CHANCE OF A LIFETIME
Anderson Brothers #3
Releasing November 16th, 2015
Sometimes the biggest risk is playing it safe…
Gen Richards is tired of living down to her family’s expectation of the helpless blind girl. Resurrecting her high-school bucket list that begins with “kiss a total stranger” seems just the thing until she finds herself in a panty-melting lip lock with her big brother’s best friend.
Chance Anderson thrives on adrenaline, but Genny’s the one risk he’s not willing to take. His recklessness a decade ago landed her in the hospital and ejected him from her life. He’s bad for her and everyone knows it—especially her big brother.
Chance reluctantly helps Gen complete her bucket list in order to keep her out of trouble. Running through a freezing fountain, playing Spin the Bottle while fending off a mad horde of stinging insects, and skinny dipping with homicidal attack swans don’t hold a candle to the real danger: falling for the one person he can never have.
I loved every page of this book. It 's sweet and romantic, touching but also funny.
Jen Richards is a girl with a severe handicap but wants to be treated like a normal girl. She's tired of too much attention of her family. They want her to live under a bell jar and protect her from everything but that does not mean living. When she was a teenager she had made a bucket list and decides it's time to apply it. The first step is to kiss a stranger. But she ends up choosing the best friend of his brother, Chance Anderson. She was in love with him and ended up in hospital because of him ten years ago. since then they have never met. Chance has promised her brother to stay away from her but his heart is not able to do so.
The characters in this story are adorable. Gen is a strong woman, courageous, intelligent, full of will to live but to live really. Chance is a good guy, the only one that has managed to make Jen feel a normal girl. Together they are special, the chemistry between them is magical.
This is the third in the series but really does work well as a standalone - I had not read the earlier books and still thoroughly enjoyed this one.
It 's a very well written story, the author shows great sensitivity to write a story with a protagonist so special.
If you enjoy reading sweet romance, then definitely pick this up!
