High on life and all its luxuries, Brayden James has no intention of slowing down. That is until his womanizing ways catch up with him and he gets a much needed wake-up call. Just as he decides to clean up his act, the ultimate temptation enters his life.
When Mackenzie Reed meets Brayden, the attraction is instant and she knows that together they could achieve the kind of career success she’s always craved. But Mackenzie isn’t like most women. She has very good reasons for keeping her heart locked up tight. For her, this isn’t about love. This is about power.
Sparks fly as Brayden and Mackenzie try to avoid the one thing neither of them wanted. Each must choose between the life they’ve worked hard to achieve and the one they never imagined. Will they come to the same decision before it’s too late? Or will a hidden threat keep them apart?
Super sexy, super thrilling, and enough chemistry to light up the pages, Chasing Desire is a contemporary that will definitely keep you hooked!
With Brayden James, he's definitely sexy and definitely hardworking and that's sexy as heck. I could have done with out his womanizing times a million, but hey there was a reason for it and I'm proud of him for finally realizing it wasn't worth it. On the other side with Mackenzie, this girl has been through the ringer and yet she is still a strong and fierce woman and that's admirable. I adored watching her and Brayden fall for each other and deal with all the crap thrown their way.
The only few gripes I had with Chasing Desire is it is classified as a new adult contemporary, and I'm not sure I would put it there. For one, the characters are older than I imagine for new adult and there is a ton of sexual moments. Not that that's a bad thing, I would just classify it as a more adult read. Also, the beginning just didn't grab me like I wanted it to. There was too much focus on Brayden and how much of a womanizer he was, when I wanted to just jump into the story. Other than that, once Mackenzie came in the picture...I was hooked.
If you're looking for a sexy, romantic read with some thrill thrown in definitely give this one a try!
