3.5 stars full of hopes and chances.
Saw this stand alone book by Foor and thought, "What the hay!" I'm a steady, but mid-rating, fan of her Mitchell books, so I know her style and can say that I appreciate her knack for creating decent New Adult stories.

The title A Hope and a Chance is a play on the main characters' names , Hope and Chance, and a motif for their half-forbidden, half-underage (LOL, Hope is 17-about to be eighteen at the end of the year and Chance is 21)sweet romance.

There were many moments in this book where I enjoyed myself as I became engrossed in the love story between Hope and Chance. But there were more times when I was left scratching my head.

Hope and Chance meet when both of their lives were changing. Hope had just graduated from high school and was adjusting to her father moving back to their small town with his new girlfriend. Chance was adjusting to losing everything he held dear in his life and having to start over. When they accidentally meet wh

When it feels like the world is crumbling at your feet, sometimes it just takes one person to put all of the pieces back together.

17-year-old Hope has just graduated from high school early, but with no prospects of going to college, an ex-boyfriend who took advantage of her, and a strained relationship with her father who up and left her and her mother for a younger woman, things were not looking good for her. That all changes, however, after a chance encounter with a sexy stranger living in her

4.5 stars. I loved this book. I loved the main characters. Hope is a 17-year old girl trying to cope with her parent's divorce and now being forced to move back with her dad and his "new love" because her mother has lost her house. Turns out dad's new love, "Buffy" (not so much older than Hope), has a 23-year old brother, Chance, living in the pool house in the backyard, trying to put his life back together as being falsely accused of a crime and losing his college baseball scholarship.

After looking at all the other readers reviews I am wondering if I even read the same book! The writing was terrible and I wanted to punch Hope in the face for being so stupid as well as her parents! Half time I didn't even understand what was happening as the characters dialog went in circles. The only thing I liked about the book was the story line, too bad the author couldn't carry through! ...more

I had a hard time with a 17 year old girl who was many times acting as immature as her age carrying on the way that she did. I was disappointed with the content more than anything.

"Hope, I know we're young. I don't want you to feel like this is something we have to set in stone. Our love story has been complicated from the very beginning. It seems like we always have some hurdle standing in our way. I bought you this ring as a promise. I promise to always love you and want to share my life and my future with you. You don't have to wear, it but just keep it until you're ready." ~ Chance Avery

The heart wants what the heart wants, and for Hope and Chance, their hearts are leading them towards each other, preventing them from keeping one another at distance, which would be the "right thing" to do considering Hope is supposed to be off limits due to her age and the circumstances of Chance's relationship with her father. But they can't deny their feelings, and soon they find themselves in a secret relationship - one that they know could blow up in their faces, but what they feel for each ...more

A Hope and A Chance is an emotional heartwarming, yet steamy story of two people existing in life, just trying to get by while life keeps throwing challenges their way. When everything is constantly knocking you down, your hopes and dreams taken away from you,leaving you with nothing and no hopes for the future you learn to take each day as it comes. When you meet a person that opens you up to living again, you hold tight and don't let go regardless of the consequences.

A Hope and a Chance is the first book that I have ever read by Jennifer Foor, and I really enjoyed it! This definitely will not be the last book I read of hers, and I can't believe that I had never read anything by her before. I really liked the characters and I enjoyed Jennifer Foor's writing style a lot.

Hope is struggling with everything in her life being turned upside down. Her father has returned to town with his young girlfriend and has

Looking for a delicious forbidden love story? Looking for a book loaded with angst, passion, and red hot sex? A Hope And A Chance by Jennifer Foor has all of these elements and more. It is a mesmerizing story of undeniable passion and undying love.

Hope's world has been off kilter since her parents divorced a few years earlier. Her father went through a mid life crisis and left the state. The separation forced Hope and her mother to move in with her grandmother. Hope has had to grow up fast.

4 1/2 Stars!!

I will officially say it! I am a Jenn Foor Whore!! Yes! I will shout it from the roof tops and let everyone know it. I adore this lady. If she were to write the phone book I would probably devour it and read it all over again! I binge read all 9 of her Mitchell Family books when I was on vacation this year and saw that she had a new book open for review. I jumped ship (literally since I was on a cruise) to sign up for it. I am not at all disappointed that I did. Chance is giving all

This was a really great book. It is filled with tragedy, love, heartbreak, mystery, and tenderness. Hope is 17 years old and she just graduated from high school. She lives with her mother but they had to move in with her grandmother years before. Her mother is low on money so then Hope's father comes back to town with a young new girlfriend and bought an expensive house. When he left her mom, he left Hope as well and hasn't been there for her at all. Since she's still a minor, she is forced to m ...more

So, this is my very first Jennifer Foor book. (hangs head in shame) I know, I know. I feel like everyone has read her but my TBR list is just crazy long so when the opportunity came for an arc of this book I took it, knowing I would HAVE to make time to read it. I am so glad I did. I really did enjoy this light NA read!

"So, my brother is in love with soon to be step-daughter. Should we call the Maury show now or wait until your father finds out?"

Jennifer Foor is an amazing author. When I first read the blurb, I have to admit that I was reluctant to get this book. After all, the main characters were 17 and 21. I was a bit concerned about a 17 year old falling in love forever. Jennifer wove her magic. I read this book forgetting for the most part that Hope was only 17. I couldn't believe that I was cheering for a 17 year old (one year older than my youngest son) to find their happily ever after. But, I was. Hope and Chance met. Then they ...more

What a great happy ever after story. There are many ups and downs for the couple and I just couldn't stop turning the page to see what would happen next. And now a bit about the story...

A tale of forbidden love. But a love so strong it was impossible to deny.

Sneaking around wasn't something Hope and Chance wanted to do but no one would understand. Not with their age gap being a concern. But only for 6 more months.

Could they make it?

This story had so many twists, turns, and downright heart wrenching moments. I felt every emotion that Hope and Chance experienced. They fought their attraction - I despaired. They argued about why they shouldn't be together - I angered. They were

Another one of Jenn Foor's books that I absolutely loved. The two main characters are both strong beautiful people. Chance is living with his sister and her new boyfriend in their pool house. His past is haunting him and he feels like he is not really living.
Hope is forced to live with her had and his not much older than her girlfriend. Her dad's girlfriend has a hot brother living in the pool house.
The two are instantly attracted to one another and had a one night stand prior to her moving in.

This book was really cute. I liked it. But I can’t say I loved it. Honestly, at times I felt it was predictable and sometimes cheesy. But other times I put my kindle down, my heart sped up and was thinking “Is this really happening?”

This was the first book I read by Jennifer Foor. I think it was a great story and very well written. I was sucked in and wanted to find exactly what was going to happen to Hope and Chance. I like surprises and this story was definitely full of them. Sometimes age has nothing to do with what we want in life, and this story is proof of that. I could feel the love these two shared coming right off the pages. Hope isn't concerned with what others think and she only wants to be happy not caring about ...more

if you're lucky one day you will meet the one person who will be your game changer, your soulmate and Hope and Chance were lucky because they met each other right when their lives could've gone either way, they both had dealt with tragedies and traumas and they were at the fork in the road where they could either lose themselves to the darkness of their pasts or pull each other into the light.

When I first started reading this book I was thinking it was another YA book. The more I read the more I discovered it is so much more than that. This book really sticks with you. You start falling in love with the characters without realizing it. By the time I was finished I had a huge book hangover. I am a huge fan of Jennifer Foors, so it shouldn’t have surprised me how much I loved this book.

You have 17 years old Hope that is so much older than she seems. You see her over the course of time

I seriously cannot get enough of Jennifer Foor's books!!! A Hope and a Chance is just as good and steamy as all the others! I loved seeing how bold and independent Hope was in getting what she wanted. And's like he gets a second "chance" at life, even when it's probably the worst scenario possible. But sometimes, things cannot be avoided and you can't deny feelings! At first, I hated Buffy. She just seemed like the gold diggin' ditzy blonde, but over time I fell in love with her! I a ...more
