How far will they go for a second chance...
Years ago, Layla Parker's romantic dreams came true. She married her high school sweetheart and settled into a house on his family's ranch to live happily ever after. But sometimes dreams turn into nightmares and when Layla's husband became abusive, she felt there was no way out. It isn't until her father's death over a decade later that Layla gains the courage to leave her marriage. She hopes to find peace living alone, but her dreams of happily ever after died a long time ago.
Cole Lawson has spent years secretly pining for his former best friend. Layla Parker captured his heart sophomore year of high school, but when she married her boyfriend two years later, she and Cole grew apart and have rarely seen each other since. Cole's been a lady killer since the day he realized that his dimpled smile made all the cowgirls swoon, but when he discovers Layla is newly single he's ready to put an end to his womanizing ways and make a serious play for the one who got away.
But soon a dark secret from Layla's past threatens to destroy their shot at forever. Now Cole will have to decide--listen to his heart or to the people warning him that Layla might not be as innocent as she seems.

A Review of Chance and Chaps by Jessie Evans
Heartbreakingly sad and tender - 5+++ stars
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.

Chaps and Chance
When I finished this book I truly was in a puddle of emotion! I don't know how Jessie keeps making these books better with everyone.
Cole and Layla are no exception in their stormy relationship. Ups, downs and intense moments kept me reading until I was done. True love always wins out!
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.
