The Chance by Robyn Carr

Aug 14,20 14

With its breathtaking vistas and down-to-earth people, Thunder Point is the perfect place for FBI agent Laine Carrington to recuperate from a gunshot wound and contemplate her future. The locals embraced Laine as one of their own after she risked her life to save a young girl from a dangerous cult. Knowing her wounds go beyond the physical, Laine hopes she'll fit in for a while and find her true self in a town that feels safe. She may even learn to open her heart to others, something an undercover agent has little time to indulge.

Eric Gentry is also new to Thunder Point. Although he's a man with a dark past, he's determined to put down roots and get to know the daughter he only recently discovered. When Laine and Eric meet, their attraction is obvious to everyone. But while the law enforcement agent and the reformed criminal want to make things work, their differences may run too deep…unless they take a chance on each other and find that deep and mysterious bond that belongs to those who choose love over fear.

My Review:

I liked reading the continuing story of Laine's life. It was quite different from what I expected it to be. I also liked her relationship with Eric and how she helped change his life around. Another thing I liked was how things changed with her relationship with her dad unfortunately due to sad circumstances.
I felt bad about Justin's struggles, but admired him for his family devotion.
The only thing is, I had trouble getting through the book. It didn't grab me enough and found I was putting it down quite often. Maybe it is just time for a new genre, like suspense. I will go back to the next 2 books in the series.
