If I could give more than five stars, I would!

Right from the prologue, you're in. I seriously cried THE. WHOLE. TIME!

This book is about a second chance love and what it takes to get there. This journey between Sabrina and Mike, was beautiful. There were times I wanted to choke him. I understood why he would feel some what responsible for Sabrina's situation but when she tells him that she doesn't see things the way he does, BELIEVE HER MAN!

See, I don't know if I could feel the same as her and b

This story stole my breath, made me laugh & cry, & want to punch a hole in the wall! There wasn't a scene or a moment that I didn't cherish. When a story has the ability to make me cry it instantly becomes one of those books that will forever have a special place in my heart. This story was well written, although it had its errors along the way, it just didn't matter because this was one beautiful story! There were also amazing secondary characters that play

This has been one of the hardest reviews I have had to write. Not because the book sucked, in fact it was the total opposite, this book freaking rocks! It was just so hard for me because my emotions where all over the place after reading this story. I became emotionally attached to the characters in a way I have never been before. My heart is still going through the emotions of the book and it’s been 2 days! As I write this review, I feel every emotion all over again and remember the moments I l ...more

I had a hard time on how to rate this book. I loved the storyline and really liked that the main characters were in their mid to late 30's and not mid 20's. However the editing and inconsistencies was hard to get past. I am not usually picky about editing issues but there was so many in this book it was hard to ignore. Also, the over use of certain words. When Mike and his friend are having a conversation they said dude every other word. Dude, It was ridiculous. Dude, intelligent men in their la ...more

This is a must-read romance!

I fell in love with Mike and Sabrina. They both fought their feelings for each other and tried to pretend they were just friends, but it was easy to tell that it was more. I liked how forgiving Sabrina was, even though she probably shouldn't have sometimes, and hated Mike at times, but I really enjoyed their journey. I am looking forward to the next book in this series. I hope Nick gets his story.

OMG! I felt every single emotion writen! I laughed, cried, had my heart broken, and mended back, had moments where I released the breath I didn't know I was holding!

This story seemed to leap right off my kindle. It makes you just want to crawl right into Mayra Statham's mind and demand to know what else she has planned for us.

This story follows Sabrina who is recently widowed with three children. She wakes up one day and realizes her life is no longer how she had planned. No more is the love of her life at her side. Everything going forward she must now face alone. Just going through the motions of sun up to sun down. That is until she runs

Newly introduced to Mayra and couldn't wait to read. Fell in love from the first page. So many emotions. Loved the fact that it was a complete story and wasn't left wondering and waiting for more. Sabrina is a strong character, fantastic mom, and a genuine person you could easily picture as being her best friend. Mike is a great fit for her. it was so easy to get lost in this story, and every time i had to put it down, I couldn't wait to start again. Looking forward to following Mayra and readin ...more

FLOVED this story! Mike and Sabrina....just gave me all the feels. My only complaint is I felt like it went further on when it could have had maybe some deleted scenes. It didn't take away from the story mind you. I can't wait to see what's next!

I'm not exaggerating when I say I have found my new favorite author. Mayra Statham's debut novel, Crown's Chance at Love is honestly exactly how I want a book to be done. I read a ton of books and I feel like they all are missing something.. But Crown's Chance at Love meets every single criteria I look for.

For me, this was a story about the journey the characters find themselves on as they discover each other and their feelings for each other. It is not an easy journey for either Sabrina or Michael although for different reasons. It is emotional yet at times full of fun and sweetness.

The story starts with profound grief as Sabrina lays to rest her husband who was killed by a drunk driver and contemplates the future for herself and her three children. Tissues needed as you understand the incredibl

This is a fantastic debut from new author Mayra Statham.

Follow the story of Sabrina and Mike Crown (whom the book is named after) and their pursuit of heartbreak, acceptance, happiness and love.

Sabrina loses her husband and father to her three children in a horrific car accident by a drunk driver. Left to pick up of the pieces of her and her children’s devastation, Sabrina finds herself moving through the everyday paces of life in a monotonous fashion. Then she meets Mike Crown.

Crowns chance at love is about Sabrina who loses her husband in a terrible tragedy…… Leaving behind a wife and 3 small children.

She bumps into what she thinks is by chance a man at Starbucks and they hit it off and learn to get to know each other. Little does Sabrina relies that Mike is keeping a really big secret from her and isn’t sure how to tell her.

It all comes to a head and they work things out and it becomes a happy ever after.

Okay, so get the tissues before you even start. This is one of the best books I have ever read. So emotional and so good! I was blown away here and am still feeling the emotions of this book. Just thinking about it I start to get teary eyed. I felt so many emotions with Sabrina. I think she is one of the most amazing characters I have ever read. I have no real words to explain just how powerful the emotions you will feel are. Mike is one sexy 40 year old. How can you not fall for this man. The b ...more

Mayra Statham has a gift. She weilds her pen with beautiful use of language, emotion, character development and imagery. I was hooked after the first few pages and though I tried to take my time, the pages flew by.

I have never felt such a strong connection to any character, let alone multiple characters, in a single book. I laughed, I cried, I wanted to smack some people and punch out others. I felt myself rooting for the couple and hoping they would work it out already. She knew her characters

I came across this book on Amazon yesterday and LOVED the blurb and plot and I one clicked it. After reading last night and today at lunch, I was so frustrated with misspelled words, the change from first to third person and lack of editing that I couldn't finish it.

HOWEVER...I do think that with these things fixed this book could be excellent. It could be a wonderful story between two people. A second chance at life after things had gone so wrong. I loved the characters. I loved the plot,

Great love story where the characters are in their late 30's early 40's. Very strong heroine, Sabrina over comes her husband's tragic death, raising three young kids and starting a new life for herself. One day by "chance" she meets Mike Crown, wealthy, tall, extremely good looking and too good to be true for Sabrina and her kids. There is chemistry from the first meeting and the two get to "Know One Another" for months. But Mike is hiding a big secret and feels when Sabrina finds out she won't ...more
