Book Review: A fighting chance

Cover Synopsis
Former Marine Tyler Bradford just returned to his native Texas after a long stint overseas. As he’s driving home to see his family and meet his niece for the first time, another driver runs him off the road. When that car ends up in a pasture, Tyler’s rescue instincts kick in. He didn’t expect to find a sexy woman from Boston, and rescuing her wouldn’t be the only thing on his mind.

Tiffani was called back home to Texas to settle her deceased mother’s estate. It was the last place on earth she wanted to be. She’d put thousands of miles between her and her horrible childhood memories, and didn’t think she’d ever find herself back in the Lone Star State. A twist of fate put her in the path of Tyler Bradford and turned her life upside down. Again. Can she finally forgive herself for her troubled past, or will the stubborn walls she’s erected around her heart keep everything and everyone she’s ever cared about at arm’s length?

A Fighting Chance is the third book in the erotic romance Chances Are Series by C.D. Taylor.

Tiffani Cooper

Poor Tiffani, a woman raised in a house where her dad was a drug dealer and an abuser.  She thought she would escape her whole past by moving to Boston, meeting the “Perfect” man, engaged and planning her beautiful wedding, which may not be perfect after all. However her mum passes away and she is forced to go back to her parents home to sell it.  Nothing has been plain sailing for Tiff and on this trip she meets Tyler Bradford, a sexy ex marine.
Her character is the main one throughout the book, I felt so much pain for her and what she has been through in her life, the flash backs really helped to understand her and why she is the woman she has moulded herself into.  However Tiff had big secrets I didn’t even expect, she definitely kept me thinking.

Tyler Bradford

Tyler is an ex marine who joined the forces after the attacks of 9/11.  He is of course tall, sexy and a romantic.  Who wouldn’t want him, unfortunately he was not enough for his wife.
Tyler’s wife cheated on him while he was away and then found out she was pregnant, due to the time scales Tyler never knew if the baby was his, and he never found out as his wife committed suicide before he came home.
This made me feel sorry for his character he had everything, but it was all torn away from him in such a short space of time.  He is a gentleman throughout the book, but a wild man when it comes to the bedroom, which of course has Tiff weak at the knees.
His actions speak so much louder in the book than his words.  Both characters have such a traumatic back story that I wasn’t surprised that they would be brought together.


I have previously read Left to chance by C.D. Taylor last year, which was sent to me however I never got a chance to review it, so when I was sent the third book in the series to review I could not say no.  The great thing about these books are they are based on different characters, therefor it does not matter which order you read them.
I was captivated from the beginning, if I had a full day to read it this past week I would have.  The plot was well thought out, the characters always left me wanting to know more, the secrets, twist and turns these characters went through, were definitely what kept me hooked from the beginning.

A couple coming together in a clash, will they survive the 2 weeks they have together, and who will come along to destroy them?

I have seen reviews where people have said it is a basic love story, and it is.  But I loved it.  It got straight to the point and was a good read, we all have different reviews on books, and this one did not disappoint with it’s content.

Genre- Erotica, Fiction, Romance
Definitely lived up to the previous book.  The author has created 3 amazing books in this series,  for those of you wanting to get lost in a couples love story, as well as all the hot and steamy parts in between.

About the Author:

CoverC.D. Taylor began writing as an item to check off her bucket list. She resides in the southernmost part of Illinois, right on the mighty Mississippi river. She enjoys the quiet country life with her husband, son and the many farm animals that make up the rest of the family. C.D. decided that farm life was just a little too mundane, so she started writing erotica to spice things up, so far so good. C.D. entered cosmetology school right out of High School and practiced the art of hair styling for 12 years. When she isn’t writing, she can usually be found sitting around a table making people laugh. She has always wanted to be a standup comic. She loves pulling practical jokes, dresses up in a costume every Halloween and believes that dancing is the key to a happy life (even if you aren’t a good dancer). She believes that life shouldn’t be taken too seriously, we will never get out alive anyway. More than anything, C.D. is a kid at heart, she doesn’t believe in bedtimes, eating everything on her plate, or having ice cream only for dessert. Her favorite quote is by Dr. Seuss…”Why fit in, when you were born to stand out.”
