    3. I was so happy to be back at Last Chance for Christmas this year Thompson takes the world that she s developed earlier in the series and throws a holiday surprise into the mix This novel is well written with descriptions that make it very easy to picture the world surrounding the characters The multifaceted storyline is simultaneously complex and easy to follow Getting to know the main characters in this novel was very enjoyable The complexity of what makes them who they are combined with their [...]

    4. Unfortunately this one wasn t a winner for me I didn t warm to Ben or Molly at any point during the story They both felt very immature and I found myself annoyed with them both Molly constantly talked about how being thin was a curse and that men didn t find her attractive Ben doesn t really help matters when he informs her that most of the women he has been attracted to have all been well proportioned than Molly Molly needing the amount of reassurance and coddling that she did was another turn [...]

    5. Almost OK, but no quiteThis is my first book by Vickie Lewis Thompson and I really didn t find it all that great It spent a LOT of time on Sarah s surprise birthday present, then a LOT of time on Ben and Molly desiring each other There wasn t an actual story So I can t see me reading anything else by her It took too much for me to finish this novella At one point Pete said he was stoked about something and I really can t see a man over 70 using that word Then later when Molly was telling Ben she [...]

    7. I was given an ARC from Net Galley in exchange for my review In fairness to the author, I have not read any other books in this series, which made it distracting as I read this book Throughout the book, the author introduces an overload of characters that were the center of the rest of the series and I felt it pulled away from the main storyline Ben Radcliffe arrives at the Last Chance Ranch to deliver a custom saddle that he has created for the matriarch of the family for her birthday Ben is a [...]

    12. See of my reviews on my blog Thoughts At One In The Morning.My Thoughts You know those books where you pick it up and start reading and then you just can t stop reading it because of how addictingly good it is Yes, I m making up words Well, this was it I was reading it and found myself completely immersed in the romance Molly and Ben had chemistry like you wouldn t believe Ben s past is one you sympathize with, and you hope with all your heart that Molly can be the one to help him break free.A [...]

    13. 4.5 starsI knew with this being a Vicki Lewis Thompson book I wouldn t be disappointed I also knew with it being another Last Chance ranch book I d fall in love with it and I did.This one was a bit different, Ben had a harder road ahead of him with his past and his fears of what he could become.Lucky for him Molly was visiting the Last Chance and saw something in him, than he gave himself credit for.Ben and Molly had a bit of an uphill struggle This is a story of learning to let go, to trust, t [...]

    17. This is a pretty good read and a good addition to the series It is a bit short and the romance is rushed I would have liked to have seen it stretched out a bit Ben Radcliff is determined to live his life alone, no wife, no kids He fears he will become his father But when he spends an incredible weekend at the Last Chance ranch and meets the incredibly sweet Molly he begins to want So much

    18. Ben Radcliffe never expects to find a family when he agrees to make a saddle for the owner of Last Chance Ranch but that is what he finds a family and even Molly Gallagher is just visiting She is part of the Arizona branch of the family In this the last book in the Sons of Chance series Thompson sets the stage for a new series featuring the Gallagher s of Arizona A nice story with two wonderful main characters and a chance to visit with the characters from previous books.

    19. I love this series Even though there are several books in this series, you need not have read them as it can easily be read as a standalone What s better than getting to spend Christmas with the Chances A real country Christmas with great characters, some we know and new ones a super hot and sweet romance, and plenty of Christmas cheer Thank you Ms Lewis Thompson for another great book I would like to thank the publisher and NetGalley for making this wonderful book available to me.

    20. The Sons of Chance series returns to the essence of what keeps these books so compelling and the steamy love scenes certainly don t hurt either RT Book Reviews, 4 stars.Miniseries Sons of Chance

    22.

    23. This book did not work for me First, I need to mention that I didn t know it was 17 in a series of 17 books That would ve been extremely helpful to know prior to reading it, but it was not clearly stated on the cover or in the summary If I would have known about all the other books in the series, I would not have requested it from NetGalley That being said, I read it as a standalone, but it didn t work very well as such The main characters are Molly a college professor genealogist and Ben a sadd [...]

    24. The latest release in this author s Sons of Chance series, it works reasonably well as a standalone title, but there is certainly familiarity with the plethora of characters introduced if you have read earlier titles in the series A western themed romance, Ben is a custom saddlemaker, set to deliver a saddle to the Last Chance Ranch The saddle is to be a secret, so he uses the ploy of looking for a horse as a cover and runs straight into Molly Molly is a genealogist and a cousin, at the ranch t [...]

    25. This a light story, definitely something that I would pick up if I simply wanted a pick me up that left me feeling warm and fuzzy It s a pretty quick read and that also made it enjoyable It was long and drawn out, but rather, it got to the love story very quickly and kept the momentum through the book Since it s on the shorter side, it didn t have time to slow down or get boring Fair warning, if you re opposed to insta love you won t want to read this I have no issue with it and sometimes, I rea [...]

I am giving this a 3 star the reason being I didn t hate it or love it It was a nice read but had nothing to really stick and grab you I thought it had a nice plot with a nice story just did not pull me in and want me to stay awhile I felt the author repeat herself to much, on some things once was enough I did find my mind wondering but the author made it interesting enough to make me want to finish the read I have not read any of this series and this could be the reason I feel this way I am sur [...]
