The Chance by Robyn Carr


The Chance: Book 4 of Thunder Point series

Synopsis:

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.

Review:

The Chance was a really sweet, nice love story. It was just really...I can't figure out what I want to say. I just felt really good at the end. It was so nice and easy and not a lot of drama and just a really great read. A really clean romance which was nice. It seems like most books you have lots of drama at the end, but this really didn't. Yes there were some issues that had to be worked through, but it was just a nice read. It made me smile.

Laine and Eric are both new to town. Eric grew up in Thunder Point, but he left his then pregnant girlfriend and got into some trouble with the law. He didn't know he had a daughter, and in the last book when he did find out he did start to have a relationship with her. He moved back to town at the end of the last book to be closer to his daughter.

Lanie is an FBI agent who was also in the last book briefly. She was in the compound where Devon had been living undercover. She was trying to help the women and children escape. Since the shoot out at the end of the last book she has been having some issues sleeping and moving on. She takes a leave of absence and settles in Thunder Point for a year of relaxation. She needs to figure out if she wants to continue working for the FBI or what she wants to do now.

When Lanie and Eric meet they are both interested in each other. Eric doesn't really think he is good enough for her so he is kind of shy about it. Lanie finally takes charge and they start dating. They do have some ups and downs, but they are so sweet together. It is obvious that they both care about the other and they are both great people. Yes, Eric has a dark past, but he has learned from it and is a better person because of it. They help each other grow and become better people.

Lanie does have some family issues that need her attention later in the book. Since her family lives on the other side of the country this causes strain on her and Eric's relationship. Not drama, just makes them miss the other person. Eric is so supportive and knows that this is what Lanie needs to do. They both just try and figure out a way to make their situation work and it was great to read. I loved how supportive Eric always was and how he understood and didn't get all crazy about what happened.

There is also a second story in this book, the story of Ray Anne and Al. Ray Anne has been in all of the other books I believe, but she was never a main character. She seems like a bit of a flirt and I always pictured her as wearing clothing that is too young for her. I never really cared much for her, but she was a good secondary storyline in this book. Al has just rolled into town and is helping Eric at his shop. They are both attracted to each other and they start dating. Ray Anne is not known to be lucky in love. She has been married numerous times before, but with Al it is different. Al, on the other hand, doesn't stay in one place for long. He goes wherever he wants when things start getting to be too much. He has a great storyline with Justin and his brothers and it is just really sweet. Al doesn't think he can help the boys, but he does in his own way. Yes, Al messes up towards the end, but he ends up making everything right. Really a great secondary plot line.

Overall the book was a really nice read. You don't see too much of the other characters from prior books in this one. They are there, but there is not as much story with them in it as prior books have had. It was a really great read and I am excited for the next book.

Rating: 4.5/5
