Synopsis

Her first year away is turning out to be nearly perfect, but one weekend of giving in to heated passion will change everything

Eighteen-year-old Harper has grown up under the thumb of her career marine father. Ready to live life her own way and to experience things she's only ever heard of from the jarheads in her father's unit, she's on her way to college at San Diego State University.

Thanks to her new roommate, Harper is introduced to a world of parties, gorgeous guys, family, and emotions. She finds herself being torn in two as she quickly falls in love with both her new boyfriend, Brandon, and her roommate's brother, Chase. Despite their dangerous looks and histories, both men adore Harper and would do anything for her, including taking a step back if it would mean she'd be happy.

I love all Molly McAdams' love triangles. They have plot twist, heartbreaking scenes, romance, it will make you laugh and it will make you cry of course. This book was as much good as Stealing Harper (the novella) and From Ashes. This book was better than my expectations.

I couldn't finishing reading this book. I hate Harper! I get that sometimes you can fall in love with 2 guys at the same time, but holy crap. Most people don't acted on those feeling, they just love from afar. Such a waste of money. Definitely not reading Stealing Harper. I can't believe the twist, just when I was willing to give Harper another chance, the twist comes. So sad!

I'm pissed.
August 5th, 2014
I can't believe how much I loathe this book. I almost couldn't finish it and if yiu know me at all you'd how rare that is. I can read anything but the characters were so flat minus one exception and the plot was so eye rollingly cliche that it was really hard to enjoy. I didn't even start to like the story until I was about a quarter of the way through when our only somewhat complex character finially takes centre stage but at the half way point things took a turn to the south again. The suposed twist is so sudden, pointless, and heartbreaking that it makes the rest of novel barely readable. The choices that Harper makes after said twist are cringe worthy and extremely frusgrating. I have never hated a main character so much! She is positively wretched in that no human being alive could relate to her. Needless to say I'm actually angry for wasting my time and money on this book.

It has been almost a year since I have read this series. I have read over 300 books in the last 19 month's and this series is still in my top 10 out of all 300 plus books. Harper Brandon Chase triangle is a love story I wish I could rewrite yet it's perfect and I would never touch a thing. I think I cried more painful tears with this series then any personal life experience. I literally felt shattered for weeks after finishing the series. I still to this day can have memories from my surroundings invoke a flashback emotion to reading about Harper Brandon & Chase lives forever changing mine.

Overall a good book
January 30th, 2014
There were a lot of juicy parts in this book, full of drama which I love. The only thing I didn't like was the way the characters talked to each other in a cheesy way sometimes and not really funny when they were trying to be. It got a little slow near the end but there was enough to rope you back in and have to know what happened :)

At first I couldn't put this book down. It was honest and well written and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Then after the incident, I read 2 more chapters and haven't been able to return to this book and finish it. In a way I felt like I was betraying Chase by continuing.

There is one character that is so obviously handled in the worst and most unjust way possible, that it makes it almost impossible to continue your reading. Honestly, this character could not have been treated worse.. Too bad..

I have read ALOT of books.... some would say this type of book is predictable boy meets girl.. they fall in love.... something that probably would never happen in real life happens, then something else that doesn't happen in real life happens...... happy ever after the end..... NOT this time its an emotional roller coaster that I couldn't put down! Read this book and let the tears flow!
