If you forgot why you hated Harper in Taking Chances #1, you'll be reminded in this sequel. Perceiving how unheroic and weak and hypocritical she is from her own POV was painful. But from Chase's POV, it's excruciating. Especially since the story is just a repeat, and you already know how it ends.All the things I liked about the first book are missing in this one. The family is preachy instead of supportive. Brandon, the truest thing to a hero in this story, is nonexistent. And the writing isn't as strong.I read this with the hope Chase's POV would expose why he and Brandon want this unlikeable girl so badly. Chase is asked at one point what is it about her. His response: "Everything about her." That's as close as we get to learning what drives him. Character motivations are lacking. This POV doesn't add any depth or revelations and I was tempted to skim through most of it.
