When Lexi Tanner’s unbelievably hot one-night stand turns out to be the same man she needs to approach for a hefty donation, things certainly get complicated. She’ll do anything to raise the money needed for the children’s charity she’s starting—but how can she ask AJ Riley for money now?
Adam knows he’ll never love again. He’s been there and done that. But the sexy woman he had an unbelievable night with causes cracks in his emotional defenses as well as cranks up his libido. One night should have burned her out of his system, but this kind of heat comes with strings…
MY RATING: 2.5/5 STARS
I received an advanced reader copy in exchange for an honest review.
This is my first Jess Dee novel so I didn’t know what to expect but since it was published by Entangled Publishing, I had certain expectations. Hot Sex. Check. A couple with amazing chemistry. Sort of check. And a plot that made me go oh yes! Not really there.
I wanted to give Chance Seduction at least 3 out of 5 stars but it missed it’s mark in my opinion because of several reasons. Let’s start with discussing the plot of this novel. Lexi needs funds to support her charity and the only one that can help? It’s Adam also known as the guy she had red hot sex with literally the day before they meet up. Lexi, of course, didn’t know it was the man she was going to beg for a donation, so it obviously leads to some very awkward conversations when they first meet, properly.
Anyways, Adam becomes defensive towards Lexi, misunderstanding her for someone who slept with him for the donation and Lexi, obviously is pissed at Adam for thinking so low of her. I’ll let you read the rest of the novel to find out what happens between them.
Let’s move onto Adam. The reason why I didn’t give 3 out of 5 stars to this book was simply because of him. While I loved all the book boyfriends in my previous stories I’ve read, Adam was a difficult one. He had a complex background including a divorce that left him scorned and a secret that readers won’t find out until towards the end. I enjoyed his complexity but I seriously hated him when he was so fickle with his mood. He would be exactly what Lexi described him (twice). Hot and cold and then back to soft and then moody. It grated my nerves and made me wonder if he could suffer a mental health issue instead of just bring the broody dominant character’s we’re so used to.
Anyways, there’s nothing much to say about Lexi. She’s a safe character who supports Adam and gets hurt in the process.
Together with Adam and the average plot, Chance Seduction was enjoyable but definitely not the best. I recommend to try other Jess Dee books.
