What a pleasant surprise! This is my first book that I've read from his author and I'm sure it won't be the last. When I saw the blurb for the story I thought 'That sounds like an interesting story, why not give it a go.', and that's exactly what I did. So happy how the story turned out. There is basically almost no drama and what little it is it's done in a very good way with great emotional background. Also, I loved that the heroine, Trish, and the hero, Boone, didn't have moments of doubt abo

This wasn’t your typical sassy girl meets rock star for so many reasons.

Boone Stryker isn’t your typical rock star. Sure, on the outside he’s sold as the bad ass rocker who has a new woman every night but in reality he is quite serious. He’s serious about the people in his life, he’s serious about the new project he took on and he’s serious about loving and helping those closest to him. In actual fact the man doesn’t possess a cocky bone in his body.

CHASED BY LOVE is the third book in The Ryders series and this is Trish’s story. Trish is an actress who doesn’t take her job for granted. When she lands a role that will put her opposite an A-list rock star, Trish wonders if this movie will make or break her career because although the movie will do well if Boone Stryker is a part of it, everyone is looking at him to see if he can actually act.

Unfortunately, there’s added pressure for the rock star Boone because in addition to this major m

Fall in love with Boone and Trisha. Rock star. Actress. Romance. Crash and burn? Not exactly. I did not get the typical rock star/actress romance. Don't get me wrong Boone was rock star that had the typical past of a rock star. But this point in his life something has to give and a change was on the horizon for him. Trisha was an actress that took her job seriously and love it that way. She has the chance to make her crafts shine and enjoy the interaction of a rock star along the way. She just w ...more

**sigh** I really should read more Melissa Foster books because I do so enjoy them so much. But then I think ... if I binge, then I'd have to wait for her to write a new one LOL This way, there's always one I can go back to and read as long as I pace them out. She's a great go-to author because she hits the mark almost every time (and I say almost because I haven't read every single book of hers so I can't really say always). He characters make sense. Their drive makes sense. Their journey makes ...more

Josie's Review 4.5 STARS

I absolutely love that this author has the ability to write a story with real life issues that keep me coming back for more. In Chased by Love Melissa added just the right amount of romance, drama and emotions that it was totally engrossing. Once I picked up this book I wanted to know a lot more about Trish and Boone. I honestly couldn’t get enough of these two. The story was written very well and the characters and relationship between them all came naturally. Most impor

Actress Trish Ryder is not a diva, but she does take her job seriously, and has no time for those who don't. Her latest project is a major role in a new movie with America's hottest rock star, Boone Stryker, which has the makings for an oscar nod. She was super excited to work with him, but when he starts slacking, her opinion quickly changes. Trish decides to confront him, but instead she sees his wild lifestyle of sex, booze, and women, up close and isn't impressed. The director finally gets f ...more

Chased By Love was a very enjoyable read. I truly loved this book. I got swept up in the story and the characters. Even though this is part of a series, this is the first book in that series that I have read and I don’t feel like I missed anything.

The night I started this book, I couldn’t put it down. Trish and Boone were intriguing and the sizzle between them was excellent. There were a couple of scenes that gave my stomach a tingle just reading them. Eventually, the need for sleep forced me to stop reading.

When I picked back up the next day I never regained that same level of enthusiasm. I still enjoyed the book but it began to drag. Once Trish and Boone realize they care for each other, they are solid and nothing seriously threatens th

Chased by Love is the first book I have read in the Ryder's series and i found it enjoyable. At first I wasn't sure what to expect because a rock star and an address are getting together but while reading I was actually very pleased with how the story came together.

Trisha came off as bitchy at times especially where Boone was concerned but she was down to earth, loved her family and an overall good heroine for this book. I wasn't sure what Boone would be like but he was nothing like I expected.

Boone Stryker and Trish Ryder are made for each other. Their romance was slowly developed which made for a strong foundation. Boone is a rock star, and nothing what you would expect. Trish is an actress with a strong dedication to her job. This book takes unexpected turns. One of the best parts of the book is how you don't just get to know the main characters. You really get to know their families. This is another great read from Melissa Foster. Very emotional, raw and touching.

If you want a swoony hero, Boone Stryker is the hero for you! He was perfect! A bad boy rock star who loves his family deeply and would do anything to protect them. And when he fell for Trish, he added her to that list.

This was a great read that showed two very close knit families. I loved it!

“She made him want to escape the chaos in his own life.”

“Passion lives inside you, Boone. even when you try to hide it, it’s lying in wait. All you have to do is set it free.”

“Being with you is like playing with fire. You push me like no one else ever has. I should run, but I can’t imagine a single day without seeing you.”

One of the things I love about Melissa Foster is that she never fails to deliver. I can always count on her for sweet, swoon worthy romance, alpha males and low drama. And Chas

I was given a copy of this book to read and review honestly for Wicked Reads.

Hollywood glitz and bad boy rockers are two of my guilty pleasure so I expected to enjoy this story more than I did. For me, the movie star aspect of this story didn’t really ring true and the bad boy rocker felt more than a little bit whiny. I enjoyed the small town that Bodie and Trish film in and I enjoyed some of the movie making details.

Trish was a little bit too perfect for me. Too nice, too pretty, too easy goi

I’m just gonna come out and say it. I am officially in love with Melissa Foster. Her books, they just sweep me away, until the only thing I can think about are the characters that just come to life when I’m reading her stories.

Let’s start with Trish. The hot actress with a crush on her philandering groupie-loving co-star. Well, that’s what she assumes anyways. She’s smart, a hell of an actress, and beautiful to boot. I wouldn’t mind trading places with her anytime

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~

Once again Ms Foster has written a totally adorable story. I haven't met a bad one yet, and don't expect to, ever! Do make sure that you give yourself a good long run at this, as it is very difficult to stop turning the pages.

There is the potential for angst, and all manner of uncomfortable truths given the background of these leads, but instead we get the delicious romance that Ms Foster is so good at writing. Take int

This was an excellent story and I didn’t want it to end!

Trish Ryder is an actress who takes her roles very seriously, always practicing and putting her all into her role. Her newest movie “love interest” is the rockstar she’s had a crush on for years, Boone Stryker. Trish is so excited to work with Boone but once production begins and Boone is less than helpful with the move Trish starts to worry that Boone isn’t the man she’d dreamt him as. Then the director demands that Trish and Boone

Trish dreams of being taken seriously as an actress. Boone devotes himself to living the life of a rock star. Having nothing in common except for creative aspirations, there was no reason for them to meet. Until a major role in a movie has their paths crossing and the sparks flying. Chased By Love can be interpreted in a number of ways. My personal interpretation was of people who loved the ability to escape reality and masquerade in a world of their own creation. What each has to learn is how t ...more

This isn't my favorite Melissa Foster but she still delivers. The rock star and actress partnering were not as relatable as some of her other pairings but I appreciate the fantasy element and the attempted normalcy of some of their personal problems. Boone and Trish are a hot couple with loads of chemistry but Boone is hiding turmoil in his personal life that is distracting him from his movie role and Trish has to get them on board for this film. Every kiss sizzles and there is plenty of heat. F ...more

Trish Ryder and Boone Stryker's story has begun as you thought it should be. She is an actress, he is a rock singer who wants to be an actor and in the beginning of the book is supposed to be surrounded by groupies and partying everywhere. But, as we unfold this book nothing turns out as predicted since Bonne has a secret agenda that we he protects dearly and is a totally different person that we once thought.

Chased by Love is the third book in The Ryders series. It can be read as a standalone. I’ve been binge reading (& listening to) Melissa Foster books completely out of order with no problem. But I can say that after reading Claimed by Love I was really looking forward to Trisha’s story.

Trisha Ryder is an actress who is serious about working hard and advancing her career. When she is cast opposite rock star Boone Stryker, she is worried that his apparent lack of work ethic will affect her goals.

Chased by Love is Trish Ryer and Boone Stryker's story. This is the third book in the Ryder's Series and an off shoot of the Love in Bloom series! This book can easily be read as a standalone, but you seriously will not want to miss the previous titles, so why start with book three.

I am a huge fan of the Love in Bloom series, and have come to love the Ryder family, with each additional sibling you feel as if you are reading and experiencing the story of friends rather than fictional characters.

"There's a rule in acting you might not be aware of. Never, ever fall for your co-star."
"Considering I've never fallen for a woman in my life, I think we're in the clear."

Goodness me!!!

This series just keeps getting better!!

I'm so in love with these Ryder siblings, and I was so excited to read Trish's story!
Being in a family with five brothers and being a high profile actress, I adored her strong will and take hold attitude.
But she didn't stand a chance when it came to working with Boone Stryke

Trish Ryder is a star! Movie star that is, and she is a professional! So when the bad boy rockstar Boone Stryker was cast as her co-star, she had preconceived ideas about what he was like; so when he has a party at his trailer the night before a big shoot Trisha lets him have it. But when Boone struggles with a key scene the next day, the last thing Trish expects, is for the director to send both Trish and Boone to his farm house in Hurricane, West Virginia for 10 days!!

Melissa Foster brings us two characters this time that seem to be worlds apart in age and responses to life--but together they may just find they have more in common than they think.

We've met Trish through the years as one of the Ryder siblings. She's an actress who believes in her career, believes in her ability...and will not let some new-comer ruin her chances. She has a strong family backing, and watching as her brothers and brothers-in-law go protective on her was so fun to watch.
