Our Chance by Margaret McHeyzer
Series: Hope River #2
Genres: Friends-to-Lovers Romance, Small Town Romance
We started out as friends.
But as time goes by I find myself developing a crush on Jake.
I’m fairly certain our attraction is mutual. When we’re together we’re dynamic, our chemistry is undeniable. But something is stopping us from acting on our feelings.
Resisting him is nearly impossible.
The problem is, I’m running from my past.
Jake’s the Sheriff of Hope River, and it wouldn’t be hard for him to uncover my secrets.
Do I risk telling him the truth, or do I run again?

Jake and Elle were both in book one but in this one we get more of their story. We get to see a different side of them and I could not love them more. One thing I will say is that Margaret McHeyzer knows how to set up her characters well. I liked this pair in book one but I love them in book two.
Elle is running from her past and although she is attracted to Jake she isn’t sure that is enough to risk him finding out about her past. Jake isn’t a dummy though because he knows something is going on. Jake also has his own secrets that control so much of his life.
This was a much more emotional read than the first book. I cried through so much of this book but loved it all the same. I did enjoy this a little more than the first one because of the suspense element that was part of the story. So far I would say that Jake and Elle are my favorite couple.
Gran is as always a wonderful character and I honestly am on the edge of my seat waiting for book three.
