Everyone says opposites attract. And they must be right, because there’s no logical reason why I’m so drawn to Colin Fitzgerald. I don’t usually go for tattoo-covered, video-gaming, hockey-playing nerd-jocks who think I’m flighty and superficial. His narrow view of me is the first strike against him. It doesn’t help that he’s buddy-buddy with my brother.
And that his best friend has a crush on me.
And that I just moved in with them.
Oh, did I not mention we’re roommates?
I suppose it doesn’t matter. Fitzy has made it clear he’s not interested in me, even though the sparks between us are liable to burn our house down. I’m not the kind of girl who chases after a man, though, and I’m not about to start. I’ve got my hands full dealing with a new school, a sleazy professor, and an uncertain future. So if my sexy brooding roomie wises up and realizes what he’s missing?
He knows where to find me.
The Chase is a fun, light, sexy read! If you were a fan of Kennedy’s previous Briar boys, you will gobble this book up! Cameos from the Briar U graduates suck you in to the story, but its these new characters that really keep you reading.
Summer is Dean’s sister and a bit of a hot mess at times. She has just been kicked out of Brown and her dad had to pull strings to get her into Briar. Her new sorority sisters won’t let her live in the house and now she is homeless. Dean’s old roommates are looking for someone to take Dean’s room though….Summer ends up moving in with her crush, Fitzy. Its hard to dislike Summer, which I wasn’t expecting. She is gorgeous, rich, and spoiled-she seems like an easy girl to hate. However, you realize that she is also struggling with life. She has a learning disability and feels inferior to her uber successful family.
Fitzy is very attracted to Summer but she is Dean’s sister and thats a big bro code violation. He also can’t understand why a girl like her would be interested in a guy like him. They have nothing in common-he is a self proclaimed nerd.
These two dance around their feelings resulting in some funny, heartfelt, and real events. Like I said, you can’t hate Summer, and the longer I read the book, the more I wanted to step in and protect her! Fitzy is perfect for her because he is so laid back. He can understand her in a way the rest of the people in her life don’t and its very sweet. Overall, The Chase is the perfect read if you want light and sexy!
