Grab your copy here:



Baseball star Spencer Crews knows April can’t stand him, yet his proposition of temporarily living together is the biggest curveball of his career…

Making a certain kind of video with my enemy (who happens to be everyone’s favorite baseball player) was not my proudest moment, but I blame the alcohol for Spencer’s smirk three seconds before our clothes ended up on the floor for our one-night mistake. He said he deleted the video, which is why I didn’t expect the jerk to interrupt my date a few months later to break the news that we have a problem. His solution is to avoid the press by staying at his lake house to hide away and I stupidly agree.

The next thing I know, I have two tiny eyes staring at me.

Yep, I discover Spencer is a hot single dad to a cute little girl secret. And that’s not the only twist, because the small town by the lake seems to bring us closer; all of us. Spencer and my arguments fizzle out, and our looks grow longer. We talk like it matters and study one another’s bodies. It feels like we are in our own little world. And in the end, I’m not sure if it’s Spencer or me who’s trying to convince us we may just be worth the chance…

Spencer and April bring the banter and steam in this enemies to lovers, single dad, and completely swoon-worthy forced proximity story. Worth the Chance is book two in the standalone interconnected Lake Spark series. For lovers of small-town romance with a touch of sports.

Worth the Chance is a fun and feisty enemies-to-lovers story with a ton of witty banter between Spencer and Abigail. They pretty much can’t stand each other, but they have an alcohol-fueld romp the night of the baby shower for her best friend and his best friend. (Who are the couple from book 1; I didn’t read that, but did not feel like I was missing any backstory.)

A few months later, someone is threatening to leak the naughty video Abigail and Spencer accidentally made that night, and he thinks it’s best for them both if she moves in with him until things blow over. The forced vacation is not ideal, as she keeps reminding him, but Abigail begins to soften around Spencer when she sees how great he is with his daughter Hadley; a daughter that the press doesn’t know exists. It took a lot for Spencer to let Abigail into his sanctuary and be a part of Hadley’s life, and it pays off for him because Abigail and Hadley begin to develop a wonderful friendship on their own.

I thought this story progressed nicely through the different stages of Spencer and Abigail’s relationship. I felt their feelings for one another change and grow, and I loved being along for the ride as they and Hadley became a family unit.

Worth the Chance is the first book I’ve read by Evey Lyon, and I’m so glad I took the chance on it! I definitely want to check out Hudson and Piper’s story (book 1) and look forward to Ford’s story in the future!

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.


Evey loves to write heartwarming feel-good romance that may just make you blush. The pages of her books are filled with swoon, wit, and steamy moments. An American from the Midwest, she now lives in Europe where she drinks way too much coffee, types away on a laptop with music on repeat, and stares at her yoga mat that she should probably use again…
