STEALING HARPER Blog Tour: Interview, Exclusive Excerpt & Giveaway

Hello & welcome to today's blog tour stop for Molly McAdams Stealing Harper! YOU GUYS ARE AMAZING! Want to know why? Because of you, STEALING HARPER IS OUT TODAY!!! Let's right! It's out a full 2 weeks ahead of it's original release date because you guys met the pre-order goal! CONGRATULATIONS on that!! 

Before I share my interview with Molly, and give you a little teaser from the book, I'd love to tell you a little bit about the book itself.

Chase Grayson has never been interested in having a relationship that lasts longer than it takes for him and his date to get dressed again. But then he stumbles into a gray-eyed girl whose innocence pours off her, and everything changes. From the minute Harper opens her mouth to let him know just how much he disgusts her, he's hooked.

But a princess deserves a Prince Charming who can make her dreams come true. Not a guy who can turn her life into a nightmare.

All good intentions go out the window when Harper starts to fall for the guy Chase has come to view as a brother. He wanted to protect her by keeping her away, but he can’t stand to see her with anyone else, and he’ll do anything to make her his. But when it comes down to Harper choosing between the two, will Chase have the strength to step back from the girl who has become his whole world if it means she’ll be happy?

Lines will be crossed. Friendships will be put to the test. And hearts will be shattered

Hi Molly! Welcome to Mundie Moms today. Can you please tell us a little bit about Stealing Harper? 
STEALING HARPER is Chase's POV of TAKING CHANCES. A lot of alternate POVs are little just the exact story, told in someone else's perspective (hence, the name…duh, Molly…okay shutting up now) But I feel like with Chase, he was always so secretive and gone so often, that we really get an entirely new story in STEALING HARPER. It's still full of heartache, but oh my word is it worth the ride!

What do you think is one of Harper's greatest strengths?
She can handle her own, she is more than capable of taking care of herself in any situation. She may make some stupid decisions, but for the most part, she doesn't play the victim when bad situations come up.

You have a group of characters who are all flawed, and easy to relate to. Which of your characters has surprised you the most in terms of how much they've changed/grown over the course of the story?
Chase. For sure, I was blown away when I started STEALING HARPER. He was like a whole new person to me, I was constantly telling my husband "I didn't know he felt that way/thought that!" 

What do you like about both of the romantic interests in this story?
For both of them equally, I love their love for Harper…no matter what. For Chase, I loved his attitude with Harper. Like he was going to push her buttons and make her uncomfortable…and he was going to enjoy it. For Brandon, I love his sweet personality. I love how he cares for every part of Harper regardless of the situation, and how he honored Chase.

Where do you draw your inspiration from for your characters? 
The main three actually all came from my original dream that started TAKING CHANCES. I already had a very vivid idea of what they were all like, but I do put a lot of me, my family, and my friends in all my characters.

What's the best piece of writing advice you'd give to younger, aspiring authors? 
Write what you WANT to write. Don't write what everyone else is writing, or what you think you should write for people. If you're in love with your story, others will love your story!

I slammed the door with more force than necessary and stalked out to the living room, “What the hell is wrong with all of you?!”
“She putting up much of a fight, Chase?” Drew sneered and put more bottles of liquor away.
My hands balled into fists again, “You’re all assholes, you just embarrassed the shit out of her.” I turned to look at Bree, she looked like she was five minutes from passing out. “You’re on your own tonight, sis. Or ask one of the other guys to take care of you.”
“Chase,” Brad said with a confused look, “seriously? She’s your sister, that –” he jerked his head toward one of the hallways, “is just some chick that ain’t gonna put out for you.”
Don’t punch him. Don’t freaking punch him. “She’s your problem tonight.” I said through clenched teeth and went back to my room.
“That was rude, she's your sister. She should be in here too.”
Harper too? Did no one else realize how much of a bitch Bree just was? “Are you serious? You're gonna defend her after she just spilled that?”
“She's drunk. I'm sure she didn't realize it.”
“That's not an excuse.” I almost groaned, there she goes being sweet as sin again, “Come on Harper, get in.”

About the Author
Molly grew up in California but now lives in the oh-so-amazing state of Texas with her husband and furry four-legged daughter. Some of her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling and long walks on the beach…which roughly translates to being a homebody with her hubby and dishing out movie quotes. When she’s not diving into the world of her characters, she can be found hiding out in her bedroom surrounded by her laptop, cell, Kindle and fighting over the TV remote. She has a weakness for crude-humored movies, fried pickles and loves curling up in a fluffy comforter during a thunderstorm...or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados. That way she can pretend they aren't really happening.
