In Erica Spindler's Chances Are, the first installment in the Opposites Attract romance series, this classic and early romance will have you wrapped around your fingers and believing in chances. For Brandon Rhodes, he just buried his father at his funeral. As he owned his father's company, a secret came with it that would change lives. When he met Veronique Delacroix, he became fascinated and smitten with her. She was like an intoxicating addiction when you need to have a fix on it. Veronique never met her father, while she became under scrutinized from her father's hateful stare. She may be a wild woman, but she couldn't stand him one set. When she met Brandon, she couldn't stop herself from wanting him for herself. And when Brandon discovered a shocking family secret, he didn't know what to do about it. After that engagement announcement was written in the papers, they put on a charade to shock New Orleans. But when they began to fall in love with each other, it became real, until the secret was out. She didn't want his money when she needed him to take a chance on her love. In the ending, they had gotten what they ever wanted and where it should be from the start.
This was a fascinating classic romance from Erica Spindler. I cared about Brandon and Veronique's story about how they were meant to be together as they defied their odds. I despised Jerome for everything he stood for and was glad he had gotten his comeuppance in the end from Marie. I loved how a magical twist of fate had brought them together to set things up in the story. I loved the New Orleans settings and the scenic locations in every season. This would make you want to take a gamble on love and see where the chips or dice fall. This has romance, drama, non-stop action and a hint of intrigue.
Will you take a chance on Chances Are?
