I didn't even make it past the first page before I was smiling like a loon. With a clever reference to a book I love - Hazel James hooked me and from there? It was all heart eyeballs and swoony feels.

Well, okay, not all heart eyeballs and swoony feels. There were also tears. A virtual feels explosion, actually. And a hearty fascination with these delightfully layered characters that kept me flipping pages desperate for more of their story. A story that was hilarious - packed with irresistible fl

A new-to-me-author, Hazel James, delivers one of only a few romances I've read that include a tornado chasing hero. Living in the middle of tornado alley where the wind comes sweeping down the plain and where tornadoes come calling each spring, I've dived into my hidey hole more times than I care to remember so this book resonated with me immediately. The Oklahoma setting for this story, along with references to many familiar sites located in close proximity to my hometown, gave it a personal fe ...more

I loved reading the story of Paige and DH. This book has so many funny moments and there were many times when I found myself laughing out loud. I love when I'm reading books and people around me are wondering what it is they're missing out on. This is one of those books.

Paige is someone you want to be best friends with and it's very refreshing to see a character like DH having real issues and working through them.

Go out and buy this book pronto!

I was in bit of a book slump before starting this, but 'Chased' dragged me out of it and had me hooked from the start.
I loved DH (the main guy) from the minute he appeared in the book and I loved him until the end and Paige was a wonderful heroine. This couple had their share of problems, which added new dimensions, but it wasn't too heavy and didn't leave you drained at the end. It was a perfect mix.
I loved the background theme of DH being a storm chaser, which I didn't know much about before

Ok. Here's the deal. Hazel James is a gem. Not hidden. No. she's out there bright and shining, just a beacon of light needing to be seen. So look up. Seriously. If you haven't experienced the wonder that is Hazel's writing, you're missing out. Chased, her second published work, reads like that of someone who's just published book 30. It's unique and humbling and so original.

DH and Paige are characters I want to reach into the pages of Chased, pull them out, and make them real. I mean - they SEEM
I am in the complete minority here but I'm at 30% and have already started skimming. It's just kind of boring and predictable. I don't really like Paige. She's kind of judgemental among other things. DH is definitely a womanizer but every other scene is him running into some curvy woman who's giving him their number and his dick is happy. And we hear a lot about his dick responses and Paige's boobs responses or how the other would like to see those responses. Paige also has a boyfriend still and ...more
My review

Good but slow. Wasn't the type of story where I just had to know what came next, but I finished it just the same (which says something for me. I will be the first to find something else if a book isn't doing it for me). I think this would be a better read for someone who doesn't like a lot of angst and wants more of a "sweet" love story. I tend to prefer darker stories with more angst.

The author kindly gave me an Advanced Reader Copy of this book. I went in having absolutely no idea what the book was about and I was pleasantly surprised. It combined the adrenaline rush of storm chasing, sweet romance and an obviously deep knowledge of PTSD. DH was swoony and Paige was a very likeable heroine. All in all, an enjoyable read!

This book has everything a reader could ask for. An amazing story line, action, romance and characters that you can connect with.

Hazel James has created a book that you wont be able to forget anytime soon!

I absolutely loved it and highly recommend it!

I live in Oklahoma & have been through more than one tornado in my life, so reading about a storm chaser in Oklahoma was definitely intriguing & original. Paige has found the perfect job in her field of nursing, and life was good until she was caught up in a tornado (and yes a hospital in that area was destroyed in a vicious tornado in real life). After that, she viewed life quite differently as it was traumatic of course. DH is a straight up adrenaline junkie so it wasn't surprising after he go ...more

Life never follows our well mapped out plans. It's always an off-road experience, complete with some mud, blood and a few scrapes and bruises along the way. Sometimes, things have to go a bit sideways before we find ourselves in the perfect place for a miracle.

DH's journey started in the gutter and he's spent his entire life clawing his way out. To say he's got some hang-ups from his messed up childhood is an understatement but then throw in his time as a PJ in the Air Force and he's the walkin

I love when a book I’m reading mentions or refers to another book. It feels like the author is building up, appreciating, and recommending another author's work. I find that neat! You are hit with it right off the bat in this story and it made me want to keep reading. However, the amazing writing, the story line, and the great characters had me devouring this book as fast as I could.

Paige is an ER nurse, a bookworm, and a sassy spitfire with a cherry lip gloss obsession. She’s

"Paige is a bell I can’t un-ring, and I already know I’ll never be able to get the sound of her out of my head."

I am a little at a loss for words with this review. I'm just not sure I can say enough to describe just how beautiful of a writer Hazel James is. This was the first book I have read by her, and it definitely won't be my last. She writes the kind of words that speak to your soul. The kind of characters that you connect with on a level that makes you never want to leave their world.

What an amazing and emotional experience Hazel James has shared with readers. In her book Chased, she tells the story of Paige, an ER nurse who moved to Oklahoma after graduation. As with most entry level jobs she works the night shift in the ER where she meets DH. She is attracted to him but she is all but engaged to Chad who lives 7 hours away while he completes his degree in accounting. As we all know it is hard to fight the pull when you have a distinct attraction to someone. DH is not looki ...more
I won a copy of this book and I was super excited to read it based on the synopsis and the fact that it had to do with storm chasers. Living in tornado alley I love anything and everything to do with tornados.
I started this book with expectations and was blown away, both by the writing and by the story. This was so much more than just a storm chaser book. It had so much heart and feeling that it was easy to get swept away in the story, so much so that I read this in one sitting and ignored pret

This was a surprise book for me. I have not heard of this author before, and I have no idea how I came across this book. I just know that I downloaded it via KU, and it was sitting on my kindle, and decided to give it a try.

I'm so glad I did! It was different in the sense that the hero is an ex-military man, who on his free time from being a mechanic, chases tornados! DH is such an amazing hero, and I fell in love with him right off the bat. The heroine, Paige, is a nurse who you can't help but

Reading Chased gave me the smallest glimpse into the hearts and lives of military Veterans. Hazel, you've used your amazing talent to write a story that appeals to so many different readers. It shines a light onto a subject that doesn't get talked about enough. You've opened a door for non military families to see the scars of war that are often hidden. It was a beautiful love story that made me laugh and cry through the pages. I see so much of you and your soul on these pages. Thank you for sha ...more

Thank you Hazel for bringing me out of my reading slump! I am so glad I stopped by your table at SAE2018 and bought your book because it was amazing!

A beautiful love story with sizzling chemistry and a back story so very heartbreaking and real. You touched on a subject that needs more recognition.

You definitely have a new fan in me.

Boy did I laugh. This story is right up my alley. Witty nurse meets sexy bearded match. The story is full of funny banters, innuendos, sarcasm and sexual tensions.
Loved every page.
Read it! You can thank me later... or Misty...

Chased by Hazel James was an utterly consuming, mesmerizingly vibrant, and all-around amazing whirlwind of a story that I loved and felt every word of. Every single word of this book was so phenomenally and thoughtfully crafted, and bursting with the best amount of charm and personality. From the very beginning of this story I knew I was beyond hooked into what I was getting within its spectacular pages with these wonderful and distinctive characters. The more I experienced this story, and the m ...more

This is the first of two books set in the same town by Hazel James, in this one we meet Paige- an newly graduated green nurse and DH- a wounded military hero. Set in Oklahoma-one of the states considered to be right in tornado alley, that in fact is how the two meet. Because of a tornado. Now as someone who has grown up in tornado alley myself, I connected with all the prep that comes along with it being tornado season, Hazel accurately described what its like while having characters who are fla ...more
