Playing Chase by Julie Prestsater ~ Blog Tour and Giveaway



An Against The Wall novella ...

There are many words that have been used to describe Chase Marino: cheater, backstabber, dirt bag, heart breaker. He earned those titles cheating on his high school love Shelly and his co-worker Summer. He broke both their hearts and knows it’s his lot in life to make it up to them somehow. But while the ladies intend to make his life miserable, Chase is pretty good at doing it to himself. With his dad around treating him like a frat brother rather than a son, it’s easy for Chase to beat himself up over the shameful mistakes he made in the past.

That is until Tiffany Gutierrez, the new student teacher arrives. Feeling an immediate attraction to the young beauty Chase does everything in his power to fight it and do the right thing for once. But when Tiffany shows the attraction is mutual all bets are off. Chase soon realizes that while he’s teaching Tiffany how to be a good teacher, he’s learning a thing or two from her as well. Maybe it’s time to move on and let go of the past and realize that he may just deserve a real shot at love.


When I got this tour invite I had yet to read one of Julie's books, but the synopsis caught my eye, "There are many words that have been used to describe Chase Marino: cheater, backstabber, dirt bag, heart breaker" I was sold, hook, line and sinker! Once I got to reading I hated Chase in the other books but I loved this novella!!! I enjoyed the changes and growth that Chase made throughout the made me love Chase! 4 stars

Playing Chase is of course Chase's story.  Chase was pretty much the biggest jerk ever in the other books....the cheater, the heartbreaker, the character you love to hate. Then he meets Tiffany Guiterrez, his new student teacher.  Tiffany fights her immediate attraction to Chase and avoids him as much as she possibly can, because she knows Chase's history.  There is no denying the attraction and chemistry this pair have.  As Chase and Tiffany grow closer together, Tiffany makes Chase rethink everything and take a closer look at how he has treated the woman from his past. He knows what he has done in the past is wrong, but Chase really is just misunderstood.  Can Tiffany get the sexy bad boy to change his ways? Read on to find out! 

Playing Chase is the fourth book in the series and I definitely recommend you read them all.  This series is passionate, fun, emotional, and I loved seeing the growth of characters throughout the series.  A must read!
