#ARCReview Take A Chance On Me by Lea Coll


Title: Take A Chance On Me

Series: All I Want #6, Standalone

Author: Lea Coll

Genres: Small Town Romance

Tropes: Single Father

Release Date: 21 May 2020




I had no idea when Sadie Cole caught my eye, that she would also steal my heart. My daughter’s new dance teacher with her jet black hair and haunting blue eyes intrigued me. Her tight outfits and bare skin taunted me. Most importantly, she was amazing with my daughter.

But Sadie’s reputation proceeded her… and I couldn’t afford any entanglements that would cost me custody of my daughter.

The more I spent time with her the more I realized the rumors were wrong— the town was wrong. I wanted to be the man she could count on. When what’s best for my daughter and what’s right for Sadie are in direct conflict, I hope I make the right choice.


I left my hometown right after high school to escape a scandal. Returning home, seeing the way they all still looked at me, I realized coming back was a mistake. Until sexy, single dad, Tanner Green glanced my way.

Those blue eyes saw too much, they looked right through me in search of the truth.

His kind heart and stacked body tempted me to stay and face the rumors. But I’ve never let anyone get that close—especially a cop, with the sweetest daughter in the world, because my secrets ruined everything and everyone.

With him by my side things could be different… his love was worth taking the chance.

“Take a chance on me” was my first book from Lea Coll. It was quite an introduction to be honest! Single-parent is one of my favorite tropes, so I couldn’t pass this book and I’m glad that I didn’t. Tanner and Sadie’s story was a real winner!!

Sadie Cole had a rough life so far. Growing up with her alcoholic mother and her series of questionable boyfriends, her childhood wasn’t the best. Then something happened in senior year and from then on, she’s been a pariah in her small town. A decade after the incident she’s back again to help her mother makes ends meet, working two jobs to pay for her debt.

Tanner never though he’ll be a single father so early in life, but he couldn’t change his little girl for the world. Rylan is his heart and he’ll do anything for her, even attend her dance classes! What he didn’t anticipated was to feel attracted to Rylan’s dance teacher, Sadie. She’s infamous in the small town and with him being a cop he hears things involving her.

Sadie is resigned in her life of solitude. She can’t do anything since people judge her only by hearing her name. Tanner is the first to give her the benefit of the doubt. He’s the first one that wants to get to know the real her, despite the rumors. Little Rylan is so cute and gave me the purest emotions! Sadie and Tanner’s relationship has its ups and downs. Both have things in their lives happening. She has to escape her mother’s emotional guilt trip and he has to do the best for his little girl.

Their story gave me the perfect feel-good vibes. I was invested in their HEA from the start and I was eagerly waiting for it. I mean I stayed awake just to finish the book because I wanted to see them happy after all! If you are looking for a single-father romance with feel-good vibes and the right amount of drama to keep you going, then you just found it!!!
