Start your review of Chance (Graphene, #1)
Smart, witty, shockingly entertaining. A short, quick read full of high octane fun.

Daniel is a risk analyst at an insurance company. He lives a life of rigid schedule. It could be called robotic if not for the occasional pang of loneliness.

Nathan is a college student working through school as a parcel delivery man.

Neither lead very exciting lives until they accidentally run into each other and into an unforseen situation that sets them on the run from men determined to catch them.

Let the fun beg

A Joyfully Jay review.

3.75 stars

Chance is a really fun, high energy story that I enjoyed quite a bit. It is a shorter book, but it packs quite a lot into a few pages, taking us on a whirlwind ride that kept me entertained throughout.

The book opens with us seeing a regular day in Daniel’s life. This guy is about as regimented as it is possible to be and he thinks through every decision to all possible ramifications before taking any action. He is adorably over the top (the whole story is laced w
3.5 Stars- A packed novella with the promise for more

I picked up this novella in hopes for something a bit different and Chance certainly offered that. A shorter read that covered a lot of action and story in a relatively brief period, Chance detailed the exciting, peculiar events of what started out as another ordinary day for risk analyzer, Daniel, and courier, Nathan.

I’m always wary about complex plots in a novella, but Chance included sufficient details to keep me satisfied and engaged. Add

I don't quite know what it was about this book, but I was really captivated by it. Daniel was a character driven by (what it seemed to me) a lot of OCD and fear of things not falling into the specific routine he imagines. He likes things just-so, and doesn't seem to interact with people much. When he sees an attractive man on the subway after his morning's routine has already gone a little off schedule, he finds himself wanting to put himself out there. Of course, nothing is as simple as it shou ...more

Chance is the story of Daniel a tightly wound man with a strictly scheduled life that he loves to live by. That is until the day that he runs into Nathan and the race is on from there in this story of chases intrigue and Chance and how all of those things can change a life in ways one would never have imagined! not only did I love Da

Overall, 2 stars out of 5.

This novel was a struggle to read. Especially at the beginning, I would have to re-read each chapter because I could not absorb myself into the book. It seemed that the language was lacking, the characters were rather uninteresting (especially the main character, Daniel), the romance was lacking, the small details were off and very unrealistic and the book overall was just boring. When it nears the end, it improves slightly, but it was very difficult to get past the fir
