Family dynamics though interfere as the [...]

    4. This was not a good read for me. To be fair, the reason for that is probably because it was too short to resolve the issues presented. I disliked EVERYONE in this book except for Chase. Sam was a very very weak woman. Yeah, I get that she didn't want to leave her family, BUT.her parents were despicable people. Her sisters showed a few sparks of support, interspersed with brattiness, selfishness and meanness. The three men who participated in the hunt behaved like violent criminals. The ending wa [...]

    7. What to say about this wonderful book? When I read, I enjoy losing myself in the atmosphere, finding that I can "see" what is being played out before me on the page. This book and this talented author have that just ability.I found that I needed to read more and more. This was a book that I could not put down. With each chapter, a little more peeled back and revealed. The characters grow and develop. To me they felt like real people; like people I could know, not some contrived character created [...]

    8. I loved this book! Krystal gets all aspects in her characters. The evil mother. The bully's, The boyfriend, the protector and the damsel in distress. Her writing is so smooth and I couldn't put it down. I'm glad that this was not an insanely large story, because then I didn't have to worry about not being able to finish it before bed. When I am this into a book I will usually stay up until I finish and the morning comes quicker than we think!Sam is a noble and the oldest daughter. She is 25 now [...]

    9. An amazing start to a new series that is action packed, fun, romantic and manages to both satisfy while it leaves you wanting much more.

Any fan of the paranormal romance genre will fall in love with Chasing Sam again and again!What’s a gal to do when she has her life all planned out, perfectly mapped when suddenly out [...]

    10. This is the first book I have read by Krystal Shannan, but it is definitely not the last. I have also downloaded her free book Pool of Souls (Book #1), and will be purchasing the second book in the Pool of Souls series. Krystal is an amazing writer who is very descriptive in her work. She makes you feel as if you are there in the story.Chase and Samantha are great characters. Both are wolves but come from very different backgrounds. Chase is in the military and Sam comes from a noble home and is [...]

    11. "Chasing Sam" by Krystal Shannan came with high recommendations from a new literary friend and I was curious what her word was worth, so I dug into this paranormal romance. I was pleasantly reassured by the quality of the writing.The slightly spoilt 25 year old heroine Sam comes from a noble were wolf / shape shifter(?) family and is meant to be mated to whom her family chooses for her. However, before her return home she meets Chase, a handsome soldier from a lesser wolf family.Their chemistry [...]

    12. I really love paranormal romance and when I got this book to read I was not disappointed and totally hooked!! I fell in love with Chase and Sam who proved the true mates belong together no matter what. Great beginning to a new series!!

    13. LOVED this book! Would never have guessed the plot in a million yearsa unique shifter story! More review to come soon!

    15. Krystal Shannan is very talented, she can bring the adventure of a story to life on the page making you feel almost transported into the book as if you are watching it happen from the side lines. Sam is the oldest daughter of one of the most noble families, she turned twenty-five while she was away at school studying to be a Doctor. When she comes home from Christmas break she runs into the one person that she didn't want to run into just yet. Her mate. She's not ready for a mate, she wants to b [...]

    17. It’s been a while since I read a shifter romance. I received this novella as a freebie, and thought why not. Ms. Shannan quickly pulled me into the Vegas Mates world by introducing me to the Demakis family. Samantha Demakis is very independent and wants to choose her own mate. Sam and Chase desperately want to explore this newfound connection they seem to have, but her parents have other plans in mind for her…one that includes an old family tradition.Chasing Sam is definitely on the short an [...]

    18. I could have liked this book with the exception of the human side of the shifter having internal dialogue with the animal side. In this caseThe wolf. Both main characters did this. This distracted throughout the entire book. I started skipping those parts and then quickly grew tired of the whole mate run plot. I was very disappointed in this book. My version actually has 2 stories. The second is about a bear shifter. I love bear shifters. I won't be reading this one because agin, I have a seriou [...]

    19. I wasn't totally keen on this story. Every time the human part of them started to talk to the wolf part it all got a bit silly. I didn't mind the characters. Wolves get uppity and cheeky like the mother, but we don't really get an answer to their behavior. Which annoyed me a bit. The sex scene was rushed and more clinical than sexy. It has potential with the mate hunt, but the over all concept was so rushed I felt detached from the plot the whole time. The writing as a whole was solid I just did [...]

    20. This is the first book I've read from Krystal Shannan but it sure isn't going to be the last! I enjoyed this little book it was a classic Romero and Juliet setting. The heroines family is very old school, the hero's family is much more down to earth. I read this in one sitting. It had just gotten to the good part and boom it was over, blah! It was a let down. We never get to see either families reactions and the set up was there for another half of the book.

    21. Shorts should really include a warning at the beginning so they don't come to what feels like an abrupt end if you're expecting a full length book. Truthfully whether I'd known this was a short it even if it had been a full length book I don't think I'd have enjoyed it anymore. The hero seemed ok, very noble, though like everything else about the short it wasn't really developed. The heroine came off as much younger than she was. There was giggling and wailing involved. I wanted her to be this b [...]

    22. A great readThe connecting they felt at the airport. Samantha was home for Christmas holiday. Run ran into Chase at the airport but she knew that her parents wouldn't let them be together. Because she was royalty in Las Vegas and he was nothing. Now she found a way to be together but would it work. Read this great book to found out

    23. The book blurb summarizes this story accurately so I’ll just dive in to my review. I really enjoyed this story. Forget about “inner goddesses” and give me an inner wolf instead!I liked Sam off and on throughout the story. She had many moments where she acted tough and like the grown woman she was at heart. But when push came to shove against her overbearing parents, she’d cower pretty quickly. On the one hand I want to say that the pack mentality and hierarchy played a major role when it [...]

    24. I am not a werewolf fan, I tend to not really understand what is going on when I read books like this, but once again the author did a wonderful job educating a novice like me with her writing. While I still couldn’t claim to be a werewolf fan, I can say I would read more of her books about them.The story plot is solid and was interesting to follow. Both Chase and Sam are very strong characters who are willing to fight for what they believe in and what is right. I adore her sisters and how all [...]

    25. 3.5 Stars aka 3.5 *winks*An intriguing read by Krystal Shannan. I grabbed this as a freebie on and after hearing more about the author I wanted to read it more. Samantha "Sam" Damakis is coming home for the Holidays. Taking a break from school to see her family and just relax before her next semester. She had her 25th birthday earlier that year and was avoiding them like the plague. Her family was from a prestige line of wolf shifters and had their traditions that she wanted nothing to do with. [...]

    26. This is a short story that introduces us to Krystal Shannan's Vegas Mates SeriesSamantha Demakis (Sam) as she is flying home for Christmas break, She has put off coming home as she is now of "mating" age, and wants to become a Doctor. Her Parents have other plans for her home coming, and are hell bet on forcing her to mate if she wants to or not. Sam meets Chase in the airport when he gives her back her jacket that someone stole. There is a instant connection, that their wolves won't let them ig [...]

    27. Most werewolf novels are similar in a few ideas used, but this novel had a few new things added into the mix that made it a tad different; though, in the end, it is a still a werewolf story that joins the ranks of other stories that I just love. The characters involved were interesting to read. Sam, the main female character, has family troubles that revolve around the fact that her parents are just plain cruel to her. While reading, I just couldn't help but hope that she would just finally run [...]

    28. Samantha Demakis is a premed student that comes home to visit her family over Christmas break. At the airport she runs into Chase Michaels, a local who just returned from a tour in Afghanistan. When they meet they both recognize the other as their mate but Sam is part of a noble family so there is a line waiting for her hand. Sam doesn’t want to be mated so soon and tires to talk her parents out of the mate hunt they have planed but to no avail. I really enjoyed this story. The main characters [...]

    29. An interesting world was created in this novella however some of the interactions of the characters was really odd to me. 1. Samantha's mother was really weird. Why'd she hate Samantha so much? She was really out of control and I can't figure out what her motivation was. Is she just a bitch to be a bitch? Are there some deeper motivations? I don't get it. 2. Samantha and Chase are fated mates, that's cool. But Chase doesn't come off like other fated mate males I've read before. Comparatively he [...]
