Review: CHASING CASEY by Jane Anthony!

Release Date: January 2016

Buy Links: Amazon

Type: Contemporary Romance, New Adult, Stand Alone

My Review:
This book shocked me a little. Even after reading the description, I think I had a different idea of what the book was about before actually starting it. Which worked for me, because I was that much more unsure about what was going to happen - and therefore that much desperate to keep reading.

This book follows the typical romance formula, while still managing to be original enough that I wasn't sure how it was going to end. And that drama at the end. Whoa, boy. No spoilers, but I was definitely thrown for a loop. Drama to the max, and totally a shock. 

I'm over love triangles for the most part, but I think the author did a great job here of making it just different enough that I wasn't bored with the idea. 

Cover Lovin': Very steamy. Two thumbs up!

Recommendation: No prior knowledge necessary!

Final Rating: THREE POINT FIVE out of FIVE (3.5/5)!  This was a good read. I didn't fall in love with this book, but it gave me a very entertaining afternoon. So it definitely deserves a read.

About the Book: ~AJ~
Casey Grainger is not only the epitome of the girl next door, she’s the girl of my dreams. The blonde bombshell of a bartender who watches me with sky blue eyes, smiles with the sweetest dimples, and whose laughter is as melodic as chimes.
She stole my heart the way sunlight sneaks up on the day. Then a death in her family took her away from me. Now my heart lives in Texas while my body rots in New Jersey. As if that’s not bad enough, the ranch hand on her family’s farm is her damned ex-fiancé.
Austin still loves her, and he’s made it known. So Casey has a choice to make. It’s either him or me, but I’m far too stubborn to give up the fight.
That’s the one upside to having nothing left -- I have nothing left to lose.

I don’t date musicians -- I don’t date period -- yet I find myself drawn to the dark and broody sound tech, whose wailing drum beats thump in time with the cadence of my heart. Beneath the arrogant grin and cocky one-liners, AJ Morello is a lonely man, burdened by the choices he’s made. But, he’s not the only one with regrets. 
Mine goes by the name of Austin Krehley. 
After seven years away, there’s still a connection. A tiny spark that slowly builds to a burning flame the longer I stay. 
Two completely different men both hold two completely different pieces of my heart, but I can’t have them both. 
A sexy country boy and a sultry rocker -- how’s a girl to choose?
