Making Chase by Lauren Dance

Released: June 24, 2008
Publisher: Samhain Publishing
Rated: Adult

Matt is an expert and the Chase is on. Tate doesn't stand a chance. Book Four In the Chase Brothers Series. Tate Murphy is a girl from the wrong side of the tracks. She grew up a million miles away from the easy life Matt Chase has had. She's spent her life pulling herself and her siblings up and out of that trailer by the railroad tracks and she hasn't looked back. Matt Chase is a dream of a guy and she's certainly not going to turn down a short fling with one of the most handsome men she's ever seen! Matt Chase has watched each one of his brothers find love and he knows he's ready for that too. It's all a matter of finding the woman who captures his heart. He's certainly sampled his fair share of them but none has moved him the way Tate Murphy does when he goes to her shop to thank her for some cookies and a thank you note. But as Matt gets to know Tate and appreciate her strength and unique beauty, he also realizes she's got some big self esteem issues about her past. To build a future, he's got to find a way past some big road blocks. Warning, this title contains the following: explicit sex, graphic language, some violence.

What I thought:

As I read I was feeling like something was off, and I think with this novel I figured out what was bugging me. The fights. They are over so quickly, it feels like the Brady Bunch, how they apologize so quickly and it's over and everything is great again. The brothers, the couples, the only ones that seem to last is whoever is being 'chased'. I know not all arguments will last and be drawn out but others would be harder to get over in just a few seconds like what happened throughout this series.

Also, this isn't a very guy friendly series, I've come to see. What I mean is, the guy is always in the wrong. In this book Matt got upset when Tate kept something from him and he was hurt. Like he should have been. But he was made out to be the bad guy. I was waiting for the girl to have to deal with the thought of losing a Chase brother when they mess up, but the guys always end up the bad guy. It wasn't so obvious in the previous books, but this one had me scratching my head.
