Take a Chance on Me by Kaylee Balwin
Madelyn Stewart knows how to have fun, no matter what her ex-husband claims, but between working two jobs and taking care of her five-year-old son, opportunities for fun are few and far between. So when she is given tickets to take her son to see a live taping of the MyHeartChannel show Take a Chance, they go, even though it means she’ll have to stay up all night to turn in her latest article on time.
To her shock, the daredevil star, Chance Risk, is none other than Graham Sawyer, the quiet accounting major she’d dated in college—someone she’d cowardly broken up with by note and hoped to never see again. When she makes a major mistake on her article, she has to swallow her embarrassment and reach out to Chance for an exclusive or risk losing her job.
Chance Risk doesn’t talk to reporters. Not after the way he’s seen them destroy his brother’s marriage and career. But Take a Chance is starting to lose viewers, he’s desperate.
Despite his better judgment, when Madelyn reaches out, he can’t resist the opening to figure out why she broke his heart eight years before. His only condition: she has to come to three filming locations with him and his crew to get a real sense of what the show is about.
Swept up in adventure, they start to feel the chemistry from college rekindling. But the reason Madelyn left eight years before still looms between them. If Chance can’t convince Madelyn to take a chance on love, she’ll walk away again. This time forever.

“I’ve got a second chance.” Linda’s eyes lit up with relief. “That’s awesome, Madelyn. You’ll do great.” She let out a humorless laugh. “Yeah, well, we’ll see. Everything rides on getting an exclusive with Chance Risk.” “MyChannel Chance Risk?” “You know him?” “Oliver talks about him so much I looked him up. I thought he didn’t do interviews.” “I panicked.” Madelyn took a huge bite out of the creamy pie. An interview with Chance Risk. Someone she never wanted to see again. Someone who definitely didn’t want to see her again. Her future at Verity News all depended on a man whose heart she’d smashed eight years ago. Linda walked closer and dropped another huge spoonful of cream on Madelyn’s plate. “You’re going to need this,” she said grimly. Madelyn closed her eyes. What in the world had she done?
