Review: Chased by Love: Trish Ryder (The Ryders #3) by Melissa Foster

Actress Trish Ryder takes her job seriously and has no time for those who don’t. When she’s awarded a major role in a new movie featuring America’s hottest rock star, Boone Stryker, she’s beyond excited. The six-two, tattooed hunk of burning desire is known for his dedication to his craft—but when he ditches their first meeting, she begins to wonder if he’s just another rocker with a great PR team.

Sex, booze, women, and music pretty much sum up Boone Stryker’s private world. He’s coasted through life playing by his own rules with plenty of people willing to cover his tracks, and he’s not likely to change—until he meets a woman who refuses to give him the time of day, much less anything more.

Sparks fly from the first moment Trish and Boone meet—Tensions run hot and desire runs hotter when they’re trapped together on a remote location with no place to hide. Will sparks ignite, or will a hurricane douse the flames?

Trish Ryder

The night I started this book, I couldn’t put it down.  Trish and Boone were intriguing and the sizzle between them was excellent.  There were a couple of scenes that gave my stomach a tingle just reading them.  Eventually, the need for sleep forced me to stop reading.

When I picked back up the next day I never regained that same level of enthusiasm.  I still enjoyed the book but it began to drag.  Once Trish and Boone realize they care for each other, they are solid and nothing seriously threatens their relationship though there are several situations that could have.  The sexual attraction between the two becomes less of a focus as the book develops.  It’s mentioned but not explored and I missed that.

The book is steeped in optimism.  Boone is the perfect guy despite a crafted bad boy reputation.  Trish is a sweetheart and untainted by her fame and acting success.  They both have many loving family members supporting them.  They fit well into each other’s families and are quickly accepted.  Though they each make a couple of missteps, they are minor and easily overcome.

What negativity exists is completely overshadowed by love and family.  There are situations that in real life are horribly painful; battles with drug addiction (one lost, one ongoing), the loss of a parent, poverty, a somewhat out of control younger brother, etc., but none of these situations quite reached that level of tension to keep the reader on edge.  To many readers this will not detract from the story but I felt it needed more.  The pessimist in me found the Cinderella story a little hard to believe.  You may love the book for that exact reason.  Foster is a very good writer and even my pessimist enjoyed watching Boone and Trish’s relationship develop.
