Title: Taking A Chance
Author: A. Catherine Noon & Rachel Wilder
Publisher: Torquere Press
Characters: Jay, Chance
Sub-Genre: Contemporary, Erotic Romance
Doctor Jacob Davison has outgrown the hookups of his younger days and wants to settle down. When he’s abandoned by the side of the road, a leather-clad stranger stops and offers him a ride. Chance Renton is different from anyone Jay’s ever met. He’s caring and helpful, yet cynical and world-weary.
From the first moment of their shared motorcycle ride, an attraction begins to simmer between them. Between Jay’s ex-boyfriend showing up and the misconceptions they have about each other, does this relationship have a chance?
I don’t normally pay attention to editing issues, as they are the bane of even the best publishers, but here I couldn’t ignore it. Not when the main character’s name changed every other page from Chance to Chase and back again. Ouch….
Overlooking that failing, this is a quite good erotic little tale. Jay and Chance are an explosive combination, with plenty of hot sex to satisfy even the neediest reader. Pun intended. This is straightforward erotica, with most all of the talking done between the sheets.
I liked the story for what it was, and recommend it for those seeking erotic quickies. We should all be this lucky with rebound relationships!
