The dynamic duo that is Jiffy Kate has done it again. They have once again provided me with a sweet and entertaining second chance romance.
Chasing Castles is told in past and present tense and is told from dual points of view. Chasing Castles follows the story of Deacon and Cami. Deacon and Cami have been best friends for the longest time, but Cami has always had deeper feelings for Deacon. One night, Cami finally is brave enough to let Deacon in on her feelings. The two of them share an unbelievable night together, but nothing more ever came from it. As time went on, both of them moved on with their lives. It will be many years before their lives will intersect again. They’ve both grown and their lives have changed, especially Cami’s. But, the feelings that they’ve been too scared to admit are still there. Will Cami and Deacon finally get their HEA? There is only one way to find out….
I have to say that I just adored Chasing Castles. The writing is so fun and engaging. It captivates you from the very beginning and the characters demand for their story to be told. I fell in love with Deacon and Cami instantly. I loved their friendship and how protective Deacon always was over Cami. I feel that he always had deep feelings for her, he was just to stubborn and afraid to admit it….I really liked Cami. I loved that she was a dreamer and that she wasn’t afraid to go after the things that she wanted in life. She never gave up or took the easy route, especially when things didn’t pan out as expected. I admired her strength and the way she loved those important to her.
I thought Deacon and Cami were great together. I loved that their relationship had a slow build to it. I loved how strong their foundation was and how no matter the obstacles that they faced, their friendship never wavered. You could tell that what they had was real and strong and was the type of love that was going to last a lifetime. I absolutely loved watching these two grow throughout the story and was totally satisfied with the way things progressed.
Chasing Castles is the second book in the Finding Focus series and was an absolute joy to read. Chasing Castles is a quick and easy read and is a beautiful friends to lovers/second chance romance. It is filled with lots of love, moments that will make you laugh and smile, moments that will frustrate you, and few twists thrown in along the way. This book is light on the drama and just the right amount of angst.
I really enjoyed Chasing Castles and can not wait to see what Jiffy Kate has up their sleeves next!
*I was provided an ARC copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review*
In case you didn’t notice, there are two of us.
We’re both from the south, one just a little further than the other.
Jiff was born and raised in Louisiana. She’s now living in Texas with her two teenagers and a bulldog named Georgia Rose. She loves purple and 80’s movies and geeking out at Comic Cons.
Jenny Kate was born and raised in Oklahoma. She’s the mom of a twelve-year-old and two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Wrigley and Oliver. She also loves Kris Bryant, the Chicago Cubs and coffee.
Some people think we’ve been friends forever, but in reality, we’ve only known each other for five years. Four of those years, we’ve spent spinning tales and writing words. Our first published book, Finding Focus, was released in November 2015.
If you like a romance set in the south, then you’ll love our southern fried fiction with heart and soul.
