Amazon ** Apple ** Barnes & Noble ** Kobo ** Waterstones ** FoylesArmed with two years' worth of savings and the need to experience life outside the bubble of her Oregon small town, twenty-five-year old Amber Welles is prepared for anything. Except dying in Dublin. Had it not been for the bravery of a stranger, she might have. But he takes off before she has the chance to offer her gratitude.
Twenty-four-year-old River Delaney is rattled. No one was supposed to get hurt. But then that American tourist showed up. He couldn't let her die, but he also couldn’t risk being identified at the scene—so, he ran. Back to his everyday life of running his family’s pub. Only, everyday life is getting more and more complicated, thanks to his brother, Aengus, and his criminal associations. When the American girl tracks River down, he quickly realizes how much he likes her, how wrong she is for him. And how dangerous it is to have her around. Chasing her off would be the smart move.
Maybe it's because he saved her life, or maybe it's because he's completely different from everything she's left behind, but Amber finds herself chasing after River Delaney. Amber isn’t the kind of girl to chase after anyone.
And River isn't the kind of guy she'd want to catch.
I inhale sharply, the air hissing through my gritted teeth. I watch him lay the long cylindrical tube down in the grass with careful movements and dread washes over me.
Jesus, Aengus. You’ve gone too far this time.
Hopping to his feet, he snatches up the satchel and charges toward me, his cell phone in his palm, his head revolving as he scans the emptiness around us. I square my shoulders and brace myself for a collision with his temper, as swift and nasty as a black adder’s bite.
“Are you insane?” I bark when he’s within easy earshot.
The glint in his eyes—the color of an overripe avocado, beginning to rot—would suggest exactly that.
“You said no one would get hurt.”
“Do you see anyone around to get hurt?” he snarls, continuing past me, punching keys into his phone. “You’ve got exactly sixty seconds to get the fuck out of here, River.” He takes off at a light jog, not waiting to see if I’ll follow.
Because I always have.
Oh, fuck me. A current of adrenaline shoots through my core. I glance down at my watch. One minute. Less, now. Fifty-five seconds, give or take. The muscles in my thighs twitch, ready to tear after Aengus because there’s nothing else for me to do. But a lot can happen in just sixty seconds. My conscience keeps me grounded, my wild eyes scouring the paths around me for signs of life. A jogger bobs along in the distance, so far away that I can’t be sure whether it’s male or female. Otherwise, I see no one.
I glance at my watch again, my heartbeat doing double time with each second that passes. Only forty-five remain before I look damn guilty to whoever finds me here. Unless I rat out Aengus— which will never happen—I’m as good as locked up for this.
I need to run.
Except . . . that perimeter set isn’t wide enough. If someone should come around the bend, cut across the field . . . But what can I do, really?
Thirty seconds. Beads of sweat trickle down my back. I need to get the hell out of here. Now.
I turn, intent on going back the way I came. But movement catches my eye and my stomach drops as I watch the very thing I just feared unravel before my eyes. A girl runs through the field, her attention alternating between her wrist and the unfolded map within her grip, her brow pulled tight with worry.
She’s clearly a tourist.
She’s clearly late for something.
And she’s heading directly into the blast radius of the pipe bomb that’s about to explode.
I’m out of time. I don’t have a choice.
I run. As fast as my legs can carry me, I run.
Let me start with a little info here...After receiving Chasing River, I was headed on vacation to the UK. This trip also included visiting Ireland. While on my trip...and before going to Ireland, I read Chasing River.
I have got to say...this book will make you ache to visit there. While I was in Dublin, I was looking for River..LOL...
But seriously...K.A. painted such an amazing picture of Ireland. Detailing us with historic facts all the while weaving it all in to the story we are following.
It is such a brilliant tale that you will find yourself pining to find your own Irish guy...*sighs heavily*
We met Amber in Burying Water and while we only get a glimpse of who she is then, we already know a good bit about her personality by this point. As much as she wants to be a free spirit, growing up under the watchful eye of her sheriff father made her rigid in so many ways...
But meeting River allows us to witness a whole new Amber.
I enjoyed getting to know her better. Watching her come out of her shell and truly becoming a woman of her own. Not living under her dad's rules but making her own.
I loved how River pushed her out of her comfort zone and seriously ladies...if you met River, you would also be pushing all those boundaries out of the way... LOL
K.A. Tucker is one of those authors that I get so excited over when I know a new book is coming. I devour each one and Chasing River is now an added favorite in a long list of amazing books by her.
Chasing River is another magnificent story that has captured my heart. It is an action packed, fast moving tale that will grip you from the very beginning. Filled with gut wrenching moments and heart warming scenes, all the while raising your blood pressure from the hot steamy encounters of our beloved Amber and River.
A phenomenal series and enchanting tale that you will not want to miss...
Make sure you get this one ASAP!!!
