Release Day! Chance Romance by Lisa Becker ~ My Thoughts #ChanceRomance

Congrats Lisa
on the release today of
Chance Romance!

Chance Romance: An Opposites Attract Instalove Story by Lisa Becker
Contemporary Short Story, 101 pages
Published July 27, 2021

When they meet by chance through mutual friends, can a nerdy intellectual and former jock move past their own insecurities to turn a weekend fling into lasting love?

Self-proclaimed bookworm Jackie Mayerhoffer’s love of romance novels propelled her to write a bestseller, but at the expense of her own relationship. While a staunch champion of happily ever afters for everyone else, she’s pessimistic about her own prospects. Dogged by low self-esteem, she feels even lower being stuck on a long weekend with a group of happy couples.

Logan Chance dropped out of college to play soccer professionally in Europe, but his hopes of glory were dashed by a career ending injury. Since his return to the states, he’s struggled to grow a small business and help support his brother with disabilities. Plagued by uncertainty, he agrees to a much-needed weekend away in Malibu with a childhood friend.

Over four days of beach play, board games, and shared meals, opposites attract when the lonely author meets the troubled jock. Can they move past their own insecurities to turn a fling or “chance romance” into lasting love? And is it a chance romance after all?

If you love an opposites attract romance filled with witty humor, steamy fun, and a swoon-worthy happily ever after, you’ll enjoy this short, instalove novel from award-winning romance author Lisa Becker.  Buy now or read for free with Kindle Unlimited.

My thoughts about Chance Romance ~~ 

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first line.)

First lines—"'I'm going to castrate him,' Kendra fumes, hanging up the phone and balling her hands into a fist."

Oh man, there is so much to love about Lisa Becker's new book, Chance Romance. I loved the premise—a group of friends coming together for a fun-filled summer weekend giveaway! It was great reading about all the fun activities they had planned. I loved the mix of characters and the way they all meshed—for the most part. I loved watching opposites attract, with chemistry that wouldn't quit and with just the right amount of heat. 

The first scene takes place in a bookstore, so that really grabbed my attention. As a reader and booklover, I loved it! How could you not? And the main character is a writer, so that was another win-win for me. I loved that we got an inside look at some of the writer's angst that goes into creating a story. 

Jackie and Logan (loved them both!) are thrown together for the weekend with this group of friends, both of them sort of feeling like fifth wheels, not sure why they agreed to go along. Well, could two people be more different? And why do they both feel this crazy attraction to each other, kind of like a love-hate thing? Sparks are gonna fly!

It was so much fun watching these two struggle with their beliefs and emotions, as they tried to understand what exactly was drawing them together. When it was all said and done, when I got to the end of the story, I honestly had a smile on my face. And possibly a tear or two! That's how emotionally invested I was in these two people. 

I absolutely loved this story and can't stop thinking about it and the interesting lives of Jackie and Logan. You really need to put Chance Romance on your summer TBR list.... now!

I received an ARC of Chance Romance from the author and this is my honest opinion.
