Given his well-earned bad boy reputation, Eric is having a tough time scoring. When single Jean moves to town, she seems heaven sent by the sex gods. Only problem is, she not only wants nothing to do with him, but it turns out that she’s pregnant.
Starting over in a small town, Jean is determined to turn her wild lifestyle around and be the kind of mother she always wished she’d had. Since local bar owner and all round hottie, Eric Collins, is now determined to steer clear of her pregnant self, it should be easy. When she goes into labour during a snow storm and her car slides on some ice, it’s Eric who comes to the rescue.
There seems to be a bond between them now, but is it enough? And can Eric give up his manwhore ways to be the man Jean needs?
I’m not going to lie, I expected a lot from Chaser. And while what I read was satisfactory, it was just that: satisfactory. I’m a little let down, but not completely. There are a couple of things that I enjoyed about Chaser. Like how the slow burn romance draws you in. And the character development was staggering. Seeing Eric do a complete 180 character turn (for the better), was a sigh to behold. I like that we saw how Eric acted around Jean and Ada. I liked seeing him be soft, and not have his friends and family expect the lowest of lows of Eric 24/7.
Of course, seeing the band again was great. Seeing how their stories are progressing was incredibly heartwarming. And as per usual, their antics made me laugh out loud.
Overall, while Chaser wasn’t what I had expected it to be, I still liked reading Eric’s story.
I give Chaser, 3 stars.
