    (I received an advance copy of this book for free. Thanks to SOURCEBOOKS Casablanca and NetGalley.) This was an adult contemporary romance story, featuring a girl named ‘Red’.

I did like the romance in this story, but it was a little annoying the way that ‘Red’ kept pushing Caleb away, even when he was really sweet to her, and I was a little surprised at the lack of sex scenes. The ending to this was a cliff-hanger. 6.25 out of 10

What can I say, I like to call it straight and say it like it is.

Personally, when a book makes me lose track of time and stay up until 1 am reading (as this one did), it's consider a winner in my mind. Not only did I stay up well past my bedtime reading this but this book was hard to put down. It was read in a span of less than 12 hours-8 hours of which I did eventually spend sleeping. The story started at a fast pace from the beginning with little to no introduction and it kept me hooked, introducing the characters and their backgrounds throughout. Admittedly, there are flaws for each of the main characters that could cause controversy or dislike to the story. I say this with each erotic romance/romance review though because often, there is controversy for the whole genre: the characters in these novels aren't supposed to be examples of "healthy relationships". It's helpful to remember that this is fiction purely meant to entertain readers, not a pseudo-manual to compare and contrast actual relationships in your reality. With that disclaimer being said, I really did enjoy this novel. Even though the two main characters had flaws (who doesn't) I really rooted for them and could read of the chemistry between the two. The novel had me racing through the pages because I couldn't predict what would happen next and I was totally absorbed in the story. I also enjoyed the age bracket of the two main characters which seems like an odd thing to say but it doesn't seem that we have many novels within the semi-erotic romance genre that have both main characters still in college/university. Upon completion of this novel, I'm desperate to read the sequel, "Always Red". I need to read more about these characters, their relationship, and what happens next! **Thank you to Raincoast Books for supplying me with an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review**

Gah, I can’t believe I’m being that negative, but really? What does Caleb see in her? Okay Caleb has his flaws too. Showing off his pecs and abs saying that is why he gets laid so many times?! **EYE Roll** Veronica is so jumpy she comes out with a knife in Caleb’s own home. Because you know someone who lives in a penthouse with a doorman can be robbed in broad daylight. It just didn’t make sense. Veronica was so pushy, so guarded, I couldn’t see ANTYHING redeeming about her. She was a nasty mean bitch who deserves to be alone. I’m SORRY! But that’s how I felt. AN ARC was provided

I love how he falls! The author is talented, no doubt. The book flows well and is captivating in many ways. I can see that she will be a talent for years to come. *edited to add - Forgot to say this is a 2 part series - minor cliffy * Copy received for review consideration

    Mindy Lou's Book Review

    Chasing Red is a college romance setting where the rich boy, Caleb falls for the poor girl Veronica. I had some adjusting to do with this book because the characters behaved a bit juvenile for my tastes, but then I reckon it's typical behavior of college kids. I didn't think this was going to be the story for me, but the more I read, the more Caleb drew me in. I'm such a sucker for a hero that only sees the heroine and that is what Caleb brings to this story.

I'm such a sucker for a hero that only sees the heroine and that is what Caleb brings to this story. The way he is so gone for her hooked and reeled me in. Caleb, the rich kid who can have any girl he wants falls fast and hard for Veronica, Red as he calls her. He's relentless in his pursuit of her but she is not wiling to fall for his playboy ways. She doesn't realize she's a game changer for him. There is a lot of pushing away by "Red" in this story but Caleb sure makes up for that with his constant charm trying to win her over. There is also other women/men drama. We got the conniving other woman who wants Caleb all to herself and is willing to do anything to get him and then we have the guy who's part of Caleb's crew but secretly resents that he is rich and likes to stir trouble. Typically, I don't go for these types of books, but I got to admit the author sucked me in. This ended on a cliffhanger and I need to see where the author takes this story.

    ARC provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Well I did finish it but boy was that a chore. Hero and Heroines were immature. The dialogue was silly at times. And I liked the hero more then the heroine, she was irritating. Writing was okay, pacing dragged at times. Rich, party, bad boy rescues girl in trouble. Girl is fearful, can she trust the guy?? Hero constantly trying to win her trust. They dialogue and inter monologue was high school, too immature for this girl.

    An intense romance full of anticipation. Described as a global phenomenon, Chasing Red by Isabelle Ronin, is a tempting coming of age read. Chasing Red centers around Caleb and Veronica, called Red by Caleb because of the color she wore the night he met her. The plot is fairly straightforward.

Described as a global phenomenon, Chasing Red by Isabelle Ronin, is a tempting coming of age read. Chasing Red centers around Caleb and Veronica, called Red by Caleb because of the color she wore the night he met her. The plot is fairly straightforward. The black knight in shining armor recuses the damsel in distress by giving her a place to live while she gets back on her feet. Caleb is a black knight because he’s an unapologetic player, but from the moment he lays eyes on Veronica everyone in the planet ceases to exist. He’ll not only give her shelter, he’ll stop at nothing to win her heart. “I need you to stop,” he whispered. “Stop?” Whatever you’r doing to me.” I need you get you out of my mind.” Due to her painful upbringing, Veronica has serious trust issues when it comes to the opposite sex and no matter how much Caleb makes fissures in her walls by proving himself worthy of her trust, she’s too afraid to let him in for fear of getting hurt herself and in doing so she pushes away the one person who’s loved her unconditionally. Will Caleb be able to win her heart? “This was something else. It was painful, almost unbearable. But it was the good kind of pain… I wanted to possess her just as she possessed me. She was fire, and I wanted her to burn me… consume me.” Aside from the over the top drama from Veronica, which would be better suited from high school adolescent than a college age girl but I understood and believe to normal for a young adult, I did wish there were more layers in regard to character development. But I’m sure I understand the appeal of this story and his name is Caleb Lockheart. Being from a well to do family, with a blessed physic and being the MVP in his basketball team to boot, Caleb never had a problem getting attention from the opposite sex but he’d begun to feel bored and empty, until he saw a girl in a red dress seductively dancing in a club who a few moments later rescued him from unwanted advances from female admires. She rejected him right after, but that same night their roles were reversed and he rescued her in a big way by letting her stay at his place. “I had been starved for love and affection for so long that I’d forgotten what it felt like. I had refused to let anyone in, afraid to be hurt again. But this boy holding my hand was stripping me of my armor bit by bit.” At first Caleb was a big flirt with Veronica, but as time went on he became determined to be the best man he could possibly be in order to be worthy of her. Not only did they have delicious chemistry, they were slowly forming a unique bond. Even though Veronica was determined to push him away and beat anything between them to a pulp. “She was like a puzzle that was missing a few pieces. Maybe I’d carve my own pieces to complete her.” I really have no idea what Caleb wants to be when he grows up but page after page he made me laugh, smile and swoon. His unwavering love and devotion to Veronica endeared me to him. I’m cheering him on and I truly hope that she’ll step up and be the girl not just that he want’s but needs. “Why are you doing this? What do you take care of me so much?” My Red. So alone. So lonely. I’m here now. “I don’t think you’ll believe me even if I told you.” I feel obligated to mention that there are other forces trying to keep these two apart but I believe Caleb is thoroughly invested in this relationship. There’s also a side plot between Caleb’s best friend Cameron and Veronica’s newfound best friend Kara that I’d like to read more about. Chasing Red is the first book in the Red duet by Isabelle Ronin. It is a full length new adult romance. It is told from multiple points of view and ends with a cliffhanger. * I was given an ARC of this book courtesy of the author via NetGalley.

So I was intrigued when I saw Chasing Red on NetGalley. A Wattpad phenomenon, Chasing Red promises exactly what I look for in NA books: college kids falling in love and lots of drama. The problem was I didn't like the drama and I didn't fall in love with the characters. Told from the POV of both main characters, Caleb and Veronica, the book simply lacked any wow factor for me. Caleb's POV chapters were a little better than Veronica's, but not good enough to impress me. As to Veronica, I simply didn't care for her that much. I couldn't connect with them, which means the book didn't have much of a chance of intriguing me. I was mainly disappointed because the premise in itself usually hooks me. I'm a sucker for "the girl in trouble goes to live with bad boy and they fall in love" kind of story, but the lack of chemistry between Caleb and Veronica, the stilted dialogue, and my lack of connection with the characters kept me from fully enganging with the story. No matter how hungry I was for another college romance book, Chasing Red didn't do it for me.

    This story was much more than I thought it was going to be. I expected some college slapstick humor, along with lots of manwhore behavior. What I got was a great story full of romantic angst. Veronica has a very good reason to not trust men. She’s a strong independent woman and she has no need for anyone to save her. Caleb has a natural protective personality. It’s his nature to want to take care of those in need. When he learns the woman in red is homeless he offers his spare bedroom as a place This story was much more than I thought it was going to be.

She’s a strong independent woman and she has no need for anyone to save her. Caleb has a natural protective personality. It’s his nature to want to take care of those in need. When he learns the woman in red is homeless he offers his spare bedroom as a place to stay. He doesn’t hide the fact that he’s attracted to her. Caleb immediately sets aside his player ways because there is only one persona he wants to be with and that’s his Red. She’s his everything. Now if he can just convince her to give him a chance. I loved how dedicated to her he was. From the moment they meet he’s all in and there’s nothing that’s going to change those feelings. Unfortunately, this had some other woman and other man drama which cranked the angst up to obscene levels. I’m not a huge fan of this particular ploy but I accepted it for what it was. After all, it works for this story. My heart was absolutely breaking at the end although I felt Caleb picked a really awful time to push for her trust. This was a slower paced read that sometimes bogged down under the weight of these characters internal musings, but overall was enough to make me want to know what happens after this huge cliffhanger.

    I must say that I had high hopes with this one... But while reading and after, I didn't feel as much as connected to the story and to the characters as I hoped I would. The author knows how to write but I think I was intimidated and got bored with all the dramas in the entire book. I don't read Wattpad so I read this one without knowing anything about it, and if it's a series, I hope the next one is less dramatic.

I really have no idea what I'm reading and why I keep trying to push myself to finish it. So, I'm calling it quits. I love a good contemporary romance, but this just isn't for me at all.

    1.5/5 stars. I had heard about this book on Wattpad a lot and had seen that most people love this book. 🤧 I've no idea what's so appealing in this story...there are many Wattpad stories with similar plots. So obviously it lacks originality and is very predictable. And overrated. And some scenes don't even make sense. The male lead is supposed to be swoon-worthy, I guess but I don't see anything special in him or the other characters. Not worth reading in my opinion.

    I loved it. There was just enough drama and back story. I'd read it again

    *2.5-3 Stars* This story was uneven for me. I liked the premise but I think the execution could have been better. I was kinda bored through some of it, the characters were underdeveloped, and while I felt like the ending was where it got interesting the reasons were silly. I'm gonna mull it over and then write my final review. *** I want to preface my review by saying this is my opinion.

There are many readers who have enjoyed Chasing Red so if you're interested don't let my opinion dissuade you from checking it out. The story just didn't work for me. Here's my opinion of what sort of worked and what could have worked better: *Premise The premise was intriguing. I mean, it drew my attention and made me want to read the book. However, the execution was lacking. The story was uneven and I was often bored.  *Characters The characters were underdeveloped but did have their moments. Seeing Veronica with her girlfriends, Beth and Kara - who were both a hoot -  and Caleb with his friend Cameron and even with his longtime girl friend - whose name escapes me. Hmm... These interactions enabled me to learn a little bit about who Veronica and Caleb were, something that didn't happen when they were together. Despite sort of liking the characters, I felt they were mostly one-dimensional. There wasn't any real character development so I never felt a connection to them, which makes it difficult to engage with their story. *Tension & Climax The last quarter or so of the story might have been the most exciting. The "villain" was rather evil-minded and I liked the tension she created. But it was silly and melodramatic reasons behind that tension. Maybe it was just my mood but Chasing Red was an uneven read for me. I didn't enjoy it as much as I was hoping I would. I'm not sure I'll read the next installment since I'm not really invested in the characters enough to care what comes next. **I received a copy from Sourcebooks via Netgalley.

And, for the first time in his life, he really wants something—someone. Too bad Veronica's heart might just be the one thing Caleb can't win.           Chasing Red was an okay read but I would suggest maybe slotting the book as an NA rather than Adult romance due to some of the more immaturity and mentality of its h/h which kind of reminded me of a West Side Story type of romance for the younger minded readers working their way from teen to adult period. Opposites side of the tracks kind of relationship for those who really like those type of love stories Chasing Red totally works. But I felt there could have been more character development that brought them further along as a couple and as individual people.       Until next time book lovers...     Krissys Bookshelf Reviews received a digital copy in exchange for an honest review from Sourcebooks Casablanca.

    Read on Wattpad Too many characters, too much whining, too much drama. Did not like the female character and could not see what the male character saw in her. Way too long.
