    I thought this novella was cute! Despite it's brevity, it worked for me. The fact that Penelope and Eli have a history, and it's laid out well for the reader, takes away that moving too fast feeling that a lot of novellas give me. Penelope's free-spirited nature won me over, and I like how she and Eli are foils for one another, but still have a deep connection point. Also, how cute is the idea of a camper for Penelope to sell her pies out of? I just loved that. I also appreciated Eli's character. I thought this novella was cute!

I'm not sure when straight-forward male leads fell out of favor, but Wade brought one back with Eli. He wants to win Penelope back, and this time, he's not afraid to be honest and do what needs to be done to achieve that goal. He's unflappable but not pushy or into games, and that's just really attractive to me. Move over, brooding, hard-to-decipher heroes - give me the gentlemanly ones that make their intentions known. Unless he's walking on the moors with his shirttails flapping all Darcy-esque. But that's another story. This novella has me pumped for book one in this series. I look forward to seeing these characters again and getting to know more about Misty River.

    This novella is so good! It has a sweet second chance romance, humor, a lovable kids' basketball team, and lots of pies that I would love to taste :-) It's a delightful preview to Wade's new series. This novella is so good!

    Loved this sweet novella so much!! This introduction to author, Becky Wade's newest series is the best kind of tease for what's coming. The romantic tension between Penelope and Eli was swoony and heartfelt and I couldn't resist rooting for them from page 1. As a military wife, I found the plot authentic and genuine, delivering a message of hope and promise in the unknown--something us military spouses know a thing about.

    Take a Chance on Me was an awesome intro to Wade's new series! I enjoyed getting to know the characters and can't wait to read Stay with Me when it releases! I liked how Eli challenged the heroine to not think all airmen are the same and maybe her no-dating-airmen rule shouldn't apply to Eli. A great novella! Purchased FREE on Amazon Kindle.

    So, should we just get the cover love out of the way right off the top? I mean, seriously, in real life those eyes follow you everywhere. Paired with that hint of a smile...smelling salts may be required every time you reach for this book. Just sayin'. This short and zippy novella is the perfect introduction to Misty River and don't be fooled by the shorter word count (131 p.) because Wade delivers the same type of detail in plot and characterization that she does with her full-length novels.

And her word choice! Sheer magic! Penelope with her reservations paired with Eli's single-minded pursuit make for plenty of delightful dialogue, flirty dances and bonding over newborn babysitting. Consider this your toe-curl alert. You can bet I'll be hunting down the first book in the Misty River Romance series, Stay With Me, ASAP! But then we have to wait until the new year before book two releases. :-(

    I can’t believe this is the first Becky Wade book that I have read! Such great contemporary romance books that I’ve missed out on. You can be sure that I’ll be going to her backlist to gobble up all the books and be on the look out for her future releases.

With smoothly flowing plot, deeply layered characters who are easy to empathize with, wonderful banter and clever writing, this novella will captivate you. The small tourist town of Misty River is absolutely enchanting and I can’t wait to go back there in Stay With Me. Penelope is a creative, passionate, loyal baker set on not dating any men from the Air Force and Eli is a rule-following, loyal, tender, persistent, and goal-oriented fighter pilot determined to pursue Penelope. Penelope’s family (older brother Theo, his wife and baby) plays a big role in this story with medical and babysitting emergencies. Anyone who enjoys contemporary romance will love this start to Misty River series. Becky Wade has found herself another gushing fan in this reader.

Award-winning author Becky Wade’s ability to create wonderful characters that her readers will fall in love with and her trademark humor shines through in this beautifully written novella. Becky Wade has been a long-time favorite author of mine, and I am guaranteed to love everything she writes. Air Force fighter pilot Eli Price is back in town and determined to win back Penelope Quinn, owner of Polka-Dot Apron Pies. Penelope does not date airmen, but should she break her own rule (again) and give the handsome and charming Eli a second chance? There were so many memorable moments in this novella, including a karaoke performance toward the end that completely stole my heart. Readers are also introduced to Eli’s friend Sam, who will play a starring role in Stay with Me, book one in the Misty River romance series, which releases in May 2020. Take a Chance on Me is highly recommended for readers of contemporary romance, especially readers who enjoy books by Denise Hunter and Courtney Walsh. The sneak peek for Stay with Me at the end of the novella has me eagerly anticipating the release of Sam and Genevieve’s story. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author/publisher and was under no obligation to leave a review. All opinions expressed are mine. “What could be a greater honor than loving and supporting someone who’s given their oath to protect their country and their countrymen, even at the cost of their own life?”

    Just enough to dangle the good stuff in front of your eyes and get you ready for this upcoming series! I love how Becky gives us both perspectives and in this case is adds to the tension and build up for both Penelope and Eli. The way Becky writes her locations are spectacular. So vivid.

    'Sometimes, in order to grab hold of something good, you had to empty your hands.' I adore Becky Wade's books. I never miss a one.

It sets the stage for the sweet little town featured in the series and we get to meet some of the folks who will be featured in the upcoming novels. Recommended.

No matter how attractive and great Eli is. Eli is an F-22 pilot and has just returned to town after a trip to Syria and wants to get Penelope to go out with him. Can his charms win Penelope over? I thoroughly enjoyed this quick and fun story. I found myself smiling and pulling for Eli, especially when he tries to fulfill all of Penelope's list for the perfect guy. I am looking forward to Eli's friend, Sam's story next. This was a free prequel to the new Misty River Romance series.

    This is a really cute novella to set up the Misty River series. We meet Penelope, her brother and his family and his best friend Eli.

I can’t wait! *I purchased this book from Amazon. All opinions are my own.*

    This is a sweet story that is the start of a new series from Becky Wade. We are introduced to characters in Misty River, with this book being about Eli and Penelope. Eli is a fighter pilot and Penelope is a baker, who doesn't date...you guessed it. He is determined, but so is she. As their story unfolds, I fell in love with the growth that the characters experienced. I did not want to put this book down. It made me want more and I am looking forward to this series!

    Becky Wade delivers another lovely novella, giving us a glimpse into the setting for her upcoming new series, Misty River. As ever, her characters burrow in deep and quickly. The topic of fighter pilot girlfriend issues hit close to home for me as I'm married to one and the author nails the lifestyle and the feel of that profession. Highly recommended.
