I’m a simple guy. There are only two things I love: my family and playing professional football.

I may not understand why people get married, but I’d go anywhere for my brother, even his friend Camille’s wedding. Once I’m there, I realize our Bronx upbringing leaves me unprepared for the world of old southern money. Over twenty-four hours, I see scandal, threats

My favorite Kathryn Andrews book to date!

I'm so happy I was able to read an advanced reader copy of this book. I've been chomping at the bit to read it ever since I heard that Kathryn Andrews was writing another sports-centered and southern charm romance. I just LOVE that combination -- football and the beach? Antiques and lemonade? Big southern mansions and small town, charming little hearts? SIGN ME UP.

I will say, the beginning was kind of slow for me. It's hard for me to sign on to the "fake

The concept of Chasing Clouds was simple yet so unique in my eyes. Although I think that there are quite a few books with the same plot, it was exciting but especially new to me, since I haven't read a story like this before: A stranger speaking up at a wedding ceremony right before the "I do" and trying to save the bride he doesn't know from the groom and the marriage. I've never heard of anything like this happening in real life. It's

“Reid.” She pulls back, looks at my face, and then cups my cheek. Her thumb slides back and forth, making me feel treasured.

I've read Kathy's stories before and her writing in this case has a nice easy flow, this makes her story a joy to read and perfect to devour in one sitting. She perfectly delivered the story of a heroine who learns how to stand up for herself and a hero who is dumb struck by this heroine.
The result is a story that's endearing, charming and sweet.

Chasing Clouds is such a he

Do you ever start a book and have that feeling of knowing that that book will be everything you needed and more? Do you ever start a book and know from those first words, from the first few pages, from that first chapter that that book will be one of the most unforgettable stories you’ve ever read? Do you ever read a book and just know with every bone in your body that you are experiencing something truly beautiful and magical and exceptional?

It's hard to write a spoiler free review of this book. I will try because right now I am all in my feelings. Kathryn Andrews always leaves me totally and completely in love. Not just with the hero or heroine but with her words and the aspect of her stories.

I adored Reid. His passion, dedication, thoughtfulness, and his heart. He was selfless in all this except his vulnerability. That was his fault. His past playing a subconscious part in his present. He is the true definition of action speaking

Kathryn Andrews has it all in this summer's feel-good, uplifting, swoony romance. Just when I thought I knew these characters, she pulled back more layers to reveal jaw-dropping surprises and heart-bursting moments. Chasing Clouds isn't just about falling in love—it's about forgiveness, acceptance, and the beauty of vulnerability. Five Southern-charm stars for this book! ...more

Chasing Clouds by Kathryn Andrews
4.5 stars!!!

“They say the bigger they are, the harder they fall, and I think the earth is still suffering from the shockwaves of this one.”

Kathryn Andrews is one of those authors I have read from her very first book. She was one of those authors whose writing I connected with and she never fails to deliver a book with great characters, emotion, heart, passion and love, and Chasing Clouds was no different.

Oh my heck!!! Camille & Reid are THE BEST!!

Let's start off talking about this cover - are you as in love with it as I am? It holds special significance after you read the first couple chapters, too. Absolutely adore it!!

Now, the story. 10+++ stars! It's funny, unique, swoony and sweet. The characters leap off the page & become a part of you. The whole meet-cute is unconventional, the friendship they build is a fabulous journey, and the falling in love... *happy sigh* There are little surprises

Definitely my favorite book by this author so far and I LOVE this author! I was blessed with an ARC and couldn’t wait to dive in right away! It’s a page turner!

I loved this story!

There was such a gentleness to it that I felt it was one of those reads that slowly begins to wrap an arm around your heart and then, by the time you reach the ending, you find yourself in the a warm, safe embrace!

It was 'Southern Charm' meets'up and coming NFL starter' meets 'overbearing family expectations'...

I was literally floored at how seamlessly this was written...there was such an ease to the words as I found myself so invested in the storyline between the two easily l

3 it was good until the last two hours stars

I’ve said this once and I’ll say it again. I really hate listening to a book and it’s overall, light and angst free until the last two hours when authors need to throw in that last bit of drama for the climatic ending. I don’t get it. Why? I HATE miscommunication in books. I loath it. Something as simple as having a conversation could have prevented TWO hours of hardship.

With that said. I liked the first part of the book. I’m not sure if I would have l

I've read all of Kathryn Andrews' books and this is by far my favourite!

I was just 5% in the book and I already had this big smile on my face! I don't know what it was, okay so I know exactly what it was that made me smile and I knew I would enjoy this one.

I will say this though, for me, the books started a tad slow and while I was into it I wasn't flipping pages like I usually do but when the setting changed from gold old Southern royalty

Oh man I loved this book! It had everything I love. Plot twists, romance, one swoon worthy guy, and so much more. From the very beginning I was hooked. Camille is a daughter of a southern Senator expected to marry the man her father has chosen, and live the life her father and fiancé have planned. At the moment of truth, a stranger stands up and objects. Reid is an NFL player who has spent his life focused on the game to provide a better life for his mother and brother.

I absolutely loved Chasing Clouds by Kathryn Andrews. This is a must read! For me this book had it all, plot twists, romance, friends to lovers, and more.
Did you ever do anything impulsive because you thought it was the right thing to do? Would you trust a stranger and marry him so you could be free to live your life on your own terms?

A super hot and sticky summer read that builds excitement with every page you turn! I loved the chemistry the author brought to Camille and Reid’s relationship from the very beginning the sparks were flying of the page and dragging me into there world with them. Full of Southern drama and family dynamics that keeps the story more than your average romance book! I broke my heart for Camille so many times when I realised the huge weight she carries but Reid wasn’t baggage free either which I think ...more

I absolutely loved this book. The author drew me in immediately. Her writing style was one of my favorite things about the book. My other favorite thing was the two main characters Reid and Camille. From everything to the way they met to their fake marriage and all the drama that unfolds after. This book is filled with romance and passion filled with drama from the two of them as well as their families. I couldn´t ask for a better romance concept. This was an old concept with a fantastic new twi ...more

I’m a bit in the minority here with my feelings on Chasing Clouds. The first 25% was a little much for me to believe. The middle was the most enjoyable part and the last bit was nice but I could have used a bit more.

Even though those first chapters seemed a bit unrealistic, they gave you a glimpse at the personalities and backgrounds of Camille Whitley and Reid Jackson. They don’t have much in common. But there’s something there, maybe a bit of a spark.

The slow build is sweet and tender. I
What a beautifully written story.. I LOVE how Kathryn unravels everything.. the words and the emotions pull you in.. and make you feel everything.. once I got to the end and understood what happened.. my heart broke.. I have something in common with Camille (no spoilers) and I couldn’t even imagine what she went through.. brings tears to my eyes even thinking about.. yea I cried reading this book.. tears guys..

I just loved this book! It was my first book by Kathryn that I have read and it won’t be the last! I totally related to Camille as a southern girl myself. She had a similar personality and I saw myself in her. And Reid...Swoon! The whole plot was interesting and I thought it was different from what I have read before m. A few things it took a bit for me to pick up on, and when I did, things came together. I will definitely remember this book for a while and I look forward to more from Kathryn.
Beautifully written!

Camille & Reid’s story is such a beautifully story that has been written perfectly. The journey that these two characters take you one is one that you will never forget. I hope to Reid’s friends & family in the future. Maybe a HEA for his mother? This is my first book read by this author and trust me I will be reading The Hale Brothers series!

I stumbled across this book. Oh my good is it good. I could not put it down. You will fall in love with Reid immediately especially since he is a knight. Camille is needing a strong man that will make her grow in her own way.

This was such a good story. It drew me in right away. I went into this book without much knowledge. Someone in my book group asked for recommendations for accidentally married. This was in the recommendation saying it fit closely to the requirements. I grabbed it and listened to it without reading the description, and without reading any reviews.

I'm so glad I did. It was fun going blind into this story, and it did not disappoint. This was emotional and sweet and heartbreaking in some parts.
