TeriLyn's thoughts: **Chasing Kane generously provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.**
This book continues the journey of Regan Kane and Georgia from Sweet Forty-Two. It's a glimpse into their lives and how they each cope with their passions while being in a committed relationship. Andrea Randall intermixed these two with CJ Kane whom we've previously met in other books. Told from all three of their points of view, the story takes us on tour with Regan and CJ as we see how their lives are continuously changing.
There were clear moments in this book that I really adored. The deep friendships portrayed between all three characters and recurring characters are something I really value in Randall's writing. I always feel that above all friendship and camaraderie are important elements in her stories. Some heavy issues surface between these characters and some of the ways in which those are played out I couldn't get on board with. There were moments of juvenile behavior I wasn't expecting as well as some moments between Georgia and Regan that didn't sit well within the context of the story. However, through those moments the purity of their relationships still shined and I really enjoyed how Randall brought everything full circle for all of them. Randall's writing gives full exposure to all emotions her characters are feeling. There's gut reactions and mistakes made and a lot of searching to be better humans which I find intriguing to read. Her characters humanize themselves in very honest ways that makes more real for the reader.
Chasing Kane can be read as a stand alone but I suggest reading Sweet Forty-Two beforehand as it provides the beautiful foundation for Regan and Georgia's relationship.
