Together they find a special love-can it survive the threat stalking her? Some small towns grow really good looking men! This is the case with the four Chase brothers. The home grown hotties are on the wishlist of every single woman in town and Maggie Wright is no exception.Giving Chase is book 1 in Lauren Dane's Chase Brothers series. I haven't read the fourth (and final) book yet, but so far this is my favorite of the series.
Maggie has finally had it with the men she's been dating but a spilled plate of chili cheese fries drops Shane Chase right into her lap. The sheriff is hot stuff but was burned by a former fiancée and is quite happy to play the field.
After Shane's skittishness sends him out the door, Maggie realizes that Kyle Chase has had his eye on her from the start. Now that Shane has messed up, Kyle has no intention of letting anything stop him from wooing her right into his bed.
Despite Maggie's happiness and growing love with Kyle, a dark shadow threatens everything-she's got a stalker and he's not happy at all. In the end, Maggie will need her wits, strength and the love of her man to get her out alive.
Warning: This book contains the following: explicit sex, graphic language, and some violent situations.
Maggie is a teacher who hasn't ever really let her hair down. She loves what she does, but isn't very confident in herself. After yet another relationship ended badly her best friend talks her into a makeover and Maggie is amazed at the way some new clothes and a hair style make her feel. Especially after she attracts the attention of super sexy sheriff Shane Chase. Unfortunately Shane isn't looking for anything more than a good time..and Maggie is definitely in the market for something much different.
Kyle had his eye on Maggie the moment he saw her, but since Shane asked her out first he backed off. When things end between Shane and Maggie, Kyle knows he wants a chance with her. Unlike his older brother, Kyle is looking for something long term and he thinks Maggie might be the one. But after what happened with Shane Maggie is feeling pretty gun-shy about men in general and Chase men in particular.
I really loved Kyle. I love that he was upfront and honest about what he wanted with Maggie. He didn't shy away from making a commitment I was a bit leery of the storyline after reading the blurb because I'm mildly uncomfortable with the idea of brothers dating the same woman. I think Dane really handled that aspect well, though. Kyle was very respectful of the situation and was upfront with both Shane and Maggie about it. It wasn't just glossed over or brushed aside. It was dealt with in a believable way.
Maggie was a strong character. She suffered from some self-esteem issues in the beginning, but as the novel progressed she really came into her own. I like that she was willing to stand up for herself and refused to compromise herself for a man - not for Shane or Kyle.
Overall this was a great, character driven contemporary novel. I highly recommend it.
