Chasing Air


DeLaine Roberts 
~ Synopsis ~
Accidentally marrying into the mob, Dr. Judith Bellonte Donati staged her death with the help of the FBI before the hired hit-man could finish the job. Now with a new life and a new name, Dr. Makenzie Holder struggles daily with the loss of connection with her family and the constant lurking of old ghosts from her past.

Gorgeous millionaire developer Jonathan Bain offers her everything she wants in the way of a family… but his demanding demeanor is a reminder of the life she left behind. But can Makenzie overlook her haunted past and give Jonathan a chance at redemption, or will a chance encounter in the ER with Detective Ryler Buchanan lead to the love of a lifetime?

Chasing Air: A hot romance with a side of turbulence!
~ Excerpt ~
She approached the front door to knock, but suddenly shuddered with nerves. Her brain was telling her this was dangerous territory, but her heart wouldn’t let her run. She knew that any involvement with an officer was a huge risk. She turned to walk back to her car when the front door opened.
“Are you running away, Makenzie?”
Shocked and unprepared, she turned back to him, stammering for her words.
“N, n, no, I left my phone in the car. I thought I would grab it and my charger before I came in.”
She knew her nervous behavior was obvious. But looking down, she realized she was busted.
“Makenzie, you’re holding your phone in your hand. Now, be honest. Were you just going to leave and stand me up?”
By this time, he had walked out onto the front porch with her, holding a hot pad in his hand.
“Busted. Yep, I was ’bout to chicken out, Ryler. I’m not very good with the dating thing. Out of my comfort zone. I’m sorry, I’m a schmuck, I can’t do this. I should go.”
She turned back towards her car only to have Ryler follow her. When he grabbed her arm, it startled her and she jerked back.
“Don’t ever grab me again.”

~ Review ~
This was my first book from DeLaine Roberts and with a beautiful cover like this I was hoping for great things and I was not disappointed. It was a quick, enjoyable read with just enough suspense and turmoil to keep you engaged right till the end.

Trying to escape her past as Judith Donati, Dr. Mackenzie (Mac) Holder is trying to maintain a low profile and stay off the radar.  But that’s exactly where she finds herself.

While working a trauma case in the ER, Mac meets Detective Rylar Buchanan. They get off to a rocky start but Rylar is intrigued by Mac and has decided to keep his eye on her.

But Rylar wasn’t the only one vying for Mac’s attention.   I was not a fan of Jonathan from the start and was glad to see that Mac followed her instincts and her heart where he was concerned.

Mac and Rylar were very likeable characters. They both had their own set of issues but I was praying that they would find a way to be together.  Who knew that the way to a girl’s heart was through her stomach.  But Mac’s sweet tooth has her more than a little sweet on Rylar. 

So, when past threatens to ruin Mac’s future, will she be willing to take the necessary steps?  Go grab this book and enjoy a great read. I will definitely be picking up more works from this author.

~About the Author ~
Amazon best-selling author in Contemporary Romance and Romantic Suspense. Whew, I can't believe that just happened.
Writing has been a long hidden passion. When my grad school professors suggested that I write for my own pleasure, I was skeptical and not certain of the vulnerability. However, I'm so grateful I took the plunge and I will never look back.
With the first two books released in the Running Series, I'm looking forward to releasing Chasing Air, a romantic suspense novel in October and the 3rd installment of The Running Series, My Confession, will follow in December.
Thank you to the readers who have read, shared and reached out. It means the world to me.
