Chasing Vivi is a Second Chance, Enemies To Lovers, Stand Alone, Contemporary Romance

Vivi Renard—a blast from the past—wasn’t supposed to affect me like this.

When I knew her ten years ago she was nothing more to me than a highly functioning brain.
Hell, I paid her to do my homework.

Only now … she’s drop dead gorgeous but had the nerve to turn me down for a date … several

⭐⭐⭐⭐! Chasing Vivi (stand-alone). A blast from the past, Prescott will jump through hoops to make amends with Vivi!

“It didn’t take long for me to rip off her shirt, get her completely naked, and have her sit on my face for a little ride. She loved it. That’s how she ended up on the dining room table, tied up, and blindfolded.”

Chasing Vivi by A.M. Hargrove has me totally smitten with her characters, Vivi and Prescott. This book was just what I needed to destress and relax. It had a culmination of every elements that I look forward to reading in a sweet and sexy frenemy love story. It had sass, personality, and charm to make any readers devour this book in one sitting. So if you are looking for a romance that was layered with raw emotions, depth, healing, and seco

I am a huge fan of A.M. Hargrove and Chasing Vivi has to be my favorite solo and standalone by her to date. I was immediately on that gorgeous and uber delicious cover and the intriguing blurb. I was completely captivated from the first word to the very last and was left wanting more. I never wanted this book to end!

Prescott Whitworth Beckham's life changed the moment he walked into that coffee shop and set eyes on Vivienne Renard for the first time in years. She was the smart girl who did his h

Chasing Vivi is a second chance, frenemies to lovers to romance.

Vivi and Prescott went to Crestview together where they really weren't friends but they also didn't hate one another - they knew of each other. One thing neither expected was to run into the other in their later years of life.

Vivienne Renard was known to all as the smart, fat girl at their private school. She dealt with constant bullying and hated every day of attending school. But she did it for her mom - she never complained becau

Another GREAT book from AM Hargrove. She never fails to impress me with her stories an characters. I get caught up in her books everytime I pick one up.

Chasing Vivi is one I have been waiting to read, ever since I met Prescott in A Special Obsession. I knew he story as going to be a good one and I wasn’t disappointed. This book had everything I look for in a 5 star read. She gave us an intriguing storyline, i

In typical style for this amazing author, she's once again provided an entertaining romance with plenty of sexy scenes and angsty tension. Chasing Vivi has a slow burn feel that will reel you in from page one.

Prescott and Vivi went to the same high school but walked on completely different paths. Prescott has everything easily handed to him with an air of entitlement... at least that's how it seems. Vivi has suffered significant lost and struggles to keep her head above water. When their opposit

I was immediately sold on the sexy cover and intriguing blurb of Chasing Vivi. I'm a sucker for second chance love stories but also enemies to lovers which are two of my favorite tropes. This book was a mix of both and a very entertaining read. Who wouldn't love a gorgeous, rich Alpha man with daddy issues chasing after the ugly duckling turned beautiful swan who has been knocked down by life too many times to count and who happens to be his former overweight, shy schoolmate?

OMG!!! I absolutely loved this book. And this is not only because of the sexy as hell and uber delicious cover. The thing is: there is something so special about A.M. Hargrove and her writing. It just sucks you in and doesn't let you go. I love to lose myself in her stories and her characters. They are my happy place.

Chasing Vivi by A.M. Hargrove is a second chance at love story for enemies to lovers Vivi and Prescott. They went to high school together to a private, expensive school where each had very different experiences. Years later, Prescott runs into Vivi and decides he had to have her. Easy, right?

Nothing is ever easy. Vivi Renard hated her teenage years. High school for her meant getting bullied at every turn. Her only highlight was her crush on Prescott Beckham, but all he ever saw was the girl he

Vivienne "Vivi" Renard has had a tough life. When things were looking up, she was dealt another blow in the loss of her mother and only family she had left. The career she's worked so hard for is gone and now she's living in New York City, working for a sketchy character who owns a chain of coffee shops.

I am completely SMITTEN with Prescott and Vivi. Chasing Vivi was everything I've come to expect and love from A.M. Hargrove.

Vivian “Vivi” Renard’s has had a tough life. Nothing has come easy for her, from being bullied in school to her new life in New York. But she's INDEPENDENT. She will not rely on anyone! I LOVED her spunkiness. She is totally BADASS!!! I love her don't take no crap attitude.

Chasing Vivi was a really good read this would be my first book by AM Hargrove and it wont be my last . Adored Vivi she is a interesting heroine but at times she did bother me with how quick to judge the hero but that was my only problem after everything she has been through shes very strong , beautiful , funny , smart and sweet . Prescott shows alot of growth through out the book with the help of his trusty secretary , grandparents , and of course Vivi I liked how protective he was of the heroi ...more

4.5 stars!

I picked a great story to my first A.M. Hargrove read. It has a lot of elements that I love, like enemies to lovers and second chance-ish feels. But what I loved most were the characters. Vivi is always likable and lovable. She's scrappy and independent. She's had a lot happen to her, but she's always worked hard and made the best of it. Prescott is wealthy. He has everything he's ever wanted, until he meets Vivi. All she sees is his alpha personality and how he was when they were in h

I really loved this one. You certainly get more than what's advertised on that sexy cover. I expected this to be all about chasing Vivi for sex, but it was sooooooooo much more than that. The story was definitely sexy, but it also had depth. I was easily caught up in Vivi and Prescott's story. This was a hard one to put down.

FINALLY!! Finally a story where the woman didn't throw herself at the rich guy as soon as he pulled the black Amex out of his wallet. (Not that I remember that this happened here but you get what I’m saying.)

I loved how strong, stubborn and independent Vivi was despite her situation. She needed the money really bad but she rather earned it herself than take the offer of easy money. A woman with a strong backbone made for a welcome change in our instant-panty-dropping book world.

4.5 "Little Wolf" Stars!!!

Chasing Vivi was a sweet, easygoing and funny book. I really enjoyed the story and characters. By looking at the cover, one might think that this book is only about one thing. And, yes, there is steam, but it's much more than that. It's about two people dealing with difficult things and trying to heal themselves. It's about learning to trust others, but more importantly to have trust in yourself.

Fall in love with Prescott and Vivi in Chasing Vivi by A.M. Hargrove! I was smitten from the beginning until the end with a strong willed heroine who makes her hero chase her, who doesn’t love that?

Another spectacular book from A.M. Hargrove!! I mean OMGGGZZZZ when I finished the last page, I was so smitten with these two and the whole experience left me with alllll the feels. This is not your typical love story; it's magnificent, enticing, and panty melting.

Prescott and Vivi don't exactly start off on the best foot. I mean they knew each other in high school but A LOT has changed since then. Prescott is used to having the world at his feet, if he can't have what he wants, throw some money

This is a second chance--enemies to lovers romance. The couple knew each other in high school when Prescott paid Vivi to do his homework. She was less entitled than him and he saw it as a way to help her out while helping him out. He never gave her a second thought until years later he stops for coffee and is blown away by the woman she has become.

Both these characters come with lots of past baggage. Prescott needs to convince Vivi he is not like the teenager she knew. Vivi needs the confidence

This is really nice book. The chacters of this book are awesome and specially, Prescott.

Prescott was such a awesome character and god , he has tried every thing so that he can go close to, Vivi. This is kind of second chance novel. This is book about two people, who were in school, and how they meet after few years. During there school time, Prescott was popular and heroine was fat girl and other students were behaving very badly with her ( not Prescott).

This is the first book I've read by A.M. Hargrove and I was told that her books are great. Well, this book wasn't a disappointment at all.
I liked it a lot.
1. Because the characters didn't annoy me. I loved that Viva wasn't a doormat. She was an independent and confident woman, but wasn't playing hard to get. I loved Prescott because he was a known player, but when he met Vivi again after so many years, he lost all the interest in other woman and was only focused on Vivi. Most of all I liked

4.5* read.
This is a enemies to lovers/second chance romance read. One of my favourite genres to read is enemies to lovers, mainly due to the chemistry and sexual tension that builds up just makes for a great read.
The characters made this book for me especially Vivi who was a very strong lead character who I instanly connected too. I think she was just someone I could relate to easily and her and Prescott made the perfect couple and their banter was hilerious.
Full of twists and turns you won't

Loved this book!! Vivi is a take no crap woman who has fought for everything she has. Prescott irritated me to no end in the beginning. He had few redeeming qualities. But it was great following their story and seeing how their relationship grew. Great book!

This is such a great read. Its funny, romantic, has drama, and of course steamy sex scenes. Not only that but A.M. Hargrove addresses some very series issues throughout the book and the importance of seeking help for them. I loved Prescott and Vivis story just as much as I loved Special and Weston's from A Special Obsession. A.M. Hargrove writes amazing love stories that feature strong willed women who don't just fall over the bad boy turned good male. This book did not disappoint.
