review of Chasing Sam by krystal Shannan
Samantha Demakis doesn’t want a mate right now. She wants to finish her degree and work as a doctor in third world countries. Her birth-rite and family obligations to her status as the first daughter of a noble family beg to differ. In fact, even her wolf seems to be against her. When a chance encounter reveals the man who might just be a perfect fit, will she run? Or will she fight?
Chase Michaels has been alone for seventy-five years. He’s fought in Vietnam, the Persian Gulf, and Afghanistan in the US Army. Somewhat resigned to never finding his true mate, he is shocked when his wolf reacts so strongly to a woman he runs into in the airport. Unprepared for the politics and snobbery of the noble families, Chase finds himself fighting in a different type of war —a war for the heart of a woman he knows should be his.
A lot of things are chasing Sam, but who or what will catch her in the end?
This is not your everyday shifter story. Sam and Chase both heading home to visit with family, run into each other at the airport, when they touch sparks fly and their wolves know they met their mate...but life isn't that easy. Sam is from a noble bloodline and is expected by her 25 birthday to be hunted by potential suitors who best fit into the status of the Demakis family whoever catches Sam and marks her is who she'll be mated to for life. Sam wants to marry her mate not be unhappy like her mother, she wants a life not to be involved in politics of her bloodline. but in order for Sam and Chase to be together and mate, Chase has to join in the hunt ...like this story a lot , a different take on the typical shifter stories. Only unsure part that wasn't quit explained was when Chase's sister and Sam used to be friends what happened between them and more background on her family in general ...but over all a great read !4 stars
