4 Chasing Stars.

When Roxy, New York resident struggling to make it in the acting world, finds herself with no money and no acting prospects, she does what every girl in her situation does: finds her job. In her particular case, the job is doing singing telegrams. Her first job is to dress as a giant pink bunny and go to one guy’s home singing an ode to his penis, hired by one of his one-night-stands.
When Louis sees one gorgeous girls dressed as a bunny at his front door he immediately becomes i

I was gonna try and finish this but this was a waste of my time. My eyes hurt from all the eye rolling! I'm a huge TB fan but I'm sorry this was her worse book to date.

Hero: one kiss turned him from manwhore to wanting more
Heroine: didn't like her (at all)
Romance: insta lust
Banter: felt forced
Humour: tried too hard to be funny
Side characters: annoying (all of them)

Phew glad I got that out my system. Now moving on...

Roxy has hit rough times and is the cliché starving actress struggling to land a job. In order to make ends meet, she takes a job singing telegrams, but never thought she’d have to sing a song in honor of a man’s, ahem, manliness, in a bunny suit, no less! No, that’s not humiliating at all…

When Louis opens the door and sees a hot bunny on his doorstep, he at first thinks he’s hallucinating. He gets a song of praise for his endowments, and you’d think that make a guy happy, but not so much when i

People, you want this book.

Trust me.

It's sexy (as per the Tessa usual), but also freaking hilarious. The voice and characters are spot on. I loved every second.
Well, I'm finished with the book, & I have to be honest with you all: I did NOT like it.

It was just one cliché after another.... Furthermore, I feel as if I'm suffering from a major case of whiplash. The reader gets jerked back & forth throughout the entire book— the heroine wants the hero, then she cuts him off, then she wants him again, then she cuts him off again. THIS REPETITIVE & TEDIOUS CYCLE CONTINUES FOR 99% OF THE BOOK. It would have been nice if the author had mixed things up a bit, b

Signs I lost interest in this book:

Skim through steamy scenes
I don’t care for HEA or whatever. *shrug*

Roxy : “I’ve had to work harder to do it on my own. I want to succeed on my own, without any help. And I’m going to.”
“I told you how important it was to do this on my own, and I thought you understood that. Me. You took that goal away from me.”

On the surface, it did sound like she was very independent. But her characterization came across as a woman of believing the worse of other peopl

Meh. But even meh books by Tessa Bailey are incredibly fun to read.

Those two are awful together and I cannot see their relationship surviving a year. They are both incapable of using their words in a way that seems excessive even for a romance novel - a genre where nobody ever uses their words (I am obviously exaggerating).

I hate the heroine. Seriously, hate that annoying female. She ruined the book for me and thus I'm DNF-ing it. I can't continue reading about her. She is super super super whiney and non-stop complaining. And I'm tired of hearing about how hot she thinks she is and that her body is perfection. The hero is ok, but I'm starting to hate him due to the fact that he didn't throw the heroine down a flight of steps. If he did that, I'd like him a lot.

He dragged a hand through his unkempt black hair. “Am I still drunk, or are you dressed like a rabbit?”
His voice was rough from sleep. Probably not his usual voice. That had to be the reason her tummy did a backflip. “I’m dressed like a rabbit.”
“Okay.” He tilted his head. “Should I be drunk for this?”
“If anyone should be drunk for this, it’s me.”

And that is our meet cute. And what a funny scene it was. Roxy is a struggling actress, and in order to procure some extra money, she takes a job a

This book and I pretty much hit it off right from the very first page. Chase Me has the right amount of charm, humor and banter--not too mention sizzling chemistry--between the main characters that I just knew right from reading that very first page, I was in love.

Unfortunately, that love that I was starting to feel was short-lived. The female protagonist, Roxy, kept going in circles regarding her feelings toward the guy, Louis, that it was enough to make a woman go mad with dizzines
I finished it so I will rate: 0STAR. I will not waste my time why I" disappointing in this book, I'll just say this doesn't look like TB wrote it. I don't think I ever told readers to not read a book but with this one, I just can't recommend, AT ALL. If anyone wants to read a book by her, read the LINE OF DUTY series.

A light-hearted new adult from Tessa Bailey. The hero is much less intense than her normal hero, yet still dirty in the bedroom. The heroine and her roommates made me laugh - great chemistry between them.

Overall, I really enjoyed this one. The conflict is a little predictable and it has a pretty abrupt ending - but I'd recommend this one. I really hope the heroine's roommates get books.

Loved this story. My only complaint, it wasn't long enough. No seriously, I felt like it needed another 100 pages and it would've been golden. The ending was rushed. But all the other stuff, the beginning and middle, was pure awesomeness. Seriously, Tessa Bailey can write funny, attentive, entertaining and smut all nicely into one book. This was a great beginning to a new series.

Chronicles of annihilating my TBR:

I bought this book over 6 years ago and I'm finally getting this one off my list.

This was cute and funny. There was some really humors parts that make me look forward to reading more by Tessa. This is a good transition book or beach read because they don't go too in-depth with emotion. But still fun.

Another scorching hot read from Tessa Bailey. The weirdest meet cute ever with the female MC Roxy donning a pink rabbit costume in order to sing a telegram to a perfect stranger since she is strapped for cash. Louis, waking up from the worst hangover ever thinks he is hallucinating but the rabbits voice intrigues him. Their banter is witty and charged, and after a drool-worthy kiss, the gauntlet is thrown down.

As much as this was about both of them growing and becoming better versions of themsel

Now that was a lot of fun!

I almost didn’t read Chase Me, because I’m kind of getting burned-out on this genre. Thank goodness I didn’t miss this one, though. It’s a really quick read that’s sweet, sexy and full of laughs. The humor is the main thing that won me over, but there are many other aspects that helped too.

Roxy is a struggling, newly homeless wanna be actress. She takes a job singing messages dressed in a bunny suit. Louis' ONS orders an ode to his penis and Roxy delivers the messages to a still drunk Louis. Only she ends up kissing him as well......the intense chemistry between them causes Louis to relentlessly pursue Roxy

Seriously guys, if you're a fan of quick sexy romances and haven't tried any Tessa Bailey books, then you're missing out. She's one of those authors I always turn to when I'm in the mood for a lighter read that can set my e-reader on fire. With Chase Me, she once again crafted such a story. As soon as I read that first scene in Chase Me and was dying of laughter, I knew I was in for one helluva of a ride. Chase Me has to be one of Tessa's funniest book and I loved how she was able to blend in hu

How much did I love this book? So much, in fact, that I actually may have considered dressing up in a pink bunny suit and writing a song about it. Okay, maybe I wouldn’t go that far, but I did really, really enjoy it.

From the very first meeting between Roxy and Louis, their chemistry sizzled off the page, and it only grew as the story went on. Louis earned a Top Spot in the BBHOF (book boyfriend hall of fame) for sure. Not only for his dirty, delicious mouth, but because he was a sweetheart to b

I really do love me some Tessa Bailey. All of her books are amazing and this new series is right up there with the best. Tessa breathes life into the characters she writes and you instantly can click with each one. Everyone has been in the spot Roxy has been in. Having characters you can relate to make the story that much better. I would definitely love to have her as a friend because despite her reluctance to trust people, you would know she has your back. Then there's Louis, who was the perfec ...more
