Chase Walker used to be a good kid—charming, athletic, and with a bright future ahead, but that was before travesty struck his life, sinking him into deep despair. Caught up in a world of drugs and alcohol, he doesn’t notice time slipping away until he’s arrested for underage drinking one night.
Fed up with watching her son destroy his life, Chase’s mom relocates him to live in a small ranching community with his ex-military grandfather. Chase is far from happy about the situation until he meets, Nikki, the cute cheerleader who won’t give football players like him the time of day.
Chase enjoys a good challenge though and sets out to claim Nikki for his own. He soon discovers she’s more than a pretty face—she’s a balm to his troubled spirit also. But when tragedy strikes Nikki’s life too, suddenly Chase finds himself put to the ultimate test. Can he trust Nikki, and all that she’s taught him? Will it be enough?
I have to say that when I first started the book I was a little hesitant. I thought because it was based around teenagers that I would not like it considering I'm 34 yrs old.. Oh, I was SO WRONG!! Chasing Nikki definitely pulls at the strings to your heart. Chase didn't know how to cope with the loss of his father, so he turned to alcohol and drugs to help cope with the pain... Then one day, he sees a beautiful girl named, Nikki and he vowed that he was going to get this girl to go on a date with him. Chase has the reputation of a punk and Nikki is the good girl, so he definitely had his work cut out for him. Little did Chase know that Nikki would change his life forever by just saying one simple word, YES!!! This book will have you laughing one minute and crying the next. I was very glad that I chose to read this book, and I give it 5 stars !!!
