Review: One More Chance by Abbi Glines

Publisher: Atria Books
Publication Date: September 2, 2014
Genre: New Adult
Source: Purchase via Amazon

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.


While Take A Chance didn't end on a cliff hanger, it definitely left me wanting more. Grant and Harlow are at a turning point in their relationship and they both must decide what they want. Do they fight for each other or do they let go?

Grant is obviously regretful for the choices he made and I liked the way each chapter in his POV opened with a heartfelt voice mail to Harlow. He is clearly in pain and heartbroken. He knows he pushed her away and he is ashamed of the way he reacted to her confession. Harlow loves Grant but she understands his fears and anxieties and she has some of her own.

Grant and Harlow had a lot of obstacles to overcome and I liked the support that Grant showed her. He really steps up and matures a lot. I think that is definitely Harlow's influence and I like it. I was glad to see the way he stood up to her father and Nan. He really proved his love to Harlow and I really felt how serious he was about making things work.

Overall, I really enjoyed the conclusion to Grant and Harlow's story. I love the intermingled storylines with characters of the past and those who will be getting their own book soon (Jacy and Tripp). I also liked that Nan wasn't the worst person on the planet in this book and while she is still self-centered and nasty, she proved that their may be a real heart in her after all, even if it is tiny.
