Product Description

Product Description

Lara Hunter’s life is finally headed in the right direction. With a good education, a great new job, and her dear best friend, Kade, by her side, nothing can get in her way until a freak rain storm leaves her sprawled across the road in the middle of a busy intersection during rush hour traffic.

Reed Prescott rakes in millions on business deals every day. He’s driven and hard-edged and his life is quite complicated enough before a silly little girl in outrageous high heels bites it in front of his moving vehicle. With no other choices, he forces her out of the pouring rain and inside his car. His concern isn’t necessarily with her safety, but to ward off any potential lawsuit.

While Lara’s not entirely sure she appreciates Reed’s high-handed helpfulness, Reed’s whole world is rocked by the honesty and genuineness of the captivating beauty underneath that soggy exterior. Reed’s success in business has always been fueled by hate for his dysfunctional birth family, so when the potential for love stands in front of him, can this hardened man find a way to chase after happy?

Highly recommended in every way, this is a well written, fun, romantic and sexy novel that you will in one sitting. I bought this book based on the amazing reviews and the fact a debut author had been in the top 20 New York Times best sellers list for so long - and I Am so pleased I did as I totally understand why. Reed and Lara are amazing individuals but far better as a dynamic couple that calm each other. Chasing Happy is the story of Reed, an arrogant millionaire playboy and Lara, a quiet beauty embarking on her first steps towards the life she has always wanted. Love wasn't in the plans for either, but when their paths cross and undeniable chemistry ignites forever changing their minds, lives, and hearts. Reed’s anger is intense, yet when he looks at Lara his entire demeanour changes and you find yourself feeling empathy for this gentle giant. Lara is the epitome of beauty, charisma, and class, yet she still views herself as this weakling of a child whose father deeply neglected her. Both are still struggling to overcome their pasts and believe they are wanted and worthy of love. It's not necessarily the most original story but it's holy entertaining and unputdownnable. Can't wait for more from this exciting new author.

I'm amazed that this is a debut release. Extraordinary!

The book is so well-written with a solid plot and well-defined characters. It's definitely a contemporary romance fiction, so don't expect total realism, e.g., I want her job (unfortunately, my boss expects a lot more productivity from me :-D), but Lara's career shines at the end, though.

The overall feel to me is a little like a modern-day, edgier Cinderella meets Beauty and the Beast.

Rylie Roberts gives authenticity to the voices of both Reed and Lara, so we readers can fully participate in their separate thoughts/behaviours/back-history as they travel on their adjoined journey to a new place. Oh, and there are some seductive scenes, including one that starts in an elevator. Kade, Lara's life-long friend is an important voice in this book.

Congratulations Rylie on this generous and absorbing narrative...hoping you have another on the go, ready for release soon!

Lara virtually crashes into Reed, then a chain of interesting events occur. Initially not knowing he's her boss, she takes a liking to him, there's some good chemistry going on as well.
Actually despite their childhoods it's a rather happy story. You can just feel these two are so good together. There's a few ups & downs but nothing major.
Her friend Kade is a good protector & I liked how he & Reed eventually bonded. I have a feeling that in another book Kade will meet that certain someone. Maybe I'm wrong.
Anyway I love it when characters connect & you join them on their journey.

This book wasn't my cup of tea unfortunately the blurb sounded great but for me fell short. The female lead was to much into self doubt for someone so well educated and employed by a big firm at 27 she just seemed dense in what was really going on around her surely anyone would have connected Reed Presscot being the CEO of a multi billion dollar company called Press Inc, as for Reed he was a superficial lead role and just always seemed to be condescending rather than the alpha I presume he was meant to be.

As a debut novel, Chasing Happy is great entry into the literary world & I would highly recommend it!

Laramie aka Lara is driven by her past to make a better future for the little girl she one was.
Reed is a wealthy business man driven by hatred he's carried since his childhood.

Lara has finally secured her dream job in the field of her study. She is intimidated by this new start but sets off on her first day in her "lucky jimmy choos" with determination to succeed. She doesn't make it to far before falling in the pouring rain right in front of Reed's car. Reed scoops her up & takes her to his office to make sure she's ok but doesn't really see her until after his assistant Margaret has seen that she has been tended to to avert a law suit. With that one eventual glance everything changes for them both as they begin the path of personal discovery. Reed discovers that Lara is able to calm his anxiety & tension & gives him hope against the odds. Lara initially thinks that Reed would be perfect for her best friend & roommate Kade!

Their story is well written, I was so engrossed that I barely put it down until I had finished it.

Light hearted reading where the h gets hit by a car on her way to work by the H.
It sets the tone for some sparks to fly.
Always find a bit of scrappiness in the run up interesting.
And these to bring it.
Kade the bff is a good buffer for the h. Could do with one of these.

I loved this story, the rush, the lucky jimmi choo's and how they feel for each other. Yes towards the middle when the hero still thought he could misbehave because he had the money and letting her go wouldn't be hard, it annoyed me, but I loved how things progressed from there. She became more than just someone to warm his bed. I enjoyed the end and the changes they underwent.
