    Awesome

    I LOVED this one. This book was so much more than I expected. Not that I didn't expect a lot from this author. The prior two Anderson Bros. books have been fun lighthearted reads. This one took the emotional level up about 10 notches while still giving us the fun part. Chance is the adrenaline junkie of the Anderson brothers but in his heart he loves hard and deep and there has only been one woman who has made it into his heart. Gen Richards may be blind but that doesn't mean she can't take care of herself. Convincing her overprotective family of that fact is easier said than done. So to prove her independence she decides with the help of her friends to complete a bucket list she made when she was a young teen, she never could have imagined her first daring venture would bring Chance Anderson back into her life. Chance and Gen's story will definitely tug at your heartstrings and leave you with a very satisfied smile on your face in the end. This is one I HIGHLY recommend.

    fantastic, and can stand on its own

    This is the first in the Anderson Brothers series that I’ve read, but based on Chance of a Lifetime I’ve definitely been missing out. (And it can be read as a standalone.) Together Chance and Gen are fun, flirty and have a deep understanding of one another. Unfortunately they also have a history that makes any kind of a future hard. Gen has let her family control her for far too long and, because of an accident years before, they aren’t going to approve of her being with Chance. Chance knows that her family considers him bad news and a long time ago he made a promise to stay away. But now that they are spending time together, Gen is providing to be impossible to resist. From their first kiss thru her bucket list and all the way to the last page, I absolutely LOVED this story. There are so many wonderful things here – how capable Genny is, the emotions tying these two together for more than a decade, the understanding and support that Chance provides, and the lessons learned by all involved. I was so satisfied and amazingly sad to see it end. (Complimentary copy provided in exchange for an honest review)

    Loved Chance and Gen's story!

    had high expectations for this story which were perfectly met. I loved Gen's character, and it was delightful to see this woman who has lived with her blindness her whole life making the most of things. She doesn't wallow in self pity, she just does what she needs to do. She's tired of her family treating her like she's going to fall apart at any moment, and to prove it she's moved out on her own and is making her own living working in the sound recording field. She's feisty, funny, sweet and a wonderful, caring friend. It's no wonder that Chase has never gotten over her, though his sense of guilt over an event that could have turned out much more serious has dogged him for years. Once they are back in each other's lives, he's determined to help her any way he can, including with her bucket list (which she gleefully blackmails him into helping her with by threatening to tell her brother about their kiss). Chase goes one better, challenging her to do things that even she has doubts about. I loved the way he treated her, with respect and admiration but never seeing her as an invalid. And how sweet too, that in their years apart he still went through the effort of learning braille, and doing things in his own life so that even if he never got the chance to be with her again, she would still be a big part of his life. They still share some definite chemistry, and now as adults there is no hesitation on their parts (despite some minor guilt Chase feels about Gen being his former friend's little sister) to explore this. They share some steamy scenes together that help them to reconnect physically and emotionally. I thought the author did an excellent job of bringing to life the challenges a blind person experiences while at the same time showing how overcoming those same challenges gives that person a new sense of self. This was truly a delightful story and one with a lot of heart to go along with the humor. 4.5 stars.

    Simply Amazing!

    Marissa Clarke has made my list of favorite authors. I will be honest and admit to not reading the book blurb before I started reading Chance of a Lifetime. Thus, I had no idea what to expect. I was surprised the heroine was blind and I had no idea if her blindness was a result of something the hero did in the past. Chance of a Lifetime is one of those romances for the ages. Gen Richards and Chance Anderson met when they were 5 and 8, after Chance attempted to defend her honor on the baseball field. Gen’s family, along with her brother who use to be Chance’s best friend, kept Gen locked in a box and never allowed her to branch out or feel like a “normal” person. Chance was different. He insisted she be included in everything they did. He never once allowed her disability to define who she was. I went from being curious about Gen’s blindness and how that would work in a romance to being completely in awe by her determination to live her life to its fullest. I definitely wasn't expecting her to be a feisty heroine. She’s independent and comfortable in her own skin. The only things holding her back are her parents and brother. After a tragic accident, Chance is ordered to stay away from Gen, but she’s like a magnet and he can’t stay away. So he keeps his distance, always making sure she’s okay. The two reconnect when Gen decides to fulfill her bucket list that she made ten years previously. Item one is kiss a total stranger. Oops, turns out the stranger is Chance, her high school crush. The two agree to fulfill her bucket list, realizing their feelings for one another. There are some authors who grab you with the first words of their book and never let you go. Marissa Clarke is one of those authors. Chance and Gen are both fantastic. I could feel their love for each other coming through the pages. There were a couple of times I actually felt tears in my eyes. I’ve loved couples in the past, but these two go beyond anything I’ve ever felt for another couple. Marissa has ended the Anderson Brothers series on a high note. Big sigh!!!! I loved this book. It should be noted Chance of a Lifetime is a standalone read. **Personal Purchase**

    I LOVED IT!!!

    Chance of A Lifetime has a long list of adjectives to describe it. The characters are fun. The attraction is lethal and the story is off the charts. I LOVED IT. Gen is a courageous heroine that is lovable and inspiring. Finding out her limits is not easy when you have overprotective family and a disability but she still wants to live life to the fullest. Chance could stand to learn a few things from her. He has a heart of gold but has let guilt and shame dampen how he views his relationship with two important people in his life. Chance of a Lifetime is a story of bravery, forgiveness and the healing power of falling in love. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
