One small town. One dead sheriff. A town with secrets.
Newly appointed sheriff Trent Stone is investigating the murder of his predecessor. This leads him to Misty Grove, a town lined with innocent diners and general stores, but his gut instinct tells him that nothing is what it seems.
It doesn’t help that his first encounter with one of its citizens is at the end of her shotgun.
A beautiful hellion.
Cassandra Reed is unlike any woman he has ever met. She’s tough and sassy, yet her eyes hold a vulnerability that calls to his protective side. Trent’s dedication to his job has always caused the demise of his previous relationships, so what is it about Cassie now that compels him to risk it all, especially when she has made it clear she doesn’t need his protection?
When Cassie brushes off injuries from a suspicious incident, Trent’s need to serve and protect deepens into an alarming obsession over a woman who challenges his every instinct of self-preservation. Staying away from her is not an option, and he will be damned if he lets Cassie deny the growing attraction between them.
But when the town’s secrets are revealed, he discovers he’s in over his head. As a mere sheriff, the menace that looms over Misty Grove is way above his pay grade. Before the threat can rip away the woman who has come to mean everything to him, Trent will have to make a tough decision. One that will give him and Cassie a fighting chance at a future together.
*Strong sexual content and language. Can be read as a standalone, but may leave questions about secondary characters who will become the protagonists in upcoming books.

Fighting Chance (Misty Grove #1)

By Victoria Paige

 

Possessive and bossy…NICE!!

I really enjoyed Fighting Chance. I’m going to keep this review pretty short (for me) because I really think Fighting Chance will be enjoyed more knowing as little as possible. Firstly, I have to admit that I was completely confused at the beginning. I was scratching my head trying to work out who was who, what they do, what they are and how they do it, was really tricky. Until it was completely laid out for me, I was completely bamboozled. Everything is explained and I settled into another action packed Victoria Paige adventure.

The characters are awesome. The hero, Trent Stone, is the newly appointed sheriff and his role is going to be far from straightforward. Within days he realises that the little town he is sent to is hiding secrets and he’ll need all of his prior training to get to the heart of the problem. Talking about hearts…his has been stolen by the woman holding a shotgun to his head.

Cassandra Reed, her twin brother, family and town have a HUGE secret. When the new sheriff hits town it seems that their secret may not be kept for long from him. It doesn’t take long for them to realise that he’s no ordinary sheriff. Cassie is a strong-willed, determined and stubborn woman who knows how to handle herself. She is very attracted to Trent but knows it’s her job to push him away.

Fighting Chance is full of action, conflict, suspense and a whole lot of sexual tension. When Cassie and Trent finally come together it’s explosive.

I started and finished this story in one day. It was riveting and I was sucked in from the very first page. A few of the characters from Victoria Paige’s previous books are mentioned and it gave me a buzz to see and hear about them again.Fighting Chance is the first story in the Misty Grove series and I will definitely be coming back for more.

About Victoria Paige:

I work as a freelance database administrator, and when I’m not geeking out, I write romantic suspense novels. I live in Richmond, Va—less than two hours away from Washington DC—so most of the settings of my books are in the nation’s capital—of course, I’m not averse to creating fictional towns and cities.

When I’m not arguing with the alpha male characters in my head, I love to watch high-octane action movies. I think Jack Bauer is the shit, which is why most of my characters are such badasses bent on saving the world from evil-doers.

I love reading adult contemporary, paranormal, urban fantasy, historical, romantic suspense, and a few new adult fiction as well as military non-fiction.
