I was gift a copy in exchange for an honest review. I really liked this book and thought that Olivia does a fantastic job of connecting you with the characters throughout the story. She takes you on a journey with Eddie that is filled with drama, some wit, and a hot sexy man that you would love to call your own. The book starts off with Eddie moving from her home town to Chicago to start new. She’s always done what was expected of her and is looking to change that. She finds a roommate to stay with in Chicago and it totally surprised at her new home. Her roommate is a little different. Her roommate also seems a little possessive of her as well, but she’ll put up with it if it means she get to say in that awesome apartment. Plus it seems pretty harmless. Another bonus is that her new roommate has a brother named Harris who is sexy as sin and she just can’t stop thinking about him. The more you get to know Harris, you see that he definitely is an Alpha male (which makes him super-hot) but he also holds so much inside it almost makes him the weak one in the relationship. Harris holds a guilt so deep you almost wonder if he will ever be able to so forgive himself, but Eddie is always there trying to reassure him and help him see not everything is his fault. She slowly starts to make him see that he wasn’t totally at fault and that he just might be able to move on. Shortly after Eddie and Harris start to date, his sister started in with the drama and tries to rip them apart. Will she succeed in her mission of keeping Eddie to herself, or will Harris and Eddie fight for what they have? Will Harris finally realize he doesn’t have to make up for the past, he can have want he wants and still be happy? It’ll be interesting to see what Olivia has in store for Eddie and Harris. I can’t wait until the next book comes out!!

In Pursuit is a very dramatic new adult novel.  Eddie has decided to move to Chicago to pursue her interior design business and blog.  She is set up with Claire as a roommate by a mutual friend.  Now I think Claire should have her own book - she is quite a piece of work.  While she initially brings Eddie into her inner circle it quickly becomes apparent that something isn't quite right with the girl.  Then we have Claire's brother, Harris.  He seems to be a bit off as well, but not quite so much in the wrong direction as Claire is. I haven't mentioned our star character much yet.  Eddie is a fun and energetic girl that seems to make friends and business relationships everywhere she goes.  She seems a bit too perfect and I was waiting to find her flaw for a very long time.  Her relationship with Harris is a very unusual one - he seems willing to anything for Claire but that seems to interfere with him living his own life - and having Eddie in his. There are a million ups and downs in this book and the story is very fast paced.  I enjoyed watching Eddie come into her own and living a life she chooses, but Claire, Harris, and crew seemed a little over the top for my taste at times.  I am interested to see what Eddie is going to do after the cliffhanger of an ending though. *This book was received in exchange for an honest review*

Eddie Neff leaves her old life behind to start a new one in Chicago. She ends up rooming with the rich socialite, Claire Grant. This new life of hers goes in a direction that she never imagined. Claire's brother, Harris is mysterious, brooding, and HOT. You feel the instant attraction he has to Eddie, but he tries to fight it. He has a heightened sense of responsibility to Claire, and his want or need for Eddie is in the way. Eventually, Harris can no longer harbor his feelings the more he gets to know Eddie. “Because holding you settles my chaos.” Eddie is a heroine that I really liked. While she has been through a lot in her past, she is strong and independent. She makes the move to another city and establishes her self professionally. She has a fighting spirit about her. Harris. Sigh. Where do I begin? He demands attention when he walks into a room. He's assertive and dominant in everything he does. Yet, he has a soft vulnerable side to him that we eventually get to see a glimpse of. Something tells me that we are going to get to see more into his beautiful soul. He is in unimaginable pain. You feel his pain as you read this story. You also feel his need and want to care about someone and to have someone care about him. It's like he's been afraid of feeling again, but Eddie breaks down that barrier and allows him to feel again. "Because you've shown me that there's a woman out there who can being me to my knees..." The author was able to successfully mix romance in with mystery. It allowed me as the reader, to keep thinking of what would happen next, and I was surprised at the twists and turns in the story. I found that it was a beautiful debut. It was well-written and I look forward to more of this authors work. In Pursuit is one of those books that you instantly fall in love with. I found myself, laughing out loud, yelling at the characters, and swooning over Harris. I loved the flow of the story. It kept me engaged and I found it hard to put down. The characters are unique and likable. I absolutely cannot wait until the next installment of this series is released.

My rating: 4.5 of 5 ¿¿ Interior designer, Eddie Neff is excited to start a new chapter in her life when she arrives in Chicago, ready to meet her new roommate and find new clients. Her new digs in Claire's apartment are above and beyond expectations, as is Claire herself, vivacious and rather intimidating. After life with her solemn and disengaged father, Claire's lack of boundaries would take some getting used to. It isn't long before Eddie comes face to face with Claire's older brother Harris and although the circumstances were not the best, he made quite the impression on her. Moody and irritated with his sister's antics most of the time, Harris may look like every woman's dream, but he sure didn't behave like it. It doesn't stop Eddie's body from responding to his proximity every time he comes around.  But Harris isn't immune to Eddie's looks or her alluring innocence and although his inflated sense of responsibility for his sister should keep him at a distance, he can't stay away from her. Finally giving in he carefully explores the sadness he has sensed around her and finds her opening up to him, both emotionally and physically. But when Eddie probes a little too close to his own demons, he can't help but shut her down. And before they have a chance to find some solid footing, both become even more unsettled when family decides to meddle..... **** I was warned it was a cliffhanger!!!! And now you are too!  There is going to be a second book in conclusion, aptly named: OF HAPPINESS, and I for one, will be frothing at the mouth until I can get my grubby hands on it...... BECAUSE there are some characters in this book who need their butts kicked!!! Oh yeah..... nasty meddling so and so's..... you'll see! I'm very impressed with a few things in particular about this book...... although it is not a suspense novel, there is a sense of 'foreboding' that Olivia Luck has been able to build into the relationship between Eddie and her roommate that was tangible from the start. Funny thing is, in the beginning, I thought I was imagining something, but as it turns out my sense was correct........something was off. Reading back, there was nothing specific that was said, or done.......just an atmosphere that Olivia was able to set up, that created a tension that was actually palpable.  And there were more moments like that in the book, where without using elaborate explanations or description, the author could set a tone or convey an emotion quite clearly. How? I'm not quite sure, I just know it surprised and impressed me. I like Eddie. She may appear innocent, but she is not stupid. I like how she responds when she finds herself in an awkward situation. She makes rational decisions.....uses common sense, and above all, thinks of her own emotional well being first. She needs to, if no one else will. Yay for Eddie! Harris is a good man, with massive baggage and some effed  up family dynamics. I know we want him to step up and be the knight in shining armour, but reality dictates that sometimes people take a while before they can wriggle themselves out of a set pattern into an appropriate response. Interesting storyline with family dynamics (or should I say dysfunction) being the dark horse in this tale. A smooth reading experience, an interesting and diverse cast of characters and a bit of piquante heat for the willing taste buds!!  But I still prefer a complete story!!!! ;) ¿An insightful, provocative and slightly disturbing division of alliances ¿ **ARC provided in return for an honest review.**
