Book Review: ONE MORE CHANCE by Abbi Glines - Giveaway

Genre: New Adult
Publication Date: September 2, 2014

SYNOPSIS

Grant Carter did everything in his power to convince Harlow Manning that he was a good guy. More than a smooth-talker and someone she could trust. He had to overcome his reputation as a playboy, and his history with Harlow's half-sister, Nan, a woman with a reputation of her own.

Harlow had taken the chance, falling hard and fast for the guy who thrilled her with his all-consuming desire. After a lifetime of avoiding bad boys like Grant, she had opened herself to the possibilities of love...

But a life-changing secret has torn them apart, and now Grant and Harlow must decide if they have enough fight to make it work - or if the pain of betrayal has permanently destroyed their future.



REVIEW

4.5 A CHANCE SO WORTH TAKING STARS!

After reading Take a Chance, after falling in love with Grant, and after being left wanting more of that sexy story I was so excited to finally read One More Chance. Well, I'm happy to say now that I really enjoyed this book! This sequel was touching and heartfelt and it showed a new captivating side of these characters that I haven't seen before and I loved it.
"Was it possible to hate yourself? Because I was pretty damn sure I did."
In Take a Chance Grant was completely irresistible; with his sex appeal and sweet talk he was every girl's dream. But as good as he was he was also reckless and impulsive which caused him to make some serious mistakes. Now regretting what's been done Grant is trying to make amends by fighting for Harlow and their love as hard as he can and in doing so he goes through a very poignant journey.
"Trying not to love hear was impossible-it shattered me and brought me to my knees."
I loved seeing this side of Grant: emotional, heartbroken, and hopeless. This is a man madly in love and it broke my heart to see him suffer but it also made me feel much closer to him as I connected with all his emotions. This story really put all his strengths and fears to the test making him relay only on his adoration for Harlow and to really believe that love is worth the chance.
"I didn't deserve her but I wanted her more than I wanted to breathe."
As always Grant was sweet with words and intense with passion in this book too and I loved that that didn't change in him regardless of the turmoil in the story. Harlow on the other hand did change in my opinion. Before she was more naive, timid, and somehow content with life as it was but now she's stubborn, determined, and a total fighter when it came to defend the ones she loves.
"To be loved by him is to live. And I lived because he loved me."
This new Harlow was really someone to regard with admiration. Her devotion, faith, and courage towards Grant and the future were beyond inspiring. Oh my, her sweet letters were so lovely and beautiful that they melt my heart. It really felt like this girl's conviction was stronger than anything and that feeling was carried throughout the story so I cheered for her all the way to the end for her to get her happily ever after. Because for Harlow it was never a question, giving herself completely to love was always worth the chance.
"Loving someone is a chance we all take, but life without love means nothing."
I really enjoyed One More Chance, it was a beautiful sequel filled with heartfelt emotions about things so real in life. Things we can all relate to because we all want to love and protect those dear to us no matter the consequences. I definitely fell more in love with Grant and Harlow as their fears and fierce love for each other were so touching to the heart. I only wish the book would have been a little longer to experience all those emotions more fully. But regardless, I was very happy with the way this story turned out, it was the the perfect ending that the sexy Grant Carter and the very sweet Harlow Manning totally deserved.♥
