Because you can't judge a book by its cover

Mike Taggart in Last Chance Family by Hope Ramsay is used to gambling with money, as a professional gambler in Las Vegas he has no problem taking chances but, for the first time in his life, the chance he is taking might be more than he is willing to pay. When his half-sister is murdered Mike takes custody of his niece, 5 year-old niece Rainbow, and he is determined to give her the best family he can, which means tracking down his brother Tim, who he hasn’t seen since he was five, a pastor in Last Chance. While Father Tim seems willing to take on Rainbow, Mike decides to stay in Last Chance until he can find the perfect mother for Rainbow and arrange for that woman to date Tim.

Charlene Polk has a history of choosing the wrong men. When she meets her new temporary neighbor, sexy Mike she sees trouble written all over him. But Mike has his niece who desperately needs to be loved and Charlene desperately wants to give that love.

Last Chance Family is the eighth book in the Last Chance series set in a fabulous small town where miracles can happen but don’t expect to keep anything a secret. I am fan of the series but have to admit that Last Chance Family isn’t my favorite of the series. The novel is a great story of people trying to overcome past mistakes to become better than their parents but Charlene was a bit too wishy-washy when she was younger for me. I appreciate that she had strong parents who pressured her into doing what they wanted but I struggled a bit with her as the heroine. That being said, Last Chance Family is a great story about overcoming your past, letting others into your heart, and learning from your mistakes. You don’t have to read the Last Chance series in order (each of the novels is a stand alone novel) but you will appreciate the secondary characters better if you have read the previous series.

Why Ratings?
It is true you can't judge a book by its cover, you also can't judge a book's graphic content by its cover. NovelReaction's goal is to provide readers with a graphic content so they can make an informed decision regarding the books they want to read. (Also, to have a great place for people to discuss books.) So sit back, pull up a beverage, and read on!
