Y’all. 💗 If you love those small town romance stories with a little drama, a little southern sass and a whole lotta love, you need to read this one.

Tate grew up in an abusive household with deadbeat parents forcing her to step into the parenting role for her 7 younger siblings. After years of struggling, she now owns a beauty salon with her two sisters and is the de facto matriarch of the Murphy clan. Tate’s admires Matt from afar for a long while but fate has their paths cross. When he takes a shine to her, she doesn’t understand why. He usually dates super-model looking women, wherein she’s short and all curves. When he finally convinces her to give it a try, drama ensues. From estranged family members wreaking havoc to jealous members of the town just not willing to let the last Chase brother settle down with “the fat girl” from the wrong side of town.

In addition to being an adorable love story, the themes of self-hate, self-doubt, victim-blaming and fat-shaming are all important issues to discuss in today’s world of super thin, plastic superficiality. It’s a reminder that the true man of your dreams is going to love you just the way you are. 💕💖

The Chase boys. Ridiculously hot and notoriously single.

All of Petal, Georgia, is waiting for the last Chase brother to fall. At least, that’s how it feels to firefighter Matt Chase, who’s getting a little anxious himself. His brothers have all found love—why hasn’t he? But fate, in the form of a curvaceous hairdresser, is about to change that.

Salon owner Tate Murphy has come a long way from her trailer-park roots, taking care of her seven siblings along the way. Even though she’s put the past behind her, she knows someone like Matt Chase is way out of her league. But that doesn’t stop her from getting a good eyeful every chance she gets.

When a car accident throws them together, Tate gets more than an eyeful—she gets the whole package. Not that she’s complaining. But when small-town bias and her own insecurities get in the way of their relationship, Matt will have to prove he doesn’t care where she came from…only where she goes.

The Chase is on. One small town. Four hot brothers. And enough heat to burn up anyone who dares to get close. Don’t miss the other books in the series: Taking Chase, Giving Chase and Chased.
