KA Tucker sure knows how to write them. I loved this book. Her characters in this series are realistic. No one is completely white or black. Grey everywhere.
The book begins with our heroine Amber Welles arriving to Dublin and sightseeing. But, instead of joining her tour guide at the park she is almost killed when a bomb goes of. Thankfully, she's saved by an Irish hottie. Her savior doesn't stay. Nonetheless, she is able to track him down.
River Delaney's life has been nothing but trouble since his brother Aengus started hanging out with the wrong people. He is continuously putting their family in danger and recently an innocent american girl almost lost her life this time. When said american girl shows up at his bar, it's hard for him to stay away from her. He knows she is only here for a few days but it seems impossible to let her go.
If only he can make her stay....
I thought Chasing River was a great addition to the series.
Amber is a straight arrow kind of girl. She knows what's right and what's wrong. She is very much her father's daughter. I can feel her conflict towards being with someone who hadn't walked the same path as she has. Someone who's not squeaky clean as she is.
There was no way I wouldn't fall for River. He had a great heart, he loved his family, he never played games with Amber. When it counted he was truthful and he wouldn't let Amber get hurt. All positives in my book. His dilemma was even worse than Amber's. How to protect your own blood or how to let him go? How far and how bad do you let things go?
In regards to the secondary characters, Sheriff Gabe Wells is still a favorite. I was surprised how much I love River's brother Rowen and Ivy. I hope we will see both characters again.
