TAKE A CHANCE ON ME
by Jaqueline Snowe
GENRE: Contemporary Sports Romance
Kate Zell and Brody Carlson have been best friends since elementary school. Their relationship had always been easy. Both of them loyal to a fault, they had been there for each other through everything: heartbreaks, hangovers, and tragedy. So when Kate needs a place to stay for three months, Brody doesn’t think twice about agreeing. After all, they had known each other forever. Would could go wrong living with his closest and oldest friend?
Apparently, everything. Three months in a small apartment becomes more than complicated. Brody shouldn’t be attracted to his dorky best friend…he most definitely shouldn’t. That would be absurd. She’s a relationship girl and he’s more a one-night-sans-clothes kind of guy.
One drunken dare of strip poker changes everything. Suddenly, two people with too much to lose play a dangerous game. The unapologetic playboy and the girl-next-door have a choice to make, if only their pasts didn’t keep getting in the way of their future.
His biceps must’ve outweighed mine three to one—did he double in size? His shorts displayed strong, ripped legs that would seem too big if they belonged to anyone else. And what’s with that hair style? Buzzed on the sides with a wavy, longer part on top? Anyone else, it would look stupid. But on him, cool. I shook my head, my mood already better. Shit, I’d missed the guy. He saw me, and his face lit up.
“KZ! Get in here!”
He squeezed me tight, the air leaving my body for a quick second. I laughed into his chest, inhaling a subtle, masculine scent, and winced, hoping the lavender deodorant didn’t fail me. “Brody, you’re going to break me.”
“Deal with it. I missed you, punk. It’s good to see you.” His tall frame made me feel about two feet tall. I thought about pinching his side to have him stop, but he set me down.
I pushed him away, my grin taking up half my face. “Hey, stand there for a second and look pretty.”
Ah, a look I had seen many, many times. Whenever I confused him or had an asinine idea, those brows joined as one and looked like a caterpillar.
“Just do it.” I pulled out the picture I’d ripped from the magazine. “I’m comparing before I get your autograph and sell it with the description of true to life. Hey, don’t judge me. I have student debt. I need the moolah.”
He glanced at the picture I held up. “God, you’re a dick.”

I admit, I thought this would be just another rom-com, but it's a Terrific rom-com, with lots of witty dialogue and snappy come-backs, angst and dreams - and characters you really get behind and root for. A sweet and sassy friends to lovers romance - Kate and Brody are opposites in everything, but they know each other well. At least, they think they do. Apparently, there are hidden depths to everyone. Kate is a smart, funny, yet troubled young woman. After a disaster break-up, and after landing a new job, she calls on her old buddy Brody to help her out. Brody is a jock, loyal, sweet, and as Kate is about to discover, a very sexy guy. How can she resist? But Brody has demons of his own - notably his brother, who committed suicide. He also has a troubled relationship with sex. He's moody and stormy, contrary to Kate's sun-shine optimism. Decidedly, the author doesn't make things easy for these two, and this reader was spinning the pages to find out what happened next! So during this long, hot summer - grab a cool drink, a comfy chair in the shade, and enjoy!
