Chase The Sun by R.J. Scott & Meredith Russell
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
Six years ago, Adam broke Scott’s heart, but now he’s back in Scott’s life and Scott is rightly suspicious.
Adam says he wants closure, and that he wants to say sorry. Can Scott trust the man who had spent three of the last six years in prison?
Is it a case of second chances? Or will history repeat itself?

In Chase the Sun, Scott Antonelli is about to get the shock of his life. Six years ago, Adam Ross broke his heart and it was the trigger that set Scott off travelling around the world. For the last few years he has worked at Sapphire Cay with Dylan. On a simple supply run to Marsh Harbour, he is left reeling, as he comes face to face with his first love. Can he trust Adam this time round?
Adam Ross was an idiot. Looking for quick and easy cash, he got himself mixed up in the wrong crowd and paid the price – three years in prison and he lost the one person who had ever meant anything to him – Scott. Adam has done his best, tried to turn his life around and is in the Bahamas looking for a second chance. Finding Scott was the easy part. Getting him to trust him again, could be harder than he ever imagined.
So what did I think?
This book was sweet and a nice addition to the series. I think there is something appealing about the characters, the setting and the nice glimpse of the characters from the past books. Although I would have actually liked to have seen a bit more of the other characters!
This is a story about two men who had broken up years ago as a result of some really bad life choices. I liked Adam, who had got himself caught up in trouble and served his time. It was easy to feel a lot of sympathy for him as he seemed so hard on himself. Scott was also easy to like as he learnt to trust again.
However this book seemed too short and over too quickly. It was a bit like skimming the surface of the relationship with not enough depth. Forgiveness came too quickly and easily although it was still believable.
Some nice sweet ending…“What are you thinking about?” Adam teased. Scott smiled. “You,” he began quietly. “Always you.”
