Finding Allie
I'm really liking this twist on the Romeo and Juliet tale. It's pretty obvious that the children of rival drug dealers aren't going to be allowed to fall in love with each other, but in spite of that the chemistry between Chase and Allie is unstoppable. I'm not sure if Allie's really naive or if she's been unconsciously hiding from the truth. And Chase is a little rough around the edges but so amazingly gentle with Allie. They'll be perfect together once they can get past both fathe

Lies, murder and mistrust all combine to make this a compelling series.  This boxset comprises of : Finding Allie, Chasing Allie & Keeping Allie. 

This is the first romantic suspense series by Meli Raine - (aka Julia Kent) and is as well written and engaging as her other books.  

Allie is a sweet girl who has had a tough life.  Being left in the care of her controlling stepfather, she saves every penny she can to escape his clutches, and although he has never cared for her he is oddly protective o

This series wasn't as strong or suspenseful as some of Meli Raine's other series. I enjoyed the intertwined characters from the other series (Mark Paulson, Galt, El Bruho) with more explanation int their dynamic story. I've listened to the other series out of order so knowing that Allie and Chase appear living on the beach is a nice knowing conclusion.

The insta-attraction to one another seemed a bit rushed with a twist making you question everything for a while. I found myself looking at the bo

Awesome Read

Meli Rains, is a writing genius. I never dreamed I would read a suspense novel and it hold my interest. But the Breaking Away Series, Allies story did just that. From the beginning the grabbed hold, and didn't let go until the last word. Allies went through a shell of an ordeal. Losing her mother, two years ago, her sister moving to L.A., and having to live with her step father and work for pennies in his bar. She saved for those two years to move to L.A. to live with Marissa, her si

Chase and Allie

Bittersweet, tragic, destiny all are words that nearly describe this amazing story of two star crossed lovers. I couldn't help think of Romeo and Juliet - only in this case - Chase and Allie survive and thrive and love.

Action Romance

All Allie wants to do is move to California with her sister, but her stepfather has other plans. When she meets Chase, her feelings for him throws a kink in those plans. And when the unexpected happens, Allie needs Chase more than ever. Through twists and more turns, All of what Allie knows is flipped upside down.

I enjoyed this entire trilogy. It was funny and sexy, but loaded with suspense and action.

In the first book of the series Allie had lost her mom in a strange accident and has been living with her stepfather since then. She was working at her stepfather bar and he treated her as if she belonged to him. Then, Chase came to the bar and they looked at each other. Both felt the spark.

Man from the start it pulls you in and keeps you on the edge of you seat the whole time. Couldn't put it down it has so much happening so fast you couldn't stop reading. Unconventional love story but well worth reading. Young naivety of Allie who never knew what was going on around her to bad boy Chase walks in and her world changes. Not much on giving spoilers but this book is worth the read. Love it!!!!

Finding Allie is beautifully raw, achingly real, and stunningly heartfelt story of two broken people who are longing for a deeper connection that will allow them to spread their wings and fly. I was completely captivated by this incredible journey, and I found that my heart is no longer my own. What a wonderfully exciting start to a promisingly brilliant journey of hope, love, and determination!

Finding Allie----5 stars

Great book. Yes, it has a cliffhanger but this books contains it all, romance, suspense, bikers, first love. There were unexpected events in this book which kept it from being just another book about first love and bikers.

Young naive Allie has no clue what her stepfather is up to and has never had an interest in a man. She works in her stepfather's bar and can't wait for the day she can escape to LA that is until the Chase, a member of the Atlas MC walks in the bar. Allie

This is a great story with Allie and Chase. Allie works in her stepfathers bar and Chase is part of a local MC. When they first meet, they are drawn to each other. Allie has never had a man effect her the way Chase does. While her stepfather Jeff tells her to stay away from Chase, she can't stop thinking about him. Chase wants her and wants to protect her. This is a modern day Romeo and Juliet story and I really enjoyed it.

This story totally stole my heart. The characters of Chase and Allie are beautifully written. I found myself completely captivated by this story and quickly devoured each and every word. This is the first in a three-part series that ends in a cliffhanger. I am a fan of a good cliffy but was glad I had book two was right at my finger tips in this boxed set.

I rec'd a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This is a very intriguing new series and it really grabs you. I was fortunate to have a "snow day" today and got to read this first book of the series. I am glad that I already have the second book since the first leave you hanging a little. There is a ton of mystery in this book along with a sweet love story. Chase and Allie are adorable together plus have the chemistry of a young coup

Finding Allie: This is my first read by Meli Raine and I'm looking forward to reading more in this series. The characters are great with real flaws, real strengths, and real passion, the setting was good, and the story-line and discovering all the secrets will suck you in and keep you interested until the very end.
