Chase (Resisting Love #1) by Chantal Fernando & Dawn Martens Review and Interview With The Chase, Kade, and James


Moving in with a guy you only met once? Stupid. 

But for student Layla Crawford, this was reality. 

Chase Jackson is a renowned playboy and self professed commitment phobe, that is until he meets Layla. 

Blinded by his intensity to have her, Chase will stop at nothing to make her his. 

With a jealous ex and old conquests repeatedly making appearances, Chase' s skeletons come out of the closet one by one, each one pushing Layla further and further away. 

Layla is determined to keep her distance. Chase now has to convince the only woman he has ever wanted that he is worth the gamble.

My Review

5 of 5 Chase Jackson

Oh where oh where to begin for this review..... TOTALLY F%^&*$# AWESOME BOOK! Okay I want to curse some more but I will refrain from doing that.My God I have never read a book so dam funny and full of roller coaster emotions. One minute I would be laughing and the next minute I would get pissed off because some people just don't get it when they are not wanted so they try and ruin things for others. But let me tell you Chase and his brothers are Greek Sex God's because man oh man these boys are hot as hell but they also protect what is theirs and they are very fierce in protecting Layla.

Chase Jackson is a player and a business man. He is gorgeous and he knows it. He does not do relationships but instead ops for one night stands and he is very up front and honest with the women when he picks them up. They know the drill it is chew and screw and then goodbye. He never does a girl twice is his motto until he is at a party and sees a beautiful girl. His heart starts racing and he is so entranced and enthralled by her he can not keep his eyes off of her. Only one small problem the girl he is looking at is his best friends cousin and Ryder is not having any off that and he makes Chase promise to stay away from his cousin. Chase does but still keeps watching the girl from across the party. Chase knows if she looks his way he will break his promise but Ryder doesn't give him that chance because Ryder tells them it's time to leave the party. So Chase leaves behind the girl that has made his heart wake up.

Fast forward some time and Chase is in a club with all these girls surrounding him and he is on the prowl for his next girl when he spots her the girl from the party a while ago Ryder's cousin. He knows he has to have her but he is not sure if she will even look at him because he has all these girls all over him. But then the unthinkable happens and she looks at him and smiles and Chase loses his shit and pursues her.

Layla and her best Nikki are out celebrating Layla finding an apartment near her college. They go to the club ready to party like no one's business when Layla and Nikki spot this gorgeous guy across the room. Nikki realizes he is staring at Layla and tells Layla to look and when she does her breath is caught in her throat because this guy is finer than any guy she has ever meet. As Layla and the stranger look at each other Layla knows she is in trouble. Chase approaches her and they go off. They share on kiss and Chase is a goner and so is Layla.

This is where the story gets good so dam good that I will not ruin it for you but I will say this. Chase will have to work very hard to get Layla because his past will come back full force to haunt him and Layla will have to read through the bullshit to see what is true and what is not. Jealous women can be bitches and she is going to have to stand by the man she loves. Chase has never done this whole relationship thing before and he wants it bad so badly he is willing to do whatever it takes to have his Layla.

Will Chase be able to get Layla? Will Layla be able to deal with the craziness that comes with Chase? This is a MUST READ BEACH BOOK! Plus you will need some ice cubes to cool you off or just the beach water because this book is hotter than hell!

Dawn : 

I drink too much, Swear too much, and Read too much. I don't have a filter, and I tend to speak before I think. 

I live in Alberta Canada. 

I have an amazing pain in the ass husband, and two little girls. 

I have a huge love of reading. I've been a beta reader, and helped a few authors edit. On top of those things, because I don't plan to give them up, I figured it was time to take the leap and write a book. 

It wouldn't be possible without my girl Chantal!!! 


I'm 26 and a mother of three beautiful little boys. 

I've been happily married since I was 18 and live in Western Australia. 

I love to read and write; I'm a dreamer. 

Chase is my debut novel, written with my friend Dawn.

Interview with Chase, James, and Kade:

This is the hottest and I mean HOTTEST INTERVIEW I have ever done. Holy SHIT sitting in a room with three of the hottest guys has me sweating and my panties just a little wet! (hahaha winking) Seeing all those muscles and Tatts on these guys is doing something to my heart so early in the morning. And Dam I need me a drink for real like a rum and coke because my nerves are getting the better part of me. Chase has such an intense look on his face and Kade lord he is such a flirt so much so he better behave because the redhead firecracker Nikki will kick his ass if he does not behave and O.M.G James my my my ...... he is the love I mean LOVE of my life! I love the snarky ass smirk he has on his face and the gleam in his eyes as he is looking at me. Lord I need the freezer before I combust!

Good Morning today is a great morning because we have three awesome and gorgeous guys visiting us. We have Chase Jackson, Kade Steele, and James Steele from the book Chase (Resisting Love #1) by Chantal Fernando & Dawn Martens. These boys are the hottest things to hit the book world since my first book boyfriend Wesley Rush from DUFF by Kody Keplinger.

Guys thanks for coming and stopping by A Diary Of A Book Addict. I have to say that I am desperate need of some ice water because it is certainly hot in here since your arrival. Lord I don’t believe I have ever met so many gorgeous guys at once. Be still my heart boys because the girls are going to be mauling you for years to come!

- Thanks for having us. ~ chase (Chase always the gentleman due to Layla of course)

- Kade just winks. (Lord help me I need a defibrillator to jump start my heart. I think my heart is in my feet ;))

- Yo – James (God that Yo what I could make him scream.... oh lord I better behave ;) Jesus as James stares at me I am so embarrassed because he is so fine I can't keep my eyes off of his mouth. The things i would love to do to his mouth. Man girl get your mind out of the gutter! tehehehe Will I survive this interview????? )

Chase let me start with you since you are the oldest brother and your book came out first. Since the release of your book you have been the topic of all ladies. Lord Layla better hold on tight to you because girls are lining up to get their hands on you. 

How does it feel to be so wanted by all the ladies? What was it about Layla that sealed the deal for you? When you first saw Layla at Ryder’s party what was it that caught your attention?

(lord I feel like a rambling fool... seriously these guys make me nervous with the htoughts going through me head)

 I used to love the attention from the ladies, but now it just gets me into shit with Layla. Having said that, I did get Layla. So I’m going to say it feels pretty good! 

Fuck I can’t even explain what it was about Layla. She is fucking beautiful to start with, the hair, the body.. fuck I’m getting hard just thinking about it. But it was just something about her- her laugh, her aura. The fact that Ryder was so protective of her told me she was something special too. Sometimes there is just chemistry between two people. Love at first sight- whatever. It just happens.

Chase what was going through your mind when you found out Layla was hanging around Derek? 

 I was fucking pissed. Thought he was trying to take what was mine, I mean who wouldn’t want Layla?

Are you excited about being a father? 

 I can’t wait to be a father. I’m going to work hard at being a good one. 

Do you think you and your father will ever repair your relationship?

 Fuck no. Damage is done. I won’t have him in my life, near my family. 

James you have stolen so many girls hearts (including mines and if you want it you can have it) with your brooding sexy ways. You are so mysterious and shit it is annoying because we never know what you are doing or who you are with. All us girls are ready to drop our panties for the brooding brother who is quiet. You know the saying you need to watch out for the quiet ones..... well do we have to watch out for you?

We know you love Layla like a sister but what made you decide she was the one to be your new roommate? 

 She seemed normal. She was hot- added bonus. She was very sweet and polite. Oh did I say she was hot?

What did you think when you found out Layla could actually cook? 

 I was thrilled; no one cooks in our house except for breakfasts. I love a good home cooked meal. And Layla is the best. (don’t tell my mom that)

Where do you go when you disappear? (the club??????) 

 Ha, wouldn’t you like to know. (yes because I want you in my room in my bed so I can strip for you)

How do you feel about Chase and Layla being together?

 At first I was pissed. I know what Chase was like. Layla is like my sister, I didn’t want her hurt. But Chase has proved his love for her, and I think they are fucking perfect together. 

Are you happy you are going to be an uncle?

 Fucking thrilled. That kid is going to be extremely spoilt by all of us. 

Do you have a significant other in your life right now?

 You’re very nosy, you know that? (yes very fucking nosy because I want you! Lord what I wouldn't give to have you right now right here in this interview room.......) I may be seeing someone. But you will have to wait and see who it is. (God you are killing me! Dam throw a girl a bone would ya......)


Kade….. Kade…… Kade lord help us because you my friend out of all three brothers are a hot ass mess! (and the girl that captures your heart is one lucky BITCH! Because the things I would do to you would rock your world, tehehehehe I need to behave because my heart really belongs to James but Kade my God you are a Greek Sex God and you know it!) You are a force to be reckoned with. 

What did you first think about Layla when you saw she was your new roommate?

 She was hot! I Thought it would be hard to keep my hands off her… that ass! *Chase growls* *Kade chuckles* (smart ass you better watch it because Chase is going to get you after the interview)

How do you feel about her and Chase being together?

Same as James. I got to know Layla, she’s the sister I never wanted. If Chase had hurt her I would have killed him. Hell when I thought he did I punched him. *Chase grumbles under his breath and rubs his jaw*

Inquiring minds want to know if you go down to the club to see the strippers?

 Strippers? I may have dropped by a time or two. *winks* (hahaha you are a HOT mess but I love it!)

What were your first thoughts about Nikki when you saw her?

 Nikki. I thought she was hot as hell. A guaranteed good lay. The second she opened her mouth, things changed. I love a woman with attitude, someone who can call me on my shit. I don’t know how it happened but we ended up connecting on a whole different level. Fuck, listen to me. I sound almost as bad as Chase. (hahaha that is not bad, that is good because Chase got Layla and she is loyal and devoted to him)

Can you tell us a little bit about your relationship with Nikki?

 She’s fucking stubborn. I’ll leave it at that for now.

What do you think about Ryder liking Nikki?

 He better fucking stay away from her if he knows what’s good for him! (Oh shit those are fighting words... I think you better get ready to fight Ryder for Nikki because he wants her and has for a long time and he is finally going to tell her so good luck with that!)

Guys thanks for stopping by and sharing your time with me and your fans! Kade we look forward to reading your book next and I know speaking from experience I will need my large cup of ice water because you my friend are too hot to handle! Chase please tell Layla we said hi and can’t wait to find out what you are having! James I look forward to reading your book soon because I love a brooding man!

Chase, James, and Kade all say Later babes!
