Take a Chance by Abbi Glines
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Fans of the Rosemary Beach series have been eagerly anticipating this one. Its the story of Grant Carter who we met (& fell in love with) in Fallen to Far and quiet and shy Harlow Manning, daughter of a mega famous rock star Kiro Manning.
Read my review here...
As Kiro is about to embark on a 9 month tour with his band he decides to send Harlow to live in Rosemary beach with her half sister Nan. Readers familiar with this series know that Nan is a total nut-job, she is the character you love to hate! Nan absolutely despises Harlow and is consumed by jealousy because Harlow is clearly the "loved daughter".
Harlow is not too pleased with the living arrangements however she resigns herself to the fact that its only 9 months. What she doesn't anticipate is running into the handsome smooth talking Grant Carter,the only guy to ever really break through her walls and the guy who Nan is enjoying stringing along. Grant being the good guy that he is has always tried to fix Nan, running to her rescue when no one else cared. He endures and over looks her bitchiness until he realises that she is broken beyond repair and sees her for the manipulative, nasty and emotionally unstable person she is. Grant is shocked when he runs into Harlow and realises he wants to explore the intense attraction he feels towards her, however Harlow isn't having any of it. Grant is determined to convince Harlow that he is through with Nan but its like that old saying says "you can judge a person by the company they keep" and Harlow just cant get past the fact that he has been with Nan.
Can he convince her that he is for real? and can shy and sensitive Harlow finally open up to someone and trust someone with the secret she has been hiding? or will it destroy any chance they may have?
Abbi has done it again! This is such a well written & thought out series. Every book in this series has pulled me into its world and this book was no exception. I fell in love with Grant back in Fallen too far when he filled up Blaire's car with petrol! He totally had me at hello and Harlow, I love that she is a sweet, shy & polite book worm but I also love seeing her spine of steel come through in this book. Nan Ugh I've never hated anyone as much as I hate Nan, even more than a certain twatwaffle I don't care to mention by name ; p. I really cant wait for the continuation of this story. 5 sparkly stars!!!
