Summary

One dirty-talking detective and one feisty crime lab technician collide in the second installment to the sizzling NOLA Heart series! Mixing business with pleasure just got a little hotter down in the Big Easy ...

Nathan Danvers has cultivated a certain, sexy reputation among the ladies in New Orleans. As a former marine and current detective for the New Orleans P.D., Nathan is just fine with being the guy women take home to bed, but not the guy they take home to meet the parents. It’s exactly what he wants--until he spots the black-haired beauty, Jade.

Jade Harper is over men. After four years too many with her ex, she’s ready for a fresh start. Goodbye Miami; hello New Orleans. Everything is perfect, including her new job with the NOPD--until she meets Nathan Danvers. Jade isn’t looking for Mr. Right--hell, she’s not even looking for Mr. Right Now--but this hot cop has a way of blurring the lines between lust and love. Will he tempt her to take a chance? Or will the shadows lingering in Nathans dark eyes prove that some closely guarded secrets are better left hidden?

    This is my first full-length novel by Maria Luis. My prior experience with Luis' writing is her ongoing weekly serialized novel, Breathless; which I have found impressively fun and well-written. My intention was to read the first NOLA book prior to reading Take a Chance on Me, but this book stands nicely on its own.

    For me, it took until the 40% mark for the story to really pick up. That first 40% was spent building up some of the back stories, potential romance, and set up the murder investigation. Maybe that's the norm, but it felt a bit drawn out. At the same time, the story was immediately inundated with some entertainingly funny moments of misunderstandings, internal monologues, and witty banter. I was immediately endeared to both main characters. When I hit the 40% mark, I was fully invested and needed to see how the romance and mystery played out.

    I am extremely impressed with Maria Luis' humor, details and overall writing skills. I enjoyed how the book supplied some light mystery/suspense with the romance and how each was handled. Ultimately, I loved the characters and rooted for their well-deserved happily-ever-after. This is definitely a book I would recommend and I, personally, will be making sure I tackle her well-reviewed back list. (I voluntarily read an advanced copy of Take a Chance On Me. This review is my honest and unbiased opinion.)
