Reviewed at Shifter HavenIn Chasing Trouble, the second story in the City Shifters, The Pride series we have Benedict and Eloise s romance and talk about opposites attract Benedict comes from a very wealthy, prominent lion shifter family, he s the lawyer for both the Pride and the family Eloise is a former foster kid, street kid who has always been on just this side of the law never anything huge but trouble nonetheless When Benedict is bailing out his brother at the local jail he sees how Eloise is being treated by the police and make a split second decision to represent her It doesn t really take him long to know why he stepped in, his lion made it pretty clear that Eloise is their mate but she certainly is trouble with a capital T In short order Eloise will steal his heart, his wallet and his clothes and bring him and his pride into some serious undertakings that will have long reaching effects.On some level, Eloise knows she s been used and now set up to take the fall While she s having trouble believing that this is happening, she still has to make it right, and this sexy lawyer just might hold the key to getting out of this alive But she s spent too many years on her own to trust anyone else, her friends can only help so much Can she really bring this world of danger that she s in to Benedict s door His family already wants him far away from her and rightly so But he s convinced that they belong together and for the first time in her life, she wants to believe in that possibility so badly.Chasing Trouble packs a serious punch with believable situations and realistic characters yes, I know this is supernatural, but within that world, I can easily relate to what is happening Eloise would easily be considered a myth, even in this world, and her powers and abilities have only begun to be tapped If she can get control, she will be a formidable ally and feared enemy Benedict and Eloise gave me many chuckle worthy moments, some serious sizzle and an enjoyable opposites attract couple that make perfect sense together You d think they don t fit, but in reality they fill the gaps in each other and make a complete unit when together.The world building continues to add depth to the series The secondary characters are being fleshed out into people who will one day tell their own stories, but in the meantime they are becoming a strong, tightly knit group Enemies are not always what they seem on the surface, and even when in doubt about motive some things are in the grey area and we ll see how they turn out in later books, I m sure I really enjoyed this visit to Layla Nash s world It s a fast paced, sexy, action filled story with layers upon layers to discover along the way Never trust that you know everything until the final page is turned. Great seriesI thought I loved Logan in book 1, but Benedict my my my This is the first shifter romance where the heroine was not human but not like other shifters either, which made the story that much exciting. Book review Chasing TroubleI am an independent reviewer This book is the 2nd in the City Sifters The Pride series and ends in an HEA Benedict, the clown of the Chase pride, discovers Eloise as she is being arrested He realizes she is his mate and tries to befriend her Eloise not only pickpockets Benedict s wallet, but steals a second wallet and all of his clothes Eloise is a gorgon medusa She can turn people into stone with just a look Her hair has a life of its own and is described as something between a cat s tail and a snake Benedict goes to bat for Eloise with all different types of shifter, especially hyena and bear I felt Benedict s heartbreak when he realized why Eloise slept with him the first time This book had all of the feels romantic, suspenseful and humorous Logan and Natalia are in this book, but Logan really comes across as rude The book is appropriate for an adult audience I am giving the book 5 stars This series is very good. Another good story I really like this authors writing view spoiler What I didn t like in this story was Logan, and that was sad he came across sounding like a prize asshole, which he didn t in his own book One of the things I loved about the first one was that the family fought to get them together as much as the main characters did, that was sadly not the case in this book Benedict stood by Logan in his fight for Natalia, and yet even after everything is said and done Logan could not be bothered to even try and welcome Eloise into the family nicely hide spoiler InterestingAn interesting story associating people with animals and mythical beings in a way that keeps one on the edge every step of the way Wow a gorgon love story Eloise is an awesome heroine and Benedict is just such a sweetie Really good read with a pretty unique story. |Free ♬ Chasing Trouble (City Shifters: the Pride, #2) ♂ Eloise Deacon Has A Deadline Deliver A Hyena Princess And Ten Grand In Ransom Money In Less Than Two Days, Or Eloise Will Pay With Her Life The Only Problem Is, She Can T Find The Princess And Barely Has Two Nickels To Rub Together She Ll Need Than Her Mother S Medusa Powers To Stay Alive Until Handsome Benedict Chase Walks Into Her Life Benedict Chase Spends Most Of His Time Chasing Trouble For His Brothers The Girl With The Silver Eyes Is Clearly Her Own Kind Of Trouble, But He S Powerless To Resist When His Lion Claims Her So What If Her Hair Literally Has A Mind Of Its Own And Most Of The Shifters In The City Are After Her She S Exactly Who He S Been Looking For, As Long As She Doesn T Paralyze Him By Mistake But Saving Eloise From The Trouble She S In Means Risking A War With The Hyenas, And It Could Drag Every Other Shifter In The City Into An Interspecies Civil War Benedict Knows She S Worth It, But His Brothers Aren T So Sure Will He Go Against The Pride To Save Her, Risking Everything The Chase Brothers Have Built Unusual heroine I really enjoyed this story. RabidReads.com After reading book one, Thrill of the Chase, I knew I wanted to continue on with this series If I thought the first one was good, I really thought this one was even better Lion shifters Bring them on The first book introduced the reader to a family of lion shifters, the Chase brothers They are rich, powerful, and none of them were mated until Logan, the leader of their pride, found his mate, Natalia This time around, Benedict, the lawyer, finds his mate in the most unlikely place While bailing out his brother, Atticus, he meets Eloise, when she is brought in to the police station He is immediately drawn to her, and decides to defend her, regardless of the charges Eloise, a former foster and street kid, makes her way doing things that are dubious in nature She has a rap sheet, but nothing particularly dangerous It s just the way she has learned to survive And the thing is, Eloise isn t exactly human And what she is supernaturally, is a creature that although I have heard of it Greek mythology , I have never seen it used as a character I am not letting on what she is, as you have to read awhile to figure it out I found it to be very unique, although when I googled it, it seems Marvel comics uses it as a character, as well.Eloise has got herself into quite the pickle this time She was hired to deliver money to ransom the queen of the hyenas s daughter, and when she went back, the money was gone and her friend Lacey the daughter was not returned Now the queen has given her only a short period of time to come up with her missing 10,000 and Lacey unharmed or else Now that Benedict is in the picture, Eloise is hoping the pride or her wolf friends will help her She s pretty desperate and makes the mistake of thinking Benedict only wants her for sex in exchange for the help money She ended up being an extremely complex character, inherently good, but left in horrible circumstances and living the only way she can, especially with her affliction As far as Benedict is concerned, he is just immediately smitten with her, and the mate thing just kind of happens no aha moment to speak of, it just is.What follows was not only a good, yet complex, romance, but also ended up being suspenseful and full of mystery as Eloise and Benedict race against the clock to figure out who took the money and where Lacey is being held Time could be up for both Lacey and Eloise because you don t want to cross the queen of the hyena s Couple all of this with what creature Eloise is and all the baggage that comes with it, and this book ended up being a page turner at times for me I really like these lion shifter brothers and I recommend it to adult due to sensual scenes readers of paranormal romance. Benedict Chase spends most of his time chasing trouble for his brothers but now he s chasing his own kind of trouble as his lion has claimed a silver eyed girl he s powerless to resist in this thrilling paranormal romance.Eloise has to find the hyena princess and ten grand in ransom money in less than two days so she ll need than her mother s medusa powers to stay alive and the reader can t help but get caught up in all the exhilarating trouble that follows as the chase begins Like the first book in the series, the plot is well written, fast paced, smooth flowing and full of suspense, excitement and romance with strong captivating characters that draw readers into the story Lots of sizzling chemistry heats up the pages between Benedict and Eloise but the relationship is quite troublesome considering Eloise is a gorgon with some pretty nifty abilities and with the fix that Eloise has found herself in there is plenty of adrenaline pumping excitement happening throughout this story, so there s never a dull moment.The author certainly caught me by surprise with this story, as a lion shifter and a gorgon make for one hot and unique couple and their story had quite a few surprises along the way, so I was glued to the pages and I can t wait to read the next book in this series.4 STARS
