ARC REVIEW - Chasing Desire (Chasing Love #3) by Joya Ryan

Adult Contemporary Romance
Release: February 16, 2015
Publisher: Brazen/Entangled Publishing

It’s her best friend’s wedding, and Autumn Lane is trussed up in a pink bridesmaid dress with a big “everything is great” smile plastered across her face. She’s not going think about her life imploding, or spending the next two weeks housesitting in the ridiculously small town of Diamond. No, she’d rather think about the tattooed hottie in the wedding party…and how to turn the wicked way he’s looking at her into a night of intense pleasure.

Huck Galvin is fiercely attracted to his mystery woman’s no-BS attitude, but their one-night-no-strings plan backfires when Huck discovers that Autumn is the out-of-towner he’s “chaperoning” for the next two weeks. Outside the bedroom, the two can’t stand each other, yet Huck can’t deny how much he wants one more night with her. 

But Autumn isn’t going to make it easy for Huck. Not by a long shot…

Quick easy read about two people who have experienced abandonment by their loved ones have led them to each wanting to be the person who leaves first, thereby setting themselves up to just experience one-night stands, and how the one night they both agree to slowly becomes something more and they begin to learn to trust each other, no matter how much they try and fight their feelings.

It was easy to have empathy for Autumn, given that she was abandoned by both parents, and her ex-boyfriend was a d-bag; Huck on the other hand, what his ex did was definitely foul, and while no actual time is given, I know it's been at least a couple of years since his ex split, but I was still a bit surprised that it's still affecting as much as it is in the book. I wish the author had gone a bit more in depth on why his ex did what she did.

There is a HEA for Autumn and Huck, but I think it would have been more realistic if everything that happened at the end took place a bit further into their relationship as opposed to when it occurred.
