"This was a solid start from a debut writer. It touched on some deeper, darker topics than I expected, and it captivated me enough that I am looking forward to more in this series." ~ BJs Book Blog
"Captivating...Addicting...Masterful debut novel by Rylie Roberts. Rylie brings her characters to life and made me fall in love with Reed and Lara on every page. Sexy...Lustful....Passionate between the steamy scenes and meaningful topics Chasing Happy makes for an all around amazing read." ~ Swoon Worthy Books

"I can tell that this is going to be a great series. I loved this book and the characters in it. This is Rylie's first book and I think that they will just get better and better." ~Wicked Babes Blog

5 happy stars to Chasing Happy and to Rylie Roberts. For a debut novel she has done an excellent job! And I really can't wait to see what else she puts out.
Lara Hunter has finally got a great job that is hopefully going to help her get ahead in life. She has worked really hard to get her education and not fall into the same lifestyle her dad is in. And with her best friend Kade by her side protecting her.
Reed Prescott has built his empire up just to take down his grandfather any way possible. He has built walls to keep people out. He goes for the bimbos that know how to do one night stands because he doesn't want anyone to close. After he was taken away from his addict of a mom he was adopted by his best friends parents but he still doesn't think he's worth much.
Then a freak accident puts them together, Reed wants Lara like no other woman he's meet before but Lara doesn't see that. And when he starts getting to know Lara he thinks he may want something more but he's afraid that she will leave as soon as she knows his past and he feels he's not good enough for her. She's afraid that he will leave or hurt her just like everyone else in her life besides Kade. Can they work through their insecurities and find happiness or will they destroy all possibilities of happiness? Find out by reading this book. I definitely recommend this book. Loved the dynamics of all characters and can't wait to read their stories, I'm really looking forward to seeing what Rylie Roberts can do after this perfect debut!

Gah.

There's nothing new here, or anything truly enjoyable about this book.

I found nothing likable about Reed... he's a jerk who has no idea how to treat anyone kindly... including his own friends and family. Poor Lara doesn't know any better because everyone in her past life has treated her poorly, so she's swayed by fancy clothes (although she protests, she still accepts them). Also, she's supposed to be "smart" but she's naive and not very intuitive. I just didn't get it.

I found this relationship sad, which tainted the erotic parts of it. This wasn't even romantic.

I am amazed at how well this book is written, knowing she is a newer author. I absolutely recommend this book. The characters are incredible.... Can't wait for more books from this author. I will definitely keep her on my TO BUY list and if the rest of her books are as good as this one, she could fast beceome one of my favorite 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

Let me start out by saying I can not believe this girl is a first time author. People, if this is her first book, then I can’t wait to see what is in store for us. Chasing Happy was such a great book! I was absorbed into this storyline immediately upon reading the first chapter.

Chasing Happy is the story of Reed, an arrogant millionaire playboy and Lara, a quiet beauty embarking on her first steps towards the life she has always wanted. Love wasn’t a in the plans for either, but when their paths cross and undeniable chemistry ignites forever changing their minds, lives, and hearts.

Roberts does an absolutely amazing job of developing and writing these characters. Each characters is equally frustrating, yet lovable. Reed drives you absolutely insane with his hatred for his family and the pain they’ve caused due to a terrible childhood. At times, Reed’s anger is almost too much to bear, yet when he looks at Lara his entire demeanor changes and you find yourself falling hard for this gentle giant. Lara is the epitome of beauty, charisma, and class, yet she still views herself as this timid, weakling of a child whose father didn’t love her enough to notice her, take care of her, and want her. Both are still struggling to overcome their pasts and believe they are wanted and worthy of love.

Chasing Happy is truly one of those reads that will pull you in capturing your attention to the very end. If this is Robert’s first book, you need to get aboard her train now because this book was phenomenal. I can only imagine what this author will bring to the table in the near future.

I liked how Reed was captivated by Lara. It was strange for him because he did not spend a lot of time with women. He never had a relationship and work was all he had. Lara changed that for him. She too was never in relationship so this was knew for both of them. This book was funny and had its moments but there really wasn't any angst which I liked. They both had issues growing up but they both wanted to try. Very enjoyable.
