Publisher's Summary

Cassie Gambol is on the run. In what seems like another lifetime, her ex-husband nearly ended her life and effectively ended her successful career as a vascular surgeon. But even though the justice system found him guilty of attempted murder, he fled while awaiting sentencing and Carly Sunderland became Cassie Gambol.

Fleeing Los Angeles, Cassie heads to small and off-the-map Petal, Georgia, to start her life again. Shane Chase, a man who's held himself away from commitment since his fiancée dumped him several years before, knows the beautiful newcomer is hiding something. He's wildly attracted to her strength and her underlying vulnerability as well. But the last thing Cassie wants is another big, overwhelming man who wants to control her life.

A battle begins between Shane, who knows what he wants and Cassie, who tries to keep a distance between herself and the very handsome sheriff. But Cassie's ex is back and he wants her dead.

    "THERE'S 2 BRO'S LEFT SO I'M OFF TO PETAL GEORGIA"

    Shane's story - he's the tough dislikable Sheriff and oldest Chase brother who we met in book 1 and because of a cheating girlfriend he's a 'use them then lose them' type - until he meets Cassie who thankfully brings out the best in him but she's even more physically and emotionally scarred than him.

    This is a feel good contemporary love story about obsession, trust, forgiveness and love in a small town in America where we meet some great characters including the handsome Chase bothers and their family, a damaged and violated woman on the run, a brutal ex, some jealous wanna be's and a Sheriff who has to fight for the woman he loves. It has a good plot which contains drama, tension, heartache, sex, romance, lust and love.

    Could be a stand alone listen but you may miss some of the background.

    Worth a credit? Yes and eagerly looking forward to the others.

    Story
    "Love and Family"
    What did you love best about Taking Chase?

    Love how close Shane was to his family.


    Which character – as performed by Aletha George – was your favorite?

    Cassie was spot on, but I must say I couldn't stand the little wimpy voice Ms. George gave to Shane!


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

    Love and Family


    Any additional comments?

    I agree with the other listeners, I can't wait to read what the other brothers bring to the table.

    "Not as good as "Giving Chase""
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was such an average plot that I do believe was a waste of time; but it did have a few interesting parts. I enjoyed her previous book so much and maybe I expected the same thing with this book.


    Did Taking Chase inspire you to do anything?

    It was too boring and dragged out so long that no, the only thing it inspired me do do was turn it off.

    "Good combination of suspense and love"
    Any additional comments?

    I read the first book and was not all that moved to hurray and get this book in the series. To my surprise this one was much better. The story centers around Cassie who is running from her ex husband and she meets Shane Chase and they fall in love. I enjoyed the secondary characters in the story some who were also in the first book. I like how the author brings out the personalities of all the characters. It was just good to me...I'm not running to get the third book but this was an enjoyable book to listen to.

    Story
    "Shane Chase - a real Southern gentleman!"
    Where does Taking Chase rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    From the 'dust cover' of this book (bare chested man and dreamy faced woman) I presumed this book was hot and steamy with no storyline. How wrong could I be!

    Yes the story was hot but it also tackled the distressing issue of domestic violence. The story followed Cassie Gambol as she attempts to get on with her new life after leaving a violent marriage.

    While I wouldn't rate this book as my number one, it is a read that gets you in.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The Chase family and especially their mother Polly are a tight unit that care deeply for each other. The men of the family are all alpha males - buff and beautiful. The women are funny and gorgeous - the adult version the Waltens.

    I guess the best part of this book is the fact that each character is so well defined that the reader is compelled to keep reading just to find out what comes next.

    There is a storyline to this book - yes there is hot steamy sex - but there is also life, compassion, family and fun.


    Have you listened to any of Aletha George’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first time I have listened to Aletha George and I am now her number one fan. I love Aletha's southern accent - her Polly Chase character had me in stitches.


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

    Polly Chase - you rock!


    Any additional comments?

    Now that I have started on the Chase family series I guess I will download them all. These books are stories about a family (hot family I must admit). It is a pity that all the dust jackets for these books are bare chested hunky men because I'm sure some readers will give the books a miss thinking they are all sex and no storyline.
