The second in the Highland Games series, following Long Shot.
Gleann, New Hampshire’s annual highland games always deliver the best of Scottish culture—rowdiness, rugby, whiskey, and unexpected romance…
Even though Shea Montgomery’s swanky bar and distinguished palate have made her a highly regarded whiskey connoisseur, she’s happiest bringing her favorite spirit to various highland games around New England. Her demanding ex made her wary of men obsessed with money and status, and she’s now more comfortable in the country than in the city. Still, when a gorgeous rugby player straight from Wall Street barrels into her whiskey tent, she’s tempted to change her mind…
J.P. Byrne went from poor beginnings to international high roller by using his charisma and wit, and holding fast to his dreams. A strong, independent woman like Shea is exactly what he’s looking for, only he has no idea how to prove he’s more than his three-piece suits—especially when he’s spent years doing just the opposite.
But as Shea and Byrne battle old demons, they discover together that the best remedy for past pain is a good, stiff shot of present pleasure…
I didn’t read the first book in the Highland Games series by Hanna Martine, but that didn’t keep me from appreciating the brilliance of The Good Chase. I loved how Shea and J.P. each had pasts to overcome, but they were both adults and didn’t really let that stand in their way. I was also happy that this book has an original twist–it’s J.P. who’s trying to prove himself to Shea, and I loved it. The Good Chase had somewhat of a slow burn going, but when they got together, bam! It was electric.
I’m looking forward to more books from Martine. If you love sexy rugby players who are more than meets the eye and sassy heroines who don’t need a hero to rescue them, then check out The Good Chase by Hanna Martine. You’ll be glad you did!
