Series: Willow Creek #4
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.

I just finished Take A Chance and I loved it. This is the final in the Willow Creek Series and it ended really well. This is Hayes and Arden’s story. As you know Maddox, Mathias, Ezra and Hayes make up the band Willow Creek. Arden is Sadie’s friend and co-worker and we met her in Sadie and Ezra’s book. Hayes was already smitten when he met her but she is hesitant and has every reason to be. She has a little girl, 3 year old Mia and is divorced from a psycho/abusive ex husband so I totally get it. Hayes was also a playboy so its hard to take him seriously when he says he wants her, she cant just think about herself, she has her daughter to think about to but you cant help what the heart wants!
“The night we spent together had been one of the best of my whole life, but I was scared. Terrified, really, because what I felt for him was so potent that I knew if given the chance it could grow into something monumental.”
Who doesnt want to be in love with a hot rock star? But I loved Hayes because he was sweet, caring, funny and damn, he could growl good!
“You’re mine, Arden,” he growled, pulsing inside me. “Not because I own you, but because you own me.”
Be still my beating heart!
I enjoyed their chemistry, you could really feel it from the start. There are some obstacles in their way that I expected and I am ok with that. It brought alot of depth to their story, a togetherness that made it more relatable.
“You will never, not ever be a burden to me. And yes, this is still a new relationship for the both of us but when something’s right it just is. Let it be and stop questioning every little thing. I’m here and I love you and I’m not going anywhere.” He pressed his lips against my forehead tenderly. “I’ve waited a long time to give my heart to someone, and at times I never thought I would, but its yours Arden, and I never want it back.”
If you haven’t picked up the series, you really should. Even though these are stand alone books, you would get much more if you read them in order. I highly recommend it!
