Together they find a special love—can it survive the threat stalking her?

Some small towns grow really good looking men! This is the case with the four Chase brothers. The home grown hotties are on the wishlist of every single woman in town and Maggie Wright is no exception.

Maggie has finally had it with the men she’s been dating but a spilled plate of chili cheese fries drops Shane Chase right into her lap. The sheriff is hot stuff but was burned by a former fiancée and is quite happy to play the field.

After Shane’s skittishness sends him out the door, Maggie realizes that Kyle Chase has had his eye on her from the start. Now that Shane has messed up, Kyle has no intention of letting anything stop him from wooing her right into his bed.

Despite Maggie’s happiness and growing love with Kyle, a dark shadow threatens everything—she’s got a stalker and he’s not happy at all. In the end, Maggie will need her wits, strength and the love of her man to get her out alive.

Warning: this title contains the following: explicit sex, graphic language, and some violent situations.

Note: I received my free copy of Giving Chase in June 2011. Giving Chase has been on Mt. TBR for 5 years and 1 month so it qualifies for my Mt. TBR challenge AND my Kindle Freebie Freakout Challenge!!

Giving Chase was pretty “meh” for me. I didn’t care for a lot of the plot lines but I’m reading this series to prep myself for the series after (OCD, thy name is MrsJ).

To be honest, there’s a lot I didn’t care for in Giving Chase: I HATED the whole brother thing, really hated. I felt…uncomfortable knowing that Maggie and Shane swapped spit and then Kyle entering the picture. It…just wasn’t ok with me.

The stalking situation…could have been worse but I disliked Maggie being placed in that predicament.

All in all, it’s an ok read but not my cup of tea. There are three books in this series, I think. I’m already reading (and disliking) book #2 but we’ll see.
