Use to love to read until audible... now love to listen
I asked for the Rough Riders series last year...Chase is one bad boy that I would love to break, but Ava does a good job. This is one great series that leaves you wanting more. Although this is book 11 I'm happy to have it.
A bad boy being tamed.
she goes with the flow and makes you want more
I want a bad cowboy
Please, Please, Please get the other 12 books on audio
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
This book was fantastic! Great story line that was easy to follow, always kept you guessing, and even threw you for a loop now and again. Plus it included lots of steamy hot scenes. I'd definitely recommend this book. But Audible where are the other books in the Rough Rider series. Lorelei James is fabulous and I plan to listen lots more of her books.
I thought the narrator did a good job with the delivery of the story.
I love this series, but can't stand this narrator. She couldn't do the male voices justice. Chase didn't sound masculine enough. Sometimes the male and female voices sound so similar, it was so hard to tell them apart. Why did they change narrator in the middle of the series??
I love the story line between Chase and Ava. The friendship that develops first with an underlying sexual heat makes for a worthwhile read. Even Chase's vulnerability that he shows to Ava makes him a true hero.
At first I struggled with the narrators voice because it just wasn't what I wanted. She was very good but I had different expectations, even the cover needs to be of a shorter man to represent the story better.
As I sit here with a big fat smile plastered on my face, I know I'll never forget Chasin' Eight. Lorelei had my attention from beginning to end, 100% of the time. Love, love, LOVED Chase and Ava and while I've never been a Bull Rider or Movie Star, I found I could really relate to them both. It was as people with feelings and faults and all that goes with that. Amazing!! Lorelei developed their love story masterfully. The heat and the passion between them was scorching!! As with all of Lorelei's novel's though, this ain't your Mama's romance novel nor is it for those looking for prim and proper, strictly vanilla sex lives so consider yourself warned! *grin* Making the story even more fun, I listened to it on Audible. Vanessa Caine was FANTASTIC as the narrator! Loved her reading! She had the perfect amount of accent, enthusiasm and sizzle. She made the voices differ in just the perfect amount to totally add to the story and help create the individual characters in my mind. Absolutely loved her and will look for her again!!
best book of the series. I will listen to it again and again I'm sure
If they keep the same narrator then yes
I didn't get through enough of it
I had listen to all 10.5 books before it and when I got to Chasin' Eight it felt like my grandmother was reading to me and that was just uncomfortable.
Great Books Don't Promote Violence
Chase, the youngest and shortest McKay brother, wasn't that interesting to me. He's a rodeo star who gets as much attention for his sexual escapades as his athletic ability. Since he's over 21, I expected a more mature and engaging hero - maybe someone who appreciated having a loving family and financial security. I did like his non-violent and respectful attitude toward women
Chase meets Ava, an actress (from a rich & caring family) who was just embarrassed by having her boyfriend publicly announced he was gay. Ava also seems a little immature and whiny - she had artistic talent, good health, and the freedom to pursue interests but choose to dwell on minor problems.
To me, the best parts of Chasin' Eight were the details about cowboys & rodeos, the down-to-earth people involved in the sport, and glimpses of small town life. Might have liked this book more when I was in my late teens or twenties.
