Publisher's Summary

From number-one New York Times best-selling author Abbi Glines comes the story of Grant, the sexy playboy who first captured listeners’ hearts in Fallen Too Far.

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 her?

    Story
    "What kind of cliffhanger was that?!?!"

    I liked the book but not the ending because to me there was no true ending. I cant even qualify this as a cliffhanger. Normally I genuinely love Abbi Glines but this book started getting on my nerves!! There were a few things about this book that I did not like. It wasn't that the storyline was bad but it was the relationship between the two leads that did not make sense to me. This is the first couple in the series I just didn't feel the connection with.
    Grant was a complete whorish douchbag! I just can't forgive him especially after the "twins".
    It was interesting to learn more about Harlow and why she was so secluded all the time. There were a lot of unexpected secrets in this story. I wish Harlow didn't give into Grant so easily.She should have made him work for it a little harder, a lot harder actually. However, I did enjoy Grant for his dirty mouth. The Rosemary Beach boys are really good at that.
    Abbi Glines definitely knows how to write some hot and dirty scenes and that's exactly what you get in Take A Chance. Along with the dramatic twists and turns (especially near the end), and the very alluring characters. I wil read the next book but I'm not sure if it will help endear me to Grant.

    "Seriously I have to wait how many months???"

    MAJOR FREAKING CLIFFHANGER!!! Next book isn't coming until after summer...I may lose my mind. I like Harlow and Grant, though really Grant can be a major idiot! The whole thing with Nan...really dude, seriously? why has no one just put her out of her misery yet?

    Okay, so I like this series, I live the characters, I enjoyed catching up with previous couples, etc. I would have liked to have seen a lot more with this couple, we saw some good progress but there is a long way to go. I would wait on this until closer to the release of the next. I think I like Wood's book more, possibly best, but this is good and I will continue. Once the next one comes I will listen to this again, possibly all of them again because they are good. Rush does piss me off in the very beginning but I get over that.

    "It was just ok"
    Any additional comments?

    I love Abbi Glines so I was really dissappointed in this book. Her writing and characters are typically amazing. I just couldn't connect with the characters, I felt like I didn't know anything about them. Grant was shallow and didn't really do anything but sleep with women. Unfortunately, I was most dissappointed in Harlow's character. She was kind of weak and didn't seem to have any goals or aspirations in life. Normally the author writes about really strong women who have goals and who are survivors. Harlow didn't have any goals or plans for the future.

    I hate to only criticize so I will say that the love scenes are good and I enjoyed hearing about Rush, Blaire, Woods and Della.

    Story
    "GLINES TOOK A BIG CHANCE ON THIS ONE!!!"

    I already knew I was going to have a hard time with this story because of the reviews, but I have really enjoyed the Rosemary Beach series, so far, and simply needed to keep going. So I recruited the help of a reading buddy to read/listen along with me so we could be a support group to one another...lol, Crazy right? Well, let me tell you that I needed that support throughout this book because about 20 minutes into it, it was an almost DNF. In fact, it was an almost DNF up until about 60% of the book.

    Glines really took a chance in writing Grant and Harlow's story because of Grant's tangled previous relationship with Harlow's half sister Nan (who is a bonafide biotch of the first degree). Harlow and Nan are half sisters and the daughters of rock star legend, Kiro, and along with that connection, there were so many relational aspects of this story that did not make sense to me. For instance....why would Kiro have Harlow (his favorite and beloved daughter) live with Nan (his venomous daughter who HATES Harlow) in Rosemary Beach, in the SAME house????? I NEVER understood that completely. But, the hardest part was how Grant got involved with Harlow after his relationship with Nan began to disintegrate. I know that he had an instant attraction to Harlow, and she made him feel things he had never experienced before but, Oh MY GOODNESS, really??? You're going to fall in love with your EVIL-BITCHY ex-girlfriend's half sister???? Now if that wasn't a doozy, the hardest part of the story between Grant and Harlow is HIS behavior after he was with Harlow. UGH, that infuriated me beyond belief!!!! Look, I really do like Man-Whores, but only after they STOP Man-whoring after they find the love of their life!!!! What the heck Grant???? His excuse was fear....wow...that dam fear.....

    Anyway, I don't think I will ever get over how badly Grant messed up on Harlow after being with her!!!! UGh!!! And, I really liked Grant from previous books. He was the fun and very caring playboy of the group of gorgeous men in Rosemary Beach.

    Well, the reason I finished this book was because of sweet Harlow. I mean, I needed to see the girl through this mess! Also, because of her cowboy, half-brother Mase who was so awesome and protective--Loved Him. Lastly, because of the the incredible story that was revealed about her mother, Emily and Kiro's amazing love. OMG, that took my breath away!!!!!

    Even though this book does not end well, I'm pushing to the next book because I'm an optimist and hoping Grant redeems himself, especially in light of Harlow's secret coming out.....

    Narrators: Shayna T. and Jack D. did a very nice job with this audiobook. It took me a while to get used to Shayna's voice, but overall, I believe she did a good job.

    If you could sum up Take a Chance in three words, what would they be?

    Great love story


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Take a Chance?

    The end was not what I expected.


    Any additional comments?

    This was one of the best books in the series and I can only hope that we are not left hanging. Grant and Harlow belong together and the ending in this book leaves you begging for the rest of the story. Please tell me it's not over????!!!!

    Story
    "Good, but, made me want to slap somebody!!"

    You know how there are 'teasers' of future stories/spin offs that are written into a book within a series? Well, the teaser for this story had me more riveted than the full story! I'm exaggerating a bit, but, I think it could've been better. The narrators left a lot to be desired and I think that frustrated me at times, especially Harlow's narrator--it was like she'd just learned how to read & speak. Grant's narrator was decent but had a lot of angst and added dramatics in his voice when it seemed totally unwarranted. Now that I've made you completely disinterested :) I should say that, I'm a sucker for these characters and can't wait for the next book, however, to my dismay, yet again, Abbi Glines gave us a FREAKING CLIFFHANGER! I really think the conclusion to Grant's and Harlow's story will be really good, because I'm hoping Grant will grow a pair and just love Harlow the way she deserves.

    Story
    "In Abbi We Trust"
    What did you love best about Take a Chance?

    The characters are the best part of this book. Getting to know Harlow and her strength. Finding out Grant is not as perfect as he seems in the previous Rosemary Series books. In fact sometimes you out right want to slap him in this book. Meeting Mace, Harlow's brother, and seeing just how much he loves and will protect her. Meeting and really getting to see the real Kiro and his capacity to love. The surprise that it is possible to hate Nan more than you did in the last book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Harlow was my favorite character. I loved her strength and her ability to handle everything that was thrown at her. As Grant put it in the book "her ability to cut deep with no drama".


    What does Shayna Thibodeaux and Jack DuPont bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I thought the Shayna Thibodeaux and Jack DuPont did an amazing job. It was their vocals that help give the reader so much passion for the characters. You really feel that Harlow and Grant are telling their stories.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Harlow deserves soooooo much better...seriously!


    Any additional comments?

    In all the Rosemary Series books before this one I have loved Grant. But in this book I just wanted to slap him for being so weak and for making such stupid decisions. Grant was bit whinny in this book (funny I usually say that about the female characters, not male) but I am sure after reading One More Chance, Grant will redeem himself and I can continue my love for him cause right now I just want to smack him! That is why "In Abbi We Trust." Because I believe in One More Chance, Grant will atone for his horrible decisions and be the man that Harlow not only needs but deserves!

    I love Abbi Glines.
    I love this series.
    However, this book ends and you are left with your mouth open....like, that's it?!?!
    Harlow and Grant's story is lovely. I love how innocent Harlow is. That is, until Grant gets her to act all naughty!
    Of course you have to read it if you have started this Rosemary Beach series. Worth the credit =)
