From the Back Cover
Step into Limehouse Wharf, the new, uber-luxury apartment building in Canary Wharf where celebrities who have had ‘work’ done can hole up until they have healed and which is about to see its most glamorous and scandalous Christmas yet.
Staying there over the festive period is Melody Down, an actress whose career is in tatters after too much plastic surgery and who has fled LA to get her body and her boyfriend back. But is a ‘well-meaning’ friend about to sabotage all of Melody’s Christmas wishes?
Meanwhile, Aniela Fatyga, the nurse in residence, finds herself falling for the unlikely Jon Jordan, an assassin for hire who is also convalescing there. Will her feelings be reciprocated or will their sizzling relationship remain purely physical? And who is he on the run from?
And then there’s oligarch Grigor Khalofsky, the owner of Kensington football team, whose legendary Christmas party is about to get a whole lot more exciting when murder, blackmail and scandalous revelations decide to pay a visit along with Santa.
This was Lucie’s book for January as part of the #12booksin12months reading challenge.
So for my first book of the reading challenge I decided to veer away from my normal crime-filled bookshelves and try a different genre. Bad Chance caught my eye because it had a sense of the romance you find in a girly book but also had something else that would add a bit of extra spice to the story! I wasn’t disappointed.
For a book which is 500+ pages, Bad Angels is a really easy and entertaining read. The book itself was very well written and with every main character you are drawn in wanting them to find the happiness they desired! Along with the romantic side of the characters’ lives, you are given a slight taste of danger and sleaze to keep you on your toes. The finale of the book is brought together in the last few chapters which are jam-packed with action and keep you on the edge wanting to find out what the outcome will be. I would definitely recommended this book if you find romantic novels a bit too similar sometimes as Rebecca Chance brings romance, comedy and action to the table in this brilliant find!
