Book Review: Chancing on You

Chancing on You by Melinda Ellen: Hope Andrews has been trying to find her place in the world for the past seventeen years, but being an orphan and getting shipped from home to home hasn't always made it easy. Between her current foster carers who are to busy getting high to the bullies at school who make her life hell, Hope finds solitude in her music. She's silently counting down the days until she turns eighteen and can finally make her escape once and for all, but what she doesn't count on is the new guy Jaxon Broad turning her plans upside down.

After leaving the city behind which was tainted with his past, Jaxon moved to live with his brother. He needed to escape the memories that haunted his dreams and swore him off relationships. So when he lays eyes on the intriguing brunette Hope, he's not prepared for the feelings that keep stirring within.

But will their second chance at happiness be destroyed when their pasts won't let them go?

Toni's thoughts: I have been going back and forth on this review. I was really sucked into this book and thoroughly enjoying reading it until about 75% in. I loved the characters and the emotions you felt coming off what they went through and them being strong and surviving the situations that only made them stronger. I didnt like that I knew what was going to happen before it even did. There are just too many books out there where at about 3/4 of the way through there is a huge miss understanding and a big blow up and then everything turns out perfectly fine. I just wish the author would have went a different way instead of Jaxon thinking that Hope was cheating on him. He kept saying over and over again that he was going to protect her and that they will get through anything together and he just walks away without a word to her. The book just fell flat in my opinion but it had really great potential. Im giving it 4 hearts since it is a good book and I think others should read it and may have a differing opinion about the end.
