Beautiful book! I have read the other four books, and enjoyed all of them. This fifth book made interesting reading, and there was a surprise that I didn't see coming.

"I thought I knew all the characters since I've read every book in the series so far - but this was by far the most eye opening! I loved getting a chance to know Bruce a little better and really understand his perspective and the kind of person he is. There were so many curve balls thrown that I didn't see coming with the people in Chance! If I could read the next one now, I would pick it up immediately. Amazing story that just keeps getting better and better!"
Bruce Grady, Chance's All-American good guy hasn't had it easy.
After his father's crippling fall, he's forced to return home to take over the family business, giving up his own dreams.
But he's a man of honor... and his word.
The woman he's secretly loved for years has married another man. He's moved on to a new love, but life in a small town means your past is always around every corner.
When temptation and opportunity come hand in hand, can Bruce fight one while chasing the other? Can he keep the promises he's made to those he loves and still get what he wants?
Excerpt: “You have your doubts. Listen, it’s all good, man. I’m not ready for anything heavy, anyhow. I’m focusing on work and nothing—”
In his ear, a sultry voice said, “All work, and no play makes Bruce a dull boy.”
He turned his face almost into Ophelia—Effie—Torres’ generous cleavage, then quickly up to her face. She grinned wickedly and sat beside him, close enough that their legs touched. Bruce’s brain said move away, but his body disagreed. Logic reminded him that Effie was barely twenty-four, and he just turned thirty. They belonged to different decades. Probably had little in common.
Illogic made him watch her lips against the wineglass. The way she threw her head back when she laughed, exposing her slender throat. When the music started up again, he couldn’t tear his eyes away from her body as it swayed to the beat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it!! Nicki Holt - The Overflowing Bookcase
"Wow - this book had it all: beautifully written characters, moments of pure laughter, moments where you wipe a tear from your cheek and a storyline that had me hooked from the opening chapter. Tenley Harper is not a usual name, but when two different women get two different prognosis from the doctor you would think he would make sure he was talking to the correct woman, especially when one of them is dying from a brain tumor. But with emotions running high both women decide to take charge of their destiny - you have to read this book to see what happens!! I highly recommend this book - it was my first by this author and it will not be my last."
Tenley 'Ten' Harper is the free-spirited, eccentric daughter of former pro-wrestler, Charlie 'The Hurricane' Harper. For Ten, there isn't a problem that can't be solved with a cocktail and the beach. Until a twist of fate turns her world upside-down.
Tenley 'Lee' Harper is the middle school teacher & suburban wife of Kenny Harper. For Lee, order, organization, and proper planning is the solution to everything. Until she gets the shock of her life.
This dramedy unfolds when two women walk into the same doctor's office... and walk out with each other's test results. Come along for the ride as the two Tenleys take us on separate adventures full of second chances, missed opportunities, chasing dreams, and facing fears.
A cast of endearing characters rounds out this terrific tale of living in the moment and loving with all you've got.
Beautiful, bittersweet and heartfelt. Reminded me of the movie Ghost. Loved this book!

My name is Elsa & I’ve been exactly where you are right now.
When I began my writing journey, I took a leap of faith, flew by the seat of my pants... and landed on my face. I made a lot of mistakes along the way but that’s okay because I learned so much from each one.
It is from these growth experiences, that I am confident I can help YOU on your journey. Whether you’ve just started writing your manuscript, or you’ve had one ready and waiting to go for years, SOMETHING has held you back.

Good news. Help is HERE.
As a traditionally & self-published author of nearly two dozen novels, short stories, children’s books, articles, and writer’s guides, AND having appeared on author panels, television, YouTube, radio, and print, I’ve learned quite a bit about the writing, publishing, and promoting process.
Now I’m ready to share what I’ve learned with you.
Why? Well, as I mentioned, I’ve been where you are now. I’ve self-sabotaged my efforts and ambitions for fear of rejection and embarrassment, and stalled out before reaching the finish line because I didn’t know how to get help, and waited YEARS before I finally got enough nerve to JUST DO IT.
Now, whenever I hear or see someone casting aside their dreams for those very reasons, it breaks my heart! I don’t want you to give up; I want you to succeed.
So, I created my unique and personalized approach to helping you along your journey on the Path To Authorship©. Whatever stage you’re at, whatever you’re writing, I can help you take the steps to achieve your goal.

But what I can assure you, is that I will encourage, motivate, and educate you in the ways of the craft & the industry to the best of my knowledge and ability, and I will arm you with the resources and tools to get there.
This guide is your "crash course" for each phase. You can use it alone, or as part of my Path To Authorship coaching program. No tricks, sales-gimmicks, or B.S., just straightforward help to pursue your writing goals.
Thirty-four-year-old Keira Travis is getting the hang of being single after divorcing her arrogant, narcissistic husband Darren, and ready to get back out in the dating world. Sort of. Actually, Keira is content with her quiet life—raising her two daughters, caring for their two dogs, tending her garden, and writing her articles for a gardening magazine—but her best (and also single) friend Molly has other ideas. After a bottle of wine, Keira agrees to join an online dating website and the cringe-worthy fun begins almost immediately. Adding to Keira’s woes is a snarky, overly involved narrator who inserts himself into her life at the most inopportune moments. From him, we learn of Keira’s penchant for clumsiness, her aversion for confrontation, and her undying love for all things Fitzwilliam Darcy. This becomes a trifecta of trouble for our protagonist as she finds herself in one mortifying predicament after another. At long last, Keira meets her very own Mr. Darcy (Kyle Darcy, that is) but can he handle the chaos of her life?
