This was all kinds of fun!! What comes to mind is sweet, sexy and sassy!!

This book has been one of my most highly anticipated books of the year. And I’m relieved to be able to say that it delivered.

The Chase was a college sports romance that worked for me in all kinds of ways. It had everything I like about NA college sports novels. Emotional situations, sexual attraction that fizzled, hysterical OTT moments, and a cast that was as hilarious as it was charming. All in all I thought the author gave this novel a perfectly balanced feel to it.

Fitzy was not your usual jock. On the outside sure he fit the bill, tatted with a scruffy beard and chiseled abs. But inside he was an introvert and a double  major in FineArts and computer programming. Summer was bubbly, smart, a fashion enthusiast and a Chanel devotee. She grew up with a silver spoon in her mouth, but that didn’t diminish her character or her genuine and likable demeanor. That girl had me constantly cracking up. Self confident, hilarious, and witty – she was a strong women that stood up for herself and wasn’t hesitant to ask for help when needed.

I loved Summer and Fitzy together, even though they took some detours to get it all figured out, they were both incredibly likable characters. Not all of their decisions were wise, but they were typical for college students and they were handled in often unexpected and fascinating ways.

The book also introduced our next couple and all I can say is WOWZER!!! This next book is going to be an entertaining ride. Maybe even more so then The Chase – all I can say is enemy to lovers!!!


The Chase – Elle Kennedy


Everyone says opposites attract. And they must be right, because there’s no logical reason why I’m so drawn to Colin Fitzgerald. I don’t usually go for tattoo-covered, video-gaming, hockey-playing nerd-jocks who think I’m flighty and superficial. His narrow view of me is the first strike against him. It doesn’t help that he’s buddy-buddy with my brother.

And that his best friend has a crush on me.

And that I just moved in with them.

Oh, did I not mention we’re roommates?

I suppose it doesn’t matter. Fitzy has made it clear he’s not interested in me, even though the sparks between us are liable to burn our house down. I’m not the kind of girl who chases after a man, though, and I’m not about to start. I’ve got my hands full dealing with a new school, a sleazy professor, and an uncertain future. So if my sexy brooding roomie wises up and realizes what he’s missing?

He knows where to find me.
