Invited to an ex-girlfriend’s wedding some sixteen hours away by plane, Noah Colfee is certain of three things: long-haul flights should be outlawed by the Geneva Convention, he doesn’t particularly want to see Suyin again, and he definitely knows the handsome stranger loitering in the lobby of his hotel.
The family resemblance between the man making eyes at him and Noah’s ex-girlfriend is so uncanny that they could be siblings. There’s just one problem: Suyin has just one sibling—a sister.
With lavish wedding festivities underway, Noah’s moods swing wildly between overwhelmed and restless as his hopes of a painless break are scuppered by the presence of a former lover. But if past is prophecy, Noah already ran off his lover eight years ago. Is there any sense in hoping for second chances?

                                         NO HEAT RATING

Far Chance is the third book in the A Touch of Love series by Helena Maeve.  I can say the book had potential to be a very good book.  I like the idea of a transgendered man meeting the man he fell in love with as he was transgendering  later in life after he transgendered.  
Noah is visiting college friends, he is attending a wedding of an old college friend.  From the sounds of it he likes her okay but really doesn’t consider her a good friend.  At one point I wondered why he bothered to come at all. He seemed well non involved.
Alex he once broke Noah’s heart when he was a girl. Now that he is a man Noah still wants him. Noah is now gay at this point in the book and open about it.
These two really do not get together till the book ends. Then that is it. Like whoosh we are done.  I felt if the story was finished and longer I would have loved it. But as it is right now I think it’s a potentially good half finished story.  I would have liked to have seen a few issues resolved. Such as their feelings for each other now, what is going to happen to them, heck are they ever going to have sex?  Anything.  For a start of a story this is a great read, if you want an entire well developed story this is not the book to pick up.
