Chased By Love was a very enjoyable read. I truly loved this book. I got swept up in the story and the characters. Even though this is part of a series, this is the first book in that series that I have read and I don’t feel like I missed anything. I also didn’t feel like this book spoiled any of the previous novels. I do know that after reading this book I plan to go back and read the other books in this series. I loved the Ryder clan 🙂
What I loved the most about this book was that Melissa gave us a book that was a fun and sexy beach read, but also had a strong message behind it. She was able to hit all my emotions. The connection between Trish and Boone made me smile, swoon and laugh. But the background story of Boone is what tugged at my heartstrings. She does touch on a tough topic in this book. She shows us the harsh side of addiction and what it does not only to the person with the addiction but those who love and support those people.
“ Addictions are powerful, and once they take hold, it’s a wonder anyone can break free from them.”…. Trish
Along with addiction, Melissa also showed us the importance of looking beyond a person outside and getting to know the real person on the inside. Boone is a musician who had perfected the craft of building a “fake” persona for his fans. He does this as a way to protect his family and friends. That is until he meets Trish and she sees past his facade.
“ Sometimes we have to look beyond the camouflage to get to the heart of things.”… Trish
I loved the connection between Trish and Boone. They had their share of ups and downs. And things that would normally push them apart, but what was a refreshing switch was how functional Melissa made this couple. Instead of running away all the time like we usually see, Trish and Boone stayed and worked things out. I thought that was great. Now I know some will say this book lacked drama that keeps the reader on the edge of their seat, but to me it had just the right amount of drama to keep me turning the pages, but it also made the couple feel realistic. Trish was such an amazing heroine. I truly loved her!!! Boone was an amazing Hero as well and talk about swoon worthy…..he was!!!!
“ While the physical worlds we come from may differ, the things that matter most – morals and values, family, friends – aren’t so different after all.” … Trish
I would 100% recommend this book. If you are looking for that fun, sexy and sweet love story, that also touches on some serious stuff but isn’t loaded down with over the top drama, then this is the book to read.

Unwilling to give him the upper hand, she flashed a haughty smirk and returned his assessment with a lecherous leer of her own, drinking in every inch of his athletic build, from his bulging biceps to the ripped abs evident beneath his clingy shirt, all the way to the formidable package at the juncture of his powerful thighs. She lingered there, brazenly licking her lips.
He leaned in close—so close she thought he might kiss her. And damn it to hell, she wanted him to. Lust and challenge pulsed between them, thick and alive like a third heart.
