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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
I did listen to it in one sitting, I kept waiting for the stalker and couldn't stop listening!
It's totally awesome!
I loved both Kyle and Maggie. They are so great together and make you want to listen again and again!
Her voices and accent are terrific. I loved everything about her narration!
It just takes one moment to see what you've been missing...love is right in front of your eyes.
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!!

Since I have enjoyed some of Lauren Dane's other books, I decided to give this series a try and quickly got bored. The story seemed immature and the characters flat to me. Maybe this was one of her earlier novels...
Nothing, it was just weak
Narrator started off pretty fair, and then as different characters were introduced, it seems the narrator ran out of steam
I've read & listened to most of LD's stuff, this is a nice series and the first book is the best. I personally think she would have been better off to write 1 or 2 longer books with more secondary characters and story line.
In this book we meet all the primary characters for the series. Maggie is a high school history teacher with self esteem issues. She starts dating one brother who is an ass to her, but it's Kyle who wins her heart through his caring & gentle nature.
This series is set in the south and I have a weakness for romances set in the south. The narrator does a great job in this book and the next with the male voices. Not so much in books 3 & 4.
Don't waste a credit. Buy the kindle edition with whisper sync & then u get the audio book super cheap. I recommend u do that with the entire series. Overall an entertaining listen.
While this story isn't bad, the narration is poor - very little voice differentiation and intonation. I won't be considering the rest of the series until the narrator changes.
