By the time I got to the crazy twist near the end, I knew I had to acquire it.

Molly McAdams, the self-publishing success-story, has moved to William Morrow! Her novel, TAKING CHANCES, shot right to the top of the Nook and Kindle bestseller lists, and 50k e-books in only one month—and it is now available wherever e-books are sold with a trade paperback edition to come on April 16th of this year. TAKING CHANCES (On-sale 10/16/12 | $2.99 | E- ISBN: 9780062267672) is the break-out success of the New Adult genre; the characters are intriguing, the book has moments of laugh-out-loud wittiness, and the love triangle between Chase, Brandon, and Harper is electric.
The inside scoop:
Editor Tessa Woodward was beside herself when it came time to acquire this book: “TAKING CHANCES is one of those let-the-pots-boil-over, forget-to-pick-up-the-kids, completely-ignore-the-outside-world until it's done stories. By the time I got to the crazy twist near the end, I knew I had to acquire it.”
About the book:
Eighteen year old Harper has grown up under her career Marine of a father’s thumb. Ready to live life her own way and 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. Some she wasn’t expecting yet, and others she never knew she was missing.
She finds herself being torn in two as she quickly falls in love with her boyfriend Brandon, and her roommate’s brother Chase. Covered in tattoos, known for fighting in the Underground and ridiculously muscled...they’re exactly what she was always warned to stay away from, but just what she needs. Despite their dangerous looks and histories, both adore and would do anything for Harper, including stepping back if it means she’s happy.
Her first year away is turning out to be near perfect, but one weekend of giving in to heated passion will change everything.
About the Author:
Molly McAdams grew up in California but now lives in the oh-so-amazing state of Texas with her husband and furry daughter. Her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling and long walks on the beach…which roughly translates to being a homebody with her hubby and dishing out movie quotes. When she’s not at work, she can be found hiding out in her bedroom surrounded by her laptop, cell, Kindle and fighting over the TV remote. She has a weakness for crude-humored movies, fried pickles and loves curling up in a fluffy comforter during a thunderstorm...or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados. That way she can pretend they aren’t really happening.
