Fall in love with this fun and irresistibly naughty game of cat and mouse.
I was gifted this book and In return I am writing an honest review. Tag Chaser was not the book I expected it to be. I read the synopsis and judged it by its cover as a straight up gushy romance novel. But it think it was so much more. Paisley is a successful advertising agent and she pretty much keeps to herself, except for her best girlfriend. Paisley has a secret though, a past that she doesn’t like to talk about, and she is very troubled by this. But when she meets Corbin, she finds herself letting down the walls she has built up around her heart. Not at first though, she ran from him a few times, but Corbin wasn’t having it. He pursued her until she gave into him. From the start there was a mystery to the both of them and this intrigued me very much. I am a sucker for a good plot and mystery, and I feel I got both with this book. Paisley struggles with her trust issues and the idea that Corbin could be leaving her soon for deployment overseas, prevents her from fully giving into him. Corbin is irresistible and he just wants to spend as much time with Paisley as possible, all the while he is keeping something from her, so what is he hiding? And what is so terrible from Paisley’s past that she can’t move on and just let down her guard with men? This book was a rollercoaster of emotions, twist and turns. I really liked this book and how well it was written, I cannot criticize any grammar errors, but who am I to correct grammar? My only complaint I would say is that we didn’t have more time to enjoy Paisley and Corbin as a couple in Love. I will not elaborate, as I do not want to put any spoilers out there. But I am looking forward to reading Kandi’s next book and will recommend this book to my friends. I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.

Kandi started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic (like most girls brought up on Disney movies).
When Kandi isn’t working or writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys beach days, movie marathons, live music, craft beer and sweet wine – not necessarily in that order.
