great book and great characters
Chased (The Chase Brothers, Book 3) Paperback - September 1, 2007 - Lauren Dane

Liv was being picked up by her friend Cassie and Maggie to go to Polly and Edwards fortieth wedding anniversary party. Liv had been crying and told her friends Brody had cheated on her with Lyndsay Cole, Liv had walked in on them in Brody’s apartment as she had got off work early and had brought brody some dinner. All Liv wanted was someone she could trust  someone she could come home to at the end of the day and share her life with. She wanted to be in love, and get married and have kids not tomorrow but someday. Marc claimed a dance with Liv at his parents party and he thought about how good it felt to have her body next to his. Marc had wanted to kiss liv pretty badly but his father cut in. Marc did kiss Liv at the Founder Day’s picnic even if she was there on a a date with another man.Liv told Marc she wanted someone who was looking for toward marriage and permanency. Marc dated everyone he could think of for the next month but none of them got Liv out of his thoughts finally Marc called Liv. No man had ever made Liv speechless but Marc did and he pushed every button and Liv wasn’t sure why or how. Marc had set out to woo her and he was.

I loved this book, it was a quick fun romantic read. I now have a new romantic read to put in my favorites group. I loved how sweet Liv was and I loved her and Marc together. I also loved how Marc’s family had already accepted and loved Liv when she had dated Marc’s older brother Matt but it hadn’t worked Matt hadn’t been ready to settle down but the remained the best of friends. When Matt saw Marc really wanted a long term relationship with Liv he was all for it. I felt so bad when Liv saw Marc with his ex. I felt like I was there with everyone and that is special when an author can transport you inside her story. I loved how Marc showed up in Atlanta and made Liv agree to spend two days and face herself and he also faced himself and were totally honest with each other and opened to each other. Just an overall great book and I happily I could happily find nothing to criticize. I love the characters and the ins and outs and I highly recommend.

Release Week Review! Torn (Whiskey Sharp #3) Laure Dane!
Torn - Lauren Dane

 

 

Sometimes what you find isn’t what you were searching for

Beau Petty has been searching his whole life. Searching for a place that fills all the empty spaces in him. Searching for a way to tame the restlessness. Searching for answers to the secret he’s never stopped trying to solve. What he wasn’t searching for was a woman to claim all of him, but when Cora Silvera walks back into his life, he’s ready to search out all the ways he can make her his.

 

Cora has spent her life as the family nurturer, taking care of others. But now she’s ready to pass that job on to someone else. It’s time to make some changes and live for herself. It’s in that moment that her former teenage crush reappears and the draw and the heat of their instant connection is like nothing either of them has experienced. He craves being around her. She accepts him, dark corners and all.

Beau thinks Cora’s had enough drama in her life. He wants to protect her from the secrets of his past, even if it means holding back the last pieces of himself. But Cora is no pushover and she means to claim all those pieces.

 

 


I finally returned to Whiskey Sharp and the wonderful characters that surround the place. On this visit, Beau and Cora who are two very strong and vibrant characters, renew their acquaintance and find themselves embarking on a delightful romance. The relationship is strong and full of flirty fun, especially since Cora is a feisty woman full of exuberance, and the chemistry and passion between these two are full of electricity and heat. That’s not to say that the relationship is all fun and games because there are past personal issues involving family that really add depth to the story and a more fulfilling perception of these characters and their personalities.

 

The story is fast paced and cover quite a bit of time so while the relationship starts off quick readers get the full effect of the workings of their relationship and how it progressed to the happily ever after with lots of witty and fun events that really makes the reader feel as if they are there with Beau, Cora and all their friends. There was never a dull or slow moment to be found and readers get enjoy a romance that is heartwarming, fun, sexy and spontaneous.

 

For me personally, I have to say that Torn is being added to my favorites list, I really enjoyed Cora and Beau’s story as it made me smile a lot throughout the story and I felt as if I really got to know them and what their lives were like, especially the family dynamic that added such ‘drama’ and to the story and in Beau’s case, tugged at the heart. Of course, it is not surprising, that I loved the story as Lauren Dane is the author of this charming series full of character, romance, and friendship that make readers feel good as they read it.

Torn
Torn - Lauren Dane Torn intrigued me right away because it was a little like a second chance in that the characters knew each other before, but not totally a second chance since they weren't dating before. Its a low angst story which I adore; however, I think it was a little slow because not much happens. Its more of a chronicle of their relationship; again, I appreciated the low angst since both of them have had enough angst in their past, but readers may find this a bit of a slow pace.

Cora and Beau are total #relationshipgoals! They are truly devoted to making each other happy. It was such a pleasant read to see a more mature relationship as opposed to the drama-llama types with miscommunications and manufactured problems. Bottom line, while this might be a slow plot for those who love the angst, its perfect for those who like to see a couple work together on real life issues. Torn will appeal to readers who are sick of new adult relationships that are fraught with immature rubbish.

While this is book 3 of the series, you can read them as stand alones. I haven't read the previous books and it didn't affect my enjoyment at all!

Giving Chase By Lauren Dane 99 cents!
Giving Chase - Lauren Dane

When landscaper Kyle Chase takes notice of Maggie Wright, all of Petal, Georgia, wonders what the quiet schoolteacher is hiding underneath her tight bun and boring blouses. Even Maggie doesn’t quite get it, but after a failed relationship and a disastrous attempt to get back out there, she’s no match against the famous Chase charm, and Kyle has it in spades. 

Kyle wants Maggie in his life—and in his bed—and he doesn’t mind getting down and dirty to prove it. For years he’s avoided the kind of trouble that comes with “good girls” like her, but Maggie’s the best trouble he’s ever been in. He craves more of it. And more of her.

But even as their love grows into thoughts of forever, a hidden danger from Maggie’s past threatens to tear them apart. And when Maggie suddenly disappears, Kyle must put his faith in his family and race to save the love of his life before he loses her forever.

The Chase is on. One small town. Four hot brothers. And enough heat to burn up anyone who dares to get close. Don’t miss the next books: Taking ChaseChased and Making Chase.

Early Release Review! Giving Chase (The Chase Brothers #1) Lauren Dane!
Taking Chase - Lauren Dane

 

 

Previously published; newly refreshed by author

***

 

The Chase boys. Ridiculously hot and notoriously single.

 

Sheriff Shane Chase is drawn to the new girl in town from the moment he lays eyes on her. Not only is she gorgeous, but years on the job have taught him to know when someone is hiding something. And Cassie Gambol is hiding something big. He’s willing to take it slow to find out her secrets, no matter how much he burns to make her his.

 

Cassie Gambol needs a fresh start, and she gets it by reinventing herself in the small town of Petal, Georgia—a far cry from her life as a surgeon back in LA. A new romance is the last thing on Cassie’s mind, but the impossibly hot town sheriff has her reconsidering her priorities.

 

But when Cassie and Shane come face-to-face with the reason Cassie’s on the run, only her determination and his instincts can keep her safe from the past—and keep their future from ending before it can even begin.

 

 

The notorious Sherriff of Petal, Georgia has taken a fall and much to his dismay has to work pretty hard to win the girl of his dreams’ heart in this heartfelt romance.

 

Shane and Cassie are two very strong and captivating characters whose romance is anything but smooth, there is lot of ups and downs due to past issues and miscommunication that the story is a kind of emotional rollercoaster.  Readers can help but become caught up in their story as Shane works hard to overcome his own issues and find a way to help Cassie overcome hers and let me tell you this story tugs at heartstrings and actually had me crying at a couple of points, which I must say is unusual for me. But since, Lauren Dane creates characters that are easily connected to, I shouldn’t be surprised that I had such a connection to Shane and Cassie.

 

And if their emotional issues weren’t enough to keep readers enthralled, this story has readers holding their breath in suspense when Cassie’s past comes calling and placing her in danger when adds quite an exciting edge to this romance.  Lauren Dane makes it easy to picture each and every scene as it happens which just makes the connection with the characters that much more vivid.

 

I have to tell you Shane caught my attention in the first book, Giving Chase, when he made a bit of a jerk of himself so I highly anticipating the release of Taking Chase to find out how he fared when came to matters of his heart and I was in no way disappointed as I was completely enthralled with his and Cassie’s book from start to finish, now I just have to wait for Chased and find out which brother will fall next.

 

 

Taking Chase is the 2nd book in the Chase Brothers series which includes:

 

  • Giving Chase
  • Taking Chase
