Our Chance is the second book in the Hope River series by Margaret McHeyzer. Each book can be read as standalone but I recommend reading the series since they are interconnected. I enjoyed Hope’s River but I fell harder for Our Chance. Jake is just so protective and swoony.
Six years ago, only a few months apart two more residents were added to Hope River. And now, Jake and Elle were loved by the small town. Her as the owner of the local diner and he as the sheriff. Over the years they have become friends, not close ones since they both don’t let anyone get too close. Even with that Elle developed a crush on the man. I mean, who can blame her. Jake is almost thirty, sweet, protective, friendly, and looks damn good in a uniform. Everyone is town sees the way they look at each other but neither has pulled the trigger on their attraction.
Jake knew Elle was hiding something. He didn’t want to push her but he needed to protect her. Make sure she didn’t run. He saw it in her eyes. So, he does what any friend would do. He helps her. He listens. Kinda. Lol. He wants to prove to her that he won’t look at her differently after knowing her secret. And he hopes she does the same. They both have a past. A reason why they were in Hope River. Will they understand once their pasts are revealed?
These two. They both have things to work out before they can move on. With each other or separately. The small town is rooting for them and so was I. They are too funny, sweet, and dirty birds. It’s a slow burn. A book full of hope. Twists. Laughter. Food. And love.
“What do you need me to do? Put me to work, use me as you please.” Um, okay. You can start by taking your shirt off and letting me run my hands all over your bare chest. “Anything in particular you need?”
Aha. I can think of plenty. “Um, can you turn the lights on in the kitchen,” I say as my voice cracks with a tinge of excitement. I clear my throat. Damn hussy.
“I’ve been holding on for something more, and now I know, you’re my more.”
“We have an engagement party to get to.” He walks out, leaving me high and dry. Stupid term. More like wet and horny.
Okay, Sheriff Jacob Barnes, game on.
STRONG, BRAVE AND COURAGEOUS CHARACTERS.
**Write something worth reading**
I’m Margaret and I’m a self-published author.
Recently I was fortunate in obtaining New York Times best-selling status on my YA/NA book – Ugly, and my YA book – Mistrust.
My last six books have been YA and I’m completely in love with the genre. I love being able to communicate with people through my words and stories.
My writing genres all differ, but the one thing I keep consistent is my heroines. All my female lead characters are strong, gutsy and not the ‘perfect’ woman. While my books all have romantic elements in them, they aren’t just about the romance. They’re about finding strength, acceptance and making life long connections.
I hope you enjoy my stories as much as I have while writing them.
