New Release with Review: The Chase by Elle Kennedy

August 6, 2018

(Briar U, Book 1)

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.

I think it’s safe to say that everyone and their momma was awaiting the arrival of The Chase. Plans were made, wines were restocked, and hockey jerseys were custom made just for the sake of this book. I mean who doesn’t want to read about a tatted up gamer nerd hockey player and the infamous Dean Di laurentis fashionista little sister? 

“ A woman isn't defined by her boyfriends. She’s defined by her achievements. And her shoes.” 

If you’ve read some of the previous books in the Off Campus Series then you’ve seen a glimpse of Colin Fitzgerald aka Fitz, here and there. He's respectful, keeps to himself, and let’s not forget he’s freakin hot. When you’re part of a hockey team that is considered one of the best, attending parties and getting some recognition is not unheard of. But attending a new year's eve party with the one girl who makes his brain go haywire is another story and when signals get crossed and feelings become bruised, this leads to an enemies to lovers sort of drama. And you know what they say about drama: We can never have enough of it.

At first glance, your immediate impression of Summer Di laurentis is that she’s a hardcore party girl who likes to have fun and that’s the only she’s good for. But underneath it all is a woman who tries her best to over come personal obstacles and is a hard worker. No one see that in the beginning but once you start to strip away the outer layer of her, you realize that this girl is pretty damn awesome and has immaculate taste in fashion. Summer is not perfect by any means and one incident now has her attending a new school and being roommates with three of the Campus most eligible hockey players. But there’s one player who makes it extremely hard for her to have a clear head when he’s around. 

I really liked the fact that the author made the heroine different. On the outside she was this put together woman who seemed like she had everything figured out and life was just perfect but that wasn’t the case. She was flawed, relatable, and she stood up for herself when it mattered. Now don’t get me wrong, I did have some issues with her and Fitz and I really felt like a lot of time was wasted and I was frustrated with the non communication on his part but luckily what needed to be said, was said. 

Overall, I enjoyed this one and I can’t wait for the next book in the series because judging by what happened, it’s going to be damn good!
