Chances, a Puerto Rican Love Affair is book three in Kim Knight’s romance set in paradise series, but each book can be read as a stand alone. It’s smooth pace, paired with a few insanely suspenseful scenes makes it a very easily devoured book! The characters are realistic, memorable, and relatable, especially Gabby the main character. Along with her bestie in Spain Valentino, and her new found girlfriends in Puerto Rico Pricilla and Sonia. Then there’s Chris, the questionable long distance cheater, and Mateo the family man with great business potential that meets Gabby’s eye while traveling for work. Each character is drawn up well, and quickly wiggles their way into your heart.
Gabby is a real estate agent, and after having a rough patch and breaking off her long distance relationship with Chris, she decides to take a leap and apply for a short term job in Puerto Rico. It’s just the opportunity for her to throw herself into work in a different setting, and to have a change of pace to clear her head. Her boss supports her decision to apply, as she’s perfect for the job. She’s nervous, but nails her interview and is soon packing her bags.

They’re pull to one another is passionate, it’s the start to beautifully chance at a real soul connecting relationship with so much potential.
However, not everything is peaches and cream in Mateo’s life… which very quickly escalates into deadly trouble ahead.
