My Copy: Ebook from Amazon
Chase Walker used to be a good kid—charming, athletic, and with a bright future ahead, but that was before travesty struck his life, sinking him into deep despair. Caught up in a world of drugs and alcohol, he doesn’t notice time slipping away until he’s arrested for underage drinking one night.
Fed up with watching her son destroy his life, Chase’s mom relocates him to live in a small ranching community with his ex-military grandfather. Chase is far from happy about the situation until he meets, Nikki, the cute cheerleader who won’t give football players like him the time of day.
Chase enjoys a good challenge though and sets out to claim Nikki for his own. He soon discovers she’s more than a pretty face—she’s a balm to his troubled spirit also. But when tragedy strikes Nikki’s life too, suddenly Chase finds himself put to the ultimate test. Can he trust Nikki, and all that she’s taught him? Will it be enough?
I just started reading Chasing Nikki this morning and two hours later, I am writing the review. Everything is still fresh in my mind and when I say that I mean, my heart is still trying to mend itself back together.
Weatherford really took me on a spin in this book; every emotion seeped out of me. The first ¾ of the book is amazing. I loved Chase and his stupid, cocky attitude and how he was so determined to get Nikki to just say yes to one date. That was all he wanted and he worked hard to get that yes. A ‘yes’ turned into a little more and you get to see each character open up about their past. And then this whole, beautiful relationship bloomed. Weatherford picked me up and took me on a ride with their love for each other and how they were absolutely perfect for on another.
And then it happened…
It is the struggle of real life; nothing is fair. Nothing works out the way we hope it will. But with this dark turn, Weatherford had the chance to make the character Chase stronger and a better man. And in the end, that is all Nikki longed for.
I am excited about the sequel to Chasing Nikki. I have some predictions that I hope comes true.
