Overview

A continuation of the "War of Gods" saga

The most powerful vampire on the planet meets his match in Jessi, a woman immune to his magick - and his charm.

As the single-most powerful vampire on the planet, Xander is the ultimate bored predator with too much time on his hands. He manipulates the minds of immortals for fun and bullies around the Gods, while guarding the secret source of his power, a crystal that can wipe out the planet. But beneath the surface, he�s a shrewd creature who learned the brutal lesson of why there must be a balance between good and evil. An unwilling protector of the playthings known as humans, he knows when and where to use his power � and never to let anyone close enough to betray him. It�s easy to do, since he has the power to read the minds of everyone around him.

Except for one: Jessi, an innocent looking woman with an unusual talent who shows up unexpectedly in his life. Her sudden appearance is too convenient to be coincidence or chance. Xander determines quickly that she was sent by someone, but he can�t read her mind to discover why.

Jessi�s secret � and Xander�s � have the power to forever change the human world. Intrigued by a new sort of challenge, Xander won�t know how much danger he�s in, until he�s placed his fate in the hands of a woman whose betrayal will cost either his heart or his life.

Worth Reading! Book 1, Damien Eternal series 684 story pages Almost as good as the War of God series. The difference, the War of God series was mainly about the good guys who find their matches. The Damien Eternal series is about the bad guys who find their matches. Will be patiently waiting for the next in the series to come out.

Received a copy of this book from the author, in exchange for an honest review.  From start to finish I was absolutely hooked on this book. Lizzy has a way of pulling you into the worlds and characters that she creates. You fall in love with them and find it impossible to leave.  I have always had a soft spot for Xander in the War of Gods series, and I knew there was more to him than meets the eye. This book gives you a peak behind the scenes of what makes him Xander and in my eyes is incredible. The storyline with Xander and Jessi is both comical and extremely hot.  I definitely recommend this book, and I know you will love it. :)

Did you feel that or was I the only one who had that special tingle in my pants? Yeah, Lizzy is sorta like the JJ Abrams of books for me. She isn’t someone who I gravitate to on the basis of heart-attack-humor but she blows me the eff away with every freakin book on the side of supa-natural and paranorms. She’s got it and I get it. Once I read it, I get a tingle. Sometimes it makes me pee because it is so freakaliciously amazekittens! Other times its the deal where her men make me get excited and it’s a different wetness and tingle altogether. I’m still fanning myself over Rhyn and waving my Team Decker flag. Please don’t ask me what the hell I’m doing licking my paper doll of Nathan or petting my screensaver of Chace. I am pleading the fifth on all accounts. This is also where I’d like to make a plea for sexy men with red necklaces to come bite me. Please, Xander, come nibble me! Xander’s Chance is the spin-off from the War of Gods series. The earlier series was centered around Damian, The White God and his Scoobie-Gang and ends with the Grey God’s story. REALLY if you are going to appreciate this story in it’s fullness you should do your homework and read the previous saga because you really have to learn how it is that Jessi comes to find herself in a situation where she is sent to be with Xander and why it matters. I could explain it to you much better than I’m about to, but honestly, you should read the books. Long story short though… There is a White God, Grey God and a Black God in the mortal world. Jessi’s very young, unfortunate, run-with-the-wrong-crowd cousin is “saved” by a skeevy teen named Jonny who gives her Jessi the mission: Get Xander’s necklace with the red gem. Simple enough; Muhahaha! The Black God has just invited her to steal the source of what keeps the great vampire from cracking the world opening and sucking it dry. No problem for Xander’s Girl Tuesday. Lizzy really sets this up rather brilliantly and with a little twist of surreal life. Xander is a celebrity and he plays up his monster quality with public relations, women, magazine editorials, women, night life, women, and an ego on the region of a good size metropolis. Jessi takes over being his assistant as a temporary situation and quickly sees that he is difficult to handle and hard to resist. His bedroom is a revolving door for whom she names the women by days of the week and finds that Tuesdays are empty and she needs to be sure that she does not fall to the temptation to fill the spot. She is taking care of the playboy and his cat and it’s a great pay but Xander is on at FULL GO all times and it’s hard for her to stay on her toes with him. Which is just what he hopes. Because once this guy gets an in he can plant ideas in your head and he can pull things out. He can manipulate every situation and he really wants to get Jessi under him and in between his teeth. Oh and booked on his Tuesdays. The backstory for how Xander became “Xander” is a really fantastic. She has great mythbuilding. It also pays that she has the world from the War of Gods saga behind this but more to the point she is actually giving an extreme to show you this is one world so that this is why this is not the world you see. I’m going to admit something that will make me a poor Sherrilyn Kenyon fan but I wish this was how the history of Acheron read. I’m sorry but if his book was as succinct as this was and it was all set up like this I might not have lost steam reading the Dark Hunter series. I love Xander’s character and as far as putting him in a frame of comparison with others in the War of God series I sort of think of him as a Darian/Dustin although he’s far more mischievous. He does have the best pairing out of all those in the pre-series except that of Jules and Yully. I heart Yully <3 I recommend this if you are a Lizzy reader. I think you would also like JR Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood. Madeline Pryce’s Dark Series is also a great series to look into if you like this.

3.5 Stars! When I first started this book, I wasn’t sure if I was even going to like it. However as I got further alone in the story, I did start to enjoy the characters and the story line. I haven’t read any of the other books that came before this one, and I do have a feeling that I should check into them. Xander’s story was one that was interesting to say the least. We were able to find out about his past, and what made him who he is. I think the character that I enjoyed the most out of all would be Jessie; she showed an immense amount of strength throughout the story. Usually I do enjoy books that aren’t all about the smut, but with this book I felt very let down because there wasn’t any really there. I do think that I will check out the other series by the author; War of the God's, because maybe that will clear up any confusion that I had with this book. *Received an ARC for honest review*

This was an excellent story. I am a huge Lizzy Ford fan. I have read several of her series and some of her other books too. I always think she is an amazing author and I wasn't disappointed!

Lizzy Ford is a very talented author. I expect nothing less than amazing from her, and she always delivers. Xander is a perfect love story between imperfect paranormals. I love the theme of choices that runs throughout Xander's Chance. Lizzy Ford sticks tightly to the theme, until the very end. I was thrilled to get caught up with my old friends from War of Gods. A must read.
