How far would you go to reignite the spark you once had?

Two years later, Trace and Olivia are as much in love as they’ve always been. But the spark they once had for life is waning and Trace is determined that they find it again. His solution? A road trip. But he doesn’t tell Olivia the real reason they’re heading north.

Olivia is happy to go on a road trip and have more adventures with Trace. Besides, she needs a distraction from the soap opera her life has become. With college over, this is the perfect opportunity to chase down the carefree girl she once was.

But life isn’t a fairytale and you can only escape reality for so long.

Love, laughs, and a hidden agenda.

That’s the name of the game when you’re Chasing Olivia.

If you thought Finding Olivia was good, then you haven't seen anything yet! Chasing Olivia takes you on a road trip you won't want to end! Hot characters, amazing plot, perfect ending, I cannot recommend this book and series enough! I completely adored the first book in this series, so I couldn't believe it when the author asked me if I would like to beta read this book! I was seriously happy about getting my Trace fix early ;) Beta reading this book was so awesome! The author is such an amazing writer! This book was pretty different to the first book in the series, but it was all about seeing the characters develop after what they had been through in the first book! I freaking loved it! The plot was so cute and so hot! I loved the whole idea of it with the road trip and the real reason for the road trip! There were also some seriously sad points in the plot as well that sort of make you value life that little bit more! The plot for me went at the perfect pace and there were some twists and turns to keep it interesting and to keep me wanting to read on, even though I would have read on regardless lol! The plot was a little bit different to what I was expecting, but I do like when that happens with a book and I loved that the plot of this book had me gripped, even though it wasn't very climatic! The plot wasn't supposed to be climatic though because it was about the two main characters relationship! The characters were again amazing! Olivia was again the main female character and she had grown so much since the first book! She was more at ease with herself and that was pretty amazing to see! I still connected with her brilliantly as well! Olivia in this book got to see the real value of family and that was all because of Trace! He showed her just how much family means and to treasure it while it's there! I just overall loved Olivia and her personality in this book and the first book! Trace in this book was so funny! He was still so sarcastic and so full of himself that it makes me love him even more! Plus, he still wore plaid! I mean, hello! I want a guy like Trace! Seriously! Trace also continued to push Olivia outside her comfort zone in this book, which in turn, made her grow more confident! I just adored Trace and his hotness! Trace and Olivia easily became one of my favourite book couples after reading Finding Olivia, but after reading them in this book, it sealed the deal for them being in my top five favourite book couples! They are such an amazing couple and I've loved every second of reading their story! The ending of this book was perfect! Absolutely perfect! I actually spend half an hour just sitting there crying it was that perfect lol! I'm really sad that this is the end of Trace and Olivia's story, but another character in this book, Trent, will be getting his own book and Trace and Olivia are hopefully going to make appearances in that one, so I'm excited to see how Trent's book is going to go! The cover for this book is absolutely stunning! It suits the first book's cover perfectly as well! I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it! Big thank you to Micalea for an allowing me to beta read Chasing Olivia and to Stephanie's Book Reports for having me on the Blog Tour!
