Tate is a girl who grew up poor, always having to care for her siblings. She meets Matthew who is from a large, close family who worked hard but was not lacking for anything. They are instantly attracted to one another but Tate can't quite believe that Matt would be serious about her. They have some bumps along the way but work through their family differences to have their relationship grow into something that cannot be denied. It is a sexy, romantic love story that I enjoyed reading every page of. The characters are very well developed. I enjoyed the entire Chase series. The men of the Chase family are all very caring, sexy, strong men who know how to treat their ladies. Their Mom provides some touching humor into the mix. I would recommend the entire Chase series as being compelling love stories with some explicit sex. Each book stands alone but it's nice to read them in the correct order.

It was such a sweet story, though it had some sadness it ended up with a happy ending.

The book was great. The only thing I did not enjoy about it was the fact that she continued to be refered to as the fat girl from the wrong side of the tracks. Even after it was clear they would be together. I didnt think it was necessary to constantly remind us that they were from two different worlds. After it was established that he loved her for her, those comments should have ended. But overall the book wasa success.

This one is not as good at the first. But that seems to normal in life. It is good enough. I enjoyed it, the plot was a little forced, and too much had to be explained. The flow and tone were not as natural as in the first of the Chase series.

I enjoyed the story line, however it was very hard to believe they cared and loved each other with the crass language used during sex. What a major turn off!! Also totally buggy, Matt had to be the one to accept how Tate handled her family and him. Everyone kept excusing Tate's behavior and making it ok just because of her past and what she was dealing with. Matt had every right to be hurt. How hurt he felt and how sorry she felt was so glossed over it was hard to believe they actually were. Yes, what happened to Tate is tragic, but not learning to deal with it and that her actions hurt others makes it hard for me to believe that Matt and Tate will live happily ever after.

This was by far my favorite of the Chase Brothers books. Matt and Tate are amazing and work really well together. I really liked the change from tall strikingly beautiful woman to small curvy and beautiful, because small and curvy can be as attractive as tall and thin. Throw in the issue of "class" division within a small town and you have an interesting book. I feel Ms. Dane's writing style has grown and expande through the writing of this series.

The Chase brother series has made me fall in love with the effortlessly flowing writing of Lauren Dane, with the extended Chase family, and the wholesome, handsome, and charming brothers who fall hard, and love even harder, once they find their soul mates. Matt might be the last single brother, but he is no different from the others when it comes to finding the right one. He takes one look at Tate and he only has eyes for her. I loved the energy, the connection, the chemistry between Matt and Tate. Even if the feelings are fast to develop, the relationship takes time to build up and find its rhythm. Tate and Matt are truly a perfect match for each other if the rest of the town would just realize it as well. My heart wept for Tate and her siblings because of the way some people in town were treating them. Tate is a beautiful, independent, and tough lady, she had to be to survive the way her parents treated her and her siblings. She is a generous soul, she takes care of the people around her, always puts others first, but she is no doormat, she can stand up for herself and protect herself when needed. Her difficult upbringing, the poor circumstances she was born into, and her curvy body gave fuel to some to mock her, bully her, trying to put a wedge into the relationship she was building with Matt. The drama and trouble seem to follow them on each step, but no matter how tough things get, Matt and Tate know what their heart's desire, and especially Matt is not willing to give up on the best thing ever happen to him. Making Chase is not only an emotional, passion-filled love story between Matt and Tate, it is the perfect ending for the series, a wrap up with the whole family, that will leave the readers smiling, satisfied with all the feels pouring out from the pages. Sexy, smart, and entertaining romance with lots of emotional depth and social issues that will make you check your own inner compass. Definitely a series I want to be revisiting again and again. ~ Five Spoons

BOOK BLURB Previously published; newly refreshed by author. The Chase boys. Ridiculously hot and notoriously single. All of Petal, Georgia, is waiting for the last Chase brother to fall. At least, that’s how it feels to firefighter Matt Chase, who’s getting a little anxious himself. His brothers have all found love—why hasn’t he? But fate, in the form of a curvaceous hairdresser, is about to change that. Salon owner Tate Murphy has come a long way from her trailer-park roots, taking care of her seven siblings along the way. Even though she’s put the past behind her, she knows someone like Matt Chase is way out of her league. But that doesn’t stop her from getting a good eyeful every chance she gets. When a car accident throws them together, Tate gets more than an eyeful—she gets the whole package. Not that she’s complaining. But when small-town bias and her own insecurities get in the way of their relationship, Matt will have to prove he doesn’t care where she came from…only where she goes. The Chase is on. One small town. Four hot brothers. And enough heat to burn up anyone who dares to get close. Don’t miss the other books in the series: Taking Chase, Giving Chase and Chased. This book is approximately 70,000 words Edited by Angela James My Thoughts 4 brothers fall 1 by 1 with Matt Chase being the last holdout, that is until he meets Tate Murphy. The rest of course is history in the making as the 2 find themselves slowly but surely getting to know each other through lunches together, dinner dates and other meetings that take place both alone and in the company of either Chase or Murphy family members. For Matt and Tate both their respective families are the most important bond, but their explosive chemistry with each other is nothing to sneeze at either. Like his brothers before him Matt Chase has never been without female companionship. The feminine sex has fallen to his good looks and charm for his entire life so finding a woman who challenges him never seemed to be in the cards. Now however that has changed for Matt. Tate is everything he was looking for and more as she has not only a strong character but takes no bull from anyone, especially not Matt. Having always been the caregiver in the Murphy family Tate finds it hard to let someone else take on that role on her behalf. Matt however persists in breaking down her barriers, both the ones she has had to erect to keep from succumbing to despair over poor treatment from certain Petal residents as well as her own less than stellar parents. What one takes away from this book on both Matt and Tates behalf is at once simple and yet also complicated. The old adage to never "judge a book by it's cover" point is strongly driven home. Matt has always been judged for his good looks and laid back approach to life. Leading those around him to not only consider him just a pretty face and someone only interested in a good time rather than any long-term commitments. Tate has the opposite problem as she is not conventionally pretty but instead she is short, overweight and enjoys bright colored clothing rather than more subdued attire like a "real lady" would wear. After many stops, starts and stalls both Matt and Tate turn Petal Georgia on it's ear. As the last Chase picks the girl from the "wrong side of the tracks" and Tate shocks those who would separate them life in the small town becomes even more interesting. [EArc from Netgalley]

This is by far my favorite Chase book. They have all been good, but it’s Tate Murphy that really stands out in this one. Usually in Romance novels you may find a girl with issues, but she’s always very pretty and fit. It’s so refreshing to have characters like Tate who is a bigger girl, but yet that isn’t the focus of who she is. Oh boy and that Matt Chase. What is there not to love. The way he handles Tate and all their differences is completely swoon worthy. This was a great end to the Chase series.

I think Matt might be my favorite brother … but don’t tell the others :) He’s patient, caring, and smart enough to realize what a great thing he could have with Tate. I love how he takes his time wooing her, in a way that she doesn’t even realize what is happening until she’s too far gone over him. Tate may have a few insecurities thanks to the way she grew up but I love her grit and spunk. She’s a little prickly but it is totally understandable, Not too much for the Chase charm to overcome, of course. And the closeness of the Murphy family is awesome to behold, enough to rival the Chases, and I do think Dane handled their issues really well. It was realistic and gave a believable drama moment between Matt and Tate that worked well with the relationship they’d created. I do wish a little more time had been spent resolving the issues with how Tate is viewed by people in the town. There are “mean girls” who make trouble for her and for the most part they handle them really well. I just needed one more scene, I think. I felt like it wasn’t quite wrapped up as much as it could have been, especially with how well the family portion was done. Realistic characters with real world troubles and believable reactions, Dane does a fabulous job giving her readers an awesomely emotional finale to her Chase Brothers series. **Review given honestly and freely after receipt of a reader copy. This opinion is completely my own and was not influenced in any way.**

I received a free, advanced copy of this book from This is my unbaised and voluntary review. With the help of her older sister Lilly, Cora Preston fled with her 12 year old son, Micah, from his abusive father in Denver, to Gracely. Lilly is now married with twins and is the PR specialist of her husband's business, Mile High Adventures. Cora was tasked to start Mile High Weddings, a wedding planning division of Mile High Adventures. Her first customer is ranch owner, Deb Tyler, who after being a widow for a long time, is marrying again. However, the man she is marrying is 10 years her junior and her children don't trust him. The oldest son and ranch foreman, Shane, will do anything he can to stop the wedding. Both Cora and Micah are suffering from the aftermath of many years of abuse, but don't want anyone else to know. When Micah gets kicked out of basketball camp, Deb offers Cora the chance to have Micah help on the ranch. Micah falls in love with the horses, and the Tyler family. Both Cora and Shane are both fighting demons of their past. Will they find their partner in the other? This is the fourth book in the series, but I read it as a stand alone. Since there was no Prologue or short synopsis of what had happened in the first book, which was Lilly and Brandon's story, I was left guessing if Cora's past had been revealed previously, or the elusions of what her ex had done, was on purpose, so it could be revealed slowly. The characters are adeptly developed and the conflicts of family dynamics and secrets are artfully explored.

Matt chase is the last single one of the Chase Brothers. He knows that's about to change as soon as he meets Tate Murphy. She's beautiful, smart, sexy, and everything he's ever wanted in a woman. Getting the girl is the easy part though. Getting past her low self esteem issues while the small town of Petal does everything to keep her down is the hard part. Matt's ready to fight for her but is Tate ready to fight for them or will she let narrow minded people keep them apart. I've really enjoyed this entire series and recommend not only this book but all four in the series.

Finishing the series of books based on the Chase brothers. Shows that true love can exist and triumph. Also introduces a slew of new characters in Petal Ga that are in need of romance. Lauren Dane can easily write about Petal Ga for many more books.
