ARC Review:- Chance Encounters by Jessica Prince


There are three kinds of nerdy women in the world.
- The Sexy Nerd
- The Confident Nerd; and
- The So-Socially-Awkward-it’s-Painful-to-Watch Nerd.

You can probably guess which one I am. After witnessing me making a fool of myself, Chance Hoffman decided to take pity on me. He’s smart, sexy, charming, and totally out of my league… and for some unexplainable reason, he wants to help me. Who am I to say no? Besides, I need all the assistance I can get.

There are three things that make a woman irresistible.
- Confidence
- A Wicked Sense of Humor; and
- A Killer Rack.

Melany Fitzgerald had none of those things. Or so I thought… until I really got to know her. She’s the total package and she doesn’t even realize it. Now I’m stuck with the uncomfortable task of helping her land another guy, all the while trying to ignore the fact that I’m starting to fall for her. 

She thinks she’s an ugly duckling and wants to become a swan. All I want is her. And I’m not giving up without a fight.

Chance encounters is a complete package. It's a fun and sweet read with the right amount oh hotness in it. 

This is the type of book that leaves you with happy thoughts and positive vibes. This book has a miraculous mood changing ability. Chance encounters was like a stress reliever for me, I had a bad day but after reading this book all of my stress just vanished.

Though the plot was not very unique yet the story had a unique streak about it. The writing style was very effluent and consistent and the characters were just adorable and lovable making the story much more lively to read.


"I was the damsel in distress, and he was my handsome knight in shining armor".

So the story centers around Chance and Melany. Melany is a shy and awkward. She has a special talent of making every situation awkward. But she has a secret. She is crushing on a guy from the past five years and now she wants him to notice her. Enters chance, a guy who radiates confidence. A chance encounter between Melany and chance on an engagement party turns their life upside down. After a string of even taking place, Melany somehow finds herself asking chance to help her landing the man of her dreams. chance is  intrigued by the sweet yet shy girl. He sees the funny, confident girl behind all the baggy clothes and awkwardness and makes it his mission to help her in finding herself. 

With passing time their friendship blooms and the line between the friends and lovers blurs making their relationship a bit more complicated and turning them into friends with benefits.



But what will happen when the feelings starts mixing up with their arrangement thereby giving rise to misunderstandings. 


I adored the characters especially chance. I assumed him to be a a cold-hearted manwhore/player as in most of the romances but he was a complete sweetheart, a guy who believes in love. Thins made the story a lot more lovable.


So in a nutshell this is a must read...I totally recommend this. Chance encounters​ has made its place on my favorites list and Chance has success landed up a place on my book boyfriends list.

Five Things 'FIVE FEET APART' Taught Us

'Five Feet Apart' is an American Romantic Drama,  inspired by a real-life couple Dalton and Katie Prager, who both suffered from  cystic fibrosis . As you all know that I'm not a movie person, I'd choose books anytime over movies but as I am going through 'Reader's Slump' so I decided to watch Netflix and guess what? I found this treasure. This movie impacted me greatly so I decided to share all my takings with you all. Let's start! 1. Live Big because life don't give us enough chances. 2. Take risks , you never know which moment is your last.  3. Love! Don't be scared of it. Loving won't kill you but not doing it will surely kill a part of you. 4. Take chances! We can die today, we can die tomorrow but we can also make our life worth living. 5. Breathe! Take a deep breath and enjoy your today. We are all on borrowed time. Instead of focusing on making your tomorrow good, make your today even better.

REVIEW: Broken Knight by L.J. Shen

Not all love stories are written the same way. Ours had torn chapters, missing paragraphs, and a bittersweet ending. Luna Rexroth is everyone’s favorite wallflower. Sweet. Caring. Charitable. Quiet. Fake. Underneath the meek, tomboy exterior everyone loves (yet pities) is a girl who knows exactly what, and who, she wants—namely, the boy from the treehouse who taught her how to curse in sign language. Who taught her how to laugh. To live. To love. Knight Cole is everyone’s favorite football hero. Gorgeous. Athletic. Rugged. Popular. Liar. This daredevil hell-raiser could knock you up with his gaze alone, but he only has eyes for the girl across the street: Luna. But Luna is not who she used to be. She doesn’t need his protection anymore. When life throws a curveball at All Saints’ golden boy, he’s forced to realize not all knights are heroes. Sometimes, the greatest love stories flourish in tragedy TITLE- Broken Knight AUTHOR- L.J. Shen FORMAT- E

BOOK REVIEW: BOUND BY VENGEANCE(born in blood mafia chronicles #5 ) BY CORA REILLY

Growl He’d never had something to himself, never even dared to dream about owning something so precious. He was the unwanted bastard son who’d always had to content himself with the leftovers of others. And now they’d given him what only a few weeks ago had been out of his reach, someone he wasn’t even allowed to admire from afar, one of their most prized possessions. Thrown at his feet because he was who he was because they were certain he would break her. He was her punishment, a fate worse than death, a way to deliver the ultimate punishment to her father who had displeased them so greatly. Cara She had always been the good girl. It didn’t protect her. She didn’t know his real name. People called him Growl to his face and the Bastard behind his back. Both were names he couldn’t possibly have chosen for himself. His eyes were empty, a mirror to throw back her own fear at her. He was a brutal hand of the Las Vegas Camorra. And now she was at his mercy.
