A Chance at Forever by Melissa Jagears

The Book ✯✯✯


Melissa Jagears' newest Teaville Moral Society is a sweet addition to her historical romance series. It reads well as a standalone because I didn't even realize I had missed other love stories. A Chance focuses on Mercy and Aaron. Aaron was a mean-spirited child that focused his hurt into range and teased his fellow students mercilessly.  Mercy has one hand, and even with only one hand she was happy and loved.

Though the language never became explicit, it is important to note that Aaron has a flashback to the sexual abuse he suffered at the hands of his uncle. And while it makes his bully years understanding, it just didn't fully click for me. 

Aaron was a wonderful POV to be in. And Mercy, unable to let go of the past for most of the book, sounded weak, small, and annoying. And then they fall in love. While the way that happens appears natural, everything leading up to it felt discombobulated. 

Even with those complaints, A Chance at Forever was a sweet, clean, Christian romance to cuddle up with on a Sunday.

Thank you to NetGalley, Melissa Jagears, and Bethany House Publishers for this free ARC in exchange for an honest review.
