    I have a love affair with Kylie Scott's writing. Her characters have this humorous, self-deprecating voice that just chimes with me. In Chaser we finally get Eric's story, who is Joe's brother, male main character of 

    . Back when I read Joe's book I was curious how the author will make me love the immature, self-absorbed man-ho Eric was portrayed as. I'm happy to report that Kylie Scott passed with flying colors.

    Eric's friends have been really hard on him lately, telling him that he is irresponsible, unreliable and doesn't have anything else but women on his mind. The one person who harps on about his devil-may-care attitude is Nell, the woman he almost had a baby with. Not being taken seriously gets to him and he starts to look for ways to change the image his closest friends seem to have of him and it doesn't only have to do with the young single and very pregnant woman who just moved to Coer d'Alene. Although Jean is really sweet he needs to take it slow.

    In the beginning he goes about it the wrong way and his attempt at a serious relationship with his fuckbuddy was hilarious. He realizes fast that you can't force a connection which seems so effortless with Jean. When Jean goes into labor and nobody else but Eric is available to be her birth partner a deeper connection builds between him and Jean but also, completely unexpectedly, with her newborn daughter, Ada.

    Eric's growth throughout the story is phenomenal and completely believable. He has a couple of hickups along the way and sometimes needs to backtrack and readjust but it is obvious that he wants to change to become a better man. When Ada enters his life he falls head over heels in love with her. The way he was with her was adorable, funny and heartwarming. His love for his baby girl was so palpable. I fell in love with Eric, with his humor, his loyalty, his mellow, good-natured attitude and the way he stopped thinking about himself and started being considerate and thoughtful. His transformation from bad boy to dream man was beautiful.

    Jean was a likable heroine but - and this is my only quibble - we didn't get her thought process. I never could get a proper read on her so up to the end I didn't know Jean really well. I commend the author for doing a single male POV story but I had troubles warming up to Jean in a way that I wanted her as a friend. She just stayed a stranger to me. Maybe it was the author's intention that decisions Jean made were just as much a surprise for the reader as they were for Eric. I think it excludes the reader from Jean's own development and stopped me from falling in love with her along with Eric.

    The person who really rubbed me the wrong way was Nell. Granted, she had a reason the way she was with Eric but, come on, give him a break! She said she loved her friend yet she never gave him a chance to prove that he meant that he wanted to change. When she insulted him for the umpteenth time I felt my head swell and get hot.

    This isn't the way somebody talks to a friend and as much as I felt sad for Nell in Twist I really hated her in Chaser.

    This installment is pretty low in the angst department. I loved Eric's and Jean's friendship - trust had to be established first before it could lead to more so it's a slow burn. But I didn't mind at all - I loved their friendship so much! Eric's wise-cracks and quips are what make this story so incredibly enjoyable. He and Ada are the stars in Chaser. I loved to reconnect with Joe and Alex and we also get cameos from the Stage Dive series. Kylie Scott remains one of my favorites, I can't see that changing anytime soon.

    Overall, it was a heartwarming story with one of the best male POVs I have ever read!This series is a must read you should definitely read them!

    Kylie Scott is hands-down one of my absolute favorite romance authors.... she writes the most fabulous characters.... all with such amazing senses of humor and self awareness.... especially when it comes to her male characters... I think I’ve fallen in love with all of them and Eric is no exception.... this book was told entirely from the male point of view and I loved it....

I think the only thing I missed out on a little was getting to know Jean a bit better....

    Eric is the player... he’s never been in a committed relationship.... and he is definitely not getting involved with seven months pregnant Jean, babies kind of scare him.... Eric’s inner dialogue throughout this entire book was quite hilarious.... I found his character development so wonderful and reel..... The friendship that develops between him and Jean was refreshing and his moments with baby Ada were quite adorable..... I love a good friends to lovers story and this one was perfection!

    You can read this book as a standalone, although characters from the previous books are definitely involved... and bonus the StageDive boys make an appearance...and Mal was up to his same old shenanigans, loved that!

    Strongly recommend to fans of romance, with fabulous characters, and a little fire🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

    *** thank you to Kylie Scott, the publisher, and Net Galley for a copy of this book ***

    I adored Eric and Jean’s story!!!

  • Jilly

    This is definitely the best book in this series. I liked the first one, the second one pissed me off and I can't stand the couple from that book, but this one had a couple that I loved.

    He is a reformed bad boy. Love that trope.

    She is 7 months pregnant when they meet.

    They end up neighbors and he ends up taking her to the hospital when she's in labor. He reacts in a completely reasonable way while he takes her into the emergency room:

    Did you even look at the pregnancy books I gave you? Dumbass!

    Eric and Jean become best friends, and even better is that Eric becomes besties with the baby, Ada. That is fricken adorable!

    Oh, I'm sorry, did your ovaries just explode?

    Mine were already heading for the scrap heap from oldness, so I won't really miss them, but you might have use for yours at some point.

    So, now we get another of my favorite tropes - friends to lovers, and it is sooo sweet and adorable and feel-goody that you may actually feel your ovaries come back to life again after the explosion.

    This was a sweet and fun read. I’m new to the Dive Bar series so those of you that haven’t read any of the other books in the series, like me, this is a complete standalone. Yes characters from previous books make an appearance, but it doesn’t take away from the story of Eric & Jean.

    Eric is a partner in the ownership of the Dive Bar. He’s single and man does he like to mingle. He gets a lot of crap about it from everyone he knows and everyone he doesn’t know. He always has but lately it’s starting to bother him. He’s a sexy man, he’s got a lot going for him, and he’s smart. But he likes the attention, so what. Eric is kind and willing to do anything to help you out. Maybe it’s time for a break from the sex life for a bit, he’s thinking. So when a new single woman comes to town, umm hello, Eric is there to welcome her.

    Jean is moving from Florida to start a new life, escape from the claws and disappointment she’s caused her family. She’s met a friend online that has helped her overcome some things and invited her to move to Nell’s town. Her first stop in town is the Dive Bar, where Nell works, and her first encounter is with the sexy as sin bartender Eric Collins. But she isn’t here for love, she’s starting over with a new life. So when she stands up to greet her friend Nell, Eric gets the first glimpse at her rocking 7 month pregnant belly. So will this deter Eric’s attraction to Jean or will he skip out and get back to mingling?

    This story is about finding love when you at least expect it. It’s finding your happiness, your soul, and it’s a story about being yourself even when everyone else may be against you. It is predictable but I still liked it. The chemistry and sweetness was nice and overall I really enjoyed this book and enjoyed an all male POV 😇

    I think love makes sense when you find the

    one to share your heart with. Before the right one, you experiment. You test the waters, make mistakes, think it's love, decide it couldn't feel like this and decide it's just not worth it. Well, it’s different when you’re really in love. You

    do anything to make it work and it's never too hard. You’re pushing and pulling to get it right. In my case, sometimes he pushes me out of my comfort zone (which

    do anything to make it work and it's never too hard. You’re pushing and pulling to get it right. In my case, sometimes he pushes me out of my comfort zone (which I HATE), and other times I’ll pull from him and take too much. But, in the end, I’ll pull his cord and he’ll push my buttons (OMG, I’m such a dirty bird) but it still comes back to the fact he lights my world and I turn him on...or so he tells me.

    Eric hadn’t met the right woman for him until she walked into his bar. Well, she was right looking (besides the baby in her belly), she was the right personality (besides the baby in her belly) and the right attitude (besides the baby in her belly). Eric found the right woman…who was a wee bit occupied with the baby in her belly.

    I’ve got to say,

    gets blokes.

    was completely seen through Eric’s eyes. Sometimes, it can be hard having to gauge feelings and emotions from a hero. Eric, well, we know that he’s dealing with a lot of emotions but he’s completely manipulating things in his mind to lessen the blows.

    This is how I see Eric and how he feels...

    – "Well, I guess I shouldn't be trusted ever again"

    – "I don’t deserve pity for my loss because it’s my fault"

    – "I’m told I’m not a good bet in a relationship, so I should only offer friendship"

    Eric keeps barriers up because he doesn’t trust himself to be everything that Jean and Ada need.

    Then, he just accepts that he wants Jean and Ada. Fullstop...the end...this is how it's going to be.

    Yep, Kylie Scott really gets blokes.

    Obviously, Eric takes a wee while to come to that conclusion. While he gets there, we are treated to a fabulous story about a recovering manwhore who meets and falls for a young woman who’s pregnant and later becomes a mother to a beautiful baby girl.

    I loved seeing the fun and games of having a newborn from the outside looking in. I could completely sympathise with the sleepless nights, worry about their health and wellbeing and stress over getting it right. There is no way in hell I’d go back and have more of those little hellions who scream blue murder if you DARE to have a shower. I do miss snuggles, cheeky, drooly grins and the beauty of looking down at your baby as they sleep peacefully in your arms. It was fun looking in but I’m happy to only observe.

    I really enjoyed

    . It was funny, sweet and very believable. There is NO WAY a new mother wants to hook-up or start a relationship straight after childbirth. It takes time and a level of trust must be earned before things can move forward. Eric never rushes Jean and I loved him more for it.

    was paced extremely well. The heat doesn’t come until later in the book but it was perfect timing.

    If you’re a

    fan, you are going to love

    . She gets it right on so many fronts. I highly recommend.

    I think this might be the end of Kylie Scott and me. I loved her early books, but the last few I haven't really connected with and I'm starting to feel like I'm picking on her when I don't enjoy a new book.

    First things first, what I liked about this book and why it's a 3 star rating and not lower. Single mother trope, reformed bad boy trope, and the special appearance of Stage Dive. I liked that this book was from Eric's perspective because we got to see his growth, but I wish we had dual POV because Jean fell so flat as a character.

    I didn't feel the connection between Jean and Eric, I felt more of a connection or bond that he had with her daughter. I really enjoyed his interactions with the baby. Nell ragging on him the whole book got on my nerves, but even more so when she suddenly changed her mind and was all Team Eric.

    Also a pet peeve thing that probably doesn't bother other people but bugs the shit out of me, the author is writing American character but through this whole series has them referring to things with Australian or British terms. It takes me out of the book because people who grew up in the USA wouldn't say these terms unless raised with a strong British background. But, it's probably just me who is annoyed by that.

    Anyways, this book was a great escape from reality, I think lots of readers will love it but it didn't really rock my world.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOPE. I am fully aware of how much reality I leave at the doorstep when I read smut (I mean, I

    been waiting for a sex-werewolf to show up at my door for like 15 years, but since it still hasn’t happened I’m starting to lose hope), but I just want to smack the already-pregnant-with-no-baby-daddy-in-the-picture broad who decides to start a new relationship. Not to mention the leading male in this third selection was introduced in the earlier books and simply put . . . .

    And one with a whole lotta baggage I did not find smexy whatsoever to boot.

    As for #3 – I read this one like a month ago so I don't remember all the deets, but I do know Kylie Scott writes the good sexuals so no complaints there. That’s why I’ll be first in line for whatever she releases next : )
