Synopsis: When Victoria Rivera got married two years ago, she thought she was going to get her happily ever after. Instead, she ended up divorced at twenty-five. Heartbroken and lost, she packed up her bags and moved away from her family and the only life she's ever known for a fresh start. She is ready for a change and new opportunities that come her way. Victoria is definitely not looking to find love. She doesn't want to get burned again. But then she meets Jared through mere happenstance and little by little he gets under her skin and in the way of her plans.

Can she learn to open herself up again and give love a second chance?

Sometimes what you are not looking for finds you anyway.
Favourite quote: "Circumstances shouldn't always set your happiness, sometimes you have to look within your heart. Love conquers all."  
 
WOW! This book was absolutely amazing! I was not expecting to love it as much as I did at all! I thought that I knew what was going to happen in it but the author completely took me by surprise! I found myself wanting to read one more chapter and then like an hour later I would have read like 7 more chapters! The plot was so fast and I would have loved for it to have went a bit slower! I looked at my Kindle and I was only like 20% through it and then I would look again and I would be like 50% through it lol! The plot of this book was so amazing! You felt your heart breaking and then mending again and then breaking again! I personally went through a lot of emotions during this book and I even teared up at the end! The characters were also amazing! Victoria was someone who was so normal and she reminded me of people that I know! I connected with her instantly and I just enjoyed her character! I also felt so sorry for her as she went through a lot in this book! Jared was smoking hot! I absolutely loved him! He was perfect for Victoria and I loved how protective he was of her and that he was always there for her! Jared and Victoria's relationship did develop quite quickly but I think that this was because the book is told from different months so time has obviously passed that we didn't get to read about! I also really enjoyed Happenstance being told from both Victoria and Jared's point of views as we got to see their feelings for each other develop from both of their perspectives! I am dying for the next book in this series and I adore the cover! Big thank you to M.J. Abraham for an ARC of Happenstance and also Fern for asking me to be on the Blog Tour!
 
Happenstance (A Second Chance, #1)
 
 Excerpt - Victoria's POV!
 
“Another round?” he asks, holding up his shot glass.

“Yeah!” We clink glasses and take a shot. But another round turns into another and a few more after that. At some point, I don’t even know what I’m having.
“What is this again?” I lean forward and squint at my glass, because it’s starting to get fuzzy.
“A Wet Pussy,” he says.
 “What!” I laugh. “Liar!”
“No, I swear. That’s what it’s called!”
 
"Sounds like my kind of drink. That’s something I definitely want to have!” I belt out a loud laugh.
 
“I can arrange that a.s.a.p.,” he whispers in my ear. I lean against him and give him a peck on the neck. My legs are suddenly really heavy and I can feel the blisters from earlier that week come back.
“My feet hurt. Time to take off my shoes.”
 
I bend down to remove the straps and almost topple over. Why are my feet so far away? “Alright, sexy. I think it’s time to take you home,” he says wrapping my arm over his shoulder to steady me.
"Home! But it’s so early!” I pout. I wonder if I look as hot as Blondie does when I pout. “I want more shots. Lots and lots of ‘em!”

Steven laughs. “Ok, I’ll get you more. At the after party.”
