I'm sure a lot of readers and even writers would agree that there's a book and a genre for every reader. And that's how it should be. So, if you are a reader who loves to pick up a book that will keep you turning from one page to the next, then you're totally going to enjoy this book. If you are a reader who like their romantic leads tall, strong, handsome, and utterly in charge, (dare I say an Alpha?), then you're going to enjoy this book. If you love to read about sassy, spunky, driven female ...more

This book was awesome! It had a little bit of everything. There was action, drama, romance, sex, and characters that were funny enough to make you laugh out loud at their shenanigans. The first book in the Chance Series, this story follows Jasmine Chance, a student finishing up her final year in college before heading out into the business world. She finds herself getting tangled up in the life of Drew Rodd. He's young, rich, handsome, and ready to completely dedicate himself to Jasmine, but som ...more

For a new to me author, I loved the book. I was drawn in from the very beginning and really enjoyed the way that the story developed. I was glad we got a glimpse into Jasmine's history, it helped to explain some issues that arise with the story. A very well thought out and plotted story, I would highly suggest this story.

Wonderfully written storyline that hooked me right from the first page and the characters were so well developed that I felt like I was peeking through a window watching as the story unfolded between the characters! This was the first book that I read from this author and it definitely will not be the last!

5 Star Read!!

I absolutely love that this book captures your attention from the beginning until the end. I literally read this book in one day. Sometimes you have to take chances and try new things in life; don't let something that happened to you in the past stop you from finding love in the future.

Great start

This was a great start to a new series for me. It was a little slow at times and a little predictable but it didn't detract from the story.

This book had me hooked from chapter 1. Based on the first few pages, I thought it would take a totally different direction than it did, but I was pleasantly surprised. Not only was it sexy, but I found myself able to relate to the characters in a few different ways. 5 stars!

Sexy!

Drew is so suave! I'm going for more than thoughtful, is sexy as hell! Love this couple and the love that is growing between them. So worried about Jasmine's past, and will it allow her to live. Drew will be there for her every step of the way. Can't wait to five into book 2, to find out what happens. Great read! 👍

Drew, aka Andrew, Rod meets Jasmine Chance and there is an instant attraction that simmers to a boil extremely quickly.

Oh my I really like Victoria, she is a straight shooter saying it just as it is, no messing around but it’s the way she says it that’s so great. She’s hilarious! Much of the humour in this book is through the banter between characters and Victoria’s conversations are often good. Chantal is good value too, very blunt but I like her honesty and she is so supportive as a friend.

The Book Junkie Reads . . .
I start with saying this was a NA romance that had drama, intensity, and real life happenings while trying to fall in love, stay in love and grow in love. Throughout the first installment you want so much for Drew and Jasmine to fight. To keep fighting for what they were building with each other. The characters were rich and strong. Life's dramas, obstacles, and challenges. J. Bliss brought to life a couple that struggled to make it work and the dilemma of where, how to go from where they were. ...more

3.5 Stars
Drew wants to be his own person, to not be lumped in and viewed just like his father, destructive. No matter what he does, he can't seem to avoid his father, always being dragged down due to not only the parental hold he has on him, but his father's ability to manipulate.

Jasmine's pain is more physical, and why that in no way negates what Drew has lived and dealt with, her scars are both internal and external. She did everything she could to get away and never looked back. She strives t

Author J. Bliss has grabbed my attention from page one in this awesome story. Filled with passion, heat, regrets and past hurts, Jasmine is afraid to take a chance with Andrew, "Drew". A sexy and romantic billionaire, Drew sets his sights on Jasmine and regardless of her past, he wants to help heal her wounds. Will she let go and let Drew take her heart and body, or will she run, afraid of giving life a second chance? I highly recommend this book to anyone that seeks an edge of your seat read!

So disappointing smh

I am really at a loss of words right now. I somehow made it to chapter 4 / 15% through the book and just couldn’t take it anymore. Book cover = 5 stars. Character development = 1 star. Dialogue = 1 star. I don’t know what else to say, it was that bad. From page 1, I found myself confused as to who was even talking. Felt like it was written by a teenager, trying their hand at adult romance. What a waste!

A Must read.

Omg this is a very hot, steamy, make you wanna find your own Romel, Drew kind of story. Can't wait to read the next one. J. Bliss is one hell of a author. The passion in this story will have you on a wild roller coaster ride. Please if you haven't read it yet take a chance now and start. You won't regret it.

OMG, Its just an excellent book... how gives you background on the main characters and how they all became bonded with the most important people ( friends ) in their day to day lives is what makes is but such a good book...

Not a Chance

It took a minute to get into the story and the author's style. The story had many nuances and kept the story going. The chemistry was off for me, they did not totally connect chemistry-wise. The story was good otherwise.
