Sometimes you read a book that you just can’t put down and this is one of them and as Lisa G says.
“Oh, Molly McAdams only, you know how to pull at my heart strings, break them and THEN slowly put them back together. I am a huge Molly fan – I will always buy every single book from her, even if I want to throat punch her sometimes. ;-)”

Eighteen-year-old Harper has grown up under the thumb of her career marine father. Ready to live life her own way and to 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. She finds herself being torn in two as she quickly falls in love with both her new boyfriend, Brandon, and her roommate’s brother, Chase. Despite their dangerous looks and histories, both men adore Harper and would do anything for her, including taking a step back if it would mean she’d be happy.

Oh, Molly McAdams only, you know how to pull at my heart strings, break them and THEN slowly put them back together. I am a huge Molly fan – I will always buy every single book from her, even if I want to throat punch her sometimes. 😉
This story broke me – literally – ugly tears rolling down my cheeks. I can’t tell you how many times I needed to put this book down and take a breather, dry the tears and walk around. Even with all my breaks I finished this book in less than 24 hours. I was BEYOND obsessed.
This is a love triangle like no other EVER written. Molly introduces you to Harper first, her dad is a marine. Do I need to say anything else about her upbringing? Harper starts college and meets Brandon and Chase. Both of these guys have her heart (AND MINE!) – I LOVED LOVED LOVED them. Honestly, I loved them both BUT Chase… he was special to me. I was rooting for Chase the entire story. Does she choose him? Well, my friends, you’ll need to read this fabulous book to find out.
Harper definitely has some growing up to do – there were times I wanted to strangle her – YET – I absolutely adored her.
This book is ALWAYS the first recommendation I give out – I ALWAYS ask whomever is reading it to talk to me throughout the story. Recently, I recommended to a friend and asked her to please text me while reading it. I was ACTUALLY jealous of her – getting to read this for the first time. Sometimes, I wish I could go back in time and read it for the first time all over again – SAVOR EVERY SINGLE WORD.
THIS. BOOK. IS. MY. ALLTIME. FAVORITE.
Read this book! Have tissues, chocolate and alcohol handy as you will need it!

Tanya Rae’s rating: 5 of 5 stars
One of my bloggers/friend has been hounding me to read Taking Chances and I have to say it has been on my Kindle since Sept 2015 and I have been meaning to read it for a while now. I am so happy that I finally did read this book. Molly McAdams does take you on this emotional roller coaster ride throughout Taking Chances and there are some twists that I never saw happening. I kept sending messages to my friend asking her what did she get me into. There might have been a few curse words there too and I ugly cried while reading Taking Chances. You see I hate to cry and yet I judge a book by the feelings it brings out of me. And, man this book pulled out some very deep emotions. My friend told me that Molly breaks you down and by the end of the book she has put everything back together. And, that is exactly what she did. I don’t give you a synopsis of a book because I feel the author does so much better at that than I do.
This book was not an ARC. I did buy it and will continue to follow Molly McAdams now that I have discovered her and I will even thank my friend and fellow blogger for recommending that I read Taking Chances.
I give Taking Chances 5 very emotional STARS and I look forward to reading more of Molly McAdams books!
