Review of The Chase, Volume 1 by Jessica Wood

The Chase, Volume 1
by Jessica Wood


735 to 1.

735 = number of notches on his belt.
1 = the notch he couldn’t get.

Who is he?

Dean Chase.

He loves the thrill. He loves the women. And above all, he loves the chase.

But the one thing he doesn’t love is being tied down by a woman. To him, once the chase is over, it’s time to pull up his boxers and move on to the next target.

That is until he meets Blair Parker.

Blair is unlike any of the women under Dean’s belt. She’s confident, mysterious, and sassy. In Dean’s world, she’s the wicked curved ball he couldn’t figure out. She’s the first woman who always seems to be out of reach no matter how hard he chases. So when it comes to Blair, Dean couldn’t move on.

Dean will need to change his ways in order to chase Blair down to make her the 736th notch on his belt. But will chasing after Blair become Dean’s undoing and end his love of the chase once and for all?

The Chase is volume one of a three-part contemporary romance novella series.

The Chase Volume Two will be out on June 2014.


I  love Jessica Wood's books.  She makes feel good when I read her books and smile.  I love her writing style and her characters.

Having said that... I hate Dean Chase.  He is the player of women, master of the one-night-stand (with 735 notches on his bedpost), and cocky is not enough to describe his hubris.  He feels entitled to approach a woman, WHO HAS NOT ENTICED HIM, and proceed to make his rude pitch to take her to bed right that minute.  Who does he think he is?  Oh, yeah, I have to remember he is a fictional character!  I hope he is not based on a real character... I also hope I never meet this character or a punch in the face will not be enough.

This is the first installment of this series.  All I can hope is he gets his just deserves!  I hope Blair makes him suffer and somehow, he will develop some degree of maturity and a heart.  Come on, Jessica!  Make this guy re-invent himself so he no longer is the man you hate to love!

Jessica Wood writes contemporary romance.

While she has lived in countless cities throughout the U.S., her heart belongs to San Francisco. To her, there’s something seductively romantic about the Golden Gate Bridge, the steep rolling hills of the city streets, the cable cars, and the Victorian-style architecture.

She loves a strong, masculine man with a witty personality. While she is headstrong and extremely independent, she can’t resist a man who takes control of the relationship, both outside and inside of the bedroom.

She loves to travel internationally, and tries to plan a yearly trip abroad. She also loves to cook and bake, and—to the benefit of her friends—she loves to share. She also enjoys ceramics and being creative with her hands. She has a weakness for good (maybe bad) TV shows; she’s up-to-date on over 25 current shows, and no, that wasn’t a joke.

And it goes without saying, she loves books—they’re like old and dear friends who have always been there to make her laugh and make her cr

The one thing she wished she had more of is time.
