Rome McGuire knew he was in trouble the first time he saw her.
She was sweet and pretty and just about perfect in every way. She was also too young and innocent for the Reapers Motorcycle Club. He did the right thing and walked away.
The second time, he couldn’t resist tasting her.
Gorgeous and smart, fun and full of wonder, she jumped on his bike and would’ve followed him anywhere. Still, she deserved a shot at happiness somewhere bigger and better than a town like Hallies Falls. Walking away wasn’t so easy that time, but her family needed her and he had a job to do.
When she came around a third time, he’d had enough. Randi Whittaker had been given two chances to escape, and now it was time for Rome to take his.
This time, the only way Randi would be leaving Hallies Falls was on the back of Rome’s bike.

I’m a huge fan of the Reapers MC series and I was excited to read Rome's Chance for it features a bit of a time jump from the events in the previous full-length novel, Reapers Fire.
In Rome's Chance, we get the story of Rome and Randi.
I liked the characters - actually I loved Rome and Randi - and I enjoyed their story but, despite enjoying it, everything was a bit ‘meh’.
It was a great read for passing the time but it wasn’t a riveting read. It was just nice. Enjoyable but forgettable.
I feel bad even saying this for the last Reapers novella, Shades Lady, was awesome and a top fav! But Rome's Chance is one of those novellas that would have been better as a full length novel for there wasn’t really enough time to get emotionally invested in the characters - thus events in the book failed to elicit the emotional impact they should have had which was a shame.
I’d recommend this book for fans of lighter MC reads who’re looking for a nice quick read or for existing fans of Joanna Wylde’s Reapers. However, if you’re new to the Reapers series, I wouldn’t start here. I'd start at the beginning or read Shade's Lady (another 1001 Dark Nights offering) to get a taste of the world.
