The Chase (Briar U #1) by Elle Kennedy Review

The Chase (Briar U, #1)The Chase by Elle Kennedy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I adored Elle Kennedy’s THE CHASE. It is the first book in the Briar U series and the perfect spin-off from the Off-Campus series The main characters are Briar hockey forward Colin Fitzgerald (Fitzy) and Summer Di Laurentis, the younger sister of Dean Di Laurentis from THE SCORE, book three of the Off-Campus series.

I love Fitzy and Summer. They are very different, yet they end up having a lot in common. My heart went out to both characters for the things they endured. Summer struggles with her classes because she has a learning disability. Colin’s parents went through a brutal divorce using him to get back at each other. Fitzy hates drama, and drama seems to follow Summer wherever she goes. Fitzy is an introvert. Summer is an extrovert. Summer is rich, Fitzy not so much. The two don’t even resemble the others typical “type." However, as time goes on they discover their similarities and cannot deny their attraction to each other.

Elle Kennedy does an amazing job with the plot. The story is skillfully written and hard to put down. This story demonstrates numerous examples of people judging others before they get to know them. I appreciated the scenes with both Summer and Colin with their majors/future careers. Summer is studying fashion design. Colin is double majoring in Fine arts and computer programming, wanting to develop video games. They both show integrity and strength. They help each other grow by balancing one another. THE CHASE has a great ending. I love the characters and would love to hear more about them in future books. I love Brenna Jensen and look forward to reading her story next in book two, THE RISK, expected to be released February 18, 2019. I’ll be counting the days. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
