Review of Chance for the Win by Zach Jenkins


I received this book as an ARC for an honest review. 

In this book we meet Chance and Manuel (Manny). Manny is a author trying to get his duel language children's book published. He has gotten rejection after rejection and realizes if this latest publisher doesn't want his book then he will need to find a temp job just to have food and a roof over his head. One day while sketching at the park this man sits next to him on the park bench while his son is playing. They get to talking and during the discussion Chance offers him a job as his son David's new nanny. This is not the job Manny was originally looking for but a chance to spend more time with Chance sign him up. If only everything was as easy as that first meeting. 

The first time Chance sees Manny on the park bench he wonders if their is a chance he could possibly have a chance with this beautiful man. When he finds out he needs a job he thinks now here is the way to spend more time with him but not have to go public. Chance knows the more time he spends with Manny the more he wants but as a NFL quarterback he also knows going public is not an option for him right now. He always told himself for the right guy he would come out and tell the world just to be with him. However when Manny asks for just that a chance for them to be public Chance is afraid and just isn't sure. He wonders will he loose the man of his dreams over fear?

This is a great love story. It shows how stereo types will keep people from having something amazing. Sometimes you have to take a leap for love and this isn't just a gay or gender thing it is a love thing. I think that this is an amazing love story that will have you hooked from the first word to the very end. I had never read M/M books before trying Zach's second book. This author will have you seeing the love story not seeing the gender or whether these guys are gay or straight. Check out this book as well as others he has written.
