Product Description

Lara Hunter’s life is finally headed in the right direction. With a good education, a great new job, and her dear best friend, Kade, by her side, nothing can get in her way until a freak rain storm leaves her sprawled across the road in the middle of a busy intersection during rush hour traffic.

Reed Prescott rakes in millions on business deals every day. He’s driven and hard-edged and his life is quite complicated enough before a silly little girl in outrageous high heels bites it in front of his moving vehicle. With no other choices, he forces her out of the pouring rain and inside his car. His concern isn’t necessarily with her safety, but to ward off any potential lawsuit.

While Lara’s not entirely sure she appreciates Reed’s high-handed helpfulness, Reed’s whole world is rocked by the honesty and genuineness of the captivating beauty underneath that soggy exterior. Reed’s success in business has always been fueled by hate for his dysfunctional birth family, so when the potential for love stands in front of him, can this hardened man find a way to chase after happy?

Anger and calculating meets his match in gentleness and perseverance
Lara Hunter’s life is finally headed in the right direction.

It was hard to connect with Reed when he first met Lara. Of all billionaire/millionaire (aka rich) men I've 'met', none were as curt or as gruff as he was after having almost run over Lara with his car; on hindsight, Lara was wearing some really nice sky high shoes and the roads were really slippery. Compared to the beginning where we meet the boy who was Reed to the man Reed, we see two different aspects of who he could have been vs who he became. However, there is room for improvement and considering this is a first time author, I must admit that even though I often had trouble connecting with the characters, the sexual spice existing between the two can't be denied. I must admit, I hope to see more realistic connections and situations between characters, but Rylie Roberts has managed to create a story that can distract readers from their stressful lives.

This is a really super debut novel. I literally inhaled this story.

Lara's life is good. She's very excited to start her new job as a PR in a great company. However in the way to work on her first day she ends up in front of a car.

Reed the driver of the car is an arrogant millionaire. All he thinks about when he sees Lara in front of his car is a lawsuit so he does all he can to help her. There's chemistry between them but they don't act on it... Yet.

I loved the slow build up of the story. I was rooting for these two to be happy.

Well done to the author on a brilliant debut novel. I loved the storyline & the secondary characters were great too.

Looking forward to reading more from this author.

Good story - nice build up to relationship. I liked that Lara had a great relationship with her childhood friend Kade. It was perfect that Reed made sure he and Kade were friendly to make Lara happy.

Need a story about Kade now.

I would give this book 10 stars if I could and to think it's Rylie's first book! I absolutely love this book and I hope, wish, and beg the author to write a novella or sequel for Lara and Reed as well as many more books. You will root for Reed and Lara and their tragic childhoods will pull at your heart but it is a pleasure to read their journey to find love, watch them overcome their flaws and transform their lives, esp Reed. Rylie is a very skilled writer and great story teller. This story is sweet and compelling. I couldn't put it down and let me tell you, Rylie is the Queen of steamy sex scenes. I'm not talking just writing about sex, this writer can write and the steamy scenes are probably the hottest I've ever read. Most unexpected is the humour in her stories where you least expect. I will definitely read this book again. I've purchased the next book, Acting Happy and I will wait patiently for more, please write lots more ' This is one of my top five reads and reads this summer, and Rylie quickly became one of my top 5 fav authors!

Rylie Roberts has written the best first book I have read by a first time Author. Chasing Happy is truly that in reading this story. Lara finely has her first job and it is a dream. Reed is an arrogant, focused, demon driven, wealthy business man. They both have horrid past that influences the idea of ever finding Happy. Lara has Kade, her protector and roommate. Reed has four best friends with whom he grew up. Their lives collide on a rainy morning in Dallas and then the Chasing begins. The painful revelations of each of their past is heartbreaking. The struggles to understand each other and how to be in a relationship are wonderfully written.
Rylie Roberts’s storytelling voice is great to read. I was given this book. I very much enjoy this story. I look forward to more stories from Rylie Roberts. I am so glad I got to read this book, I think you will be too. Give a new author a try; it will be well worth your time.

Thanks Rylie Roberts & Good Writing

This book was okay, but the plot left a lot to be desired. It was like there was the bare minimum of story to just move it along. There was a lot of potential there but it just never developed into anything of substance. Reed's motives behind his drive to succeed in business and the entire idea of getting revenge with his estranged grandfather were never fully explored or explained in any way that justified it being part of the story at all. In fact all of the business related plot was thin and unrealistic and never fully developed. It really just felt that it was there to fill in between sex scenes, which were only medium heat.
