Review: The Chase by Vanessa Fewings

The Chase (The ICON Trilogy, #1)

The Chase by Vanessa Fewings reminds me of The Thomas Crown Affair, one of my old time favorite movies. It’s sexy and it’s hot. It’s got action and suspense. It’s romantic and it’s funny, and the thrill of the chase for Icon is simply incredible.

The Chase isn’t just another “romance” story. It’s an erotic thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat, I kid you not. The chemistry between Tobias and Zara is off the charts. Their banter is upbeat. As a couple, they draw the reader into their world.

Zara is young but not stupid. I love how she stands up for herself and lets Tobias have it when she thinks he’s swindled her out of her most precious, priceless possessions.

Never before had I read a hero like Tobias (if you know me, you know I read a lot and have been reading for years). I think the whole inventor things suits him perfectly. That infamous tattoo he’s got and its meaning ties in everything nicely.

Tobias is a bad guy for most, but he really isn’t. All throughout the book, I kept wondering why he’d go to such lengths for art until he explains it. The bad boy has a heart bigger than some and I can totally understand Zara’s struggle in reconciling his reasons with what’s right and wrong in addition to how she feels about him.

The Chase by Vanessa Fewings is one of those books I want to tell everyone I know they must read. As I’m writing this, I’m wondering where Vanessa Fewings has been all my life and why is it that only now do I get to read her.

Will she risk it all for a priceless desire?

A rising star in one of London's top art investigation firms, Zara Leighton's talent for seeing deep into paintings is in her blood. She's chosen to help track down Icon, an enigmatic international art thief whose heists are methodical, daring, baffling. To Zara the case is maddening—bordering on an obsession.

She finds distraction in the chiseled form of top-shelf client Tobias Wilder, a magnetic American billionaire who demands her expertise, her discretion—and her secrecy. Wilder doesn't ask questions. He gives orders. His gaze alone ignites her deepest fantasies. And his touch…

The sudden whirl of exclusive exhibitions and decadent parties that Wilder introduces her to is a potent aphrodisiac. But surrender soon becomes tinged with suspicion. Is Zara's tryst with Wilder the real thing…or just a convincing forgery?
