Synopsis: College drop-out, Roxy Cumberland, moved to New York with dreams of becoming an actress, but her dwindling bank account is quickly putting the kibosh on that fantasy. To make some quick cash, she signs up to perform singing telegrams. Her first customer is a gorgeous, cocky Manhattan trust-funder if she ever laid eyes on one. And what could be more humiliating than singing an ode to his junk, courtesy of his last one night stand? Maybe the fact that she’s dressed in a giant, pink bunny costume…
After a night out to celebrate winning his last case, lawyer Louis McNally II isn’t prepared for the pounding in his head or the rabbit serenading him from the front door. But the sassy wit and sexy voice of the girl behind the mask intrigues him, and one look at her stunning face—followed by a mind-blowing kiss against his doorjamb—leaves Louis wanting more.
Roxy doesn’t need a spoiled rich boy who’s had everything in life handed to him on a Tiffany platter. But there’s more to Louis than his sexy surface and he’s determined to make Roxy see it…even if it means chasing her all over NYC.
Thank you, Tessa Bailey. I read Chase Me in two days! Two days!! I haven’t read a book in two days in I can’t remember how long. That is just how fantastically Tessa Bailey this book is. I admit, I’m slightly biased towards her books because (in my opinion) I have yet to read a bad one. I know every time I pick one up, I’m going to get a nothing-held-back, drama-filled, and brilliant book that I just love and Chase Me is all of that and more.
We start off with two people from very different worlds. Roxy, who has had to work her butt off, and not necessarily the best jobs, for everything she’s wanted in life and Louis who, well, pretty much has had everything handed to him. When these two meet in a very non-traditional way, neither of them can seem to stay away from each other. With Roxy, I love that she never gives up and the fact that she always has her eye on the prize of what she wants in life. She refuses to let anything or anything take that away from her. On Louis’ side, he’s definitely got the whole rich, good-looks, and charm going for him. I like that Tessa didn’t overly dazzle him and just let his and Roxy’s story unfold.
There’s a lot of bits of story line I like that Tessa touches on. I expected a straight hot-to-trot love story, but it focuses a lot on a couple story lines I wasn’t expecting and that’s always a treat in any book when it makes the story that much more eventful. Overall another winner from Tessa Bailey and I cannot wait to read the next book in the story line, Need Me.
