3 stars for Giving Chase aka Cinderella Story

Giving Chase is the first book in the Chase Brothers series by Lauren Dane.
This first book is about Kyle Chase and Maggie.

I really liked the love story between the two. Kyle is very sure of himself and knows what he wants, which I found quite refreshing in comparison to all these male characters, that fight against commitment and don't want to give in to love.
Maggie is an ok character. She is pretty insecure and has a more than problematic relationship with her mother and sister.
There were some things that I didn't like too much:

1.) all the women in Petal(town) are kind of obesessed with the Chases and persistently flirt with Kyle, while Maggie sits right next to him
2.) there are a bunch of cliches: pretty = blonde etc. HELLO? nobody thinks that anymore
3.) the prelude with Shane wasn't necessary, just makes Maggie seem fickle
4.) the story with her mother was seriously copied from Cinderella

STILL I enjoyed the story and the book. It was a nice love story. Not too much romance, not too much steamy scenes, but a nice balance. And of course the mega hotness of the guys is more than satisfying:)
Currently I'm reading Taking Chase :)
