About the Author
Eliza Boyd is a contemporary women's fiction and romance author. Also an avid reader, she writes novels, short stories, poetry, and whatever else strikes her fancy. Born and raised in Northern Illinois, she now lives in sunny Arizona with her husband and her plethora of animals. When she's not reading, writing, or working, she can be found walking around her neighborhood (for exercise, not for stalking), taking photos of her pets, or catching up on her favorite shows. Catching up really means binge-watching.
Feel free to contact her on any of her social media sites. She spends too much time on the Internet, so she'll probably get back to you right away.

Such a great story! For it being Eliza's first book, it made me feel as if she'd been writing for years!
This book grabbed my attention from the start! The character of Chelsea can be relatable to so many women. Falling in love at a young age, getting married, and then realizing that maybe the boy you were so head over heels for isn't who you thought he was.
One Chance Night isn't a story of love--it's a story of discovery.
Chelsea has spent too many years living for someone else. It's her time to finally shine.
"What I need is a plan. Preferably one that doesn’t include another diet or a loveless marriage."
With her happiness seemingly so far out of reach, Chelsea takes her co-worker's invite to get out of the house one night. Little did she know that Stevie and her friend, Mayra, were about to change her outlook about everything without even knowing. This was going to be a night to remember--a night of freedom.
I honestly can say that I was holding my breathe the entire time Chelsea was in that bar. I wanted to know what was going to happen! It's like I couldn't turn the pages quick enough!!!
All it took was the mention of a man with a guitar and I knew this story would get me hook, line and sinker! Did I mention he played country music? Yeah buddy.
Brett. He was swoonworthy from the start, but he was also much more. You could tell he was about to change the course of this story in many ways. It's like he "got" Chelsea even before he really talked to her. With just his words, compassion, and a guitar, he made her feel things she had never felt in her marriage.
"Brett’s smile simultaneously threatens to put me at ease and blast my nervousness into overdrive. My heart and brain just can’t decide which way to go."
Please do not think this story has anything to do with cheating. It has nothing of the sort! It's about realizing when enough is enough, and there are better things out in the world beyond the work and home you seem confined to.
"With the way I’ve been treated for the past four years, I have come to assume that I’m not worth being treated like I mean anything. I’ve so wholly lost my self-importance, my significance. And I haven’t known Brett for longer than two hours, but he’s already pointing me in the direction of my value. He’s reminded me in the space of kindness that I’m deserving of love."
One night. That's all it takes sometimes. One night. One step forward. One change of mind. One chance encounter.
"This night is ending up a lot differently than I imagined it would—and it’s certainly turning out to be worth whatever happens next."
I loved every character (well, except for Wesley. He can go away! Hehe). The friendships are amazing and the bonds made will stay forever.
Eliza Boyd tells an empowering story about what it truly means to take control of your life and that some chances are worth taking.
This book is not to be missed!
Amazing job, Eliza:) Can't wait for the next in the series!!
"No matter what the results are, at least I’ll know that I tried. I mean, when the universe gives you that many signs to go after what you want, you should probably listen."
The novel had the right combination of romance mixed with difficult, life changing decisions. The reader followed Chelsea, who wasn’t perfect, had made her share of mistakes, and was in an awful situation, but I couldn’t help but feel for her. She was a creature of routine, and it took taking a chance and breaking that routine for her to get a much needed wakeup call, pushing her to change her life for the better.
I couldn’t help but immediately start the next chapter to find out what would happen next and what Chelsea would do. The words flowed and my eyes floated across them until the final page, which left me with a perfect ending to the story, not making me suffer through one of those awful cliff hangers, but I still wanted more of the beautiful characters who made me feel so much. If you read this book, which you should, then we are all in luck because it is a series, while the main characters won’t be central, they will make appearances so we can get our fix.
Eliza Boyd did an incredible job painting the pictures, introducing the characters and making them feel real, and created a poignant story that I think many people can relate to in one way or another, whether they survived a bad relationship or have fallen in love. This debut novel will make you stop and take notice of this new author and I know she will have much more to share with us.
Take a chance on One chance Night, you won’t regret it! I certainly can’t wait to read what she writes next!
I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
This is not a book about cheating. It's a book about finding yourself when you were all but lost. Chelsey runs into the handsome country singer Bret and clarity finds her. She realizes there's more to life than being someone's maid and cook.
The story progresses from there and you find yourself rooting for Chelsey to put her big girl panties on and take the next step in her life--a life that leads to happiness.
This sweet romance was different than romances I've read lately. It was wholesome and good. Very refreshing. I would recommend this book to everyone!
