Review - Stealing Harper by Molly McAdams

Chase Grayson has never been interested in having a relationship that lasts longer than it takes for him and his date to get dressed again. But then he stumbles into a gray-eyed girl whose innocence pours off her, and everything changes. From the minute Harper opens her mouth to let him know just how much he disgusts her, he's hooked.

But a princess deserves a Prince Charming who can make her dreams come true. Not a guy who can turn her life into a nightmare.

All good intentions go out the window when Harper starts to fall for the guy Chase has come to view as a brother. He wanted to protect her by keeper her away, but he can't stand to see her with anyone else, and he'll do anything to make her his. But when it comes down to Harper choosing between the two, will Chase have the strength to step back from the girl who has become his whole world if it means she's happy?

Lines will be crossed. Friendships will be put to the test. And hearts will be shattered.

OK, I've discovered that the companion books told from the male love interest's POV are just not my thing.  It wasn't that this book was bad in any way.  I actually really enjoyed it.  But there is just SOMETHING missing for me.  I felt that was about Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire and I feel that way about this one too.  Maybe it's because I like the façade of a good asshole, bad-ass guy and when I read the story from their POV, they become kind of soft to me?
Overall, a pretty decent read.  It was nice too see the world as Chase viewed it instead of the stupid wench by the name of Harper, even if it did make him seem less of a bad-ass.  If you enjoyed Taking Chances, I would recommend you pick this up.  If not, don't.  It won't bring you any joy, because Harper's still in it.
3.5 out 5 stars!
