TAKING CHASE had more of a suspense element than the previous book, and it was done well… And the main couple in this one was excellent.  They both gave as good as they got and were evenly matched.  Definitely tenderly sweet.” ~Under the Covers

We met Shane in the first book when he shortly dated his now sister in law.  Although I wasn’t a bit fan of that intermingling of siblings and picking up your brothers’ exes, well, Kyle was the better choice in that case.  But Shane always seemed like the dark, sexy and brooding type.  Typical cop behavior.

Of course I had to love that he got a heroine that has gone through a lot and who is actually on the run from her ex husband who went completely nuts and tried to kill her.  She comes to Petal, Georgia looking for a new life and with a new identity.  She is now Cassie Gambol.  She left everything behind and will never be able to work in her profession again.  But she escaped with her life and that’s what counts.

I loved Cassie, she’s a survivor.  Definitely a great heroine and one that adds a little something different to the Chase clan.  Shane had to break down her barriers and get her to trust him but it was perfect to see, and he even managed to rein in some of his alpha behavior.

Goes to show that when the Chase family wants something done, they get it done.  I continue to fall in love with the Chase’s as a series and as a family.  The women that have come into the family have all bonded and become great friends.  And speaking of family, even though Cassie is on the run she does have a protective brother.  I wouldn’t mind seeing more of him in the future.

TAKING CHASE had more of a suspense element than the previous book, and it was done well.  The conflict was interesting without overwhelming the story.  And the main couple in this one was excellent.  They both gave as good as they got and were evenly matched.  Definitely tenderly sweet.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
