Ten years after the first book was published, I still found the Chase Brothers series to be every bit as enjoyable and sexy as the first few times I read it. ~ Slick, Guilty Pleasures
I originally planned on reviewing Giving Chase for this Flashback Friday review but once I was back in Petal, Georgia and in the bosom of the Chase family I binge re-read the whole series again. Honestly, I couldn’t just read one! Ten years after the first book was published, I still found this series to be every bit as enjoyable and sexy as the first few times I read it. I will note however that author Lauren Dane has really grown in her writing (even from the first book to the last), but I still love the Chase family and this series immensely and I hold out hope that maybe one day she’ll to a prequel and write Polly and Edward’s story because I have a feeling that would be a very entertaining story! **This series is what I would call spicy romance, there is sex but this not an erotic series.***
This book was interesting in that the heroine dated one brother at the beginning of this book and ended up falling in love and marrying his younger brother. History teacher Maggie Wright after dating several not right for her men including Sheriff Shane Chase (aka dumbass) agrees to date Kyle Chase, owner of a very successful landscape business. I liked that Kyle was interested in Maggie all along, but after his brother made some crucial mistakes, he didn’t swoop right in; he let Maggie get past it and then approached her carefully. Maggie had some real self esteem issues due to a horrible mother and sister (and honestly these two characters were a bit over the top), but her best friends Liv and Dee have always been by her side and Kyle was enamored from day one. I liked these two together and they complimented each other well. Maggie had to deal with Kyle’s exes making problems and Kyle had to deal with Maggie’s crappy family and a man she dated that just wouldn’t go away but through it all they fell in love and Maggie was welcomed into the Chase family with open arms making Kyle’s parents Polly and Edward very happy.
