I had life all figured out.
Married with a baby on the way I stupidly believed that things were perfect.
But then the good guy I fell in love with turned out to not be as good as I thought.
I was left alone to pick up the pieces of my life and provide for my daughter.
And then I met him.
The bad boy that just might not be so bad.
Three years after her husband walked out on her Arden James is struggling to make ends meet as a single mom. Despite it all, she knows she’s better off with her ex out of the picture, and so is her daughter.
Josh Hayes—player, jokester, and very naughty boy—is the guitar player for the band Willow Creek. He’s used to living the fast life, but suddenly it doesn’t appeal to him anymore, and he has his sights set on the fiery Arden.
Despite their undeniable chemistry, Arden isn’t sure she wants to invite a man into her life that has never been in a committed relationship before. But Hayes is determined to prove to her that there’s more to him than meets the eye. He just needs Arden to take a chance.
Take A Chance is the final book in the Willow Creek series and I was definitely tearing up over that fact. It was amazing to see the band one last time and their interactions especially as they have grown older but not necessarily acting that way. Their shenanigans definitely made for some laughter and fun filled times. But there was also some suspense that certainly added a darker tone to the book.
Hayes and Arden were well developed characters, ones that readers easily fall in love with. Just like the read of the Willow Creek series.
Micalea Smeltzer also has an interesting writing style, one that draws readers in and capture their attention. And the ending of Take A Chance, that was so beautiful that I wanted to cry for more than just the ending of an amazing series.
