Sometimes the biggest risk is playing it safe.

Gen Richards is done being “the helpless blind girl.” Resurrecting her high-school bucket list that begins with “kiss a total stranger” seems just the thing…until she finds herself in a panty-melting lip lock with her big brother’s adrenaline-junky best friend.

Chance Anderson thrives on adrenaline, but Genny’s the one risk he’s won’t take. His recklessness a decade ago landed her in the hospital and ejected him from her life. He’s bad for her and everyone knows it—especially her big brother.

Chance reluctantly helps Gen complete her bucket list in order to keep her out of trouble. But running through a freezing fountain, playing spin the bottle while fending off a mad horde of stinging insects, and skinny dipping with homicidal attack swans don’t hold a candle to the real danger: falling for the one person he can never have.

"Sexy, smart, fun! A fabulous new voice in contemporary romance!"--Sophie Jordan, New York Times bestselling author

A wonderfully sweet, touching and fun to read book. I love it when I get to experience stories like this one where I didn't know the author, didn't know what to expect and got a huge grin at the end.

“Nothing but you.”

Gen Richards is a smart, strong, independent woma ...more

More than pleasantly surprised by Chance of a Lifetime!
First time reading this author (I think…) and it won’t be my last seeing as I have 2 more Anderson brothers to get to know…better!

Marissa Clarke really had me at the blurb. A blind heroine deciding to take matters of ...more

4 - "I won't peek if you don't." Stars!

Marissa Clarke reeled me in, and kept me on the hook from start to finish with Chance of a Lifetime, this is one of those books that you pick up expecting a light and fluffy read, and although the author gives you that, there is an awful lot of thought that wen ...more

When Gen's young co-worker dies from chocking on a mint, she decides that life is short and she wants to complete her bucket list from when she was 15. Gen is blind and has lived under the constant protection of her brother and parents- never letting her live an independent life. When at her regular ...more

**ARC provided by the publisher for an honest review***

Chance of a Lifetime was a wonderfully told second chance romance. This story has such a feel good feeling to it. I loved both Gen and Chance and they were perfect together. Chance saw the real Gen and did not make her feel disabled. I loved the ...more

By Aly May 14, 2018

Big brother's best friend trope with a little twist with a blind heroine. I was glad to learn I misunderstood the blurb and Chance wasn't the one responsible for Gen's disability and she was born with it. The accident it talked about refer to an other thing that happened when she was a teenager wher ...more

Original review on Julalicious Book Paradise

This one is definitely my favourite of the trilogy. I didn't know whether or not I would love Chance, but oh, I did love him.

He was probably the brother I didn't know very well. Each book brought it more about the brothers, but I felt like not much had bee ...more

This was perfection.

I loved Gen and Chance. She's sassy and sarcastic and I love her view on things . Chance is loyal and passionate and they're so perfect together. I absolutely loved being in both of their heads, reading them figure things out.

It was fun, flirty, and just perfectly ...more

Gen Richards has lived with her over-the-top, over-protective, over-bearing older brother, Walter, and parents. See, she’s blind which in their minds means she’s helpless and can’t do anything on her own without them there to protect her. Little do they realize just how truly independent and so-far- ...more

Marissa Clarke has made my list of favorite authors. I will be honest and admit to not reading the book blurb before I started reading Chance of a Lifetime. Thus, I had no idea what to expect. I was surprised the heroine was blind and I had no idea if her blindness was a result of something the hero ...more

I'm always happy to pick up a book by Marissa Clarke and her Anderson Brothers series has so far has brought me pretty much all I could ask to find in a lighter contemporary romance. Chance of a Lifetime was no exception; romantic, fun and sexy, heart warming and at times quite emotional, Chance and ...more

This was my first book from this author and I have to tell you that I really enjoyed this book. Gen Richards is blind and has a family that wants to keep her wrapped up inside a bubble. However after a coworker dies suddenly she decides that she is done with that and pulls out her bucket list that s ...more

I am ashamed to admit that I've never read a book from Marissa Clarke before. I did see the release of the book that preceded Chance Of A Lifetime, and I don't know why I didn't pick it up for review. Ma ...more

Great story about Gen Richards, who has been blind all her life and Chance Anderson the guy who has had a crush on her for a long time. There was an “incident” in the past and he has been not allowed near her since she was about 15//16 years old so Gen went from hero worshipping him to hating him. S ...more

By Bette November 06, 2015

I LOVED this one. This book was so much more than I expected. Not that I didn't expect a lot from this author. The prior two Anderson Bros. books have been fun lighthearted reads. This one took the emotional level up about 10 notches while still giving us the fun part. Chance is the adrenaline junki ...more

"How could this have happened? Of the thousands of people she could have randomly kissed in the city, it had to be Chance."

I love a good friends to lovers story! This one is a great one!

Dear readers, if you've come this far to check this book out, prepare to encounter one of the most endearing and "heroic" heroines you've ever come across in a work of fiction.
