I’m the wild girl whose mom decided she didn’t want to live anymore. I grew up with a daddy who only had half a heart, in a town where everyone knows everyone.

*****Although Chasing Ellie can be read as a standalone, I highly recommend reading Chasing Fireflies in order to experience the full emotional onslaught of this beaut! *****

There are books that make you feel, then there are books that become one with your soul, your being, and Chasing Ellie is just that! Paige P. Horne takes us, the reader and

Chasing Ellie was literally about Tommy chasing Ellie. He pined for her for years never shying away from his feelings for her. Ellie remained indifferent towards Tommy never claiming more than friendship. Ellie could not wait to run away from her small town leaving Tommy behind. Back and forth they spent wasting time apart without trying to figure out how to make the relationship work. Ellie was too stubborn and set in the idea that love would destroy her dreams.

There's no way that you cannot love this book. It has all the feels because even though it might make you sad and angry at times, there’s also lots of hope and happiness to make you feel good.
And we all know that things often get worse before they get better.

4.5 stars! ARC review!

The angst was strong with this one! I feel exhausted and my emotions are all over the place after reading Ellie and Tommy's story. You know a book is really good and unforgettable when you cry throughout the entire time.

I highly suggest you read Chasing Fireflies to get the gut wrenching feels when reading Chasing Ellie. It is not necessary, but I highly recommend you do because it is one of my top reads and another unforgettable love story. #CashWilliams<3

Chasing Ellie: A Chasing Fireflies Spin Off by Paige P. Horne. Chasing Ellie is a stand-alone contemporary romance novel. Reading Chasing Fireflies isnt required for better understanding. But I recommend to read this wonderful book too.

Chasing Ellie is Tommy and Ellies story.
Meet Ellie Williams, wild child - whos mother commited suicide and a dad with only half a heart- living in a smalltown, Green Ridge.
She fears love.
And there is Tommy Kinsley, a teen from chicago who visits his relatives. He

I've been eagerly awaiting this book since reading Cash and Sara's story (which incidentally was my number one too read).

This is Ellie's story, and folks, get ready for "all the feels".

I was given an ARC of tI washis book for an honest review.. You know the sign of a good book if it has you talking back to it. Ellie fell I. love with Tommy when she was a teenager but was afraid of love so she kept him in the friend zone. She saw what losing someone did to her dad and she was determined not to feel that pain. All Tommy wanted was a chance with Ellie. He was getting tired of being the "best friend " but was willing to take what she gave . But it wasn't it the cards for them . Th ...more

Chasing Ellie was amazing! It gives you all the feels. I could not put it down! I loved Ellie and Tommy!!! Their love is beautiful and I thought they had such amazing chemistry! I loved them together. This is a standalone but I highly recommend reading Chasing Fireflies, which is Ellie's parents Cash and Sara's book, because it was just as amazing as this!

An ARC of Chasing Ellie was provided to me for an honest review and was my first read by Paige Horne and I absolutely loved every word of it!! I fell in love with Tommy and Ellie from the very first moment they met!

Ellie is the girl who doesn't get too close or fall in love. She saw how it destroyed her dad (Chasing Fireflies book 1) and doesn't want to end up with a broken heart. Tommy is the boy who grew up fending for himself his whole life fighting for everything he had. When Tommy moved to

Loved this book just no words for how this author touches us with her style of writing.
My heart hearts! Chasing Ellie is so much more than I expected. I knew I was going to love Little Miss’s story regardless of what was written, but the emotions you go through reading this has you wiping you eyes, smiling and wanting to shake Ellie for her stubbornness. Whewy she is a combination of her mama, Sara and her daddy, Cash AKA The Chief. She is the wild girl, much like her mama, but she thankfully didn’t get her illness and stubborn is putting it mildly just like her daddy. Little Miss ...more

5 Stars!

So many feels! So many!
Chasing Ellie is an absolutely fantastic read. Spanning over ten years, we see Ellie from childhood to adulthood. Ellie has a tough life. She lives with the stigma of her mother, a father who only half loves her and the need to protect her heart. When Tommy shows up, a hardened boy from the rough, south side of Chicago, he is immediately drawn to Ellie. He wants more from her than she is willing to give and she can’t get over the need to keep herself protected from

Ellie had lost her mother to suicide which devastated her father and he went into a shell. It was hard for him living in a small town where everyone knew your business.
Ellie was a wild and carefree girl. She was afraid of loving someone due to what had happened to her parents.
Tommy and his brother Ronnie were from the south side of Chicago and had moved to the small town. Ellie and Tommy became very close friends from teenage years to adulthood. Tommy was immediately enamoured with Ellie at a

Chasing Ellie was the first book that I have read by Paige Horne. I absolutely loved it. Loved it so much that it will easily be one of my top reads for the year! A beautifully written story that takes you on quite a ride of emotions. I felt like I was right there beside the characters feeling them all…love, loss, anger, heartbreak and most importantly hope.

Chasing Ellie tells the story of Tommy and Ellie and their journey through life as they go from best friends to lovers. The other characters

This book was amazing! It was my first book by Paige, and it definitely will not be my last. Her style of writing & storytelling is exceptional. She took me on a journey that started when Ellie & Tommy were teenagers. I loved how Tommy chose to do more with his life than what he had growing up. Ellie's Dad gave her a good life, but she was terrified to fall in love, because she seen what loving someone & loosing them did to a person. It took her a long time to open up her heart, and ...more

This was my first book by Paige and I have to say that I am completely blown away. Her writing style is different from most authors and by being different she has allowed us a whole new spin on emotions. This book did not disappoint in any way, there was angst, drama, laughter and tears. The emotions just flowed off the page and wove their way into your heart and the sexiness was written in a way that allowed it to be cute and sexy, love making that did not come across as crass. I will be going ...more

Chasing Ellie was an absolute BEAUTIFUL book. It was one of those EPIC romances. I love books like this that transpires over YEARS and shows how strong their love is for one another. Like I said, EPIC. While I was reading it got better and better for me. I was so invested I couldn't even get up and do ANYTHING until I was done. I laughed, I cried, I swooned through the WHOLE thing. By the time I was done I couldn't believe this was my FIRST Paige P. Horne book?! You better believe I'll read more ...more
