The Chase by Elle Kennedy

The Chase

Everyone says opposites attract. And they must be right, because there’s no logical reason why I’m so drawn to Colin Fitzgerald. I don’t usually go for tattoo-covered, video-gaming, hockey-playing nerd-jocks who think I’m flighty and superficial. His narrow view of me is the first strike against him. It doesn’t help that he’s buddy-buddy with my brother.And that his best friend has a crush on me.And that I just moved in with them.Oh, ...

Reviews The Chase

  • Cristina | CristiinaReads
    ➳Wanting and chasing for what he cannot have, Fitzy finds himself enamored and enthralled with what is the sunshine that radiates from Summer in this compelling college romance... ➳Everyone who knows me, knows that my love for anything that is Elle Kennedy is immense. Especially when it comes down to the Briar boys that captivated my heart back in 2015 with their unique mindsets and creative personas. My god did I miss all my Briar boys and a...

    ARC provided to me by the author in exchange for an honest review.#1.) The Deal ★★★★#2.) The Mistake ★★★#3.) The Score ★★★★#4.) The Goal ★ “I feel like too many girls fail to remember one vital truth: we deserve someone who gives us one hundred percent. Half-assed effort isn’t effort. Half-assed love isn’t love.” Elle Kennedy and her steamy hockey romances are back. And, like, what a damn blessing. This is the ha...

    Narrator: On August 5, 2018, Katerina peacefully finished The Chase. She went to the beach, she was sunburned and ended up looking like a roasted Thanksgiving turkey, she ate seafood with the light summer breeze rustling her hair, and life was simply perfect. Until she got a summons to the Prosecutor's office. *light knock on the door*Prosecutor: *without lifting his head* Come in, Miss Katerina.Me: How did you know it was me?Prosecutor: It was...

    The Chase is book one in the new series, Briar U by Elle Kennedy. This is a new adult spin off from her Off Campus series which I have not read. I don’t feel, though, that not having read the other series took away from this book at all. Summer De Laurentis comes from a wealthy family. Yes she likes her designer clothes and yes she doesn’t mind some of the advantages her life has afforded her. But she also wants to be seen for who she is. Sum...

    4 stars!! Elle Kennedy is one of my favorite new adult authors, so when I saw she was coming out with a new series, I couldn't wait. I was especially excited when I heard the hero would be Fitzy- AKA Collin Fitzgerald. Fitzy is a character from her Off-Campus series, but it's not necessary to read those first (even though you should because they're EPIC).Summer Heyward-Di Laurentis is Dean's little sister. She's beyond wealthy and is starting a n...

    MY REVIEW can also be found on my blog: KITTY KATS CRAZY ABOUT BOOKS THE CHASE: Is the first full length New Adult novel in ‘Elle Kennedy’s ‘Briar U #1’ A spin off from the Off Campus Series. Spoken in 'Dual Perspectives' ➽ Fitzy is short for Colin Fitzgerald, and he just happens to be THE UNICORN.The tall, sexy, tattooed, hockey-playing unicorn of a man who I might have a teeny-weeny-itsy bitsy crush on.Okay, fine.A big motherfuck...
  • Lana ❇✾Dirty Girl Romance❇✾
    4 STARS She brings out a growly, primal side of me I hadn’t known existed until she showed up and started driving me batshit crazy. And…I frickin’ love it. Opposites attract in this brand new spin-off series and I frickin' loved it! See what I did there? Alright, that was entirely too cheesy but I simply couldn't resist. As much as I loved Dean in The Score, I knew without a shadow of a doubt that I'd love his younger sister, Summer. She...

    I can’t even begin to tell you guys how long I’ve been waiting for this book to happen. 😭 So it’s safe to say that my expectations were really high. Out of all the stories I’ve been dying to read, Summer and Fitzy definitely take the cake. Unfortunately, and it pains me to say this, but... it fell a little short for me.It was the slowest burn of slow burn romances. We don’t get much action until 70 percent or so in. And after waiting...
  • Angie - Angie's Dreamy Reads
    5 STARS because I read this in one day. 5 STARS because I never wanted it to end. 5 STARS because I just lost myself in this novel. 5 STARS because it has the sweetest romance. 5 STARS because Summer is the ultimate, the best. 5 STARS because Fitzy just STOLE my heart. 5 STARS because it's hot as fuck. 5 STARS because when it comes to New Adult books, Elle Kennedy just RULES. There's nothing better. 5 STARS because this book reminded me why I lov...

    |ARC kindly sent by the author in exchange of an honest review| Have you ever felt like finally coming home from a very long day and just having a good cup of tea and relax with a good book? Well, this is THE book to do it. I was intrigued by how this story was going to unsolved. I had utter faith in Elle, so I knew I’d love this book and, boy, I did. Not only it was the story itself great -full of cool and endearing characters you want to roo...
  • Geri Reads
    This is probably one of the most difficult reviews that I have to write this year. For one, 3-star reviews are always difficult to write. And two, I love everything Elle Kennedy writes except this one. I didn't dislike it or hate it. I just didn't LOVE it even though I was expecting to.The Chase is the first book from Kennedy's new Briar U series. If the name of the series sounds familiar to you, it should since it's the spin off of her popular a...

    *I received a copy of this book from the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review.* ❝ I don't want to be with a woman who hides in the shadows with me, because that enables me to keep hiding. And that's what I've done for years—hidden pieces of myself from my parents, my friends, chicks, the world. I want someone who encourages me to step out of my comfort zone, and Summer is that someone.❞ THE BRIAR UNIVERSITY BOYS ARE BACK.......
  • Rachel Reads Ravenously
    3.5 stars I love Elle Kennedy and I have loved almost everything she’s ever written. When I heard she was coming out with a new book that she wrote alone I was beyond excited and when the arc landed on my kindle I dived in right away. I loved Summer as a main character, she had such spark and personality and such life. Kennedy’s writing style is also something I love because I could fall effortlessly into the story. Reading her books never fe...

    Why did I even bother?...On the other hand I learned some new shades of TSTL-ishness or was it desperate patheticness??..

    5 Stars!(ARC provided by author) Summer Heyward-Di Laurentis is from Connecticut, and has a wealthy family of successful lawyers. She's a fashion major who just transferred from Brown to Briar University. Starting over at a new school is proving more difficult than she anticipated as she suddenly finds herself in need of a place to live. Her brother Dean arranges for her to stay in his old house. She is now living with three gorgeous hockey playe...
  • Stacey is Sassy
    I was captivated by The Chase…I judged Summer and I’m not proud of myself. To be honest, I don’t think I will be the first or the last reader to do so. It’s hard to look at an extremely beautiful, rich and vivacious woman, with a family who loves and protects her, and not think that she has everything. What could she possibly have to complain about? I became judge and jury finding her guilty of being a bit of fluff, a princess and a spoil...
  • Megan✦❋Steamy Reads Blog❋✦
    “She’s the one girl he shouldn’t want…” If there is one thing Elle Kennedy knows how to do and I mean do phenomenally well, it is write amazing sports/college romances. I fell in love with her storytelling way back when I read her Off-Campus series, which is still one of my favorite sports romance series of all time. Her latest story, The Chase, kept me fully invested from start to finish with Elle’s signature smart and witty writing...

    3 StarsOverall Opinion: I'll admit it...My name is Jenny, and I have an addiction for college athlete stories! After reading Elle Kennedy's Off Campus series, I knew I had to jump right in with this book and start off a new series. I didn't hate it at all, but I just sadly didn't love it or even like it as much as most of the books in that other series. I think it had the potential to be a lot deeper. Especially with Summer's learning disability ...

    *****FOUR STARS*****{ARC Generously Provided by Author}I have been dying to read the latest by Elle Kennedy. Sports romances with hockey players are high up on my list of favorites and the ”OFF CAMPUS” series is still my most beloved of Elle Kennedy’s works. THE CHASE, the first installment of ”BRIAR U” was missing the comedic flair I’ve come to expect from this author's sports romances. The “MeToo” movement was very much an influ...

    Just awesome. Bring on the next one!
  • Astrid - The Bookish Sweet Tooth
    READ MY REVIEW ON THE BLOGShe is, hands down, one of my top three favorite NA authors. Elle Kennedy writes them like few others and I. JUST. CAN'T GET. ENOUGH. When I heard that Fitzy would get his story I would have dropped everything to read his story. I wouldn't have been above begging for an ARC. Good thing I didn't have to (but I'll keep my options open definitely for the next in this series). God. This Girl. Summer was THE. BEST. You know, ...

    I've rated this an B+ for AAR which is equal to 4.25 stars.Elle Kennedy returns to the new adult hockey romance world with The Chase, a spinoff from her Off-Campus series, that is set to launch at least two (please more) books into the much loved setting of Briar University. While there are returning characters and a few events referenced, as well as some pre-existing dynamics from the previous series, The Chase can be read as a standalone. How...
  • Sabrina
    NOW LIVE!Amazon US * Amazon UKThe Chase is the first book in the Briar U series, a spin off from the Off-Campus books, and follows Summer Di Laurentis, little sister to Dean from The Score. Our first impression of Summer was that she was an off the walls party girl that just didn't care about her actions, which is also what Colin Fitzgerald thought of her at first too. He thought a girl like Summer would never be interested in a gaming nerd/hocke...

    4.5 sweet penis stars This book has been unquestionably at the top of my most anticipated reads for what feels like forever. And holy blondie did Elle Kennedy deliver. This is one of the reasons why her books, particularly her college sports romances, are some of my absolute favorites—they’re just the whole freaking package. You get the panty-dropping, smoldering hot athletes; the fierce, witty heroines; the bellyaching humor; the crackling t...

    I think it’s safe to say that everyone and their momma was awaiting the arrival of The Chase. Plans were made, wines were restocked, and hockey jerseys were custom made just for the sake of this book. I mean who doesn’t want to read about a tatted up gamer nerd hockey player and the infamous Dean Di laurentis fashionista little sister? “ A woman isn't defined by her boyfriends. She’s defined by her achievements. And her shoes.” If you...

    Originally posted at Booklovers For LifeOHHH MY GOD. I loooved The Chase!! Elle Kennedy’s Off-Campus series is one of my favorite college/new adult/sports romance series ever, so the anticipation for its spinoff series was REAL.

I literally had a smile on my face the whole time I was reading them. And these ne...
