Chances Are is a great read-. It is set in New Orleans & the book is as much as a history lesson on the area as it is a romance/suspense novel. I thought the characters were unique & real. Veronique is sassy & entertaining & Brandon is pretty close to the ideal man- sexy, manly, & sweet. I look forward to the next book in the Opposites Attract series (this was the first) I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Two and a half stars. I thought this was a really 'odd' book and whilst searching for it on GR discovered that it was first released in 1989 under the Silhouette imprint - totally makes sense! Veronique Delacroix is the illegitimate daughter of one of New Orlean's most prestigious families. Her maternal grandfather appears to loathe her and she never knew anything about her father. People in New Orleans society have looked down on her and her mother all her life. Rather than be crushed by society's censure Veronique has pretended indifference and courted a reputation for being reckless and artistic. She works as a window dresser at the local department store which has become increasingly run down. Brandon Rhodes has inherited the family retail business on the death of his father. The height of New Orleans' high society he is courted and feted wherever he goes. Brandon and Veronique first meet at his father's funeral wake, where Veronique's unconventional clothing and genuine sympathy strike a chord. Then Brandon discovers that she works for him when he visits the store. But Brandon discovers that the family business was built on a lie, the business was supposed to be a joint venture between Brandon's father and Veronique's father but Brandon's father tricked him and ran him out of town. Should Brandon tell Veronique? If he does, what will she do? This book is very much a product of the 1980s. Society balls, Pretty Woman-style shopping expeditions, Dallas-style family feuds and fade-to-grey sex scenes (oh, and no mention of contraception whatsoever). I think more needed to be done to make this a modern novel than just put a sexy cover on the front, it needs a thorough overall. I received a free copy of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

Romance is never dead with Erica Spindler This book was brilliant from start to finish! Veronique raised as the black sheep of the family , a hell raiser and proud. Brandon a recent owner of a wealthy family business both should.never mix yet when they do it's explosive. In this book Erica this book had a slight thriller element that Erica continued in future books. A family secret that could of destroyed brandons and Veroniques love - instead an act of romance brought them together. cannot wait to read more of Erica's romances this had me hooked!

Veronique Delacroix has been raised by a single mother ... she has never met her father and her mother never talks about him. She has grown into a wonderful young woman who doesn't wait for things to happen ... she makes them happen. Brandon Rhodes is the exact opposite. He's wealthy, cultured, raised to take over the reins of his family's retail store. Now that his father has died, he feels cornered ... suffocated. There is something he's missing .. he just doesn't know what. Veronique and Brandon have a chance meeting that leads to the best game of one-upmanship that I have ever seen. It's funny, it's sad, it's sexy. But one secret may destroy it all ..... This is a fast read, with lots of humor. What starts out as a game, turns into something that is to be treasured ... love. The story is well-written. The characters are dynamic .. especially Veronique. I wish to thank the author / Double Shot Press / Netgalley for the digital copy of CHANCES ARE. The opinion expressed here is unbiased and entirely my own.
