A rising star in the corporate world, Emma Winthrop enjoys the view from her cubicle in sunny Florida. But when she’s dispatched to a nursing home in Whisper Creek for three months of field experience, she discovers a slice of heaven made of mountains and mayhem—mostly in the form of rugged, drop-dead gorgeous Jasper Stone, who grinds his specialty beans at the town’s best coffee shop in between organizing dodge-ball games and wheelchair races in Emma’s hallways.
When Jasper walks in on this beautiful angel in silky purple underwear trying to rinse out her blouse, it’s a breathtaking view—even for a Montana native. Wreaking havoc here at Shady Acres keeps his dad in good spirits, but getting under Emma’s skin is proving to be even more fun. Jasper knows that he’s falling faster than a man with his past has any right to, but his body and his heart have a mind of their own. And Emma appears to be claiming both.
I'm so glad I took a chance in choosing Taking a Chance! It's a fun, fast paced romance. Jasper and Emma have similar pasts that haunt them. Jasper is fun loving and sexy. He keeps the story light when need be, but also has emotional depth and guilt he can't seem to escape. Emma is determined to stay on her career building path. Her care for others and hidden playfulness makes her a likable protagonist. The connection between Jasper and Emma is undeniable. Their banter is awesome!
If you're looking for an amusing and sweet romance where the lead characters help each other find redemption, I highly recommend Taking a Chance!
