    2. This review was originally posted on un Conventional BookviewsA Fighting Chance is a very sweet, and hot, second chance at love romance, and I really enjoy the characters as well as their journey I found the ending to be a little cheesy, though, and would have liked to spend a little bit time with Del and Brendan.I loved how self assured and sassy Del was from the beginning of Fighting Chance She s at a casino hotel, where she s arrived before her girlfriends for a weekend of fun before her fri [...]

    3. A Fighting Chance is an adult contemporary romance novella written by Shannon Stacey I first experienced Ms Stacey s fun writing through her down to earth Kowalski Family series I love her characters and humor in that series and I just loved her writing plain and simple Since then, Ms Stacey has broadened her horizons through series themed with firemen, football players, and now MMA fighters These have become pretty popular themes in romance and I can respect her decision to jump on the bandwago [...]

    5. 4 starsA Fighting Chance was a sweet, heartwarming and entertaining second chance love story, I really enjoyed it.Both Adeline and Brendan were likable and relatable characters You felt their connection from the first moment they come face to face again after so many years apart They had amazing chemistry and I had no doubt these two belonged together Thank you to Carina Press via NetGalley for the advance copy in exchange for my honest thoughts.

Reviewed for Where the Night Kind RoamIt was a cute short novella I love rekindled love it s one of my favorite themes I kind of wish Del had given him a bit hell but the flipping off his life sized poster was pretty amusing Brendan was a total sweetheart tho and admitted to his F up and said it was the biggest mistake he ever made I can respect that and he made it hard for her to stay mad long I would have also liked a bit of their past I know how they met but that was about it Overall, it wa [...]

    10. I m not a big fan of second chance romances, but this one was cute and I was rooting for them from the start I did like that Del was a bit salty at the start, loved her flipping off Brendan s picture and that he saw that I was happy that Brendan wasn t stuck on himself but really humble and reached for Del the instant he was able to, even if it was just for a cup of coffee.They had such a history it was nice for them to really talk about the past and why Brendan walked away I think Del was quite [...]

    11. I love Shannon Stacey because her stories are so familiar because they re set where I live, in northern New England , and so low drama Real people working through real conflicts, in a way that is refreshingly, well, real However, Fighting Chance is not Stacey s best I didn t connect with this one at all, probably because it s novella length and just too short to feel invested in the characters Del goes to a casino for a bachelorette weekend with her girlfriends, and meets up with The One Who Got [...]

    12. Truthfully I m pretty shocked how much I loved this one Usually these short novellas leave me wanting to know the characters better but this one gave me everything I loved how they dealt with the past that was painful and ugly without all the angst and bitterness some books have This story is sweet and sexy and will definitely leave you smiling I highly recommend it.

    15. copy courtesy of Netgalley2.5 STARSthis is a short second chance at love romance this story was probably too short to really get a chance at knowing or really liking the characters Del and Brennan were in love but he broke her heart because he let her family convince him that they were too different and she would be better off without him They meet up 6 years later and pretty much everything is erased I thought Del folded too easy she was correct when she said that he loved her enough to leave b [...]

    17. I loved Brendan and his smart a ery, Brendan arched an eyebrow at her There s probably a standard for how many times you ve been naked with a person before you stop asking if you can ask a personal question I don t know what it is, but I m pretty sure we ve blown by it I love second chance romance books and Del and Bendan had quite the chemistry.

    28. My low rating reflects mostly a consumer complaint issue than literary one As a NetGalley reviewer, I m all about details I always research as many facts about a book as possible before purchasing a book Top of my list is always page length I want to know upfront how much of the author s time talent I m getting with each purchase One of my pet peeves are short novellas that are promoted as full length books There is absolutely no mention this is a very short novella that ends 65% The remaining p [...]
