The Chase

The Chase Reunited And It Feels So GoodThe classic ballad Reunited by Peaches Herb is both the right title, and the lyrics are the right description, for this deceptively sweet, erotically complete, modern cowboy saga The story of Brew and Chase is a bit familiar Mid twenties guys who went their separate ways after avoiding each other in high school in a small conservative farming community because of their unspoken and erotic feelings toward each other get reunited by happenstance and circumstance and instantly fall in lust and love.Nice premise, often badly portrayed However, I was so impressed by how Erin O Quinn handled a 1920s love affair in Ireland between two masculine men in The Gaslight Mysteries series that while waiting for the fourth to be published Thin as Smoke , I decided to see if she could do for American characters what she did for the ones in Ireland And, wow, did she deliver Chase the rancher and Brew the spoiled rich kid are secretly, and openly, gay respectively Chase and his father are carrying on the family business very quietly after his mother died suddenly, while Brew has come home for a break from college to once again confront his homophobic father and his sympathetic mother How they get together and carry on through a very interesting, but somewhat convoluted plot which is fairly easy to solve, is described in almost lyrical prose by O Quinn, who invites you in to entertain, and educate, you and gets your spirits and libido going Yeee hah 2.5 3 starsUm I m not sure what to think of this book It looks completely conjured from the depths of imagination The ties with reality or realistic approach seem so, so fragile Well, if you go with this mindset then I guess it s quite entertaining and strangely funny.But let s take a look at the story We have Brew, a rich young man nearly off college His ties with his family are fragile at best He loves his mother but his relationship with his father ended the day he learned Brew was gay A homophobic at heart his father withdrew completely from his son, replacing his love with his money, anything to keep Brew happy but away from him And Brewthan happy did exactly that until the day when he s required to come back home and take care of the family mansion while his parent are needed to the side of a dying uncle.Yes, Brew is not happy with that, and is even less happy when somehow he trips with his own words and gets manipulated to work for the time he s to stay in Noble at The Chase ranch In between trying to think of a way out he is completely taken by surprise when he sees the Golden Boy, the jock, the most desirable God ever stepped foot in high school, Chase Brew always has been eloquent with words, but right at that moment, a deep feeling of something profound and life changing to happen sizes him and he s rented speechless.And on the other hand we have Chase, Mr Popular once upon a time, now he s just glad he s working his ranch with his father He is content with his life and if his deep midnight fantasies were to come true he d be even happy If only he could have the owner of those dark mischievous eyes Well he got his wish alright the moment he enters his home and sees parked on his couch the Golden Mouth Brew was two years his junior but Chase remembers him well, remembers the snaky, slightly ironic Brew, whose mouth had a way to make him melt He remember sitting for hours watching brew play or on his debates when he would always turn things to his favor with that perfect mouth And now he s here to work with him God have mercy The story for this point on is easy to imagine Brew is an experienced gay man and Chase has been waiting for him forever They hook up pretty quick, they make love faster even and in the span of three day they declare they love for each other When a big mining company shows to Chase s doorstep to claim part of the ranch where a mine resides, the two lovers will combine their forces to drive them away Things get bad before they get worse but in the end love prevails Both Chase and Brew find peace within themselves and true love with each other.And this is precisely why I felt this story looked a bit like a fantasy It took me back to the romance years, even a bit Regency The dialogues though were funny as hell, or at least I thought so There was humor there and even while reeling with the plot and the I ll love you forever declarations within the week, I was also laughing at scenes and chuckling without meaning to And that s when it hit me that if you go with the overly romantic mindset and you know what to expect, then you might enjoy this book and actually have a fun read After all both men were supremely hot and sexy and they came together like dogs on heat over killing the sex part That alone was worth reading for me So in the end what I d recommend is for romance western fans to get in the mindset and just enjoy the ride.Thommie The Chase is a great story As I read the story it wasof a cross between a contemporary and western You have Brew Lloyd who is the son of one of the towns best lawyers and Chase Grayson who is the son of one of the ranchers and mine owners Being in a small town the young men did know of each other but didn t hang out in the same groups Brew was a couple years behind Chase He was into the arts in school he performed in the school plays, was on the debate team and is openly gay Chase was the football hero He worked the ranch and partied with his friends Unlike his friends he didn t chase the girls He was fascinated with a vision of a male form with elusive dark eyes Two different lives but they did have one thing in common, the dream of the one person who could make them happy.After graduation Chase stayed on the ranch his father owned, the Chase Ranch and Mine He and his father Roy Grayson worked the two thousand acres by themselves taking care of the land, cattle and the up keep of the mine The mine is an old silver mine They don t work the mine it isof a family keep sake, part of their land and history Which someone is trying to take from them Someone has filed a claim with the BLM stating they actually own the mine So Roy contacted his old friend Cranley Lloyd to help him out with this problem After Brew graduated he left town to go to school and live a happier life in LA But now he finds himself back in the small town he left knocking on his own front door He has returned at the request of his father Well if you call being reminded of where the money you re given for tuition and playing comes from a request Brew actually considers the moneya bribe than a gift After all his father basically abandoned him when he found out his only son was gay Cranley Lloyd didn t physically abandon his son He let the friendship and love disappear from their relationship This leaves Brew a little bitter So while he is watching the house for his parents while they are gone for a family emergency He lets his dad know he really can t stay long He needs to get back to LA for a possible job.But as we know the best laid plans of mice and men often have a wrench tossed in them Brew now finds himself sitting across from Roy talking about a job helping on the ranch It seems with the legal troubles Roy can use some help with the daily chores As Brew is trying to figure a way out of this Chase enters the room Now as memories of Chase from his high school days enter his mind all he can think is when do I start Chase on the other hand is now confronted with the man with the elusive dark eyes of his dreams Now the fun and intrigue start The fate of the Ranch and Mine, our two young men, their future and the relationship between fathers and sons are all at stake Small towns have a lotexcitement than people think. 2.5 3 stars.I had some issues with this story I liked the characters and I think the relationships could have developed well BUT it seemed rushed Chase has a secret that he struggled with his entire life, and that struggle is thrown out the window within a few short hours And everything happens way too fast Others may disagree but I had some issues with the rush of the story Sorry, I wanted to really like this book. Someone has done her homeworkThe overall love story in this book is very well written and believable The everchanging POW of the narrator gives us the full story.This is a story that touches on many different themes The grief that follows the untimely and unexpected loss of parents.The nervousness related to coming to terms with one sexualityThe love that dared not speak its name but now shouts it from the rooftops.I love the fact the writer has done her homework and has included unlike all other MM writers I have read the necessary preparations you need to do when having MM sex She lets it have it s natural place in the proceedings thank you for that.The crime solving storyline is a bit thin and a bit too easily solved, that s the only point that could be improved in this otherwise great book. It was an okay but forgetable read The main characters didn t talk in high school but pined after each other, years later they meet again and there is an instant attraction and almost immediatly they have sex altough one of them is a virgin , not very believeable to me. 3.5 stars.I am not sure what to say about this It was better than the first one and I would not say I hated it, I just didn t love it either If I had to read one again, it would be this The characters were better than the last book too. Review to follow soonI m still basking in the glow of this wonderfully easy, deeply satisfying story.
