    Just when I thought Twyla Turner could never write a couple who would rival Sloan and Lexi from her bestselling Damaged Souls series here she comes with Chase and Daylen and I am still in my feelsCatching Day and Chasing Day are a sprawling heartbreaking poignant romantic drama that spans a whopping 30 years and this is what I absolutely love about this story The reader witnesses these two individuals literally and figuratively as they grow from children to mature adults We experience their triumphs and tragedies as well as their fortunes and mishaps You too will be an emotional wreck Chase McCoy seems to have it all on the outside cute golden haired popular even in grade school but what everyone doesn’t know is he’s not a very happy person because looks are certainly deceiving One day on the school bus this mini knight in shining armor comes to the rescue of a cute lil chubby bunny named Daylen Daniels when she is mercilessly bullied by a couple of mean girls That incident was not only their introduction to one another but the beginning of the rest of their lives as best friendsand Love love love how we see the progression of Chase and Day as she’s affectionately known as they discover new things about themselves and each other Best friends become lovers but can lovers still remain best friends? Any and everything happens to these two and it’s one big mash up of emotion If you are a fan of Tethered by LD Davis then you will surely become one of ChasingCatching Day Definitely click worthy so definitely click it upARC provided in exchange for review

    Oh boy There is so much romantic saga goodness going on in the CHASING DAY series Turner presents a love between two people that will reaffirm your belief in love that's meant to be Daylen and Chase's story begins when they are young Chase defends Day against bullying which sparks a friendship that slowly grows and then burns into a relationship that eventually defines them both The relationship between Chase and Day is emotionally scalding to them both This is a coming of age and maturity story so angst abounds but it's believable angst Turner provides obstacles frustrations and mistakes that makes their story engrossing As their relationship develops we find that Chase's family dynamic is far from the perfect image that others see Chase has his own hell to survive while trying to live up to what other people expect from him Day steps up and provides just as much comfort and protection for Chase as he does for her against the pettiness and meanness of some of their classmates The biggest difference between them is that Day is aware of what her real feelings for Chase are early on I wanted to give Chase a little shake to wake him up so that he could see what is right in front of him; but his obtuseness is believable from a very young man Both Chase and Day make regrettable choices that end up being life changing mistakes However Day makes a choice that is selfish is one of my deal breaker actions and skirts the line of unforgivable Especially when her decision isn't justifiable However somehow Turner still made me want a happily ever after for them How Turner was able to make me still want forgiveness for Daylen I am still not sure but I did If you are looking for a full circle romance then the CHASING DAY series is an all around winner This one is not just for fans of New Adult romances This is a wonderful and emotionally engaging story of hard fought for love that never completely fades Turner shows that there can be happiness found through acceptance forgiveness and faith that someone can love you with all of your perceived and real imperfections I'm adding this to my favorite reads list and I am positive that I will be revisiting this story againI received a copy in exchange for an honest reviewYou can find from me at •♥•Monlatable Book Reviews•♥•

    I have read most of this authors books and I read this one on Kindle UnlimitedThis is Daylen and Chase's story I found this story to be an emotional roller coaster of a ride and totally heartbreaking Both Daylen and Chase made mistakes in the relationship and they missed opportunities to grasp at their happiness because they allowed life to get in the way However I thought that some of the choices that Chase made where typical male mistakes but his were crueller because he made them with the one person he knew that that would hurt Daylen to the max I found that hard goingThe story has a happy ending but I found the story to so gruelling that I did not walk away with the usual high that I would normally get from reading a story by this author The story is well written and will absolutely draw you in their world Worth the read

    The following is a summary and review of The Chasing Day series by Twyla TurnerSummaryIn the first book Chasing Day  we're introduced to Chase McCoy a young boy from a troubled home who forges a bond with Day; the shy cello playing girl next door But when their friendship evolves into romance things get complicated In the concluding book Catching Day youth begets adulthood as their friendship continues on a rockier path Mistakes are made feelings are hurt and precious time is lost to the pitfalls of distance and prideful posturingReviewBook one of this series was an enjoyable read I could see the growth in Turner's writing from her debut work in the Struck series For that I was relieved because although I own her scarred series I have been hesitant to delve into her books again With that stated the second book in this series proved to be less impressive One of the strengths in Chasing Day was Turner's building of the heroine and heroes relationship from friends to lovers The pacing was steady allowing us to get to know these characters their inner workings flaws and attributes and how those things shape the bond between them Where things started to take a turn was toward the end when it seemed Turner hit some kind of wall and decided to rush the major conflict that caused a separation between the two lovers Instead of taking her time to explore it in a thoughtful way it's presented in a whirlwind of a chapter that leads into the second and concluding book in the series  To me this set the tone of the finale and did so in a fractured wayWhere we should see growth between two characters coming into their adulthood and learning from their mistakes instead we see immaturity and actions that make little to no sense An example of this can be found in Chase's actions once he gets his life back on track He makes a decision that is completely out of the realm of reality Given his experiences and what we know about him up until this point his actions make minus zero sense Toward the end of the first book the same can be said for Day Completely illogical decisions that do no mesh with the characters we've come to know I know this is fiction but even fantasy must stay true not only to the characters as the author presents them but to the basic tenets of logic Without it you're just writing nonsense Another weak point that can be found throughout the series but most egregiously in the concluding book Catching Day is Day's incessant stutteringSince the author does not describe her as having a speech impediment this only proved to make Day come off as extremely immature In the second book she is supposed to be in her twenties to late thirties and she's still stuttering like a fool in simple conversations Makes no sense and comes off as completely silly I find this to be a common thread in what I've read of Twyla Turner's works adult women with low self esteem who are completely lacking maturity and self awareness This is why the first book is stronger than the second The young love angle was written better and seems to be the comfortable place for Turner to write in When the characters became adults things fell apart because the foundation of their adult selves was never written strongly to begin with Even in times of strife there should have been some tangible growth between these two Instead Turner relied on worn out tropes to create melodramatic conflict that didn't add substance to the story she seemed to be building from the beginningLast the intimate scenes weren't as plentiful and outrageous as in the Struck series thank the universe There were some eye rolling moments but overall Turner got the temperature close to right I especially loved the Cello love scene Interesting enough it did not take place between the two main characters Good writing all the sameStill based on the first book the series had potential and would have been far stronger if these issues and some technical faux pas were tweakedTechnically speakingThe book was readable and well written to a point But the tells of lacking a professional copy and substantive edit were apparent in this series There were plentiful typos and one maddening issue of Turner's use of repetitive phrases throughout the book particularly when describing Day's physical attributes Turner repeatedly mentioned Day's chocolate brown eyes creamy butterscotch thighs and rosy cheeks She also kept reminding us how chubby the character was At one point I thought Okay okay I get it damn Can we move on now? How many times do we need to be reminded what she looks like? We know It's like a hammer to the head and that don't feel good Still these are forgivable book sinsFinal WordsI could write and get very nit picky but I think I've given you enough to consider whether you want to take a chance on this series or not Overall I enjoyed it and I will continue to drop in to see where Twyla goes with her future works In this genre it's usually the characters that make or break the story for me For the most part these were solid though I give the edge to Chase Even when he made illogical choices his character remained consistent and he was someone I really wanted to win I've already stated the drawbacks to the series and unfortunately one of the main ones is the heroine Day She leaves the story uneven in many ways but it has enough legs to keep you moving steadily to the end without wanting to throw your Kindle at the wall My final verdictMy rating for Catching Day An okay but not as good as the first time 39My rating for the Chasing Day series A young love grows up 40

    Chasing Day is about two children who have bonded over life circumstances Chase is a 10 year old boy who rescues this chubby 9 year old Daylen from bullies who pick on her because she is overweight Their opening story was so sweet that it gave me a toothache and made me think back to my first crush I smiled and giggled like a besotted school girl when I read how their relationship formed Chase realized from a young age that outside appearances may not necessarily match the inside and vice versa and he realized that Daylen was a girl worth keeping as a friend Chase and his mom were abused by his father and during one of these incidents he hides at a tree house that connects their homes and when Daylen comforts him with her presence and willingness to be there for him it solidifies their relationship for life They grow up and Chase is always protecting Daylen from the bullies while she is his rock in times of trouble During their teenage years Chase finally felt what Day felt from the get go was that he was in love with his best friend There are trials and tribulations and my heart hurt with the heartache that these two put each other through but that is something that I love That I can feel their passion their ache their love their eternal bond Chase has been an butt and through his own actions he lost the most important person in his life he let her walk out of the door shaking my head mmm mmm mmm Catching Day is a continuation of the Catching Day series and it picks up right where Chasing Day left off Best friends separated hurt by other and going on about their respective lives apart I didn't like it but I was still engrossed wondering how can these two possibly make it back to one another after everything that has happened and still rooting for them as a couple There are some characters where you wished they would just break up because you're sick of them? This couple was NOT it I loved Day and Chase and their eternal confounded love My eyes watered throughout this book either in happiness or being hurt This is a series that is definitely worth the read if you love emotional upheaval and star crossed lovers I received this book as an ARC in exchange for an honest review

    This has to be hands down the best series that Twyla has put out yet What makes this so great is the time span and how she includes things that most of us 80 90's babies can say yup I remember that The chemistry that is between the two characters is so real not reaching for instalove like some books do I felt the emotions as they were going through them and it tugged at my heart strings a few times This series shows just how much she has grown as a writer Loved Chasing Day

  7. Tracey Tracey says:

    I wanted to rate this 4 stars because of the redundancy in describing the Hero's green fleck eyes and the Heroine's plump rosy cheeks I was like if she states this one time I'm going to scream The 4 rating went out the window when this story brought tears to my eyes good tears This a very good book I felt like I was a part of Chase and Daylen lives What a great book to start the New Year

    I always go into the novels with this trope with some trepidation If you are going to follow a couple from childhood to adulthood the author has to make a decision how to allow the relationship to progress Too often the story mires itself in unnecessary drama with so many angsty hair wrenching twists and make ups and break ups that I end up being terminally exasperated by the couple and the author for creating tortuous blocks that often times do nothing but drag out the story for no good reasonBut every once in awhile I come across one where the progression works For the most part this book is in the latter category Sure Day and Chase have their ups and downs and make ups and break ups but what I liked about it is that the author allowed their bedrock of a friendship to stay intact and that to me felt like a great grounding force in the relationship so than all the romantic plot blocks I do think the first book was much stronger in character story and tone It also ended on a nice spot Yeah I hate cliffhanger stories that have to finish out in another or three volumes because frankly it feels like a cash grab and multi volume stories should be just that multi volume stories But at least author broke the story in a natural spotThe second volume only worked because it finally allowed the story to end on an HEA I liked the idea of Chase and Day of moving on with other people temporarily but I wish the storytelling was sophisticated and nuanced enough not to resort to vilifying the the other partners It happens a lot in romance and I always wonder why We want the hero and heroine together so a temporary love interest who isn't an outright asshole isn't going to be a threat especially not if you've created and strong root worthy couple which I think the author did here And in the case of Chase and Day I think in the span of a 30 year story it would have been nice for both of them to have at least one other positive relationship outside of each other especially if an important part of the story is to break them up and move them out of each other's orbit for awhileI also said of course at the view spoiler pregnancy secret baby hide spoiler
