Book Info-
Title: Chasing Nikki
Series: Chasing Nikki Series #1
By: Lacey Weatherford
Publication Date: February 29th, 2012 by Moonstruck Media

Chase Walker used to be a good kid—charming, athletic, and with a bright future ahead, but that was before travesty struck his life, sinking him into deep despair. Caught up in a world of drugs and alcohol, he doesn’t notice time slipping away until he’s arrested for underage drinking one night.

Fed up with watching her son destroy his life, Chase’s mom relocates him to live in a small ranching community with his ex-military grandfather. Chase is far from happy about the situation until he meets, Nikki, the cute cheerleader who won’t give football players like him the time of day.

Chase enjoys a good challenge though and sets out to claim Nikki for his own. He soon discovers she’s more than a pretty face—she’s a balm to his troubled spirit also. But when tragedy strikes Nikki’s life too, suddenly Chase finds himself put to the ultimate test. Can he trust Nikki, and all that she’s taught him? Will it be enough?


My Review of book 1: Chasing Nikki

For this tour I decided to read book 1.

So here is how I thought about this book.....

First half, Typical love story:

Chase is typical teenage boy who is starting to show some of his wild, bad boy side. So, his mom sends him to his dad's to live

Nikki is a typical cheerleader. However, she doesn't really give Chase the time of day. At first ....

So, you can see where I'm going with this

Second half and ending of book, HOLY STARS!! OMG !!! ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME???

I was about to get bored with this book when a MASSIVE (and I mean MASSIVE) twist hit this book. 

Nikki and Chase begin a relationship, but there something happens. I really, really, really don't want to say BUT this is the first time I was thrown for a complete loop!!

I cried like a small child. I even had to put it down for an hour, to compose myself to finish!!

READ THIS BOOK!!!!!!! I will be reading book 2 ... soon!!! 

About The Author-
Lacey Weatherford was born in Ft. Meade Maryland while her father was serving in the military. She has been a life long resident of Arizona, spending most of her time growing up in the small rural town of Clay Springs.

It was while she was attending the small country school in Clay Springs, that she read her first "big" book at the age of eight. It was a Nancy Drew novel and Lacey was instantly hooked. She read every book that she could find in the series and decided that she wanted to write stories too.

Lacey spent a lot of time at the library from that time forward, even volunteering in her later teen years and early twenties. She would don a crazy clown outfit for the Friends of the Library fundraisers in an effort to help get the new town library built.

When she and her husband moved away from the area, Lacey took the opportunity to take some creative writing classes at the local college to help further along her interests. Several years later, they were blessed with the opportunity to move back to Clay Springs with their family. The town had finally succeeded in building their library and Lacey had the opportunity to be President of the Friends of the Library for a very short time, before relocating.

Lacey and her family still live in the White Mountains of Arizona, where she continues to write young adult novels that have a fantasy/fairytale or paranormal bent to them, as well as being sure to include a great romantic storyline!
