TAKING CHANCES by Tara Manderino

Abie Halloway is a PR person who puts herself totally into her work. In trying to obtain her goal for a higher position, she sets her sights on getting Tyler Davidson (a country singer) to perform live at a small gala she's in charge of. Tyler Davidson has his reasons for not accepting small engagements but Abie is relentless. Tyler's heart is in the ranch he owns where troubled children can come for a two week stay. Now, because of Abie, he's in danger of loosing that ranch. There is an attraction between them. So will this be the event that draws them closer or will it sever it for good?

I'll start by saying that I really like the cover of Taking Chances. That's what originally drew me to want to read the book. The story was enjoyable and easy to read. I really liked Tyler and felt like he was fully developed. Abie, however, was not a character that was particularly endearing to me. I did like her more toward the end but unfortunately never really seemed to connect with her. The ending was cute but I felt like it was wrapped up a little too quickly. I did enjoy seeing the ranch, meeting the kids and seeing the impact it made in their lives. It was interesting to learn about Tyler's background and what motivated him to do what he did. There was an underlying message of faith and reliance upon the Lord, which I always appreciate. Overall it was good story. If your looking for a light and easy read, Taking Chances just might fill the bill.
