Blog Tour and Review: One More Chance, by Abbi Glines

#1 New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines continues the unforgettable story of Grant Carter, the irrestible playboy who first captured readers’ hearts in Fallen Too Far.

The second installment in a never before published New Adult duet by #1 New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines, ONE MORE CHANCE  is the follow up to the smash hit TAKE A CHANCE, and concludes the story of Grant Carter, a fan favorite character, and Harlow.

She was it. His one. His only. Then he made the mistake of letting her go.

After fighting his way into Harlow Manning’s heart—and revealing a side of himself no one had ever seen before—Grant Carter destroyed his own heart by giving in to his greatest fears and doubts. Months later, he’s stuck in a miserable routine. Work relentlessly. Beg his best friend Rush for news about Harlow. Avoid all other friends. Leave nightly voicemails for Harlow, pleading with her to come back to Rosemary Beach. Fall asleep alone. Repeat.

Miles away, on her brother’s Texas ranch, Harlow can’t bring herself to listen to Grant’s voicemails. Though she wants to be with him, and knows he regrets letting her go, she doesn’t know if she can trust him. When he discovered the truth behind her sheltered upbringing, it shattered their relationship, but the secret she carries now has far greater consequences. Can she risk giving Grant one more chance, or will the gamble ultimately destroy her?

With her signature passionate characters and sizzling connections, Abbi Glines debuts another steamy, page-turning novel that will leave readers desperate for more.

4.5 out of 5 stars

While I was really excited to get my hands on Grant's second book I was somewhat apprehensive as to what to expect.  I have always loved Grant's character but if I am being perfectly honest at the end of Take a Chance he left me disappointed.  Now after reading One More Chance I have to wonder why I ever doubted him!  In the pages of One More Chance Abbi Glines holds nothing back as she takes Grant and Harlow's story to the next level, giving them so much more than a simple HEA.

I am a huge Abbi Glines fan, having read most all her books, and never before have one of her stories taken me on such an emotional journey.  Abbi Glines poured her very heart and soul into every single page of this book.  She provided Grant with the perfect opportunity to show growth in his character.  To prove his love for Harlow was unyielding.  Their story is pure, full of genuine love and I completely enjoyed this journey with the two of them, and now I understand why Abbi Glines left me wavering in my feelings of him at the end of Take a Chance.

Grant learned his lesson, learned from him mistakes.  Losing Harlow completely wrecked havoc in his life.  He is miserable, but he is persistent.  His nightly phone calls to her voicemail provided the perfect opportunity to showcase his devotion to her as well has allowing me as a reader to really see how deep his love for her ran.  Grant made me proud, especially watching him handle new and terrifying circumstances with grace, confidence and love.  This new Grant definitely deserves a love as great as the one Harlow has to offer.

I don't really want to go into too many details of this story because I'm afraid if I do it will take away from your experience with One More Chance.  Just know some surprises are headed your way and Abbi Glines is going to seriously make you second guess yourself.  I cannot honestly believe I am about to say this, but she's even convinced me Nan possess some redeeming qualities and quite possibly isn't as horrible as we all once thought.  And if I'm going to continue with the honesty, I would really like to see more of this new side of Nan.  Will this happen?  Who knows!  Just read the book, and if you were like me and didn't love Grant in Take a Chance, fear not.  You're going to love him and you're going to love watching Grant and Harlow fight for one another, fight for the HEA they both truly deserve.  Well done Abbi Glines!  One More Chance took me by surprise and I don't think you could have given them any better of a story than the one you wrote.  It was perfect!
