About the Author

Archie Hellshire is an author with aspirations of being able to write. He was born in the Caribbean where he developed a love of nature, the metric system, and high temperatures. In school, lacking any athletic or social ability, he became a very bookish person, indulging in the works of Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett, JK Rowling, and Charles Dodgson. Despite being well read, he struggled with dyslexia and would forever remain horrible at spelling. The advent of Spell Checker reignited his dreams of becoming an author.

Archie grew up in a family and culture that was not tolerant of homosexuals, and he spent his entire young life in the closet, retreating into his books and a rich fantasy life. In the theater of his mind, the romances he read could be edited to be male couples. He dreamed of one day writing his own stories and living his own happy ending.

3.5 stars- I picked up this novella in hopes for something a bit different and Chance certainly offered that. A shorter read that covered a lot of action and story in a relatively brief period, Chance detailed the exciting, peculiar events of what started out as another ordinary day for risk analyzer, Daniel, and courier, Nathan. I’m always wary about complex plots in a novella, but Chance included sufficient details to keep me satisfied and engaged. Additionally, the author highlighted Daniel’s character enough at the start so the reader can appreciate how out of his comfort zone he was as the events that would change his outlook and life unfolded. This change provided a nice character arc that left me hopeful for a bit more by the end. I also liked that the idea of “chance” ran throughout the novella- appearing in multiple scenarios and with multiple characters- tying the theme together nicely and making for an interesting read. The writing itself was solid, the characters interesting, and the pacing kept the speed and excitement rolling. Unfortunately, the shortened timeline meant too much story happened in too few pages- especially as the book concluded- and the character and relationship development suffered a bit. That said, Chance is the first of a series so I’m hopeful we get more time with Daniel and Nathan and the opportunity to see their story play out, especially in the romance area. If you’re in a mood for a quick, action-packed read with the promise of more to come, I’d recommend giving this title a try. *eARC received via Netgalley.
