Summary

Some say I’m cocky - I say I’m confident.  

Things have always come easy for me; sports, academics...girls. And I’ve used all of that to my advantage the past three years of college. I’ve got it all, or at least I thought I did until Laken walks into my life. 

I've never desired a relationship like my parents have, but there is some mysterious pull I feel toward this brunette I’ve noticed around campus. And with each interaction we have, I long to know her more. Yet the closer we get, the harder she resists and the higher the walls go up. I sense there’s something more - a secret she’s hiding - one she doesn’t trust to share with me yet. But she will, if I have my way, and I’ll do anything if she’ll take a chance on me. On us. 

I grew up hearing the story of how my parents met, their separation, how my dad fought for them, and their happily ever after. I just never expected or wanted to find that for myself. Now that I have, I don’t want to ever let them go.  

But when I’m given the opportunity of a lifetime after graduation, will the offer of my heart be enough for her to accept? Or will I lose her forever?

Cocky Striker

I was so excited about reading Chance Jr’s book and This was wonderful. Chance starts off with the history of being a cocky player until he meets Laken (but don’t worry he’s not sleeping with every in this story- once he meets her there is no one else) Laken’s attitude at their meet cute is what draws Chance’s attention and for the first time he has to be the pursuer. Their chemistry sparks and then he finds out about Ava- Laken’s 3 yr old daughter. - so many ways there could have been a ton of drama in this storyline but the author kept it on the low end. Sweet, sexy, fun and easy. I loved how both Chance and Chance Sr were with Ava. Definitely my new favorite in this CHC world.

Baby C.J. all grown-up

Now this does justice to Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward. Little C.J. is all grown-up and in love. This was an HEA worth waiting for. Evan Grace creates a wonderful continuation of the original story but how long do goats live because Pixie was going strong 20 years after he was introduced. Super Goat. LOL!

Loved it!

I read and listened to this story. Little CJ is all grown up and in college! And what do you know??? He's like his dad Chance Bateman Sr. CJ doesn't do relationships, but he surely did work hard to get a date with Laken. These two gave me all the feels! When CJ found out about who Ava was to Laken, his conflicted feelings were warranted since he was in uncharted territory; and rightly so. I loved how CJ and Laken's relationship progressed and how CJ took to Ava. I also appreciated how involved Chance and Aubrey were with CJ, but at the same time were not overbearing. Laken's relationship with her parents was also something I appreciated. Many books in this genre make the parents the enemy but not so with this one. Supportive parents who want what's best for their children while letting them navigate through life.

Chance Bateman Sr. will forever be my favorite Aussie so seeing him as the father to a grown CJ was amazing! This was one of those stories that stayed with me long after I got to the end. The author did a phenomenal job weaving this book together. I look forward to reading more of her stories.The narrators also did a phenomenal job bringing the story to life. Kai has been a favorite of mine for a while. Lance is a new to me narrator and I look forward to listening to more stories.

Chance Jr and his lady love... Sweet!

I didn't think to get such a big jump into the future, let alone two different ones. I was not disappointed. I like the change and the older Aubrey and Chance Sr. Honestly didn't think we would get a jump so far into their future. I liked that we got that. I missed getting to know Chance's little sister Brie or having a full family gathering of Adele and such, but it was still good. I just really like those Cameo moments. A little secret moment or so for those of us who have read so many of the other Hero club books and all. Love, love, love little Ava! The performers did so good on her. I was a little worried about how Chance Sr was portrayed by the female voice performer. Weird accent. Unidentifiable at times. The rest was great though. Just me being nit picky.

Low angst fun

This was a fun book and I loved how much we saw of the other character from the originator books (Chance and Aubrey). This follows Chance Jr, their child and is a new adult romance. Both people are still in school. However, Chance Jr and Laken had a really good relationship and while Chance was billed as a playboy, he was pretty good once he met Laken. In fact, he was a really great character and I rooted for him throughout the story.

Laken had a past that made her feel like she was not worthy of Chance and I thought that her issues ran a little long. However, when they bantered with each other, I smiled and enjoyed their interactions.

I listened to the audiobook and it was good. I liked both narrators, Kai Kennicott and lance Greenfield- I felt like Lance may have sounded a little old for this young guy but he did a great job with the Australian accent for Chance Sr. Overall, a great listen for a really fun, low angst book.

CJ all grown up!

This is the story of Aubrey and Chance's son, who is in his story year in college. I love Chance Jr and Laken together, lots of romance and they are so 🔥

I would listen to this audiobook for the narrators alone, but the story is seriously so good!!!
