“People fall in and out of love all the time, and sometimes people have numerous loves throughout their lives. But you have two epic loves and no matter who you were with,
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.
Due to sexual situations and language, this is Mature YA/New Adult. Recommended for ages 17+
Where to begin...oh where to begin with Ms. Molly McAdam's book, Taking Chances!!! I am seriously in love with this book and these characters so this review may be a little high on the excitement side and it may contain many exclamations marks!!! Just know you've been forewarned!!!
Who do I start with... hunky polite and oh so sweet Brandon or sexy, cocky and oh so bad Chase??? Have you ever eaten a sundae with multiple flavors and one topping be so good then you taste the other and it's equally as good but one is just a little sweeter than the other? That's Chase and Brandon!!! You want to eat both of them right up and you ping pong back and forth between these guys emotionally throughout the entire book.
Chase will piss you off, make you want to drop your panties and break your heart all at the same damn time! Yes, Molly McAdams has created a sexy torturous character in Chase that will work you over real good ladies. He's bad but it's ooooh so good!
Brandon's such a wonderful, strong, big hearted guy who will melt your heart and make you swoon. He's such a gentleman and loves Harper so much. He will give you gooseys with his sweet pillow talk and his even sweeter protective ways. This is the guy you want to bring home to Mama for sure!
Harper...hmmmm. Let me just say it's hard for me to like a cheater in any book. But the author did such a great job developing this character that you love her no matter what and you struggle right along with her as she fights her inner battle of loving two guys at once. Yes, at times I wanted to reach in my Kindle and ring her neck and slap some sense into her but then there were other times that I just wanted to give her a tub of Ben and Jerry's and cry with her.
Taking Chances took me on a roller coaster ride that turned my insides upside down! I laughed and I cried buckets while reading this book. My favorite books are the ones that can make me do both of those things. This was one of my top favorite reads of 2012, so if you haven't read it yet you should check it out and I promise you it will be one of your favorites of 2013!
