How far would you go to reignite the spark you once had?

Two years later, Trace and Olivia are as much in love as they’ve always been. But the spark they once had for life is waning and Trace is determined that they find it again. His solution? A road trip. But he doesn’t tell Olivia the real reason they’re heading north.Olivia is happy to go on a road trip and have more adventures with Trace. Besides, she needs a distraction from the soap opera her life has become. With college over, this is the perfect opportunity to chase down the carefree girl she once was. But life isn’t a fairytale and you can only escape reality for so long.

Love, laughs, and a hidden agenda.

That’s the name of the game when you’re Chasing Olivia.

Alexis says…

Chasing Olivia takes place 2 years after Finding Olivia.  During those two years, Olivia and Trace overcome the attack Olivia endured by the hands of the man she thought was her father. Olivia is also getting ready to graduate college with an English degree and start searching for jobs to be a teacher. Her mom has finally found a man that is worthy of her love and unfortunately Avery and Luca are no longer together.  When Trace decides they need to take a road trip so they can have some new experiences together, Olivia willingly obliges.  During their road trip, they both have new experiences, family they did not know existed, as well as new bonds that are forged.

Throughout this book, you can definitely tell that Trace and Olivia are perfect for each other.  Trace has helped Olivia blossom into the woman she has become in the last two years. He also has some wonderful things up his sleeve during this trip, which will keep you swooning to the end.  Don’t get me wrong his self-assured, witty, cocky-self is still there, but his devotion to Olivia is crystal clear.  Olivia on the other hand is the perfect complement to Trace. She puts him in his place, does not allow his head to get any bigger than it already is, and lets him be who he really is, flannel shirts and all.  She makes sure that he doesn’t settle for what he’s been groomed to do when he grows up, shows him unconditional love, and has the ability to get him to open up which is not an easy fete.

I want to stay away from spoiling any of the adventure that Olivia and Trace had so I will leave it at that.  I enjoyed this sweet ending for Olivia and Trace and the epilogue was also very cute.  Though I have to say, I am still holding out for Avery and Luca’s story.  Yes…that is a HUGE hint!!!
