Review: Stealing Harper By Molly McAdams

This is Chase’s POV from Taking Chances.

Chase Grayson has never been interested in having a relationship that lasts longer than it takes for him and his date to get dressed again. But then he stumbles into a gray-eyed girl whose innocence pours off her, and everything changes. From the minute Harper opens her mouth to let him know just how much he disgusts her, he’s hooked.

But a princess deserves a Prince Charming who can make her dreams come true. Not a guy who can turn her life into a nightmare.

All good intentions go out the window when Harper starts to fall for the guy Chase has come to view as a brother. He wanted to protect her by keeping her away, but he can’t stand to see her with anyone else, and he’ll do anything to make her his. But when it comes down to Harper choosing between the two, will Chase have the strength to step back from the girl who has become his whole world if it means she’s happy?

Lines will be crossed. Friendships will be put to the test. And hearts will be shattered.

CAUTION: DO NOT READ IF YOU HAVE NOT READ TAKING CHANCES

If you read my review of Taking Chances or hell even if you had any contact with me for about a week after reading it you know, you know how much that book DESTROYED me.  I cried for days, I cried while writing my review, I cried so much my eyes stayed red.  I cursed my book bestie Gabrielle for having me read the book while at the same time loving her for bullying me into reading it.   I wanted to send Molly McAdams a bill for therapy and tissues.  I wanted to have Chase for myself.
So I am sure you are all asking yourselves why in the hell did you read Stealing Harper Janna when you knew what would happen and how upset you were before.  I will tell you why.  I needed Chase’s POV, I needed to see inside his mind and heart to see if all the love I had for him in Taking Chances would be the same in Stealing Harper. I can safely say that no my love for Chase isn’t the same, it is more intense.  I love him even more after reading his POV.
Chase knew he had screwed up when he pushed Harper into Brandon’s life, but he never expected for it to destroy him as much as it did just seeing her with his best friend.  He fought the attraction, he tried to just be friends, but when you are so deeply in love with someone staying away isn’t always easy.  He broke my heart more than once because he just wanted Harper to take a chance on him so he could prove that she was his one and only once and for all.  When we read the events leading up to the end of the book, you feel the anxiety forming because you know what is about to happen and you can’t stop it no matter how hard you wish the words you are about to read weren’t true.  Awe hell I have tears in my eyes again just thinking about it.
Now I am taking a text that I had with my book bestie and this should kind of hint at what I feel for Harper, I wasn’t a huge fan of her in Taking Chances but in Stealing Harper she made me hate her for how much pain she put Chase through.  Okay so here is what I said “I want to do a combo vag kick throat punch bitch slap to Harper”.  Yep that basically sums up how I feel.
I have cried before with books, I am an emotional person so I feel harder than some people might.  Taking Chances and Stealing Harper are books I will never forget.  They will hold a special place in my heart because they made me feel so many emotions so deeply that they imprinted into my heart and soul.  I am looking forward to reading Trusting Liam because I just know that it will be just as amazing as the first two books.  Molly McAdams you have shredded my heart, caused me to go through boxes, yes boxes of tissues, and you have a way to make something that is so painful still be beautiful and moving to your readers.

Review: Taking Chances By Molly McAdams

Her first year away is turning out to be nearly perfect, but one weekend of giving in to heated passion will change everything.

Eighteen-year-old Harper has grown up under the thumb of her career marine father. Ready to live life her own way and to experience things she’s only ever heard of from the jarheads in her father’s unit, she’s on her way to college at San Diego State University.

Thanks to her new roommate, Harper is introduced to a world of parties, gorgeous guys, family, and emotions. She finds herself being torn in two as she quickly falls in love with both her new boyfriend, Brandon, and her roommate’s brother, Chase. Despite their dangerous looks and histories, both men adore Harper and would do anything for her, including taking a step back if it would mean she’d be happy.


Normally I wait until after the tears have stopped flowing before I write a review, it kind of helps with the whole seeing the screen thing but I am almost compelled to do this right now.  I just previously read another of Molly McAdams’ series when my self-proclaimed book bestie Gabrielle (although she really is) almost bullied me into reading Taking Chances saying that this will shred me but I have to read it.  So I gave in pretty quickly and said okay let’s see what all the fuss is about.  I wish I could share my text messages that I sent her during my reading of Taking Chances, but I will spare you my sometime curse word creative bitching while at the same time couldn’t put it down messages about my feelings while reading.
We have Harper, Chase and Brandon in a love triangle that has your emotions on high alert from almost the start.  Chase is this asshole who can get under Harper’s skin like no other but she is falling in love with the bad boy while she is in a relationship with Brandon, the good guy who even though I tried to hate him because I was team Chase from the get go I just couldn’t.  (Bite me Gabrielle I know when you read this you will say some smart ass comment.)  We watch both relationships begin and end because of feelings that can’t be denied aren’t and hearts are broken.  I am warning you right here and now you will need boxes (yes boxes damn it) of tissues because something happens that not only makes you violently throw your kindle one minute but has you so broken down the next that you have to re-read what you just read to make sure it actually says what it does.  Hell here come the tears again just thinking about it. 
Now, am I conflicted about events that happen later in the book?  Yes I am.  Did it make me hate the book?  No it didn’t and do you know why?  Because it still made me feel all those heart wrenching feelings I had felt from the start, but just for another reason this time.  I want to read Stealing Harper right now to get Chase’s POV but I am waiting because I am so emotionally distraught and drained from Taking Chances that I need to go into it with fresh emotions. 

I want to say thank you Gabrielle for making me read this book and I still love you despite what I said to you in my texts when my emotions were so high from what I was reading.  I also want to say that Molly McAdams, damn women you know how to totally destroy your readers and have the talented ability to make us feel so many different emotions that we just don’t know how to turn off those emotions when we are finished with the book.

Blog Tour: Everything Changes By Molly McAdams

bs-changing

ChangingEverything Paisley Morro has been in love with Eli since she was thirteen years old. But being his best friend and wingman, while keeping her feelings under wraps, has grown more difficult with every passing year and every new woman in his life. After twelve years, Paisley is tired of the constant heartache and has finally decided it’s time to lay all her feelings on the table.

Eli Jenkins has the life: his dream job, countless beautiful women, and a best friend who’s the one he counts on for everything else. One conversation, however, threatens to not only change everything between them, but possibly cause Eli to lose the only girl who has ever meant anything to him.

When a family tragedy forces Eli to take a hard look at his life, he realizes life without Paisley isn’t a life at all. Only now, he may be too late.

We first met Eli in Forgiving Lies and Deceiving Lies as the brother to Rachel’s best friend (and well we all know how I feel about the best friend by now).  So I was excited when I started Changing Everything because I was like yes I loved the first two so much that I just know I will love this one as well, but I didn’t.  Don’t get me wrong, I liked it a lot but it fell short of me loving it. 
Eli uses his best friend Paisley as a shield to his ex hook ups more often than not, but he doesn’t realise is that Paisley has been in love with him for so long that every touch or pretend caress hurts her and shatters her heart a little more.  When Paisley finally opens up and tells Eli how she feels he freaks out thinking that he is losing his best friend and basically does a total asshat move and pushes her away. Now here is why I bumped it down from loving it to liking it.  Paisley doesn’t fight for him, she allows him to just walk away instead of making him open up his eyes to what they could have.  It takes someone else and events that happen during the first two books for Eli to pull his head out of his ass to open his eyes.  Which okay is usually what happens in most ex man whore storylines so why did this one just make me mad when others didn’t?  It’s Paisley, I just couldn’t like her and I swear I tried I really did.  I didn’t connect with her and I think for me that is what made me fall just short of loving it.

I am very happy though that I signed up for this blog tour because I finally read an author who I have been wanting to read for a very long time and reading and reviewing Changing Everything kicked me in my ass to read the first book in the series that I just needed that nudge to finally read.


Excerpt: 

Oh the joys of watching the man you love get ready to take another woman home … especially when she’s one bad dye job away from being an Oompa-Loompa. Here’s a little snippet from CHANGING EVERYTHING for y’all! Enjoy!

“Pay!” “Oh no,” I breathed, and looked at Kristen to act like I hadn’t heard Eli. “If he makes me play pool with him while he makes out with another girl again, I will lose it!” “He’s smiling, at least he didn’t see you moping—and he’s walking over here. With her. Right now. He’s—” “Pay, we’re gonna head out, were you ready to leave?” I turned to look at them with a smile plastered on my face, but it was entirely possible I looked like I was grimacing. “Well … ” I began, but the girl in Eli’s arms held up her hand. She made a sickened face as her head jerked up to look at Eli, then back at me. Long seconds passed as she looked me up and down with her lips parted in disgust. “Um … ew! I’m, like, not really into that whole threesome thing. So gross. Yano?” I wanted to remind her that “you” and “know” were two separate words … but with the way she looked, I was surprised she knew that Eli plus her plus me equaled three and not the color burrito, so I kept that to myself. Eli’s face pinched together like he’d eaten something sour, and before he said something that would inevitably crush me even more tonight, I tried to speak his latest pick’s language. “Ohmigod, like, ew, right?” Kristen’s hand flew to her mouth as beer sprayed out, and Eli’s lack-of-amused expression let me know that he knew what I was doing. At least I didn’t feel like I was going to throw up anymore. “Threesomes are so way gross,” I continued, not like I’d know. But the girl nodded her head and pursed her lips. “So, like, is she gonna watch?” she asked, and it took everything in me not to shoot Eli a look that said: Really? This is what you want?- Molly McAdams, Changing Everything 
Molly’s next book will be Trusting Liam: A Taking Chances and Forgiving Lies Novel, available on June 9th, 2015!

Review: Deceiving Lies By Molly McAdams

The irresistible, blazing-hot sequel to New York Times bestselling author Molly McAdams’s Forgiving Lies.

Rachel is supposed to be planning her wedding to Kash, the love of her life. After the crazy year they’ve had, she’s ready to settle down and live a completely normal life. Well, as normal as it can be. But there’s something else waiting—something threatening to tear them apart.

Kash is ready for it all with Rach. Especially if all includes having a football team of babies with his future wife. With his line of work, he knows how short life can be, and doesn’t want to waste another minute of theirs. But now his past as an undercover narcotics agent has come back to haunt him … and it’s the girl he loves who’s caught in the middle.

Trent Cruz’s orders are clear: take the girl. But there’s something about this girl that has him changing the rules and playing a dangerous game to keep her safe. When his time as Rachel’s protector runs out, he will turn his back on the only life he’s known, and risk everything, if it means getting her out alive.


Deceiving Liespicks up where we are left hanging at the end of Forgiving Lies.  I may not have mentioned the cliff hanger in my other review and I didn’t because while I know I at times am vocal about hating cliffhangers so much but that’s because we have to wait for the next book, well Deceiving Lies is available so we will call it one of those forgivable lies I was talking about.
Kash’s past has caught up with him and Rachel is the one who is paying for it.  Not knowing what is going on or why she was targeted makes it so much harder on her.  Even though she is not alone, has someone to watch out for her, she knows that things may never again be the same.  I was honestly surprised at how well she handled herself during this time, I would have been a million times worse but it shows growth on her part and that made me love her character even more.  Were there times that I rolled my eyes at her, yes there was but let’s be honest when don’t we as readers have our own opinions on the characters and how we would do something different. 
Kash had me very very disappointed in him at a couple of points.  He couldn’t open his eyes and see what his actions or inactions were doing to Rachel and I didn’t think he would ever realize just how much Rachel does love him.  I wanted to smack him upside the back of the head and scream don’t be an idiot!
One thing I hated is that the best friend is back in the picture, but luckily for me at least she isn’t in it like the first book.  I am sorry Ms. McAdams but I just can’t stand her, never will.  She needs to fall from the top of a cheer pyramid…

Anyways I am moving on.  I think for me Deceiving Lieswas overall more emotional than Forgiving Lies was.  I will also admit that I loved it more than Forgiving Lies.  I know that Kash and Rachel’s story is wrapped up here but I do hope that we see more of them in the future in other books.

Review: Forgiving Lies By Molly McAdams

A matter of secrets…
Undercover cop Logan “Kash” Ryan can’t afford a distraction like his new neighbor Rachel Masters, even if she’s the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen. To catch a serial killer, he needs to stay focused, yet all he can think about is the feisty, long-legged coed whose guarded nature intrigues him

A matter of lies…
Deceived and hurt before, Rachel would rather be a single, crazy cat lady than trust another guy, especially a gorgeous, tattooed bad boy with a Harley, like Kash. But when his liquid-steel eyes meet hers, it takes all of Rachel’s will-power to stop herself from exploring his hot body with her own.

A matter of love…
As much as they try to keep it platonic, the friction between them sparks an irresistible heat that soon consumes them. Can Kash keep Rachel’s heart and her life safe even as he risks his own? Will she be able to forgive his lies … or will she run when she discovers the dangerous truth?


I am going to be straight up truthful and say prior to reading Forgiving Lies I had never read anything by Molly McAdams.  I have had her books on my kindle for a while now but always kind of kept pushing them off to read something else.  When I signed up to review Changing Everything( my review will post tomorrow so make sure you check back for it)  I knew I had to take the time and do what I always try to do when reading a book that is a part of a series, that being reading the previous books.  So I picked up my kindle and scrolled until I found Forgiving Lies and began to read. And I read and read and read until I finished it and I asked myself why did I wait so long to read this.  Now before I continue, I have heard other people say that this series is a little different than Ms. McAdams’ other books (which I will be reading as soon as I can) so if for some reason this one doesn’t work for you, check out her other books and give it another shot.  Okay now on to my review.
I loved the banter and back and forth bickering between Kash and Rachel.  I think I laughed out loud so many times that people around me thought maybe I was a little crazy.  Kash knew that he needed to keep his focus on the job at hand but Rachel not just knocks him on his ass, nope she runs his ass down like a mac truck and he doesn’t see it coming until bam!  Now he did wrong I won’t disagree with that but I understand why and for me it is a forgiving lie. 
Rachel had been going through hell and she didn’t need Kash to add to it.  I felt so bad for her, I just wanted to say why, why, why would you put up with this shit.  I think that was my only issue with Rachel, she allowed herself to be used as a doormat at times.  I loved how her true personality would come to the forefront when she would bicker with Kash. 
Now I am going to digress very quickly and mention my feelings on the best friend.  Bitch needed a baseball bat to the back of the head, a punch to the throat and a kick to the vagina for ever, ever accusing Rachel of not telling the truth and treating her the way she did.  If I had been Rachel bitch would have no longer been my best friend and I sure as hell wouldn’t have forgiven her.  Seriously can you feel my rage for this twat?

Okay now that I let that out of my system I can move on.  I really enjoyed Forgiving Lies from beginning to end even with my little rant in the paragraph above.  It opened my eyes and had me ask myself what lies would I be able to forgive and what ones would be unforgivable.  You may think you know the answer to that but do you really?  And in case you are wondering why I keep calling them forgivable lies, read the book, you will get your explanation.  Molly McAdams, you have opened my eyes, not just to your writing but to the understanding that sometimes not all lies are bad.

Release Blitz and Giveaway: Letting Go by Molly McAdams


The New York Times and USA Today bestselling New Adult author returns with a sizzling novel of love, loss, guilt, and forgiveness.
Grey and Ben fell in love at thirteen and believed they’d be together forever. But three days before their wedding, the twenty-year-old groom-to-be suddenly died from an unknown heart condition, destroying his would-be-bride’s world. If it hadn’t been for their best friend, Jagger, Grey never would have made it through those last two years to graduation. He’s the only one who understands her pain, the only one who knows what it’s like to force yourself to keep moving when your dreams are shattered. Jagger swears he’ll always be there for her, but no one has ever been able to hold on to him. He’s not the kind of guy to settle down.
It’s true that no one has ever been able to keep Jagger—because he’s only ever belonged to Grey. While everyone else worries over Grey’s fragility, he’s the only one who sees her strength. Yet as much as he wants Grey, he knows her heart will always be with Ben. Still they can’t deny the heat that is growing between them—a passion that soon becomes too hot to handle. But admitting their feelings for each other means they’ve got to face the past. Is being together what Ben would have wanted . . . or a betrayal of his memory that will eventually destroy them both?

Excerpt

Prologue
Grey May 10, 2012
“Then over there is where the girls and I will be waiting before the ceremony starts,” I said, pointing to the all-seasons tent just off to the side. “I think the coordinator said she’d get us in there when the photographer is taking pictures of Ben and the boys on the other side house, so he won’t see me.”
I glanced to my mom and soon-to-be mother-in-law talking about the gazebo behind me, and what it would look like with the greenery and flowers, and I smiled to myself. They’d been going back and forth on whether we should keep the gazebo as it was or decorate it ever since Ben and I had decided on The Lake House as our wedding and reception site. And from the few words I was hearing now, they were still undecided. I honestly didn’t care how it was decorated. I wanted to be married to Ben, and in three days, I would be.
“Grey, this place is freaking gorgeous. I can’t believe you were able to get it on such short notice,” my maid-of-honor and best friend, Janie, said in awe.
“I know, but it’s perfect, right?”
“Absolutely perfect.”
I grabbed her hand and rested my head on her shoulder as I stared at the part of the property where the reception would be. Ben and I had promised our families that we wouldn’t get married until we’d graduated from college, but that had been a much harder promise to keep than we’d thought it would be. School let out for summer a few days ago, and we wanted to move off campus for our junior year … together. That hadn’t exactly gone over well with my parents. They didn’t want us living together until we were married. I think in my dad’s mind it helped him continue to believe I was his innocent little girl.
I’d been dating Ben since I was thirteen years old; the innocent part flew out the window over three years ago. Not that he needed to know that. After a long talk with both our parents, they agreed to let us get married now instead of two years from now.
That was seven weeks ago. Even though Ben had asked me to marry him last Christmas, we’d officially gotten engaged once we’d received the okay from our parents, and had started planning our wedding immediately. Seven weeks of being engaged. Seven years of being together. And in three days I would finally be Mrs. Benjamin Craft.
With how the last few weeks had dragged by, it felt like our day would never get here.
My phone rang and I pulled it out of my pocket. My lips tilted up when I saw Jagger’s name and face on the screen, but I ignored the call. Putting my phone back in my pocket, I kept my other hand firmly wrapped around Janie’s and walked over to where the rest of the bridesmaids were. My aunts and grandma had gathered around the gazebo-debating duo, and were helping them with the pros and cons.
“So what are we going to do tonight?” I asked, hoping to get some kind of information about the bachelorette party.
“Nice try.” Janie snorted. She started saying something else, but my phone rang again.
Glancing down and seeing Jagger again, I thought about answering it for a few seconds before huffing out a soft laugh and ignoring the call a second time. I knew why he was calling. He was bored out of his mind and wanted me to save him from the golf day Ben and all the guys were having before the bachelor party. Normally I would have saved him from the torture of golfing, but today was about Ben. If he wanted to go golfing with all his guys, then Jagger just had to suck it up for his best friend.
Almost immediately after ignoring the call, I got a text from him.
Jagger: Answer the goddamn phone Grey!
My head jerked back when the phone in my hand began ringing just as soon as I’d read the message, and all I could do was stare at it for a few seconds. A feeling of dread and unease formed in my chest, quickly unfurling and spreading through my arms and stomach.
Some part of my mind registered two other ringtones, but I couldn’t focus on them, or make myself look away from Jagger’s lopsided smile on my screen. With a shaky finger, I pressed on the green button, and brought the phone up to my ear.
Before I could say anything, his panicked voice filled the phone.
“Grey? Grey! Are you there? Fuck, Grey, say something so I know you’re there!”
There was a siren and yelling in the background, and the feeling that had spread through my body now felt like it was choking me. I didn’t know what was happening, but somehow … somehow I knew my entire world was about to change. My legs started shaking and my breaths came out in hard rushes.
“I—what’s happ—” I cut off quickly and turned to look at my mom and Ben’s. Both had phones to their ears. Ben’s mom was screaming with tears falling down her cheeks; my mom looked like the ground had just been ripped out from underneath her.
Jagger was talking, I knew his voice was loud and frantic, but I was having trouble focusing on the words. It sounded like he was yelling at me from miles away.
“What?” I whispered.
Everyone around me was freaking out, trying to figure out what was going on. One of my friends was asking who I was talking to, but I couldn’t even turn to look at her, or be sure who it was that had asked. I couldn’t take my eyes off the only other women currently talking on a phone.
“Grey! Tell me where you are, I’m coming to get you!”
I blinked a few times and looked down at my lap. I was sitting on the ground. When had I sat down?
Janie squatted in front of me and grabbed my shoulders to shake me before grabbing my cheeks so I would look at her instead of where my mom and Ben’s were clinging to each other.
“What?” I repeated, my voice barely audible.
Just before Janie took the phone from me, I heard a noise that sounded weighted and pained. A choking sound I’d never heard from Jagger in the eleven years we’d been friends. The grief in it was enough to force a sharp cry from my own chest, and I didn’t even struggle against Janie when she took the phone from me.
I didn’t understand anything that was happening around me, but somehow I knew everything. A part of me had heard Jagger’s words. A part of me understood what the horrified cries meant that quickly spread throughout every one of my friends. My family. Ben’s family. A part of me acknowledged the sense of loss that had added to the dread, unease, and grief—and knew why it was there.
A part of me knew the wedding I’d just been envisioning would never happen.

When she’s not diving into the world of her characters, some of her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling, and long walks on the beach … which roughly translates to being a homebody with her hubby and dishing out movie quotes. She has a weakness for crude-humored movies and fried pickles, and loves curling up in a fluffy comforter during a thunderstorm … or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados. That way she can pretend they aren’t really happening.

When Grey and Ben fell in love at thirteen, they believed they’d be together forever. They never dreamed that three days before their wedding, twenty-year-old Ben would suddenly die from an unknown heart condition, destroying his would-be-bride’s world. Grey would have spent the next two years simply going through the motions if it hadn’t been for their best friend, Jagger. He’s the only one who understands her pain … the only one who knows what it’s like to force yourself to keep moving when your dreams are shattered.

While everyone else worries over Grey’s fragility, Jagger is the only one who sees her strength, and vows to always be there for her-even if it’s only as her best friend. As much as he wants Grey, he knows her heart will always be with Ben. But when Grey finds out that Jagger has loved her since before he even knew what love was, it might prove to be too much for her to handle.
Grey soon realizes their chemistry is undeniable, and they learn that admitting their feelings for each other means they’ve got to face the past. Is being together what Ben would have wanted . . . or a betrayal of his memory that will eventually destroy them both?

Review: Taking Chances by Molly McAdams

To sum it up: Eighteen year old Harper has grown up under her career Marine of a father’s thumb. Ready to live life her own way and experience things she’s only ever heard of from the jarheads in her father’s unit; she’s on her way to college at San Diego State University. 

Thanks to her new roommate, Harper is introduced to a world of parties, gorgeous guys, family and emotions. Some she wasn’t expecting yet, and others she never knew she was missing.

She finds herself being torn in two as she quickly falls in love with her boyfriend Brandon, and her roommate’s brother Chase. Covered in tattoos, known for fighting in the Underground and ridiculously muscled…they’re exactly what she was always warned to stay away from, but just what she needs. Despite their dangerous looks and histories, both adore and would do anything for Harper, including stepping back if it means she’s happy. 

Her first year away is turning out to be near perfect, but one weekend of giving in to heated passion will change everything…

★★★Id say this book deserved 3 ½ stars! ★★★

I have to admit, this is probably one of the toughest reviews that I’ve ever written- my emotions are all over the place right now, and I feel so conflicted with how I really felt about this story. If I had written this review while reading the first half of the book, I probably wouldn’t have had too much good to say- but after finishing the book, my feelings have definitely changed for the better.

FYI: There won’t be any spoilers in this review- I wouldn’t want to ruin the reading experience for anyone by giving anything in this book away…

Harper: I may as well go ahead and admit that I wasn’t a big fan of the heroine. There wasn’t one redeemable quality about her in my opinion that made every guy she came into contact with, fall head-over-heels in love with her. Never once throughout this entire book did I ever understand what was so special about her character- could it be the fact that she was a virgin? Or maybe it was because she was inexperienced… with everything. Whatever the reasoning, I never did end up understanding it. 

Brandon: I loved him right away- I’m probably in the minority here, but I was a big fan of him. He had so many wonderful qualities, and is most definitely the type of man any woman would be lucky to have. Not only did he have the looks to kill, but he was also selfless and forgiving- a man who never backed down, even when life knocked him to his knees. Unfortunately though, his honesty and faithfulness was taken advantage of in the worst kind of way. I really respected his character though, and commended him for being such a strong person through everything and for everyone- although, his use of the word “sweetheart” was a bit over the top. I know that perhaps it was just a quirky thing that probably only I noticed, but I couldn’t help but feel like it was a bit over-the-top and caused more eye rolling than swooning.

Chase: It was hard for me to grasp why he fell for Harper- from her initial first meeting with him, she was nothing but rude. Perhaps what drew her to him most was the fact that she was always out of reach to him. As much as I eventually got to know Chase, I just never connected with him on the personal level that I connected with Brandon. His character just seemed to be thrown from page to page, where he was either trying to keep his distance from Harper for one reason or another, or he was throwing himself at her. He was willing to be a completely different man and everything Harper would want him to be, but I never understood why.

I think what it all comes down to when it comes to the characters in this story, is that it was just missing a lot of depth for me. There was just so much that I felt was missing. I’m also not one to complain about the length of a book at all, but this story definitely just kept going… and going… and going… I felt like the book could have easily ended at so many different parts, but instead I felt like the author tried her best to wrap everything up in a nice and pretty bow- I can understand that there were many lose ends that needed to be wrapped up, but there were also some unnecessary situations added into the story towards the end that I didn’t feel were needed. 

With that being said though, I’m sure many of you who have read reviews or status updates on this book know that there’s a big jaw-dropping scene that will throw you into a frenzy. And I have to admit… after reading it and suffering through a complete shock, I pushed through and made myself continue on with the rest of the story- and I’m definitely glad that I did, because I felt like the ending and everything that happened after that incident really helped to get my mind off of the sheer horribleness of what had happened. I’m all about happy endings, and the author definitely did a good job wrapping the story up in the best way possible after what had happened.

While reading this story, I never really chose a “guy team” that typically happens when reading a book revolving around a love triangle theme. At times I felt like I was leaning towards one guy, and pages later I would be leaning towards the other- but while I can understand the reasoning for what the author did in the story… I just didn’t think it was necessary and I felt like it made readers feel forced to feel a certain way.

One down-side for me was the similarity between this book and Beautiful Disaster. (Which I wasn’t a fan of.) …And although I did become invested in this book and the characters, I just didn’t really feel a connection to them- The lovey-dovey stuff that we all live for in our romance novels definitely went over-board for me at times, and something always continuously felt lacking for me, which had me feeling like so many things were poorly developed. 

I know I’m in the minority here when I say this, but what started off on a bad note for me ended on a good one, despite a few things I could have dealt without. This is definitely an emotional story and not one that I regret reading. After reading this, I’ve looked at the fragility of life and second chances in an entirely new perspective …And as much as this novel broke my heart, it did eventually mend, and took me on an emotional and moving journey that I definitely won’t forget.
