What are the chances your first love will be your last?

Winona Clark hasn’t been the same for years. After numerous attempts to start fresh abroad, one phone call brings her back home to some harsh truths and distant, but never forgotten, faces. Yet, there is one face she never expected to see again—the face of the boy who stole her heart all those years ago. Finally ready to deal with her past, Winona attempts to confront her trauma and embrace the love she feels she deserves. With love comes secrets though, and when you open the door to the past, you never know what will come out, including everything you wish had stayed inside.

Nick Wilder can’t outrun his demons. Tormented by what he has lost and the things he has done, Nick does whatever it takes to extinguish the images of the girl who stole his soul all those years ago. On the outside, he’s a broody bartender, but on the inside, he is holding on by a thread. When the one person he never expected to see again appears in his living room, Nick’s world is thrown. Determined not to be affected by the woman who knows him best, Nick does all he can to avoid the ghost of his past. But could the one woman he so desperately wants to avoid, be the one to save him?


Chance Encounters is the second book in Scarlett Hopper’s Encounters series and I must say that I actually liked this one a little more than the first one. The author’s writing style and character development has significantly grown from her debut novel and I found myself more invested with her main characters, Winona and Nick, right from the beginning.

The moment I finished Brief Encounters, I was fortunate enough to be able to dive right into the next book in the series since I didn’t discover this author until the next book was being released! I love Winona and Nick’s story, even though I found myself at times wanting to reach through my kindle to smack them in the face so they’d realize how perfect they were together. So many factors separated them for so long and when they finally discover some unexpected secrets you would have assumed it would bring them closer, not tear them further apart. When they finally had some common sense I cheered, but it only lasted a few moments because a few chapters later they were back at it again. These two had my head spinning around and around in circles until I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to keep up with them. This story definitely kept me on my toes and I enjoyed every moment of it!

I have to say that I am curious about Ash’s story and I cannot wait to get my hands on it sometime this year! Readers I suggest checking out the Encounters series today if you love a good New Adult and College Romance!
