Take A Chance On Me by Jennifer Dawson - Book Review


About The Book:

Gorgeous runaway brides. . .  When Maddie Donovan runs out on her high school sweetheart moments before walking down the aisle, she ends up at a bar in the small town of Revival, Illinois, with only the wedding dress on her back, fifty dollars to her name, and her "good girl" reputation in tatters. Not ready to return to Chicago and face the music, she accepts hot bartender Mitch Riley's offer to stay at his place. But sharing such close quarters is driving Maddie insane with desire. Always drink for free. . .
Mitch thinks he's seen it all--until Maddie strides into his bar in full wedding attire and downs three shots of whiskey. Though the gorgeous knockout seems tough as nails, he also senses her vulnerability. With a troubled past of his own, Mitch has no interest in ties of any kind--yet he can't help falling for Maddie. Now he's got to find a way to convince her to give love a second chance.

My Thoughts:

Have you heard the one about the runaway bride who walks into a bar ... - sounds like the beginning of a good joke, doesn't it?  It is actually the beginning of a great book, "Take A Chance On Me," the first book in Jennifer Dawson's new "A Something New" series.

Dawson has created a wonderful small-town atmosphere to set this lively romantic series in, and combining that with personable characters and a sizzling hot romance - well, let's just say that romance fans are going to be ecstatic!  (Fair warning - the intimate love scenes are very explicit!)

I really enjoyed the interaction among the main characters, Maddie and Mitch, but the secondary cast really kept this tale moving along. I can't wait to see them reappear in stories of their own, coming soon!

If you are looking for a great book to warm up those cold winter nights - take a chance on "Take A Chance On Me" - you'll be glad you did!

About The Author:

Jennifer Dawson grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and graduated from DePaul University with a degree in psychology. She met her husband at the public library while they were studying. To this day she still maintains she was NOT checking him out. Now, over twenty years later they’re married living in a suburb right outside of Chicago with two awesome kids and a crazy dog.

Despite going through a light FM, poem writing phase in high school, Jennifer never grew up wanting to be a writer (she had more practical aspirations of being an international super spy). Then one day, suffering from boredom and disgruntled with a book she’d been reading, she decided to put pen to paper. The rest, as they say, is history. 

These days Jennifer can be found sitting behind her computer writing her next novel, chasing after her kids, keeping an ever watchful eye on her ever growing to-do list, and NOT checking out her husband.

Jennifer also writes erotic romance under the name Julia Devlin.  Visit her website at www.juliadevlin.com for more information on her books.
