Cheri Reviews One More Chance by Ali Vali

One More Chance by Ali Vali

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


I remember, back in my fanfic consuming days, reading the Harry and Desi series and enjoying it. When I saw the published version hit NetGalley, I knew I had to give it a shot.

The story and characters are as I remembered them. What I didn’t factor in is that my tastes have changed. Harry is Vali’s typical perfect butch fighting and loving the perfect femme. I enjoy butch/femme stories, it’s the perfect part that becomes trying for me.

I moved pretty quickly through the first 90% of the book but got burned out on the perfection and over the top romance bits. Again, this is what you usually get from old Ali Vali stories and if you know that going in, you’re probably good to go. I really struggled with that last 10% though. I think I was just ready to end my visit with Harry and Desi.

If you’re a fan of Vali’s old school romances, you’ll very likely enjoy One More Chance.

Thanks to Bold Strokes and NetGalley for the chance to check back in on the Basantes family.
