The Chase by Elle Kennedy Book Summary

New York Times bestseller! The first book in a new series from international bestselling author Elle Kennedy! 

Everyone says opposites attract. And they must be right, because there’s no logical reason why I’m so drawn to Colin Fitzgerald. I don’t usually go for tattoo-covered, video-gaming, hockey-playing nerd-jocks who think I’m flighty and superficial. His narrow view of me is the first strike against him. It doesn’t help that he’s buddy-buddy with my brother.

And that his best friend has a crush on me.

And that I just moved in with them.

Oh, did I not mention we’re roommates?

I suppose it doesn’t matter. Fitzy has made it clear he’s not interested in me, even though the sparks between us are liable to burn our house down. I’m not the kind of girl who chases after a man, though, and I’m not about to start. I’ve got my hands full dealing with a new school, a sleazy professor, and an uncertain future. So if my sexy brooding roomie wises up and realizes what he’s missing?

He knows where to find me.

*The Chase can be read as a standalone novel.

The Chase (Elle Kennedy) Book Reviews

Could have been written by a horny 10 year oldThis book literally could be a watt pad book it’s so badly written, and it has the most predictable, boring plot..Score: 4/5

Very badThis was so bad.Score: 1/5

WhyI’m sorry. I’m about 90% finished with the novel and I don’t think I’m going to stay for the end. Pacing was terrible. Main characters are shallow. The conflicts could’ve just been solved if the main characters talked to each other like adults. Good note: the book is free. I wouldn’t recommend if anything I stated bothers you..Score: 1/5

Not Worth the ReadThis book was a complete miss for me. It had very little redeeming qualities. It’s grammatically correct, but that’s about it. Plot is boring, characters are dull, the romantic relationship is blah. This book has nothing on The Deal, which is so much better. It’s slow with no worth the wait moment. And it’s not even slow in a beautiful artistic kind of way. It’s just a boring book. You stick around for the ending for no reason..Score: 1/5

Love this seriesI’ve loved reading this series. The characters are well developed the story lines are fun the hockey scenes are exciting and make me miss terribly going to hockey games. The sex scenes are exciting as well and scattered in the story with a good lead up that doesn’t leaving you feeling like your readings smut. If I wasn’t losing my job in two weeks ild have no hesitation buying the rest of the series, it’s possible I’ll cave and buy them anyways I just haven’t had enough yet and have to know what happens to hunter.Score: 5/5

♥️♥️♥️Great story! Love how real Summer is. She is confident but has her own insecurities and struggles with them and I think that makes her so relatable. And Colin’s struggle with his childhood also makes him someone easy to connect with. The chemistry between them is obviously undeniable and it’s sexy while also being super sweet. Great book!.Score: 5/5

Best read ever!!Did not want to put it down!!! so many details. must read..Score: 5/5

Elle Kennedy never disappoints. ❤️Four big stars for this amazing book. Lovers of the Off Campus series will enjoy this continuation of the same world. Summer and Fitz are incredibly relatable, in my opinion, and from the get-go you’re rooting for both of them. A slow burn, but passion and fireworks explode between our MCs. Even though side characters are given enough attention to make you want to devour this series back to back. Highly recommend!.Score: 4/5

She did it again!!!!Yes!!!!! So good! I’m not going to lie. I wasn’t planning on reading it especially since I hated Tucker’s and Sabrina’s story. I love tucker it more Sabrina I could not stand but regardless this book The Chase made up for it and it made me fall in love with this series..Score: 5/5

No thanks, and I’m done with Elle while we’re at it.Look, I knew this was going to be a poorly written book going into it. It was worse than I expected. Elle has some issues she needs to work through in therapy. Starting with the fact that all her characters are straight and white, and moving on to writing her main character to idolize a proven racist, Nazi sympathizer. And she obviously knew about it, because she defended Chanel when that point was brought up. Don’t even get me started on her “feminist values”. Yikes. Sick. I’m done. And let’s be honest, the smut is mediocre and vanilla at best. Find a better written book with more diversity and higher morals. Can we rate something to be less than one star?.Score: 1/5

Where have I been? I throughly got enlightened.Have to say I must have not been reading racy, sexy books with everything hanging out, nor females sucking off dicks and comfortable with it.

Perhaps a follow up!!!!.Score: 4/5

Colin & Summer - slow storylineThe storyline between Colin and Summer is very slow. For example, the book is over a thousand pages, but they don’t get together until you hit the 800’s. I wish more of the story had been focused on them together, as opposed to them individually doing their own things. Also, an epilogue would have been a nice addition for them since there was only about 200 pages of them actually together..Score: 3/5

LackingI’ve read the authors off campus series and really enjoyed them. I enjoyed this one as well but found the story to be lacking. It’s a bit slow and I didn’t like Fitz or Summer. I felt like a majority of story was them whining about each other..Score: 3/5

Definitely recommendElle Kennedy= such a brilliant new adult author. Of course, I knew that when I first fell in love with her and Jen Frederick's writing for the Royals Series (which I am obsessed with) and their other standalone novels. Briar U is the spin-off series for Off-Campus Series, which I have read the first novel of (and loved it). And The Chase follows the characters of Summer and Fitzy. Main Characters: ✧ Summer is ambitious. She loves fashion and is very upbeat, and she loves socializing. Summer is really the life of the party. I love her inner voice (Selena Gomez), and I love how she always lifts herself independently. ✧ Fitzy is a hockey player. Which is practically everything I need to know about him to already fall in love with. But, even though he plays hockey, he is also much more introverted than you would expect. Fitzy enjoys spending his time drawing and designing video games. It is a win-win. Summer & Fitzy's relationship It is an understatement when said that they are equivalent to "opposites attract." And they work so well together, well in the end, of course, the journey there was difficult, and there were many instances where I wanted to scream into my pillow and knock some sense into Fitz. I am really excited to continue this series with Brenna & Jake's story :).Score: 4/5

The chaseFirst book in a series, kinda linked to a previous series this author has written so there are a couple of familiar background characters. A nice, lighthearted read with lots of spicy bits scattered throughout. I’m neurotypical so I’m not sure about the accuracy of the whole ADHD part, but I did enjoy reading about a character that had really good support systems to help her and it was great to read that the academic institutions were set up to help her out… even if it is just pretend.

Great to be back in Elle Kennedy’s Hockey World4.5 Stars for The Chase which is book 1 in Elle Kennedy’s new Briar U series and this takes us back in to her steamy hockey world. Fitzy maybe a talented hot hockey player but he is also a bit of a nerd he is smart he loves video games but he can be introverted and sometimes struggles to communicate due to his abusive family history, he grew up with his parents fighting and that means he is not ready for a relationship. Summer has just transferred to Briar and she needs a place to live after her new sorority sisters refuse to let her move in so her big brother Dean calls in some favours and she ends up a roommate to Fitz,Hollis and Hunter. Summer has crushed on Fitz for a while so being his roommate may not be the easy life both these guys are looking for. Summer also has issues that she has to deal with on a daily basis she comes from a very successful family but she has a learning disability and each day brings a new challenge to the gorgeous girl that a lot of the other girls love to hate. The laid back Fitz may be the perfect match for Summer but will he ready to take the jump and see that relationships can work if you are with the right girl. This is a fun easy read that captivates you from the first page it has characters with real life issues it’s funny it’s sad and it’s a great read. Looking forward to the next in the series..Score: 5/5
