Product Description

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.
- Confidence
- 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sassy, Sweet and Utterly Addictive! 12 May 2017
By B from Prisoners of Print - Published on

4.5 Stars - Jessica Prince has done it again, delivering a perfectly hilarious and seriously sweet romantic comedy with Chance and Melany’s story in Chance Encounters. After having met Chance in The Locklaine Boys series, I was anxious for more of this seemingly perfect man. If anyone deserved to fall in love and get unexpectedly swept away by a wonderful woman, it was Chance. This novel definitely didn’t disappoint and I’m thrilled to say that Chance Hoffman finally gets his happily ever after! Melany is the perfect match for this kind and charismatic man and I adored each moment of their sometimes awkward but always awesome journey. The chemistry between Melany and Chance was electric, sizzling beneath the surface and desperate to spark into something bigger and bolder. However, it was the understated and deeply important emotional connection between this couple that had me so addictive and kept me completely riveted to their story.

Melany was such a fun character and I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know every facet of this quirky, anxious and incredibly kind woman. Jessica Prince did a fantastic job unraveling her, portraying Melany’s flaws and fears with grace and sensitivity. I appreciated how genuine her insecurities felt and I found myself drawn to this heroine and connecting to her pain. There was also something so beautifully light about Melany that made me smile and left me laughing on more than one occasion. Watching her learn to embrace the awkwardness and live life through the fear filled me with an overwhelming sense of contentment.

Chance, on the other hand, was every bit the smart, charming book boyfriend I thought he’d be and then some. Admittedly, I wanted a bit more depth from this character, hoping that in finally finding his happily ever after, the reader might get to explore Chance’s past and family history in order to better understand what made this hero tick. He seemed so perfect that I wanted Chance to feel flawed and more relatable. Despite this missing piece of the puzzle, I still swooned. Chance’s role in Melany’s character growth left me a pile of mush while his unique brand of protective and possessive ensured I fell hard and irrevocably.

While Chance Encounters definitely stands on its own, I was happy to see so many familiar faces from The Locklaine Boys series. I loved how easily Chance and Melany seemed to fit within that fictional world and Jessica Prince certainly captured all of the magic and memories that went along with that unforgettable family. The storyline was fun, sexy and utterly sweet – the perfect combination of humor, heat and heart. Jessica Prince knows how to entertain and Melany’s personal journey was enough to keep me voraciously turning the pages. As sad as I am to see these characters go, I can’t wait to see what this author has in store next. Chance Encounters is the perfect example of everything Jessica Prince has to offer and Melany and Chance are absolutely worth the one-click!

Loved it. This is a stand alone, but can be considered part of a series since the Locklaine boys are in here in places. Chance and Melany have a friendship that turns into more. Of course, they both do some stupid things along the way where miscommunication is the cause of some angst. The characters are lovable. The secondary characters add to the story in a wonderful way. Very entertaining with a believable storyline. Dual point of view. No cliffhanger.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Take A Chance Stars!!!! 11 May 2017

Smitten!! Yes, I am totally smitten with Jessica Prince’s latest release, Chance Encounters. This being the first book that I have read from this author has me scrambling on what other books of Jessica that I need to get my greedy hands on. To say that I love Chance Encounters is beyond an understatement because I absolutely LOVED everything about this book. It was the book that brought a genuine smile to my face and had me wishing for my very own Chance Hoffman.

Melany Fitzgerald has a five year crush on a co-worker. The problem is that co-worker hasn’t noticed at all. He practically doesn’t even know her name. Melany is what you could consider that sexy woman who has an adorable awkward and nerdy personality. She hides behind clothes that does nothing for her figure and also lack of self-esteem has always been her downfall since she grew up being made fun of and lacked love and support from her mother.

So when Melany meets her boss fiancee’s friend, Chance Hoffman, they easily started a friendship. It was easy for Melany to be around Chance as he always made her feel at ease. And so when Melany asked Chance to help her get the attention of her crush, operation Melany transformation began.

"It was bliss. Being with Melany was pure, unadulterated bliss. I knew right then, without a doubt in my mind, that I was in love with Melany Fitzgerald. And I’d be damned if I was going to lose her.”

As Chance helped Melany, he began to start have feelings for her. His swan transformed to the most beautiful swan and she didn’t even know it. Slowly, he helped her gained confidence and showed her real honest love. It was only a matter of time for Melany to notice Chance and forget her crush. And so when Chance and Melany decided to cross that invisible line of friends with benefits, what happens when they both realized that they want the same thing. More than friendship. But what happens when Melany’s crush finally starts noticing her? Will Chance even have a chance to compete with Melany’s crush that she had for five years? Or will Melany discover that happily ever after does exist and it’s about time she takes a chance on Chance?

Chance Encounters is an absolute gem of a read. It was sweet, playful, adorably awkward and yet had that innocence of love that I found endearing. Melany is one of those heroines that you can’t helped but love. Although she had that innocence about her, she still had the fiery backbone. And as for Chance Hoffman, all there is left for me to say is Sigh….I love him. Seriously, I love his character so much. He saw Melany for who she was. He saw her beauty when no one saw it. So if you are looking for a story that was fun and sexy then I highly recommend you to read this book. Take a chance with this author and book because I most definitely did and loved every moment of it.

I'd like to think that I connect in some way with every book I read. But there are some that have more of an impact on me for whatever reason and Chance Encounters is one of these books. From the very first page I had an immediate ache in my heart for Melany. Why you ask? Well, just like Melany, my growing up years had a tremendous impact on my self esteem and self worth and like our Heroine in this book, I was never good at flirting, I wore clothes that let me hide who I really was and I was full of inane facts. You know kind of like Norm on Cheers!

I totally and completely felt the emotional pull that Melany felt when she first encounter who she thought was her "one" and she became a fidgety mess. Enter Chance Hoffman the man who will literally turn her world upside down and help Melany discover who she really intelligent, savvy and beautiful woman that just needed a little help finding her inner vixen. I had someone like this in my life and because of this person, I'm the confident woman I am today. But I digress...

When Melany asked Chance to help her become more confident, I thought to myself, oh girl, your life will never be the same! And don't you just know that their first outing set the tone for what's to come in Melany changing to get Logan. He thinks she can get someone much better, but he agreed to help...

"He didn't deserve her. But that wasn't my call. Melany was determined to get his attention, and it wasn't my place to try and make see things differently. Even if I thought she could do so much better."

Gotta appreciate a man who stays true to his word don't you? Well this sets us up for a book filled with laughs, emotional tugs at our heart, passionate, toe curling, steam up the mirrors sex, for "practice" of course and a story that made my heart believe in finding your soulmate.

The more I read the more I was cheering for Melany to see what was standing right in front of her a man that worships the ground she walks on but doesn't want to force her to feel anything for him if it's not her true feelings. But that doesn't stop him from niggling his way into her heart. Along the way we get the rest of the crew that quickly becomes enamored with Melany too. I LOVED this so much. It's like the best of all my Jessica Prince worlds coming together!

In the end, this book has become a book that is my favorite of all the books in this series and possibly of all the books this amazing author has given us and as happy as I was when the HEA does happen, my heart is a little sad that we may not get to see my favorite people again. But I'll still be first in line to 1-click the next book from Ms. Prince because she is absolutely in my top five of -go-to authors!
