A couple of months later, they meet again, and their connection can't be denied. Chance is a bit more of a free spirit, where Darren is constantly in control. They each show the other how to be a bit more like the other. Darren learns how to let go of his control, and Chance dives into Darren's world. They were very clearly falling in love with each other while being very afraid of whether or not they can make it last.
I loved the interactions between the two. They were fun and flirty overall. I really enjoyed watching them get comfortable and be vulnerable with each other. I loved how the age difference was not glossed over and ignored. It was a real concern for the guys, and there wasn't a magic fix for it.
They worked toward understanding and compromise. I absolutely loved this!
Chance and Darren meet on a flight. Their time together is interesting. Chance arrives on the plane in pajama pants and with a giant container of cheese balls. Darren was instantly attracted, despite the odd first impression. Darren wanted to ignore him, and keep to himself, but he couldn't help but to be drawn in to conversation by Chance. They flirted and had a good flight together but it ended there. Chance gave Darren his number but he never heard from him.
Months later, they meet up at a charity ball. This time, Chance goes after the intriguing older man. It doesn't hurt that Darren has been thinking about the other guy every single day since they met.
One of the things that Darren really likes about this younger man is that Chance is a take charge guy. Darren finds that enjoyable. Darren is always in charge, at work and in bed. But he likes the idea of being able to stop thinking and just do what he is told. But this only appeals to him if Chance is the one making the demands.
In the real world, Darren, the philanthropist, and Chance, the brilliant, exuberant college student don't have anything in common. Their 17 year age difference certainly doesn't help. What they find though is that they do go together well. The sex is hot, of course. But they also both bring important things to the relationship. Chance, despite being just a college kid, can really help Darren. He is actually capable to taking care of Darren and supporting him emotionally.
They both want to keep their relationship a secret, knowing that they would look foolish together in public. Chance is certainly embarrassed by his apartment and how little he has. And Darren is insecure, thinking Chance will realize he can do better than a man so much older than him. But the pull to each other is strong. They want to be together, just day by day, enjoying life, not just sex.
Since life is never easy, especially for people who live in such different worlds, they will face challenges and prejudice. They will need to decide if they can overlook all the obstacles in their way.
This was an absolutely sweet and romantic story. It is a story of two guys learning to find a way to be together. I loved it from the beginning and hated to see it end. I really liked both men and loved watching them navigate their way around their age difference. I sympathized with both of them as they struggled with their issues. The two of them made a wonderful couple and I thoroughly enjoyed their story.
Chance was adorable and a bit goofy, but he was also intelligent, responsible and impulsive (in a very good way). I loved how he would take charge with Darren when it came to the physical intimacy, even when he’d become a bit hesitant at some points—which was actually endearing. As for Darren, I liked that there was a contrast between his public, business persona and his true, personal nature…and that Chance was able to so easily bring out Darren’s softer side.
There is no doubt about their physical chemistry, and their intimate scenes are hot enough to warrant some self-fanning and the need to keep a cold drink on hand. What’s even better though is that they also mesh emotionally. Chance is aptly named since taking chances is what he leads Darren to do. Everything about the two of them together just fits perfectly—at least when it’s just the two of them. When Chance ventures into Darren’s professional world…well, that’s where the bit of drama enters the picture.
That leads me to my one peeve, and this is one of those conflict-stirrers that I’m just not personally fond of—the “I don’t really belong in his world, we’re too different due to age gap/class/upbringing” or whatever the thing is that is used as an excuse by one or both main characters in a story to justify why they shouldn’t be together. In this case, it was Chance thinking he doesn’t fit into Darren’s world of rich donors—an excuse really to head off the “he’ll get tired of me” he thinks is coming. Now like I said, this is a “me” thing; and while it was an irritation to me, I still really enjoyed the overall story.
A Chance at Love was a 4-star read for me, and I would definitely recommend this book to any M/M romance fan. You’re certainly going to find some incredibly stimulating and utterly sexy scenes, and those along with the adult language make this story one for readers 18+.
