Take a Chance: Erotic Romance Boxed Set by Caridad Piñeiro


Three sexy novellas about risking it all for a chance at love and passion . . . 


Jason Hart has just one night to prove to his best friend's older sister that anything is possible . . .

Nicole de Salvo has been in love – and lust – for her little brother’s best friend for years. For years she’s watched from afar and done nothing about her attraction for Jason Hart only now their time together is almost at an end. On their last night together will she find the courage to do something about her feelings, or will she live with regret for the rest of her life?


It's been nearly six months since Tommy de Salvo’s fiancée cheated and left him in the midst of wedding preparations because up-and-coming businessman Tommy was all work and no play. The last thing Tommy wants or needs is to be attracted to another woman who won’t be around for too long. A woman just like Navy Corpsman Jasmine Reyes. She’s rough, tough, and determined to go it alone, but Tommy knows that if he passes up this opportunity, he may regret it more than the loss of his fiancée ...

Jasmine “Doc” Reyes is both emotionally and physically scarred after her tour of duty. Wounded in battle, all she can think about is rebuilding her life and continuing with the career that she’s dreamed about since she was a young child. She has no time for rich sexy men who’ve never had a care in the world and wouldn’t understand her determination. But Tommy’s charm is seductive and she knows that she has to explore the attraction, even if it’s only for this one special night.


It's been over a year since Marine Lieutenant Trevor Mason and his father have spoken. After nearly losing his life during a Taliban attack in Afghanistan, Trevor wants to end the rift between them so he can return to active duty with some peace of mind. But a visit to his father’s office only serves to show Trevor that his father isn’t as eager to reunite. If not for the intervention of Samuel Mason’s spunky and very sexy intern, Trevor would probably be returning to Afghanistan with his one wish unfulfilled.

Trevor Mason had used to do all kinds of things to Maggie Sullivan’s insides when she worked at the country club his family used to attend. Five years later, there is little left of the teen she knew in the stoic Marine who only wants some time with his father. When Trevor’s father backs out of his son’s dinner invitation at the last minute, Maggie does the only thing she can: she goes to Trevor’s apartment to deliver the news, but she can’t leave him alone on his one last night before returning to duty.

Thrown together, Trevor and Maggie can’t ignore the sexual heat between them. As they satisfy one set of needs, another slowly develops as passion breathes life into other emotions. Will Trevor and Maggie’s one last night together possibly lead to many other nights in the future?

My review:

How long does it take to fall in love?  How long do you need to know that they are for you?  You will never know unless you take a chance.  These three loosely connected steamy novellas give the opportunity for a military hero to find their happily ever after but only if they put it all on the line.  Facing enemy fire might just be easier than risking their hearts.

JUST ONE NIGHT – Jase has loved his best friend Tommy’s sister Nicole, for what seems all his life but the “bro code” and his own fear of screwing it up has kept him from making his move.  When Tommy tells him “Go big or go home.” Jase has one night to convince Nicole of his feelings.  He uses his body, heart and soul to give her a night to convince her to give them a chance at a future together.  Woulda worked for me. J

ONE SPECIAL NIGHT This is a case of love finding you when you least expect it.  Sexy Tommy de Salvo is the Best Man at Jase & Nicole’s (from Just One Night) wedding.  He is single and not looking.  Navy medic Jasmine “Doc” Reyes is attending the wedding because she served with Jase and was injured in the same event that sent him home for medical leave and allowed him to marry the love of his life.  She doesn’t need a man in her life right now as she is leaving the military and making major life changes.  But the chemistry between her and Tommy is off the charts so maybe a wedding hook up will take the edge off.  What they don’t expect is the conflagration between them and oh my goodness you will need a towel after this one.

ONE LAST NIGHT Marine Lieutenant Trevor Mason is about to rejoin his unit in Afghanistan after being home on medical leave. His experience has made him want to repair his relationship with his father who was not thrilled with his choice to serve in the military rather than go into business with him.  Maggie was the cute girl who waited on them at the country club but now she is all grown up and working as an intern for Trevor’s dad.  Getting to his father means going through her.  He has never had a more delightful mission.  This story was a sweet second chance story between father and son. I was disappointed with how fast Maggie fell into the sack with Trevor but the rest of the story more than made up for it.
