There are three kinds of nerdy women in the world.
– The Sexy Nerd
– The Confident Nerd; and
– The So-Socially-Awkward-it’s-Painful-to-Watch Nerd.
You can probably guess which one I am. After witnessing me making a fool of myself, Chance Hoffman decided to take pity on me. He’s smart, sexy, charming, and totally out of my league… and for some unexplainable reason, he wants to help me. Who am I to say no? Besides, I need all the assistance I can get.
There are three things that make a woman irresistible.
– A Wicked Sense of Humor; and
– A Killer Rack.
Melany Fitzgerald had none of those things. Or so I thought… until I really got to know her. She’s the total package and she doesn’t even realize it. Now I’m stuck with the uncomfortable task of helping her land another guy, all the while trying to ignore the fact that I’m starting to fall for her.
She thinks she’s an ugly duckling and wants to become a swan. All I want is her. And I’m not giving up without a fight.
Jessica Prince, Chance Encounters is absolutely fantastic. I have never read any of her prior books but I will after this! Apparently, there are two books prior to this that Chance is in, however, I did not read those prior to this and don’t feel you it’s necessary to follow this story. I will be going back to read them though!!
Chance Hoffman and Melany Fitzgerald are the last two people in the world who you would think would become friends.
Chance is a confident lawyer who has that smile that makes women swoon. He is a kind, generous, sexy hard working man who is just having fun. Chance has had his fair share of heartbreak and gets attached to woman very easily. Being burned twice, he is just going through life until he finds his happily ever after.
Melany is so very socially awkward it’s borderline uncomfortable. She is so inexperienced and has been hurt by some many so called “friends” and a mother who is a drunk, she has closed herself off from everyone. Until Chance offers to help her come out of her shell and get the guy she’s been crushing on for five years.
I cannot say enough about this book. Chance Encounters is so much more than a friends to lovers story. It is about inner beauty and self-worth and how the exterior of a person doesn’t matter half as much as what is inside of them. And how when you least expect it, love can come in all shapes and sizes.
I enjoyed how Melany and Chance balanced each other out. Chance was constantly trying to pull her out of her shell and Melany was only really comfortable with Chance. Their friendship came effortlessly while their attraction to each other grew over time. Once Chance realized what he had in Melany, how could he ever let her go? Could their friendship grow into something more or will Melany finally get the guy she’s been wanting for five long years?
This book was outstanding. It touched on serious subjects yet was fun and light. I was completely enamored with it and read it in one evening. Now to go back and read more of Jessica Prince!!
I give Chance Encounters by Jessica Prince 5 stars!
