Review - Betraying Chase by Donica Covey
Title: Betraying Chase
Author: Donica Covey
Publisher: Champagne Books
Betraying Chase Coming Soon From Champagne Books
Rating: You Want To Read

Chase Willet and his teams of cops want Rivera. They want him dead or alive, but off street so he can’t sell any more drugs. They also want to stop all the murders being committed by Rivera and his gang. Unfortunately they have no evidence to take him down with or have they?
Chase is in love with Brandy, she is the love of his life and he want to spend the rest of his life with her. She in turn loves him, but Brandy is definitely not the person Chase thinks she is. She has been ordered to kill chase by Rivera to get him off his back. Can she actually kill the man she loves?
This is a really gritty, violent police drama, which is full of twist and turns. There are a lot of violent scenes to begin with, which are definitely necessary to the story line. The plot is definitely gripping and intense and you are hoping that the good people will win out in the end.
I did enjoy this story, I couldn’t help but feel sorry for the main characters as they really were pulled through the mill and suffered some horrific injuries. Though you can see that what they suffered only made their love stronger.
The characters were strong and well written; the plot was very realistic and believable.
I found just a couple of areas, which seemed to let it down. Firstly during a rather violent scene, Chase got shot in both knees and then quickly managed to bring a man to the floor by wrapping his legs around his neck. Unfortunately, I found this part a little far fetched, as I would imagine the character to be in too much pain to carry out this action.
Secondly, I found the story to be a rolling out a little quick, there was no let up from the violence at the beginning and it all just happened and was over too quickly. The main drama of the story was over in the first section of the book, and then a long time was spent dealing with Brandy’s recovery, which I felt dragged on.
The story ends on a cliffhanger, so it is quite evident that a follow up will occur.
