The Chance is a wonderfully written emotional love story between not only a man and a woman, but the story of love between families. Another great read from Robyn Carr. ~ Piper, Guilty Pleasures
With its breathtaking vistas and down-to-earth people, Thunder Point is the perfect place for FBI agent Laine Carrington to recuperate from a gunshot wound and contemplate her future. The locals embraced Laine as one of their own after she risked her life to save a young girl from a dangerous cult. Knowing her wounds go beyond the physical, Laine hopes she’ll fit in for a while and find her true self in a town that feels safe. She may even learn to open her heart to others, something an undercover agent has little time to indulge.
Eric Gentry is also new to Thunder Point. Although he’s a man with a dark past, he’s determined to put down roots and get to know the daughter he only recently discovered. When Laine and Eric meet, their attraction is obvious to everyone. But while the law enforcement agent and the reformed criminal want to make things work, their differences may run too deep…unless they take a chance on each other and find that deep and mysterious bond that belongs to those who choose love over fear.
Review copy provided for an honest review
The Chance is book 4 in The Thunder Point series. I have loved each one of these stories. The Chance is a wonderful addition to this series. With each new book I fall more in love with this series and the characters.
We met Laine Carrington in The Hero. Laine was the FBI agent that helped Devon and her daughter Mercy escape from a bad situation they all found themselves in. I was hoping that we would get more Laine in future books after reading The Hero, so I was glad to see she was the heroine of the next book.
Laine has come to Thunder Point after taking leave from the FBI. She was injured in the line of duty, and is taking time off to heal, and make some decisions that could change her life. I enjoyed getting Laine’s back story and getting to know her family. The story with Laine and her dad was very emotional. You felt Laine’s pain, confusion and regret. Several times I just wanted to hug her and tell her it would all work out in the end. Laine is such a strong character that you just root for her the entire story. I love strong kick a$$ women, and Laine is certainly in that category.
Eric Gentry has not lived the perfect life by any means. But, Eric has turned is life around for the good. Eric owned a successful repair and auto body shop in Oregon, but has moved to Thunder Point to be closer to his daughter. Eric is the father of Gina’s daughter Ashley. I was hoping we would get a little more interaction with Eric and Ashley since he just found out that he is father. I have loved “watching” the relationship grow between Eric and Ashley. I hope Ms. Carr explores this father daughter relationship further in future stories. Eric has bought the local gas station and is busy expanding the business to include auto repair and body work. Eric may have made lots of bad decisions in his younger years, but he has seen the error of his ways. For me Eric is just one of those heroes that you just fall in love with.
When Laine and Eric meet there is an instant attraction, but I was glad it was not done as Insta-Love! Their relationship develops over time. These are two people not looking for anything permanent, but want to explore their attraction further. They worry that since they come from two completely different worlds how can a relationship work between them, but soon realize that those differences make them perfect for each other. Things seem to be working against them when Laine has to deal with a major family issue. But, I loved that even apart they were stronger.
The Chance is a wonderfully written emotional love story between not only a man and a woman, but the story of love between families. Another great read from Robyn Carr.
