OUR REVIEW:

Taking Chances is about a 19 year old girl named Libby whose world turned upside down when her best friend, Mia got killed in a car accident. 
 Mia's boyfriend Mitch, lied to Libby about only having 1 beer and he was driving them home. Well Libby is the only one that made it out alive. 
 Now she is having nightmares about the accident and her parents encourage her to visit her Aunt Claire and Uncle Ryan in Texas. That's when she meets a handsome cowboy named Mason. 

Libby of course blames herself for what happened and now is afraid to take any chances. She already lost her best friend she doesn't want to loose someone else. 
Mason had a troubled past and was afraid it would stear Libby away. He was a true southern gentleman towards Libby. 

Both Libby and Mason have a thing for each other but not sure if they want to see what that thing is as Libby is only there for a little while. They both open up to each other. Then something happens and Libby can't take any chances and heads back home. Will she take the chance and fall in love with Mason? You'll have to read to find out! 

Laura Farr is a new to me author. I was really into this book, and before I knew it, there were no pages left to turn. I felt like the characters in this story can be real and people could relate to them. I did get emotional while reading this story.
