Avery Sparks is a master at controlling chaos - and she gets plenty of opportunities as fire chief and head of emergency management in her hometown of Chance, Nebraska. The only thing she can't seem to control are her feelings when she's around Jake Mitchell, the man who was her first everything the night of their high school graduation. But Jake was so quick to leave Chance - and Avery - behind that she swore she'd move on.
While Avery's job is to minimize drama, Jake embraces the chaos of an emergency. After enlisting in the Army National Guard, Jake became a nationally recognized leader in disaster recovery. Yet a life on the road has left him restless. So when a class-four tornado wreaks havoc on Chance, he's eager to return home - and to the woman never far from his mind.
Now, Avery and Jake must team up to help their hometown weather a siege of violent storms. But it's clear to them both that nature isn't the only force they'll have to reckon with. Will Avery and Jake's whirlwind love affair be an all-new disaster - or can they recover from their stormy past to build a future together?

I LOVE small town romance!!!
Jake and Avery have a somewhat complicated non-relationship. Whenever they were together, from high school until now, the chemistry between them was sizzling. Those kisses they shared over the years were fire-starters! Too bad he'd always leave town after they happened. The conflict between Avery and Jake's parents was very upsetting. I understood why they did it but it was a terrible thing to do to her.
Small town romances are as special as the towns they come to life in. Chance, Nebraska is one of those special towns and the people who live there are great. I love how the town gathered to put the pieces back together after the twister.
This is book one in the new series Taking Chances and it's another huge hit for this amazing author. Erin Nicholas is a master at writing about small-town America. I can't wait to get to know more of the residents of Chance, Nebraska.
Fantastic! Erin Nicholas has such a gift that every story is my favorite. This story is magical, it is full of heart, humor, hope and HEA. It made me hot and happy at the same time, and I could not put this down. As the small town of Chance is destroyed by a tornado and rebuilt by the community. We meet this close knit community and are introduced to such a great variety of characters and potential book boyfriends that it makes me smile to think, who will be next. With the fun, flirty banter, of our main characters, to the fireworks of their first kiss, and the thrill of their passion, there is a sprinkle of Nicholas magic that brings true love to life for the reader. I was swept away by this story. Loved it! Highly Recommended!
