First in a tantalizing new trilogy about reigniting a forbidden desire from long ago…
As heiress to a media empire Alessandra Sinclair was raised to put family obligations first. But everything changes the night her first love walks back into her life and turns her whole world upside down. Haunted by the memories of a secret romance with a boy from the wrong side of the tracks, she can’t seem to get Hudson Chase out of her mind. Once again torn between two worlds, Allie must decide how much she’s willing to risk to have the love she’s always longed for.
Ten years is a long time to wait, but billionaire Hudson Chase didn’t become CEO of one of the country’s fastest growing companies by giving up on what he wants. Now that he’s got Allie in his sights again, he’s determined to make her regret breaking his heart. And this time, he’s going to make damn sure he’s not so easy to forget.
Includes a preview of Release Me, book two of the Chasing Fire trilogy.
I was immediately drawn to reading it because of the synopsis. Hot, alpha, billionaire who came from nothing? Yes, please. Seriously, Hudson Chase is one of those guys who will arouse you, and at the same time he’ll pique your curiosity. He’s a hard ass who doesn’t play around in his business dealings, or in going after the girl who got away when they meet up after 10 years. Let me just say he’s got some mad skillz and moves you’re gonna love reading about!
Allie was more difficult for me to warm up to. Brought up in affluence she isn’t a spoiled diva…far from it, but it was difficult for me to relate to someone who was so under her parent’s thumb as a grown woman. Having said that, I did indeed begin to feel differently about her as the story progressed. I think that’s important for you to know, because to me it signifies good writing and story telling in order to change my mind about a character. Midway through I was firmly attached to her.
Hudson and Allie have a second chance to find something special together. They want each other desperately, and now that Hudson is no longer the unsavory bad boy you might think it would be smooth sailing. Nope! They’ve got challenges and issues on both sides, but I really can’t say too much beyond that without being spoilerish.
Two characters you’re gonna have a serious hate fest with are Allie’s mom, and her fiancé Julian. OMG! I cannot even begin to tell you how much I wanted to jump into the book and just do some serious ass kicking with those two. Hudson’s brother is another character that deserves mention. The life he lives and the choices he’s made are so completely different. Hudson carries around quite a bit of guilt where his brother is concerned, and it makes for an interesting aside in the overall story. I’m very curious to see how it will play out in the future. I will warn you that this book ends on a cliffhanger of epic proportions. I absolutely was not prepared for what happens, and I can’t wait to get my hands on book two!
I’m giving Remind Me a high recommendation. I think you’ll love Hudson as well as the scorching heat between him and Allie. I think you’ll find yourself drawn to the story itself, and all the emotions it will evoke. In other words…this one needs to be on your reading radar, and downloading to your e-reader when it releases tomorrow.
