Book Review of A Chance For Love

A Chance For Love By D.L. Biranen

Book Description:

Victoria Brown lost her father four years ago. Her stepmother and her stepsister are bent on making her life miserable. Turning her into a pitiful maid, they force her to live a modern day re-enactment of Cinderella. But they don’t know that where there’s a Cinderella, there’s a Fairy Godmother and a Prince Charming who would do anything to bandage the damage in her life.
When an arrogant new student shows up in class, Victoria hates him at first sight. She seeks to avoid him but finds herself partnering with him in solving a mystery revolving around a ghost. And against her will, sparks fly.
Life takes a turn that rips Victoria off her innocence and places her stepmother as her footstool. Once, she’d wanted a chance for love, but all she wants now is revenge. And not even her Prince Charming can stand in her way.
Will she follow her heart and let love win, or will she follow her head and be a slave of vengeance?

My Thoughts:

Following the passing of Victoria’s father, her step-mother and step-sister no longer feel the need to hide their feelings of hatred toward her. Her tiny frame is evident of the physical abuse she endures. Despite the mistreatment she faces from her stepfamily, she still longs for them to love and accept her. Victoria’s step-sister, Cynthia, does all that she can to try to harm Victoria and cause her to lose her school scholarship. Enter Raheem. He’s the new foreigner at the girls’ school and Cynthia’s dying to sink her claws into him. However, her usual tricks do not work on him. Instead, he has set his sights on Victoria. What begins as a friendship slowly turns to more. This story about young love will make you believe in love once more – if you already didn’t.

This book was beyond being a Cinderella story! I stayed up until 3 am trying to finish it. Once I started reading it, I couldn’t stop. It was the best story I’ve read in a long time. To say Victoria went through a lot would be an understatement. Her step-mother and step-sister both hated her and tried all they could to make her life as miserable as possible both at home and at school. The new boy in school, Raheem, is such a great match for Victoria. After everything that she’s been through with the passing of her mother and father, she deserves more happiness in her life. I was also pleased when I read that Raheem’s father made it back safely to his family. I will be reading the other books as well. And I would also love to see more books featuring Raheem and Victoria in the future.

An Excerpt From Cami’s Decision

She felt someone bump into her as they walked past her. She slightly turned her head to the side and saw an evil grin on Leena’s face. “Oops, sorry,” she said in a very non-apologetic way.

Just then Kaci walked down the hallway and bumped into Leena nearly knocking her over into another fellow student. “Oops, sorry,” Kaci said to her with a frown. Her sister was pregnant for crying out loud. What was wrong with Leena Davidson? Did she have nothing better to do but bother people all day long?

“Why you little…”

“You do realize,” Kaci began, cutting her off, “that my sister is pregnant.”

Students were out and about trying to get to class and there were a few teachers around but none that were close enough to hear what was going on. Although Leena could’ve easily put Kaci in her place, she declined since they were out in the open around so many people.

“I don’t care if she’s pregnant,” she whispered to Kaci meaning every word of it.

“Well, then, I suggest you find someone else to mess with because if I ever see you doing that to her again I’ll put you ten feet under.”

A look of surprise came across Leena’s face. “Ten feet, huh?”
“Yeah that way even the dogs won’t find you,” Kaci whispered back to her and then grabbed Cami’s arm. Cami glanced back at Leena and saw a startled look on her face before that all too familiar grin appeared once again.

The Villians of Cami’s Decision ~ Leena & Kelly Davidson

You might love them…
The two sisters may hate everyone around them, but they have a sisterly bond that can’t be broken.
Or you might hate them…
The narcissistic sisters will bully and treat people as horrible as they please. Money can buy them everything after all since they are the Davidsons.
