Giving Chase

The Chase Brothers series

by Lauren Dane

The Chase boys. Ridiculously hot and notoriously single.

When landscaper Kyle Chase takes notice of Maggie Wright, all of Petal, Georgia, wonders what the quiet schoolteacher is hiding underneath her tight bun and boring blouses. Even Maggie doesn’t quite get it, but after a failed relationship and a disastrous attempt to get back out there, she’s no match against the famous Chase charm, and Kyle has it in spades.

Kyle wants Maggie in his life—and in his bed—and he doesn’t mind getting down and dirty to prove it. For years he’s avoided the kind of trouble that comes with “good girls” like her, but Maggie’s the best trouble he’s ever been in. He craves more of it. And more of her.

But even as their love grows into thoughts of forever, a hidden danger from Maggie’s past threatens to tear them apart. And when Maggie suddenly disappears, Kyle must put his faith in his family and race to save the love of his life before he loses her forever.

The Chase is on. One small town. Four hot brothers. And enough heat to burn up anyone who dares to get close. Don’t miss the next books: Taking Chase, Chased and Making Chase.

***Review includes what some MIGHT consider spoilers but the info is easily found with the descriptions of previous versions of this book***

This is a re-release of an older book and I think that the blurb leaves out a few things that might be important to readers that the original included 🙂  So thanks to a night out and a bit of an accident with a plate of chili cheese fries, good girl Maggie finds herself on the radar of the Chase brothers.  What this new blurb doesn’t share is that her first outing is with Shane Chase, town sheriff.  Unfortunately for Maggie (and Shane, but good news for Kyle), thanks to a previous relationship Shane is scared of anything even just the tiniest bit resembling commitment.  When he thinks that a couple of dates with Maggie could actually have him wanting more, he heads for the hills … leaving Maggie to be swept off her feet by his brother.

Now, some could find this a little awkward but I think that Dane does an absolutely fantastic job of addressing it and really the two of them never get all that involved.  Instead it gives Kyle the perfect opportunity to show Maggie that not all Chase men are the same and that he’s ready to be the stand-up guy she needs.

The Chases are so close and the connection between them is wonderful to see.  All of them, even Shane after a few awkward moments, accept Maggie into the family.  She finds herself being shown the love and support that her own family has never given her … and that she sorely needs.  But Maggie has a stalker and he’s not too happy about Kyle.  It’s going to take all of Maggie’s strength and the support of the Chases to keep her safe.

Giving Chase has a lot heartwarming moments, especially as Maggie starts to really believe in herself and the love that Kyle is offering her.  But Dane mixes it well with the danger and action of dealing with a troubled ex who isn’t willing to let Maggie go.  I highly recommend giving this one a shot and I’m looking forward to seeing the rest of the Chase brothers find their match!
