Book Review: Chasing Happy (Texas Desires #1) by Rylie Roberts

Reed Prescott’s life is complicated enough before a silly little girl in outrageous high heels bites it in front of his moving vehicle. With no other choice, he forces her out of the pouring rain and inside his car. His concern isn’t necessarily with her safety, but to ward off any potential lawsuit. 

Lara Hunter’s life is headed in the right direction. With a good education, a great new job, and her dear best friend, Kade, by her side, nothing can get in her way until a freak rain storm leaves her sprawled across the road in the middle of a busy intersection during rush hour traffic. When the gorgeous man in the business suit and too expensive car takes her back to his office, she’s not entirely sure she appreciates his high-handed helpfulness. 

When Reed’s assistant finishes with Lara, he finds his entire world rocked by the captivating beauty underneath that soggy exterior. From day one, Reed’s success in business has always been fueled by a deep, unbreakable hate for his grandfather. So when the potential for love stands in front of him, can this hardened man find a way to chase his own happiness?
4.5 star review

Captivating..Addicting…Masterful debut novel by Rylie Roberts. Rylie bring her characters to life and made me fall in love with Reed and Lara on every page.

Sexy…Lustful…Passionate…between the steamy scenes and meaningful topics Chasing Happy makes for an all around amazing read.

Riley Roberts is a new author for me but I fell in love with the synopsis and cover so I thought what the heck. I was so glad that I did. Chasing Happy is exactly what the title tells you! It’s about chasing your happy and never thinking you will find it. However once you do find it will you be terrified to fight for it and do whatever it takes to keep it?

Rylie did a great job writing the character Reed. He is sexy, successful and stubborn as hell. A little cockiness and a whole bunch of Alpha, Rylie makes up the complete package except his past has always haunted him. Despite his success he can’t seem to let go of the life he was born into. He seemed determined to live his bitter existence until Lara was thrown in the mix and that’s when everything changed.

OMG I loved Lara. She is sweet and genuine.   She is a bit naïve but I think that’s what I loved about her the most. She is a strong female lead that sometimes needed a little bit of guidance. Lara is well-developed character that was very easy to fall in love with.

This was an easygoing fun read that touched on some dark times. There was passion, angst, and humor all wrapped into one. Off the charts in the steam category but not overly so. Rylie did a great job with balancing the steam factor without only giving us that and not so much of a story line. She did a wonderful job with getting me intrigued with the storyline and having sexy time as a bonus. It was defiantly a page-turner for me and I became an instant fan of hers and can’t wait to see what her next story has for us.
