      I have never - never - been more enraged in a book.I didn't finish reading it. I quit at about sixty percent and skimmed the rest. I couldn't bear to do it. I'm not brave enough. The book outraged me. You're going to be hearing a lot of these words, so prepare yourself.SynopsisTAKING CHANCES is incredibly cliché and must've been done a billion times before. A lot of 'New Adult' books simply follow the same trend, but the only one I've found worth reading isEasy.The book follows Harper, an eight [...]

      Non spoiler review – Spoiler review at the very bottom, but you will have enough time NOT to read it.TEAM CHASE!!!! I finished this book 8 hours ago and I was hoping once I had a few hours to think about the events that happened, I would have a different opinion. Well, 8 hours later and I still feel the same. When I started Taking Chances, I was really looking forward to it and you know what, it was so damn good too. Within 4% of reading, I was hooked. It had similarities to Beautiful Disaster [...]

      I'm not in the mood for an in depth review right now. I'm so devastated. My heart is crushed to its core. A beautiful story and a lovely ending but I can't seem to accept the bittersweet truth of it all.Because I was shocked utterly shocked! The twist is an uber blow, I swear I didn't see it coming. So allow me to show you how I feltI was like thisAnd thisThen thisI'm glad Brandon and Harper have their happy ending But is it so wrong to wish one for Chase? I'm sorry but all I have right now is t [...]

      This review was posted atMy Secret RomanceI'm an emotional wreck right now. I think I'm going to need therapy after reading this book. I am devastated and distraught with too many emotions that I can hardly think straight.I don't even know where to begin. This book was a bittersweet find for me. It has everything I love in my angsty reads- and the one thing I hate. Raised by her strict Military single father, Harper grew up around jar heads her entire life. She doesn't have a normal relationship [...]

    • Angela says:

      Alright, *cracks knuckles* let's do this.Taking Chances was like reading Beautiful Disaster all over again. I was past being annoyed. Every single person and event in this book set me off. This book had me laughing at it, not with it. Harper is one of the most throat punching females I've read in the longest. She comes from a very sheltered background. VERY ridiculously sheltered. Girl hasn't even gone to a mall before. Yeah, I don't believe it either. I get that your dad is a strict marine guy, [...]

    • Tough Critic Book Reviews says:

      This book should come with a warning labelI'm scared of bananas. True story. I'm absolutely terrified of a yellow fruit shaped like a penisI feel sorry for inanimate objects. I once bought the ugliest bird shaped candle just because I was afraid nobody else would. I named him HerbertI think that every time someone renews their driver's license they should be required to take a test on the rules of a four-way stopI've never kissed a girl and I'm pretty sure I'm the only human being with a vagina [...]

      I tried guys, I tried.For those people who have messaged me and told me to not be so critical when I haven't finished the book. Well I tried. AGAIN. FOR YOU. And AGAIN, I JUST COULDN'T.There's just so many things wrong with this book. Even if I read it to the very end I can most assure you Taking Chances lovers that my views will never change. I ask that you respect my views and if you do not well. write your own review simple. I COULDN'T FINISH THIS. IT WAS TOO HEARTBREAKING, I CHOKED UP AS MY [...]

    • Erin says:

      Let me see if I can scrape together the pieces that are left of my shattered heart and try to come up with a way to review this book. I debated for a few days whether or not I wanted to bother, but I decided to go ahead for one reason, and that is to give the character I fell head-over-heels for the attention and remembrance that he didn't get in this story. I freely admit that I'm an emotional reader. I read as an escape, to immerse myself in the thrills, suspense, romance, and beautiful writin [...]

    • Nora says:

      I'm blown away reading these reviews. I'm sorry, but am I the ONLY one who found this book painfully predictable and poorly written? Am I the only one who saw the picture-perfect characters and situations completely unrealistic? I may be a happy girl with a happy life, but even I was rolling my eyes SO OFTEN at the cheese factor. Why did I keep reading? Because I never start a book and don't finish, it's just a thing. (Some tiny spoilers in this review but nothing major. Just general ranting).An [...]

    • Akanksha❤ Søren♰ says:

      Oh boy! I think I found my new favorite book :') It was just I don't have words at the moment.It was so much like Beautiful Disasters, Thoughtless and Vampire Diaries(the show, without the fiction) and yet so much more ❤A total emotional roller coaster, I cried, I laughed, I blushed, I was shocked, I fell in love with two wonderful guys tonight! Stayed up the whole night to finish the book, reach the end and damn was it worth loosing sleep over.The twist which is comes around 50% through the b [...]

      TO: MOLLY MCADAMS--- “FOR THE NEXT FIVE MINUTES, WE ARE NOT FRIENDS."This book ripped my heart out and left me in mourning. I had to gather the strength to read on and finish. How can it be that the main character is blissfully happy and I am utterly miserable to the very end of this amazing story?There are three drool worthy guys included in this book, but one of them stole my heart from the very beginning: “Oh My God! Princess! You're my new favorite." I fell completely in love! I found my [...]

    • Limonessa says:

      That I subject myself to stuff like this over and over again can only be definitive proof of my masochistic tendencies. I really don't know why I choose these absurd stories, un-freaking-believable, where the characters are clearly made out of cardboard, where the writing is bad, bad, bad and the editing is worse, where there isn't an original idea even if you look for it with a microscope and which are also about 75% too long than needed. I kid you not, I was at 30% and had the impression that [...]

      My thoughts on Taking ChancesI felt myself being pulled back and forth between Chase and Brandon, I couldn't decide at first but I decided on Brandon, and I have to say he was my choice throughout. And yes, I know I am in the minority! So Harper's actions peeved me off no end!!!!!However, my thoughts on that is that here's this girl who has been like a bird locked in her cage throughout her life, starved from love with no Mum and a Dad who she respected but had a pretty cold and no affection rel [...]

      Revision 10/07/12 because I laughed my ass off that this new book already made it to number 1 on Listopia's Books that seriously piss you offd Shark Contemporary week rolls onI made it a goal before finishing Taking Chances to remain zen for the writing of this review, knowing full well that the last part of the book might set me on edge. Well guess what? I'm perfectly okay.Look at me, I'm not raging! It's an early Christmas miracle!See, the thing is, the part of the book that was supposed to ma [...]

    • Isamlq says:

      We suspend our disbelief, and not our intelligence in reading. So, know that plenty moments in this had me calling BS (never been to a mall, my patootie.) Frankly, I do see why it's well received by some, what with its tatted-up bad boy, secret fighter good boy, and the girl with zero experience except, as usual, for me, things got a bit muchThe story's Drama's Progression: 1. Cow eyes from one or two of them directed at her. 2. Love is in the air, and their inner cavemen start coming out. 3. A [...]

      UNA NOVELA MUY HAAAAAAAAAASTA LUEGO MARI CARMENArriésgate es una novela juvenil contemporánea muy en la línea de las novedades editoriales que multiplican ventas cada mes. Una novela que cuenta el drama amoroso de una chica de dieciocho años que pasa por romances desenfrenados y giros de vida absurdos para su edad. Una novela absurda, con una trama más absurda todavía, mal escrita y organizada y con personajes desdibujados y planísimos.Como veis, Arriésgate no ha sido para nada una buena [...]

      (THIS CONTAINS HUUUGE SPOILERS)Okay, this is hard. I usually don’t review books that I have given 1 star but on this one, I’m willing to make an exception.First, I have nothing against the Author. All the reasons I have given this book a 1 star is really just because of the book. Second, It’s not because of the writing. I honestly think it’s okay-written so yeah It’s all because of the PLOT!I have never – EVER – been so disappointed on a book before! SOMEBODY GIVE ME A TROPHY FOR P [...]

    • Sarah ❤️ Literary Obsessive says:

      If you had asked me for a star rating at around the 50% mark of this book I would have said 5 big shiny stars because up to this point all I had done since picking up the book was ; I loved it, I was gripped, I couldn't put it down, I had to force myself to put my ipad down just to carry out basic daily functions.wow what a book.But then I readjust passed the 50% mark and a certain event happens and I was like; And then I carried on reading and I was like;And then I couldn't help but feel like;A [...]

    • Christine Zolendz says:

      This was the most emotional book I think I have ever read. I hated THAT part. I hate HE was gone. This book stays with you after you're done and you feel all banged up inside. All I've been doing is hugging my husband.

    • Aestas Book Blog says:

      EEEEEPPPPP!!!!!!!!!! HOLY HELL! I just found out some of the stuff I always need to know before I start a book and I'm pretty sure this book is gonnarip my heart to itty-bitty shredsbut I so totally want to read it!! will have to save it for when I can lock myself in a room and cry away

    • Natasha is a Book Junkie says:

      When a book decides to tackle such serious topics such as this one, I feel that a review has to reflect that. It would be irresponsible and quite out of character for me to just skim over the massive elephant in the room and focus only on how un-puttable-down this story might have been or how pleasantly angsty some parts of it were. This is a serious book, this is not a book for the light-hearted and this is not an easy read. The best way I can describe the way the events in this book affected m [...]

    • KarenH says:

      Being a big fan of Beautiful Disaster and Thoughtless/Effortless, I'm always looking for a book that will give me the same adrenaline rush I felt when I read those. Taking Chances was that book for me. It has the incredibly sexy, tatted, buzzed-head hero who makes a living as an underground fighter like BD and the heart-wrenching love triangle between a sweet girl and two equally awesome frat brothers who are both in love with her like T/E. Can Romancelandia get any better for me? Not likely.Har [...]

      ***DNF***Ok, I have been refraining from rating or reviewing DNF books but I am not going to do it anymore. I have seen some friends complaining about people "attacking" them because they do not rate books the same way and this has to stop guys. We are not robot, we don't like the same books and we need to let other people rate/review books the way they want.I didn't mark this one as read because I know most of my friends are absolute fans of this book and I deeply respect them so pls, respect m [...]

      4 Dramatic StarsThis will be a hard review for me because there are a lot of elements in Taking Chances I have personal issues with. So please note, these are personal issues and this is my personal opinion.Here we go…A lot of people recommended Taking Chances to me. However, my girlfriend read it and DNF. I asked her why and she basically told me what happened up until the 50% mark. So I have been putting it off for a very long time. I don’t know why I decided to pick up, maybe because I am [...]

      Just purchased this for my Kindle from UK! People are comparing it to Beautiful Disaster which excites me! Can't wait to get stuck in!!Edit 5/9/12I think I'm going to put this on hold for now, and I'll tell you why. The first 50% of the book was amazing. I only started it today and I haven't been able to put it down even once, until now. I'll be honest when that predictable event with Trish happened, I was amazed that Harper couldn't see through her. Was it just obvious to everyone else but her [...]

      Well, that's me emotionally ruined and enraged at the same time.

    • Liz says:

      More than 5 StarsEmotionally beautiful! The main characters, Harper, Chase, and Brandon will never leave you. It’s not your typical Happy Ending, but that is what is magical about this story. You will experience every single emotion to mankind. Trust me, this journey is worth it. There are Heart-Stopping moments, but I promise it will beat again. Molly McAdams breathes life onto the pages that grip you from the beginning to the very last word on the page. I cannot wait for the next book writte [...]

      ***REVIEW EDIT: 9/17/2012 Contains Spoilers:This will be the first time I have done this, drop a book rating after I posted my original review. My reason for this; I cannot let this story go and not in a good way at all. I keep thinking about the first half of the book compared to the second half. I LOVED the first half, loved the dynamics between Chase and Harper and even Harper and Brandon. I was prepared for the angst of the story and the emotional ride of what would happen with this love tri [...]
