Chase (Resisting Love #1) by Chantal Fernando and Dawn Martens

Synopsis from goodreads:

Moving in with a guy you only met once? Stupid.
But for student Layla Crawford, this was reality.
Chase Jackson is a renowned playboy and self professed commitment phobe, that is until he meets Layla.
Blinded by his intensity to have her, Chase will stop at nothing to make her his.
With a jealous ex and old conquests repeatedly making appearances, Chase' s skeletons come out of the closet one by one, each one pushing Layla further and further away.
Layla is determined to keep her distance. Chase now has to convince the only woman he has ever wanted that he is worth the gamble.

Ariana's review:

4 Awesome Stars!

Really liked this book!!!! 3 hot brothers? YES PLEASE!!! It was so difficult to decide who was my book boyfriend as I was reading, because it kept changing every few chapters! Chantal and Dawn did a wonderful job making you love each character in their own way. 

The story started out with Layla meeting James when she is looking for a place to rent to live in while she attends University. It just so happens that James answers the door of the house she goes to look at... in just his boxers! Plus one for James for being a hottie from the start! Messy blonde hair, blue eyes, pierced lip, nice body? Who wouldn't be drawn to him from the beginning?!?! And just when you think Layla and James have instant chemistry- enter Kade (who sounds just as yummy as James). Layla hits it off with the two guys right from the beginning. Both are sweet, playful, and fun... and did I mention HOT? Layla and Nikki (her best friend) decide to go to a club one night... and this is where Layla meets Chase. Black hair, blue eyes, tattoos (yummy!) and a dimple. *swoon* 
Layla then agrees to spend the night with Chase, just to sleep. When she wakes up and walks out of his room, she in for quite a shock!!!! 

As the story progresses you learn that all 3 of these male characters have quite the playboy reputation. Yet they show Layla nothing but respect, as if she was family. 
Throughout the story I definitely had a Love-Hate-Love relationship with Chase. He was sweet and sexy, but at the same time he was EXTREMELY jealous and over-protective. One minute I wanted to throw my arms around him, and the next I wanted to punch him in the face! Layla on the other hand was such an awesome female character! There really wasn't one thing that I disliked about her. She was strong willed, independent, kind hearted, and quite quirky. She also didn't just lay back and take shit from anyone. There were a few parts in the story that actually had me giggling too! 

As her and Chase start to get closer, girls from his past keep popping up which causes nothing but trouble. Can Layla learn to trust Chase, and give him her heart? Can she move forward, knowing what his past is? Can Chase give up the playboy lifestyle that he lived for all these years so that he can hold onto the one girl who has been able to capture his heart? And just when you think you have their story all figured out BAM you get hit with one hell of a shocker that I personally never saw coming! 

" He consumes me. Like a magnet, I'm drawn to him. I can't help myself. He is my drug. My Passion..."

"But I would love to have kids with Layla. I would love to build a family with her, marry her. I would take that chance for her. I would do anything for her."
