I enjoyed Long Shot, the first book in Hanna Martine’s Highland Games series, so I assumed I would like the second in the series, The Good Chase. I am so happy to say that I was wrong–I loved this book, and stayed up far too late reading it. Byrne and Shea met in Long Shot, when Byrne’s rugby team came to play in the Highland Games tournament where Shea Montgomery was offering tastings of her specialty, whisky. She shot him down, but they keep running in to each other at various Scottish festivals and back home in Manhattan. I loved the slow build of their relationship. Byrne and Shea are both smart, sexy, fun, complex characters, with unexpected facets that I loved discovering, as the story unfolded. They are two hard-working, honest, ethical people with big dreams and plans. I loved the way these two worked through the issues and obstacles that inevitably popped up, without unnecessary drama. Both are in their 30’s, and were mature and thoughtful in their relationship. This doesn’t mean they didn’t have their issues, arguments or problems–they did, but the way they worked to resolve them was believable and true to character. I loved Shea’s passion for whisky; the backdrop of the whiskey industry was so interesting to me, and such a refreshing change. Byrne’s is a very emotional story, but told in such a way as to not feel overly sentimental or emotionally manipulative; its just a great story that really drew me in and touched my heart. Ms. Martine was really able to impart the deeply felt emotions, of all kinds, of her characters. I rarely cry over books, but I found myself getting a little weepy over this one.

Hanna Martine does a great job with the second book in the Highland Games series, The Good Chase. Martine brings whiskey and rugby to the forefront in this contemporary romance about two people who have overcome a lot to get to where they are. Martine uses a bit of a Highland theme to get the ball rolling with this one and reader's who love all things Scottish will find this one irresistible. Martine's use of the whiskey industry in the story was ingenious and makes for a really interesting read.

What I liked:

I haven't read the first book in this series, Long Shot, but I was really intrigued with The Good Chase. Being of Scottish decent probably had something to do with that. I love stories that portray aspects of the Scottish people and homeland. The Highland Games is something synonymous with the Scotland and I was interested to see how Martine handled it. Usually, the any Highland Games held in America is similar but not exactly like the real thing. I thought Martine had her facts straight and she made the games seem like a place any reader would want to visit. As well as Shea's whiskey tasting tent.

Shea's profession was certainly not what I expected. I loved it though. The background on the whiskey industry was interesting and full of unique facts. It added a certain finesse to the story. It cost quite a pretty penny to be able to taste the fine whiskey that Shea was providing and she made it a great experience for those who got the opportunity. I've never seen a whiskey tasting at any Highland Games I have been too, but I think it would make an amazing addition. Scotch whiskey, yummy!

I liked Shea as a character as well. She has started a new life for herself after a marriage to a controlling wealthy man, who didn't see her potential.

Quick & Dirty: A riveting and often funny love story that caught me completely by surprise. Romance lovers will definitely not be disappointed!

Opening Sentence: I need a hot guy in a kilt.

The Review:

Shea Montgomery has a dream of owning her own whisky distillery someday. She’s even picked out the perfect location. For now though, she’ll settle for running a very popular whisky bar in New York, one that gets hired for a lot of Highland Games events. At one such event, she runs into Byrne, a rugby player who does his very best to charm her. It works, but Shea has very strict rules about mixing business and pleasure, not to mention the fact that she is very wary of wealthy men, and Byrne is incredibly wealthy. As he keeps popping into her life though, her resistance starts to wear down. She finds herself more and more drawn to him and can’t help but wonder if maybe she should throw her rules out the window for once. Will Shea find the courage to take a risk on Byrne?

I’d been putting off reading this book because plain old contemporary romance (without any suspense and/or paranormal elements) really doesn’t do anything for me. Boy, was I surprised when I was hooked on this book by the time the first chapter was done! The characters are wonderful and easy to connect to, and the story moves at a very good pace, but not one that makes it feel like things are moving too fast on the romance front. Granted, Shea and Byrne are talking about sleeping together by the time the book reaches the 20 percent mark, but for some reason, it really didn’t feel rushed in this case. The chemistry between the two is so strong that you’re just itching for the two of them to get together already.
