Publisher's Summary

Everyone says opposites attract. And they must be right, because there’s no logical reason why I’m so drawn to Colin Fitzgerald. I don’t usually go for tattoo-covered, video-gaming, hockey-playing nerd-jocks who think I’m flighty and superficial. His narrow view of me is the first strike against him. It doesn’t help that he’s buddy-buddy with my brother.

And that his best friend has a crush on me.

And that I just moved in with them.

Oh, did I not mention we’re roommates?

I suppose it doesn’t matter. Fitzy has made it clear he’s not interested in me, even though the sparks between us are liable to burn our house down. I’m not the kind of girl who chases after a man, though, and I’m not about to start. I’ve got my hands full dealing with a new school, a sleazy professor, and an uncertain future. So if my sexy brooding roomie wises up and realizes what he’s missing?

He knows where to find me.

Pretty People Problems

It was entertaining and funny even though I'm not a fan of the tropes and explicitness. The writing style bugged me at first. There's a lot of telling and not a lot of showing but I got use to it. This did make it harder to relate to the characters though. Over all it wasn't bad but not memorable for me personally. .

Good but not Great.

So this story is solid. Leans towards a college level crowd of characters with most of the stereotypical drama to be found in such settings. You may roll your eyes at times but it’s not too painful. Characters are interesting. SMUT is at a reasonably tasteful level. You won’t regret spending the credit but you may or may not continue this series depending on your age and enjoyment of the college crowd.

Annoying Narration

They story is ok, but the female narrator is really grating to listen to for me. I found myself feeling irritated by her voice and narrating which made it difficult to really focus on the story. The guy narrating was much better and easier to listen to, so I enjoyed those parts but wish I could fast forward the woman narrating without losing any part of the story. I am sensitive to sound so there are certain tones and inflections in people's voices that really get on my nerves and distract me from properly listening to what they're saying and unfortunately the female narrator is a miss for me. I'm just over 2 hours in and I don't think I can keep listening to this story because of it.

JUST..INCREDIBLE!

I’m so in love and captivated by the characters and storyline. I would definitely listen to this over and over again. The voice acting was amazing and I just felt so encapsulated by Colin and Summer's chemistry and intricate personalities.

I loved this book

Summmer is probably my favorite character of all time. She’s is so relatable!!! Elle did a great job with the topics she included in the story and creating the character in general.

Predictable and shallow

The book was interesting enough to finish listening to it, but it was so predictable that I already knew what would happen. The story is mainly about two immature people who list after each other, finally have sex and tell each other, I love you. The characters had little depth. So, overall, a waste of my credit

couldn't finish...

I had to stop listening to this book. Maybe its more geared for a younger reader. I found Summer to be immature and the total college scene to be so childish and boring. Nothing happening in this book held my interest in any way. Jacob Morgan does good on his narration but CJ's voice added to Summer's spoiled and immature behavior. enough was just enough...

The Chase

Summer and Fitzy I loved this couple, they really are completely different from each other yet really do complement each other. I am a sucker for a college romance. I liked that he was running scared because of his past it showed he was vulnerable but he also grew. The honesty might have taken time but once they both opened up it was refreshing. Summer and all she has to go through it really is no wonder she doubts herself so much because when she does seek help she gets rebuffed. She is a pretty strong character. I enjoyed the narration; these are two of my favorites so I have nothing but admiration for them.

Narrators? Seriously??

The narrator reading for Fitz is awesome. I’ve listened to his other books and absolutely LOVE HIM.... I would actually prefer for him to read for ALL of the characters.... he does a great job even when reading for the females. Perfect. Couldn’t ask for anything better. HOWEVER.... who picked the narrators for Summer and Brenna?!?! They sound like 40 year old country club, yacht moms..... neither of them fit the part and it almost ruins the book. These details matter. Something as simple as this can make or break a read.

Total B rated book!

This book had a weak storyline, not a lot of depth in characters. Would not recommend.

The book itself I loved.

The book itself I loved. The voive actors were refreshing but.... I can't do the no character switch between chapters. The female voice trying to deepen to the male character and vice versa it just doesn't work. That being said I was actually able to finish this book, there are others that I couldn't.

Oh my!

I know I am stealing from Emmie Armstrong from The Rocker Series (TAB) but "Oh my Gods!" This book is amazing. I have not read any books from the preceding series but now I definitely going back to read them all. I hope the narration on the previous series is just as good as it is in this book.

Fun rom com at its best

I have been waiting for The Chase to come to audio for months and started listening the moment it was released. I love catching up with the Briar Ice Hockey team especially Fitz and Summer who we met in the previous book. CJ Bloom did a phenomenal job bringing out her whimsical nature and her insecurities brought on by her learning disabilities. Jacob Morgan really brought Fitz to life in his stoicism and how he fought their attraction. Can’t wait to return to Briar for Brenna’s book.
