Chase Blog Tour

I am so happy I got asked to participate in this tour. I loved this book and enjoyed every minute of it. SO let's get started and meet the authors of Chase.

I drink too much, Swear too much, and Read too much. I don't have a filter, and I tend to speak before I think. 

I live in Alberta Canada. 
I have an amazing pain in the ass husband, and two little girls. 
I have a huge love of reading. I've been a beta reader, and helped a few authors edit. On top of those things, because I don't plan to give them up, I figured it was time to take the leap and write a book. 
It wouldn't be possible without my girl Chantal!!! 

I'm 26 and a mother of three beautiful little boys. 

I've been happily married since I was 18 and live in Western Australia. 
I love to read and write; I'm a dreamer. 
Chase is my debut novel, written with my friend Dawn. 

Stalker Links:

Moving in with a guy you only met once? Stupid. 

But for student Layla Crawford, this was reality. 
Chase Jackson is a renowned playboy and self professed commitment phobe, that is until he meets Layla. 
Blinded by his intensity to have her, Chase will stop at nothing to make her his. 
With a jealous ex and old conquests repeatedly making appearances, Chase' s skeletons come out of the closet one by one, each one pushing Layla further and further away. 
Layla is determined to keep her distance. Chase now has to convince the only woman he has ever wanted that he is worth the gamble.

Guest Post/Diary entry from Layla:
Layla: Chase and I had an instant connection, I can't even explain it. I guess romantics might call it love at first sight. I don't know what it was exactly. Instant chemistry. A spark. For me, Chase was it. Imperfections and all. Chase shows me a side of him not many people will ever see. He is loving, generous and kind. He is everything I have ever wanted in a man. An alpha male, a leader, a protector and a provider. My initial thoughts of chase was that he was hot and intense, and I wanted him, anyway I could get him. Because even one taste would be better than nothing.

My Review:
I loved Chase and his brothers so much! I desperately NEED Kade’s story now so I can see what happens next with these Totally Sexy Brothers.

Layla is looking for an apartment close to college and she has already looked at a few when she goes and sees a room for rent in Kade and James house. She agrees to move in with them and the landlord even though she hasn’t met him. Layla and the brothers hit it off instantly and become great friends. One night out with her best friend Nikki, she meets Chase and they have a strong connection. Chase asks to take Layla home but she ends up falling asleep in his car so he takes her to his house. She wakes up the next morning to go home and when she walks out of his room she sees that it’s her house. She is completely mortified by this and runs to her room. But she can’t deny the feelings she has for Chase. Chase talks Layla into taking a chance on him and she agrees. But his playboy ways start coming up constantly and Layla struggles to handle his past especially when his past keeps getting shoved in her face. Can Layla look past all the secrets, and playboy ways to keep the man she is in love with?

As I stated in the beginning I love Chase and his brothers Kade and James so much. Never have I been so drawn to three men in a book and wanted to trade places with a character so badly. I can’t even begin to pick which brother I love more. Layla is one lucky girl to have all three of them in her corner. I can’t remember the last time I wanted to reach into a book and shake or slap a character(s) so bad. And I can’t tell you why without giving you spoilers but trust me when I say this is an emotional roller coaster ride. One minute I am laughing, the next I am so infuriated, then I want to cry. But through it all Chase grabbed my heart with his fight to do anything and everything to keep the one woman who has warmed his heart and changed his life for the better. 5/5 Bloody Fangs

Teaser from book 2 Kade:

“Hey Kade,” I mumble, as I walk into Layla’s house. Kade narrows his eyes on me silently. He is leaning against the kitchen table, bare-chested, pouring himself a cup of coffee. He looks edible.

I clear my throat. I feel so vulnerable right now, and it is taking all of my will power not to run. But I want Kade, I want this. So I need to suck it up.
“Layla’s not here,” He deadpans.
I know, actually I wanted to talk to you,” I tell him in a soft voice.
He raises his eyebrows.
“I’m sorry I’ve been avoiding you, the truth is…” I trail off. The truth is after a week of thinking, running, and hiding; I have decided I want this man. I want to take a chance on him. He’s not Ben. And I’m sick of being a coward.
“The truth is, I’m scared Kade. But I want to try, I want you,” I say as I walk up to him and wrap my arms around his waist.
“If you still want me?” I whisper in a soft voice.
His arms tighten around me. “Fuck, Nikki,” he says in a hoarse voice.
“Kade, come back to bed,” A high pitched voice coos from behind us. Kade’s fingers dig into my skin, and his whole body stiffens.
I turn and see a half-naked woman walk out, only in her bra and panties. It takes me a moment to realize exactly what’s going on. It’s not like I expected Kade to be celibate, but, well fuck. I don’t know what I thought, it just hurts.
“You need to leave Kelly,” Kade demands.
“Don’t bother,” I say, my voice small. I push away from Kade and walk to the front door.
“Nikki, wait!” he calls out, storming after me.
“Kade!” Kelly whines, grabbing onto his arm. I see Kade glance down at the woman in disgust.
Kade lifts his head, our eyes connecting.
His eyes are pleading.
Mine are vacant.
When our eyes lock, I see him flinch. Fuck him.
I open the door, and walk out.
I know I shouldn’t be upset. We had no commitment, and he made me no promises. But still, it hurts. Just when I was about to let him in, something like this happens. Maybe it was a sign.
When I get home my phone starts ringing. It’s Kade. I hit ignore.
Then I get the text messages.
K- Answer your phone
K – Nikki, if you don’t answer I will show up.
N- Stop calling me, stop texting me. I was stupid to think we could try this.
K- We can try this Nikki. What did you think would happen when you kept avoiding me?
N – I’m going to bed.
K- Tomorrow. We will talk. Goodnight.
I don’t bother replying.

WOW that teaser has me wanting book 2 even more now! Thank you to Chantal and Dawn for letting me review your book and Thank you to the ladies of TSK TSK What to Read for letting me participate in this tour. Thank you for stopping by my blog and Don't forget to enter the awesome giveaway.
