Madelyn Stewart knows how to have fun, no matter what her ex-husband claims, but between working two jobs and taking care of her five-year-old son, opportunities for fun are few and far between. So when she is given tickets to take her son to see a live taping of the MyHeartChannel show Take a Chance, they go, even though it means she’ll have to stay up all night to turn in her latest article on time. To her shock, the daredevil star, Chance Risk, is none other than Graham Sawyer, the quiet accounting major she’d dated in college—someone she’d cowardly broken up with by note and hoped to never see again. When she makes a major mistake on her article, she has to swallow her embarrassment and reach out to Chance for an exclusive or risk losing her job.

Chance Risk doesn’t talk to reporters. Not after the way he’s seen them destroy his brother’s marriage and career. But Take a Chance is starting to lose viewers, he’s desperate. Despite his better judgement, when Madelyn reaches out, he can’t resist the opening to figure out why she broke his heart eight years before. His only condition: she has to come to three filming locations with him and his crew to get a real sense of what the show is about.

Swept up in adventure, they start to feel the chemistry from college rekindling. But the reason Madelyn left eight years before still looms between them. If Chance can’t convince Madelyn to take a chance on love, she’ll walk away again. This time forever.  
My Review: 4 Stars

I love the idea of this MyHeartChannel. It reminds me of a cross between an HGTV show and a YouTube channel. Chance (aka Graham) is a major risk taker, which completely opposite of me (and Madelyn). 

I love the message of following your dreams and living up to your potential that's presented in this story. It's kind of funny how opposite Chance and Madelyn's family lives are--one wants to be needed and the other one has no desire to need anyone at all. Learning to give and take to meet the needs of the other person is an important aspect of a relationship. They are completely opposite in so many ways, yet they complement each other so well.

The spark is alive and well in this romance and it's that attraction that really helps this couple individually overcome their challenges. I loved their connection and interactions, especially as they worked on their issues.

This is such a sweet story and I'll be looking for more of these MyHeartChannel books.

Content: mild romance; mild moments of peril
