Release Blitz: Take A Chance by Micalea Smeltzer

Title: Take a Chance
Series: Willow Creek #4
Author: Micalea Smeltzer
 Release Date: August 25, 2015


I had life all figured out.

Married with a baby on the way I stupidly believed that things were perfect.

But then the good guy I fell in love with turned out to not be as good as I thought.

I was left alone to pick up the pieces of my life and provide for my daughter.

And then I met him.


The bad boy that just might not be so bad.

Three years after her husband walked out on her Arden James is struggling to make ends meet as a single mom. Despite it all, she knows she’s better off with her ex out of the picture, and so is her daughter.

Josh Hayes—player, jokester, and very naughty boy—is the guitar player for the band Willow Creek. He’s used to living the fast life, but suddenly it doesn’t appeal to him anymore, and he has his sights set on the fiery Arden.

Despite their undeniable chemistry, Arden isn’t sure she wants to invite a man into her life that has never been in a committed relationship before. But Hayes is determined to prove to her that there’s more to him than meets the eye. He just needs Arden to take a chance.

4.5 Star Review by Jen Skewes

Take A Chance is the final installment in the Willow Creek series.  I am so sad to see this series come to an end.  I loved getting to know each member of the band and the women that they fell in love with.  Each member has their own unique story to tell.  From first love, to second chances, to best friends falling for each other.  And now it’s time for Hayes and Arden to find their own happily ever after. The bad boy of the band and the single mother who has a wall around her heart and whose main priority is her little girl.  Micalea Smeltzer did not disappoint.  As a matter of fact I feel like she saved the best for last.  Because Joshua Hayes had my heart from the very beginning and may just be my favorite member of Willow Creek.

Hayes is known as the bad boy of the group, having a reputation with the ladies.  But after spending some time with Arden he is completely smitten.  And not just with Arden but her adorable little girl as well.  He will do everything he can to prove to Arden that he has changed and no longer wants the lifestyle he used to live.  He wants to settle down and will prove to her that it is worth taking a chance on him.

Arden is a single mother who loves her daughter more than anything in this world.  Mia is her number one priority and she will do anything to protect her.  Her ex husband left her while she was pregnant with Mia.  But honestly she is better off without him, but regardless everything that happened with him has caused her to construct a wall around her heart, making it difficult for anyone to get in.  Hayes has made it no secret how much he wants her.  He asks for one date and see where it goes from there.  She can’t deny the chemistry between them or how sexy and adorably sweet he is, but she still hesitates to let her guard down.  Will she finally decide that giving Hayes a chance may not be so bad after all?

I just loved this story.  It was sweet and sexy with a little bit of drama.  Hayes was just perfect.  I think from the moment at his birthday party I fell in love with him. He is swoon worthy and sexy but at the same time an adorable goofball.  I am not sure which relationship I loved more.  The one he had with Arden or the bond that he formed with her little girl Mia.  My god Mia was a precious little girl and I found myself with a big grin on my face whenever they shared a moment together.  I was completely swooning.  The way he loved and cared for her was just so sweet, it gives me goose bumps just thinking about it. 

But his relationship with Arden was one that will just melt your heart.  He was out to prove to her that he changed.  That he was no longer the bad boy that she thought he was.  And boy did he prove it.  He was just an amazing person.  The way he loved and protected Arden.  The sweet moments they shared together, the words he spoke to her.  It’s just the little things that make you smile and melt.  I felt like I was Arden falling in love with him each time she did.  And I loved Arden.  She was an amzing mother and just a fantastic heroine.

I loved watching the two of them fall in love.  I loved seeing them both grow, especially Arden.  It took a lot for her to finally let someone in and break her walls down.  But she did it.  She gave love another chance and in the end she won big time.  This book was the perfect ending to this series.  Not only did we get Arden and Hayes’ story but we got to catch up with the rest of the crew as well.  They were all a big part of this story and I loved that.  The epilogue was just perfect.  As always Micalea did an amazing job.  She is a fantastic writer who always makes me feel with her characters.  I laughed and cried with these characters and at one point my heart was scared for them as well.  See all the feels with this one.  What a great way to end this series.  I will miss every one of these characters.
