I absolutely love Therese Plummer as the narrator of this series. Her smooth voice keeps me focused and actually relaxes me. Any of her books are my go to when I need a nice cozy book. I had a tough day on Thursday, and she made me feel as if I could conquer the world.
This series keeps getting better and better. Some of the books could be read as stand alones. However, I would read the books in order, especially this one. The Chance starts where The Hero left off. The compound has been raided and Laine was successfully able to get all of the women and children out, with the exception of one. Laine has decided to stay in Thunder Point to recover after her gun shot wound. She also needs to mentally prepare before returning to the FBI as an agent. Laine rents a nice cozy house that has an incredible view. Only a couple of the citizens of Thunder Point know who she really is.
Eric has a sordid past but over the past few years has become a reformed citizen. He is also fairly new to Thunder Point. He is the new owner of a garage and is also the father of Ashley (Gina’s daughter). Laine and Eric quickly become friends, but both are holding their past in check. I loved both Eric and Laine. Laine is a woman that goes for what she wants. She even had to ask Eric on their first date. Laine ended up bonding with her father, which was very refreshing.
This is by far one of my favorite contemporary romance series. All of the characters are likeable and each comes with their own issues.
