This one takes a spoiled and dissolute rich kid (Brian Paulson) and throws him for a ride with a nasty little bequest that his grandfather cooked up for him, one which has no rationale on the surface but rather an intricate and smoothly conceived plotline for Brian to pursue--if he wants to.
Quite by accident and totally out of his rich boy character he performs a Samaritan deed that brings him into contact with Cade MacAllister (rear on the cover), whom he manages to meet again as the waiter serving him and his blotto friends in a posh restaurant. From there their lives become intertwined through Brian's grandfather's plot, and we are on a journey that takes Brian a long time to figure out. This is one of the interesting aspects of Grey's character development, i.e., for as rich and smart as he may be, Brian has no clue how the rest of the world handles life or the kinds of circumstances he now finds himself experiencing.
Brian and Cade fall "in like," but there is so much more for them to explore about each other and each other's families before they allow themselves to bring their friendship to another level. Making this all the easier for us to absorb and accept is Cade's challenged older brother Phillip, who is really the catalyst of love and devotion that the plotline promised. Nice sweet ride once again by a master.
Cade is a poor man who is working two jobs to support his mother and special needs brother. Being mugged for what little money he has is a disaster for Cade but he was fortunate enough to have been saved by Brian, who was passing by and didn’t like seeing anyone taken advantage of like that. When Brian comes to him for help Cade offers what he can, space to sleep and simple food to eat while Brian gets his feet under him.
What neither Cade nor Brian expect is that Cade will have to tutor Brian in how to find a job, get along with very little, and dispense with having opportunities handed to him easily. Even a trip to Goodwill to find clothes is humbling but also freeing for Brian.
As Brian works through a game he doesn’t even know the rules for, he reaches blindly for goals that will take him to the next level and perhaps return to him some of what he lost. Unexpectedly, Brian gathers knowledge and friends along the way and becomes a better man for it. He also falls in love, which is the sweet romance of the story.
I was completely taken in by Chasing the Dream, its somewhat mysterious plot and its heart-of-gold characters. This riches to rags and back again story is amazing and fun to read. The reader is also confused by the twists and turns of the story, which is part of the thrill of reading it. A great Andrew Grey story!
Cade is a man that Brian saved in the park from a pick pocket. It turns out when the chips are down he is the only real friend Brian has. He is a hard working waiter. Lives in a one room apartment but lets Brian stay on his couch. He teaches him lesson that money cannot buy.
I loved the character of Cade. He is heroic but not super alpha. He tries to be everything to everyone. Just a really good person. The way he is with his brother shows what a great heart Cade has.
Speaking of Cade's brother. I loved how Mr. Grey handled that situation. I liked the realism, and the grace with which this character was written. Shows that the author did take the time to actually research or get to know the subject matter before writing it. I loved that.
This is a really great story, I loved how Brian grew from a self centered but lost soul to a real man who knows the value of things, and a great friendship. Really Brian did come a long ways, and I am glad I got to go on the journey with him.
