Chase on the Run Chase Tyler was so overcome with grief when his wife and unborn baby were killed in a car accident that he ran. He ran away from the family business and his memories and became a rodeo man. Riding bulls and drinking until he couldn't feel anymore was the only way he could survive until he was injured and a lady from his past came back into his life. Marcie Johns had known Chase since they were kids and was driving the car when it killed his wife. She had always loved him, but now he needed her. He needed her to make him stop running and be a man again. She made him an offer that would save the family business and was a gamble with her heart.
The story is good, even if a little predictable. Sandra Brown seems to be afraid to break out of the traditional romance mold, even though she keeps crossing the line, and then jumping back within the boundaries. You know the next in the series will be even better!
CLASS PRESIDENT FALLS FOR BOOKWORM I HAVE READ A FEW OF THE REVIEWS ABOUT THIS BOOK AND DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY PEOPLE FEEL THAT CHASE WAS SUCH A HORRIBLE GUY FOR THE WAY HE TREATED MARCIE. I THOUGHT THEY BOTH DISHED OUT EQUAL PUNISHMENTS ON EACH OTHER. I DONT THINK MARCIE WAS A VICTIM AT ALL IF ANYTHING SHE GOT EXACTLY WHAT SHE WANTED, CHASE! SHE'S BEEN IN LOVE WITH HIM SINCE GRADE SCHOOL. WHAT MORE COULD SHE ASK FOR? I THOUGHT THIS ONE OF THE TRIOLOGY WAS THE BEST. THE OTHER TWO WERE VERY GOOD TOO BUT I THINK THIS ONE HAD MORE UMPH. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK. FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE FANS OF HER NEWER BOOKS YOU MIGHT WANT TO STAY CLEAR. THIS IS STRICKLY ROMANCE WITH A LITTLE BIT OF SUSPENSE. I'VE HEARD A LOT OF COMPLAINING ABOUT "IS THIS THE AUTHOR WHO WROTE ENVY AND ALIBI". PERSONALLY I'M TIRED OF HEARING THAT. MOST OF HER EARLY STUFF ARE JUST ROMANCE. SO IF YOU WANT TO COMPLAIN THEN DONT READ HER OLD BOOKS AND JUST STAY WITH HER NEWER STUFF. I PERSONALLY LIKE THEM ALL.Full of Emotional Turmoil with Some Twists! Best One Yet! IMO, this is the best of the three books in the series. By the end of Lucky, we know Chase doesn't live happily ever after with his wife. In a tragic turn of events, a car crash took the lives of his beloved wife and unborn child in a matter of seconds. Ravaged by grief, Chase turns to drinking and his old pasttime, bullriding. No one has seen him in months, no one knows where he is until the only person in the world who understands his grief runs into him by sheer accident...Marcie Johns, the woman driving the car the night his wife was killed. Marcie has been racked with guilt since that fateful night two years ago. Driving her newfound friend and customer to a house showing, realtor and old family friend Marcie, is hit by a car who runs a redlight. Nearly dying herself, she hasn't seen nor heard from Chase Tyler since that night, but at a Fort Worth bullriding competition, she is shocked to see him drunk and riding. Hateful and angry and lost, Chase resents her help and pity. Marcie makes it her mission to save him before he ends up killing himself. What she doesn't expect is for old feelings to surface. Feelings of love she's had for Chase since she was in K-5. Chase in turn is shocked to realize he wants Marcie and needs her. But can he do this? Can he fall for the woman who was in the very car with his wife when she died? Is he willing to take that chance to love again? Things become even foggier when Marcie offers Chase a chance at saving his company from financial ruin with a tempting proposition. Can the bookworm seduce the broken and beaten cowboy? I loved this touching story. This proves once again that love does indeed heal all wounds, both deep and small.
