Chasing a ghost is easy. It's finding yourself that's the real challenge.

Drowning in darkness, Mace struggles to move on from a past filled with sorrow. Anger is a much easier emotion to handle, one he readily embraces. Burying himself in his work and spending his nights with his brotherhood of bikers, Mace is determined to spend his life playing by his own rules.

Plagued by her own guilt, Lena desires nothing more than to break free from her past and to start afresh. But fear and anxiety threaten to keep her hostage, leaving her frustrated and stifled. The last thing she expects is another brooding man to be her possible way out.

While Lena is determined to fight for her future outside of the Deadwood MC, Mace is resolute to avoid any hope of happiness. Together, they have to decide what they're willing to risk for the perfect chance.

  A Perfect Chance is book 3 in Becca Lee's Perfect series. However, for me, this is the first of her books that I've read. It will not, however, be the last. I really enjoyed reading this. It is written from the p.o.v.s of both Lena and Mace. The transitions are wonderfully handled. Even when there was overlap between their p.o.v.s, it was written so well that it didn't feel like I was reading the same things more than once. Scenes only overlapped enough to set the reader in the right place in the story. The same was true for the couple of time jumps present as well. The prologue is set several years before the events in chapter 1 and there are a couple of scenes that are either flashbacks or backtracks. But they flow so well into the story.

   The characters are so well written also. They're dynamic and their growth throughout the story is clear. Mace and Lena are great characters and I absolutely adored Mace. Though the character I really want to find out more about is Jase. He was completely unobtrusive, but he stuck out to me. I really want to read more about him. Becca, can we pretty-please-with-a-cherry-on-top get a story about Jase?

   The story was engaging and kept me glued to my ereader until I was finished. However, I did see the 'bad guy' right off the bat. But that's certainly not to say that he wasn't well disguised, it's just my unfortunate knack for noticing tiny details. So anyway, there's the story, then there's the story behind the story... as in why Mace and Lena are where they are and what they're doing. That story was pretty sweet in and of itself. It was raw, it was real, and it was heartbreaking and uplifting at the same time. Clearly, she put more thought into that backstory than most people put into naming their first child.;) But really, the backstory created a wonderful connection between Mace and Lena that was both physical and emotional, and Ms. Lee did such an astounding job putting that connection into words and making the reader feel that connection too.

  One thing I loved was that this one gives you a taste of the biker romance without having to delve pussy deep into the MC scene. Sure, I love a good MC romance and enjoyed the sprinkling of MC action that happened here, but it was nice to read a biker romance from outside of all of that.

   If you like badass alpha males with tortured backstories, this one is definitely high on my list of recommends!

About the Author:

Spending the last few years near the Queensland coast, Becca is rarely out of the sea or off the beach. Dragging her long board with her and her overworked Kindle Fire, Becca enjoys her three addictions: reading, surfing and ogling surfers, one of whom is her husband of ten years. 

She can still be found regularly on the beach with her family. Becca tends to leave the surfing to her boys; she's far too busy immersed in her own writing or, of course, with her head still buried in a new read.
