This is one of those books that you think is going to go one way, then along comes a huge tangled web of mystery and suspense, deceit, romance and intrigue to through you off balance and have you clinging to the edge off your seat and turning the pages so fast just to devour the next words. Bloody Brilliant!!!
The story was unpredictable and very well written from start to finish, i was whisked away into Jenna, Cale and Jake's conflicting love triangle, there lives and all the events woven into the plot.
Author Micki Fredericks has an amazing ability to tell a story, she twisted the words in this book to keep you interested the whole way through this wonderful unique book.
I cried big fat ugly tears, i loved (Jake, hmm *sigh*), i hated (geez did i hate him, read the book and you will know which him) god it was just crazy, but damn it was crazy good!
Oh and dibs on Jake please, that guy was a good guy, douche, followed by dreamy awesome.
5* read without a doubt!

Chasing Jenna is the first book that I have read by Micki Fredericks, and it is her second book. I have to say that I was a bit skeptical going into this book because while it sounded great, I wasn't sure that it would deliver being from a fairly new author. I have to say though that this book was a very pleasant surprise, and I really enjoyed it. It was so much more than I ever expected, and it kept me guessing the entire way through. This book was a bit dark and intense, but not so much so that I was overwhelmed. I am really looking forward to seeing what else Micki Fredericks does in the future.
Jenna Clausen finally has a chance to get out of the crappy life she had been given, and she is using this opportunity to start fresh. She left her mom and hometown and headed to college where she runs into the handsome Cale Davis. Cale is a part of a group on campus called The Brotherhood, in which you have to be born a member to join. While Cale has made it his mission to help Jenna settle into campus life, she has no idea what he is really looking for. He is friendly one minute and mysterious the next. When Cale has another member Ryan help her out, she finds herself growing close to him and soon Ryan and Jenna have become best friends. But both of them begin to feel more than friendship for one another, and that wasn't part of Cale's plan. Suddenly Jenna finds herself in the middle of a nightmare that she doesn't know how to get out of, and she fears that she won't be able to figure out who to trust.
At first I honestly didn't know what to make of Ryan or Cale. The members of The Brotherhood were all pretty mysterious and seemed to have more going on that met the eye. I found them all interesting, and I couldn't figure out which ones were good or who Jenna should trust. I loved Ryan though. He was sweet and got along great with Jenna from the start. He was helpful and caring, and he seemed to be looking out for Jenna always. He took care of her and you could see that he was protective of her. Cale was hard to read though and while I liked him at times, I also thought that he had some shady moments. He seemed to have mood swings and personality shifts, and he went beyond protective to downright possessive at times. I always thought that Jenna should be with Ryan, even when I did like Cale. Jenna had been through a lot and had some issues, which is why I loved Ryan with her. He was patient and kind, and he didn't ever push her beyond what she could handle.
I will say that while I did enjoy this story, the beginning started off a bit rough for me. It was a bit slow and hard to get into. I thought that it was confusing at first, and I had so many questions. I couldn't figure out what was going on, and I think part of that was that we were getting introduced to so many new characters and there were a ton of things going on to set up the story. But once I got into this one, I couldn't put it down! I can't really get into what happens without ruining it, but trust me when I tell you that it gets crazy and soon you won't know who to trust or what will happen. I am so glad that I gave this one a shot, and I would highly recommend it to those looking for a unique and different romantic suspense novel. I will definitely be looking for more from Micki Fredericks in the future as I was really impressed with her writing style and story telling.

Plot: interesting. Like the gothic dark feel to it. In essence Jenna is looking to start over away from her past and become successful. She is at college and hoping to forget. She meets Cale of the brotherhood and her world is sort of now upside down, sideways and just pretty much changed overnight. Ryan is now in the picture helping her with classes, finding her way etc. suddenly Cale wishes to sponsor her and give her everything. Ryan is in love with her and struggling with things about the brotherhood and the sponsorship. Jenna likes both Cale and Ryan and overwhelmed with the sponsorship and everything. The brotherhood is dark and secretive but also dangerous. Cale is a wolf in sheep's clothing. ryan is good, bad wonderful a ball of sexy smexy and sweet and so is his brother Marcus. As the danger for Jenna increases so do the secrets of the brotherhood. Jenna likes Ryan but wants to protect him as Ryan does her. Things come to a head and wowza is it explosive.
Writing: flows nicely. some areas need more description because sometimes there is jumping from concept to concept so fast your head spins.
characters; draw you in. Cale has you like him at first but as you see his true colours you realize how dangerous and evil he is. Ryan is so sweet and protective. You love him and than you are not so happy with him because of his actions in some cases such as when trying to get over Jenna or when he is trying to save her and has her believe he is the bad guy not good. Overall Ryan is amazeballs. Jenna is a lost young woman. Her past sometimes has her panic in situations but with help she gets through it. Overall she is likeable although when she is trying to protect Ryan you wonder why why not just tell him instead of causing so much heartache.
Overall it is a interesting book with a lot of twists and turns. Sometimes the twists come quickly and you are left reeling but they are I believe meant to. The author keeps you on your toes wondering what the Brotherhood is about, why is Cale so dang strange and what is up with ryan. You have questions and answers that will make your jaw drop but the book will keep you wanting to read on and find out what is going on. A good dark gothic romance suspense.
Jenna comes from a single parent family where her Mum always chose her ever revolving door of men over Jenna, which resulted in Jenna’s upbringing being a constant stream of physical and mental abuse from the men who want Jenna’s mum but not Jenna. In high school when Jenna should have been making friends, she spent her time working so she could help provide for living expenses. When she is granted a full scholarship to attend college, she jumps at the chance to do something better with her life and not be stuck in a rut and rely on a man like her mum has always done.
On her first day, she runs into Cale Davis, a high ranking member of The Brotherhood who takes her under his wing and they become friends. She starts to fall for him and despite his impression that he wants her, he tried to keep their relationship platonic.
All the while, she has become friends with Ryan, who is a new Brotherhood member and who is in all of her classes. They become very close friends, study partners and slowly they also start to feel something towards each other but Ryan knows that nothing can ever happen as Cale has claimed her. Cale then asks if he can sponsor her and at first, Jenna is embarrassed and insulted but realises this is her chance to become something with her life.
Jenna is torn between Ryan and Cale and the resulting dramas involve murder, deceit, lies, secrets and Jenna is not sure what is really going on and what to believe. Take a ride in this mixed up world where the wealthy pray on the weak and helpless under the pretence of bettering their lives.
This is a fantastic story where nothing is at it seems and like Jenna, you don’t know who to trust and you are left battling your mind and your heart and all of your instincts are completely thrown off course.
I honestly loved all of the characters this book brought me. Ryan is just…wow, I can’t say any more. Cale gave me the creeps from the first introduction as he just seemed too preppy and something felt off. I cried for Katie and Marcus and what they had to endure. I LOVED THIS BOOK!
I was given a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review. Reviewed by Tanya.
The characters in this book are very like able. I will say this and try not to give away too much. There are some characters in this book that you will like and by the end of the book you really shouldn't like. Than there are characters in the book that you may like but you think I really don't want to like them, but you can't help but like them. And I really hope that doesn't confuse anyone, but I think if you read this book you'll understand what I mean.
Let's talk about Jenna for a moment. I really felt for Jenna from the beginning of the story. I could even relate to her a little bit on just wanting to get away from the past and having a fresh start somewhere. Not trying to knock her or anything but for everything she's been through, she's a little naive about other things.
Alright this is where it gets tricky for me because usually I would talk about the guy in a book and say how much I love him. But here's the thing with this book there's 2 main guys in this book and hopefully without giving too much away. One is not what he really seems and the other one is not what I expecting.
Chasing Jenna was an unexpected gripping tale that author Micki Fredrick takes you through. There really is a life lesson to this story and it is 'Trust your instincts' if something or someone doesn't feel right, than it probably isn't. The story had a nice flow to it and was very discriptive. The author pulled me into the story and had me giggle at times, than yelling at the characters, than crying at others.
I give this story 4.75 Stars Out of 5 and would definitely recommend it. I can't wait to see what Micki Fredrick comes up with next!!!!
