Review of The Chase, Volume 1 (The Chase #1) by Jessica Wood

The Chase, Volume 1 (The Chase, #1)

The Chase, Volume 1 (The Chase #1)

735 to 1.

735 = number of notches on his belt.
1 = the notch he couldn’t get.

Who is he?

Dean Chase.

He loves the thrill. He loves the women. And above all, he loves the chase.

But the one thing he doesn’t love is being tied down by a woman. To him, once the chase is over, it’s time to pull up his boxers and move on to the next target.

That is until he meets Blair Parker.

Blair is unlike any of the women under Dean’s belt. She’s confident, mysterious, and sassy. In Dean’s world, she’s the wicked curved ball he couldn’t figure out. She’s the first woman who always seems to be out of reach no matter how hard he chases. So when it comes to Blair, Dean couldn’t move on.

Dean will need to change his ways in order to chase Blair down to make her the 736th notch on his belt. But will chasing after Blair become Dean’s undoing and end his love of the chase once and for all?

The Chase is volume one of a three-part contemporary romance novella series. 

Review by Gia:
The Chase, Volume One is a great read.  It is definitely a must read.
Dean Chase is a player.  To Dean woman are just a number.  He has 735 notches is his proverbial belt.  When he see Blair, he wants her to be number 736.  So, when I first read that Dean had been with 735 woman, I was like eew gross.  In other books I have read the main guy character has slept over but I have never read a book where the main character counts his conquest.  Dean's number of conquests didn't bother me for long because Dean is such a great character.
Dean and Blair are great, well written characters.  Dean doesn't sugarcoat anything.  He is a straight forward guy.   Blair is feisty and doesn't  fall for Dean immediately.   Blair doesn't let Dean get away with a lot of thing his other woman did.  I loved reading the email interaction back and forth from Dean and Blair. 
This is Volume 1, so of course there is a cliffhanger.   The Chase, Volume 2 is now out so you don't have to wait to continue reading Dean and Blair's story.   I one clicked  The Chase, Volume 2 right away.

About Jessica Wood:

Jessica Wood writes contemporary romance.

While she has lived in countless cities throughout the U.S., her heart belongs to San Francisco. To her, there’s something seductively romantic about the Golden Gate Bridge, the steep rolling hills of the city streets, the cable cars, and the Victorian-style architecture.

She loves a strong, masculine man with a witty personality. While she is headstrong and extremely independent, she can’t resist a man who takes control of the relationship, both outside and inside of the bedroom.

She loves to travel internationally, and tries to plan a yearly trip abroad. She also loves to cook and bake, and—to the benefit of her friends—she loves to share. She also enjoys ceramics and being creative with her hands. She has a weakness for good (maybe bad) TV shows; she’s up-to-date on over 25 current shows, and no, that wasn’t a joke.

And it goes without saying, she loves books—they’re like old and dear friends who have always been there to make her laugh and make her cry.

The one thing she wished she had more of is time.
