Stealing Harper by Molly McAdams

Stealing Harper (Taking Chances, #2)
Good Reads Summary
Stealing Harper by Molly McAdams

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 keeping 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’ll be happy?

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


My Thoughts
here's a first: no stars.

i blame myself really. i mean, i did hate the first one, didn't i? why i picked this one at all when the gr synopsis clearly states it's the same story just told from one of the douches' perspective, i still don't know. (i hate myself, perhaps?)

it's not like the ending was going to change. (and it's not like it was the ending in the first book that had me wanting my hours back to begin with...though from what i've gathered plenty feel it was an ending that should not have been.)

anyway, if you've read the first, i need not go over it here. if you haven't, don't. i'm kidding! (or am i?) pick up any other book of this type and you'll get the gist: new girl. no experience. bad boy. love. lust. sweat. drama. drama. baggage. drama. crazy declarations of love. maybe some growling from the male lead. only here, double up on the growling alpha types.

have i gained  a deeper understanding of who chase is and the things that make him tick. uhm... NOPE. if anything, now i'm not just questioning what the boys were seeing in harper... i'm also questioning what the hell she was seeing in him! this pov's opened my eyes even more to what a douche he was. so the good... the good.. the good... hmm: double portions of chase? personally, that isn't such a positive, as he's turned out to be double portions of douche.
