The Chase

The Chase by Elle Kennedy Book Summary

The sexy first book in a new series* from New York Times and 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.

- great book!5 star

It’s definitely worth the read! I couldn’t put the book down. I love how the heroin put her mind into her work and never easily gave up. This book is super sweet and sexy. Absolutely loved it :))<3

- The chase5 star

I gotta say, it has been a while since I read a book by Elle Kennedy. I also had doubts but when I started reading, I couldn’t put it down. I loved the fact that the heroin came from money but wasn’t a snob or catty like most well off women. I really loved that the author gave her a learning disability that made it hard for her to write long essays but still made her an outgoing, open and trusting girl who made friends easily because she chose to trust people before she got to know them better. I’m guaranteed to read the whole series. It’s full of heart, laughter, and tears. ❤️ love ❤️ it. 🥰😊

- I Really Enjoyed It5 star

I wasn’t expecting this book to be this good considering it was free but I was proven wrong. I loved it. I fell in love with the main character and her love interest. Really great book.

What a great book! I couldn’t put it down! Finished it quicker than I intended but that just shows how great of a book it is!

I couldn’t put it down, what a great read!

- Nice story5 star

Worth the read. Elle Kennedy does not disappoint.🙂

- Hard to put down!5 star

I loved this book! It was sweet and sexy and romantic and funny! I’m on to the next one!

- Loved it!5 star

I actually didn’t want it to end! The thing I loved more and found most fascinating was Summer’s personality. I just wanted to keep reading her interactions with people and reading how Fitz saw her. I loved how everything was balanced, even thought there was kind of a love triangle, it wasn’t the annoying “she’s playing with two guys at the same time” it was actually understandable and I liked that. Overall I enjoyed reading it, obviously no book is perfect but I feel this one is almost there. Loved it :))

- Super sweet5 star

Honestly, I never expect to like girl main characters because a lot of people write them really bad. Personal opinion. I truly enjoyed this read, seemed like the characters were very genuine.

- Average4 star

It was not exhilarating enough but it was ok. Too much fluff and I guess it was just good not great but not bad either.

- The chase5 star

I loved it!!!!

- Awesome book!5 star

Really makes me want to keep reading!

- Couldn't stop reading!5 star

So good, the whole time I just kept wishing it could be made into a dramatic show. Would totally binge that!

- Can’t put it down..!5 star

I honestly hate reading ! I would rather watch the movie than read BUT as soon as I picked this books up and started reading it I could NOT ..once again I could NOT put it down.... I’m obsessed and now I’m going to read all the other ones.

- Interesting read4 star

It was a bit of a slow start but the book comes together after a a few chapters. This book will appeal to the younger set as the characters are based in college. The romance between Collin and Summer finally comes together and is very sexy and romantic.

- Loved this!5 star

I loved this. Few spelling errors. But definitely a great read.

- The chase5 star

Excellent story. Funny at times and I stayed up all night to finish. Like able characters with flaws to overcome.

- Great book5 star

Most definitely recommended. This is literally the best written book I’ve come across on ibooks and Summer and Fitz are like the poster couple for debunking stereotypes. Amazing plot, love all the side characters ( specially Brenna) and really appreciate how the whole rape in today’s world and Summer’s feminist side. Women do need to appreciate each other more. Anyways, overall great book and please keep writing more stuff like this.

- I’m in love5 star


- 5 stars5 star

Humorous, witty, thoughtful.

- Great story!!5 star

This was such a good read. The storyline was very thought out and the characters were modernized to the point where you could connect with some of the characters. This nice story leaves you at the end of your seat. If you love sappy, romantic, sexy books this is the one for you. You will not regret reading it!

- Love5 star

Absolutely loved it! Read it in a day, I was hooked!

- Summer is a Karen in training2 star

Summer is probably the most annoying main character I have ever read about. If she’s in college please allow her to have the mental capacity of a college student, I feel like I’m reading about a middle schooler and her crush. If I ever encountered a Summer in real life I would have to hold back from punching her in the face because we all know she deserves it.

- Fitz and Summer are relationship goals5 star

First and foremost, I loved how real Summer is. Her internal monologues reflect a lot other young women feel on a day to day basis. I really enjoyed how the author incorporated important topics like inappropriate sexual advances and learning disabilities. It really made the characters have more depth while not bringing the tone of the book down. I got butterflies throughout the whole book whenever Fitz and Summer interacted. They were such real and deep characters that it’s almost impossible to fall in love with them. I really loved this book and recommend it to everyone that loves funny and well thought out romance books!

- Great series!5 star

This is a great series! Read them all, you won’t regret it!

- The chase4 star

Great story though I found the verb tense used to be awkward in wording. Often my brain automatically switched to past tense, which was a bit frustrating to constantly do but made the story read easier and more fluent. Content and story wise though, it was great !

One of the first series I had ever read. Highly recommend. I read every book in the series and fell in love with every character and their stories. If you like this then check out the rixon raiders series!

It’s a good light romantic read. It has an element of realism, and I can relate to all characters at some points.

Who doesn’t love a nerd-jock? That’s like the most adorable combination. An athletic guy who is also super artsy and creative. Sometimes Summer got on my nerves but I love Fitzy & Summer together. They are super cute and I love Fitzy so much!

- Loved it!!!5 star

A great book. All the books from Briar University have been some of my favourites. Definitely one of my fave authors.

Great author!!! Check out all her books!

- Love love loved it5 star

Honestly one of my favourite books now. Just finished it. I couldn’t put it down, I just wanted to keep reading a be a part of these people’s lives. I was so invested and needed to know what happens and how it ended. That’s when you know you’ve picked up a good book. Can’t wait for Brennas story Although would love more of Summer and Fitz.

- LOVED IT5 star

Omg I absolutely loved this book! Ironically my 2 children are named Sommer and Hunter, and my names Breanna which completely freaked me out! But what a great book! I was worried there wouldn’t be a ‘twist’ but nearing the end it was there. It’s so great to read a modern book that’s so completely relatable. I’ve already pre-ordered the next one! Can’t wait 😜

- Great to be back in Elle Kennedy’s Hockey World5 star

4.5 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.

It’s a fun and interesting story

- Fantastic5 star

I love this book! Finally not a straight forward predictable love story. Hot, passionate will they won’t they end up together. Reminds me of Bridget Jones in there wasn’t only one possible love interest. The characters were all fantastic, laugh out loud and filled with raw emotion. Looking forward to reading more of her books.

- Taking A Chance & Finding Your Heart ♥️5 star

I know The Chase is one of the most anticipated reads this year for many people and let me tell you, Elle Kennedy did not disappoint! I loved Summer and Fitzy's story! It had all the things I love about the original Off Campus series - laughs, swoons, heart, emotion, and of course, sexy, sexy times! Briar U is a spin off series and though characters from the Off Campus series do appear, it can be read as a standalone. Right from the start, I got some Pride & Prejudice vibes from Summer and Fitzy. There's no denying their attraction to each other, but will her pride and his prejudice stand in the way of their happily ever after? There were definitely times when both characters frustrated me with the push and pull, but as their histories are shared, it made a lot of sense why they were reacting and making the decisions that they were. On the surface, they couldn't be more different, but they also challenge and complement each other in many ways. Fitzy and Summer were much more than people perceived them to be and though it was very yin and yang at times, it definitely worked! I loved all the build up and anticipation (though the collateral damage of Hunter did hurt), and I was left with a huge smile on my face as I turned the last page. One of my favorite things about this book though was Summer's friendship with Brenna. Those two were hilariously loyal and just so much fun! Summer and Brenna's lack of filters created some truly memorable moments and I especially loved their text messages to each other. I can't wait for Brenna's story in The Risk and that teaser excerpt at the end of the book couldn't have been more intriguing! I also was so happy to see little cameos by some of my favorite Briar guys and gals! I honestly will never tire of more Garrett or Tucker (swoon, swoon, swoon) and the little snippets of them in The Chase were perfect! Such an awesome start to this new series!

- A college romance filled with lust and forbidden desires that need to be set free...5 star

Wanting and chasing for what he cannot have, Fitzy finds himself enamored and enthralled with what is the sunshine that radiates from Summer in this compelling college romance... Everyone who knows me, knows that my love for anything that is Elle Kennedy is immense. Especially when it comes down to the Briar boys that captivated my heart back in 2015 with their unique mindsets and creative personas. My god did I miss all my Briar boys and all their perspective partners. Thankfully Elle has made a combat with Fitzy and Summer's love story. A romance novel that is filled with angst, fulfilling lust, and so much compatibility between these two individuals that come from two totally different worlds. For Fitzy, fighting his attraction towards Summer, Dean Di Laurentis' younger sister, becomes a task that is beyond difficult for him since he ends up becoming her roommate after an unexpected turn of events. Summer, being the sunshine individual that has always been, is also a fashion major who has been through a lot of trouble when transferring from one ivy league school to Briar U. Due to her learning disabilities, she ends up getting help from Fitzy and he ends up getting her help for inspiration when it comes down to his video game ideas. The obviously makes it obvious that Fitzy is a game designer major who also plays hockey for Briar U. How can one forget? The Briar boys have always had a special place in my heart when it comes down to college romances, and bless the soul of Elle for bringing them back in this novel. We get to see more of Tucker and Sabrina and their cutie little baby, which I am utterly obsessed with and want a story for her in the future as a Briar alumni. When encountering upon difficulties of Fitzy truly admitting his feelings towards Summer, he knows that his time is running out because of a third party wanting to have Summer all to himself. That triggers a lighting bolt on Fitzy making him realize that no matter how much drama, how much momentum, how much enthusiasm and socialism Summer may have, he still craves her aurora and personality. This is what truly captives the reader for more of Elle's writing. Overall, Fitzy and Summer are two individuals that are truly meant to be no matter the cost. And because Elle knows her readers so well, she introduces a new character who becomes Summer's new best friend; Brenda. That is the next story, The Risk. With a mysterious fella whom I kind of THINK know who it may be... And I am keeping my fingers crossed it is the individual who I want it to be because Brenda's story will be a wild ride. I am so glad to have read this novel, my craving for college romance is back and I need more!
