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 to protect her, even if it meant he had to stay away.
Maggie never expected to find her fiancé banging her maid of honor an hour before she was set to walk down the aisle, but life’s funny that way. The only option to save her sanity is to get the hell out of Jackson and move to New York where her brother lives. The only downside: Cooper is there too. And she just doesn’t know if she can stay away from him — the filthy rich, dead sexy playboy who’s allergic to commitment.
The second Maggie sees him again, she realizes he’ll be impossible to resist. Luckily, commitment is the last thing on her mind, and Cooper is the perfect escape. As long as she can keep her heart in check, everything will be just fine. Because she can never have feelings for him. Or at least that’s what she’ll keep telling herself.
Chaser is a standalone romantic comedy and book 2 of the Bad Habits series.
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 pasts’ thoughts away. This book surprised me in a way that I didn’t see it coming.
Cooper and Maggie welcome you with a BANG! from the start. And I love how Staci Hart starts her books with OMFG scenes. They keep surprising you all throughout the book and then it comes to a point where you don’t know how it’s going to end. CHASER is funny and it’s filled with friendships that can’t be replaced. It has heart and it has power in its words. It’s clear how much the characters are loved by their author and I will be forever grateful and full with joy to keep reading Staci Hart’s books for the rest of my life.
Cooper Moore was someone that sneaked up on me. You think Cooper is a way but you find out he has doubts in his head and a pretty big heart to match. When he loves, he loves completely. I just found myself falling for him and The Smile. I adored the dynamics about their relationship since the start and that love continued to grow with each passing chapter. *Special mention to those amazing chapter’s titles. Staci always makes me smile but at the same time, breaks me.*
Maggie Williams had such a great voice. I could imagine her completely how she would be if she were standing right next to me. Her cute little expressions and the way she smiled at Cooper, it was all really well written and developed that I found myself getting lost in the story for some times and then I was ten chapters later from where I started. Staci’s books do that to you. They’re so entertaining and FUN that you get suck into the story with the emotions dancing around you.
There wasn’t just romantic love but it also had friendships. It was so great to see the Habits gang again. Their usual spot to meet and their enjoyable conversations. It’s obvious they really care about each other with no bad intentions. And I like that so much. Give me all the healthy and cute friendships in the world and I’m your girl.
I’d like to tell you in detail all the scenes that I enjoyed but that’s for you to find out. CHASER is just what you need if you like best friend’s little sister trope, rich nice guy, laugh-your-butt-off dialogues and epic painful journeys that are worth it.
