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 t

Staci Hart is a genius! You’d think after reading so many friends to lovers stories I would know the gist and welcome all new stories nonchalantly…
Ahah, not at all! She managed to hook me from page one, getting my somehow hard-to-crack little heart (some like to say I’m cold hearted even.) a thrill!

I loved Maggie and Cooper' story! Finely crafted and intricately mixed friends to lovers story in a forbidden romance trope. It was also the great downfall of a hardcore player and

Chaser is a forbidden, brother's best friend book, but it was slightly different from others I have read recently, in the fact that the hero knew pretty much from the get go that the heroine was his forever girl, and it was her that needed the convincing.

Cooper Moore is a rich Manhattan playboy, he's not particularly arrogant but he knows he's pretty sought after by the ladies, and the fact that he has just hit a New York magazine's most eligible

Listen. You need this book in your life. I tried to come up with a cute and clever way to say that, but it kept coming out as gibberish and emojis, and I realized there's no other way to say it. You NEED this book. But, just so we’re clear, you can't have Cooper because I licked him all over and he's mine forever. You know how sometimes a new book boyfriend comes along and puts all your other book boyfriends to shame? Right. I present to you...Cooper Moore.

4 stars!!

“I’d been hiding almost my whole life, hiding pieces of myself from everyone.”

We have had Lily and West’s story and now it was the turn for Cooper and Maggie. I loved the first book in this series, With a Twist, and this book continues where that left off but now centring around Copper and Maggie, but all our favourite bunch of misfits make an appearance.

There aren’t many words in the English dictionary to tell you how much I enjoyed Chaser. It exceeded, punched, and kicked all my expectations out of the roof. I had this clear image in my head of how this book was going to be and it was looking pretty good. But then Staci Hart pretty much turned it upside down and twisted it into a tight little bow, putting all my old thoughts away. This book surprised me in a way that I di

I’d been eagerly awaiting Staci Hart’s Chaser after absolutely adoring With a Twist (a fantastic friends-to-lovers book – my review here), and I’m glad to say that it didn’t disappoint! It’s possible that I might love Chaser even MORE than With a Twist, all because of one gorgeous man named Cooper. Cooper Moore, and all his yummy, nerdy goodness, has stolen my heart, and I don’t ever want it back. I honestly didn’t think I’d be able to love him more tha

I don't know what I can say about this book to convey how super-cute it was. It's the sort of book that gives you a perma-smile while reading it. To be quite honest it's the kind of book that I wanted to read in one sitting but somehow life got in the way. Trust me, many evil looks were given when I was disturbed from reading this book.

Chaser, is the beautiful, powerful, intense follow up to With A Twist. Full of angst, passion and heartbreaking reality Chaser is pure perfection in a book.

Cooper & Maggie's story is one that will keep you teetering on the edge of your seat gripping your hair while they balance on the will they, won't they see-saw. You will find yourself sucked deep into their immense story feeling every spark of passion, every strand of hope and every beat of thier hearts with love.

There are some times where you go into a book thinking you know one thing. Most times you are 99.9% accurate, but then there are times where your heart can not fathom and your brain can not imagine what that story will do to you. Those times are the times where the author's words will literally kno

* She took a breath. That breath stole mine. I'd never seen anything so beautiful and broken. Not in all my life. *

Just when you think you know Hart's style, just when you think you know what this book is about, just when you think you know ANYTHING - the words on these pages completely obliterate that assumptive knowledge and you're left drowning in an ocean of feels.

To say that I love this book would be literally the biggest understatement of the year. I've tried, for weeks, ever since I fin

Cooper. Mothah-Effing. Moore.
This hero is what every woman wants. He's so perfect and flawed. Hart totally takes him on an emotional journey of not only falling in love but getting his playboy head out of his ass, I mean, behind. He is everything I never saw coming after meeting him in With a Twist. He's sexy. He's smart AF. He's gentle and manly as all get out!

This book starts our from the end of Book One. Maggie is recovering from her wedding debacle and has moved to NYC for a change of change is having a secret fling with Cooper Moore - her brothers best friend. But there are rules and it will only be for a month......or will it?

Cooper is a rich bachelor who is in with the "IT" crowd but really is a nerd at heart. He reveals his true self to Mags one night - his DC / Marvel collection. She is in awe when she sees his full Batman suit.

Weston Williams captivated my heart, but I found my soul mate in Cooper Moore.

I feel like author Staci Hart has truly found her voice, and that even if I didn't enjoy the story or characters, the narrative personality alone would keep me happy.

But as it happens, I totally LOVED the story and characters. Cooper is a rich playboy, but not a douchebag--that's important to note. And Maggie is running away from a traumatic failed wedding. The two of them should have been able to indulge in a no-strings style fling, but it turns out Cooper has more depth than either of them tho

The book was cute and sexy. I had a good time reading it for the most post, but towards the end, the story started to drag a bit. There is too much talking and Maggie came across as whiny and annoying. The hero is sexy fabulous though. Loved me some Cooper!

To be honest, I'm not too sure what I was expecting with Chaser, With A Twist was my first book by Staci Hart, and I loved every second of it, I love the friends to lovers stories, it's pretty much my crack, so when we meet wealthy playboy Cooper Moore he seems to have it all together...looks, money, women throwing themselves at him, no real job to screw with his bachelor lifestyle, things seem to be coasting along for him, I think I almost expected a tried and true formulaic story about a rich ...more

You know that feeling when you finish a book and it happens to be the first in a series and the moment you finish the first book you instantly want to read the second (but you have to wait)... that book becomes everything you want. You want it right this minute, you feel like if you have to wait one more day for it, you won’t even survive. Chaser was that book for me and now that I’ve read it, the suffering starts all over because Last Call isn’t out yet and I NEED IT!!!!!!!

OK back to Chaser. This story follows Maggie and Cooper, who we’ve previously met in book one of the series, With a Twist. Maggie is West’s sister who comes to live in New York after a heartbreaking break up. Cooper Moore (it just sounds better when you use his f

I have mad, MAD love for this series. It's sad and sweet and feels terribly real as these characters struggle through their issues. *gives Staci Hart big, sloppy kisses for all the awesome*

I understood Maggie. Was it hard watching her keep Cooper at arm's length even though it was obvious he adored her? Yes. Yes, it was. But I could understand her reasoning. I could totally see where she was coming from. After the debacle with her fiancé, she doesn't trust herself or her judgement when it comes

Chaser is my first book by Staci Hart, and I LOVED IT! I couldn't turn the pages quickly enough, so I finished it in one sitting.

Maggie Williams caught her fiance' doing her maid of honor an hour before her wedding ceremony. If that wasn't bad enough, she also finds out that he's been cheating on her with numerous women around town. Humiliated, she decides to relocate to New York near her brother.

Chaser comes to us as book 2 of the Bad Habits series. It can be read as a standalone but I definitely recommend With A Twist first. Staci Hart knows how to write romantic comedy.

Maggie is new to New York City. On the heels of being cheated on on her wedding day, she decides to move to be close to her brother and his best friends and get a fresh start with her life. She's only 22 and has nothing to lose.

Great writing. Emotional story.
I loved West & Lily's story and I was very excited for this. This is about Cooper and Maggie. We met them in With A Twist and now it's time to see their story.
Cooper is a womaniser and a player. He is not into dating. He doesn't do serious relationships...until Maggie, his best friend's sister. They click. The attraction is strong. They keep it physical.

Damn you goodreads and your no half stars. 4.5/5 stars. Good gravy can Staci write a book! This one has all the feels (happy, sad, angry, ALL OF THEM) and it totally broke my heart. I am seriously in LOVE with Cooper (sorry mags) I need to gather my thoughts to give you a complete full review but please don't wait for me just read it. You will not be disappointed, Staci NEVER disappoints.

I will start off by saying I loved the first book in this series, With a Twist. I not only fell in love with the main characters in that story, but with the entire group of friends. This includes Chaser's main characters, Cooper and Maggie. I could feel the tension between the two during book one and was intrigued by their story.

Maggie is the younger sister of West, and Cooper is his best friend. The brother's best friend and sister romances make up some of my favorite reads, so I couldn't wait
