Publisher's Summary

You can design a perfect life, then a woman comes along and messes it all up!

Prescott Chance is the go-to architect for the wealthy and famous, which has made him more wealthy and famous than he's ever wanted to be. He turns down more commissions than he accepts and is extremely private.

Holly Legere is barely making ends meet between rent and student loans. As an assistant to Alistair Rupert, the notoriously difficult industrialist, she works night and day for slave wages, hanging on in hopes of a promised promotion in his huge organization. When Alistair Rupert's wife decides she wants a Prescott Chance-designed house, and Prescott turns her down, it's Holly's job to make the choosy architect change his mind. And Holly is a very determined woman. In this modern romantic comedy, she'll go to any lengths to get him to design her boss a house, including pulling in his huge family for support.

This is the third book in the Take a Chance series, though the books stand alone.

Not sure Prescott is the best

This one was really weird for me. I thought Prescott, the leading man, was not really a great person. He has a very distinctive taste that he wants in women, but yet the woman he is dating here fits none of that. And he seems disgusted by people who don’t fit his type, yet somehow gets along with Holly. But nothing is ever talked about their differences. I’d say this is a 3.5/5 stars. I want them to talk more about what they wanted in a relationship and how they both aren’t fulfilling that lol.

The audio is still great! Teri is continuing to do a good job with the characters and their distinct voices. I give it a 4.5/5 stars!

A Home For Holly!

A Home For Holly!

This is #03 in the Take A Chance Series.

HEA with No cliffhangers!

These are about the members of the Chase family. I suggest reading them in order to get the best experience.

Content Warning: There is mild sexplay.

♥ Story ♥

This is about the middle child, Prescott. He is an Architectural Genius! He specializes in green building and is in high demand world wide. Despite the lack of epilogue in #02, the previous couples are present and wedding planning, so lots of updates to be had.

Holly Legere is not long out of school and drowning in student loans. Despite having a MBA, she finds it hard to land a job. This scenario is all too true in real life as well!. Holly had to take a position as an assistant to the Rupert's, who are rich and notoriously difficult. The pay sucks and the hours are worse! The promotion she will receive if she can stick it out will make it all worth it, ...hopefully, ...maybe.

Prescott Chance doesn't change his mind, ever. He likes order and routine. When he is presented with a challenge by Holly, he can't help but to bend. The more time he spends with her, the further he falls. He doesn't want a mate, but then he is telling her to stay.

Blueprint for a Kiss is delightful! These two really complement each other. Prescott helps Holly slow down and simply enjoy and she helps him step outside his ordered life. There is no epilogue again, but I'm sure we will get more in the next title. This is a great edition to the Take A Chance Series, and looking forward to more!

♥ Author ♥

Nancy Warren's writing just keeps getting better. It's exciting to know there still a good handful of Chance siblings to go!.

♥ Narrator(s) ♥

Teri Schnaubelt is improving right along with the author. It makes for great audiobooks!

I Love this series, and every book gets better!

This is a delightful book, where we meet a lot more of the Chance siblings. Evan and Caitlyn’s wedding is coming closer and all the family arriving home for the celebrations, I think this is one of my favourite stories so far. In this book we get to know Prescott Chance a famous architect whose world is turned upside down when Holly Legere won’t take no for an answer. At first glance they seem total opposites, but by the end they fit together seamlessly.
The narration I only noticed on some of the male voices, as I always feel with a good narrator you get carried along with the story not jolted out of the story.

A Superb well written and narrated love story

This is my 3rd book about Daphne and Jack Chance's adult children and while I enjoyed the first two, I think that this is my favourite.

While I liked Ethan (Kiss a Girl in The Rain) and Iris (Iris in Bloom) right from the start, it wasn't the case with Prescott. I found him to be irritating and cold, however a short way into the book he started to grow on me and that continued through the book.

Holly was someone that I liked right from the start, though I wanted her to be tougher with some people and got a little frustrated. This doesn't mean that I enjoyed those parts of the book any less. I was invested in the story and the lives of the characters and felt protective over Holly. I think that when a character is believable and relatable to the point that you  feel you want to protect them, you know it's a good book.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story and the opportunity to 'meet' more of the Chance family, and see more of the characters introduced in previous books.

While the Chance families stories can be read as standalone novels, you do glean information on the previous books in the series.

Teri Schnaubelt does another wonderful job with the voice acting. Once again she has  managed to give each character a recognisable voice and also show their individual personalities and feelings.

Something more than just the blueprint of life . .

Prescott/Scott Chance was so much more than I could have expected. He was deeper and held more complexities than any of the other Chance siblings. Getting to know him was a joy. He was frustrating, intelligent, simple, clear, and more. I thought he would never kiss Holly. Holly was the chaotic challenge that he needed to provide some balance to his simple organized life. She was a breath of fresh air and determination. She provided the challenge he didn't recognize he needed.

Teri Schnaubelt was doing what she does.

Holly & Prescott

Would you try another book from Nancy Warren and/or Teri Schnaubelt?

I do like the Chance siblings and want to read about the rest of them.

Any additional comments?

Prescott has isolationist and trust issues. I greatly disliked him more as the book went on. His artistic eccentrics were fine but his attitude toward women leave much to be desired. He expounds how much he only likes sleek, orderly, and uncomplicated women. Holly has none of these traits. She is not the model, thin, rich, and well dressed woman he usually dates.

This Sweet Series Continues With Book 3 Blueprint

Holly Legere is in debt for student loans (this is mentioned about 50 times!) She has landed a job with Alastair Rupert. She is his personal assistant, expected to be on call whenever needed. However, if she can hang on, meet the demands of he and his wife, resisting the urge to quit, she is more than guaranteed a promotion in his large company (paying receiving a huge pay increase.)

Prescott Chance is one of 11 siblings, the offspring of Jack and Daphne Chance. They have raised their 11 offspring (some by blood, some by adoption.) Prescott is a back to the basics architect. He is completely off the grid and unplugged. His success and wealth are far more than he cares to have. However, it affords him the opportunity to work on projects that he wants to work on because he wants to, not because he has to.

Holly and Prescott meet when Holly tries to talk him into building a home for Alastair Rupert's wife. Prescott has turned the consignment down and has no desire to change his mind. Holly MUST talk him into building the home or face losing her job (and defaulting on her student loans)

I may have said it before, but it bears repeating. Terry Schnaubelt chooses wonderful books to narrate. Her narration/performance is always spot on, this series is no exception. Real and believable, Schnaubelt is able to make the book come alive.

Notes: A few descriptions of intimacy
