Publisher's Summary

Everyone says opposites attract. And they must be right, because there’s no logical reason why I’m so drawn to Colin Fitzgerald. I don’t usually go for tattoo-covered, video-gaming, hockey-playing nerd-jocks who think I’m flighty and superficial. His narrow view of me is the first strike against him. It doesn’t help that he’s buddy-buddy with my brother.

And that his best friend has a crush on me.

And that I just moved in with them.

Oh, did I not mention we’re roommates?

I suppose it doesn’t matter. Fitzy has made it clear he’s not interested in me, even though the sparks between us are liable to burn our house down. I’m not the kind of girl who chases after a man, though, and I’m not about to start. I’ve got my hands full dealing with a new school, a sleazy professor, and an uncertain future. So if my sexy brooding roomie wises up and realizes what he’s missing?

He knows where to find me.

Predictable and shallow

The book was interesting enough to finish listening to it, but it was so predictable that I already knew what would happen. The story is mainly about two immature people who list after each other, finally have sex and tell each other, I love you. The characters had little depth. So, overall, a waste of my credit

couldn't finish...

I had to stop listening to this book. Maybe its more geared for a younger reader. I found Summer to be immature and the total college scene to be so childish and boring. Nothing happening in this book held my interest in any way. Jacob Morgan does good on his narration but CJ's voice added to Summer's spoiled and immature behavior. enough was just enough...

The Chase

Summer and Fitzy
I loved this couple, they really are completely different from each other yet really do complement each other.
I am a sucker for a college romance.
I liked that he was running scared because of his past it showed he was vulnerable but he also grew. The honesty might have taken time but once they both opened up it was refreshing.

Summer and all she has to go through it really is no wonder she doubts herself so much because when she does seek help she gets rebuffed. She is a pretty strong character.

I enjoyed the narration; these are two of my favorites so I have nothing but admiration for them.

Narrators? Seriously??

The narrator reading for Fitz is awesome. I’ve listened to his other books and absolutely LOVE HIM.... I would actually prefer for him to read for ALL of the characters.... he does a great job even when reading for the females. Perfect. Couldn’t ask for anything better.
HOWEVER.... who picked the narrators for Summer and Brenna?!?! They sound like 40 year old country club, yacht moms..... neither of them fit the part and it almost ruins the book. These details matter. Something as simple as this can make or break a read.

The book itself I loved.

The book itself I loved. The voive actors were refreshing but.... I can't do the no character switch between chapters. The female voice trying to deepen to the male character and vice versa it just doesn't work. That being said I was actually able to finish this book, there are others that I couldn't.

Fun rom com at its best

I have been waiting for The Chase to come to audio for months and started listening the moment it was released. I love catching up with the Briar Ice Hockey team especially Fitz and Summer who we met in the previous book. CJ Bloom did a phenomenal job bringing out her whimsical nature and her insecurities brought on by her learning disabilities. Jacob Morgan really brought Fitz to life in his stoicism and how he fought their attraction. Can’t wait to return to Briar for Brenna’s book.

This book had a weak storyline, not a lot of depth in characters. Would not recommend.

✫✫ 3.5 Stars ✫✫

I enjoyed this book but I wouldn't say I loved it. It was sweet, fun and very typical New Adult. I liked Summer, she was fun but had a take no sh*t attitude which I loved. Fitz on the other hand was just ok, he was a little to standoffish for my taste. I liked most of the side characters so much more than the main characters and that just means I need to listen to book 2!

I have to say I thought CJ Blooms choice for the voice of Brenns was completely wrong. She made her sound like an old lady when she is like 21. Other than that I did enjoy both CJ Bloom & Jacob Morgan for Summer & Fitzy.

23 chapters back and forth...ENOUGH ALREADY

If you feel like spending 10 hours being frustrated by a repetitive theme that keeps happening over and over, this is the book for you. We have Summer who falls in love with Fitz in the beginning. Then she over hears him dissing her while he tries to convince himself he doesn't want her so she kisses someone else in front of him at midnight instead of him and he wonders why. Then they spend the rest of the book perpetrating the emotional equivalent of a yo yo. She gives up on him and turns to Hunter and Fitz can't stand it. So he does/says something to draw her back in. Gullible idiot that Summer is she falls for it, going back to Fitz, only to have him run and avoid her AGAIN. I'm sorry, but if a guy tells me he thinks about being with me all the time then runs fast and far: STRIKE ONE. Then Fitz tells Summer he thinks about her all the time and can't get her out of his head, then drives off leaving her standing alone without a coat wearing a crop top and skinny jeans at night in a bar parking lot: STRIKE TWO. Also, she gave Fitz a BJ in the men's locker room after which he promises to find her later for a "talk" then does a disappearing act by leaving town and then avoiding her for DAYS: STRIKE THREE. This is an ongoing theme. Summer has a perfectly sweet guy, Hunter, who wants a relationship with her and treats her with caring and respect but she keeps ditching him for the human yo-you, Fitz, who can't figure out what he wants. She finally is about to go on a date with Hunter when Fitz corners Summer in her room demanding she not go. All the while refusing to commit himself when she keeps demanding a reason why. Summer goes on the date anyway only to dump Hunter half way thru and return to Fitz AGAIN. I wanted to reach into the book and shake her. Then there is CJ's narration. This woman has NO volume control. She doesn't know how to narrate ANYTHING without yelling most of her dialogue. Not even Jacob could offset her. I ended up skimming alot of her readings to get thru them quickly.

Contend ???

If you’re into teenage angst, bag stabbing and everyday school problems, with a dash of sex in the mix, here is a well written story.
Just not for me, I found it boring and just a waist, period.

So happy to go back to Briar!

I'm a little disappointed with how long it's taken me to pick up this book saying how much I loved Elle Kennedy's Off Campus series. I can easily say that The Deal, The Mistake, The Goal and The Score are my favourite series. They have everything for a romance lover, college romance, sexy athletes and sassy heroines. 
Now that I've read the Chase I've recaught the bug...Our main characters, Fitzy and Summer are just as amusing as our OGs of Briar University. Summer is sister of previous hockey team star Dean Heywood De Laurentis and has been thrown out of her previous college after an arson accusation. Fitzy and his two room mates offer her a place to stay as a favour to her brother, despite ongoing attraction between the two.

Fitzy has turned into one of my favourite book boyfriends. He's nerdy, brooding and sexy as hell. Summer was a really deep character, trying to break the stereotype of 'spoiled little rich girl' and become her own woman. I really enjoyed reading this development and really clicked with her as she tried to battle her own demons and find herself. It was great to see the return of characters like Garrett, Dean, Morris and more from the other books as well as some new characters I can't wait to hear more about.

The narrator of the story was fabulous. She had a lovely voice and differentiated every character with great ease. 

I can't wait to listen to the next book in the series, The Risk.

Good!

After reading and loving the off campus serie I was so exited for briar U.

The fighting between Summer and Fitzy lasted far too long for my taste. It would have been ok if there were a few chapters, but 80% of the book was a bit much. After they made up, the book was fantastic but it was too little of the book left. It was unnecessary to involve Hunter, I hope he gets his chance in his book. I guess it was just a little too much fighting between them and was frustrating that they could not just make up earlier 😅

Overall the book was good and give it a chance! Summer and Fitzy are a good match for each other 🫶🏼 loved that Fitzy could feel safe too talk to Summer when he finally lets her in!

Another great read

this was just a great read. having the guys from off campus series popping out was just everything for me.
I loved Summer since the first time I read about her in The Score but I didn't know how much I was gonna love her in her she is a ray of light honestly, her being so vulnerable and full of insecurities and negatives thoughts was so relatable, we all have that annoying inner critic, don't get me started on fitzy that judgmental asshat haha, though I wanted to punch him in the nuts for being so closed off I understand where he was coming from, this story is full of angst which I love, the steam is there though. Another great read from the hand of Elle kennedy.

3.5 ★

♡ Tropes: sports-romance, grumpy-and-sunshine, roommates

♡ My Rating: ★★★✧

♡ My Notes and Thoughts:
• Book 1 in the 'Briar U' series
• 'Briar U' is a spinoff series to the 'Off-Campus' series by the same author
• A slow-burn romance between Mr. Grumpy and Ms. Sunshine
• Narrated in two perspectives
• The hero plays ice-hockey 🏒
• The heroine has ADHD
• This book tried to address quite a few topics like, ADHD, the prejudice that all good-looking people are shallow or surface-level, sexual assault
• Which brings me to...
• 【🚨Trigger Warning🚨】: This book contains scenes of attempted sexual assault (albeit unsuccessful ones, thankfully 😌)
• Also, this book does contain a few cliches, which makes it a 3.5★ read for me 😌
• Although this book is part of the 'Briar U' series, it could be read as a standalone

♡ My Recommendation:
I would recommend this book to anyone who's looking for a grumpy-and-sunshine, new-adult sports romance ❤️

Good book

I loved the Off Campus series and was so sad when I finished them that I started to listen to this straight after. But this book just didn't hit the spot I expected more and it just felt a bit rushed. I feel like Summer and Fitz didn't emotionally connect enough I don't know why I didn't feel this book, don't get me wrong I do like how summer is written and how we get to hear her inner Selena voice but I just feel like the communication issues with Fitz really annoyed me. I still liked the book but I feel off about it like I was expecting more.

Narrator may grate on your nerves

I think this would be a better book to read, great storyline but I couldn't relax and enjoy it - I really didn't like the narration. The narration is alot of squaking and shouting and the characters come across as bratty , but only because of how it's narrated

Very unappealing heroine

Elle Kennedy is usually a solid author but unfortunately this book is a dud. Summer is very unappealing- entitled, whiny, flighty and so hard to relate to. There are some very cliche plot elements, a towel drop scene, really? Fitzy I just couldn’t care less about, and there is just way too much minor character setup and very little interaction between Summer and Fitzy in the first half of the book, not to mention no believable chemistry. Skip this one.

Suspense and Love and Hot Accents

I loved that Sommer is not your typical book worm or super studious girl- that was super relatable, a big breath of fresh air from all the other books that exist nowadays. Loved the depth of both characters, Their background and their reasoning. At first I didn’t like the accent of Sommer and the Kappas( idk how you spell that I’m from Australia) but I pushed through and in the end loved all the accents and the loud personalities of everyone. Only negative was I wish the book was longer!
Feel like I have a new favourite author-currently writing this as I listen to it for the second time. Brilliant.

This was my first audio book and I really enjoyed it. Once I started I couldn’t stop.

AMAZING!

This was such a cute romance! The narration was awesome!! Jacob Morgan and CJ Bloom are some of my favourite narrators, and they definitely didn't disappoint in this audiobook. Elle Kennedy is also a favourite author of mine. I've read some other books of hers and loved them so much. She seems to be able to add the right amount of heartbreak, but also enough fun times where you feel fulfilled by the end of the book. This would have been just as good to read, but I definitely don't regret listening to this as an audiobook because it definitely added just that extra bit to the story that made it even more awesome. If you have read the blurb and think you will like it, then I definitely recommend this book as one to read. This is one that you can easily decide to read as a standalone or read on about other characters romances. Enjoy!

Jacob Morgan saves this

Firstly, lots of people will love this. People who like slightly unbelievable romances will. Maybe it is not fair for me to review this so harshly as romance is not a genre I often go for. I got this because I love Jacob Morgan’s narration and he does a great job. The other narrator is constantly at level 11 with every sentence gasping and overly dramatic. The story itself is a standard odd couple thrust together, fall for one another etc etc. It’s a decent story within those bounds. This was the daily deal or I’d be returning it.

Captivating

In my opinion this book was epic! Granted the dialogue was a bit graffic for my taste but the character dynamics were on point. In those rear moments in-between listening i found myself feeling as though I was in love and had to reminds myself, these are fictional characters in a book. I loved this book and if I wasn't listening to it I was thinking about it

.
