I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Gwen Stevens had a privileged life until her father spoke three little words that turned her world upside down. “You’re cut off.”
Broke and desperate, Gwen is forced to accept a waitressing job, but this glimmer of hope has a price. As if being a cocktail waitress isn’t bad enough, she has to do it in a dive bar called The Den, and her bad luck doesn’t stop there. She also needs to deal with the new owner, a blue-eyed, self-righteous ass determined to make her life miserable.
Liam Sinclair walked away from the entitlement and obligation his family planned for him, vowing to make his own way in the world…
Adjusting to life as a new business owner, Liam has experienced more than his fair share of setbacks. When his only waitress breaks her leg, his sister takes it upon herself to hire a replacement—a spoiled, self-indulgent hothead with too much makeup and more than enough attitude. Gwen represents the world he’s trying to escape, a world of excess and greed that he was never cut out for.
Appearances can be deceiving, and first impressions aren’t always right…
Despite their apparent differences, the tension between them turns to a fiery passion that neither of them can resist. Together they find balance and learn to appreciate the simpler things in life. But Gwen soon discovers that old habits die hard, and one mistake is all it takes to ruin everything.
Forgiveness must be earned, but even a villain deserves a chance at redemption…
Chance at Redemption is a fun opposites attract/ boss & employee romance. The 3rd in the Madison Square series catches us up with Liam Sinclair, brother and bar co-owner to Madison of Choosing Happy. It’s Madison’s decision to hire Gwendolyn, a newly cut-off poor little rich girl, that shakes up Liam’s world.
Gwen is not the most likable or empathetic character, not at first. Harris does a great job painting her as a shallow and self absorbed girl who immediately gets dubbed as “princess” by Liam. But is she beyond redemption? She brings with her some drama that might make you think so, and she immediately manages to get under Liams’ skin. It took me a while to warm up to her as she remains petulant and a bit hoity-toity considering her circumstances. Liam’s been contending with his very own family issues with regards to career expectations so they are able to relate on this level as well. As it is Liam provides support and encouragement and bridges the gap between them. The quickly budding relationship is fueled by strong physical desire and an emotional connection to match this passion.
Gwen’s transformation may be prompted by her father and further inspired by Liam.
I adore Liam for being accepting and open minded, but he isn’t always convinced that Gwen’s changed her ways. There’s a slight bit of angst, activities that drives a wedge between them and test their faith in each other. All in all, this is an enjoyable and easy read. The writing flows, their connection is well depicted and in the end I found myself really rooting for them.
