I throughly enjoyed every page of this book and didn't want to put it down. Excellent storyline and characters you just fall in love with. Great example of family love and support at it's best. This was my second book in the Callahans of Texas series. I can't wait for the third to be completed and already have it saved on my wish list.

Sweet and predictable, almost-perfect characters. Little suspense. Nice, "G-rated" story of family and romantic love.

I loved the book but had some technical difficulty with the ebook side. It was missing some text towards the last half of the book and numbers randomly appeared in middle of the text. I emailed the publisher and they assured me they would look into the issue and promptly fix it. I purchased the next book in the series and it was fine.

Gotta love those Callahans! After devouring Jenna's Cowboy, I just had to get my hands on this book, as well. I'm so glad I did. I could not put it down, and loved it even more than the first book. Gillenwater's family novels are just wonderful.

A quick and fun read. This is #2 in the Callahans of Texas series. After book 1, I definitely wanted to read the other two in the trilogy. Well written.

Emily Rose Denny grew up searching for her parents' approval. As a college graduate attempting to build her resume, she recognizes that she's still seeking to measure up to her parents' standards. Success, no matter the cost, is her goal. She's not ruthless, just very determined. She takes joy in her temporary job in Callahan Crossing as she works to set up the town's new museum. She also enjoys the people of the city, especially one handsome cowboy, Chance Callahan, maybe a little too much. Chance appreciates spending time with Emily too. In fact, within a few times of meeting her, he knows he's going to marry her. Unfortunately for him, Emily plans to leave for the big city in a few months and really isn't interested in having a pointless relationship. Will Chance be able to convince Emily to stay? Will Emily learn that true contentment is found in love rather than in a misplaced obsession with success? Emily's Chance is a sweet love story. There are a lot of feel good moments in this book. However, the story didn't captivate me. I think it would have benefited the story if the main characters had not been so perfect and if there had been more tension. If you like romance novels with predictable, perfect characters, you will probably like this book. However, I recommend renting it from the library before buying.
