Book Review - Take a Chance (Chance #1; Rosemary Beach #6) by Abbi Glines - New Adult

ABOUT THE BOOK



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



REVIEW


This is the story of Grant and Harlow.  This is not a stand alone, so if you haven't read the previous books in the series, go back and read them -- they are worth it.

I have loved Grant since the first book in the Rosemary Beach series. Harlow is also a likable and relatable character. She’s shy yet spunky, which makes her interesting. Sometimes they both needed a big smack across the head, but they were acting normally for characters their age. It was nice seeing the characters from the previous books again, and I am really hoping Mase gets his own story eventually because he is a great character as well.

I look forward to the next book in Grant and Harlow’s story.

OVERALL RATING - 4.5 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - VERY steamy
