toilets. She cleverly finds writing time by feeding her kids junk food, allowing them to dress in the clothes they find on the floor and encouraging the dogs to double as vacuum cleaners.

Look for her Sweet and Savory Romance series, including the USA Today bestselling book, THE BRIDE WORE CHOCOLATE, and her Sweetheart Club series for Berkley, starting with THE SWEETHEART BARGAIN.
