Who was excited about meeting Flynn Caldwell? This girl! I mean...there hasn't been a Caldwell man that I haven't liked yet, but I was curious about Flynn. What I found with his story was a really kind, patient, giving, and yes, super sexy guy! I'm definitely happy that we got his story.




I liked having a little bit of background on him going in to the story. He lost his high school girlfriend in a house fire, hence leading him into a life as a firefighter. He has the tendency to want to save people. Especially women. As a result, he's often been taken advantage of in relationships. So, when he saves Rowan while on the job, he can't help but want to help her out. The circumstances surrounding her situation were shady and a bit dangerous, but Flynn felt like there was something different, unique about Rowan and he wanted to know more about her. He invites her to stay with him while she gets back on her feet. Naturally, feelings and attraction grow, but Rowan has her own set of issues to overcome and she's not quite ready for what Flynn has to offer.




Rowan was...frustrating for me. She ran away from home when she was eighteen and didn't have a very good relationship with her parents. The result was a girl who felt unloved and reluctant to let herself feel for others. She worried she didn't know how to love because she wasn't sure what it felt like to be loved. So, I understood all of that, but Flynn was the perfect guy and she repeatedly led him on and then pushed him away. I understood the first time it happened, but after that...she needed to be smacked. By the end, I was happy that she finally let Flynn into her heart, but boy did it take a while.




A few little extras that I loved in this one were the love they had for Rowan's dog, Capone. While the fire introduced them to each other, I felt like the dog brought them together. I also loved the relationship that Nix and Rowan had. It was like a sibling relationship and it made me laugh. Seeing Flynn interact with his cousins and sister was pretty special for me too. I love this group. 




Overall, I really enjoyed Off Chance. The ending and the epilogue were exactly what I needed to wrap their story up. I absolutely loved seeing past characters. Nix is my favorite in the entire series and I was happy to see plenty of him in this book. I also loved getting updates on Linc, Ryan, and Renner too. This whole group is great and I'm hoping we will get at least a few more books in this series. If you haven't started this series yet, definitely check it out!




Quotes:
~"There's never anything funny about a beautiful, bra-less woman. That's something I take very seriously," I tell her with a slight grin of my own. "But apparently I got sidetracked from what I though was funny."-Loc 938




~He has the ability to undo the entire basis of my existence for the past five years, and I don't think I'm ready to let go of the safety net that my walls provide me.-Loc 1065




~"You love me?" he asks in wonder.
"I do. You're my hero, Flynn Caldwell. Not because you pulled me out of a fire, but because you pushed me to love. It's for that reason I love you."-Loc 3642

    Last of the series

    Simple straightforward writing style, with first person narratives that alternate between Flynn and Rowan. The story opens as Flynn loses his high school sweetheart in a devastating fire, then jumps to present day where he has become a New York fire fighter, with a white knight urge to rescue others and a pattern of falling for broken people who need fixing. Then he encounters Rowan, whose dog helps him find her in a burning apartment building, where she has been shackled to a bed.

    After this initial rescue, the story moves forward with the ups and downs of the relationship between Flynn and Rowan, as Flynn realizes he is falling in love for a girl who is down, not broken, but a survivor still struggling to learn how to love and trust. The relationship takes realistic turns, and nicely details the emotional tug of war between friendship and love, with an easy straightforward style.

    Sadly, the best moment in the story is not between the two main characters, but is instead the exchange of wedding vows between their friends Nix and Emily. The vows are a heartfelt mutual declaration of love that could become a romance classic and may bring tears to your eyes.

    Eventually each of the characters find their true path and the series wraps up with an Epilogue of a picnic, four years after the timeline in the main story.

    The really good thing about this book is the wedding scene betwe

    The really good thing about this book is the wedding scene between Nix and Emily. It brought me to tears. Flynn, the firefighter who lost his
     high school girlfriend in a fire tries to relieve guilty feelings by saving everyone he can. He takes in Rowan, who was tied to a bed and left
     for dead since she has nothing but her dog, Capone. The attraction was there from the beginning, but Rowan was extremely annoying.
    Lead him on, break his heart, lead him on, break his heart, lead him on, break his heart. You get the picture. I felt like the ending came
     about too quick.
