On the surface, Chelsea Greer has it all:
A loving husband.
A nice house.
A good job.

In reality, she works hard to maintain the illusion that is her life. She's also missing the most important thing:

Love.

One night could change her life. One night could give her the strength to rediscover what's important. In one night, she could find love when she most needs it and least expects it.

All Chelsea has to do is follow her heart after One Chance Night.

I received this book for free from The Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.



I love when a book not only takes me by surprise, but has the ability to make me think. What one would consider this situation to be “black and white,” isn’t. It’s easy to sit on the outside passing judgement, or give advice we feel is an obvious solution without knowing the full details or how alone, isolated and lost someone really is.

Chelsea has been married to her high school sweet-heart for four years and is not happy. Taking a chance and going out with one of her co-workers, she meets someone who she is instantly attracted to, and opens up about her life. As events unfold, Chelsea comes to realize that she is in control and must make the first steps on her journey to happiness.

There are things within this situation that might not sit right with some. While in a sense, I am in agreement but looking at the bigger picture, I never felt what she was doing what overly wrong. Again – situation has a lot of gray in it. What Chelsea needed were friends, and someone to listen. I believe she would have found that with Stevie (her co-worker) but something sparked between her and Brett. She has a lot of growth to her character. She is a people-pleaser and push over, and watching her gain that confidence back was beautiful.

I really wish the book was longer, so I was able to get more depth to all the characters, especially Brett and Chelsea, because that is what really hindered my attachment to the characters.

Overall – I enjoyed it! One Chance Night took me by surprise. While it is a love story in a sense, it is mainly about a young woman on a path of self discovery and finding her place within the world.

    Life isn’t black and white so I really appreciate it when books reflect that. Sounds like an interesting read and I love that it took you by surprise. When you read as much as we do, a book that does that is one to take note of!
