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.

    "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.

    "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!!

    "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!

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "Not personally my thing..."
    What did you like best about Giving Chase? What did you like least?

    What I liked the most? Probably the fact that the writer got a lot right, technically.
    What I liked the least? ...The concept of the story and the lack of male incite to make the story authentic. I think I've been a little spoilt by Nora Roberts, and don't relate well to stories that make it out like the lead female is the most amazing thing since sliced bread...

    I actually think another person would love this story, but for me, I just cringed my way through a lot of it...to the point that I couldn't finish it...sorry.


    If you’ve listened to books by Lauren Dane before, how does this one compare?

    n/a


    What aspect of Aletha George’s performance would you have changed?

    n/a


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    ?? Depends...probably not if it was played out the way it was written.


    Any additional comments?

    I think my rating is more due a personality difference as opposed to this being a bad book. Like I said before, someone else could very easily love this book, as it is well written.

    Story
    "Give it up for the Chase Brothers!"
    Would you listen to Giving Chase again? Why?

    Yes, think I would. Who wouldn't want Kyle Chase in their life? Even if through a book! WOW


    What other book might you compare Giving Chase to and why?

    I've listened to a lot of Romance Novels and try not to compare. The Chase Brothers are unique so there's no comparison.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Maggie and Kyle first met.


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

    Not really. I stopped and started. But, it was one I finished with a smile on my face. Have to love a happy ending. Of course life is not always like that but I do like my romance novels to end happily. That's why it's a book. The ending can be as the writer chooses not like real life.


    Any additional comments?

    Audible is a great way to listen to a book. The narrator is especially what make the book come to life. OK, Audible you need to offer your special credits. Would like to get some deals on here.
