Blog Tour & Giveaway: Kirsty Moseley's "Enjoying the Chase".

The Hopeless Romantics Book Blog are pleased to be a part of the Blog Tour & Giveaway for Kirsty Moseley's "Enjoying the Chase."

Amazon UK:


Nate Peters is living the playboy life. He has great friends, a great job, no responsibilities, no girlfriend, and he loves it. Nate, being incredibly skilled with a pick-up line, has never failed to get a girl in his life… until one day he meets Rosie York. Rosie is completely uninterested in him. Being unable to stand a dented ego, Nate makes it his mission to win her over. Not used to putting in much effort, Nate is surprisingly enjoying the chase of this off-limits little brunette. Maybe he has finally met his match… But Rosie has a few surprises of her own which will make it remarkably more difficult for him to get close to her.

Blog Tour Review-Jo Rushton 

"Enjoying the Chase" was another brilliant book by Kirsty Moseley. This author always delivers when it comes to writing a heart warming love story and this was is no exception. I loved this story of "player" Nate and "hard to get" Rosie who we first back back in "Nothing to Lose." Nate was Ashton's best friend/ flirty room mate and colleague in the SWAT team and Rosie was Anna's best friend. Don't worry though, you don't have to have read "Nothing to Lose" before reading this (although it was a fab book too and I would definitely recommend it). 

Nate was the ultimate man whore and a master of the cheesy chat up lines. He (of course) was sexy as hell and made most girls go weak at the knees if he so much as looked at them. Except for Rosie, that is. Rosie was smart, beautiful and strong and was determined to stay away from men like Nate. But why? Something was stopping her from being even a little bit dazzled by him and my mind worked overtime trying to work out the reason. Rosie kept me second guessing for a while. 

When Nate met Rosie he was blown away by her beauty. He wanted nothing more than to show her the "Nate Peters special" (lol)  but his usual method of impressing the girls wasn't working on her. Nate was not going to give up easily though and it's a good job because this was one hell of a long chase. 

Moving from one girl to the next sometimes left me feeling empty. 
Sometimes I just longed for someone to hold, protect and call my own. 
Since I'd met Rosie I hadn't been able to get her out of my head, 
she'd taken over everything and I knew I needed to give it my best shot with her.

Because Rosie played hard to get, Nate found himself spending more and more time with her... but the more time he spent with her... the more his feelings for her grew and the more his play boy lifestyle went out of the window. 

As I raked my eyes over every inch of her face, I felt my life changing. 
I felt my priorities shifting around, and everything fell into place. 
My life finally seemed like it was in track. The funny thing was, that I hadn't even 
realised that it was this girl that I'd been waiting and looking for all these years.

Nate was a changed man, and I for one, loved the shift in his character. Now all he had to do was prove this to Rosie. Easier said then done. Bring on the chase! 

I truly enjoyed this story and  I felt that I really got to know that characters well. I was  pleased I got the opportunity to catch up with Ashton and Anna too.  It was lovely to see what developments had happened in their lives. I loved how both couple's stories were interwoven within the book. At one point though, I did find that the story was beginning to get a bit too long but that was until something happened that I was totally not expecting. Something so bad that I was reduced to big ugly tears. I feared the worst. Kirsty had truly lulled me into a false sense of security. I was totally unprepared for the emotional wreck that I became. 

By the end of the story, everything had turned around for the better and I was left with big smile on my face and a warm fuzzy feeling in my heart. "Enjoying the Chase" ended beautifully with the most perfect epilogue. Once again Kirsty did not disappoint. I just love a HEA! 

Everything was perfect. I never thought that I would be this happy with a man. 
For all my life, I had never even dared to dream that I would have the perfect guy 
all wrapped up into one gorgeous, charming, smutty perverted package. 
I really was the luckiest girl in the world.

"Enjoying the Chase" gets 4.5 fuzzy hearts from me! 


“I’ll see you Friday then.” She bit her lip as she opened the front door, waiting for me to leave. 

I gulped, needing to push my luck a little further. “Before I go, I wondered if you’d be interested in making a little bet with me.” I raised a challenging eyebrow. 

She rolled her eyes, laughing. “I’m not betting on how the date is going to end, if that’s what this is going to be about.” 

“No, actually, I was going to bet you twenty bucks that I could kiss you without using my lips.” 

Her nose crinkled up as she frowned. “That’s impossible. You can’t kiss someone without using your lips,” she countered. I waited, letting her think about it while silently praying she hadn’t seen this trick before. “Alright, yeah, I’ll take that bet,” she suddenly agreed, smiling confidently. 

As I took another step towards her, she instantly stepped back and bumped into the wall behind her. I smiled at her deer-trapped-in-the-headlights look. The vulnerability of her and her cute little bewildered expression made my lungs constrict. Unable to keep the smile off my face, I bent my head slowly towards hers. Her breathing sped, but her eyes never left mine. As my lips touched hers, I tried not to moan at the soft feel of them. My whole body was itching to grab hold of her, kiss the life out of her and hear her moan my name. In that moment, I knew I shouldn’t have kissed her, because now I didn’t want to leave. 

I forced myself to pull back after a couple of seconds. “I lost,” I whispered to her obviously shocked face. 

Author Bio:

My name is Kirsty. I was born in Hertfordshire, England. In 2000 I moved to Norfolk, it was there that I met my husband, Lee. Now, what can I say about Lee, apart from everyone should have one? He's my biggest supporter, and I wouldn't be where I am today without his encouragement and endless support. He is my inspiration behind most of my male leads, I always try to bring a little of him in somewhere, be it his kindness, selflessness, or just his ability to make me feel treasured. 

In 2005, I was gifted with the birth of my son. He is, and always will be, the best thing I have ever done in my life. As you can probably tell, I'm a very proud mummy. 

I have always been interested in writing, but after the birth of my son I accidentally came across an amateur writing site. After a couple of months of just reading on there, I finally plucked up the courage and posted one of my stories. I was shocked and overwhelmed by the support of readers on there and they gave me the confidence to get where I am today.

In April 2012, I self-published my first novel ‘The Boy Who Sneaks in my Bedroom Window’. And in October 2012 I took the plunge again, publishing my second novel, 'Always You.'

Lastly, if I had to sum myself up in one word, it would probably be ‘daydreamer’ – but unlike most of my school teachers, I don’t necessarily view that as a bad thing. After all, I read somewhere once that books are like waking dreams….
