Publisher's Summary

Cassie Gambol is on the run. In what seems like another lifetime, her ex-husband nearly ended her life and effectively ended her successful career as a vascular surgeon. But even though the justice system found him guilty of attempted murder, he fled while awaiting sentencing and Carly Sunderland became Cassie Gambol.
Fleeing Los Angeles, Cassie heads to small and off-the-map Petal, Georgia, to start her life again. Shane Chase, a man who's held himself away from commitment since his fiancée dumped him several years before, knows the beautiful newcomer is hiding something. He's wildly attracted to her strength and her underlying vulnerability as well. But the last thing Cassie wants is another big, overwhelming man who wants to control her life.
A battle begins between Shane, who knows what he wants and Cassie, who tries to keep a distance between herself and the very handsome sheriff. But Cassie's ex is back and he wants her dead.

Shane's story - he's the tough dislikable Sheriff and oldest Chase brother who we met in book 1 and because of a cheating girlfriend he's a 'use them then lose them' type - until he meets Cassie who thankfully brings out the best in him but she's even more physically and emotionally scarred than him.

This is a feel good contemporary love story about obsession, trust, forgiveness and love in a small town in America where we meet some great characters including the handsome Chase bothers and their family, a damaged and violated woman on the run, a brutal ex, some jealous wanna be's and a Sheriff who has to fight for the woman he loves. It has a good plot which contains drama, tension, heartache, sex, romance, lust and love.

Could be a stand alone listen but you may miss some of the background.

Worth a credit? Yes and eagerly looking forward to the others.

Love story, very little action, moderate story

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I wouldn't recommend it but I would not dis-way listening to it. It is a damsel in distress with a hero.

Would you recommend Taking Chase to your friends? Why or why not?

I think there are other books that are better. This is just a love story. I prefer action, banter and story to go with the love story. Jeanine Frost's Night huntress series is excellent! Diane Duvall is also a great listen. These authors have more complex plot and characters.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Aletha George?

I would not seek her out. She wasn't bad.

Could you see Taking Chase being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Lifetime movie. People that like light plots and characters would watch it. I like more in depth characters, a bigger cast, and more complex plot.
