Consider me chasing down those Chase brothers! Can’t wait to read more. Whenever I got a spare moment, Saul and Lowri is where my mind wandered to. What was going to happen next? I love that there wasn’t too much backtracking with their relationship. It felt real. After knowing and loving someone for so many years, time isn’t really a factor. There was the perfect amount of emotional inner debates for me as I can often find myself skim reading other romance novels - no where near the case here. ...more

Saul is in a tough place in his life and who better to be there for him than his best friend, Lowri. But at the time these friends each realize they have feelings for one another, it is at the same time people from their pasts have realizations of their own. Will their pasts destroy what Saul and Lowri have come to acknowledge about each other? 5-stars.

Catching Saul is the first novel in a new Angela Stevens romance series featuring the members of the affluent Vermont, Chase family.
Saul is the eldest, an acclaimed architect with his own developing business designing and building cabins. He has spent his life so far going through romances in pursuit of true love and happiness, ignoring the person under his nose and at his fingertips for years who was made for him.
Vintage, steamy romance from Angela Stevens. I fell in love with Lowri. For me she

A Sunday Afternoon Indulgence

How many of us have had that friend for whom we’ve felt the pull of attraction, but the timing was never right and then the years slipped by and we think we’ve missed the opportunity? Still it’s hard to let go of what could be….

Angela Stevens book, Catching Saul, is a sweet romance between best friends, Saul and Lowri, who have known each other since junior high. They’re now 30 and Saul has just broken up with his fiancé. Both have cared for each other for years but

A great friends to lovers read, focusing on the relationship between long term friends Saul ,and Lowri. Saul is engaged to be married but gets dumped by his fiancé and turns to Lowri. Lowri has been keeping secrets from Saul, and it was fascinating to see their relationship change and develop into more lovers than friends. A guaranteed ‘happy ever after’, this was a fun read and great escapism. I happily spent the weekend in Saul and Lowri’s company; I can’t wait for the next book in the series.

An amazing friends to lovers romance! 💞💗🔥💞

I adore this book! 😍

Saul and Lowri have been best friends since she was fifteen. They've been there for each other through everything... well, not quite everything. Lowri has two secrets that she's kept from Saul. But she's trying to tell him the big one, she just can't find the right time.💖

This book is really well written and has some pretty big twists and turns in it. I found myself really connecting with both characters and going along their emotional

What a lovely start to what I hope will be a long series.

Fast paced and romantic, this book and it all.

I loved the history between Lawri and Saul and could feel their bond from the very beginning.

I'm looking forward to more Chase stories. Hopefully Nate is up next.

Wow a great emotional read. Some books hint & don't deliver but Lowri's secret is big & it's an important issue to raise awareness to. I'm really looking forward to the rest of the series.
If you loved Lemon Drops & Love you'll like this book too.

I was already a fan of this author's paranormal fantasy series, so I knew I could rely on her writing style and storytelling. I love true romance and there is plenty here, with a solid plot to give it substance. The story gravitates around two well-developed characters, best friends, Lowri and Saul. The reader is taken along on their exploration of their relationship. There are twists as secrets from Lowri's past pop up and she struggles with her troublesome addict brother, Charlie. Things escal ...more

Lauri and Saul had been best friends since forever and told each other everything and supported each other. Only one thing they never told the other - that they wanted more than just friendship, but did not dare to risk it, afraid of losing the friend.
When Saul's fiancée leaves him just shortly before the wedding, Lauri moves in with him to help him make the transition. Living together brings back all the feelings they tried to hide and finally they come out.
A really nice story - well-written an

This is the first book in this series, but I am reading it third and found it is a standalone with some overlapping characters. Saul is just a great guy from a wonderful family. Lowri not so much. And she has secrets she’s keeping from Saul and no one she can really call family, including her brother. I enjoyed the three I have read and I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series. Most of the characters could be real people you know. There is some action and some sex, but the story of ...more

It’s a good thing Lowri shares Saul's family! Elaine, Saul's fiance dumps him and returns to her ex, Kelvin. Lowri returns from chaperoning Saul's baby sister on a six month tour. Elaine has crushed on Saul who she's known for 17 years. Saul is absolutely oblivious although he checks her out. Elaine has a couple of secrets which may/not affect any more involved relationship she may have with Saul. This was a delightful story. Saul's family is fun, loving and amazing. In other words, a typical fa ...more

I found this novel a satisfying, quick and easy read. The characters and story are engaging right from the start, and their actions don’t feel unrealistic or very badly-judged. I was really rooting for Saul and Lowri from the start and as I don’t want to give any spoilers, I’ll just say the plot was more exciting than I expected - some parts of the story had me gripped, and I read the whole book in one day.

I hope to read more about the Chase brothers (and sister and mother!) in future instalment

Romantic at heart

This has so many things that are great about it that I couldn't not give it 4*. The characters were well written. They had depths that made me feel an emotional bond towards them. Lowri was an interesting characters because she kept many things hidden but claimed that Saul was her best friend. I felt bad for Saul because her secrets could hurt him. The family was so cool and so supportive. Overall a great book

Slow and drags on forever!

Not really my cup of tea. I liked it at first. What I thought was annoying was when the hero slept with his ex even though he realizes that he was in love with his best friend. Ugh. I could not finish this book. Sorry. I hate alot of drama and this book had too much drama. Too much love triangles. Annoying as heck. I just want to say to the author that she needs to learn how to edit and pare down

He was dumped just a month before his wedding and he turns to his best friend who had always been there. There was just one rule never have sex with her. Then he thinks any not get together but he is about to learn she had kept three secrets from him. What are they? Can he forgive ner? See what will happen
