 From The Book Junkie Reads . . .
I just don't know where to start. Beginning were it all started is the best place to go for these two. Simon and Quinn both have a thing for each other. One is to be married in a month. The other holds tight to the attraction and want more but don't dare dream it could happen. I had fun with this offering from Sharla Lovelace. This is the first read that I have enjoyed from her. It was enough here to get me to want more. I will start with getting book one in this series. 

The Chase family seems like a family I can get behind. There were a real family that had issues with each other and still could stand behind the family. Gran was something else. The shelter had a host of characters to make things interesting. The interactions between Simon and Quinn was a bit no no and then oh sweet, but then Quinn needed to gain perspective on her life before she could make a commitment to Simon. 

The Sweetest Chase is a read that could be read and understood all on its own, but me personally would like to have all the details to the wedding that takes place and creates some intense moment for Simon and Quinn. I would highly recommend reading Loving the Chase and then move on to my 3star rating of The Sweetest Chase.  I looking forward to the next Heart of the Storm series read.

Heart of the Storm series:
Loving Chase - Heart of the Storm, #1
The Sweetest Chase - Heart of the Storm, #2


Photographer Quinn Parker is getting married in a month, and she’s almost happy about it. Even though her mother is planning the whole wedding. Even though she’s secretly had the hots for Simon Chase forever. But he’s her best friend’s brother and her coworker . . . off-limits even if she were single. So she’s marrying the man who should be her perfect match—and that’s that.

Simon Chase’s life revolves around his family’s storm-chasing business. The meteorologist of the bunch, he’d rather be out in the weather than reporting it—especially if Quinn Parker is along to photograph the run. He’s been hiding his crush on her for a long time, and it’s only intensified. But she’s marrying someone else—and that’s that.

Or is it?  When a Chase family wedding sets the stage for body temperatures to rise and the pressure of Quinn’s impending wedding to build, a new reality breaks.  Quinn and Simon discover their unrequited affections have been mutual all along. When the gathering storm of their attraction finally reaches its peak, will it leave their lives in shambles? Or will they find shelter in each other?

It’s mutual, by the way.

No sentence had ever messed him up more.

Until today, he would have argued that point to the moon and back. Quinn was engaged to someone else and had never given any indication that she felt otherwise. Until today, she always treated him just like the rest of his family. Didn’t she? Until today.

Didn’t she?

Shit, he had no idea.

Simon rubbed at his eyes, suddenly wanting to scrub his whole brain. The way she’d looked at him—the way she’d acted around him—he thought he was just imagining things, but then Stacey said—

Fuck. And then that waiting for someone to stop her comment. He was done. He was useless.

Simon had spent the last two years she’d sported that ring telling himself it was all for the best. That Quinn was meant for better things, a better life—a better man. That what he felt for her was just physical attraction, just like every other woman in his life. He didn’t allow anything else to play around with his logic, there was no point. She was in love with Eric St. James. She was taken. She was—she wasn’t his. Period.

And then today happened. What the hell made today happen? Made her look at him that way, created that damn vortex that sucked them in? Suddenly, all that was concrete and solid was now made of fucking Jello.

Quinn was getting married in a month.

Or waiting for someone to stop her.
