My Thoughts:
Ryn Jansen has been holding Boone Sadler at bay even though he’s kind of her dream man. She’s afraid to take a chance fall hard and then lose him. But circumstances, and a kidnapping make her throw caution to the wind and go for it.

Boone Sadler is tired of seeing Ryn taken advantage of by her family and so he takes steps to open her eyes. Even though Ryn is glad to know about her family’s deceptions, she isn’t thrilled by how Boone took it upon himself to butt in without her permission or request. She’s pushed Boone away, but a threat makes it impossible to stay away from her. They have to sort out their hang-ups all the while trying to find out where the danger is coming from and how to neutralize it.

I’ve been a fan of Kristen Ashley for a long time. She definitely has her own signature brand of storytelling and it comes through in Dream Chaser. Ryn is typical of her heroines, strong and sassy, but with a few insecurities. Ryn has her a posse of female friends there for her when she wants to have fun or needs counsel or support, and I’ve always appreciated that Ms. Ashley usually makes positive female friendships part of her romances. There’s a little bit of a BDSM to this romance, but it was so light and didn’t really feature much, IMO.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Kristen Ashley without an Alpha hero and Boone fit the bill nicely. He was a jerk to Ryn in their first fight, and I was seriously ticked at him! I think Ryn got over it a little more quickly than I would’ve, but this is fiction and fun and so it was easy to get past that.

I think long-time fans will enjoy that this felt like Kristen Ashley getting back to her roots.  I look forward to Axl and Hattie’s story next!

  1. It sure sounds like a thrilling book

  2. I need to give Kristen Ashley another try at some point. I DNF'd the only one by her I've tried but then I read the synopsis of other books by her and they sound so good. :) I like the sound of Ryn in this one.

  3. I am not a BDSM fan at all, but the heroine sounds like one I would like.

  4. She is a hit or miss author for me. I like some of them. I enjoy the female posse. But some of her Alphaholes are too jerky for me.
    Excellent review Rachel!

  5. I am happy to see you enjoyed this one. I really liked Boone, yes he was a jerk at first, but smoothes out as the story progresses. I did enjoy this level of BDSM, it was light and felt more relatable.

    Great review.

  6. This story looks fun. Thanks for the giveaway!
