Description

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?

    The story is told from both Grant and Harlow's POV. This is that typical story about a guy who does everything wrong and yet Harlow is going to forgive him because she cannot control her feelings for him. Harlow will play hard to get and then real him in and then push him away again. Grant will have to prove his worthiness to Harlow. Grant is offered a great gift from Harlow and it scares him off. Family members get wind of this gift and protect Harlow by not allowing him to talk to her. So Grant moves on and when he choses to move on he does so with Nan. Then regret sets in and now he wants to be forgiven and offered a second chance. I try so hard to not be judgmental, but this type of story line grates on my nerves. It is so over used. Why has this type of story become the favorite for authors? I'm tired of reading how guys are too scared to commit to there feelings of love, so they let the good one get away. Then when she moves on he gets jealous and tries hard to win her back when he knows he is undeserving. My favorite part of the story is getting to read about Rush and Blaire. Rush gives great advice to Grant informing him he should take a chance at love and stop being afraid. This story is not as good as the Fallen Too Far series. It's as if it was not written by the same author. It's just too hard to top Rush. That series had a special quality to it that this one was lacking. I never felt drawn or connected with a Grant or Harlow. I believe it suites a younger audience. Take A Chance is not the end for Harlow and a Grant because the ending leads you to believe more stories will follow.
  • Awful ending!

    I absolutely loved this story. Abbie Glines is a true genius. The Rosemary Beach Series will keep you wanting more. Starting with Fallen Too Far, which is Rush and Blaire's story. I loved Grant from book one. He was the good guy with the sweet talking words. Fair warning though. You won't get the happy ever after in this book, but you will get the start of something that will keep you up at night wondering what's gonna happen next. There is a book 2 that is coming to finish Grant and Harlow s story. I can't wait to read it. I'm eager to know how this plays out for them. If you get this book, make sure to start from the first book in this series. You will love it like I do.
  • Wonderful

    What the hell!! I feel like I got cheated. There isn't an ending to this book. It's like Abbi decided she didn't feel like finishing the book or maybe she just wants to make double the money with the sequel to this. I read all her other Fallen books and the ending to those didn't make me feel cheated at all. The story itself is great but the way she ended the book just left a bad taste in my mouth.
  • Worth it

    Grant and Harlow ... Wonderful characters ... The story was well written however there is a cliffhanger which means at least 6 months before the continuation of their story. I don't want to give details away but it's worth buying. My only hope is that the next book is the final installment .. I absolutely adored Rush and Blair but three full installments and another 'in Rush's point of view' book ... that is just too much. Hopefully Grant and Harlow get their happy ever after NO ONE deserves it more than Harlow. I could not put this book down ... I'm so bummed I have to wait until September 2014 for the sequel.

    Another stellar book by the one and only Abbi Glines. Her Ernie's have transformed a small ocean town into a small hometown town. It's like I as living there myself and have a vested interest in everyone that lives there. Grant has been a secret crush of Harlow Manning. Harlow is the good daughter of lead singer Kiro Manning of the legendary rock band Slacker Demon. However Harlow didn't know it but Grant has had a crush on Grant as well. Hold on tight for a roller coaster ride through Rosemary Beach while Grant and Harlow take the lead.
  • Omg u did it again
