I am so in love with this book! I need my very own River Delaney! Check out my review for Chasing River, and full series buy links.
Armed with two years’ worth of savings and the need to experience life outside the bubble of her Oregon small town, twenty-five-year old Amber Welles is prepared for anything. Except dying in Dublin. Had it not been for the bravery of a stranger, she might have. But he takes off before she has the chance to offer her gratitude.
Twenty-four-year-old River Delaney is rattled. No one was supposed to get hurt. But then that American tourist showed up. He couldn’t let her die, but he also couldn’t risk being identified at the scene—so, he ran. Back to his everyday life of running his family’s pub. Only, everyday life is getting more and more complicated, thanks to his brother, Aengus, and his criminal associations. When the American girl tracks River down, he quickly realizes how much he likes her, how wrong she is for him. And how dangerous it is to have her around. Chasing her off would be the smart move.
Maybe it’s because he saved her life, or maybe it’s because he’s completely different from everything she’s left behind, but Amber finds herself chasing after River Delaney. Amber isn’t the kind of girl to chase after anyone.
And River isn’t the kind of guy she’d want to catch.
I absolutely loved this book! Loved, loved, loved it!!! I could not put it down, and I was left with the biggest grin and the fullest heart.
I loved all the characters, and I completely fell for River! There’s just something about a gorgeous, Irish guy, even if he’s fictional! He’s loyal to the death and would do anything for the people he loves, even if it caused himself trouble.
The storyline was fantastic! I loved learning about Ireland through Amber’s research and River’s stories. I really had no clue where this book was going; would it end in disaster, or a HEA? Would there be heartbreak along the way?
It didn’t take me long to find out because I absolutely devoured this book!! I loved how Amber and River met, how their lives literally collided, and the friendship that resulted. These two were perfect for each other, even though their lives couldn’t be further apart.
Chasing River gets a big 5 stars from me, as one of my favourite KA books to date!
