Tag Chaser:
Paisley Bronson is a 27 year old successful advertising professional, but the most exciting part of her life happens outside of work. Claiming the life of a tag chaser toward the end of her college career has taught her one thing - never get too close. She has enjoyed her dating lifestyle, but when her best friend makes a bet that she won't ever be able to date a normal guy, her competitive nature takes control and she vows to change the game.
When Paisley meets the incredibly handsome and practically perfect Corbin Ray, she begins to think keeping her word might be easier than she thought. But when an accidental discovery reveals that Corbin is in the Army, she knows she must run the other way and never look back. Although it kills her, she aims to move on and look for a new prospect.
There's just one small problem.
Paisley's been assigned a new client at work, and his name is Corbin Ray.
Will Paisley and Corbin give in to the chemistry between them, or will their past and present complications keep them apart?
Immerse yourself in this fun and irresistibly naughty game of cat and mouse.

Song Chaser:
For more than a year, Tanner West has tried to shake his feelings for his long time best friend, Paisley Bronson. She was the perfect girl to fit the lyrics in all his favorite songs – the girl he had always wanted. When she fell in love with another man before Tanner had the chance to tell her how he felt, he was left with no resolve to find love again. Burying himself in school and easy girls has become his new lifestyle, but when Kellee Brooks shows up at his favorite bar, he begins to think there may be another verse to his song, after all.
Kellee Brooks moved to New York City for one thing: escape. Growing up in a small town where her entire life was planned out for her, she’s desperate to break free and find herself without following the same path as her mom. Kellee thought working at the local dive bar would mean more money for school, but when she meets the smoldering, scarred honey eyes of Tanner West, she finds there’s much more hiding in the smoky building than just a few tips.
With Paisley still haunting Tanner and Kellee vowing to save anyone the trouble of loving her, will the pain and fear keep them apart – or will they find a way to rewrite their song together?
Break free with this heartbreaking story of letting go and letting love in.

Straight No Chaser:
Tanner West has been through a lot when it comes to his best friend, Paisley Bronson. From being there through her dark past to falling in love with her while she fell for someone else, their story is far from perfect. After Tanner found his true love in Kellee Brooks, things began to fall into place. But when Paisley calls Tanner with surprising news, asking him to step up to the best friend plate once again, he must decide if he's up for the challenge.
This is a short story bromance and should be read after Tag Chaser and Song Chaser.

Tag Chaser (Chaser #1) by Kandi Steiner

Stars: 5 

This "chaser" turns into a runner! Wonderful story of recovering from betrayal and facing your fears head on ... after a bit of running :) My husband has to travel for work and is sometimes gone 3-4 weeks, I can't even imagine what it would be like if he was deployed. Gone for months at a time fighting for his life and our freedom. Thanks to all those who serve or have family in the service. And now a bit about the book ...

Paisley and McKenzie are best friends and have been for quite a while. Neither of them have settled down yet, even though they graduated from college a few years ago. Tonight they are heading to their favorite bar, where everyone knows their name. As Kenz is ordering, Paisley notices some creep checking her out. She tries to move away from him and somewhat succeeds as they make it to the dance floor. But in no time, Mr. Creepster is grinding up against Kenz, Paisley tells him to get lost so of course he grabs her next. He is revolting, drunk, smells and is hurting her arms, but before she can even decide how to get out of the situation, strong arms wrap around her and pull her from danger. She is mesmerized by the Dreamboat who is about to deck Mr. Creepster, she jumps in before that happens, if they fight he'll get kicked out before she can get to know him. The bouncers remove the creepy drunk and now the fun begins. There is only one problem, Paisley just made a bet with Kenz to stop chasing after military men. Anyone want to bet if the muscular knight in shinning armor is in the service?

Favorite passage: "I think I'm more of a dark knight than a knight in shinning armor."

Will his chasing lead him to the right girl this time?

When I think of Tanner and think of someone who is funny, cocky, lovable, and giving. He is the best friend you will ever want. But when he tells Paisley, his best friend, he loves her -- she adds one more characteristic to the list: broken. This is a great romance about moving on, being honest, fighting the urge to run and fighting for what you want. There are great comic relief moments with Mee Ma and of course the too hot to handle moments - especially when Tanner signs to Kellee. This is one chase you don't want to miss! And now a bit about the story...

Tanner is almost finished with med school and instead of celebrating his accomplishments, he is either throwing himself into his work or attempting to sleep off the jack and coke from the night before. He has lost Paisley, she didn't love him back, and now he doesn't know what to do. He has moped for a year. Some buddies get him to the bar one night and he sees Kellee - it isn't long before the banter between them leads to their first date. Now the only problem is can they choose happiness? Kellee is afraid she will repeat steps from her past and hurt him and he still isn't over Paisley...

Favorite passages: 
- She may be hot, but I honestly want to slam my head into the bar. I could have better conversations with a chalkboard.
- "Nothing good in this life comes without pain, but you'll never figure that out if you can't stick around long enough to see the rainbow that comes after the storm."
- "I can handle the gobbler, you just worry about your cock."

Stars: 5 

Great story of Tanner and Corbin getting closer. There is drinking, stripping, fighting and a wedding! Be sure you have read both books in the Chaser series first.

Kandi Steiner is a Creative Writing and Advertising/Public Relations graduate from the University of Central Florida living in Tampa with her husband. Kandi works full time as a social media specialist, but also works part time as a Zumba fitness instructor and blackjack dealer.
Kandi started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic (like most girls brought up on Disney movies).
When Kandi isn’t working or writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys beach days, movie marathons, live music, craft beer and sweet wine – not necessarily in that order.
