Synopsis (Goodreads):
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 fiancĂ© 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.
Thoughts on Chaser: I have mad, MAD love for this series. It's sad and sweet and feels terribly real as these characters struggle through their issues. *gives Staci Hart big, sloppy kisses for all the awesome*

I understood Maggie. Was it hard watching her keep Cooper at arm's length even though it was obvious he adored her? Yes. Yes, it was. But I could understand her reasoning. I could totally see where she was coming from. After the debacle with her fiancĂ©, she doesn't trust herself or her judgement when it comes to men. So she throws herself into the idea of a physical relationship with a very real deadline and refuses to allow herself to be hurt by pushing aside all the signs she's falling for Coop.

And Cooper. Oh, Coop. For a playboy with no history of commitment, he sold me on his devotion mighty quickly. I loved that Maggie's presence in his life gave him purpose. Honestly, there was a lot about Cooper to love. Sexy, filthy rich, and willing to make big changes in his life in order to have Maggie beside him. <3 <3 <3 *draws sparkly hearts around Coop*

We got face time with West and Lily (for the record, I still love West's man bun) and have some great set-up for Rose and Tricky's story. I love, love, love the relationship between the friends (even when it's a little rocky) and want to spend oodles of time in this world. Between now and the next book, I guess I'll have to tide myself over with a reread or two.

I'm not at all against this idea. =D
