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 AuthorMy 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….
