i>“Chasing Desire” is the third book in Joya Ryan’s series “Chasing Love”
, but you can read it as a standalone. This third installment is about Huck, who we met in the previous books in the series and Autumn, Jenna’s friend (the heroine from “Chasing Trouble”
). A second chance at love, "Chasing Desire"
was a sweet and sexy read and if you enjoyed the other books in the series, I really recommend it.
“I think I just found what I’m looking for,”
“Ah, fate is kind,” he said. “Because so am I.”
“And what is it you’re looking for?”
Autumn is down on her luck. She lost everything - her house, her job and her boyfriend. She doesn’t want a boyfriend right now. This time she’s done jumping from relationship to relationship, but this doesn’t mean she doesn’t want a one night stand. In a bar she spots a hot tattooed man who is more than willing to be her man for just one night.
Huck is not looking for something long term. Since his fiancée left him years ago he didn’t get involved with a woman longer than a single night.
“There was a vulnerability encased by so much strength that he thought he’d imagined the brief look of sadness behind her eyes.”
Huck is drawn to Autumn from the very first moment. He can tell she’s different from any other woman he met. Autumn is more than attracted to Huck and even if he doesn’t know his name she wants to spend one hot night with him.
They meet again and Autumn finds out who Huck really is - one of the groomsmen of her best friend’s wedding. When Huck finds out that Autumn will be in town for two weeks house sitting for their friends he’s very happy to show her around. Autumn is more than a pretty face, Huck is sure of that. She’s a challenge and he wants more days and nights with her.
“What exactly would you like me to get on?”(…)
“What are my options?”
“I could get on your cock,”(..)
“I could ride you all night, until you’re spent and exhausted and begging for a break.”(..)
“Or I could push you down and get on that hot tongue of yours.”
Both Huck and Autumn start to want more from each other, their relationship changes and their affair becomes more that a simply affair with each and every day. But what happens at the end of these two weeks when Autumn has to leave?
“Huck Galvin was her home now. Wanted to be. Because he wanted her. Had chosen her.”
I really enjoyed this one! Autumn was a great heroine and I liked her personality. I liked that she’s not a girly girl. She’s mouthy and strong and just an endearing character. She’s strong, but she's vulnerable at the same time. Huck was pretty great too. He’s dominant, but he’s open and honest and sweet and caring too. I liked how he is with Autumn and how he makes her feel special and feminine. They really have a great chemistry and together they are smoking hot. The sex scenes are off the charts hot, intense and passionate. I also enjoyed the teasing and the dynamic between them.
It was nice to meet again the other characters from the previous books. Penny was such a great friend to Autumn. Can't wait to read more about the other characters in the series.
Overall, an enjoyable read! Reply
