36502990Title: Take a Chance on Me
Author: Alexa Land
Series: Firsts and Forever #15
Page Count: 369 pages
Genre(s): M/M, Romance
Release Date: October 29, 2017
Reviewer: ~Wendy~
Rating: 4 Stars out of 5


Free-spirited ballet dancer Quinn is sure he made a terrible mistake by agreeing to be Duke’s roommate. The big cop is the most uptight person Quinn’s ever met, and both men begin driving each other crazy from day one. 
Before long though, an undeniable spark of attraction ignites between them. But do opposites really attract? Or will their differences prove to be more than either of them can handle? 
This gay romance is the fifteenth book in Alexa Land’s best-selling Firsts and Forever Series, but each novel is written to stand alone, so jump in anywhere. Note: contains adult language and graphic sex and is only intended for adults.

I am a big fan of this series. Whenever I feel a bit down and in need of a laugh, reading a book from this series, helps to make me feel better.

I am gonna be honest here, and say that this series is also a bit ridiculous and quite OTT at times, but sometimes…that is exactly what I need! I have come to love Nana and her crazy antics. 😛

Now, these books are all standalone stories, but… all characters have recurring roles.

This might get a bit confusing if you jump in somewhere in the middle. I myself didn’t mind being a bit confused, so I jumped in with my favorite book of the series “Sky Blue”. This is the 6 book in the series and I had no problems following the storyline. Of course, after finishing it, I went back and read book 1-5. 😉 So I guess it all depends on the person and their level of  “reading ODC “.

Anyways…I was still halfway through the previous book when I read my GR friend Line’s review. She also informed me, that Quinn had become one her favorite characters in the series and he was just as awesome as Skye.

So I just had to push all books I was reading aside… finish “All I Ever Wanted” and read this one…Them’s the rules!

She was right though…Quinn was pretty freaking amazing!

He was so sweet and crazy and a mess…and damn did he make me laugh. He was the complete opposite of Duke, who’s big quiet, shy…Quinn’s a ballet dancer, working as a go-go dancer, Duke is a cop. Quinn is used to going out, having fun and enjoying some sexy times…Duke is a virgin…These two are nothing alike…yet they fit together perfectly…

I really enjoyed this story…It was sweet and sexy and so much fun…though there were some sad times as well. But don’t worry about the sad parts…cause you know what makes everything better?

Edible Glitter!!!!!!

At least that’s what Quinn thinks and I have to say, that I kind of agree with him here…Glitter rocks!!

So…all in all, another great addition to this awesome series, and I hope Alexa will write many many more. 😀
