Claire Winston knows she’s lucky to be alive—and even luckier to have the love and protection of a man like Prosper, her adoptive father and leader of the Hells Saints Motorcycle Club. Yet, try as she may, she can’t leave yesterday behind. She’s still haunted by Reno, the bad-boy biker her heart loves but her spirit fears. And she can’t seem to escape the terrifying memori ...more

What on earth happened?

I enjoyed the previous book Raine Falling so much I’ve read it several times, this book has been sitting on my kindle and I’ve no idea why it’s taken me so long to read it.

Amazon UK has 16 reviews for this book 14 of these are 5* and 2 are 4* I mention this because this was the sole reason I continued reading well that and I was in shock.

(view spoiler)
First let me say that Raine Falling (previously Game Changer) was one of my top 10 favorite reads in 2014. I fell in love with all of the characters and the author was able to drag me totally into the story. I did not want that book to end. I seriously had concerns about the author living up to my high opinion of book 1, but she did. Chasing Claire can be read as a standalone but the reader really misses so much of the back story if they do not read Raine Falling. I really liked how the author s ...more

Claire Winston is a survivor. Claire and her sister survived a troubled childhood, an abusive ex-boyfriend and she is still haunted by a brutal kidnapping. Trying to move on from her past, she goes to the one person who she knows can help, her adoptive father and President of the Hells Saints Motorcycle Club, Prosper. Of course Prosper's can help heal most of her troubles, he cannot heal her broken heart.

What a way to fuck up the beauty of this H/h in the last book...and then fill THEIR book with bullshit, other characters for future books, stupid meaningless plot, and an unrepentant manwhore with his doormat h.

Don't bother with this shit.

Total disaster and disappointment.

I really enjoyed Chasing Claire over Raine Falling. Ms. Marinaro did a better job with editing, more story development, and didn't over do the steamy scenes.


Claire has demons to face from her past and recent choices- which really, these were choices she should never have had to make. She's in love with Reno, but she's also a runner. She needs to let go of her fears, open up to Reno - once and for all, and plant her feet firmly in one place with the man who can ground her for life.

Three stars is a very generous rating for a book that, within the first few pages, set up a scene that was so nauseating that I was prepared for a big, fat, rant. The only reason this is getting an average rating for me is because of the other characters and plot lines that made up for the mediocre and frustrating H and h of this story.

Let's get back to the first volume in this biker romance series of the Hells Saints Motorcycle Club in which we meet the h, Claire Winston. In Raine Falling, Cla

3.25 RATING-I read Chasing Claire months ago but didn’t sit down to do a review until now. I guess I was a bit hesitant. I really liked the first book in the Hell Saints Motorcycle Club series, Raine Falling, and was looking forward to this one so much. Unfortunately, it fell flat.

The main complaint I have is that the author did a lot of “telling” and not a lot of “doing”. There were a lot of long monologues which made for a bit of a boring read. I was actually surprised by this because Raine F

I absolutely loved Raine Falling and was a little scared about Chasing Claire because Claire was such a wild card with her past and addictions. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by the direction Marinaro took in this story. Claire put on her big girl panties and took control of her life. Although Claire was still reeling from the violent events that occurred in Raine Falling, she is trying to find a semblance of normal for her life. And surprisingly, Reno, the sexy biker who she has ...more

4 1/2 stars
The first book in This series( I read the original version and the edited version) was one of my all time favorite MC books, what the author was able to create not only with the story but the characters and their relationships was magical so of course I was ecstatic and impatiently waiting for Chasing Claire. When I found out that it was available on NetGallery and then that I had been given a copy I was overjoyed.
5 Claire (Ring)ing Reno's Neck Stars

Welp....Claire out shine Reno by a long shot. Claire been through a lot in this book. The endless nightmares that she have gone through made her stronger at the end. The fact that she pull her life together and gone back to school was a plus. She literally did a 180 with life.

I'm still virtually flipping Reno off. Assclown. Such a douchey move for sleeping around.

Well let me begin by saying I never would have gotten to my HEA with Reno. There was a scene toward the quarter Mark of this book that would have been it for me in Claire's position. In fact I almost stopped reading and decided I needed a break from MC books. Reno was being a total a** and Claire was being stupid, stupid, STUPID!- my opinion of course. But it is very hard for me to quit a book. I'm just too curios; and must know what happens. I'm so happy I stuck with this one.

I absolutely loved Raine Falling and was a little scared about Chasing Claire because I didn't wanted the first book to be a one hit wonder, I really liked the author voice in the first one.
I shouldn't have worried, it was as good as the first, less drama, but still a page turner.
Reno and Claire have a few misunderstandings but work well through their obstacles.
I really enjoyed the story and the glimpses we see into Raine's life, she is happy and settled and Glory's life,

F me! I really enjoyed book one, but this one was a whole lotta shitty!

Woe Is Me

In book one, the woes
were real, palpable off the pages, and nothing was forced. I empathized with the characters and wanted them to solve their problems.

In this book, the woe of 'I killed them'... 'I'm so f'ing horrible'... OVER AND OVER for 12-13 chapters just wasn't believable. It's nothing but repetitively forced angst and woe.

Chasing Claire follows the story of Claire and Reno. Claire is just taking one day at a time. She's lucky to be alive. No one knows this better than her, but she can't seem to let go of the guilt that surrounds a truly terrifying night. Not to mention that she's still dealing with the loss of Reno. He broke her heart when he left and she's just trying to pick up the pieces....

Reno has tried anything and I mean anything to try to forget Claire. But, try as he might, he just can't. Somehow she bur

I liked it but I didn't love it. For the story and the main characters claire and reno I would give 3 stars, I couldn't feel the spark between those two. I enjoyed raine and diegos book much much more. My highlights of this one were the side stories about jules and glory (I'm so looking forward to their book), pinky and prosper (I love those two) and I'm very curious about this thing between dolly and gianni (I really hope they will get their own story someday), they all would get full 5 stars. ...more

Chasing Claire was at the top of my most anticipated reads list and I am so happy to say it did not disappoint. I loved this book! Paula Marinaro writes the best heroines ever. Strong, intelligent, beautiful women who know how to take care of themselves and their men while not being doormats in the process. Claire, Raine, Glory, Pinky and Dolly were amazing as they supported each other, but Glory and Pinky had standout scenes that had me cheering out loud while they kicked some serious ass.

2.5 rounded to 3 disappointed stars

Let me take a quote from Claire to explain my disappointment : "I just didn't know why we always had to be so complicated."

Right. Or in other words, both Reno and Claire are acting like little kids with inner monologues going : "it's his/her fault ...", "he/she should know how I feel ...", "he/she should be doing the first move ..."

And the first half of the book is only made of that , i.e. just too many monologues from both POVs and little action and they are

Reno was a lot of things, manwhore, partier, outlaw and lets not forget bad ass biker. Fiercely loyal to those he calls family.

Despite making some monumental mistakes along the way, his unwavering love for Claire is breathing taking!

Reno wasn't hearts and flowers but he was man who'd help weather the storms in Claire's life, while offering shelter and solace.
Such a good emotional read, reminds what love is.

I received an ARC of this book from Netgalley in return for an honest review

Claire pulled at my heart strings in Falling Raine last year and I was keen to hear more of her and Reno's story. I just knew it wasn't going to be a relationship that fell into place easy. With so much baggage from their childhood Claire and Raine have turned out to be two strong women…well most of the time.

I loved book one in this series, Raine Falling, so I was beside myself with glee when I got an ARC for it. I liked Chasing Claire a lot, but I didn't love it as much as the first one. There were parts of the book that were beautifully written, but there was so much of this book that just felt like the author missed some opportunities that could have made a good book great.

I'm really sad to report that this book did not work for me. I was in a motorcycle club mood, so I was really excited to get my hands on this. I just wish I liked it more.

In the beginning, the chapters felt like they ended abruptly. Like maybe a few of them could have been combined. Not a huge deal though.

What was a huge deal was that I just never grew to care about Claire and Reno's story. They got together fai

Reno he's cocky, blunt, demanding, has a no care attitude, sexy and he can read his girl, "hey, you hungry?" I glared at him.then my stomach growled. "Yeah, you're hungry." He smirked." When he's in the mood for his woman he isn't playing around that boy gets serious, "pretty dress, babe." I smiled at him. "Now take it off." I enjoyed this book I loved Reno and Claire, at times though in round myself more intrigued with Jules and Glory, I'm hoping there's a book in the works for them.
