A Fighting Chance by Annalisa Nicole Blog Tour


Max “Slick” Jones has never led an easy life. He’s rough, hardened and tatted on the outside and never once thought that he deserved to be loved. Despite his upbringing, he’s dedicated his life to helping others. When his old friend Asher Wellington calls upon his services, he drops everything knowing he has a lifetime of debt to fulfill to this family. But, what he didn’t expect was to meet Chloe.

Chloe Peters grew up in a privileged, picture perfect life with amazing parents and her twin brother, Kyle. She and Kyle were living out their lifelong dream until one second, one moment in time changed everything and sent her into a tailspin she thought she could never recover from. 

Will the exchange of deep dark pain in the eyes of two hardened souls open the door to a happily ever after?

Can Max show Chloe that there can be life after tragedy? Can Chloe Show Max that he is worthy of love?

Sometimes the hardest person to forgive, is yourself.

This is a mature audience book, and is intended for adults only.

Ever so slowly I enter her. Never in my life have I wanted something to last forever. This feeling, this moment, right here, the love that I feel bursting from my chest, is something I’ve never felt before. It’s something I never felt like I deserved. But I feel like if I died today, I’d die a happy man knowing what true love feels like. This is what a man waits for his entire life. This is what being in love feels like.


She walks over to the window, pulls back the sheer white curtain, and stares out into what seems like nothingness. She places her forehead on the glass and slowly shakes it back and forth. I can’t stand to see her like this. I walk across the room and stand behind her. I question whether or not I should even touch her. My hand hovers over her arm as the hairs stand on end, begging me for my touch. Her mind is telling her no, but her body is crying out to me, begging me for help. Ever so softly I touch the back of her arms. She jumps and picks her head off the window, but doesn’t shrug it away. I run my hand down the back of her arms and bury my nose in the crook of her neck. I feel the goose bumps forming on her arms and I hear her breathing increase. I know she’s still in this broken shell. I know if I don’t do something now, I risk the possibility of never freeing her from her demons. And I know just what I need to do.

Chloe has lived through so much pain and heartache that all you want is for her to have her happy ending. However, things don't always go they way we want. With her job as an OB/GYN, she knows that sometimes life doesn't give us what we want. After facing the heartache of losing her patient and their baby, she is in a dark place. However she doesn't expect that the father of that baby & husband of the patient to kidnap her. This isn't something that she is prepared for.

Max isn't the typical knight in shining armor riding in on a white horse to saver Chloe (or anyone else). He is tattooed, and a PI. Yes he likes to help others, however Chloe isn't who he expected. He is going to help her out as a favor to her brother Kyle.

Max isn't the super alpha guy in this book. He is someone that needs Chloe to soften him up and make him admit that there is more to life out there. Chloe needs him to help her pick up the pieces and get her to face forward and keep going, even knowing that there is so much hurt and darkness in the world.

This was a great book. I loved these two characters together, and how they balance each other out. Loved picking up with this great family as well. I recommend this to anyone that wants a story with strong characters, a loving, supportive family, and a great story. I personally, loved how strong they each had to be for themselves, as well as each other!



I am an “Indie” contemporary romance author. I live in California with my husband and two teenage boys. I absolutely love being a stay at home mom. 

I never liked reading as a kid. I only started reading romance novels in the past few years. My Kindle and I are inseparable now. A thought occurred to me in December of 2012 that maybe I could write a romance novel. So I went to work with the encouragement of my husband and my sister-in-law. It didn’t take long to figure out that I really enjoy writing. 

Today I am a self-published author and it has been an amazing journey.
