Kylie Quinn is positive nothing could be more embarrassing on her first day of college than having her unmentionables go sprawling across campus. She was wrong. Very wrong. Having a super-sexy co-ed twirl them around his finger like he's privy to all of Victoria's Secrets is so much worse.

Xander Collins has met his match with Kylie—she’s gorgeous, smart, sarcastic as

Thank you Entangled: Embrace for providing an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

After Trusting Tanner, I crossed my fingers this one will be better and unfortunately, it's another let down. Chasing Xander is about Junior college student Xander Collins (Ryder & Tanner's youngest brother) and Freshman college student, Kylie Quinn . These two met in an embarrassing moment when Kylie accidentally dropped a box of her personal belongings as she moved in her new dormitory with her be

I haven't read the first book, but it's not necessary to enjoy this one.

NA novel with a former player Xander who turned sweet trying to make everything perfect for his girl Kylie. He was a little wishy-washy in his feelings as he he moved from man whore to a one woman guy. She's not had an easy life, and it just gets harder as the book goes on. Great little hook-up with their bffs.

For those who've read the first book Tanner and Jules make several appearances. I look forwa

Not going to rate this, wouldn't be fair.

This was a DNF. I strived to finished.

I couldn't go on when I hit 60%.

Characters behavior and dialogue way too immature. The actions seemed more middle school as well as progress of the couples relationship.

I really did try. Maybe YA books aren't for me anymore.

Received an ARC for my fair review for netgalley. This was the second book in the series. I loved Xander in the first book, and I could deal with him in this one.He was a little confused about his feelings, because he was always a player, and then he meet Kylie, a virgin and he is not used to those. Her father is horrible, and Xander steps in, and all hell breaks lose, but big brother comes to rescue, and it was good to see that Tanner and Jules were going strong. I can't give you more, but I pr ...more

Xander is just not bashful, “well, considering I just spent the last few minutes playing with your underwear, yeah, I want your name.” Kylie doesn't play any games, girl lets her man know what's up, “you think lunch is going to make this all better?” She shifted on her feet. “You’re going to have to do a lot better than that.” I likes this book, I lived Xander the man could be so sweet and very hard-headed. ...more

If arriving on campus for her first year in college wasn't nerve racking enough, Kylie Quinn takes a little tumble while unloading her things from the car, and winds up dumping her underthings all over the ground. Which is pretty embarrassing in itself, but then a handsome upperclassmen stops to help her and from there sparks and witty banter start flying... and a little crush starts to bloom!

Excellent read! I really enjoyed Kylie and Xander's story. The pace of the story was just a little slow for me but overall I found it very entertaining. The characters were well developed and the writing is good. Overall a great read.

Xander and Kylie meet on Kylie's first day on campus in a bit of an embarrassing moment. After a bad year last year Xander really needs to stay focused on his grades but he can't stay away from Kylie. She settles him. When she really needs him he has to make a choic

This is the 2nd book in The Collins Brothers series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. To avoid spoilers, and have a better understanding of the series, please read this in order.

Kylie meets Alexander AKA "Xander" on move in day at her dorm. He helps her pick up items that have dropped in front of the building. She is immediately attracted, but does not believe he is interested in her.

Xander has a lot going on right now. Adding a pretty girl who is distracting may not be the best of i

Another fun, sexy read by Lexi! I was curious about Xander from book one & so happy to finally get my hands on his story. Loved the playful banter between Xander & Kylie. I kept flipping the pages just waiting for Xander to realize he needed to abandon his one rule. Read this book in two days! Can't wait for the next Collins book! ...more

DNF 5%.

The characters were too immature for me to relate to. I couldn't get into this book at all.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This book was difficult for me to finish. It was a slow moving NA about two emotionally immature but otherwise dull people with random things thrown in to try and give it more of a plot. I had major issues with the discussion of Xander's reasons for wanting to avoid virgins. Honestly this is not a book I would recommend.

Xander was going across campus when while carrying boxes into the dorm with her best friend Celeste from home. Kylie trips and the box she dropped had underwear in it and was right near Xander.Kylie is really embarrassed as she picks up her undergarments then Xander questions Kylie on her choice of underwear. And she goes to head for the dorm again and Xander tells her his name and she just tells him her first name- Kylie. Kylie wanted to get away from home to go to college to get away from her ...more

I had to continually remind myself that the characters in Chasing Xander were still pretty much kids, so as to not let myself get too annoyed. And yet, I still got pretty annoyed because Kylie and Xander were so immature that I really felt like I was reading YA rather than NA.

Kylie is a brand new freshman moving into her dorm when she meets Xander, a junior. Their unfortunate meeting involved her underwear and tampons spilling out onto the ground and Xander um, "helping" her pick them back up. C

in spite of its title, chasing xander, is not really about a romantic chase, because kylie and xander spend little time running away from their romance.

when kylie quinn drops her underwear and other unmentionables in front of xander collins as she moves into her freshman dorm room she is beyond embarrassed. the last thing she expects is to keep running into him or for him to seek her out.

xander is ridiculously attractive and genuinely kind, and is an upperclassman to boot. so she can't figure ou

Lexi Lawton is a new author to me so I'm always a little skeptical because I'm a creature of habit, but the cover is niiiiice, so I figure, sure.  Kylie's moving to college and of course to start her first day off right her personals (granny panties and thongs) go all over the lawn. Enter sexy Xander. Kylie is a virgin but she's ready for Xander to show her some moves. Because Xander had a past issue with a girl and now he wants to take things slow with Kylie, so he's not really rushing to take ...more

OH wow this was such a great book. I LOVED the back and forth between
Xander and Kylie, they are adorable together but what they have to go through
to actually be together just makes this story so so much better.
What Xander gives up to help Kylie when her grandmother passes is so wonderful
even knowing it could mean his trust. It shows how deeply he loved her (even he didnt
realize it at this point)
WONDERFUL highly recommended read

This is the second book in this series by this author. This book can be read as a stand alone read. This is a fun and sexy read from this author. Very well developed characters, they had fantastic banter between them. The story flowed really well and was very believable. I can't wait to read more from this author and to go back and read the other books in this series.
Highly recommended

This is the second book in the Collins' brothers series and I didn't think the hero could get any better than Tanner. I was wrong! I LOVED Xander! He was your typical college frat guy but with a side of major swoon. The storyline, while frustrating at some points (the heroine wasn't my favorite but was likable), flowed very well and was believable. Overall great story. Now I really canNOT wait to read about Ryder. I need his book ASAP. ...more

DNF! I couldn’t even get more than a few pages into this book before throwing up my hands in exasperation. The writing is just weird. I can’t tell which style it’s supposed to be written in because first person and third person omniscient happen in the same paragraph. Rather than give myself a headache, I’m just throwing in the towel. This book needs a good editor to help the author improve.

Every girl dreams about a man like Xander...the one who'll give up everything for her and be there when she needs him most. Hot, sexy, funny and romantic; Chasing Xander has it all.

OK, first of all, I'M SO MAD. This had the potential to be a great comedy, like I saw in the first 20% of the book. Then the hot and cold thing arrives. And if that wasn't enough, he starts making a huge deal out of her being a virgin. WTF.
The worst thing is he doesn't even just cut ties with her, no. He strings her along for more than half book. Then, guess what? He's all why don't you come meet my family, even though there'
