First off, this is my first experience with books by Christy Reece...but it will not be my last! I have already put her previous books on my wish list for my nook, and I have the release dates of the next 2 "Chance" books on my calendar. This book is one of those you start and then don't want to put down...it was easy to "get into" the story and stay there. The main characters are well developed, and I hope we get to follow up on how they are doing personally and professionally in the next books. I consider this book an "easy read", one that allows for a little escape time...perfect for a rainy day (or a sunny one). Enjoy!

This is another highly recommended read by Christy Reece. She is an auto buy for me. All of her books, including NO CHANCE, contain multi-dimensional characters, plots that keep you reading, and enough emotion and even humor to make a very nice balance. The whole idea of the Last Chance Rescue team makes a perfect backdrop for introducing amazing characters. Delving into their often traumatic pasts just adds to the drama. You don't have to read the three previous LCR books to completely understand where NO CHANCE begins, but those three earlier books are terrific reads. SECOND CHANCE, the next book in this particular trilogy, comes out in just a couple of weeks, and not a moment too soon!

She has a great style of writing. All the characters are interesting with a lot of mystery about them. Only problem is she doesn't write fast enough. 8-) All of her books are winners in my book.

This book was great. It kept my attention and I read it in less than a day. Gabe and Skylar fall in love when they are both at a resort escaping from their personal lives. Within two weeks they are married. Skylar goes home to tell her parents and it doesn't go well. Her father arranges for Gabe to look like he has committed suicide, leaving Skylar to grieve him for 8 years. Meanwhile, Gabriel thinks she doesn't love him, has abandoned him and he is very bitter. When Skylar is kidnapped, her father contacts an agency that finds missing persons, just so happens Gabe is their best man. When he finds out what has happened to Skylar her comes to her rescue. The story takes many twist and turns and has a plot you don't expect. Through it all Gabe fights his attraction to his wife and keeps her at a distance. At times he is cruel and you want to hate him....but you still love him at the same time as his character is so tortured over his past and the women he still loves. The ending is great and I am looking forward to reading more books from this author.

On Kalamina Island in the South Pacific, Gabe Maddox and Skylar James met, apparently fell in love and married. However, happily ever after ended before it began as her wealthy father Jeremiah managed to split the couple. Their last exchange between them was Gabe's note of departure. Eight years later, when his beloved daughter is kidnapped, a desperate Jeremiah hires Last Chance Rescue unaware that Gabe is one of their operatives. Gabe takes charge of the mission in which Skylar was kidnapped trying to learn what happened to her best friend Kendra. The latest Last Chance Rescue (see Rescue me and Run to Me) is an exiting romantic suspense second chance at love, if they survive, thriller. Gabe hides his anger over feeling she betrayed him and desire behind a stoic do the job and move on mask; while Skylar remains frustrated that he left before she could return to him and worried over Kendra. With a several twists including a great late shocker, fans will root for this couple to rescue their hearts as well as their lives, but No Chance for the former and little chance for the latter.

Very good story. Far too many trips down memory lane, but still a great story.

Every book in this series is way to similar. Author even used a line from her previous book in this one. Dont recommend.

Cute but repetitive series. Author needs some different plot lines and more variety in descriptions of characters and depictions of sex scenes.

Oh no, not another predictable "formula" book. Everything about this book was predictable, including the young, macho, gun-toting, tough-guy hero who is incapable of taking out the bad guy who is a middle-aged, pudgy, sits-at-a-desk-all-day dude. Pudgy bad guy gets the drop on our dashing hero who has to be rescued by "the girl" who has never used or held a gun in her life, but who miraculously fires one bullet and kills the bad guy so that our intrepid hero can go to the hospital for the obligatory stay in the ICU while our heroine maintains the bedside vigil wringing her hands, biting her nails, and driving the hospital staff crazy. Story is light weight, easy to read, characters are likeable for the most part, good fluff book to pass the time. Guaranteed not to make you think too hard. Nothing deep or meaninfgul to ponder here. Unless you want to ponder why so many authors like Christy make their kick-ass heros turn into wimps near the end of the story. Why does the handsome prince always have to turn into a frog and be rescued by the damsel in distress in a totally stupid unbelievable scene? Other than that it was a good book with which to kill a few hours and escape the real world without straining any brain cells in the process.
