Casey Grainger is not only the epitome of the girl next door, she’s the girl of my dreams. The blonde bombshell of a bartender who watches me with sky blue eyes, smiles with the sweetest dimples, and whose laughter is as melodic as chimes.
She stole my heart the way sunlight sneaks up on the day. Then a death in her family took her away from me. Now my heart lives in Texas while my body rots in New Jersey. As if that’s not bad enough, the ranch hand on her family’s farm is her damned ex-fiancé.
Austin still loves her, and he’s made it known. So Casey has a choice to make. It’s either him or me, but I’m far too stubborn to give up the fight.
That’s the one upside to having nothing left — I have nothing left to lose.
I don’t date musicians — I don’t date period — yet I find myself drawn to the dark and broody sound tech, whose wailing drum beats thump in time with the cadence of my heart. Beneath the arrogant grin and cocky one-liners, AJ Morello is a lonely man, burdened by the choices he’s made. But, he’s not the only one with regrets.
Mine goes by the name of Austin Krehley.
After seven years away, there’s still a connection. A tiny spark that slowly builds to a burning flame the longer I stay.
Two completely different men both hold two completely different pieces of my heart, but I can’t have them both.
A sexy country boy and a sultry rocker — how’s a girl to choose?
Nikki K’s Review: 5 STARS
Chasing Casey is not your typical “Rocker” book only because neither of the leads are actually in a rock band, but it is nonetheless a rocker romance! AJ is a talented drummer and sound tech for other bands. Casey has a musical past she’s kept a secret. There is always music playing . The budding relationship between AJ (the manwhore) and Casey (the good girl) will break your heart as fast as it heats your loins. These two feel destined to be alone, yet you can’t help but want them to end up together. Being from different worlds may be an obstacle, but as the saying goes, nothing worthwhile is easy. Without a doubt, I fell for AJ right along with Casey, and at times wanted to throttle her for not seeing what was right in front of her.
As a lover of Rock-N-Roll myself, I totally dig the way Jane Anthony always throws in little bits of songs or musical tidbits. Throughout my read, I found myself smiling at a song or band reference that Jane had hidden within the story. Combine that with the rhythmic way Jane writes and you have yourself a fun read. There is one line in the book that I read and knew that Jane Anthony is an author I will always follow. Her way of putting words together and weaving a story has made Jane Anthony my new reading addiction.
