I feel like I’m the last person to arrive at a Chase family picnic since there are already so many great and rave reviews for Dane’s Chase Brothers series, but I’m glad I made a last minute appearance for this shindig because it was well worth it!
Giving Chase is the first book in a feel good, love conquers all contemporary romance series about the four hunky Chase Brothers (Kyle, Shane, Marc, and Matt) of small town Petal, Georgia and their loving ...more

Maggie has a run in with the sheriff Shane, the oldest Chase brother. They have a few sassy words. You think at first she and Shane are going to get together but Shane, after a few dates, is basical ...more
1. All of the characters in the story are emotionally immature. Sometimes I feel like they're all 16 and not the mid-twenties that they actually are.
2. The dialogues are horrific!
3. Having you ...more
All day long I have wanted to finish this book. I wanted to say, "Ummm kids...Ms. Shellie needs a Time Out for a hour or so" but instead I ended up taking 15 ADHD kids swimming...lol
I won't get into this book to much because most of my dear friends here have already written some wonderful things about this book. I TOTALLY a ...more

When Shane, one of the town hotties, asks her on a date, she accepts. They go on a few dates that involves kissing, groping etc. (And ...more
I tried but it was just too cringe worthy. After reading the blurb and getting through a few chapters I thought I somehow got the wrong book. The blurb says the story is about Kyle Chase and Maggie but Maggie spends a quarter of the book (granted thats as far as I was able to stomach, but still!) mooning over another man!!! The OM also happens to be the supposed hero’s brother, Shane!!!
This is a hard line for me. I hate when siblings double dip. Its not for me.
After the follow ...more

Okay got this one today from B&N!! Could not wait till I could read it. I am in love with the Chase brothers. Just gotta get the rest of them in the house. truely a keeper for my shelves.
Maggie has been put down all her life from her Mother and sister. Just reading what her mother and sister said to Maggie, I wanted to B*T^H slap both of them. Noone should ever be belittled the way they did her. Just set my teeth on edge.
Maggie first went out with the oldest brother Shane, but tha ...more
A sweet romance between the nerdy high school teacher and one (or two) of the four gorgeous Chase brothers. Giving Chase by Lauren Dane is the first in the Chase Brothers series and this newly refreshed version has me anxious to read more of the series.

Note: I received my free copy of Giving Chase in June 2011. Giving Chase has been on Mt. TBR for 5 years and 1 month so it qualifies for my Mt. TBR challenge AND my Kindle Freebie Freakout Challenge!!
Giving Chase was pretty "meh" for me. I didn't care for a lot of the plot lines but I'm reading this series to prep myself for the series after (OCD, thy name is MrsJ).
To be honest, there's a lot I didn' ...more
It's one of those stories that leaves you feeling warm and happy afterwards. The hero is PERFECT, the heroine is a spitfire!
I am anxious to get the next in the series!
2nd read 3/13/11 - loved it just as much the second read. It truly is a feel good read the second time too. Thanks Ms. Dane!
if ever there were an example how how a writer can grow over the years.
3.5 STARS out of 5
Genre: Contemporary Romance
What an adorable love story sometimes I find that adorable is just what I need.
Maggie Wright is a high school teacher in her hometown of Petal, Georgia. In comparison to her mother and sister Janie, Maggie believes her looks to be lower than average. She dresses in clothes a size to big and keeps her beautiful long mane of strawberry blond locks secured in a bun. Toss in the fact that she sports out of date style glas ...more
"3.5 stars" Giving Chase is the first book in Lauren Dane's Chase Brothers series and the first I've read by her. The story had a lot of potential, and I can see why some fans really enjoyed it. The Chase family provides a wonderfully loving, heart-warming atmosphere, the characters are likable, and there's just enough suspense on the side to keep things interesting. However, the technical aspects of the writing itself could have used a lot more polish. Either this book w ...more
The story was about Maggie, a teacher who has no self-confidence towards herself. She's really pretty and has a big heart,though, but her mother spent most of her life to tell the opposite to her, told her how she envied her sister Jane's beauty, and all. It's not true. She started to think that she's not pretty compared to Jane, and all men will fall for Jane instead of her.
But one day,her best friends Liv and Dee do a little magic to her, change h ...more
Maggie is the stereotypical glasses wearing, plain-Jane that catches the eye of all the yummy Chase brothers when her girlfriend decides to give her a make-over. It's after she's been blown off by one of the brothers that Kyle Chase steps in and makes his move. I really liked Kyle and Maggie together...there was never any of the push/pull or back and forth between them, that is so often incorporated into stories like this. No him pushing her away fo ...more
I probably would have given it five shars, had Kyle been a bit more... I don't know, rough I guess! After reading so many paranormal, alpha male, beating on chest, she my woman, I her man kind of books... he just seemed... nice. LOL, wow, that sounds funny but it's the truth. I wanted him to take charge ...more
