Book Review: Parting Chances

Parting Chances (Fighting Chance #1) by Caylie Marcoe: The road of Haley Cavanaugh’s life has been filled with cracks, potholes and detour signs. Her mom’s cancer forced her to grow up too fast and her brother has moved across the country instead of sticking around when she needs him most. Now, her parents are forcing her to move out. They say she needs to follow through with the plans she’s set for herself, but Haley is torn between her dreams and her family’s reality. The only thing she has to look forward to is living with her best friend, Kyler.

What she doesn't need right now? Eli Park. Haley remembers him as Kyler’s boyfriend’s geeky roommate, but he’s anything but geeky now. Now, he's downright hot. And Haley cannot get him out of her head.

It would be easier if they didn’t have class together five days a week. Or have weekly study dates. And if she didn’t spend way too much time with Kyler at Eli’s house. But, the closer he gets and the harder she falls, the more Haley pulls away. Her heart is too fragile to end up broken on the side of the road. She thinks she’s got it under control until Eli brings home another girl and Haley realizes what she has to lose.

As Haley’s life is turned further upside down, will she be left to pick up the pieces of her heart alone?

Liza's thoughts: This book was an emotional roller-coaster to me. I laughed, smiled and cried at different times throughout this book. It was almost like parts of me was in this book and my heart was experiencing everything she was. I have stopped and rewritten this review twice, because you need to experience the emotions of what is going on with Haley as the story unfolds. How does what is happening around her shape, make or break her? Can a heart that Haley is not sure even feel whole be open to dating or more?

I would highly recommend this book to anyone. The plot and character development is great and well supported. I cannot wait to read more from this author. She is creative and knows how to grip your heart.
