Friends forever. Chase Kipling and his twin brother Cade have been best friends with Katie since grade school. They hang out together all the time, riding horses, playing cards, going to movies and sporting events. A fun friendship for all three of them. Until a new guy in town mentions what a sexy woman she is. Chase sees red at the comment, how dare some guy lust after his best friend. Sure, she’s beautiful and sexy and has a great laugh… and now his eyes are opened and there’s no turning back.

Katie Jackson has known Chase since first grade, she’s had a crush on him since middle school, and loved him since, well, probably forever. But he’s got her firmly in the friend zone and she has no idea how to change that. Or if she even wants to risk changing it. After all friends is better than nothing. Isn’t it?

📝My Review📝:

Tempting ChaseTempting Chase by Shirley Penick

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Tempting Chase is book three in this series. As with the two previous books in the series, the author does a good job pulling you into the story. This book was a bit different that the previous two because the majority of the book takes place in town since that is where Katie lives and works. This book ha a bit of suspense but nothing to eventful or angst. In fact, I enjoyed the light suspense aspect in this book very much.

Chase and his twin brother Cade have been friends with Katie since childhood. Their friendship has always been platonic and both brothers are protective of her. But there has never been any romantic feelings. That is until a comment made by another man, shines a new light on Katie where Chase is concerned. After twenty years of friendship, Chase is seeing Katie in a whole new light. Predictably, he doesn’t know what to do with his new feelings. Katie has no problem showing him what to do. She has loved him for so long. When she finally makes the decision to “go fo it,” Chase is not prepared. I loved watching these two together. I believed their attraction. The chemistry between Chase and Katie was scorching and when they finally acted on their attraction, it was perfect.

From that point on, the story moves very quickly. Chase will make some mistakes in which a lot of groveling is involved. I actually loved that part. The grand gestures from flawed heroes are some of my favorite aspects of romance novels and this one did not disappoint.

Without saying anything more, I will tell you that I truly liked this book. Chase has been one of many favorite characters from when we meet him in the first book. His twin brother Cade’s book is going to be my next read and I can’t wait to see how that one turns out.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
