Taking Chances by Molly McAdams

Thursday, November 29, 2012
Synopsis: 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+

Review: Taking Chances by Molly McAdams was a fantastic read. I loved Harper. I thought it was great that we have a character who goes from such a conservative home to open freedom in College. I think it speaks a lot about going away for college, at least to me it does. I could definitely relate to Harper's excitement and newness to being on her own. I think what makes this book so great is that the author takes you on a journey and you think you know how it's going to end and then suddenly everything changes. As a warning, this book might make some readers mad especially when you feel invested in characters. I think that, that emotion that comes from the reader is really what makes this book so great. McAdams does a wonderful job making you fall in love with her characters and the story. Taking Chances reminded me a lot of Beautiful Disaster but with a strange twist. Overall, I loved this book and it is an emotional roller coaster! But I loved it. My only complaint would be that I wish more would've been done with Harper's military friend. It seemed over the top that he was interested in her as well (because then it seems like EVERYONE likes her) and that thread in the story had a weird ending to it, it almost seemed thrown in there.
