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.

Total B rated book!

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

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.

Oh my!

I know I am stealing from Emmie Armstrong from The Rocker Series (TAB) but "Oh my Gods!" This book is amazing. I have not read any books from the preceding series but now I definitely going back to read them all.
I hope the narration on the previous series is just as good as it is in this book.

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.

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.

Great narrators for a great story

Summer and Colin.
Colin and Summer.

I dunno you guys...I kinda shipped her and Hunter. Sigh. I mean did I hate Colin? NO. He's a tatted up nerd who plays hockey...Summer said it herself, he's a unicorn. But...I feel bad for Hunter.

This book not only had a hecking cute love story (minus that part where they kinda lead each other on there for a beat) but it covers some pretty solid topics; emotional abuse from parents, ADHD and handsy professors being the main topics. Also slut shaming is covered too.

The cameo's of the Off Campus guys made my heart happy

Love Elle Kennedy, but not my favourite book

The dynamics between the characters got frustrating and the way the relationship developed just didn’t hit the spot for me. Will definitely buy more from Elle Kennedy in this series though as the premise of the series was good.

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.

Summer Time

Loved it. Hilarious with some of Summer's unfiltered comments and loved her bloody adorable family. Big thumbs up but my heart feels sad and sore for Hunter.

Fully enjoyed

I really enjoyed this book and would love a sequel to the story line . Being someone who has dyslexia and struggles with feeling stupid and struggled with school it gives you reassurence . I am succeeding in my study and am confident now and can say a book like this That not only show cases learning disability but involving loved ones in on your struggles would give many teens hope
