Chaser (Bad Habits #2) by Staci Hart
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.
Chaser was such a fun read. I loved Maggie and Cooper and didn't want their story to end!
Maggie was all set to get married, but then she found her husband to be banging her maid of honor right before the wedding. She didn't want this, but she does what she does best when she finds out - she runs. She runs to her brother in New York to stay with him for a while. The only problem? Cooper is there as well. Cooper who she is drawn to, but nothing can ever happen with because he is a ladies man. Good thing she is in no shape for a relationship and only wants casual right? Now if she can keep her heart in check everything will work out fine.
Cooper was always a ladies man and never thought of Maggie as anything other than his best friend's sister. Until that day. Until he sees how strong and resilient she is. Then he wants to protect her and keep her from being heartbroken like that again. I mean people can change right? For the right person? He can stop his playboy ways and settle down right?
These two were a lot of fun. Maggie and Cooper try to keep things casual, but it is hard. They like each other, really like each other, so it was fun watching them try and figure it out. And when things get rocky Maggie has to figure out if she will do what she always does, run, or if Cooper is worth staying and fighting for. She might be starting to realize - the only problem with running is that your issues are still there when you stop.
This was a really sweet, fun read. I loved Cooper and Maggie!
