First there is Ella. She is as gentle as her name implies. She is just looking for a place to set her "roots". She has lost everyone in her family. By moving to Detroit, she hopes to be close to her two best friends and start a new life full of hope and love.
Reality quickly sets in when she arrives early from a trip and finds her douchebag boyfriend in bed with a chick. I am so glad she throws his ass out of the apartment.
Then she literally runs into Chance. The name says it all... yes he is gorgeous so we are all cheering for her to take a "chance" with him. I know, I could not pass it up. But this man is different. He is a gentleman, quiet, loving, caring, and most of all, willing to stand up and defend her from "douchebag".
This love affair is scorching hot. Steamy scenes are just the beginning. The bed sheets are on fire! And this man is a romantic at heart.
He also has secrets that he will not share. Ella can tell he has been deeply hurt and hopes he will eventually share all with her.
As the plot thickens and attempts are made to kill Ella all bets are off. Who is doing this? "Douchebag"? Someone else? Why?
I hope you enjoy this novel as much as I did. I have singing the praises of N.B. Baker's debut novel for days. If you get a chance, check out the video trailer on her facebook page. It is a gem! [...]
Ella and Chance are no stranger to heartache. Once they meet they have that instant connection. I love that together they help each other heal. Ella has opened up to Chance about her past but he keeps his closed off. When his past comes back to haunt him will Ella be hurt? Will it tear them apart?
I really loved Ella's best friends Sarah and Justin. I loved how great and caring they was when it came to Ella. They are the kinds of friends I think everyone deserves.
The epilogue......OMG can you say cold chills?? I LOVED it!!!!
This is a great short read. It didn't take me anytime to finish it. The only thing I can complain about is that I just wanted more!!!! This was my first N.B. Baker book but it def won't be my last :)
I can't wait for more from this author!! Well done!!
The story follows Ella as she starts to pick up the pieces of her life. She hasn't had it easy but she manages with the help of her best friends Sarah and Justin. During an encounter with her sleazy ex, she is rescued by Chance. He is the definition of mysterious and hot, complete with a cryptic tattoo on his back. They feel an instant connection and can't stay away from each other.
As they spend more time together, their connection deepens and there is plenty steamy goodness. Ella opens up about her past but Chance holds his cards close to his chest. As Chance's past catches up to him and puts Ella at risk, he does the only thing he can think of to protect her, push her away. However, this does not solve the problem and only causes them both more suffering.
Finally having had enough, their friends step in and talk some sense into Ella. She goes to get her man back but comes upon a surprise. Luckily she was there when she was to save the day. After this final revelation, Chance spills all and finally puts his past demons to rest. And the epilogue, chills!
I loved how the secondary characters in this book only enhanced the story. They showed a depth to each of the characters that wouldn't have been achieved without them in the story. They all played a significant role while keeping the focus on Chance and Ella.
Overall, it was a great story that gave me everything I love- suspense, angst, steam and a happy ending. I look forward to future work from this author.
Holy hotness. This book not only has an awesome alpha male, a strong female character and hot steamy sex scenes but a dose of darkness and mystery. Ella has moved to Detroit after losing her grandparents. She moves close to her best friends and hopes to start a new life. She falls in love but ends up with a broken heart. Chance has also moved to Detroit after heartache. He carries a much darker secret. They have an instant connection when they meet and their relationship moves full speed ahead. Chance is an alpha male with a huge romantic side. Chance's past comes back to haunt him and Ella is the one who falls victim to it. Can love win out? Can Chance save Ella? This story moves fast and twists and turns that you don't see coming make you keep turning the pages. What starts as a steamy sex filled romance novel soon turns into a intense suspense that keeps you guessing. There are a few minor points that I didn't care for in this book. Mostly is was how at some points Ella just glossed over the secret that Chance was holding back and the phone calls she was receiving. At times she was very freaked out and then at other times she just blew it off. The epilogue was beautiful and will make you shed a tear. If you want more than just a romance novel then pick up this debut novel by N.B. Baker, you won't be disappointed.
