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-co

DJ Absolutely! And the fact that they elude to him being sort of a male version of Nan, I can only imagine the sparks that will cause!

So you didn’t love Grant’s first book? Join the club. After reading One More Chance, I can officially say that Abbi Glines has redeemed Grant’s first book for me. I have been a Grant fan since the first Rush book. He was one of my favorites in the Rosemary Beach series. But after reading his first book, I was over him. He did some things that really made me not like him. I had high hopes that Abbi could turn it around and make him my Grant again. And she did. I really e

“All my life, I’ve dreamed of having someone love me like you do.”

Loving every single book an author has ever written is daunting at times because you are always dreading that no story could ever match the quality of the last one. But book after book, Ms Glines keeps delivering such distinctive love stories, her trademark style recognisable from a mile, but each time injecting something new, something unexpected, something utterly addictive into these stories to keep us glued to

This is Forever Too Far's excerpt but oh boy!! Had to share it here too.

"Grant and Nan have had a thing for a while now. Nan finally screwed things up for the last time and its over. Rush didn't know about it"

My mouth dropped open as Dean's words sank in. Grant and Nan? Really?

This is the Grant I know and love.

One More Chance begins with Harlow and Grant still separated. It has been weeks since Harlow ran away, and Grant is still calling her daily and leaving voicemails.

I was immediately concerned about where things were going, I hate when I have to wait forever for my couple to finally get together. That wasn’t the case here, in my opinion they were separated for a justifiable amount of time.

Despite Harlow wanting to be with Grant, she knows that i

In Take A Chance, we got to learn a lot more about Grant and Harlow but not everything was good. And it ended with Harlow taking off and leaving Grant and Grant had been kind of a jerk. Now we get to find out if Grant can redeem himself and if Harlow will let him.

One of the things I love about this series is getting the dual POV's, otherwise, it just wouldn't work. We need to know what's happening with both Grant and Harlow and of course, there's a big secret keeping them apart.

Well that was a nice angsty break from reality!

In One More Chance , Harlow gives Grant was he's been wishing for, the chance to get her back and prove he can be a man and keep her. There is only one giant problem... Harlow's pregnant and if she has the baby, she won't survive it due to a heart condition. Cue drama.

After being a complete douche in 'Take A Chance', Grant redeems himself in 'One More Chance'. Thank goodness for that! This time around, Grant has replaced his selfishness and careless disregard for Harlow's feelings, with heartfelt gestures and sweetness. Harlow was sweet to begin with and she continued to be the endearing girl she always has been. However, there must be something in the air because even Nan showed a sensitive side...Yes, Nan.

If you haven’t read the previous books, there might be small spoilers.

In the end of the last book Harlow runs away, after Grant finding out her secret and having a bad reaction. Yeah, Grant kind of disappointed us but now that Harlow’s gone, he saw what a douchebag he was and just wants her back. He does everything in her power to have her back and forgive him. Harlow wants him too, but she is scared and she will not go to him until she’s sure they can work out.

I felt Grant was able to redeem himself. Frankly, my problem with this book is not with him but with Harlow. She's one of the most boring, one-dimensional heroines ever. She's like Delia 2.0.

And I still don't like Nan. She better not get a book.

This book picks back up after Grant has learned Harlow's secret & he didn't react so well, and felt betrayed by her. His reaction to Harlow's news sends her running. She leaves and hides out with her brother Mase at his secluded log cabin.

This leaves Grant devastated, and alone in Rosemary. He has no clue where Harlow ran off to, and just wants to talk to her so he can apologize & tell her how much he loves her.

In terms of comparing this with the first book then I'll say I liked this one better. Did I love it? No. But I kinda saw it coming. Truth is I never got over the fact Grant sleeping with Nan AFTER sleeping with Harlow. (Cheating is a hard-limit for me.)
Anyway, I sort of expected Harlow to give Grant a harder time before she gave in to him again. (He did say awful things to her before she left him.) Of course, soft-spoken timid Harlow doesn't protest much, in fact, she couldn't get to his arms

"My heart had always been weak, but loving Grant made it strong."

4 Stars!

Harlow is one lucky woman!

I swooned all over this book! I think One More Chance is better than Take a Chance because the development of the main characters here was greatly emphasized. Not to mention the emotionally-driven storyline which was loaded with tear-jerking drama.

So many things happened in this book and Grant and Harlow's relationship was tested big time! I became so emotional when Grant begged Harlow

My rambling is all about Nan. Yes, that Nan...

Is it just me, Or am I really feeling sorry for Nan?

Here's a thing:

I can't remember a time when I didn't hate her when she was present in a page.
She's such a vindictive bitch to my eyes. The villain. Always.
And yet, with this book, Some unknown thing tugged at my heart.

She didn't have too many scenes with this book, but those small parts made a huge impact especially at the end.

I think this will be about the love triangle of Grant, Nan and Harlow though it will be more on Grant and Harlow's story. Harlow was introduced in Forever Too Far (the half sister of Nan with his father, Kiro) and there were Grant's and Harlow's point of views. In Forever Too Far, in the wedding of Blaire and Rush, in the point of views of Grant and Harlow, their strong connection with each other can be seen (similar with Blaire & Rush also with Della and Woods) also in the end of the last book ...more

Grant didn’t let Harlow walk away. He pushed her away with all his might. Discovering that she could leave him was too much for him to take. But now that she’s gone, he is broken and realizes that she is the only thing that can keep him together. Even if it means his time with her could be limited, he’d take a second of a life with her over nothing.

Harlow understands why Grant did what he did. She knew he’d react that way, it’s why she hid it from him. She loves him and is just waiting until

Sad to say that I think I have outgrown AG’s writings. Her style is too amateurish for my taste (especially the dialogue) and some of the characters were written in a way that came off too melodramatic, childish and inconceivable (i.e. Nan’s character). I should have stopped this series right after Della and Wood’s story. But, I forged ahead hoping the storyline would keep my interest. No such luck. Did not care for the story or the author’s style, but happy the characters were led to an ending ...more
