I found her hiding in her own eyes—
the pretty little thing in black Chucks.
Even then I knew...
Knew that she would light my world.
Knew that she would steal my heart.
In just one glance, I knew I'd let her have it all.
All she had to do was take it.
All she had to do was chase her...
Chase the girl I saw in those gorgeous brown eyes.

Kenzie and Coder... I'm not sure where to begin for this review. I absolutely LOVED this book!!!! I typically don't read NA but I gave this a shot and I'm so glad that I did!!! It had moments that made me laugh, cry, and smile through the tears. It's everything an NA read should be. There was no immature annoying whining, it was just about 2 people finding each other, a shy girl growing into adulthood. A man who had been there/done that and looking for something real instead of fleeting.

I would

What a love story - sweet, sexy romance! I enjoyed reading how Kenzi and Coder fell in love; you could tell right away that these two were meant for each other. He brought out the best in her and allowed her to see it. Their love was perfect. He always had her back even when she feel apart and that made me swoon. Coder is serious book boyfriend material! Every time he asked her for a kiss I sighed happily in want.

R.C. Martin is now definitely an author that I'll keep track of so I know what she

OMG you guys, THIS BOOK!! Wow, what a souful and emotional story, all the feels, aggggh!

I don't know where to start, maybe by saying that, if you've read RC Martin before, you know what I'm talking about. Chasing After Me is this sweet, powerful story of love between polar opposites, Kenzie (Mack) and Coder, two beautiful souls that fit perfectly, like pieces to a puzzle, despite their differences. There's this one thing they have in common though, and thats their h

This story was completely enthralling, it had a little of everything. You will experience all the emotions from happy to sad to the sweet loving moments. While reading this book you just know Coder and Kenzie are meant to be together. I loved that there wasn't any drama, it was just a story about two people falling in love and we got to go on the journey with them.

Wow! What an amazing story! I loved Kenzie and Coder! Kenzie may have been shy, but she has a big heart. She is so caring and giving. Coder is big, strong, and sexy, and way out of her league. Opposites attract in this case. Their attraction was instant. Coder is drawn to her and respects her, and wants to be there for her and support her dreams. I loved the connection they had. It made me long for a love like theirs. Thank you for such an amazing book, RC Martin!

I Loved This Book!!

Chasing After Me makes the rank of the few books that have made me cry. Actually cry and at other parts well up. Kenzie and Coder couldn't be more wrong for each other and that's what made them just right. Coder is now on the infamous book boyfriend list as well. What a guy!

From the blurb the book sounds dark and mysterious and is anything but. It's a growing up, learning to live outside your boundaries and accept others for who they are story. While our characters are young,

This review is so hard for me to write! R.C. Martin out did herself again in another amazing read. You will be touched in many ways reading this book. You will fall in love with Coder and Kenzie story.

Holy smokes I fell so in love with this book!! I was sucked in right from the beginning and it just got better and better! Kenzie, a pre-med student who does not typically go out to parties, but instead volunteers her time at the children's cancer ward of the hospital, is taken out of her comfort zone when she meets Coder...only to find out her best friend is already into him and said best friend normally gets what she always wants. What to do? I love the chemistry between Kenzie and Coder...Eye ...more

I loved this book! It was mg first read from this author but definitely isn't my last.
I think one reason I really enjoyed this is that the main characters had substance. Kenzie wasn't just a young girl who wanted a guy. She is kind and cares about people other than her family and friends.
The main male character is the perfect mix of sweet and sexy. He respects Kenzie and has a close knit "family" behind him.
This book just hit all points for me. The perfect blend of emotions throughout.

We first met Kenzie in The Promises We Keep. She was the bouncy younger sister of Beckham. Now Kenzie is all grown up and ready for her story to be told.
Kenzie is strong, caring, determined, has a huge heart and isn't afraid to show her feelings. Coder is a guy who has been through a lot and is ready to just be "there". When these two meet, there is an instant connection, I swear I could feel the spark shoot out of my kindle. Their story was sweet, and sexy and heartfelt. And Coder's kisses! Th

Kenzie is a young, shy, pre-med student, who is beautiful and wise, as she blossoms throughout this story. Coder is a dirty-mouthed, sexy, big, quiet alpha, who knows what he wants, and will do anything to get it. No spoilers from me though, you absolutely need to read this one for yourself!
This is a beautifully written storyline, and there is one thing for sure, this author is totally amazing in her talent, and I was captivated from the very beginning. This story has a rollercoaster of emotions

This was the first that I have read from R. C. Martin, however it will NOT be the last. This book had be on the edge of my seat the whole time.

The way that Mack and Coder meet and how they are perfect for each other. Coder is always there for Mack while she tries to get through premed who is not afraid to show her feelings. The connection between them is amazing. The way that R. C. Martin writes it out on the page and paints the picture is a great work of art.

This book sucked me in from the beginning and left me unable to stop until I had finished it. It's such a sweet story about innocent love that you get sucked up in. A story about an unlikely couple who strive to understand each other, and the love between them. The characters are so well written and developed, lacking absolutely nothing. R.C. Martin has done it again, making me fall in love with other people more than I probably should. This is the first I've read in the "Made for Love" Series, ...more

Chasing After Me is an emotional romance, that hits you square in the heart right off the bat. It's a tale of love, life, friendship and crisis of faith.

Kenzie, "Mack," is a premed student. She's young, but wise beyond her years. She's shy, but feels so deep, and loves very hard. I loved her character, she was very true to life, multifaceted and determined.

Coder is a bit older than Kenzie, big, sexy and quiet, he knows what he wants, and will go after it.

Friendship, family and loyalty were a l

Wow, just wow! A sweet love story involving two- people who on the surface may not be compatible. However, the more we get to know each character, we know deep in our hearts they belong together. It also reminds us, do not judge a book by its cover. This story is about compassion, friendship, and love. In addition, it teaches us to be our original selves, to go after what it is that we want in life and never to give up. Oh, did I mention, sex? Yeah, always about crazy sweaty monkey sex, and oh t ...more

I received an ARC of this book for an honest review. I have never read anything else by this author and I wasn't sure what to expect. This was a very cute love story that had me reading late into the night. I really liked the the main characters Kenzie (Mack) and Coder. Coder is a swoon worthy book boyfriend. He is a bit older than Mack and he is super sweet and definitely knows what he wants and goes after it. He always makes Mack feel like she is the most beautiful girl in the world even thoug ...more

I'm sad to say that this was my first book by R.C. Martin... but it will not be the last. I know that it is book 5 in the Made for Love series, but you can definitely read it as a stand-alone (although now I wanna know about all the other characters!). I thoroughly enjoyed reading Kenzie and Coder's journey. Kenzie goes through a pretty huge and difficult personal journey throughout this book and along the way she meets Coder, dear sweet perfect Coder. I just can't say enough about him. He was a ...more

This was the first book I have had the chance to read by this author and am now learning there are more where this came from. RC Martin did a SPECTACULAR job at making this a true standalone. Not once did I ever get caught wondering who characters were or where they fit in the story.

This story of Kenzie and Coder is so much more than a romance. It's thought provoking and emotional, going through all the feels of a good story. And can I just say, I LOVE Coder. like, LOVE LOVE. He's true book boy

This book took me on an emotional rollercoaster and I loved every moment of it.

Kenzie is a shy, premed student who is wise beyond her years. When she loves, she loves deep. I loved watching her grow throughout the story.

Coder is a dirty-mouthed, quiet, alpha. He knows what he wants and isn’t afraid to go after it.

I fell in love with the characters immediately. Kenzie and Coder had off the charts chemistry . The storyline and characters flow well. It is a story about friendship, family, loyalty,

What a romantic sweet lovestory this book is, I loved it! Although I didn't trust Coder at the start, it turned out that he and Kenzie were perfect together. This is the first book I've read by R.C. Martin, I look forward to reading more books by her. This is a standalone story in the series.

I wasn't sure what to think of this book going into it. This is the first book I've read from this author and wow am I blown away! This book has it all plus a few shed tears. I love how Coder and Mack meet and how he is always there for her and supports her. I love how she is finding herself throughout this book and becoming so much more than what she started off as when the story started.

I honestly can't say enough about this book. I freaking loved it so much!! Coder honestly had me falling in love with him within seconds of meeting him. He is so straightforward and he is done messing around. He wants to find his true love and settle down. When he meets Kenzie he is instantly drawn to her. I love their story. They are just two honest people who are both drawn to each other and it's really beautiful to read. The kisses, just wait to you read about the kisses!! Another great book ...more

Chasing After Me was a sweet, and emotionally intense book that I devoured in one sitting. Like literally, sat in one position until the very last page. Kenzie is a sweet, and shy 19 year old girl who leads a quiet life, until fate steps in, bringing her face to face with a super hot tattoo artist, named Coder. He's the polar opposite to her, and yet, they work somehow. There's the tease for this amazing NA story, and I don't normally read them these days, but this one was so worth reading. Sinc ...more

I voluntarily received an ARC for my honest review. 5 FREAKING STARS!!! This book made me feel so say the least I cried just after reading the prologue. This book is about Kenzie "Mack", a girl trying to find herself, whilst trying to restore her broken heart. In the process she finds Coder, he is exactly what she needs, and he helps her heal and grow into the person she wants to be. Kenzie is so kind hearted and selfless, no matter how much she hurts, she just keeps giving. Her charac ...more

Chasing After Me is my first read by R.C Martin and it will not be my last. Let me begin by saying that I wasn't sure what to expect by the synopsis and it started off just a tad slow for me, but once I figured out where this story was headed I dove in and didn't want to take a breath. I found it to be an amazing story of finding oneself through heartbreaks and seeing yourself through someone else's eyes.

In this story we have Kenzie a beautiful, shy, caring, family-oriented, religious and pre-me

Wow!!!! This book was so good that I could write the longest review ever as it deserves that much praise, but I won't lol. This story was beautifully written in so many ways. Not only were the characters fun but they were real and very relatable, as was the story. The bonds within these friends is what really made me smile throughout the entire book. Kenzie and Brooke, especially, had the best friendship ever. They may be opposites in almost every way, but they share the same loyalty, love, thou ...more

I always have to read a series in the order that they were released but The Made For Love series is my exception. I haven’t read the entire series but I have read few of the books to tell you that I love this series.

The last book in a series is usually the book that I never read. I know you’re reading this and thinking, “so you don’t really finish a series?” not really I feel like the last book will make or break a series. So to say I was hesitant to go into Chasing After Me is a bit of an unde

This book had a little bit of everything and so much more!! Coder and Kenzie's love story was a fabulous read, every page I finished, left me wanting more. It was a beautiful story of two people who led polar opposite lives but also had so much in common that they made it work!!! This book made me laugh, made me cry, but in the end, I was completely fulfilled. I highly recommend this book for anyone seeking a HEA, with a few bumps and hiccups in the raod!!!! Every girl needs a Coder!!!
