This far-fetched sequel to Taking Chances begins with one night of anonymous Las Vegas sex between Liam Taylor and the woman he calls Moon, but unfortunately it doesn’t end there. In a ridiculously improbable second encounter a year later, Liam not only reunites with Moon—whose real name is Kennedy—but is obligated to spend time with her. Kennedy and her twin sister are being threatened by thugs in their Florida hometown, so they travel to stay with their uncle in California. Lo and behold, Liam works for their uncle and is awarded the task of “babysitting” the frightened young women. As McAdams continues pushing coincidence just one or two degrees beyond the believability point, everything falls too neatly into place for Liam and Kennedy. This one is strictly for McAdams’s die-hard fans, and even they might struggle to suspend their disbelief. (June)
