Take a Chance on Me
by Jaqueline Snowe

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Contemporary Sports Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Kate Zell and Brody Carlson have been best friends since elementary school. Their relationship had always been easy. Both of them loyal to a fault, they had been there for each other through everything: heartbreaks, hangovers, and tragedy. So when Kate needs a place to stay for three months, Brody doesn’t think twice about agreeing. After all, they had known each other forever. Would could go wrong living with his closest and oldest friend?

Apparently, everything. Three months in a small apartment becomes more than complicated. Brody shouldn’t be attracted to his dorky best friend…he most definitely shouldn’t. That would be absurd. She’s a relationship girl and he’s more a one-night-sans-clothes kind of guy.

One drunken dare of strip poker changes everything. Suddenly, two people with too much to lose play a dangerous game. The unapologetic playboy and the girl-next-door have a choice to make, if only their pasts didn’t keep getting in the way of their future.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EXCERPT TWO:


“I have to bat. Don’t punish me too much, please?” She puppy-dog eyed me before jogging off. She hit a solid single to right field and jumped up and down, so excited that she slipped off the bag.

“You good?” I shouted, not even trying to hide my laughter.

“Emotionally bruised. That’s all.” She brushed the dirt off her ass and ran like a fool when the next person hit a triple. She jogged up to me, out of breath with her hands on her knees. “Lay it on me. What do I have to do?”

“Go on a date with me. Don’t overthink it.”

“Wait, that’s it?” She looked up at me with a furrowed brow. “A date?”

“Yes.”

“You? On a date? With me?”

“Yes, that is typically how it works, right? Or is that not what people do anymore?”

“But…Brody.” She shook her head and kicked the dirt, running her foot back and forth. “It’s you.”

“What does that mean, exactly?” Anger crept up my chest.

“You don’t do ‘dates.’” Her little air quotes pissed me off.

“I don’t really care what I do or don’t do. You lost the bet. Your punishment is a date. End of, Shorty.” I ran a hand down her arm, squeezing. “Turn off your overactive brain.”

A smile broke through her barriers, and she bit her delicious lip. “Okay. When?”

“You’ll get details at a later date.” I puffed my chest and tried not to appear too smug.

“Oh, so your people will call my people?” She snorted, shoving me in the side.

“You realize I do have people, right?”

“Oh, my God. I forgot. You do.”

“So, I need to hear a yes.”

“Sure. I guess. I don’t have a choice.” She grumbled and picked up her glove to walk to her car.

“No, you don’t.”

REVIEW:


I totally loved this book!!

This book is such a fun, exciting read that touches on good times, friendships, and of course love.

This book keeps you totally engaged from page one through the very last page!  I honestly had a hard time putting this book down!

I really liked the main characters, Kate and Brody.  They were genuine, realistic, and relatable.  They were easy to picture as a couple – the ones you’d go to for advice, cheer for, and even want to join for double dates.  Plus, their chemistry was just off the charts!!!  You could feel the passion dripping off the pages!!!  Also, they were so cute together.  Their silly, witty banter was beyond entertaining and led to real LOL’s that definitely got me some stares in the park LOL!!!  I really enjoyed following along on their adventure and couldn’t get enough of their story!

I really enjoyed reading this book and totally had a smile on most of the time I was reading it!  Furthermore, this book will definitely have you laughing-out-loud so probably not a good idea to read it at a library or class or work lol!

Further proof that opposites really do attract as Kate and Brody couldn’t be more different.  But I loved that no matter what they were always there for each other.  They always had each other’s backs.

I loved the storyline as the friends to lovers’ angle has always interested me.  I think we’ve all had that one friend that one day we noticed in another light and thought about crossing the line.  Perhaps we did, or didn't...  This book makes you want to go cross that line...  Right... NOW!!! LOL!!!

The writing style is fluid, well developed, and at a steady pace.

I like that this book touches on many topics such as love, romance, friendship, second chances, change, dedication, perseverance, growth, humor, determination, devotion, faith, hope, forgiveness, moving on, starting over, new beginnings, overcoming obstacles, and so much more!

All in all, I really enjoyed reading this book and would absolutely recommend this book to all NA romance readers!
