Publisher's Summary

Some small towns grow really good-looking men! This is the case with the four Chase brothers.

The homegrown hotties are on the wish list of every single woman in town and Maggie Wright is no exception. Maggie has finally had it with the men she's been dating but a spilled plate of chili cheese fries drops Shane Chase right into her lap. The sheriff is hot stuff but was burned by a former fiancée and is quite happy to play the field.

After Shane's skittishness sends him out the door, Maggie realizes that Kyle Chase has had his eye on her from the start. Now that Shane has messed up, Kyle has no intention of letting anything stop him from wooing her right into his bed. Now, despite Maggie's happiness and growing love for Kyle, a dark shadow threatens everything - she's got a stalker and he's not happy at all. In the end, Maggie will need her wits, strength, and the love of her man to get her out alive.

    I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again

    "WELL.... THE CHASE BROTHERS DON'T NEED TO CHASE ME"

    We're off to a good start to this new Chase Brothers series - a contemporary, sweet romance with four drool worthy hunky handsome brothers who can always get their pick of A list girls and they all live in small town America.

    This one is Kyle's story who's no tough alpha male type but he is a passionate, caring, thoughtful, honourable and he is very protective over the lady who has caught his eye - Maggie but unfortunately she has a real inferiority complex due to her upbringing and doesn't feel worthy of him. Added to that there's trauma and tension as he's being pursued by some nasty bitchy types and she is being stalked by an ex boyfriend and things get far worse before they can get better for the pair.

    It also had a few eye rolling cheesy bits but hey we all know that sadly it's only fiction but it was a heart warming romance that was sexy but definitely not erotica, with some good supporting characters who all have their say and input into the couple's romance but thankfully this is one where the downtrodden underdog finally gets her man.

    Worth a credit? Yes and I'm ready, willing and anticipating spending my credits on the other 3 stories.

    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!

    "3.5 Stars Cute story"

    Okay, it wasn't a profound book. Personally, I would have loved to see the characters on a deeper level. But considering how short the book was, it was well planned and executed. I don't like short books as it doesn't seem like you "get into" the book and suddenly...oopps! It's over now. I liked the characters a lot though, and they were able to draw you in in a very short amount of time. I felt the dialogue was well written, despite how other reviewers felt. I REALLY enjoyed how realistic it was. Too many romance novels have everything being perfect. Heroine gets in trouble, brave main man runs in saves the day. I loved in this book how it showed not everything would be perfect. Bad guys get a chance to hurt again sometimes. I loved that Kyle was "real" enough to be truly upset and actually break down. It kinda drove home the depth of his love and concern for Maggie. He didn't run in with guns blazing. That's real. I really would rather my husband leave it to the professionals in a situation like that and don't live in a fantasy that I'd like him saving me:-) And I'm not going to forget to mention, sex scenes are very hot and steamy. After all, that's what sets a romance book apart from a novel right?;-)

    In the end, it was a very well-written and engaging book. For a short book. It's not a meat-and-potatoes book, more like a really good appetizer. My thanks to Ms. Dane for a very enjoyable listen and I recommend it to anyone looking for a short little escape from reality while reading a book.

    "Dumb."

    Corny for lack of a better description. Could also say "sophomoric". I forced myself to finish it. It was a combination of everything that lacked for me. Sorry.

    "So worth it!"
    What did you love best about Giving Chase?

    I was afraid I wouldn't like the dating one brother, but Lauren Dane made it tastefully smooth. The Chase family has a great relationship with each other.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did listen to it in one sitting, I kept waiting for the stalker and couldn't stop listening!

    "I loved it!!!"
    If you could sum up Giving Chase in three words, what would they be?

    It's totally awesome!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved both Kyle and Maggie. They are so great together and make you want to listen again and again!


    What does Aletha George bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her voices and accent are terrific. I loved everything about her narration!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    It just takes one moment to see what you've been missing...love is right in front of your eyes.

    Any additional comments?

    This was a good read. Don't get me wrong I did enjoy the story but I'm not so anxious about getting the second book. I would of liked to learn more of what happened with the female character's family. I hate weak female characters and this one eventually found her power and strength near the end and I love that.

    "Just a great listen!!"

    I'd read the Chase books before, but it's been a few years ~ and Oh, I SO enjoying getting to know the Chase brothers again in Book 1, Giving Chase! I'm not even going to go into a whole drawn out review, but what I AM going to tell you is that one of the reasons I love Lauren Dane's writing so very much is because of the sticky situations, tough circumstances, and just plain hard choices she chooses to tackle in her book. In this book Maggie starts out dating and starting to fall for one Chase brother, Shane (who has been totally burned) who leaves her swinging in the wind, and ends up falling for another brother, the adorable and oh, so sexy Kyle. She's totally not a ho, but we all know that's running through your head, right? Ms. Dane totally takes it on, and aces it! And after Maggie gets attacked, Ms. Dane AGAIN tackles the tough subject of how women feel after this, if on a small scale. I just overall love that her heroines are not in your face, but they ARE up front and real about life.

    And I really loved the narrator for this book, she totally brought the characters to life for me!
    I'm thrilled to be getting to know the Chase's again, and if you're an audio fan and you haven't picked this series up before, let me recommend you get it!
    I see that all the books are slated to come out pretty quickly, and I can't wait to get them ALL!!

    "Absolutely Am In Love With This Book"

    This is the first book in the series and what an amazing start. I feel in love with Maggie and the Chase Boys. This story had it all it will make you laugh out loud, want to cry , and make you so mad you want to beat up some of the characters. This book had me from the first word till the last it was a great audiobook and one I recommend you add to your library I'm glad that I did and can't wait to get the others in this series.

    "Very Enjoyable"

    Listen, Giving Chase: Chase Brothers, Book 1 was adorable...very enjoyable. This is a fun, sweet, novel. Entertaining.
    This is what we want when we buy a book like this. Are there lessons to learn...probably not...morals to the story...no...but if you want to be entertained...this is going to fit the bill.
    Credit ready...yes!

    "Passes the time while using the treadmill"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It made the time spent on the treadmill less tiresome.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    It is a predictable love story, It did have a story, unlike some love stories. It is a damsel in distress story. The characters are likable.


    What three words best describe Aletha George’s voice?

    She is okay.


    Did Giving Chase inspire you to do anything?

    No, but I enjoyed it.
