Review & FREE e-book: Taking a Chance by Becky Monson

Heidi Reads... Taking a Chance by Becky Monson

My rating: 5 stars / It was amazing


TAKING A CHANCE is a fun romantic comedy novella!

Liza Parker has a fear of heights, crowds and small spaces. So what’s a girl like her doing on a crowded elevator going to the top of the Empire State Building? Freaking out, that’s what she’s doing.

Enter Jay Sanders, a tourist who thinks he might be able to help Liza face her fears, but she has to be willing to spend the day with a complete stranger. Maybe taking a chance on Jay is just what Liza needs.

My Review

Loved it! Liza's fears were palpable as well as her emotional grief for her sister. I loved the way Jay connected with her and befriended her- such a sweet, good guy! Liza's inner dialogue was pretty funny, self-aware, and self-deprecating. I was glad to see that she realized the risks of trusting a stranger, and her radar is present as they enjoy their time together in New York City. I especially enjoyed the setting since I got to visit there for the first time a couple years ago and it made the story easy to visualize- and wish I could hop on a plane and go back! I loved how Jay and Liza's chemistry sparks as they progress to attempting greater heights in the city. A great little novella and one I'll be reading again when I need to vicariously travel ;)
