Actress Trish Ryder takes her job seriously and has no time for those who don’t. When she’s awarded a major role in a new movie featuring America’s hottest rock star, Boone Stryker, she’s beyond excited. The six-two, tattooed hunk of burning desire is known for his dedication to his craft—but when he ditches their first meeting, she begins to wonder if he’s just another rocker with a great PR team.
Sex, booze, women, and music pretty much sum up Boone Stryker’s private world. He’s coasted through life playing by his own rules with plenty of people willing to cover his tracks, and he’s not likely to change—until he meets a woman who refuses to give him the time of day, much less anything more.
Sparks fly from the first moment Trish and Boone meet—Tensions run hot and desire runs hotter when they’re trapped together on a remote location with no place to hide. Will sparks ignite, or will a hurricane douse the flames?
Chased by Love was cute enough for me to finish until the end and because I know I couldn’t go wrong with Melissa’s writing but it felt lacking in the conflict department that would test their relationship.
What happens when a bad boy rockstar who has a rep for sleeping around gets an acting gig with A-list actress who’s known for her talent in acting and professionalism? Not to mention said rockstar is hot and this actress has a huge crush on him? And their chemistry is sizzling?
Trish Ryder may just be one of the strongest female leads I’ve read. She’s so fierce, funny, driven and dedicated. I have no issues whatsoever with those. However, she just felt so flat to me that I didn’t see any progress to her character. What she was from the start is just the same when the story ended.
I felt so heartbroken for Boone Stryker the moment he was introduced in the story. He has this bad boy persona upfront and center for the whole world to see but he’s so much more than what the world thinks of him. He has a huge heart for people he cares about a lot and I admired how well-rounded he has become throughout the story. Definitely a book boyfriend material.
The romance was heartfelt and I loved how it was incorporated with the whole film making scenes, the songwriting process of Boone and the families that were very close to the characters. The issue with Boone was solved smoothly and I really liked how he became the bigger person with all the things that’s happening around him and their relationship.
I was waiting for that big conflict like I expected of Melissa’s story but I felt so let down that it didn’t come. Overall, it’s still an enjoyable, feel-good and sexy book that Melissa’s known for.
