Giving Chase by Lauren Dane: An Audio Review

Giving Chase: Chase Brothers, Book 1

Giving Chase:

Chase Brothers, Book 1

by Lauren Dane (Author), Aletha George (Narrator)
Some small towns grow really good-looking men! This is the case with the four Chase brothers.
The homegrown hotties are on the wish list of every single woman in town and Maggie Wright is no exception. Maggie has finally had it with the men she's been dating but a spilled plate of chili cheese fries drops Shane Chase right into her lap. The sheriff is hot stuff but was burned by a former fiancée and is quite happy to play the field.
After Shane's skittishness sends him out the door, Maggie realizes that Kyle Chase has had his eye on her from the start. Now that Shane has messed up, Kyle has no intention of letting anything stop him from wooing her right into his bed. Now, despite Maggie's happiness and growing love for Kyle, a dark shadow threatens everything - she's got a stalker and he's not happy at all. In the end, Maggie will need her wits, strength, and the love of her man to get her out alive.
I'd read the Chase books before, but it's been a few years ~ and Oh, I SO enjoying getting to know the Chase brothers again in Book 1, Giving Chase!  I'm not even going to go into a whole drawn out review, but what I AM going to tell you is that one of the reasons I  love Lauren Dane's writing so very much is because of the sticky situations, tough circumstances, and just plain hard choices she chooses to tackle in her book.  In this book Maggie starts out dating and starting to fall for one Chase brother, Shane (who has been totally burned) who leaves her swinging in the wind, and ends up falling for another brother, the adorable and oh, so sexy Kyle.  She's totally not a ho, but we all know that's running through your head, right?  Ms. Dane totally takes it on, and aces it!  And after Maggie gets attacked, Ms. Dane AGAIN tackles the tough subject of how women feel after this, if on a small scale.  I just overall love that her heroines are not in your face, but they ARE up front and real about life. 

And I really loved the narrator for this book, she totally brought the characters to life for me!
I'm thrilled to be getting to know the Chase's again, and if you're an audio fan and you haven't picked this series up before, let me recommend you get it! 
I see that all the books are slated to come out pretty quickly, and I can't wait to get them ALL!!
