Publisher's Summary

Her first year away is turning out to be nearly perfect, but one weekend of giving in to heated passion will change everything.

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.

    "Disappointed"

    This story dripped with cheese. I just felt like there were way too many times when I rolled my eyes at the character/author. It was incredibly predictable, with one major exception. I couldn't seem to wrap my brain around the desire every man had to be with Harper. I just wasn't convinced she was the bees knees. I read through about 60% and then skimmed the rest. It just wasn't worth my time, and since it was an audio book, it was a lot more time. Disappointed .

    Story
    "SO frustrating and disappointing"

    I found this book to be terrible. I initially enjoyed the story and got quite into it. however I fairly quickly got annoyed with the protagonist Harper. I couldn't figure out why everyone was so nuts about her. I found there to be so much extra scenes and information that didn't add to the overall story. The time jumps could be jarring and make me go wtf. I found so much of the story cheesy and totally unrealistic. I rolled my eyes a lot and am haven't been able to finish the last quarter of the book as it's just too ridiculous. The narrator is great though.

    "what words..."

    absolutely LOVED the first 60% of this book. SO SO SO good till the climax & then it just kind of went MEH...STILL GOOD but lost it's 5th star. After the climax it just got a little slow and there were some things that really annoyed me that I can't say without giving anything away.
    I loved Brandon, LOVED Chase! I wanted to smack Harper several times throughout the book.
    I laughed, bawled my eyes out, got a little bored but ultimately loved this book

    "Fantastic book!"

    Wow, what a fantastic book! I just finished reading this over a 2 day time period. I had to stop because I was crying so much! This book is so loving and touching. It is filled with so much raw emotions too. The narrator is freaking fantastic to top it off! I fell like I just finished a movie, it was that good!

    This book is about a young woman (Harper) who was raised by a bunch of marines as she sets off for college. There she meets two great guys (Brandon and Chase) and falls in love with both of them. What is a girl to do? It turns out, the two guys are friends too. Read along as Harper is romanced by both Brandon and Chase and not in the way it sounds. Make sure you have a BIG box of tissues! Every girl needs to be loved and cherished like this!

    The author, Molly McAdams did a fantastic job writing this book. The plot is great. The suspense and love is amazing! I can only imagine the author crying as she wrote this book too. The narrator, Anadelle Waters is just freaking awesome in her delivery of this story! All the voices and accents AND emotions she delivers as she reads this story to us. It felt so real!!! All I can say is thank you for such a great read!

    "one of the best"

    OMG......I couldn't put it down. I loved the story line and all the players in it. The way I judge a book....if it makes me laugh out loud, it's good but it have me in tears, it's a keeper. Well damn it did BOTH. I have listened to it twice. loved it.

    "I LOVE THIS BOOK!!!!"
    What made the experience of listening to Taking Chances the most enjoyable?

    I am in love with this book! Molly McAdams is an amazing author I love her work and I have read this book many times on my own but wanted to buy the audible so I could listen to the book on the way to work, at work, and on the way home.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Chase is my favorite character and you will just have to read the book to know why :)


    Did Anadelle Waters do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    She did okay I felt like her voice was a little mono-toned


    Who was the most memorable character of Taking Chances and why?

    Chase again you will have to read the book to see :)

    "Not as bad as some people made it out to be!"

    Yes, a lot of the storyline was predictable, but I still enjoyed the ride. I was engaged enough to laugh and cry with the characters appropriately. Remember , it's a fictional story so you are allowed to stretch your boundaries of belief with what some people are willing to do for others. It's called using your imagination! It's also what makes books in general such a pleasure to read. It makes you think about something differently and maybe open you up to a new perspective on how to approach a situation.
