Review: CHASED BY LOVE by Melissa Foster!

Release Date: August 17th, 2016

Type: Contemporary Romance, Actress, Rock Star, Series, Not-so-bad boy

My Review: This is one of those books that I genuinely enjoyed, but I just didn't get sucked into it. You know how, when you're reading a good book, you forget you're actually reading? It just plays like a movie in your head? Well, I didn't get that with Chased By Love. I was very entertained and interested while reading, it just wasn't so engrossing that I forgot about the real world. I think that might have to do with how fast things seem to move, and how the dialog just felt a little.. off, I guess.

But don't let the above paragraph turn you off this book, or make you think that I didn't like it. Not true! I did like it. I loved reading about Boone and Trish, and watching the two of them come together despite everything else going on in their lives. This is a good book, and a very enjoyable read. And I liked the author's writing style enough that I would gladly check out more books in this series, The Ryders. Just what I got of Trish's brothers made me think their own stories would be amusing and worth a read.

Cover Lovin': I really like this cover. I especially appreciate that  the cover model has Trish's exact tattoo - that's hard to match up, sometimes.

Recommendation: I'm a complete newbie to the series, and I did just fine - so no prior knowledge necessary. That said, I'd love to hear more about Trish's brothers.

Final Rating: THREE POINT FIVE out of FIVE stars! A fun read, and I'd love to check out the rest of the series.

Disclaimer: I received a free, advanced copy in exchange for a fair and honest review.

She lingered there, brazenly licking her lips.   He leaned in close—so close she thought he might kiss her. And damn it to hell, she wanted him to. Lust and challenge pulsed between them, thick and alive like a third heart.   teaser 4 About Melissa Foster: Melissa Foster Melissa Foster is a New York Times & USA Today bestselling and award-winning author.
