Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn't give too much away! You don't want to ruin the book for others!)

My Tease for this week comes from:

Stealing Harper

(Taking Chances #2)

Molly McAdams

First - The Blurb:

Chase Grayson has never been interested in having a relationship that lasts longer than it takes for him and his date to get dressed again. But then he stumbles into a gray-eyed girl whose innocence pours off her, and everything changes. From the minute Harper opens her mouth to let him know just how much he disgusts her, he's hooked.

But a princess deserves a Prince Charming who can make her dreams come true. Not a guy who can turn her life into a nightmare.

All good intentions go out the window when Harper starts to fall for the guy Chase has come to view as a brother. He wanted to protect her by keeper her away, but he can't stand to see her with anyone else, and he'll do anything to make her his. But when it comes down to Harper choosing between the two, will Chase have the strength to step back from the girl who has become his whole world if it means she's happy?

Lines will be crossed. Friendships will be put to the test. And hearts will be shattered.


Second - The Tease:

She threw out her her arms and let out an exasperated huff. "Was that not obvious? Is it not obvious that I'm in love with you?"

I didn't waste time crushing my mouth to hers. I'd waited so long to hear those words from her. She moaned, and her body melted into mine, her legs going weak. I grabbed behind her thighs and wrapped her legs around my waist as I pushed her against the wall in an attempt to get our bodies closer together. The kiss deepened and I begged her to say it again.

"Chase," she whispered against my lips before grabbing my face to look into my eyes, "I love you."

Third - My Thoughts:

First - Heed the warning - DO NOT read Stealing Harper prior to Taking Chances.

Yeah, I read Taking Chances a while back. Curious to see things from Chases side, I couldn't miss the opportunity of borrowing this book from the library. I should warn, both books are tear-jerkers.

Chase is your typical bad boy who wants the girl but doesn't think he deserves her. Harper is nice girl who has led a sheltered life. (She was raised by her dad on a military base).

When these two come together - sparks fly.

I found this book to be a little easier to read than the first, probably because there was no mystery. I already knew the story and how things would end.

My Rating: 4 out of 5
