Review: Take A Chance On Me By: Jennifer Dawson

Take a Chance on Me (Something New, #1)Take a Chance on Me by Jennifer Dawson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

****** This is A First Reads, Thank You Goodreads ******
Sneaking out on her wedding isn’t the beginning of Maddie Donovan’s problems, hiking miles in her wedding shoes in the dark from a broken down car isn’t either, no, it’s the bartender that is all too hot and kind in the dive that brings the electricity to the air. Mitch Riley thought he was safe from the big city in the small town dive, that he was living and all was well, thing was, he was hiding and running from feeling alive until she came in.
From the moment Mitch saw her, she got under his skin and he wasn’t going to let her go. From moving her under his roof, to paying his friends not to work on her car for a week, he is looking to keep her. Maddie is looking at Mitch and wants so bad to no longer be good and not only begins to find a connection with him, but one that she had lost with herself long ago.
A story of two broken people that have a connection and whether they are willing to take the chance on each other. Sometimes the scariest thing to do is to love and trust another, and with their histories compounded with the histories of their families, there are a lot of hurdles in front of them.
The main characters have a great heat to them and some scenes will leave you breathless, secondary characters so well rounded that you can’t wait for them to have their own books (this is part of a Something New series), and the town of Revival that you want to move to. I don’t think that this is the last connection between Donovan’s and Riley’s (sneak peek of next novel) and I look forward to the rest of the series.
