BLURB: Left at the altar by his long-time lover, Spencer, and in desperate need of quality health insurance, Dane Archer can’t say no when his best man and best friend, Gideon DeLuca, steps in. But Dane and Gideon have history, tangled and passionate and complicated.
After seventeen years of cat and mouse, Gideon has realized Dane isn’t the kind of man who ever wants to be caught, and he’s stopped playing Dane’s game.
For Dane, it’s never been a game, but sexual fidelity isn’t his strong suit. Love is too beautiful for limits, something he’s never been able to get Gideon the control freak to understand. Now Dane has nothing but limits, including the timeline on his paper-only marriage to Gideon.
Gideon’s the only person Dane trusts enough to lean on, and Gideon will do anything to get Dane through this crisis. Anything but fall for Dane again.
Living together forces Dane and Gideon to stop circling and face what’s been between them all these years. They just don’t know if they have the power or the time to make things right.
What they do know is that they’re not ready for it to be over.
Take a Chance on It is the third book in the Ready or Knot series. Although it is a beautiful and moving story on its own, I think the best is to read the books in order, to get a better understanding of the dynamics of the four superfriends, and especially the unique and complex connection between Dane and Gideon.
My favorite type of series is where I meet a group of friends and each of them gets their own story. I enjoy getting to know them, but also see the way they interact with each other, the way each of them is shown in a different light in all the different perspectives. This way we understand more clearly that everyone is a hero, everyone has their own story, and everyone has their own reasons for the way they behave. After reading about Dane and Gideon’s relationship in the previous books, I was truly excited to read their story. And what a story I got… taking the serious subject matter, KA Mitchell created a moving, heartbreaking and also uplifting way to show these two guys what they truly mean to each other. This is a layered, complicated relationship with feelings ingrained so deep, so natural, that it takes a life threatening event and unordinary circumstances to bring them to the surface, to force both Dane and Gideon to face their true emotions.
The story is wonderfully written. The characters and their struggles are beautifully portrayed. However, I have mixed feelings. I enjoyed every minute of the book but I’m left a bit uncertain and a bit frustrated to be honest. I feel that I miss important chunks of this story. I also would have liked to read an epilogue. This book feels a HFN but both MCs deserve a big HEA. I’m just hoping for one more book to see what happens to these amazing guys. I highly recommend this story and the whole series!
