Sometimes the biggest risk is playing it safe…- Chance of a Lifetime (Anderson Brothers #3) by Marissa Clarke

Chance reluctantly helps Gen complete her bucket list in order to keep her out of trouble. Running through a freezing fountain, playing Spin the Bottle while fending off a mad horde of stinging insects, and skinny dipping with homicidal attack swans don’t hold a candle to the real danger: falling for the one person he can never have.

Sometimes the biggest risk is playing it safe…

Gen Richards is tired of living down to her family’s expectation of the helpless blind girl. Resurrecting her high-school bucket list that begins with “kiss a total stranger” seems just the thing until she finds herself in a panty-melting lip lock with her big brother’s best friend.

Chance Anderson thrives on adrenaline, but Genny’s the one risk he’s not willing to take. His recklessness a decade ago landed her in the hospital and ejected him from her life. He’s bad for her and everyone knows it—especially her big brother.

EXCERPT

“I know what this is,” she said, taking a step closer. “You’re only freaked out because you’ll be my first. If that weren’t the case, we wouldn’t be having this conversation.”
His silence confirmed she was right. She grabbed the handles of the bag on the counter, planning to go...she didn’t know where. She had no clue as to the layout of the house. She slammed the bag down, defeated by her own deficiency.
Why? Why did she have to be like this? Why couldn’t she have been sighted like everyone else? Being blind didn’t make her special like Chance had told her. It made her off- limits. And she hated it. But most of all, she hated Walter, who had not only deprived her of Chance for ten years, he’d deprived her of this moment as well, his invisible presence looming over them like a specter.
She reached in the bag to pull out her cane and was stopped by a gentle hand over hers. She stilled, feeling like the pet rabbit she used to have whose heart beat a million times a minute when she held it.
“Gen.” His voice was calming, and she loosened her grip on the folded cane. “Genny.” He placed his hands on either side of her face. “I’m not holding back because I’d be your first.” His lips brushed hers, and she took a deep, shuddering breath. He smoothed her bangs out of her face. “I’m holding back because I want to be your last.”
