Always wanting to be a writer, but not having much experience with men or romance, Aubrey sets out to find her inspiration with the help of her best friend. Just when she thinks all hope is lost, she meets Alex Logan. He’s beyond handsome, well dressed, and is known to be a player—perfect for the role.
The unexpected happens and Alex becomes more than just an inspiration to Aubrey, but a misunderstanding leaves her heartbroken. Before an opportunity arises to straighten things out, tragedy strikes, and Aubrey’s world is turned upside down.
While Aubrey is trying to cope with her new life, a new chance at love arises. Can she find it in her to trust again? Will Alex be able to win her back? Or will she take this new unexpected chance at love?
Let’s start with the title. I like it – Unexpected Chance. It provokes thought and had me thinking something good is in store for the Hero and or Heroine in this book.. I was eager to find out!! So I started my reading journey. Sometimes in life…Unexpected Chances …bring delightful things… And sometimes they don’t….
Aubrey is twenty five and reevaluating her life. Her parents went from middle class to upperclass and left for France to enjoy the lifestyle of the rich and famous. She is single and lonely and deciding what she wants out of life. She’s decided she wants to write a romance novel. However, there’s a problem she hasn’t got much experience with men. But.. Her solution was clear. RESEARCH!
Her BFF invites her to the club White Orchid where she partook in a good opportunity. Then….!
“I felt something in me when he looked at me, a feeling I’d never felt before.”
Alex Logan is a dashing wealthy club owner. He’s tall with a delicious five o’clock shadow. He’s hot, hunky and desirable. But there’s one problem he’s a total player..
Oh, dear! This could get ugly or interesting!!!???!!!
Is he really a player? Kinda… But why!? Well as the story unfolds you will find he’s masking his pain and filling the lonely void.
Until someone catches his attention. But could he be the real thing or will jealousy and untruths get in their way?!! My interest perked up as I absorbed the pages. My gut was telling me a curve ball was ahead.
He thinks she’s different. He may discover her intentions are like the others. With Aubrey researching for her book he may soon discover that she has a hidden agenda… Hmmm my gut was twisting again.
But maybe it’s just Aubrey trying to protect her heart calling her time with him research when really her heart is blooming with feelings. Time will tell…
I was definitely invested in this relationship. My head was screaming tell him what your doing how your feeling.. But again she doesn’t have a lot if experience.
My heart was melting over Alex’s attentive and seductive ways in this story. He’s passionate and patient which is always a plus in the bedroom under or over the sheets!
“Thank you for letting me be the be to touch you. Make love to you. Be with you.”
He started out as a player but as the story unfolded its clear his lifestyle suited him. He lost a lot and was kind of lonely. My heart broke that he’s still haunted by the loss of his mom, sister and distant Father.
He’s also supporting a cause near and dear to him Fundraising for Drunk Driving Education. The message is conveyed in a subtle and tender way in this novel. Alex seems like a deep guy that cares..
“Approximately 10,000 people died last year alone. Thirty one percent of car accidents are related to drunk driving.”
I’m falling for him. Oh, yeah I’m already married..oh shucks..he doesn’t really exist either DARN. Not to mention, he has his eyes set on Aubrey. He’s completely smitten with her too.
Is an Unexpected Chance in store for her? Well things get complicated and feelings get hurt and I’m like OMG..
“It’s something so new to me, I’m so afraid. I don’t want to lose this.”
This is a beautiful love story that’s satisfying and touching. We’ve all been in relationships…reading about the origination of the one between Alex and Aubrey was refreshing. It flowed. It was organic. It had lots of heart and some steamy sex. And a bit if a hiccup! Only time will tell what the future holds for Alex and Aubrey. This book has a cliffhanger.. I’m looking forward to the continuation.
