Oh, where do I start? TAKING CHANCES by Molly McAdams just
heart. Molly ripped my heart out and stomped on it! It was
just THAT good!
I cried my eyes out the whole time reading it and I know it
will do the same
thing to you. TAKING CHANCES is the story of Harper. She
away to college and leaving the only life she has ever known
for the very
first time. Her father, a career Marine, has raised Harper
alone since her
mother died. Her Dad is very strict and Harper is very
naive. She is
excited to get out from under his thumb and experience life.
She meets her
new room mate Breanna. Thanks to Bree, she is introduced
to college life
at its fullest. She also meets Bree's brother Chase who
catches her eye
right away. She feels an instant attraction to him but he
is the type of guy
who always has a different girl on his arm and has no qualms
embarrassing Harper every chance he can get.
Harper tries to fight her feelings for Chase but there is
some kind of
connection she just can't turn say from. Soon she meets one
of his room
mates, Brandon and they start going out. While she is
falling in love with
Brandon, she finds herself being pulled to Chase. She cant
feelings for either one of them. She knows it's wrong but
what can she do?
Chase is the ultimate bad boy that every girl wants to
change. Brandon is
the sweetest guy she has ever met. Both of them adore
Harper and will do
anything to make her happy even if it means walking away
Her first year away at college is turning out to be pretty
exciting until that
one weekend when she gives in to her heart and everything
is where your heart will break for Brandon. I too fell in
love with him right
away. He was so forgiving and loving. How could anyone hurt
was supposed to be his friend. A friend who couldn't stay
Harper. He knew of the connection between the two of them,
could see it
every time they were in the same room, but he tried not to
let it bother him.
Easier said then done right?
TAKING CHANCES puts you on an emotional roller coaster. It
will tug at
your heart and then it will just reach in and yank it out of
your chest!! I have
never cried so hard reading a book before. This was the
first time I've read
Molly's books, but I'm not stopping now! She has a way of
pulling you in
from the very first page and never letting you go. She will
life and time until you finish reading. TAKING CHANCES is
the type of
book that says with you long after you finish reading it. I
will never forget
the way I felt reading this book.
Eighteen year old Harper has grown up under her career

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