Gwen Stevens had a privileged life until her father spoke three little words that turned her world upside down. “You’re cut off.”

Broke and desperate, Gwen is forced to accept a waitressing job, but this glimmer of hope has a price. As if being a cocktail waitress isn’t bad enough, she has to do it in a dive bar called The Den, and her bad luck doesn’t stop there. She also

When Gwen finds herself cut off from her oh-so-privileged lifestyle she is furious. How dare her father do this to her?! Needing to pay her bills until she can cajole herself back into her father's good graces, Grace accepts a job offer from a stranger. A waitressing job. At a dive bar. So beneath her.

Liam is the new owner of The Den and when Gwen walks in to his bar he knows she's nothing but trouble. Unfortunately, his sister offered Gwen a job without his knowledge and he's in desperate need

Chance at Redemption is a fun opposites attract/ boss & employee romance. The 3rd in the Madison Square series catches us up with Liam Sinclair, brother and bar co-owner to Madison of Choosing Happy. It's Madison's decision to hire Gwendolyn, a newly cut-off poor little rich girl, that shakes up Liam's world.

Gwen is not the most likable or empathetic character, not at first. Harris does a great job painting her as a shallow and self absorbed girl who immediately gets dubbed as "princess" by Lia

Lemme just let y’all know this is the third book in the series, I was slightly confused through a little bit of it because I think Gwen appears in the first book, which I didn’t read. But, let’s pretend I didn’t miss anything.

I really enjoyed this book. It was a quick, relatively light-hearted new adult book with minimal drama.

At first I was a little bit wary. I think I was about two pages in and took down this note- “Gwen really needs this because she is such an entitled brat”. I really didn’t
I loved this instalment to the series. I would strongly recommend you read the first two books as it will enhance the storyline for Chance at redemption. However, it is possible to read this as a standalone. All 3 books are available on Kindle Unlimited. Therefore, you have nothing to lose. This one was my favourite of the 3. I loved Gwen's character.

Gwen is a typical rich spoil brat. She may be an adult, but she hasn't grown up and knows nothing of responsibility until now. Her dad has had enou

Gwen has been cut off from her Daddy, told she has a total of $5000 left and she needs to become an adult. When all of her “friend” and hook-up fail to give her a job, she is desperate. Desperate enough to take a job as a waitress at a complete dive of a bar. When Liam’s waitress got injured he needed a replacement quick, but he had no idea that his big-hearted sister would hire a spoiled, high maintenance girl with no experience. Liam and Gwen instantly bat heads, and they both know Gwen does n

I think I should note that I have not read the first two books in the Madison Square Series, so I think my view on Gwen is different than people who read the first two and saw her as a "villain". We learn a diluted version about the kinds of things Gwen did to the other people in the series in the past, but since I wasn't emotionally invested in the first two couples I think I saw Gwen with a less biased eye. I've read reviews stating that they would have liked the book if it would have been a ...more

I'm a big fan of this series and I just love how they get a better as they go.

First, let me say that at the beginning I had a hard time liking Gwen, she's spoiled, manipulative, and self absorbed. So just by that it will appeared that I didn't like the girl, huh? But things change, because life is about to teach Gwen how things can change in the blink of an eye. Through unexpected circumstances, she finds herself working at a dive bar as a cocktail waitress.

I haven't read the previous books in the series but it didn’t impede on my enjoyment in reading Chance at Redemption.

Liam owns a dive bar in partnership with his sister, giving up his life of luxury. His family had his life mapped out for him but he wanted to find his own way and do what he enjoys instead of feeling obligated.

Gwen is very much a daddy's girl and is spoilt rotten. That is until her father decides that she ought to act like an adult and be more responsible. She hopes that it's t

Chance at Redemption is the 3rd book in the Series and I have to say I enjoyed Gwen and Liam's a little bit more than the others. The personal growth that Gwen experienced throughout the book was life changing for her and really helped to connect with her character, especially after hating her so much in the first book.

Gwen is a rich girl who takes what she wants in life no matter who it hurts. When her father decides to cut her off from everything and she is forced to get a job that will actual

I have to say I was not looking forward to reading this book, but in the same feeling I had to see what happened next... If you have read the other books in the series you would know why I was a little cautious... I hated Gwen.. still not sure she deserved the ending she has received.. yes I said it lol... but that doesn't take away from the writing skills of this author. I would give this book a 3.5 stars and recommend to others to tread lightly and keep and open mind while reading if you hated ...more

A spoiled princess pays her dues in a bar and it turns out to be the best thing that’s ever happened to her. Being the third book in a series, this is a companion novel to the first two books. The story is told in alternating first person perspectives of Liam and Gwen and utilises the Hate to Love trope well.

It was hard to like Gwen at the beginning given her snotty and pretentious attitude. Getting a job waitressing at a bar actually helped her drop the attitude and develop some humility. It wa

I wasn't sure what I was expecting when I started to read this book. In all honesty, I hated Gwen and wasn't really interested in reading her story, but I finally forced myself to open it up on my kindle and started to read...and I'm so glad I did.

Many of you will remember that Gwen was one of the least likable people in the series, and you were more likely to burn her at the stake than to admit that you liked her. The question is, will she redeem herself and get a happy ending, or will she con

Poor Gwen. No one likes her. Seriously. I went through a ton of reviews and almost no one had a nice thing to say about her. I, on the other hand, kind of liked her. Was she my favorite character of the series? No, but I liked her enough.

Liam and Gwen get their story and it is an opposites attract type of book. Liam has a huge heart and is just generally a good guy. Gwen, well, she is a bit nasty. She was almost never nice and always had something nasty to say, but I knew underneath was

I was a little unsure about reading this book because it is the third book in the Madison Square Book Series and I have not read the first two books. I feel that this book is a great stand alone and feel that you really do not have to read the other two books before this book to understand what is going on.

I haven't read the previous books in the series but I did enjoy this book. There is the rich girl who has to take a job because she is now penniless. And she gets this job in Liam's bar. The naturally start off on the wrong foot, have disagreements and Liam throughly enjoys rubbing her the wrong way. The sexual tension between them is right out in front and soon turns into steamy sex before the emotions come into play.

The storyline is well written and an enjoyable quick read. The characters are
May 27, 2017 rated it liked it
At the start of the story, Gwen is a spoilt, self centred and (to my mind at least) thoroughly unlikeable character. And honestly? I didn't really like her much better by the tale's conclusion. It is, perhaps, part of the depth of the character building by the author that I had such a strong reaction to her female lead.

That said, this story wasn't a bad one. It is obvious that this is part of a series, but my enjoyment of the book wasn't affected by the fact that I hadn't read the earlier books.

Wow! I think this is my favourite book of the series! Gwen is an out and out Princess, living on Daddy's credit card, making life hell for all those around her.....until Daddy cuts her off with a bit of tough love.
Down on her luck she manages to get a job in Liam's bar The Den, and he is not standing for any of her 'life owes me everything' attitude. They forge an unlikely friendship but there seems to be a lot standing in their way, least of all her 'I'm better than you' attitude.

WOW!!!! just wow, Chane of redemption is the best out of this 3 book series. I loved Gwen and let me tell you loving Gwen Stevens was tough. In Book 1 she wasn't a very nice person at all. I wont say what happens but trust me when I say your going to love Gwen.
And Liam Sinclair stole my heart. He may have been brought up with money and all the fanfare that came with it. But Liam choose his own way. He truly is a better man for it.

Chance at Redemption is a great example of an opposites attract story, paired with a really dramatic second chance (at life, not love) plot--because the Gwen who starts this book is worlds away from the Gwen who finishes it. And thank goodness, because for the first 20% or so of the book to say I was not a fan of hers would have been a massive understatement! Ms. Harris did a fantastic job, though, of giving her the opportunity to grow up...and helping her to find love along the way.

This is a solid addition to the Ms. Harris series and focuses on Liam and Gwen, characters we've met in previous books as secondary characters.
Liam's reputation is as a good guy, Gwen's not so much and it was neat to see her evolution from spoiled to a character I could root for and like.
As we move the story, we see the trust issues that both Liam and Gwen deal with and the problems those can cause.
This is well written and entertaining and does stand alone, but I would encourage rea

Okay, this book is the story of one daddy's girl who gets everything she wants from daddy's money but then daddy cuts her off and now she has to make it on her own. Of course, she falls for the first person she meets after this ordeal.
