Taking Chances by Loni Flowers

                   Taking Chances by Loni Flowers 

 About the book

At age twenty-three, Alex has had a hard life. His parents died when he was quite young, leaving his grandparents to raise him. Right before his high school graduation, his grandparents passed on too, leaving him all alone. After losing everyone he's ever loved, Alex turns to the streets in a self-destructive pattern until he finally ends up in Springhill, where he tries to make a new life for himself.

Clair’s childhood was normal until age thirteen, when her father left the family and she never heard from him again. Consequently, her mother went into a deep depression, forcing Clair to grow up quickly. After finishing high school, Clair’s heartache over her father’s absence as well as her unbearable mother drive her to strike out on her own. But having nowhere to go and no family to speak of, Clair wanders aimlessly from town to town, homeless, and without purpose. Looking for work wherever she goes and living hand to mouth on the streets is tough, Clair discovers, but living with her mother is worse.

Now twenty-one years old, Clair has found her way to the last place she and her family took their final vacation as a family--Springhill. While in town, she crosses paths with Alex and their ensuing relationship grows faster than expected. Soon Clair wonders if coming back to Springhill and meeting Alex was the best decision or the worst decision she ever made.


I’m more of a paranormal book reader 90% of the time but WOW I loved this book I started this book in the morning and I finished the same night all 367 pages. I could not bring myself to put this book down. What a beautiful story, heartfelt and real, you can really picture yourself right there with the characters and feel what they feel. I laughed and cried a few times, the things Clair & Alex have been though and how strong they are and willing to make things better amazes me. Also their strength to learn to trust and love again and the way they care for one another and the women who saved them both in ways you can’t imagine. I really can’t say enough good things about Taking Chances Loni did one hell of a job writing this book.  I highly recommend this book if you are a romance fan!
