Kendall Holbrook is determined to make it to the top, even with the challenge of being a woman on the male-dominated racing circuit. She doesn't have time for romance-especially not with racing rival Evan Monroe, the man who nearly crushed her dream years ago. Tricked into meeting him, Kendall is experiencing all those old feelings again-and she can't deny that they still have enough chemistry to set fire to the track.

The Chase was just an okay read for me; I guess I expected more from this series. Both characters, Kendall and Evan, seemed like they had great promise. But upon getting to know Kendall better, I really didn't care for the way she treated Evan. Years ago as well as present-day, she shut him out of her life went all it would have taken was a bit of communication between the two. I could see her acting that way at the age of 18, but as an adult I would have expected her to have matured a little bit more.

With that being said, I'm not saying Evan was an angel but he clearly came across to me as the reader as loving Kendall more then she loved him. I truly tried to become invested and interested in these characters but I just couldn't. I was more interested in what was going on with Tuesday, Kendall's BF F, then either Kendall or Evan. Both characters came across a little immature. One would run away from their problems, and the other seemed to be a bit of a hothead.

I will be continuing this series because I liked the previous installments, and I want to know what's going to become of Tuesday.

What you published was very logical. However, what about this?
suppose you were to write a awesome post title? I
am not suggesting your information isn't good, but what if you added a headline that makes people want more? I mean "Review: The Chase by Erin McCarthy" is a little plain. You might look at Yahoo's
front page and see how they create post titles to grab
people to click. You might try adding a video
or a related pic or two to get people excited
about what you've got to say. In my opinion, it would make your blog a little livelier.
