Paige Landry
I finally made it. I graduated nursing school, and I found the perfect job. Things were great until a tornado blew through the emergency room, turning my life upside down. I don’t know if I can ever go back to the way things were before. Tornado survivors have a choice to rebuild, or pack up and move away. I’m twenty-two, and I know that one day I want the Amer

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

I picked up Chased from Hazel James because I loved that it seemed to be a hidden gem, unique within the romance genre. I had never read a story about a storm chaser so to say that my interests were piqued would be an understatement. Needless to say, I was incredibly blown away by the reality-based driven characters and a plot that flowed effortlessly.



Much like the people we meet in the everyday, DH was comprised of layers that I felt like I had to constantly peel back. I appreciated seeing how

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!

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!

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 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.

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.

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

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

I've always been a fan of the natural disaster movies that Hollywood has put out - the first one I ever saw was Twister and I've been obsessed with watching it again often throughout my life. I've always had a strange fascination with storms so when I ran across this book and saw the cover, I knew it was a book I needed to read. This is my first Hazel James read, and I can't wait to read more.

This was absolutely one of my favorite books so far this year! From the very beginning I was laughing my butt off, it made for such an amazing read! I LOVE Romcoms, as much as I love super emotional books, I love Romcoms even more. This one was PERFECT! There was the perfect mix of seriousness and other emotion. That really helped this become such an amazing read. There were just so many layers to the story and to the characters. It really was like peeling an onion.

I love the idea of storm chasers falling in love! I've never seen a tornado my self, but when I read these kinds of books they show a beauty to them that even thought all the distraction, there's a light at the end.

I loved Paige. She had. Lot of spunk to her and when we are inside her head; I was really able to connect with her and what she felt.

DH was so sweet! He had to find that one woman for him and seeing him do that, was a fun experience. With his past and PTSD, I was still able to connect

This book absolutely stole my heart and made me a believer! Paige is an amazing heroine, relatable, funny compassionate and just a all around real. DH, that man was like an onion and every layer that was peeled away made me love him more! He became a man most women would be so blessed to have, to be the one to remove the layers and see the real man he was. If only I could find a DH of my own.

A great read

A really good book that addresses the highly emotive issues of PTSD and loss during war.

The book was ostensibly about a tornado chaser, but his character was so much more than that. DH was a neglected child, a war hero, mechanic, storm chaser and general adrenaline junkie.

Paige was a nurse, a dreamer, bookworm and a Wizard of Oz fan. Their relationship started out a bit prickly, but they fell for each other in spite of their initial misgivings.

This book has so much depth to it, it’s

This is the first book I have read by Hazel James and I absolutely loved it! She has garnered herself a new fan! As being a huge Wizard of Oz junkie, all the references to the movie and characters was a huge plus for me.

Chased is packed with all the feels and some tears. You get a bit of everything packed in 338 pages of goodness. Along with some spectacular characters and story line, there is love and loss, twists and turns, laughter and heartache, and drama and adventures. Ms. James also gives

Chased by Hazel James is a new adult, contemporary, military romance told in alternating POV. The characters were well-developed, multifaceted and relatable. I really enjoyed the love story between Paige, the witty, book-loving ER nurse, and DH, the cocky, military veteran, storm chaser.

This book had a little bit of everything. There was humor, romance, chemistry, emotional depth, some action and a little suspense too. All of these aspects were balanced beautifully and the story flowed at a nat

First time read for me of Hazel James’ work and I enjoyed the read. There story wasn’t just about two people finding love, it had a depth only a hearts darkness can add.

Sensitively handled the topic of our returning servicemen and the ghosts they bring back from the frontline. Not everyone can be “fixed” so having both sides of the coin in this story added a real life balance.

First, I'd like to say thanks to all the service men and women out there and thanks for continuing to be heroes. Second, this book was great. I loved the concept that you don't have to stay broken even if you fall more than one time. We don't have to be Humpty Dumpty's. I hated the childhood that DH had, but it's an amazing feat when someone can come from that and be the amazing man that he was, even though he did have some women problems at the beginning. I loved that Paige knew what she wanted ...more

Wow.....just. Wow.

I waited too long to read this book. I know I did. I needed this book's wit and sarcasm and the way it dealt with some really heavy stuff.

DH was easy for me to relate to. Why? Because I too had a terrible childhood. My parents weren't the best. I'm really fortunate that I don't remember any of the really bad things. I went to live with my maternal grandparents when I was six. I was 'saved' before DH was but I really grew attached to him because of that.

Paige is amazing. Unde
