I know nothing of love.
Then again, I don’t know much about people
I’ve been burned enough to have lost my faith in them
Brannon seems to be an exception
For years, he has proved that I could trust him
But my past would surely drive him away
The question is, can he trust me?
Hayleigh is not my fate
But, she is my destiny
I need to convince her to trust me, to believe in us
For years I’ve stood back, and given her time
Now I need her to light the dark that is slowly consuming me
I want to tell her all of my secrets
The question is, will she survive them?

“They say when you meet the one you’re fated with, there is a rush of power, a feeling of strength and endurance which disappears the moment you are no longer in their presence. They say you can feel your souls fuse together, a connection that is almost unbreakable.”
What a fabulous read! Chasing Hayleigh is by far my favorite book in this series so far. I’ve been curious about Hayleigh and Brannon for quite some time now, and boy did their story knock my socks off. From the moment I started reading, I was sucked into Hayleigh and Brannon’s story. Their connection was instant, curious and undeniable. On the surface, Hayleigh longs for more. She wants to be happy, in love, have a family. But those things have never been in the cards for her. Hayleigh is holding on to a secret. A secret that has always kept her alone and unwilling to take a chance on more…Brannon….there is so much more to him than meets the eye. He always seems to be the funny guy, but really, he has a darkness that lives inside of him, and he can’t help but be drawn to the light that is Hayleigh. One thing we learn about Brannon pretty quickly is that he is 110% alpha male. He’s got his eyes and heart set and Hayleigh and nothing is going to stop him from getting what he wants.“You’re mine, only ever mine–no one but me. Baby, you have no idea what that does to me.” Brannon is so sure that he and Hayleigh are meant to be and made it his mission to show her just how right they can be together. He forced her to see that there were no real reasons for them to deny what they both wanted.
Chasing Hayleigh gave me everything that I was looking for and more. It was fast paced and well written. The characters were easy to connect with. Their banter was fun and entertaining. I loved getting to see my old friends from the previous stories and seeing how they all come together. Chasing Hayleigh had no shortage of laugh out loud moments, sexy times and of course we can’t forget about the action. I definitely feel like I have a better understanding of the series as a whole now and the real role that “fate” plays into everything. I loved all the twists along the way and couldn’t have asked for a better ending to Hayleigh and Brannon’s story. Not only did the ending leave me with a smile on my face, but then I get to the epilogue……The epilogue pulled the rug out from under me. It has me asking so many questions!! I couldn’t believe what I was reading! All I can say is that the stage is set for the next characters story and I for one will be waiting very impatiently to get my hand on the next story.
