The first time I met Chase Parker, I didn’t exactly make a good impression.

I was hiding in the bathroom hallway of a restaurant, leaving a message for my best friend to save me from my awful date.

He overheard and told me I was a bitch, then proceeded to offer me some dating advice.

So I told him to mind his own damn business—his own tall, gorgeous, full-of-himself damn business—and went back to my miserable date.

When he walked by my table, he smirked, and I watched his arrogant, sexy ass walk back to his date.

I couldn’t help but sneak hidden glances at the condescending jerk on the other side of the room.  Of course, he caught me on more than one occasion, and winked.

When the gorgeous stranger and his equally hot date suddenly appeared at our table, I thought he was going to rat me out.

But instead, he pretended we knew each other and joined us—telling elaborate, embarrassing stores about our fake childhood.

My date suddenly went from boring to bizarrely exciting.

When it was over and we parted ways, I thought about him more than I would ever admit, even though I knew I’d never see him again.

I mean, what were the chances I’d run into him again in a city with eight million people?

Then again…

What were the chances a month later he’d wind up being my new sexy boss?

You know when you get sucked into a book and you don’t want to stop reading; you want it to go on forever and ever well-knowing the end is coming. And then when you do reach the last written word, one yearns for it to continue. A few hours or days later, the story is still there, vividly etched on your mind. This is exactly how we felt about this read. Never were we prepared to have such a thumping book hangover either. Both of us are huge fans of Vi’s writing. Of late, she’s entertained us with some really hilarious romance comedies. This is different. This work of art literally took our breath away. Even though humour abounds, it has a much more sensitive side to it. The structural writing couldn’t have been better since two stories will eventually meld into one. At the same time, the pace is as such that the reader is kept guessing. This gave the book an aura of intense depth and shape, viability. Told from the two protagonists’ points of view in past tense, we invested in them from the word go. Personal issues are revealed just when they needed to be. In fact, what we thought would be laugh out loud throughout was not to be. Ooh boy, were we fooled or what!  

“Ummm… your hand is on my ass.”

“Is it? It must have a mind of its own.”

As per usual, Vi’s style shines through with her characters’ witty banter. It flows so naturally that it was easy to imagine being flies on the wall lapping up Chase and Reese’s toing and froing. Us gals at KFF felt totally spoilt not only because she’d gone to great lengths to satisfy our thirst for dialogue, but also her character development was beyond our dreams. That being said, how on earth she managed to have us grabbing for tissues in moments of happiness and sadness, has without a doubt, left us in awe.

“There’s nothing I’d like more than to come inside. And I mean that in more ways than one.”

Now then, let’s get down to the nitty-gritty! Chase Parker. Facets of his personality are lovable, conflicting, confusing, and not for the want of jumping into our Kindles and giving him a good hiding at times. Successful inventor of ladies’ aesthetic thingies, and get this … if indeed his invention existed, we’d be the first ones running to the shop which sold it. (Vi, you know what you have to do!) Just the right age for us, him wearing a made to measure suit like a second skin we could cope with . . . hardly. Envisioning Chase in low cut jeans, bare-footed, and a tattoo with a significance to be revealed, had our tongues hanging out. Underneath his façade is a very troubled man. Nevertheless, he had a way of creeping under our skin with an ease making us swoon to the moon. Officially naming him our book boyfriend of the year, we would even go to say that this gentle and considerate businessman by day and horrendously amorous lover by night… well, whenever and wherever he chooses depending on the opportunity, had us in his hands. Goodness, who doesn’t like a dirty talker willing you on with sexy personal messages and more besides? But maybe we were overly confident! A past occurrence of the direst kind doesn’t just catch up with him, it drowns him with even more guilt than we could possibly have envisaged. Making matters worse if that were ever possible, his last discovery in this complex plot broke him and us into pieces. We came undone, we wanted to hold his hand, and we sobbed alongside this beautiful, generous man who was trying his best to move on but to no avail.

“….. Being afraid is when you let fear control your life, let it stop you from doing what you want. When you’re afraid, but you look fear in the eye and live, that’s courageous.

We’re going to do a fast-forward here. Chase’s make-believe tales on the spur of the moment are absurd, ridiculously refreshing and what’s more, the lass he has his eye on goes with the flow much to his pleasure. She is spellbound but gives him as good as she gets! It’s a verbal tangle of flirtation, chemistry at its best, a conflict between two strong personalities finding their way and testing waters. Chuckle to our hearts content, we did! Who fell hard for this drop-dead gorgeous male whispering in Reese’s ear, spurring on sexy innuendos, goading a subtle inquisition to be conveyed in the length of this story? We suppose you’ve cottoned on by now! Not prepared to put her career in jeopardy, the coincidences that clash with the complications of job ethics set in, are to put it mildly, overwhelmingly real. She’s not good, she’s brilliant. Peculiar as it may seem, we were surprised that Reese Annesley confessed her fears before Chase. Slowly and cautiously she opens her heart when there’s no other option. We asked ourselves if revealing her fears was going to help him. A nudge in the right direction was most certainly needed. However, she can’t lose what she never really had and it’s not because patience is lacking. Chase, for us, was the epitome of a god-man walking on icy waters who fell into hell. Whether or not he manages to surface remains to be seen. In other words, we’re not letting on!

“There’s only one thing I need you to guard for me.”

“Name it.”

“You have my heart. Promise me you’ll keep it safe.”

“Only if you promise never to give it back.”

Bossman brought out all our feelings. We wept for joy and were struck by sorrow in scenes which pulled on our heartstrings. Vi never fails to disappoint us in her books. For us, book heaven is blending swoon-worthiness with the vulnerability in a male protagonist and we had that and more with Chase. If you’re looking for laughter and a real heart-wrenchingly beautiful story then look no further than this new offering from one of our favourite authors. Bravo Vi, bravo!
