Finding herself in a small town the eighteen year old finally finds a place to feel safe under the loving guidance of Lucy who owns the local diner in the town. Fast forward five years and Gypsy is now firmly established in the town but then another drastic episode sees her moving away

What an emotional ride. I have yet to read a book by Shelley and Emily that isn't an MC romance so I wasn't sure what to expect but I had some pretty high expectations. I am thrilled to say that they exceeded those very expectations. This book was so heart wrenching and full of hope. Going along Gypsy's journey to overcome her past, find a family she can call her own and the love of a real man that will treat her like the special person she is.

The story line is one that will have you absolutely

Gypsy's Chance by Shelley Springfield and Emily Minton is a darkish romance novel, a stand alone.

Meet Gypsy Rose. Shes forced to leave her home and move to a small town in Missouri.
In Macon she starts over. She meet a good man, Chance, and everythig could be peachy. But her past and their demons haunt her.

Gypsy's Chance is not for the faint of heart. Reading this book I had to put it down and take a breather. It is very intense.
I wanted so much for Gypsy to find happiness.
I loved the words, I lo

Gypsy's Chance is quite a change from the previous works of Shelley Springfield and Emily Minton. A sweet, yet intense contemporary romance, featuring Gypsy and Chance that I thoroughly enjoyed.

Gypsy escaped a horrific past, that continues to haunt her throughout the story line. She's an incredibly resilient, endearing and inspiring heroine, who doesn't recognize her own strength.

Chance is a complete gentleman. Sweet, kind and caring, he's a swoon worthy alpha hero.

I read this story and was so amazed on how well it was written and how the story just flowed from these authors. This being something completely different from these authors really put me in shock. I was over the moon in love with this story. I loved almost all the characters Kilo can rot in hell for all I care.(yea that's all I'm giving you on him).

Well, my girls have done it again! Any time Shelley and Emily come together to write, the result is always perfection!

Gypsy Rose did not have a good childhood. Her mother was a drug addicted loser who was never there for her daughter. After a brutal attack, Gypsy runs away from her hometown and never looks back. She starts over in the charming little town of Macon. It is here where she meets some amazing peo

I gave this book 4 stars!

I have read several of Shelley books, I am hugh fan of her MC series, so I knew going in that it was going to be good. What I hadn't planned was to absolutely fall in love with the characters like I did. I really need a second book of Chance, Gypsy, Adam and Jarrod. I love how her and Emily showed the raw emotions of Gypsy and how that know matter what life through her way, she brushed it off and got right back to it.

Gypsy’s Chance by Emily Minton and Shelley Springfield was an amazingly fabulous read. This book was so different than the usually books by these wonderful ladies.

I have read sassy, sexy, and just plain humor by Shelley and Emily. Now I've read serious but sweet. And I loved every second of it. I continue to be surprised and amazed at the broad range of what I read by these two and they just keep getting better and better!!

Gypsy, this poor girl has been to hell and back. My heart hurt for her immediately and just my heart! She finally finds the one thing she is looking for... a family. But another issue arises where she has to again move a little bit on

Emily Minton and Shelley Springfield they better not stop co-writing. Because, they're magic together. This is a little different books. But, just as good!

I love the writing style of these two authors and when they write together it’s incredible.
This is one of those stories that captures your heart from page one, and holds it until the last.
Gypsy’s character is one that has her own demons that haunt her, her life has been a hard road with many ruts to pull herself through. Gypsy is one tough and feisty, yet inspiring heroine. Gypsy’s journey was one I fell in lo

Gypsy's mother put her in harms way in the worse way possible. A tragic life with a mother who didn't care and never bothered to worry about her daughter she leaves that world behind. Making a stop on her trek to safety she meets a couple who sees the hurt in her. Taking her under their wing she finally knows what its like to have someone care for her and love her.

I read an ARC and this is my honest review.

A slow burn is what this story gave me because it didn't move too fast and was just a slow burn. Gypsy's life was filled with unhappiness and dark times. Until one night she had enough and left home with a purpose "to make it on her own". For five years she has lived on her own and found a friends and family with the people in the small town she settled into. Then another setback comes and she is forced to leave again and start somewhere new. In her new

Gypsy's Chance is a really good story that I enjoyed from the get go. Gypsy has suffered a lot in her life and moving to Macon is her chance to start over. She never thought it would turn into a second chance at having a family. Hank, Lucy and Jarrod bring a lot to the table and bring this story to life. A second set of circumstances causes her to leave her family behind to start over. Meeting Chance brings feelings out of her she never expected to have for a man.

Gypsy's Chance is a modern day fairy tale. It's filled with insta-love, Alpha Males and ball at the end.
Gypsy didn't have it easy but she was able to persevere throughout. She was determined to make a better life for herself. The people that she met along the way help her and become the support needed to fight through all the challenges thrown her way. I loved Hank, Luke y and Jared.

I am voluntarily reviewing this arc of this book. This book may have you crying. She meets chance by accident he offers to help her with her car and when he finds out where she is currently living he offers her a safe clean place to stay. Her male best friend is very protective of her due to when they first saw her his family took her in n stepped in to become her family. I couldn't put it down. The last part of the book will have you crying and wanting to beat someone from her past. I loved it

So much emotion!

Gypsy had to start over, not only once but twice. This was a very good quick read. Very hard to put down. There was not only one, but two love stories. No spoilers! I'm not telling the second one. This was a pretty clean read, some cursing, nothing too bad. Memories of the past were hard but not very descriptive. I loved that. Keep up the great work Shelley and Emily!

Gypsy's Chance is an amazing story that left me wanting more of Gypsy and Chance! Chance is a true gentleman and shows Gypsy that she is worth a man's love and protection. The road isn't easy and the path wasn't magically laid out for Gypsy. She didn't just easily fall with Chance into bed, she worked up to everything. It was a realistic timeframe for that type of trauma. Their connection was instant but the love built overtime even though they started the fall in the beginning. Absolutely was h ...more
