Be careful who you chase... From the moment we meet, I'm a goner. Her slender fingers slip into mine and hot damn. Sydney Frost is all-natural with an alluring chilly demeanor. A challenge. I'm in lust and in too deep by the time I discover the truth. She's an undercover agent with the FBI, and I'm her prime suspect. She's an undercover agent with a simple task: get close to the suspect. My job is simple. Go in, find the information the FBI needs, and get out before my cover is blown. I never counted on one very important thing, though. Him. Chase Maitlin is not my type. He’s cocky and overly confident. Too bad he’s also smart, funny, and ridiculously sexy. Can a romance built on lies ever lead to happily ever after? Chase and Sadie are about to find out… Chasing Frost, the fifth book in the West Side series, is a steamy, enemies-to-lovers, sometimes funny, sometimes suspenseful, contemporary romance featuring a smart, dedicated heroine and the sexy bad boy who steals her heart. The standalone series of contemporary romance novels can be read in any order.
This an FBI thriller/suspense story. Whilst I quite liked the storyline I was not so enthused by the characters and their descriptions. I thought that Chase came out as a better described character than Sophie. But overall, neither character came across sharply. My overall impression of the writing was that it was rather ‘doughy’ in style – sticky and and bit soft. needed to be sharpened up.
