Product Description

Tom Carter
Kicked out at fifteen for being gay, Tom survived by selling his body on the streets. Four years later, Tom, now nineteen, doesn’t know how long he can continue living this life.
One night while out working, Tom sees a face from his past, one he had long forgotten. One he had used to fantasise about.
Seb Banks
Afraid of the reaction he will receive, Tom runs away hoping never to see him again. But Seb had other ideas.

Sebastian Banks
At twenty-five, Seb’s life is going exactly the way he had wanted. Having worked hard at University, Seb has been offered a permanent contract at a local solicitor.
While driving to a friend’s house to celebrate, Seb is shocked to find Tom, someone he hasn’t seen in years, on the streets, selling himself.
Feeling an overwhelming need to help Tom, Seb tracks him down and offers him a way out.
Is Tom willing to take a chance on Seb and accept his offer, or will his distrust of everyone from his past cause him to push Seb away?
Includes a sneak peek of book two, New Beginnings, Ben and Geoff's story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely Take a Chance on this book! 23 April 2017

Definitely Take a Chance on this book!

At 15 years old Tom was kicked out for being gay. For four years he lived and survived the only way he could- being a rent boy. Seb just got a full time position at the company he worked at and is going places when he accidentally drives by a face from the past - Tom. Both guys had feelings for each other before Tom was kicked out, his shameful secret buried and lied about. They can't stop thinking about each other and Tom has to learn to open his heart to love, trust, and loyalty.

This is a good story and the characters are great. I look forward to the next story!

I gave it 5 stars. I thought it was thought provoking. I am so glad that Seb was there for Tom. I am glad, too, that he's invited them to stay. All of them deserve so much out of the life that they were handed. So thank you Megs for a beautiful story. I look forward to the next one.
3.0 out of 5 stars Love Mends old Wounds 8 April 2017
By angelswithattitudebookreviews - Published on Amazon.com
I have to say that this was a very touching read for us.This is the kind of story that tugs at the heart strings as it did ours.I enjoyed the main characters Seb and Tom and getting to know them.You definably felt the pain that Tom was experiencing along with his betrayals and loneliness he felt.It broke my heart and I grieved right along with him.

I always pick a favorite character in a story and mine is going to be Seb.I found him to be sweet,kind,understanding,smart,
determined and non judgmental along with having a very big heart.I loved how he kept trying to help Tom and never gave up .Seb just wanted to help him get out of a really bad situation even though Tom fought him at every turn yet he never gave up thinking him a loss cause.I admired him for that. Seb was just a all around nice generous loving soul that cared about Tom and those of his friends and you could not help but love him for the kind soul he was.

Tom was more of a complicated character that had his up and downs but you had to love how strong he was in order to survive the things that he was forced to do.I loved how protective he was of his friends.I love how he was brave enough to put his trust in Seb all the while being scared out of his mind of getting hurt and being disappointed yet again.I loved seeing the broken spirit of this man gradually come back to life.

I enjoyed this heart wrenching story that involved parents who were suppose to love and protect their children yet turned their backs on them all because they didn't like their life style choices.A touching emotional story that had a couple following their hearts no matter what the consequences.I love when your able to find your soul mate and they are the one who helps you heal the parts of you that are broken just by believing in you as well as loving you.Makes your heart feel good.

We are giving this story 3 stars as I felt that there were some loose ends that should have been tied up when it came to Adam and Ben.I also missed that there was not an epilogue I just felt that the story just abruptly ended.I would have loved to have seen a glimpse into the future of this cast of characters and if any of them had found their happy ever afters...

5.0 out of 5 stars An awesome read 12 April 2017
By Jim Dunaway - Published on Amazon.com
Wow. Just wow. What some people have to do to survive when they've lost everything is heart-wrenching. Some turn to prostitution, some alcohol, some drugs, and for some, all three or a combination of the three. Some may be in their early teens. Living on the streets, with little hope, where trust is almost non-existent, is fraught with danger.

Ms. Pritchard gives us a grim and very realistic glimpse into the lives of these people, some running away from intolerable living situations, and some, thrown out of their homes for their sexuality or teen pregnancy. Your heart will break for these kids.

Case in point: Tom. A good kid, thrown out by his parents at fifteen. It's heartbreaking to learn that in addition to his family, he loses all his friends. Living on the streets he turns to the only thing he can to survive: prostitution.

Ms. Pritchard's portrayal of Tom is superb. Readers can feel is anger at his parents, his best friend and his best friend's parents, as well as his despair at his situation and his desire to get out of his situation even though it seems hopeless. You can't help but feel admiration for the way he looks out for the four other male prostitutes he lives with, doing everything he can to make sure they're safe when working. Despite everything, he's still a good kid at heart.

Enter Sebastian, older brother to Tom's best friend. One can only imagine his shock when he finds Tom working the streets. His determination to help Tom and his frustration at Tom's reluctance to accept help him out of his situation. It's easy to understand why Tom doesn't want to trust Seb, wondering what kind of sexual favors Seb wants in return for his help.

Can Seb help Tom? Will Tom accept Seb's help? Read the awesomeness that is Take A Chance and find out for yourself. You won't be disappointed.

I've read several "Pretty Woman"-type stories and this is undoubtedly the best.

In accordance with Amazon policies, I state that I was provided an advanced reader copy of Take a Chance for free in exchange for a fair and honest review.
4.0 out of 5 stars Megs Pritchard 4 unexpected stars The first book i read by Megs Pritchard was beautifully written. It was real 14 April 2017
By Kathleen Rivest - Published on Amazon.com
Title: Take A Chance
Author: Megs Pritchard

4 unexpected stars

The first book i read by Megs Pritchard was beautifully written. It was real, sorrowful and so wrong in how two men who started their 'friendship' on the worst of terms and then finally letting their feelings come through to make things right again. It's the kind of story that touched me, so when i heard that she was coming out with a new novel, Take A Chance, i knew i really wanted to find out what she'd do with her characters. Let's face it, that cover is beautiful (which was another reason why i had to get my hands on it, lol). I don't know how many times my heart broke when i read Tom and Seb's story. So completely different from what i would have expected, Take A Chance is exactly that - the opportunity for Tom to make his life better after Seb finds him on the street and tracks him down to offer something better than what he's known for the last four years.

4 breath taking dreams

Just like the first novel i read by Megs Pritchard, it was a beautiful story of second chances and of trusting someone else that what they're offering comes without any strings. I enjoyed it and liked how there wasn't an instant love aspect that i see too often (not that i don't enjoy them, because i do). The obstacles they went through and all they had to overcome felt real and for that, it made it more special. I do like the stories that Megs Pritchard writes since i can always see them in my mind's eye and i look forward to reading more from her in the future!
