BECKIE BOOKWORMS REVIEW
I really loved Chased by Clarissa Wild.
From the moment I picked this up, I was invested.
Chased is basically Syrena and Chase’s story and tells events after Chase purchases Syrena from an illegal sale.
I’m going to try and keep this short and sweet.
So I do love me a twisted deviant hero and with Chase, we have this in spades.
Chase may be all sorts of wrong but he is also all sorts of right for Syrena.
I wasn’t quite sure initially exactly what he was hoping to accomplish with Syrena but as things progressed further along it quickly became apparent.
Chase lives by his own agenda of rules and because of these, he was swiftly falling into a black hole.
Syrena for him was a test to see how far down this rabbit hole he had fallen.
Syrena herself was much harder to get a handle on, but I believe she was just the right side of feisty.
Too much and maybe there would have been more of a power struggle between these two.
I think the balance was just right here.
And with Chase ultimately looking for innocent and vulnerable, well whats more so than a blind girl.
I also think Chase was initially surprised at how independent Syrena actually was, she wasn’t quite the shrinking violet he was ultimately expecting.
I also loved how there was a deeper story running underneath, a river flowing that we gradually became more aware of as events unfolded.
This for me delivered one hundred percent.
My only slight gripe would be that I was not completely convinced about syrena being blind and able to hold down a waitressing and cleaning job.
It doesn’t seem likely in my opinion.
But that’s just my opinion and I could be wrong.
So Chased delivered on all fronts for me and I found it to be an engrossing actioned packed read that I enjoyed immensely.
And I have no problem recommending this to others.
I hope you give Chased a go and enjoy it as much as me.
one final thing, From other reviews I’ve gathered this is part of an ongoing series.
I read this as a standalone and had no issues at all following along.
I was provided with an ARC of “Chased” By the author of which I have reviewed voluntary.
All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
