Life comes down to one choice: the love you lose or the love you make

Fat Chance, A Taylor-Made/Take A Chance Novel — Releasing Fall 2015

Hi. I’m twenty-two-year-old Physical Therapist and Personal Trainer, Candace Chance, but you can call me Candy.

In my life I’ve had every opportunity money can buy. You see, my father is Gregory Chance, successful businessman and controlling partner of the Anaheim Avengers, a new NFL franchise in Southern California where I grew up. I’m Greg’s only daughter, so he withholds nothing from me—except his approval. Not that I blame him. While I am smart, charming, loyal, and sweet, I’m also fat—clinically obese according to the team of doctors Greg hired for me.

Last year—my senior year at Stanford—I fell in love with the Cardinal star quarterback, Matt McCallum, and he fell in love too—with my best friend, Taylor. Then things really got crazy, and due to some NCAA violations and legal issues I’m not allowed to discuss, Matt broke up with Taylor, was stripped of his Heisman, and kicked out of college football for life—which really sucks because he was a shoe-in for the Hall of Fame.

Anyway, now my dad’s hired me for the summer to get a new recruit in shape before the Avenger’s training camp, and, you guessed it, Matt McCallum is the undrafted free agent he’s tasked me with. I have three months to get Matt ready for a chance to fulfill his dream and convince him he’s the right man to fulfill mine. Ha, I know what you’re thinking: Fat Chance! Coming Fall 2015

The DataMatch Series

OVERVIEW

The executives at SC Endeavors, Inc. have developed a revolutionary new dating compatibility program that they expect to turn the world of online dating on its ear. They believe they can come within a .02 accuracy of compatibility assessment between two people. With that kind of information, finding the perfect person becomes a simple matter of reading the results and choosing the most compatible match. The company’s top five are willing to put their careers and hearts on the line by being the first to undergo the matching process.

Unfortunately the process is still in the testing stage. There could be hiccups. Actually there will be hiccups—big ones.

While the romance in each story is stand-alone, the surrounding elements build from one story to the next. The DataMatch Serial is my homage to the soap operas of my youth—Days of Our Lives, General Hospital, Young and the Restless.
