When the chase ends, the fun begins…

It's her best friend's wedding, and Autumn Lane is trussed up in a pink bridesmaid dress with a big “everything is great” smile plastered across her face. She's not going to think about her life imploding, or spending the next two weeks housesitting in the ridiculously small town of Diamond. No, she'd rather think about the tattooed hottie in the wedding party...and how to turn the wicked way he’s looking at her into a night of intense pleasure.

Huck Galvin is fiercely attracted to his mystery woman's no-BS attitude, but their one-night-no-strings plan backfires when Huck discovers that Autumn is the out-of-towner he's “chaperoning” for the next two weeks. Outside the bedroom, the two can’t stand each other, yet Huck can’t deny how much he wants one more night with her. But Autumn isn't going to make it easy for Huck. Not by a long shot...

The saying of never judge a book by it’s cover is perfect for Huck Galvin and Autumn Lane.  Huck has the looks of a bad boy, with tattoos and piercings, but he’s actually a good guy who’s hiding a sweet side.  Autumn is drop dead gorgeous with a biker chick vibe and is more at home under the hood of a car than a dress and heels.  She likes to pretend that she’s all tough, but she’s as soft as a marshmallow.  

Huck and Autumn are two characters who are so imperfect, they’re perfect for each other.  Both have had people they care about break their hearts and leave them.  They’re emotionally broken and do their best to keep people at a distance.

There is no denying that passion exists between them.  But outside of the bedroom, they are like cats and dogs.  They have two weeks to be brave and bold enough to ask for what they truly desire, at the risk of yet another broken heart.

I really liked Chasing Desire and Huck and Autumn.  I loved their story and the back and forth banter between the two and their friends.  The Chasing Love Series is truly a wonderful series.  However, I didn’t find the story to be as hot and heavy as the previous books in the series.  There’s definitely sex in the book, but I felt this was more a story of two people getting over past hurts and a journey towards the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow.  If you’re looking for a book with two characters you can root for and adore, Chasing Desire is definitely for you.
