Sex changes everything.
And love can turn into an enemy…
Mitch Abrams, the bassist for the popular rock band Generation Rejects, has been in love with Gracie Cook for years. But Gracie, a complicated girl with a lot of baggage, was too blind to see how she felt about the man who had always stood by her.
Until one night of passion brought them closer than they had ever been before.
Feeling off balance and out of control, Gracie does the only thing a girl with self-destructive tendencies can do: end things with Mitch before they can really begin.
So Mitch moves on. With his band, his friends, and a new girlfriend.
Yet he can’t seem to forget about the girl who threw his heart away.
Gracie, who is still struggling to build a life after crashing to the bottom, finds it hard to forget about her one night with Mitch. And even as she tries to convince herself it was only sex, her heart knows differently.
But life is full of chances and desperate moments. And when Mitch and Gracie are thrown back into each other’s lives, will they seize at the opportunity to do things right?
Or will the rock star and the less than ordinary girl crash and burn?

Mitch and Gracie
Gracie and Mitch
Two friends who basically would finish each other's sentences, were unseparable until the one fateful night that they decided to take their "best friends" to a whole other level of a "one-night stand". Mitch has decided to express his love to Gracie and Gracie on the other hand freaked and took off the next morning and their friendship went to hell from that point on. Mitch took solace on a friend he ran into two weeks later and ended up in a relationship with someone he didn't love to forget his one true love.
But when you know that that's the person for you, no matter what you do or who you date, that person will be haunting you forever. Mitch tried like hell to forget Gracie but it was impossible and once she started coming around again, it became even worse. They would bicker and fight and next they're talking like old friends. Talk about bi-polar these two!!
Gracie went through a lot. When she was in college she loved to party and became an anorexic and alcoholic. But when Mitch came into her life he was always there to help her. This is how they became best friends. He didn't care that she was a hot mess, he still loved her and was willing to do whatever it took to be with her but Gracie didn't see it like that. She didn't realize how much she loved him until it was too late for them.
This was a bittersweet ending to the Generation Rejects Band. But I'm hoping we can get more down the line once they're all married and see how they're really handling the "real world" with real responsibilities. Maybe a get-together since they're all going their separate ways and some are even moving away to other cities.
Desparate Chances is part of a series that I haven't gotten the pleasure of reading yet, but since I read Mitch and Gracie's story now I'm going to go back and read the rest of the group's stories because I want to see how this all unfolded and how they all got together. I truly did love this story about friends to lovers to enemies back to friends to lovers story.
Ms. Walters did an exceptional job with this story.
I love reading series about friends and get to know them all individually and as a whole.
Total 5 star read!!
