ARC Review:- Chance Encounters by Jessica Prince
- 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.
- 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.
Chance encounters is a complete package. It's a fun and sweet read with the right amount oh hotness in it.
This is the type of book that leaves you with happy thoughts and positive vibes. This book has a miraculous mood changing ability. Chance encounters was like a stress reliever for me, I had a bad day but after reading this book all of my stress just vanished.
Though the plot was not very unique yet the story had a unique streak about it. The writing style was very effluent and consistent and the characters were just adorable and lovable making the story much more lively to read.
I was the damsel in distress, and he was my handsome knight in shining armor.
So the story centers around Chance and Melany. Melany is a shy and awkward. She has a special talent of making every situation awkward. But she has a secret. She is crushing on a guy from the past five years and now she wants him to notice her. Enters chance, a guy who radiates confidence. A chance encounter between Melany and chance on an engagement party turns their life upside down. After a string of even taking place, Melany somehow finds herself asking chance to help her landing the man of her dreams. chance is intrigued by the sweet yet shy girl. He sees the funny, confident girl behind all the baggy clothes and awkwardness and makes it his mission to help her in finding herself.
With passing time their friendship blooms and the line between the friends and lovers blurs making their relationship a bit more complicated and turning them into friends with benefits.
But what will happen when the feelings starts mixing up with their arrangement thereby giving rise to misunderstandings.
I adored the characters especially chance. I assumed him to be a a cold-hearted manwhore/player as in most of the romances but he was a complete sweetheart, a guy who believes in love. Thins made the story a lot more lovable.
So in a nutshell this is a must read...I totally recommend this. Chance encounters has made its place on my favorites list and Chance has success landed up a place on my book boyfriends list.
