Happy Release Day!
Eddie Neff needs space. Not the type that country stars croon about, but physical distance from her emotionally distant father and the tatters of a broken relationship. So when the opportunity to relocate her life and interior design business arises, the answer comes easily.
Adjusting to life with Claire, her gregarious new roommate, is more than simply testing comfort limits. With just one meeting, Eddie finds herself unable to resist the draw of Harris Grant, Claire’s brooding and overprotective older brother.
Harris doesn’t fit her idea of a safe relationship. He pushes Eddie to face her deepest insecurities and fears of abandonment. And Harris holds on to his own painful loss, unable to overcome personal demons.
Eddie and Harris must learn to conquer their internal struggles. But as they navigate their new love, outside forces fight to drive them apart.
Author note: In Pursuit is the first book in a two book series. Intended for 18+ readers.
I love books where the story and characters seem real. You know the kind, like you can see yourself as friends with the characters because they are so well written, you can relate with them. In Pursuit is one of the those books. From the moment that I started the book, I immediately connected with the characters. Eddie (Edith) is a very likable, real young woman. She is starting her life and career in a new city. Her new life comes with a roommate, Claire, your typical spoiled little rich girl. Then there is Harris, Claire’s brother which will take your breath away and finally, my favorite supporting characters, Sean and Luke.
In Pursuit is a witty romantic story. Eddie, is starting a new life in Chicago where her decorating business takes off. When she meets Harris, sparks fly. The interest in this delicious male is definitely there. As she gets to know him better, she learns that the interest is mutual. Everything is going well for her. Her professional life is thriving. She meets new clients and makes friends. Everything seems perfect. Harris is perfect. Their chemistry takes over and there is your hot and steamy love story.
Of course, all love stories have their obstacles. Eddie’s past and her present post hurdles in this story. Claire, the roommate, seems to have a problem with Harris and Eddie among other problems of her own. (no spoilers)
Cleverly written, In Pursuit will keep you hooked to the Kindle (in my case). The right amount of suspense and angst make this a great read.
The story ends with a cliffhanger. I can’t wait to see what happens to one of my favorite new couples, Eddie and Harris.
I gave Olivia’s debut book 5 shinning stars!
