Thrilling Ethan is the second book in the Thrill of The Chase series by Anna Paige. It can be read as a standalone, but I recommend reading book one as well, because it helps introduce characters and other background information that will enhance your reading experience of this book- not to mention that it’s an incredible read, too. I fell in love with Ms. Paige’s writing and characters in book one and thought she would be hard pressed to top that book. Well, I was wrong. This book was EVERYTHING you could want from a Rockstar romance- but has Ms. Paige’s incredible spin on the topic. I couldn’t have loved the characters, storyline and details any more than I do. I am having trouble conveying just how great this story is or doing it the justice it deserves. I fell in love with the characters in book one, but WOW, this book just blew me away! This was Ethan and Emily’s story and I loved every detail, every word, every minute. I smiled, laughed, teared up, outright bawled like a baby and felt every single word! I got to the end a complete blubbering mess, it wrecked me, in a completely great way! I was still IN the story, I didn’t want to leave these incredible characters or their breathtaking story. It’s been a few days since I finished the book, and I have even read a few books since then, but this one is still on my mind, seared into my heart for all time. So, I am here to confess that I am addicted to the Thrill of the Chase, I am an Anna Paige junkie and I can’t wait for my next fix.
Thrilling Ethan by Anna Paige certainly lives up to its title and is totally thrilling and amazing and beautifully written. Anna has written a story that is so full of emotions that I found myself in tears as I navigated this journey with these outstanding characters and their world. This book proves that family comes in all shapes and sizes and that love can heal places we didn’t know could be healed. The story equally had me laughing out loud and swooning as our main characters relationship developed not only between themselves but with their friends as well. Anna has certainly blown this story out of the water and I can’t wait to see what comes next in this series. I am now off to read the first book as I don’t want to miss out on any of Annas work.
Thrilling Ethan is a well written, cohesive story that has all the feels. It has the perfect mix of drama, humor, sexy times and heartache. The story and characters draw you into their world of rock stars and NYC life, without losing their realistic down to earth qualities.
This book had the potential to be predictable; a rock star bad boy is cleaned up by the sweet fan. This was not the case with Thrilling Ethan! There were surprises, twists and depth of emotion that kept me turning pages long into the night.
What I loved the most about this book was that there was drama and emotion without silly game playing. Emily and Ethan are in their mid to late 20's and their maturity is reflected in their characters actions and dialogue.
Thrilling Ethan is the second book in The Thrill of the Chase series, however, it can be read as a standalone. I have not read book 1, and I don't think this was a detriment to my reading enjoyment. I will be reading book 1, Chasing Kade and any other books from this series as soon as they are released. All of the secondary characters are well developed and I look forward to their stories.
I ran the gamut of emotions when reading Thrilling Ethan, a testament to the talent of Anna Paige's writing ability.
