Title: Chaser (Bad Habits #2)
Author: Staci Hart
Genre: Psychological Thriller
Release Date: October 15th 2015
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.
I am fangirling so hard and trying my best not to type an exclamation point after every word I type.
Breathe, Farzy, breathe.
What I liked about the book
- Cooper’s sexiness— Tall, dark and handsome, what’s not to like? And just when I thought I couldn’t love Cooper more, I found out he’s a total nerd and he loves Batman! Hey, Batman was my childhood hero (still is) and I have a soft spot for people who loves him. Cooper Moore, I love you.
- Maggie’s past—Maggie is such a great person and she didn’t deserve the shit she went through. But if it wasn’t for that horrible, horrible event in her life she wouldn’t have met Cooper. I haven’t experienced what Maggie went through, but I could feel her sorrow, fear, happiness, joy, doubt bleeding through the pages. And I might have cried ten buckets of tears. That’s how good a writer Hart is.
- The effortlessly funny dialogs and one-liners— I’ve always admired Hart’s ability to write witty dialogs. The conversations among the characters feel natural to me. They’re the kind of conversations you’d have with your closest friends. I also like the inside jokes and the witty banters. The dialogs make the characters feel alive on the pages.
- Hart’s ability to write a heartfelt, tear-inducing, heart-ripping book— This isn’t the first Staci Hart book that left me emotionally shell-shocked (from being so awesome) and it’s not going to be the last.
- Mr. Curmudgeon a.k.a. West— Remember West, full-on beard, man bun, hot bod? Yeah? Well, he’s a very overprotective (but loving) brother and I love him for that. With Cooper’s track record, it was only understandable why he was so overprotective of Maggie.
What I didn’t like about the book
