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.

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!
Jessie Evans does it again….A Must Read!
Chaps and Chance by Jessie Evans
I just finished reading the most compelling book and I wish there was more to read!
Chaps and Chance was so well written by Jessie Evans that she draws you in the story and keeps you there until the very end of the book when she writes THE END.
I read a lot of books but Jessie Evans has a special way of telling her story in her books. She memorizes the reader and captures your attention and when the end comes you just have to sigh……it’s that good!
EXCELLENT READ and you won’t be disappointed.
Cole and Layla and Rainbow Sprinkles
Jessie's Lonesome Point, TX, series just keeps getting better and better. I know, I say it after each book, but it is absolutely true. When each new installment in the series releases, I know that it's going to have me riveted from the first page, unwilling to do anything but read, and Chaps and Chance delivers in the most wonderful way.
Once I met Cole Lawson, there was no way that I was willing or able to do anything but fly through this book as fast as I could. All of the Lawson brothers are yummy, but Cole, mmmmm, Cole. Hot as heck, sexy as sin, and steadfast to the end, he is the stuff that book boyfriends are made of. He's loved Layla Parker since they were kids, and wants nothing more than to put the smile back on her face that years of living with her abusive husband Wayne took away. He knows that it's not often that a second chance at love comes along, and will do whatever it takes to have the happy ending that they missed out on when they were younger.
Layla is one strong woman. Having survived ten long years of hell at Wayne's hands, she's emerged smarter and tougher. Left with a heart as battered as her body had been, Layla isn't expecting to find love again, but Cole shows her that sometimes the best things are worth waiting - and fighting - for.
"They stared at each other, into each other, until the years and the awkwardness fell away, and for a moment, it was the way it used to be, back when they'd spent hours together, talking and laughing, with only comfortable silences falling between them."
Jessie Evans is one of my go-to authors. She delivers angst, passion, sadness, and joy in equal measure with every book, and I look forward to each one with anticipation. I cannot wait to read Ropes and Revenge, John Lawson's book, and to continue my love affair with Lonesome Point. 5+ 'I love a cowboy' stars for Jessie and this gem of a book.
