Heroes or heroines who have a child with someone else is not a theme that I typically want to read, but as I won this book for free, I thought I’d take a peek to see if it interested me at all.

However, now I know why I avoid them…. Ethan & Chrissy are 16 and have been dating for 6 months. When story opens, she has told Hero that she is pregnant after they had just had sex. Hero proposes but she tells him she doesn’t want to be a mother. She had planned to abort

This book did not grab me as much as the first one. The set up and premise were good, if a bit far fetched. Ethan is a randy teenager, gets his gf pregnant, she gives up all rights to the baby and he becomes a single father at 16. Highly unusual.
Honor has lost both her parents at a young age. Moves away from her controlling step father to live life on her own terms.
Ethan and Honor initially meet by accident, tempers flare. Second meeting is a surprise to them both.

I liked this book very much. I loved Carson she was amazing. I am not giving it a 5 star because I read this probably 4 days ago and I can't seem to remember why the MC's had a fight at the end of the book. I know they had one but don't know why and I think that just means the book is not memorable.

Chasing and keeping Honor😍

Ethan left us at the end of Saving Meadow with a nice little bombshell....he was sixteen and soon to be a single dad😳 Fast forward eight years and him and Carson are doing well but he’s refused to move on with his life and find a woman to share his and Carson’s life with.

That is until Honor graces his door asking to rent a room in his house🤩 However, as they adjust to life with each other, both their pasts come crashing in. Will they survive their pasts or will it all

I am just loving this series. This is the second book and is just as good if not better than the first one. I just loved Ethan and loved that even at sixteen he stepped up and not only embraced being a dad but put his daughter first and still made something of himself he is an all-around good guy, Honor has had a tough time she lost her mum and did not get on with her stepdad so she leaves with very little and starts fresh, she rents a room from Ethan and it is not long before the sparks start t ...more

Very good series continues

Ethan has been raising his daughter by himself. Him and his extraordinary family have done an awesome job. Carson is such a sweet and loving little girl. Honor becomes everything that Ethan and Carson need and they become everything she's ever dreamed of. There's a crazy man lose though that will shock you.

Charming love story with some pivotal suspense! Another winner from Riley Edwards!

This my fourth Riley Edwards novel! All excellent stories about the Sulivan clan (seems to large to be a family)!this multigenerational and extended family is one we all wish we had for support and backup when needed!
What appealed to me was first single dad Ethan was the perfect parent to precocious 8 year old Carson! Which is sexy by itself, but he is handsome, sexy and a great cop (protector). Honor is the beauti

The Next Generation series is fantastic! I have read all 4 books, out of order and enjoyed them all so much. I would recommend to other readers to read them in order even though each book truly stands alone. Ethan is a young single father. He and his girlfriend got pregnant in high school (which is before this story takes place). His girlfriend didn't want to get married or raise the baby together so Ethan decides to be a single parent with his parents help rather than give his baby up for adopt ...more

Amazingly he conceived a child n at 16 years old man up and she gave all parental rights up n walked away. Ethan didn't date of bring any woman home he only had his daughter to focus on. Hon

Way to make a girl cry Riley...I was doing so good until the freaking end....just Thanks.

Chasing Honor was everything and then some. I truly love The Next Generation and seeing what fine men and women the guys and gals from the 707 series have raised. Ethan is the type of man everyone woman should strive to find. He is responsible, has virtue, is loyal and it doesn’t hurt that he is hot as hell and a cop.

From page one my heart strings were pulled. Chasing Honor was intense, suspenseful and packe

The story of Honor (aka Smalls), Ethan and Carson is a lovely family love story. Ethan is a father at the age of 16 and chooses to keep his daughter when her mother wants to continue her life without them. Through his trials he takes care of, loves and raises a very happy outgoing little girl. Honor is running from a domineering step father and a creepy step brother. When she meets Ethan in the park, he is not pleasant at all, but then she meets him again when she shows up to rent a room from hi ...more

Yowser! Now that is a good book. Chasing Honor by Riley Edwards is a phenomenal romantic suspense. Ms. Edwards has delivered a book that is well-written and stuffed it full of a cast of characters that are lovable and just make this book into a fabulous read. Ethan became a single father at 16 and is now a cop. Honor is a photographer trying to get away from her step-father and step-brother. Ethan and Honor's story is loaded with drama, humor, sizzle, action and suspense. I enjoyed every page of ...more

Such a good book! I enjoyed both the H and h. It was great to catch up with some amazing characters from the prior books. I probably should have gone back and re-read the 707 series to remind myself of all the characters and their connections, but was too anxious to start this one! It was a good story line, not as gritty as the first book in the series though- and that was OK with me.

I felt there could have been more development of the stepfather, stepbrother and baby-mama characters, but it wo

Chasing Honor

OMG! What a story! This is about Ethan and Honor and Carson. Ethan became a dad at 16 and never regretted his decision. Honor was leaving a bad situation and trying to start over after her mother's death. The story is heartbreaking yet thrilling as these two fall in love. It's unfortunate that Honor had to deal with the step-dad and his son. Towards the end, Honor did everything she could to protect Carson and Ethan but in the end, Ethan won. The proposals were so heartwarming I had

Honor knew that it was time for her to be on her own and moved to a small town in Georgia. She was a photographer and she had saved enough money to start a small business. She was smart and sassy and beautiful, and when she stopped in at a local park and saw the perfect picture, and she took it. She sure didn't mean to make that man mad at her for taking the picture, but he was and didn't hesitate to let her know that she had crossed the line. His line ,

I enjoyed the story. Ethan has been a single father since the age of 16. He doesn't trust easily. Ethan meets Honor and is attracted to her and keeps pulling and pushing her. Honor doesn't understand why Ethan keeps running hot and cold. Honor left her stepfathers house to strike out on her own and her stepfather has other plans for her. A wonderful story. What happens between Honor and Ethan. Does Ethan push Honor away for good? a must read

Ethan took on the responsibility of a baby, Carson, at age 16 because his cheerleader girlfriend didn’t want her. It’s been 8 years and he’s now a cop and needs to rent a room to pay for extras. Honor, a photographer, shows up and changes everything. This book is action packed, lots of suspense and lots of tears. It also has an evil dirty politician and his spoiled entitled son, a stubborn hardheaded man, a woman who loves said hardheaded man, a cute too smart kid, family family and

This was an enjoyable story. The plot was interesting and fast-moving, and I did like the romance. However, the hero's lack of communication did get to me after a while, and I hated the nickname "smalls". Also, I wasn't a fan of the end of the epilogue. I am generally not huge on the epilogue setting up the next book somewhat out of the blue, which is what this felt like. Also, I was hoping for a more uplifting ending and not... that. I also figured the next book would have been about different ...more

When Honor met Ethan he was in serious dad more because Honor had taken a picture of his daughter Carson. Then when she went to see about renting a room, there was Ethan again. She did rent the room and it wasn't long before the desire in them both came out. But someone wanted Honor out of his way and came her to wreck her car. Carson was in the back seat, but wasn't injured. Honor wasn't as lucky and had to have surgery. Ethan stayed by her side the whole time. She was his bone deep lo

Chasing Honor kept my interest from the first page to the last. I absolutely loved Ethan and his family. They show what can be accomplished when you have each other. The other side of the spectrum is Honor's politically motivated stepfather and how insane some families can be. As always, I look forward to reading more from this author, who can blend romance and suspense wonderfully.

Well I was disappointed...... in the fact that the book ended! Absolutely FANTASTIC! The love and responsibility of owning his mistakes and loving his daughter unconditionally was beautiful. Having such an amazing family for support was incredible. Honor was the perfect light completing their little family. The bonds they formed together and that of her and his daughter were so strong. There are a couple of unexpected twists in there too. You won't want to put it down. ...more
I was captivated by the relationship Ethan had with his sweet daughter, Carson, and also with the relationship Honor developed with the little girl. Such a sweet family that I couldn’t help but smile.
I always like a twist or two and there were a couple scenes that had me saying “I didn’t see that coming”. Though at the same time, I could have done with less drama that centered around Honor. Honestly, that poor lady went through a lot in just a few chapters. Overall 4.25 Stars
