No Chance Meeting (No Chance Love #1) By Jaye Elliot Christian Contemporary Romance Paperback & ebook, 393 Pages February 11th 2020 by Living Sword Publishing

Alex Jennings is done with life. After losing her brother in Afghanistan, everything has collapsed around her. Getting laid off from her day job and failing in her art career, she has nowhere left to turn. She once had faith to believe that all things would work together for good, but that faith died with her brother. Now she just wants the pain to end.

Riley Conrad served thirteen years in the military until three bullets sent him home. After a year and a half of physical therapy and scraping together a living, all he wants is to live a simple life and perhaps even open the coffee shop he dreams about. However, the weight of failing his parents’ expectations doesn’t make it easy, and working as a bartender isn’t getting him anywhere fast.

Could a “chance” meeting between Alex and Riley set them both on the path God always intended?

EXCERPT 

They stepped outside and descended the stairs down to Alexs small, private porch. Dia was just coming out the front door with a pitcher of lemonade and a basket sure to contain homemade sweets she set on her antiqued patio table. Tonight was the weekly knitting get-together she hosted. Shed invited Alex more than once, but there was nothing like the thought of joining a knitting club to make her feel like a spinster.

Alex,she said cheerfully when she looked up. Her gaze drifted to Riley and then back to Alex, sparkling with curiosity.

Alex paused with Riley at her side. This is Riley Conrad. We work together and . . . hes my boyfriend. Hes taking me out to dinner tonight.She shared a quick smile with Riley.

Dia looked positively delighted. This would certainly dominate tonights conversation with her friends.

How wonderful! Im very pleased to meet you, Riley. Im sure youll take very good care of that young lady.

Alex had no idea if she said it in a completely innocent manner or if it was actually more of a challenge. She almost giggled to think of Dia giving Riley a subtle threat behind that pleased smile of hers.

Very seriously, he promised, Yes, ma’am.”

Her smile turned to one of satisfaction. Enjoy your evening.

You too,Alex replied.

She and Riley walked to the street where hed parked his truck. He opened the door for her, just as he did whenever he picked her up for work. She had been positively thrilled to ride with him the first time. There was just something about old trucks that couldnt be beat.

When Riley got in, he said, I have an idea your landlady could be dangerous if provoked.

Alex laughed outright. You caught that then? Im thinking the same thing. I could just see her gathering up her friends and coming after you with brooms and knitting needles if you break my heart.

He glanced over at her, his smile teasing, yet serious at the same time. “I’ll have to make sure not to break your heart then.
