Wild Chase by L.A. Bressett: Blog Tour, Review and Exclusive Deleted Scene

Synopsis

Music is a Moral Law, It Give Soul to the Universe” – Plato
 
Sometimes it doesn’t matter how long you know a person. The effect they can have on you can happen after four seconds or four years.
In Chase Taylor’s case – it’s both.
Avery McGuire doesn’t just flip on a light inside of her – he set a blaze to everything holding her back. After only a week together he has to leave, but he strikes a match before walking away that won’t easily burn out.
Four years later, Chase finds herself face to face with the boy – now rock star – who changed everything. The same one she still can’t admit to falling head over heels in love with. She has no idea that her world is about to get rocked, in more ways than one.

Leary says…

Rock stars, tattoos, and sexy boys. Count me in!! Wild Chase is about a girl, Chase, who is a shining star living under parents that will do anything to dim the light emanating from her. Chase is able to break free from her parents for a night thanks to her amazing best friend, Vic, and finds herself at the age of eighteen in a bar ready to perform and show her true self for the first time ever. The night she shows the real Chase she runs smack dab into the biggest game changer ever, Avery.
Avery and Chase spent a week together falling head over heels in love with each other. Even though the two couldn’t admit to themselves how they felt, you could feel it in your bones as a reader. Chase not being able to admit it because she couldn’t believe you could fall in love with someone in just a week’s time at the age of eighteen.  At the end of the week Avery was off to New York leaving Chase behind but not without leaving her with the sweetest words.
“Chase Taylor, promise me that you’ll break from of this place one day. Don’t be two different people anymore. You don’t need to be anything more than who you are right now. Just promise me that, please?”
Avery gave Chase the courage to reach out and grasp the life she has been dying to live, little did Chase know but she gave back the same courage to Avery. Fast forward four years and we find a MAGNETIC Chase living her life to the fullest. She is the COMPLETE opposite of who she was under the thumb of her parents. When Vic (oh how I love her best friend) desperately needs Chase’s help when another model drops out she begs Chase relentlessly to stand in as a model even though she is the total opposite of normal models, with countless tattoos and purple hair. When Chase begrudgingly agrees to help she doesn’t know that she is about to come face-to-face with her biggest heartache.
I immediately fell in love with not only Vic but Avery’s entire band as well. Each band member has a completely different personality from the other but they are a band of brothers and are extremely close. Yes, I definitely feel head over heels in love with Jesse, Avery’s best friend, in this book. There were times that I really really wanted to throat punch Avery, high five Chase, and donkey punch Olivia. Gross, just thinking her name gives me the heebee jeebees!! Trust me, you’ll feel the same way.
Music is such a huge aspect of this book. When I read a book that references so many songs I always find myself pulling up the song and picturing the scene from the book in my head and thinking about what each of the characters are experiencing through this song. You should really try it, it brings out so many more emotions!!
Even though I had so many feelings of hatred at some of the interactions I still had 100% love for Avery and wanted nothing more then Chase and Avery to get their happily ever after. I did fall completely in love with Jesse in this story, he has such a great heart and was so good to Chase and just so unbelievably YUMMY!! I don’t want to say much more because I don’t want to give away the story but beware, there is a love triangle. It is understandable how it comes about and I definitely fell in love with every person in the triangle.
Do Chase and Avery get their happily ever after?! You NEED to read it to find out!!
I can’t wait for the next book in the series…LOVE the character it is going to be about.
“Yeah, this guy has completely and utterly ruined me for all other men.”

Exclusive Deleted Scene:

 
Avery’s POV-
As I walked down the dimly lit terminal, I signed heavily.
My dad was going to kick my ass- and not just kick it, he was going to murder it and throw it in a dirty dumpster for the rats to take care of.
Can’t say I blame him, it’s not every day you hand a college drop out a multi-million dollar job opportunity and watch him stroll back in the front door and go, “Nah, thanks, but no thanks.”
Yet that was exactly what I was about to do.
Texas was supposed to change my life- and it did- or rather, she did.
Chase Taylor changed everything.
Taking a job with my father’s company was the plan up until those light blue eyes of hers cut through all my bullshit and led me in a completely different direction. The one that had me staying true to the college drop out that I was and following my heart and my dreams into the world of music- no matter if it meant a lousy financial future.
It’s not every day you meet a girl that shakes you to your core the way Chase did for me. Someone so sheltered yet more spirited than anyone I’ve ever known- you don’t find many diamonds in the rough like that, and I wasn’t about to preach self-worth to her and then allow myself to fall blindly into a roll I wasn’t meant to play.
No freaking way.
I just had to find the courage to tell my dad that I was going to find my own way in life one that included staying true to my music, and hope to God that he accepted it.
As I headed towards baggage claim, I noticed my best friend Jesse standing over to the side with a driver’s hat on, tipped awkwardly, and a handwritten sign that read “Corporate Douche Bag.”
I immediately laughed until my ribs hurt.
Even though it killed me to get on that plane and leave the one girl that made me feel things that didn’t seem real, it did feel good to see that jackass.
“Hey FuckFace! Long time no see!” Jesse said loudly, patted me on the back and shoved his sign into my stomach.
I rolled my eyes and grinned.
“Good to see you too, Shithead!”
Jesse looked around in search of something as the bags started to drop down the belt and circle the waiting crowd.
“Where’s Luke?”
I signed and nodded my head back toward the terminal.
“He missed the flight. He was so hung-over that no one could wake him. Should be in tomorrow, bright and early though.”
“That guy would miss his own funeral,” Jesse laughed, grabbed my duffle bag from the belt before I even noticed it.

We headed out and hopped into Jesse’s mom’s old Jeep. Of course it took a few cracks to get it to turn over.

Definitely not the mustang, I thought to myself.
“So when do we get to make fun of you in your suit and tie?” my friend chirped sarcastically as I handed him some cash for parking.
My head hit the headrest and I couldn’t help but smile. I knew he would flip over the news.
“You aren’t,” I said deadpan.
Jesse raised an eyebrow and hit the breaks in the middle of the parking garage.
As he turned to me, his face list up, “What’s that mean?”
“I turned it down, Jess. It wasn’t the right choice for me. And it wasn’t the right choice for Vengeful Honor.”
He ran a hand through this hair and laughed, “You’re serous? You turned it down?”
I nodded again and chuckled as he punched me in the shoulder.
“DUDE! What the hell changed? You were so set on giving it all up and moving on to greener pastures,” Jesse spoke, his eyes still wide with bewilderment.
I shook my head as visions of a blue eyed girl filled my mind.
Cars started honking, but Jesse just gave them the finger as they swerved around us.
“I met the most incredible girl.”
A smug look crossed his face.
“Not like that you dirty bastard. I seriously met the most amazing girl out there- she doesn’t even know it but she changed my mind about taking the job,” I began, unable to stop the smile that appeared.
I guess I paused for too long thinking about Chase, because one of Jesse’s rough slaps to the chest startled me out of it.
“And?” he inquired, pushing for details.
I matched his smug look with one of my own.
“Her name is Chase. Long, curly, brown hair, these killer light blue eyes, with a voice that could rattle the stars.”
Jesse stared at me for a moment before he began to howl with laughter.
“What the hell is so funny about that?” I asked, annoyed by his reaction.
“Dude, what the fuck happened to you? Did we leave your balls back at baggage claim? Did you just describe her hair and eyes to me? That’s not even close to the usual conversation we have about chicks, and you know it. You must have it bad, Ave. You let a country girl get under your skin, huh?” he teased.
My head fell to the wayside and I let out another soft laugh.
“Yeah, more than she knows. I’d be lying if I said that I didn’t think twice about turning around and going back to get her.”
That was a lie right there- I hadn’t wanted to leave her in the first place, but I had nothing to offer Chase and she deserved the world.
Jesse shrugged, “So, what are you doing? If she means that much to you, turn your ass around and go back.”
His bluntness caught me off-guard. If only it was that simple.
“And do what, Jesse?” Offer he a matching spot in the dumpster I’m probably going to be crashing in once I tell my dad I turned his job down? Yeah, I think not. I don’t have anything to offer her, and in the short time I’ve know her, I want much more than that for her.”
There’s a momentary quiet exchanged between us. I’m not sure if he can sense that I’m not telling him the whole story yet, but I know that he knows that I will when I’m ready.
And first, I need a drink.
“Well, I can’t wait to hear all about her. And I really can’t wait to see how Mr. McGuire takes the news,” he replied finally, putting the car back into drive and pulling off.
I made a sour face in his direction, “Get me a beer and the first part is a done deal, however, if you take me to my dad’s first, I’m gonna punch you so hard in the nuts you’re going to be tasting my fist for days.”
Jesse slammed on the breaks and cocked his head to the side with a wild smile.
“I’m so glad to have the old Avery back. First stop, pop’s house because I am not missing this shit for the world, and because you will definitely need that beer when he’s done with you. The guys will already be at Tegan’s Bar waiting for us. You can pour your heart out for all of us there, lover boy.”
Clenching my eyes shut as he pulled back into traffic, I shook my head.
This definitely wasn’t Texas anymore.
And one thing was certain- I missed Chase already.
