Author: Sondrae Bennett

Genre: Paranormal romance
Length: Novella eBook
Authors website 

He'll do whatever it takes to earn back her trust.

A vacation is exactly what Ethan needs to escape the mate hungry females in his pack. Determined to have fun, he can't think of a better way to start than sampling all the different flavors the shifter only resort has to offer, and not the food variety. But after he meets Gwen, no one else holds any interest for him. Ethan came on
vacation to avoid mating. There's no way he's going to give up his freedom without a fight.

Gwen is devastated when she hears her mate denying everything they are to each other. She can't sit by, watching him fool around with other girls at the resort. Or worse, crawl back, unable to resist the mating pull but not really wanting her. She needs to get away and her own vacation sounds like the perfect plan. But she should have remembered what her mother always taught her, never run from a predator unless you want them to chase you. The hunt is on . . .

WARNING: This title contains explicit sex.

Chasing Paradise is a good steamy romance. I liked the fact that it was hot and quick to read. This story could most definitely be standalone from the first book, but I do suggest going back to the first one if you just read this one. 

I took a liking to Ethan from the start. He is alpha and all male. His male side shows up right off the bat. You know how they run their mouth and get themselves into trouble? Well, Ethan says something and Gwen hears it and well she takes him on a little chase. 
Needless to say I was very glad this was a novella because she was getting on my last nerve by holding back because of it, but hey I have to admit I could relate to Gwen because she did what most women would do lead them on a good chase. Yep, let the chase begin. 

All in all I did like both characters and I really enjoyed the fact that Ethan went on the chase after Gwen and never gave up. I liked how the family was brought into the picture and I would recommend this to someone that loves a short sweet romance story with some tension.
