    One thought on “Chance of the Heart”

    1. 4.5 Stars!KadeI think this might be my favorite Kade Boehme yet!!! Chance and Bradley were just.Oh and let's not forget the dirtyBradley you dirty dog. Spanking! What a pleasant little surprise that was. Kind of made me chuckle! I loved Toppy Bradley! But beyond that, the way the characters and the relationship grew was perfect. The whole in-the-closet storyline.ah, makes me nervous as hell. And Chance had a girlfriend almost the first half of the book. But it didn't bother me like I thought it [...]

    2. It's LIVE!!!!amazon/gp/aw/d/B00SM60Kade Boehme, This book was so freaking good! I loved everything about it. In this story we have Chance- who has always done as he's been told and followed the path expected of him. Then we have Bradley- who is just trying to stay afloat after a bout of bad luck.What I loved:*Great character development.*Awesome relationship build up- the way he developed their friendship I should say.*Story was very smooth. There weren't any slow moments.*Steam-*Low angst.*Feel [...]

    3. 4.5 STARSChance is a 23 years old young man who lived all his life in a small town named Hope Springs. He’s a good man with a simple life, he works hard and he respect his parents. He goes to church on Sundays and he never cheated on his girlfriend, Caitlin. Chance and Caitlin decided they need a break to find themselves when Caitlin went to college. Bradley is gay and he’s out and proud. He just lost his accountant job, so he decides to move back in his hometown, Hope Springs even if his re [...]

    4. OK, can someone give it to me straight Is the religious presence in the book gonna make me pull my hair out and squeal with agony? Or are these boys able to handle it without shame and the religious leaders evil enough to be laughable? I just can't handle watching ANYONE being shamed and FEELING shamed about their sexual orientation in my entertaining reading enjoyment. If it rolls off their backs, I'm good. But if it causes undue angst, I just can't do it. See A Forbidden Rumspringa and F.A.S.T [...]

    5. I. Loved. This. Book.     There's nothing quite like books where the MC's have know one another since they were kids, actually growing up together, getting to know one another through the years.I love the kind of shared history and experiences, which we see in this book with Chance and Bradley, having grown up together.The mentality of the people in their hometown of Red River, TX sounded very much like that of my own tiny hometown of 500 people in East Tennessee. It was expected that you th [...]

    6. 5 sweet dirty-talking amazing stars The path to happiness isn't always the easiest.And it was definitely not an easy path for Chance and Bradley.I loved this book. Loved, loved, loved. Chance of the Heart is a story of these two men finding each other, falling in love and fighting against their own fears, and for each other is beautiful. Low angst, but full of emotion. Watching them both change and become more together than they could ever be separately was just perfection. Chance is wonderful - [...]

    7. ***4 Stars***This was a low-angst, heartwarming and steamy read that I really liked. Chance and Bradley both had their faults, but they fit together perfectly. I really loved them together and their chemistry and connection was apparent from the beginning. Chance has his whole life in Hope Springs mapped out for him. his father's ranch, marry his high school sweetheart, raise a family on the ranch and live happily ever after. Too bad Chance doesn't want most of those things. He's confused, frust [...]

    8. It's been a minute since I've actually sat and read a book straight thru. My mind hasn't let me do that as of late. But this book sucked me in and had me forgetting all my real life shit. I even burned the lunch I attempted to make while reading. OH wellwho needs food when there's a nawty boy standing there in nothin but cowboy boots and a stetson?! I LOVED every second of this one and would recommend to everyone!There is definite naughty sexy times but there is also loads of real life feels! Ku [...]

    9. The path to true love or happiness certainly doesn't run smoothly for Chance Becket or Bradley Heart. They have many obstacles to overcome, not least of which is the fact that Chance doesn't even know that he's gay (although he has his suspicions), is engaged to his childhood sweetheart, in line to take over the family ranch and is just doing what his family expect of him UNTIL he meets old school friend and former fellow barrel racer Bradley in a gay bar in a nearby town one night. What happens [...]

    10. This book is absolutely perfection! I love cowboys, I love friends to lovers stories and I love Kade Boehme's books! So this book has the perfect ingredients to be loved!Chance and Bradley are friends, but they have been apart for some time Chance lives trying to please everyone and doing what's expected from him and he actually created those expectations Bradley did what he had to do, to be who he is, leaving his religious father, his family, friends, and the city where he have grown But what i [...]

    11. BR with my Girls! This is such a beautiful MM story of love, family, the battles that gay men find themselves and the future. Kade Boehme did an amazing job in this novel, he does na amazing job writing books that makes you "feel". The book was well written and flowed very well. It held me dazzled from page one, I could spend forever reading about these guys and still never get enough.Don’t miss this one if you enjoy reading a love story that will put a goofy smile on your face,(view spoiler)[ [...]

    12. Reread 6/28/154.5 stars!! I LOVE Chance and Bradley! This is my fav of the Kade Boehme books I've read so far. I was completely immersed in their story. Everything was perfectly proportional (get your mind outta the gutter!). The perfect amount of character development, the perfect amount of UST, the perfect amount of smexy scenes, the perfect amount of happy, and the perfect amount of angst. I was so invested in these two. My 0.5 off was a small thing, but the book would've been 5 stars otherwi [...]

    13. 4.5 starsMaybe it's just me but i feel Kade Boehme's books are getting better and better.Not just the writing but the plot and the character development as well.AnywayThis was me favourite book of the author.I liked both MCs but Chanceoh Chance, you stole my heart.I would still like this book the same even if we had only his POV. To me, this story was the journey of a man towards self-discovery.In the beginning we see a man who doesn't stand up for himself, works hard to please others and doesn' [...]

    14. Really enjoyed it. Loved the love story. I liked that it wasn't instant love and the relationship had time to grow into what it was. It needs some editing though. The names being mixed up could be a bit confusing at times. There were a few moments I thought I had some how skipped pages and was reading in the others POV. It really didn't take away from the story but it was distracting. Still one I would recommend to those who enjoy a good love story and who don't mind a few editing issues. :]

    15. Oh my, this was just such an easy breezy beautiful romance. I totally enjoyed it and am so happy I read it. Fucking cowboys falling in love. Big, strong cowboys. In hats. With horses. But sweet. Love.

    16. I just realized that I never posted my review for this book. Bad Jewel! Well, better late than never, yeah? I LOVED this book! Chance of the Heart is the best book by this author that I have read. Both MC's really captured my heart and I felt emotionally invested in them getting their HEA.Chance is a young man that never really had the opportunity to spread his wings. He runs his parent's ranch, but that isn't something he really wants to do. He feels resigned to it. He watched his friends eithe [...]

    17. Good friends (childhood crushes) to lovers story. With all the touchy subjects of coming out in a small town, meddling families, religious families, and parental expectations, not to mention the expectations of marriage to a long time girlfriend that is still in the picture, this book did not get overly angsty. I loved both MC's and was really invested in them working everything out.With a great blend of drama, romance, sexy times with dirty talking and sweetness this was another winner from Kad [...]

    18. 3.5 stars. I liked it, but I'm sort of lukewarm for this author. Something about the writing style just doesn't jive. But I enjoyed the hot cowboy love scenes. Thanks for the rec, Ele! :)

    19. BR with my partner in crime Elsbeth.A great first half with a disappointing last part.We have sweet cowboy Chance who is just going through the motions in life. He has a steady girlfriend and he is supposed to take over the ranch of his parents. But he’s not really happy. When his girlfriend suggests they take a break to figure things out before they get married, Chance has no idea what to do. When he goes out, he ends up in a gay bar. It is there that he meets Bradley, an old high school frie [...]

    20. Antother BR, February 1st with Sweet SusanI wanted to give this 5 stars!! DammmmnnnThe first 75%, this was me:The last 25%, this was me:That disappoints me so much…I was rooting for Chance. Chance was struggling with his being straight/bi/gay. After he and his girlfriend Caitlin agreed to take a break from their relationship, he meets Bradley. There was always this connection between these guys and man, the book was sizzling!!And when everything was going hunky-dory, the girl friend returns an [...]

    21. I absolutely love to witness how much better an author gets with every book he/she writes. Kade's writing has gotten so much better in the past year and he's become one of my favorite authors.I loved this book, it was real with believable characters, low angst but not even close to fluffy or boring. And the epilogue was my absolute favorite, exactly what I needed to label this book as pretty much perfect. I can't wait to see what's coming next, but I know one thing for sure. If he continues like [...]

    22. This wasn't my first Kade Boehme book, but it was the first one I've read of him that isn't co-written. Aside from a few things that didn't have me entirely convinced, I really enjoyed the book.The beginning felt a bit rushed for me, and while I fell for Chance almost immediately, this was a bit of a turn off, and I was afraid that the book would keep that pace. However, as the story went by, I understood that it was supposed to be like that, and then slow down so we could get to see the couple [...]

    23. Such a disappointment. I have read other Kade Boehme novels before and found them to be easy, enjoyable reads. This story had a great deal of potential for exploring topics of family expectations, religion, self-awareness and self acceptance. However, none of that exploration happened beyond a slight scratching of the surface. I didn't feel any chemistry between the MCs at all. I wasn't sold on their relationship as friends or lovers -- none of it worked for me. As a reader, I am very sensitive [...]

    24. I feel a bit badI skimmed the last 20% of this book because Preppy came out and I am so anxious to start it!Thoughts:-I felt like for all the confusion Chance was having in his head that he fell into bed extremely quick (like full on fucking) with Bradley. I would have liked a little morerehension?? I don't know, to me it felt forced and not so much like chemistry. -I LOVED the Texas cowboy theme! Being from Texas I could definitely appreciate all the nods to our culture like the ranching, rodeo [...]

    25. 4.5 STARSI read this book very slowly because of *real life* and at first, I was thinking to just give it a 3 star rating. Then, when I was about to finish the book, I remembered how great this one really is! I like the simplicity of the story. Yes, the plot and even the form of the characters were overused (cowboy, religion shit, and all that jazz) but I thought it was handled really well here and wasn't blown out of proportion. No unnecessary drama nor angst. As they always said, "Simplicity i [...]

    26. I’m definitely enjoying reading Kade Boehme’s books. His style reminds me a bit of M.J. O’Shea and Piper Vaughn – mostly low-angst but there’s something very Kade about his books. This was his first “cowboy-themed” book – not like hardcore cowboy – I guess, more on country boys suppressing themselves – oh poor boys. Don’t worry though; it’s not that intense when it comes to keeping it inside the closet. Chance Becket is in the closet but upon reuniting with childhood “c [...]

    27. Sweet fluffy romance about two hot men. One so deep in the closethe doesn't even know he's gay. I always love the gay virgin stories ;) This one is low on angst and high on sexy. Some drama going on about family and coming out, but nothing that will have you biting your nails and grinding your teeth. I really liked it, especially after reading some more actionfilled books. It was very relaxend. I do have to say that once Chance figures out he is gayhe really tries to go for it. Good for him !! H [...]

    28. Loved this book, loved these two guys. Poor walled up Chance. He was going through the motions of life until he saw Bradley, and all the feelings he had for him as a young man coalesced and he finally saw the light. And Bradley whose father rejected him, and who for years lived in the shadows as boyfriend of a closeted man, wasn't about to settle for second best any longer.This is a wonderful story of acceptance, coming to terms with who you are and learning to let go of what you can't change. T [...]
