Taking Chances (Donnelley Brothers Book Three)
by Alannah Carbonneau
“Life isn’t about making it to tomorrow…it’s about making today count.”
Hadley Grades life is perfect.
She exists in a perfect world – with a poster board family. She has the big house, with the expensive cars, and lavish furnishings. Her family is healthy and happy.
She has it all.
Until she doesn’t.
After the death of her older brother, Hadley is forced to stand and watch her strong family crumble in the wake of sorrow. But as though facing the death of her brother, and best friend wasn’t enough, Hadley’s father has informed her that he can’t sit back and allow Hadley to meet the same fate her brother met. Unwilling to allow her to remain in the city, he sends Hadley to a Ranch in the deep Alberta Rocky Mountains where he’s certain no temptation will cross her path…and her life will remain intact.
Unable to fight the unstable man Hadley had always known as her rock, she agrees to allow her father to send her away for six months, to experience a different way of life than the Toronto city has to offer.
Hadley arrives at The Donnelley Wild Land Tours Ranch with a bad attitude and a broken heart. The Ranch is the last place she wants to be…until she meets Collin Donnelley in a most humiliating way. Somehow, the man gets under her skin with lady killer grins and cocky innuendos, and in him, she learns to view the world in a different way. He pushes her to experience and to live her life outside the box-like confines of how she thought she should live.
Before long, Hadley is losing her heart to Collin Donnelley, and the biggest player in the Rocky Mountains is losing his heart to a broken girl from the city.
Review by Gia:
Wow, this is Collin's book. After meeting Collin in Counting Stars, I couldn't wait for his story. It was worth the wait because Collin's story is amazing.
Collin is one of the Donnelley brothers. He lives and works on the ranch. He is a big player. I loved the things that comes out of his mouth. Alannah had a tough job in writing a character that readers would find prefect for Collin. Hadley is the character. Hadley is at a rough point in her live. She has just lost her best friend and brother. The beginning of the story is heart wrenching and I was a little teary eyed as we go through Hadley's journey of losing her brother. Hadley is a very likeable character. I loved her right from the beginning. I was absolutely sold that Hadley was perfect for Collin from the way the met. I won't tell you what happens the first time they met but their meeting by far in my favorite of the Donnelley brother so far.
Collin and Hadley's story is great. This one is a definite must read. I can't wait to read Luke's story.
