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 fiancé 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.
Chaser is a standalone romantic comedy and book 2 of the Bad Habits series.

Chaser was just as cute and sweet as I expected it to be! While I loved With A Twist, I do believe I love Chaser even more. Right from the start we are thrown into Maggie and Cooper's fling and I couldn't get enough of this couple. As much as Maggie wants to follow her self-imposed rules, Cooper makes it hard for her. Even I could feel the feelings she was trying to ignore. These two have chemistry that oozes from the pages.
Maggie is a sweetheart and I love her dearly. After finding her fiance sleeping with her maid of honor on her wedding day she's moved to New York to be near her brother,West, and to start over. She's just looking for some fun and thinks Cooper is the way to go. He's the quintessential rich cocky playboy, but there's another side of him that he doesn't let people see. Except Maggie. With her, he's someone different, someone incredibly sweet and caring and a little nerdy. Basically, Cooper's everything I can't resist and I ended up falling head over heels in love! He also has a smooth way of talking around those rules Maggie set up for them, so they could walk away without getting hurt and without her brother finding out she's sleeping with his best friend. I was on pins and needles waiting for shit to hit the fan if/when West found out. But just when things are looking like there could be a future for these two, it is Maggie's past that rears up and she realizes it's something she has to deal with before there's ever a chance of moving forward with Cooper, if she even wants to.
There hasn't been a single Hart book that the narrative along with the witty dialogue hasn't kept me completely enthralled. Staci Hart kills at both. It's addicting and sucks you into a scene to the point you feel like you're sitting there with the characters. When her characters talk, it feels so real, whether it's a serious or funny moment the conversation always flows flawlessly. Chaser, of course, was no different and I was hanging on to every word!
I love these Bad Habit novels, they're so fun and sexy, immensely entertaining, and refreshingly romantic. I've grown to love each and every character; now bring on Tricky and Rose's book!
