Él siempre conseguía todo lo que deseaba... Había algo muy apetecible y Chase sabía que no figuraba en la carta de su restaurante. Su nueva vecina, Jessica, era tan deliciosa como los postres que preparaba. Tanto, que a Chase le resultaba difícil concentrarse en algo que no fuera la curva de sus labios. Jessica no podía negar el deseo que se respiraba en el aire cada vez q ...more

(read as e-book, but it looks like a book version will be re-published in 2011.)


This is part of the highly enjoyable and extensive Westmoreland series. Jessica Claiborne left her law career to follow her true passion of cooking. She moves from California to Georgia to open a chocolate shop and to hopefully clear the name of her deceased grandfather. He was accused years earlier by his best friend, a restaurateur, of stealing secret family recipes and selling them to a competitor. Jessica has no

Another winner for the Westmoreland's. Chase Westmoreland is not happy with the owner of Delicious Cravings because of the chaos it's creating in the parking situation for his restaurant, Chase's Place. Jessica Claiborne has apologized to the other businesses, and they've been understanding. Chase wasn't when she came to apologize and offer him some of the treats she makes.
Chase takes Jessica a peace offering, a generous special of the day from his restaurant. The Sparks between them every time

Out of all the women in this series, I believe I dislike Jessica the most. Something about her just didn't sit right with me.

Chase was trying so desperately not to give his heart away that he did not see Jessica coming in to put his heart on lock. Jessica was not looking for a relationship when she moved to Atlanta but to vindicate her grandfather's name. However, Love has a mind of its own.

Brenda Jackson took no prisoners in spinning this love tale with a dash of mystery imposed. The book read like poetry and as always the love scenes tastefully written but still have you crossing your legs while reading. Loved it!
Jennifer Schultheis
The Chase is On is one of my favorite Westmoreland books. There is just something about a man who knows his way around a kitchen, that gets to me. This book is about finding out the truth and writing some wrongs. The characters were lovable and engaging. The storyline kept me on the edge of my seat, and the romance, made my heart melt. Once again, Brenda Jackson always provides an excellent read, that will leave a lasting impression on you.

I thought Chase was going to be the smooth talking man just waiting to fall in love. He was but he did come off the top with all the wrong words ticking Jessica off. When he realized what he'd done he was quick to put it right but she was doing a little too much. She should've told him what she was up to and it would've saved them a ton of mess. In the end it was really good.

Chase Westmoreland is FINALLY burnt by the flames of love. The instant and HEATED attraction between Jessica and Chase sets the pages of this novel on fire. I enjoy the camaraderie and loving bond the Westmorelands continuously displays towards one another throughout this series. Mrs. Jackson delivers another quick, spicy, romantic treat.
Lady Raven RAVE!
