CHASING SAM by Krystal Shannan


This is the final book that the author gave me in exchange for an honest review.  It is a short story about werewolves and the true connection of love.

Book Summary from Amazon: Samantha Demakis doesn’t want a mate right now. She wants to finish her degree and work as a doctor in third world countries. Her birth-rite and family obligations to her status as the first daughter of a noble family beg to differ. In fact, even her wolf seems to be against her. When a chance encounter reveals the man who might just be a perfect fit, will she run? Or will she fight?

Chase Michaels has been alone for seventy-five years. He’s fought in Vietnam, the Persian Gulf, and Afghanistan in the US Army. Somewhat resigned to never finding his true mate, he is shocked when his wolf reacts so strongly to a woman he runs into in the airport. Unprepared for the politics and snobbery of the noble families, Chase finds himself fighting in a different type of war —a war for the heart of a woman he knows should be his.

A lot of things are chasing Sam, but who or what will catch her in the end?

My feelings about the book.  I am not a werewolf fan, I tend to not really understand what is going on when I read books like this, but once again the author did a wonderful job educating a novice like me with her writing.  While I still couldn’t claim to be a werewolf fan, I can say I would read more of her books about them.

The story plot is solid and was interesting to follow.  Both Chase and Sam are very strong characters who are willing to fight for what they believe in and what is right.  I adore her sisters and how all of them were willing to stand up against the insanity they called parents.  A family drama where even though we know there are victims in this scene, we couldn’t label Sam as a victim because she was to stubborn to just lay down and submit.

Chase was a hero in every aspect of the word.  His character impressed me and the author did a great job and transmitting his military personality into every thing he did in life, to protect and serve and fight for the freedom of Sam.  There was drama, a bit of action in the end that made it difficult to put the book down but it was an easy and enjoyable read.  Because of this I give it a four heart rating.  I would recommend this book and if you do love your werewolves then I am sure you will be in for a treat. The love story was wonderful, the points where they switched and the magic used, clearly explained.  It was just a personal preference for me, that I am not a huge werewolf fan.  I can say that once again, it was easy for me to get sucked into the story plot and felt at times I was reading about two different stories in one book.  Such a talent this author has for being able to give the reader that experience.
