This is my first official blog tour and I'm so excited to be participating!Beautiful Chances is a story about Lily. Lily has lost her family and run to Florida in order to sort out her life and to maybe to run from her grief and guilt. But we all know you can't run from either of those things. So she struggles with nightmares and relationships. Kyle just sort of shows up and takes over everything. One day he wasn't there, the next day he was and he wormed his way into every nook and cranny of Li [...]
2.5 stars for effort.The thought was good, but execution and development clearly lacked. Some things like characters' actions and sequence of events just weren't cohesive enough to be a "good" story.

** An ARC was kindly provided by the author in exchange for an honest review **4 StarsLet me start by saying that this book was quite the enjoyable read. I found myself smiling and giggling through most of the book. I liked how the author showed the true side of grief. She didn't sugar coat it and/or make it go away quickly. We follow the journey of Lily trying to get her life back after the tragic loss of her whole family. Now I know you are probably thinking.essing right?!?! But let [...]
Wow This book had me hooked from the beginning, anxiously turning the pages at the intensity of Kyle and Lily's story. I was immediately drawn to Kyle. Highly recommended! I cannot wait for more of their story!!!
The book started beautifullyThe H/h met at the beach and formed an instant connection that transformed into a very intense love, however what I did not liked was the "pace" of the actual romance developments it had the right ingredients and the hero was hell over heels with the heroine, in my opinion it went far too fast and I was missing the build up! I wanted to "witness" their love when it was flourishing and I never got that chancejust 5 days after knowing each other they went to bed? I was [...]

I absolutely fell in love with this book. Lily and Kyle are incredible. The physical and emotional attraction between them is so undeniable that you can almost feel the tension coming off the pages. Yes, it is a hot book but it is also an emotional one. We see the pain Lily goes through after her loss and the heartache Kyle experiences not knowing how to help her. You will laugh, get angry, and cry throughout this book. Loved it
*ARC received from Author for Honest Review*I loved this book. It was a great story about overcoming grief and finding love when you least expect it. Both Lily and Kyle are struck with the love bug as soon as their eyes meet. The two continue to challenge and embrace one-another making Beautiful Chances an enjoyable read.“I loved my family dearly only for them to be taken from me. I was terrified at the thought that I could open my heart again, and just as easily, lose someone dear.”- LilyAf [...]

**ARC provided by the author and Literati Author Services in exchange for an honest review.**I fell in love with this book from the second I started reading it.

She has a traumatising past that she has been neglecting since the accident. While working at the beach, she mee [...]
So, I went into Beautiful Chances with only one knowledge of this book It has a GORGEOUS cover. I didn't even read the synopsis. I kind of like to do that every now and then just so I have no preconceived feelings about a book.We start out learning about the heroin Lily, who has suffered a tragic horrible loss in her life and led her to the sandy beaches of Florida to start anew. Lily is very closed off and refuses to let anyone in too close in fear of losing anyone else. Lily is a romance novel [...]
(*Swoon*) Oh Beautiful Kyle (*Sigh*)What an amazing story. I purchased this right when it came but didn't start it until yesterday. I have no freaking idea why on earth I waited so long to read it. It is absolutely beautiful. I fell hard for Kyleuld he be any more perfect. He is strong, supportive, possessive, dominating, sweet, sensual, and 1000% swoonwrothy! My heart broke for Lily and what she has gone thru. She may seem weak to some for running and pushing people away but I think she is str [...]

You do things together and you home life is happy and then in the blink of an eye everything is taken from you and you are left alone with no parents and no sister. Well that happened to Lily and now she is numb to everything and every [...]

3.5 hearts!Debut novel find! "Beautiful Chances," the debut novel from Alicia Rae is a sweet and entertaining story that keeps you engaged in each page while delivering a story of grief and growth, loss and love, hope and pain. Each emotion is felt deeply throughout the pages and your heart both aches and smiles for our beautifully written female lead, Lily.I will warn you, there is a cliffhanger but it didn't ruin the book for me. It actually is a perfect lead in to the next book in the series [...]
Why is it I always choose books with cliffhangers? Is it like a cliffhanger curse or something? Anywho, Kyle that boy is sex on two legs I'm telling you his a cocky thing, "someone who doesn't plan to be a stranger for long," he answered confidently." He's very forthcoming with his intentions, doesn't beat around the bush, "I want you, Lily. I want you to be mine. I've wanted you since the first second I laid eyes on you at the beach." I mean I'm not prude but Lily sure knows how to put me to sh [...]
Totally fangirling over here!! This is a MUST read!! Lily has secluded herself from the world as she is refusing to grieve unimaginable loss of her family and she feels responsible. Kyle walks into her life wanting to life those burdens and bring light back into her eyes. Yes, the romance is almost instant - but isn't it that way with all of us when we fall in love? Sometimes we have no control over the way our heart feels. There passion was real and flowing off the pages. I loved every minute o [...]
Intense - Beautiful - Inspiring I absolutely loved Alicia Rae's writing style and the emotional depth she added to this story. She showed true heartache and a man's strength to take it away. I simply could not turn the pages fast enough. Kyle and Lily's instant connection is something all of us women dream of. Not sure what other's mean of the synopsis confusion. It was clearly intended towards Annie's unborn child as she felt she had taken another life. I can't wait to watch her continue to gro [...]
Amazing book! It broke my heart yet healed it by Kyle! Damn that man is hot! I did at times want to beat Lilybut Kyle took care of that in a heartfelt way. Poor Luke I hope he finds his someone who knows maybe Abbey??? I did want to throw my kindle and want to stomp my foot when it ended in a cliffhanger!! Lol now I have to wait a whole month for book 2 BUT a month is better than a year like some series! :) This is a must read!
This book touched my soul in so many ways. It was just a nice read. I love the way that Kyle has different sides to him. There is the ALPHA that we all just love but there is the softer side of him as well that is so in sync with what Lily need. I totally love the way he love her. All consuming reach for the star crazy kind of love I just LOVED This book.
Oh my goodness. This booked hooked me from the very beginning. I could feel the love that Kyle had for Lily. He was sweet, loving and understanding. Every girl needs a Kyle in her life. I can't wait to read more about this loving couple.
Such a good bookI can't wait for the next one. Great writing and a great storyline. I think I figured out why she has a stalker and what is up with Luke? Oh and I want to find me a Kyle. my husband will mind??? Lol
Love it! Can't wait for Vol 2e on Oct 29!!
So, despite having quite a few loose endsd me liking the emotion of Lily's loss over the love story between her & Kyle, it was a good book. Full review to come on 9/20 with my tour stop.
DNF 50%Way to cheesy for me, I just can't.
Review originally posted at Ramblings From This ChickBeautiful Chances is the debut novel of Alicia Rae, and is also the first book in her Beautiful series. With this being her first book, I had no idea what to expect with this story. I am so glad that I took a chance based on the blurb and beautiful cover though. I really enjoyed this story and thought that it was a wonderful start to this series. I really liked the characters and the author's writing style flowed well and was easy to get into. [...]
Beautiful Chances was a strange read for me. I kept waiting for Kyle to turn into an abusive jerk. He was way too overbearing and possessive and I did not like him at all. But I guess Lily likes that. She likes her "sexy alpha with his badass, overbearing hot side." Yes, because overbearing is always high on my list of attributes I look for in a partner. Lily refers to Kyle as overbearing in a positive way multiple times. It was justI don't get that.Lily has been hiding out on the beach in Flori [...]
Beautiful Chances joins the growing list of books in the New Adult genre and shows a lot of promise for a young author. Feelings of grief, survivor's guilt, and loneliness are what fuels the beginning of this story as Lily is the sole survivor of a tragic car accident. Not wanting to feel such painful emotions ever again has her closing herself off and trying to leave her past behind by heading to Florida. These early scenes reveal the pain she's going through vividly and brought a tear to my ey [...]
