“I can’t be the one to rescue you. You have to save yourself.”

I never expected Alicia Martin to walk back into my life. Not after the way she left. Not after her letter. Yet here she is, more alluring than ever, and with a secret that flips my world on its axis.

Three years ago I would have done anything to be with her, but now things are different. Complicated. I have a l

I'm the author of Caught in Us and I am so happy release day is here! This duet was my personal Everest. There were so many things life threw at me, and I wasn't sure I'd ever finish Chase and Alicia's story. What resulted is this book--one I am so proud of and one that not only completes the story, but finalizes a series I've been writing for five years!

There will be a bonus epilogue available to my newsletter subscribers next week and even though this is the final book in the "Caught" series,

(audiobook) With the way the previous book ended, I didn’t know what to expect. It wasn’t this. It doesn’t mean it wasn’t good though.

Alicia broke up with Chase and ran away because she was afraid he would relapse. And she stay away for three years for the same reason. But she left with a little souvenir. As much as she justifies it, I couldn’t get behind her. It was kind of hypocritical. Sure, she knows something about relapse, since she did, but she has no reason to think she wouldn’t again. A

Kacey Shea, what have you done to my heart? Will I ever recover from the angst wounds in my heart after reading Caught in Us? Will I ever get down from the emotional high full of swoon, heartbreak, second chance goodness and all consuming true love? Only time will tell but right now, I can only ask you not to miss this brilliantly written epic second chance romance.

You have to read the first book of Alicia and Chase, Caught in the Chase first. Three years have passed since Alicia left Chase with

Oh my gosh. I knew this book would obliterate my heart and then slowly put the pieces back together, but I was in NO WAY prepared for the pain and beauty Kacey Shea put me through. Hold my tears, this is going to be a long and gushing review!

So first things first, this is NOT a standalone, and you must read Caught In The Chase first. You won't be able to fully understand/connect to Alicia and Chase if you don't. This book picks up three years after Alicia left to pursue her dreams, and Chase is

This book is the conclusion of Chase and Alicia’s story, which started in Caught in the Chase. So you really must read that book before you start this one. It is also the fourth entry in the Caught series. These books do feature interconnected stories and while you can enjoy each of the couple's romances as a standalone, I think you will have a much deeper and more pleasurable reading experience if you read them all and in the order recommended by the author.

The conclusion to Alicia and Chase’s story that began in Caught in the Chase. It is also the fourth book in an interconnected series. I would recommend starting at the beginning.

As Caught in the Chase was an emotional journey, this book begins three years later but just as emotional. Be prepared for angst, drama, secrets, and twists, buttoned up for a beautiful ending. Alternating past and present, we get to catch up on the missing years. I mostly loved the flaws of Alicia and Chase, th

This is an ARC review. All opinions are solely my own.

Caught in Us by Kacey Shea is the follow up book to Caught in the Chase. I thoroughly enjoyed the first book and I can honestly say I didn't know what twist this book was going to take. For the record: I AM HERE FOR IT!! This series must be read in order to fully appreciate the story.

Alicia is returning to Richmond for a friend's wedding and to mend some relationships. The only relationship she hopes to leave where it is, is the one that coul

Caught in Us is the conclusion to Chase & Alicia's story so YOU HAVE TO READ Caught in the Chase (Book 1) FIRST! It's been three years since Alicia left Chase to follow her dreams over the pond, and maybe just maybe to take care of herself. She's home to attend one of her best friend's wedding to Chase's brother and yes, it's very complicated & emotional from the jump as Alicia had cut off everyone who mattered to her. Chase is doing great, and has even moved on or so he thought, but since she's ...more
This was the absolute perfect ending for Alicia and Chase! Caught in the Chase had such a cliffhanger, so I was very excited to see whether Chase managed to keep his demons quiet and why Alicia felt she leave for England. Chase totally has the ultimate redemption, he definitely came a long way since book 1. I wanted to dislike Alicia because she jumped to a BIG conclusion in the last book and also was waaaaay too secretive with everyone, but by the end of the book she managed to mostly redeem he ...more

Caught in Us is the conclusion to Chase and Alicia's story that we have anxiously been waiting for. Their story is not all hearts and flowers but what it is, is an emotional heart wrenching love story that will grab hold of your heart and soul and at times squeeze so hard that you will be left breathless. This part of their story takes place three years later and with it come secrets, revelations, regret, doubt and emotions so intense that they will shock you to the core. Two broken souls that m ...more

Well what can I say?! This was as epic as I knew it would be!
Chase and Alicia's conclusion was everything. Everything!!
I don't cope well with cliffhangers so how I lasted I have no idea but I can say hand on heart that it was worth the wait.
The change in Chase was incredible! He completely turned his life around and there was no trace of the man we saw in the beginning.
This read did more than pull on the heartstrings, it obliterated them and then slowly and carefully pieced them back together.
Emotional. Intense. Powerful. Passionate. This is a great continuation of the "Caught” Series and the second book showcasing Chase and Alicia's journey. The power of their connection (before and after the reveal) and their transformation, redemption, undeniable love and devotion took my breath away. Kacey's writing, plot and dialogue is superb. I loved the angst...the happily ever after was Chase and Alicia finding each other and discovering that they would rather have each other... "the one who ...more
Continuation of Chase and Alicia's story!

3 years have passed since Alicia left for London. Alicia is back for her first visit home since she left for Cam and Jill's wedding. Things have changed and both Alicia and Chase have moved on ..... or have they really?

secrets come to light and your heart will be held on by a thread at certain points but this was an incredible ending to this couple's book! The journey of finding their way back isn't easy but the love and devotion is fierce. Such a capti

I loved this poignant but beautiful conclusion of Chase and Alicia’s story! Alicia return's home after 3 years away from her friends and family with a surprise no one saw coming. Chase has worked hard to make a new life for himself and to be a man he can be proud of. He even thought he was in love until Alicia walks back into his life. Now he can't stop thinking of her. Alicia isn't sure about her place with her family and friends, feeling like an outsider, that she brought on herself. But now t ...more

This is the conclusion to the duet and wow what a conclusion.
The book starts 3 years after Caught in the Chase and Alicia has returned for Cam and Jill's wedding.
Her feelings for Chase are still there but he has moved on and is now in a relationship.
When they first meet the chemistry is still there but what will happen when he finds out the big secret she has been keeping.
The book is full of emotion and plenty of drama but can they get their hea.
An absolute must read.

Teddy and Savannah really brought these characters to life. Such a great job telling the final chapters of Chase and Alicia’s story. ( audiobook)
Chase and Alicia meet again and comes with some surprises and questions. My heart was full and happy at the end. Kacey Shea did a great job balancing the Angst and love. As always no shortage of family and friend craziness and loyalty. 5 stars across the board.
I received a advance copy for a voluntary honest review.

What an emotional conclusion to Chase and Alicia's story! This was an emotional, slow burn, make you want to punch these characters a few times (Alicia I'm looking at you ) read.

This is the conclusion of Chase and Alicia's story. A real, heart-wrenching one. It was beyond good. I could not put it down. I felt so many emotions reading their story. But I was so invested in their story no matter how heartbreaking it was. I just couldn't help but read to find out what happened to these two. ...more

Caught In Us is the conclusion to Chase and Alicia's story. This book picks exactly where the previous book left off. These two made me want to shake the so badly. The tension in this book is palpable and the steam is off the charts. I'm glad these two for their stuff together. I can't wait to see what Kacey Shea has for us next. ...more

Wow real emotional rollercoaster. This is part 2 of Alicia and Chase's story and cannot be read as a stand alone, you need to read Caught on Chase first.

3 years after Caught on Chase, Alicia and Chase find themselves back in thier home town getting ready for Alicia's best friends wedding. Chase has managed to move on in his life and the last person he expected to see again was Alicia. But, she doesn't arrive back alone !!

Caught in Us…give me a beat…wow. Okay maybe I’m ready. I read caught in the Chase and Caught in Us back to back because honestly there is no other way to read it. Caught in the Chase destroyed my heart. I was devastated in the worst way. I ugly cried and wanted to throw things. But I then gather my wits about me and dove into Caught in Us head first with my heart dangling from my chest cavity. I’m so glad I did. So many secrets. So much betrayal and heartache.

Caught up in it all!!!

I am going to write this review about all 4 books in the “Caught Up” series! Each book added to the whole story! Alicia & Chase…. What a mixed-up mess their lives were! We saw that mistakes, and bad moments happened, but they don’t control our lives! The issue of sobriety was so interwoven into their story, the consequences of being out of control of one’s life! We saw and felt their struggles… we saw Maverick forgive his friend, and through Chase he didn’t give up! Alcohol

Second Chance at Love!

Caught in US: It's sad what they have been through but everything has made Chase and Alicia stronger. It was a great continuation of what they have been through. It was a very emotional story but I really enjoyed it.

This duet is so well written and one I highly recommend. This is book two and the rest of Chase and Alicia's story. Book one left us with Alicia leaving the country and Chase left to pick up his heart and to continue with his struggles to heal and find his future. When Alicia comes back for Jill and Cam's wedding there is a lot that has happened in the three years she has been gone and the secrets she has kept from all of them may blow up in her face.

These characters are so loveable and I can't

Three years earlier after a whirlwind romance and a setback that neither Chase nor Alicia saw coming she decided the best course of action for both of them was to distance herself from him and the situation. She is back in town for her best friend’s wedding to face everyone she left behind and even if she is no longer the same woman her feelings for Chase haven’t diminished.

Chase is no longer the same man and is content with the new life he has created for himself until Alicia comes back into to
