Blurb ~ Nate Peters is living the playboy life. He has great friends, a great job, no responsibilities, no girlfriend, and he loves it. Nate, being incredibly skilled with a pick-up line, has never failed to get a girl in his life… until one day he meets Rosie York. Rosie is completely uninterested in him. Being unable to stand a dented ego, Nate makes it his mission to win her over. Not used to putting in much effort, Nate is surprisingly enjoying the chase of this off-limits little brunette. Maybe he has finally met his match… But Rosie has a few surprises of her own which will make it remarkably more difficult for him to get close to her. *Please note that this is a companion novel to Nothing Left to Lose*
 My Review 
March 2. 2014 ~ ☮ ~4 Stars ★★★★
Copy provided by the Author for an Honest Review

Let me start by saying that I did not like Nate in the beginning. Personally he seemed to surpass the typical man-whore stereotypes and take it one step further. Every night Nate has a new girl, hell, maybe even more than one a day. It’s his life, basically sex is the only release he knows. Actually having a girlfriend? Yeah, right, not this man.

I was quickly sucked into this story. I’ve read other books by this author and loved them all. Slowly Enjoying the Chase grew on me and even with a somewhat lengthy read I managed to finish by 4 AM.  I’m honestly shocked by how much this book grew on me. Both Nate and Rosie were great characters and the dual POV was a great way to understand them both. Again I repeat I wasn’t a fan of Nate. Especially when he gets mad, he doesn’t always behave in the most adult like manner. Depending on perception there is a sorta cheating moment that occurs but again I think it’s all based on perception. Rosie was a strong character and considering her shitty past I was surprised she forgave and moved on with Nate so easily and quickly.

I was surprised by how different this book was than Nothing Left to Lose. Where that book had a more suspenseful nature mixed in with the romance, I felt that Enjoying the Chase was more focused on the relationship and growing bond between Nate and Rosie rather than any other outside drama. Considering there is not much more than a romance going on, the story did not feel overly long or draggy to which I am extremely grateful.

Nate first meets Rosie in the hospital visiting his best friend Ashton, Anna and their newborn son. (Characters from Nothing to Lose.) Nate’s first thought is how badly he wants Rosie in his bed. She’s a distraction he wants out of his system and he has plans for her. What Nate never expects is to have Rosie turn him down. Nate NEVER gets turned down. His overly cheap and skeevy lines seem to work like magic and have panties thrown at him in an instant. Rosie’s panties don’t come anywhere near Nate and he’s extremely disappointed. Over and over Rosie turns down Nate and his man-whore ways. Rosie has secrets that make her life a lot more complicated and living the young life like Nate is out of the question.

However, Nate doesn’t give up easily. He can’t get Rosie out of his mind and won’t stop until he has her. Of course things get a bit more complicated when Rosie informs him she doesn’t sleep with anyone she doesn’t love. Uh-Oh. Hold the breaks. Obviously this puts Nate, a man who can’t without sex for a day, in a touchy position. Should he give up on Rosie and move on? Or does he have the will power to last and make her fall in love with him? (I don’t think Rosie’s ‘secret’ was too hard to guess even before it was brought up. But I don’t think it matter because she’s such a strong and powerful character that this just makes her much more likable and respectable.)

This book had a surprising amount of LOL moments. I wasn’t expecting that. I had to take a break at one point because of how badly my face was hurting. The character of DJ added a lot to this and I don’t want to give away too much about him but he was great, adorable and almost too perfect. 

When the end came I was shocked. Things seemed over too fast and I was sad to say goodbye to these characters. I couldn’t have been more surprised but the shocking climax at the end though, it was pretty scary. Nate completely turned me for a loop. I am totally a Nate-A-Holic now and I’m not usually one to fall for a bad boys charm no matter what. Rosie is just what Nate needs to become a real civilized man. He learns how to grow up to a point and be worthy of someone like her. As if him being a SWAT agent, a deadly shot and a perverted non-romantic, he is also a hero and I guarantee he will capture your heart as he did mine and Rosie’s. This was a great romantic read with a steady non-insta-love romance that was enjoyable to read. Smart mouth kids, over-exuberant mothers and a beautiful love is what you’ll find here…

About The Author 
Kirsty MoseleyMy name is Kirsty. I was born in Hertfordshire, England. In 2000 I moved to Norfolk, it was there that I met my husband, Lee. Now, what can I say about Lee, apart from everyone should have one? He's my biggest supporter, and I wouldn't be where I am today without his encouragement and endless support. He is my inspiration behind most of my male leads, I always try to bring a little of him in somewhere, be it his kindness, selflessness, or just his ability to make me feel treasured. In 2005, I was gifted with the birth of my son. He is, and always will be, the best thing I have ever done in my life. As you can probably tell, I'm a very proud mummy. I have always been interested in writing, but after the birth of my son I accidentally came across an amateur writing site. After a couple of months of just reading on there, I finally plucked up the courage and posted one of my stories. I was shocked and overwhelmed by the support of readers on there and they gave me the confidence to get where I am today. In April 2012, I self-published my first novel ‘The Boy Who Sneaks in my Bedroom Window’. And in October 2012 I took the plunge again, publishing my second novel, 'Always You.' Lastly, if I had to sum myself up in one word, it would probably be ‘daydreamer’ – but unlike most of my school teachers, I don’t necessarily view that as a bad thing. After all, I read somewhere once that books are like waking dreams….  


“Im happy on my own now; my life is finally back on track after five years of shit. I dont need a man to make me happy anymore. I. Dont. Need. You,” she stated, breaking the last sentence up for emphasis.

I could see she meant it, and I was going to have to work my ass off to change that. Could I get behind the huge defensive wall that shed obviously built around her heart? Could she make herself vulnerable again? And could I trust myself not to hurt her? For a split second I considered just leaving, like shed asked, just walking away in case I wasnt man enough for this task. But I didnt want to leave. I liked her, probably way too much for my own good. I could easily see myself falling for her, hell, Id probably fall for her long before she let down her defences for me, and I would be the one with the broken heart in the end.
“You dont need me, but you want me,” I whispered, inching my face closer to hers, begging her with my eyes to give me a shot.
Her breath seemed to catch in her throat, her face turned to complete panic as she struggled to stay composed.
She didnt say anything, so I continued. “You want me to fight for you, you want me to stay here and tell you that everythings going to be okay. You want me to promise that Ill never hurt you. You want me to keep begging you for a shot.”
 I pressed my lips to the corner of her mouth, kissing gently. She whimpered and closed her eyes as her whole body tensed against mine.
“You want me to prove to you that not all guys are lying, cheating scumbags.”
 I kissed her nose lightly.
“You want me to restore your faith in men.”
 I kissed the other corner of her mouth; I could feel her trembling.
“You want me to need you back…” I whispered, my lips brushing against hers. I wasnt going to kiss her though; I wanted her to do that. I wanted her to take down the first brick in that wall that shed built and then Id work on the rest, she just needed to make the first move and take a chance. “Dont you?” I whispered, silently praying for a yes.

Author Spotlight with Rachel Wade

Fear is sabotage’s sweetest weapon.

Kate has no time for meaningless romantic charades, and definitely no time for hot college professors who are full of themselves and smitten with her. Constantly battling eviction notices, tuition she can’t afford, and a sick, dependent mother, the last thing she needs is to be distracted with someone else’s complicated baggage.

When she stumbles into Ryan Campbell’s creative writing class, he is only “Mr. Campbell” to her, until Ryan finds himself captivated by her writing and she is forced to face their mutual attraction. His cocky know-it-all syndrome is enough to send her running in the other direction, and his posse of female admirers and playboy reputation are enough to squander any odds in her favor.

But underneath Ryan’s abrasive facade is something to behold, and she can’t stay away for long. Ryan and Kate must decide who they’re willing to become and fight against their former selves if they want to make things work. That’s if academia, vicious vixens, old skeletons, and their own mastery at self-destruction don’t pummel their efforts first.

A sequel to the Amazon bestselling romance, Preservation, told from Ryan’s point of view.

Old Habits Die Hard.

Ryan Campbell is not only leaving his title of Professor behind to move on to bigger and better things at Simon and Warden Publishing, he’s also become Seattle’s rising literary star. Sitting on the overwhelming cusp of newfound fame, he learns soon enough that being popular has its downside.

Attracted to the buzz surrounding his new career, former lovers begin to creep back into his life, and potential ones emerge with enticing advances. While he works to juggle reserved, yet stressful, wedding plans with Kate and his new public image, he has enough to manage without worrying about Carter and Dean—Kate’s loveable albeit eccentric friends—and their latest shenanigans.

Surrounded by a lifestyle that includes temptation at every turn, Ryan finds himself immersed in a world full of scandal and lies, where his oldest weaknesses thrive and his ghosts return to haunt him. Questioning whether his life with Kate is his best path, he must discover if he’s still capable of being the man he aspired to be when she first became his, or if happily ever after is only an illusion.


 Featuring characters from Love and Relativity.

Carter Montgomery spent most of his life blending in, and he liked it that way. It was always better to be seen, not heard. And while a theatric streak and friendly demeanor might have fooled most people, he knew the truth—he was the shy one. The quiet kid most people forgot about. Some might have considered that a bad thing, but those people all wanted to be in the spotlight.

The only place Carter didn’t mind attention was on stage, with The Hellions. Once content in his comfort zone in Seattle, Washington, he only knew three things: confrontation was to be avoided, keeping the peace was priority, and the moment he lost Kate Parker to Professor Ryan Campbell, he had no clue what to do with his life. Playing gigs, working at Pike Place Market, and watching BBC after the love of his life sailed off into the sunset just wasn’t going to cut it anymore.

Desperate to escape his rut, he takes a cue from Kate and chooses a random place to relocate—a small island across the country, where no one knows his name and memories of unrequited love aren’t found at every turn. Just when he thinks he’s found the perfect place to unwind and sink back into the shadows, in bursts Whitney Sinclair, a saucy firecracker who loves life and refuses to settle for second best. Full of contagious energy, she dares him to be brave, convincing him that it might finally be time to tell the world what he wants.

It might be time to make a declaration.

A Preservation Series Companion Novel

Love, life, and happily ever after? It’s all relative.

Marine biology student Emma Pierce lives in paradise—geographically speaking, anyway. Stranded on Sanibel Island, Florida, she works at a nursing home by day and spends her nights dodging the island's infamous bad boy, Jackson Taylor, at her favorite karaoke bar. Trying to heal from the loss of her sister and a failed relationship she rerouted her life for, she's ready to graduate and finally leave Florida behind.

When a run-in with Jackson and his rowdy crew goes sour at the bar one night, sparks fly and irreversible damage is done. It’s no secret that Jackson loves to get underneath her skin, but this time he's gone too far. Now all he wants is to earn her forgiveness before she's gone for good, but their ideas of closure—and the future—are enough to keep them worlds apart.

This is a stand-alone title but coordinates with The Preservation Series

 *Contains sexually explicit content and mature subject matter, including language and elements of abuse.*

A gritty New Adult drama about a young woman’s self-destructive quest to find purpose, self-worth, and love in a broken world.

My name is Elise Duchamp. I’m twenty-three years old and I’m known as the town whore.

No, not the kind who exchanges sexual favors for money. The other kind. The kind who gives it all away for free, whenever and however she likes. I am that girl. The one everyone whispers about and the one none of the girls seem to like, because all of their boyfriends either want to sleep with me or already have. Promiscuity is my thing—the kind that slowly, violently turns my insides black, but gives me something I need.

All things considered, I’m not completely reckless. I’m safe, and contrary to popular opinion, I do have a heart. I live in a world of careless choices, and with those choices come careless people. I cannot judge them, because I am one of them. I too bow down to the altar of the self-serving. I am not a good friend. I am not and never could be anyone’s girlfriend. I’m convinced any goodness in me shriveled up and died long ago.

But I am a replacement. That is something I know how to be, and this is a story of the lengths I’d go to in order to keep it that way.

Imperfect Love Tour

When she arrived home, Lauren checked her phone. No text from Paul. Opening the refrigerator, she decided to try to resurrect the dinner from last night, even if she had to eat it by herself. No need to waste a perfectly good meal.

She reheated the steak and the potatoes, and just as she was setting them on the table, Paul opened the front door and came in with a bottle of champagne in his hands.

“Guess what?”

“I don’t know.” Lauren was so happy to see him, she didn’t care what he had to say. She’d finally be able to tell him.

“We won the Jackson case.” He hugged her and picked her up off her feet.

She laughed. “That’s great.”

He set her down. “I’ll say. It was a huge case too. And because of my investigations into the Durhams, we won the case.” He grinned, his hazel eyes sparkling.

“I’m proud of you.”

He opened the cupboard and found two wine glasses. “Let’s celebrate.”
Lauren bit her lip. “I want to celebrate, but I think I’ll skip the champagne.”

“Huh? Why?” He gave her a perplexed expression.

Lauren grabbed her purse and pulled out the baby bottle. Without a word, she handed it to Paul.

“What’s this?” With a bewildered look, he read the card attached to the bottle.

“Wait… what?”

Lauren nodded, her smile so wide it hurt her cheeks.

“We’re going to… you’re… we’re having a…” The happy questions hung over them like a bouquet of fresh roses.

“Yes. We are.” Her heart beat with rapture.

Paul collapsed onto a kitchen chair and raked his hand through his hair. “Wow. I don’t know what to say.”

Ignoring his body language, Lauren said, “That you’re as thrilled as I am.”

“Well, yeah. Of course.” He sat back against the chair, looking as if he’d lost all the air in his lungs.


“I didn’t expect this. I’m surprised.” He gazed at her, the baby bottle rotating in his hands.

“Surprised in a good way, right?” She held her breath, waiting for his answer.

“It’s just that I’m so busy at work trying to open this new office and… but this is great news.” He stood and pulled her in for a hug.



“You’re sure?”

He looked at her, “Yeah.”

Lauren tried not to let her disappointment in his reaction show. What had she expected, exactly? Cartwheels? Hollering at the top of his lungs? Dancing? Singing? Probably not, but at least a little more enthusiasm.

“Lauren?” Paul said.

“We’ve been trying for a while, and it’s finally happened. I wanted you to be—”

“I’m totally happy about it.” He embraced her again. Maybe she’d expected too much from him.

“I’m not sure of the date. I’ll call tomorrow and make an appointment to see the doctor. Can you come with me?” She wanted Paul to be there with her every step of the way. This was their baby, and she wanted them to share everything together.

He stepped back from her. “I really want to, but we’ll have to see what my schedule is like.”

She nodded, trying to keep her emotions in check. “Okay. I’ll let you know.”
