Hey y’all! Today I am apart of a super fun blog tour for one of my favorite authors and her new release and venture into the contemporary romance genre! Jaye Elliot (also known as Jaye L. Knight) is an amazing writer, but if you’ve been following this blog for any amount of time you already know that!😉
About the Book:
Alex Jennings is done with life. After losing her brother in Afghanistan, everything has collapsed around her. Getting laid off from her day job and failing in her art career, she has nowhere left to turn. She once had faith to believe that all things would work together for good, but that faith died with her brother. Now she just wants the pain to end.
Riley Conrad served thirteen years in the military until three bullets sent him home. After a year and a half of physical therapy and scraping together a living, all he wants is to live a simple life and perhaps even open the coffee shop he dreams about. However, the weight of failing his parents’ expectations doesn’t make it easy, and working as a bartender isn’t getting him anywhere fast.
Could a “chance” meeting between Alex and Riley set them both on the path God always intended
This book (No Chance Meeting) was a cute little romance story, I enjoyed it. I didn’t love everything about it, like I didn’t feel very connected with the characters and everything felt a little forced; but I thought it was a sweet story all in all. I enjoyed how much coffee was a major theme, that I could totally relate to. I also liked how it exposed the struggle of former military men and their families. I think that is a story that needs to be told more. So I appreciate the spotlight on that aspect. It was definitely a tangible story as well. I felt like I was just reading a modern couple’s backstory, which was kinda cute. I also liked how there were so many different and important relationships that were emphasized. I liked the friend relationship, parent and child relationship, and sibling relationship. They were all crafted well. This was a fun, easy, and yet heartfelt, deep read. Be sure to check it out and also the giveaways and blog tour schedule! You won’t want to miss it!
I give this book 3 BEAUTIFUL STARS
