Layla’s Chance by Mika Jolie



Can a fling with the world’s hottest rock star become real love?

I took a few days to search my soul and, in the process, I found him.
Chance Santos.
He’s charming. Drop dead gorgeous.
In his arms, I’m rediscovering who I am. And who I want to be.
We’re a fleeting moment in time. An erotic madness.
He’s much too young. Too spontaneous.
The opposite of everything that I thought was right for me.
He’s also everything I never knew my heart craved.
Logic screams for me to walk away.
But I can’t.
Is one amazing weekend enough for forever?


My review:

I found this book in Kindle Unlimited and had to read it. Layla is a Chicago lawyer who has dedicated her life to her career. Anticipating being made partner, she is stunned to learn in a meeting – on her 40th birthday – that the younger associate she had been mentoring was promoted to partner instead. Needing some time away to recoup and do some soul searching, she flies to Martha’s Vineyard for the weekend. She goes out to a local club and meets Chance. He is 13 years younger but she is trying to be spontaneous and embrace life, at least for the weekend. One night turns into a weekend, which then turns into a sort of existential crisis for Layla. She’s been trying to fit into a single, professional box her whole life and was a slave to the “should be” instead of who she was and what she wanted. Chance helps her to open up to following her heart, in many aspects of her life.

I enjoyed this book a lot. It seemed short, but then again any book is too short if I love the characters. Layla and Chase moved quickly, but this wasn’t exactly an instalove book either. Layla wanted – and needed – to take the time to figure herself out before jumping into a relationship, especially with a famous musician. Chase may be 27 but he isn’t a wild, partying rock star. He is actually quite reserved and grounded. He and Layla have an incredible bond. And the epilogues are beautiful.
