Everyone knows you should never say never. Cooper Moore never saw Maggie Williams coming. She was just his best friend’s little sister, the curly-haired, freckle-faced girl from Mississippi who was absolutely off limits. And he never thought about her any other way — not until he saw her that night, broken and brave. From that moment on, he knew he’d do whatever it took to protect her, even if it meant he had to stay away. Maggie never expected to find her fiancé banging her maid of honor an hour before she was set to walk down the aisle, but life’s funny that way. The only option to save her sanity is to get the hell out of Jackson and move to New York where her brother lives. The only downside: Cooper is there too. And she just doesn’t know if she can stay away from him — the filthy rich, dead sexy playboy who’s allergic to commitment. The second Maggie sees him again, she realizes he’ll be impossible to resist. Luckily, commitment is the last thing on her mind, and Cooper is the perfect escape. As long as she can keep her heart in check, everything will be just fine. Because she can never have feelings for him. Or at least that’s what she’ll keep telling herself. Chaser is a standalone romantic comedy and book 2 of the Bad Habits series.
Five (HUGE) Boundless Stars
Ommmmgggg.. yes I know that can’t be all I include in my review. But really that’s all it needs to describe the awesomeness that is Chaser. Now starting out, I thought, Oh this isn’t going to be as good as With a Twist, no one can take the place of Lily and West. But of course I was wrong.
There are so many layers to Cooper. He lets people see, what he wants them to see. He keeps a lot to himself. Him and Maggie are just really perfect for each other. There is a part of the book where their Playing Truth or Dare. I was laughing so hard. It was seriously one of the greatest scenes.
Again, Kirsten Leigh. She has an amazing ability. I love how she gives each character their own voice. None of them sound exactly the same. I’ve listened to Audiobooks before, where it’s just a male voice and a female voice. Done by just a Female. How she does it really envelopes you in the story because you're not paying attention to whose doing the voice. The only way I can describe it is like Orphan Black. The actor plays all these parts and it’s just one of her.
I just really hate that I took so long to start reading this series. When you're reading a book or listening and you're putting yourself in the story. That’s really the best part about reading. The feeling like you're part of their story. The nerd in me got excited when Cooper told the story of Rogue and Gambit (My all time favorite X-Men) Their love story, is heartbreaking but they had to do what they had to do.
This is a HUGE Five Star read for me. I just really loved this book. I can’t wait to jump into Last Call. Which I may have already downloaded.
