Title: Chasing Red
Author: Isabelle Ronin
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Publication date: September 18, 2017
Chasing Red is a heart winning romance genre novel written by a Canadian author, Isabelle Ronin who has undoubtedly and wonderfully done justice with her debut. The story has already been phenomenal on Wattpad and it was then no less than a miracle when it was finally released as paperback this year. The novel is based upon two characters, Caleb Lockhart and Veronica Strafford.
Caleb is a rich guy endowed with everything in his life anyone can think of with his eye-catching looks and perfect shape. Casual in his nature and brandishing a playboy image, he loses his heart to Veronica whom he tags as “Red” all over the story. Veronica, on the other hand, is an orphan girl with tough childhood and reserved attitude. Due to all the hard times she had had, she is always skeptical about the world.
Apart from this, the story revolves around two of their friends, Car and Cameron. What’s so special about the story? It’s a fun and love sort of story with a perfect blend of sugar and spices added in it. Not stopping myself to boasting, Caleb is smoky hot while Veronica is sizzling sexy. Caleb is ice and Veronica is fire. Being a female, I was totally drooling over the character of Lockhart. Clearly, he is a heart locker (pun intended).
The cover page tagline says “She was fire. I wanted her to burn me”. Ronin is awesome with her characterization as well as dialogue. She has a knack for turning her literature into such relatable work you’d actually see yourself in the situation. And you might actually find yourself teary-eyed and adoring the character of Veronica. The story is not all roses, it is about the impacts of aftermath of past betrayal and how difficult this world can seem.
To be honest, I have read the book twice and thrice and still counting. Either in happiness or sorrow, or a light read, Chasing Red is the must pick for me. The author has also published its sequel named “Always Red” and I’m going to pick it soon.
The book is unputdownable for a bibliophile and I suggest to read it for sure. In a nutshell, Chasing Red is all love and roses and some tough times with some hot pancakes. Okay, before I reveal more of its content, I must stop and let the reader savor its ingredients by themselves.
My rating: 5/5
