—Publishers Weekly Two lives. Two second chances.
The very definition of a hard-nosed businessman, Adam March has no room in his life for anything but the cold drive to succeed. Not for his social-climbing wife or for his rebellious teenage daughter. Then, in an instant, he loses everything. Adam finds himself alone, unemployed, and reduced to bussing tables in a homeless shelter, serving men he’d always gone out of his way to avoid.Chance was born in an inner-city cellar, a mix of pit bull and God-knows-what. Bred to fight, he lived in a dank, dark, and vicious world. When the moment presented itself, Chance made a break for it in a new life on the street.Thrown together, Adam and Chance fill the holes in each other’s lives. Adam gives Chance his first real home, a haven he never could have imagined, while Chance gives Adam a new start. And a new heart. But will this unlikely friendship withstand the forces that want to tear them apart? "Evokes both laughter and tears, but the ending assures you that humans and dogs are capable of redemption."—Library Journal
