    "One Chance" is the story of Ashley and Jonathan. **MILD SPOILER FILLED RANT AHEAD** Now I have a lot to say about this book. I had read the first two books in this series like 3 years ago, and liked them. But I wasn't the biggest fan of these two, especially the hero- so I kept putting this off. Now, here we are. Basically, our "hero" takes the heroine's virginity in high school, films it, and spreads it to everyone to show "she's his". This leads to her being bullied, humiliated, and almost driven "One Chance" is the story of Ashley and Jonathan. **MILD SPOILER FILLED RANT AHEAD** Now I have a lot to say about this book.

Basically, our "hero" takes the heroine's virginity in high school, films it, and spreads it to everyone to show "she's his". This leads to her being bullied, humiliated, and almost driven to suicide- causing a deep distrust towards male gender. Hence the heroine ends up being super promiscuous (triple figures, her words), picking and discarding men. Apparently, our hero did it to keep other men off. And he showed how much he wanted the heroine by screwing other women, taking them to prom, screwing more women, and waiting many, many years for heroine to re-enter his life so he can pester her into dating him again. I dont like reading about characters who most definitely have an STI (personal pet peeve)- and I didnt believe the "clean" part with how much their other sexual encounters were stressed upon. That being said, this was a "second chance" romance- which made me uneasy. I wish more emphasis was put on dealing with the past, and proving that people have changed than blatant seduction and sex- because I know the author can write FAB sex scenes- but it still didnt make me want to root for the couple because I felt things remained unresolved and she gave in easily. The epilogue was fine. I honestly wish Dale, Wade and Connie's book is written someday- because this was a bummer. Phegh. Unsafe 1.5/5

Ashley thinks Jonathan's idea of dating is a joke, but for four months she agrees and finds he is not the man she has hated, he is becoming the man she loves. Interesting story, Ashley is a bit of a pill in the beginning and I struggled to see what Jonathan initially saw in her. As the story progresses you get it. Had another small storyline that I am anxious to read about in the book.

    I liked the premise of a H who has to overcome so much bad stuff to redeem himself. So, it happened in school but still having sex with the sweet virginal h and bragging about it next morning, and making a sex tape too seemed insurmountable. And I wanted a piece of it. But a bit more sensitivity and lot less sex would have been the way to go. And it disappoints there. The h was completely un-relatable for me. I can take a h who is sexually emancipated but this one gave me the jeebies just imagin I liked the premise of a H who has to overcome so much bad stuff to redeem himself.

But a bit more sensitivity and lot less sex would have been the way to go. And it disappoints there. The h was completely un-relatable for me. I can take a h who is sexually emancipated but this one gave me the jeebies just imagining her going at it. According to her she's been with men ..not in two digits, but three! And.. Ashley wasn’t a virgin. She’d fucked many men, and sometimes, a lot of men at the same time. In the last few years she’d experimented, fucked dirty, and not cared about anyone that she was with. Okay, she's overcoming hurt and humiliation from her past but really this kind of 'therapy' is not something I want to read about. And she's still tight! (Sorry if that sounds un-pc but..) “You’re tight, babe.” “It has been a long time.” “I’m not a small man. How long has it been?” “A couple of months.” *eyeroll* A long time imo would be a bit more. A bit more than that certainly! :p Then the distraction of the others. The guys and girls from the other books meet and meet again, and talk and talk...and bore!

Possessive turn to cruelty which we can say bullying. But in the end, all the suffering seems to nothing. The pain wasn't too painful anymore. It tells that Ashley hate Jonathan in the point that she want to commit suicide because of humiliation done by Jonathan. Back then, all the reason seems so reasonable because of the huge humiliation by someone you trust the most and it says that Ashley suffer from the pain for a long...long time until her point of view of the guy changed a lot. We can see the pain. The sorrow. And we suffer for Ashley. But in the end, her pain seems gone. Gone with the look of how handsome Jonathan to be. And for me, its a big no no. In reality, how handsome the creature to be, if he humiliate you up until you want to kill your self, all you can see was the pain he caused. And it will heal, of course, after a very long time with the very tender treatment. But in this novel, it seems too instant. The hate gone too instant. She forgive him in very short time. hm... disappointed. really.

    Final Score - 5 Smokin' Hot Stars! Oh Jonathan... you bad, BAD BOY! How could you do such an idiotic thing? Granted, you were an adolescent a**hole, but still?! And to someone you desperate wanted and went thru so much trouble for? GRRRR!!! If I was Ashley, he'd still be begging me for another chance - 4 months was just too short of a break for him! I'm glad though that things worked out in the end, however, Dale and Connie. I need to know what happened there - like yesterday! Final Score - 5 Smokin' Hot Stars! Oh Jonathan... you bad, BAD BOY!

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Plot was really weak. So as i understand, guy likes girl. Guy has sex with girl. Girl is virgin. Guy tapes it and shows it to whole high school - to scare off other males from her (wtf?!). Girl is suicidal and goes down spiral for 8 years and fucks everything that moves. So they met again after 8 years. Dude has loved girl whole time and wants her back and to make babies with her. Girl is mad about 10 minutes (has hated him for 8 years before that), then AGREES to date him for 4 months, because Plot was really weak. So as i understand, guy likes girl. Guy has sex with girl.

And that all happens in like first 30% of book and rest of the book is sex and other couple having pseudo problems. The rest of the book after first 30% was kinda pointless and dude did way too little groweling.

    This book was about Jonathan and Ashley. It also was about Dale and Connie so that was cool I though she would have her own book. Either way they all got the guy and are happy.

    This is the first book I have read in this series. Maybe if I had more back story with Ashley I could have understood her very quick forgiveness, but I thought it was a little too quick. If someone hurts you so back you nearly kill yourself that doesn't just go away because he is hot. I liked the sex, but the control could have come out more. Good story. I might back read and have a better opinion, but for now it progressed too quickly from hate to marriage without enough character development for This is the first book I have read in this series.

    Author Sam Crescent does it again… I loved this story and will be reading the first two books in the series… The dynamic between the characters especially the bond between the girlfriends is great… Jonathan betrayed Ashley in the worst way possible, that sent her on a downard spiral in many ways… Jonathan knows he messed up but didn’t know the extent until he started pursuing her again… something that will need him to be as open as possible to show he’s changed.

    It was an ok book, Ashley and Jonathan slept together in high school but then he humiliated her. Now years later, he's trying to win her back. I thought that Jonathan was nice and truly loved her, and he worked hard to get her trust him again. And Ashley did still care about him after all these years. The whole guy's group gossiping thing was a huge turn off for me. The epilogue was very sweet though. It was an ok book, Ashley and Jonathan slept together in high school but then he humiliated her.
