My Review of Take A Chance On Me
Penelope Quinn is the first person her brother calls when his wife has a medical emergency but she wasn’t the last. He also called his friend Eli Price who just happened to be the guy Penelope has crossed off her forever-ever-after list. She’s attracted to Eli but refuses to date him because of his profession.
But Eli is not prepared to walk away from Penelope even though she wants him to. He’s determined to stick around until he convinces her that he’s worth taking a chance on.
I loved the chemistry between Eli and Penelope and would like to read a longer story about their relationship.
The reader is drawn immediately into the life of the characters. The moment Penelope walks through the hospital door in response to her brother’s call, you get the impression that she will do anything for her family…even take care of her baby niece and share duties with a man she wants to avoid more than anything.
Eli also shows up at the hospital at the request of his best friend, Penelope’s brother. He knows he has a lot to make up for in Penelope’s eyes but he’s willing to do what it takes to get her to consider having a relationship with him. I like how Eli made an effort to find out how he could change Penelope’s impression of him, not in a manipulative way, but because he genuinely cared about her.
This book is a good introduction to the series and gets the reader excited to begin the new Misty River series. Stay With Me will be the first full-length in the new series.
About Take a Chance on Me (Misty River Romance)
When baker Penelope Quinn steps in to help her brother’s family through a medical crisis, she’s forced into close proximity with charming Air Force fighter pilot Eli Price.
Penelope has one iron-clad dating rule—she does not date airmen. Months ago, she relaxed her rule with Eli and immediately lived to regret it. After a long deployment, he’s now back in Misty River, and, to her dismay, she finds him just as tempting as always.
Eli’s spent months thinking about funny, feisty, creative Penelope. He once leveraged his focus and drive to become a pilot, his childhood dream. Now he’s set on leveraging that same focus and drive in order to convince Penelope to give him one more chance.
