How far will they go for a second chance?

Cole Lawson’s been a lady killer since the day he realized his dimpled smile made all the cowgirls swoon. But when he discovers his high school friend, Layla Parker, is newly single he's ready to make a serious play for the one who got away.

Years ago, Layla Parker's romantic dreams came true. She married her high school sweetheart and settled in to live happily ever after. But sometimes dreams turn into nightmares…

After barely surviving her first love, she’s not looking for romance, but it isn’t long before her rekindled friendship with Cole grows into something more—something so sexy and sweet, neither one of them wants to put on the brakes.

But when a dark secret from the past threatens their shot at forever, Cole will have to decide—listen to his heart or to the people warning him that loving Layla is dangerous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rainbow Sprinkles and Second Chances Wow, Jessie Evans just Wow! I loved Cole from the minute I was introduced to him in Glitter and Grit and was so excited to read more about him in Chaps and Chance. Cole is one of the lovely Lawson men, brothers with Bubba from Saddles and Sin. Cole is the man you want on your side. Not only is he HOT, SEXY, SWEET and LOYAL, but also a man to not mess with. He protects his family and friends, especially the woman that he LOVES. Layla Parker is the woman that Cole just couldn't forget. Yea, he may have the player reputation, but no one comes close to his Layla. Layla was always fond of Cole and had deep feelings for him, but chose her high sweetheart to marry. What started as a beautiful courtship quickly changed into a horror. Layla, running away from her abusive husband, brings her back to Lonesome Point and into the arms of Cole. Their chemistry cannot be denied, and although Layla wants to only be friends soon she cannot deny her lust for Cole. She is done being afraid of loving again and Cole is more than ready for his second chance. Twist and tragedy soon effect their blossoming relationship, and both Layla and Cole are left in limbo. Can Layla and Cole overcome all the obstacles standing in their way and finally have their second chance in love? I love this book! There were so many moments that I was laughing and crying. It was filled with sadness, humor, grief, suspense and second chances in love. Thank you Jessie for once again hitting it out of the ball park!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent series to fall in love with Jessie Evans has an amazing ability to pack a wide variety of emotion in a very well written book. Each new book of hers I read is better than the last. Cole and Layla's story is packed with serious, funny, ugly tears, fear and love. This one you will not be able to put down. Lonesome Point, Texas sounds like an amazing place to be. Looking forward to the next book in the series and my happy reader self can name several more characters I'd like to see get a happily ever after.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved It! I don't know where to start there is so much that I loved about this book. I'll start with Cole, where can myself one of those? The man can cook and he has a great sense of humor then throw in how fiercely he loves, man oh man. The chemistry between him and Kayla whew hot!! Layla, what she has endured and still is makes you feel for her and you want her to get that HEA.This book pulls everything out of you, laughs, tears, and sighs. The build up at the climax of the book holy cow keeps you on the edge of you seat. Plus there was a twist that I didn't see coming that makes me anticipate the next book. I can't say how much I recommend this book. You won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heartbreakingly sad and tender - 5+++ stars A Review of Chance and Chaps by Jessie Evans We met Layla in Reece and Grayson's book. She is a woman that is trying to get away from a very abusive husband. Layla no longer has dreams of peace or happiness, alone or with someone else. She has basically given up and is a shell of the person everyone knew her to be ten years ago. We learn more about what happened in her marriage and the things that she had to do to finally get away from Wayne. He has been laying low for the last couple of months and she has gotten complacent about her safety, but she will soon find out that Wayne has no intention of letting her go. Cole grew up with Layla and attended school with her and Wayne. He has been pining for her since they were sophmores at school and he let his chance slip away. If he had just asked her out before Wayne did, who knows how differently things would have turned out for all of them. Cole and Layla find an instant connection that cannot be denied, even though she is still legally married. But, when secrets from the past pop up and a tragedy happens, will they be able to get past all of that or will things end in a much more permanant way? Make sure you have tissues close by when you read this one. There are some really sad, tearjerker parts, but you really DON'T want to miss this story. I am soooo looking forward to the next book Jessie comes out with. She is just an AMAZING author and has a way with words that draw you in and make you feel like you are right there with the characters. **Complimentary Copy provided by Author for an honest review.**
