His Chance by Sheila Kell is the fourth book in the HIS romance suspense series. This is a book that would appeal most to a mixed audience of mature young adults and adults who enjoy romances with an element of danger mixed in, and who do not mind explicit language and sexual situations. Rylee Hawkins first meets Devon Hamilton when she wakes up in his room in Vegas after a night of drinking. With little to no memory of meeting him, she flees after knocking him out with lamp. Devon Hamilton works at Hamilton Investigation & Security (HIS) and has not been in the field since his time in the CIA, when Greg Donovan was killed four years ago, yet when a member of HIS mentions that Rylee may be in danger, he finds himself being drawn back into fieldwork.
I liked the fact that I was able to enjoy His Chance by Sheila Kell as a standalone novel without any knowledge of the previous books. I felt like I was missing some character development of the Hamilton siblings, but none of that was vital to understanding or enjoying the book. I was originally worried that the book would lean towards being too graphic, due to the elements of trafficking in the book, but Sheila Kell managed to keep the elements realistic without being horrifying. I enjoyed the character interactions between Rylee and Devon, especially as Rylee’s feelings for Devon began to grow, and she realized how much he truly meant to her. I enjoyed this book so much that I am already planning to read the first three books in the series!
