Told in dual, third person POV (majority of it being the heroine's), I enjoyed this debut story by this author. The first 50% was sweet and likeable. The last 50% got a little noisy with some of the unneeded extra drama and lack of communication between the MC's (typical trope).
Looking forward to the next instalment in this series and excited to watch this talented new author further develop her skills and kick the next book out of the park.
First book in a trilogy series with no cliffh ...more

Genre: Romantic Suspense
Let me start out by saying that this cover is so eye catching. Am I right? Gah. I love this cover to pieces and wanted to read it not only because the blurb intrigued me, but because I have a thing for beautiful covers. With that being said, this book did NOT disappoint. It's edgy, suspenseful, and swoony. The plot is strong, the characters are extremely likeable, and the suspenseful and mysterious aspects of the book really add to the uniq ...more

“We know you’re looking for your Mr. Right, but while you’re at it, why not also have some fun with this Mr. Slightly Wrong?”
He had never forgotten her as she was his first kiss, but now he was a rich playboy often featured on tabloid covers, not someone she would consider as her type. Chasing Eva is a sweet and sexy love story with humor, steam, and broken-hearted ice cream binges among friends. It was a quick, amusing, intriguing, and entertaining read.
These are the titles of the books which form the trilogy: 1) “Chasing Eva”; 2 “Loving Eva” and 3) “Killing Eva”.
This first is the beginning of the story of Eva and Clive who are the main characters.
