Abbi Glines - Take a Chance Book Tour

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines comes the story of Grant, the sexy playboy who first captured readers hearts in Fallen Too Far

When Harlow Manning's rocker father goes on tour, he sends her to Rosemary Beach, Florida, to live with her half-sister, Nan. The problem: Nan despises her. Harlow has to keep her head down if she wants to get through the next nine months, which seems easy enough. Until gorgeous Grant Carter walks out of Nan's room in nothing but his boxer briefs.

Grant made a huge mistake getting involved with a girl with venom in her veins. He'd known about Nan's reputation, but still he couldn't resist her. Nothing makes him regret the fling more than meeting Harlow, who sends his pulse racing. Yet Harlow wants nothing to do with a guy who could fall for her wicked half-sister—even if there are no strings between Grant and Nan. Grant is desperate to redeem himself in Harlow's eyes, but did he ruin his chances before he even met her?

Firstly a HUGE thank you to Atria for getting me the print book all the way in the UK I am a huge fan of this series and could not wait to hold it in my hand, in fact when it first arrived I may have stroked it for a while just to make sure it was real life.

Grant . . . from the moment I first met him when Blaire pulled her shot gun on him I have been intrigued . . . I have wanted to love him, really I have tried but then he had to go a head and sleep with the devil herself, Nan. Oh gosh the hate I feel for her is so strong I am surprised it hasn't reached into the book and slapped her round the face yet. How Grant could want to touch her with his junk let alone anything else is beyond me *sighs*.

Abbi did a great job of making me as a skeptical reader understand his relationship with Nan, I didn't like it but I got it and that is a sign of a lady who knows her business. Sadly my feelings for Nan remain unchanged and when my 'Nan Hater' button arrives I will be wearing it with pride.

Oh Harlow, my dear sweet girl I really did love her as a character - Yes she is a little naive at times but I understand why she is, people have only ever wanted her to get to her father they never wanted to be her friend because of who she is and that really makes me sad. Her dad is . . . well lets just say a little loony and that's all she knows. 

There where times in this book I wanted to march right up to Grant and yell 'I don't like you very much right now' and stomp my feet - Dramatic yet but his face is too pretty to slap, maybe give him a kick in the leg. Harrow is perfect for him, okay he doesn't want to put his heart on the line but sometimes you have to.

I know I have said that Harlow was naive but that doesn't mean she is a push over, Grant will have to work to get in good with her after his lapse in judgement with her half sister (see I cannot even say the evil she devil's name any longer). 

This book literally took hold of me (in reality all of Abbi's books do) and I am waiting in desperate need for the next one - what do I need to do to get it here faster? I may actually wither and melt in desperation!! Overall I loved this book, I loved the emotion I was made to feel whether good or bad it made me feel.

5***** yet again Mrs. Glines.
