    One thought on “Chasing the Sun”

    1. ****4.5 Dazzling Stars*****(Arc kindly provided by author in exchange for an honest review ❤️)In true Nikki Mathis Thompson style this little book comes packed with pure awesomeness. She never disappoints, her characters are always so lively and completely relatable, bringing your emotions to the surface as you read yet another incredible story, I'm truly sad it was over so soon, I could read her books foreverWe met Ian in the book Resilient when he starts dating Katrine, but she later dumps [...]

    2. 3.75 StarsI'd always wondered what happened in Ian's life after Kate chose to go back to Xander. I really enjoyed the "Comeback Story" and I am happy Ian ended up with who and where he did. While I think the perspective he gained through his time spent in Austin was great for understanding what Kate went through and that her choice to leave him wasn't easy, I don't love it when my MC's spend the majority of the story sleeping with someone else, it somehow is very hard for my romantic heart to ac [...]

    3. I was given an ARC by the author and this is my true and honest review.This is Ian's story. It is a novella, but a complete, and wonderful, story. If you haven't read Rebound and Resilient, then do so before you read Chasing the Sun. And if you haven't read them, what are you waiting for? Brilliant stories!The story begins after Ian has had his heart ripped out by Katrine. He's devastated and getting the heck out of the Big D, temporarily. He hits Austin and he meets Trevia, aka Trey. Trey is a [...]

    4. I was super excited (and may have begged) to be an ARC for this little novella!! And now in less than 24hrs I've finished and am pleased to say that Nikki Mathis Thompson has done it again!! If you haven't read her other books, Rebound & Resilient you totally should!! I love these little novellas, taking a character from one of the ordinal books and letting us in deeper to get to know them! Her characters feel like people you know, they have so much depth and everything is once again laid ou [...]

    5. She's done it again!! Love Chasing the Sun!! What a great weekend read. Nikki Mathis Thompson has once again proven she is a great writer. The way she can get you intertwined in the characters is amazing. I read Rebound and was one of the many folks out there routing for Ian!! It's great that we are getting to see what happens in the supporting characters lives after the main book. Chasing the Sun made me laugh, made me cry and made me hungry for the next book!!Keep them coming!!

    6. (ARC from author for honest review)Ian Radcliffe is a good guy by his own admission. The love of his life Katrine MacNamara chose to spend forever with "cheating ass" Xander Abbott leaving Ian broken hearted. When business takes him from Dallas to Austin, Ian enjoys the quaint local scenery & comes upon the pub "Royal Muck" where he meets Trevia "Trey" Swartz a savvy bartender & Aurora "Rory" Monroe a fiery singer. Ian connects with both women and finds himself understanding with clarity [...]

    7. 4.5 Stars for this fun little romp. Keep those fingers typing Nikki Mathis Thompson, because I can't get enough of this crew (and your amazing writing, of course).I'm not going to summarize Chasing The Sun since it has been done by others, but trust me, you need to read this book. Preferably after reading Rebound and Resilient. In NMT's other books, I was not a fan of Ian. I felt he was a big puss. I'm still Team Xander, but after reading Chasing the Sun, I can say I'm quite found of Ian. I love [...]

    8. I was given an ARC by the author for an honest review so here goes. I was very happy to have had a chance to read this book. It was great getting to see the happy ending for an amazing character in this series. I definitely recommend this book since it was a perfect compliment to the original series.I was happy to see Ian get his turn. The story flowed and it was enjoyable. One of the things I like most about this author's writing is that her stories are relatable. She does this again with this [...]

    9. Did somebody say Ian Radcliffe? Give me a minute while I swoon.To me, there's nothing sexier than a tall dark hunk of a man who is a genuine nice guy, assertive in the bedroom, and *ahem* can play the guitar, which is why Ian became a book boyfriend way back in the days of Rebound and which is also why I couldn't wait to get my paws on a copy of Chasing the Sun. The story of Ian continues in Austin, a quirky Texas town, where Ian takes on a temporary assignment with his architecture firm. He qui [...]

    10. Nikki Thompson never disappoints, and Chasing the Sun is no exception. From the moment I read her first book, Rebound, Nikki became one of my favorite authors. She has since followed up Rebound with Resilient and two novellas and I couldn’t enjoy them more. Nikki knows how to write strong, intelligent, witty, smart-mouth females like no one I know. There are no “woe is me, my man broke up with me, whatever will I do” chicks in her books. Woo Hoo…yay for that! What about the men you ask, [...]

    11. 4 Pornagraphic Poetry Stars!This was my first read by this author, I must confess it was the guitar on the cover that made me give it a try, I can't resist music themed books. I discovered that there's not much music, being that Ian is a successful architect, but even a dab will do, right? I had conflicted feelings about this book. At first I sighed at the sweetness, I laughed at the funny banter, and I cried (I can't tell you). I really, really, really wanted to throw my kindle for a while. I k [...]

    12. A fast read that will leave you wanting even more of Ian. He is just OMG. I cannot get enough of him. Such a good hearted, loving, ,man. And so perfect in all the right places. I am also glad that he finally listened to his heart, that was the touching point for me, like, YESSSS, he found someone just as great as him. They will be awesome together, although I was still heart broken for him over Katrine, this little spit fire he ended up with was perfect. It's always good to have a relationship w [...]

    13. 5 plus beautiful stars***** Once again Nikki's writing pulls me in and makes me fall in love with every character. Since Rebound I've always loved Ian and his story of finding love was very well played. This was a fun read, love me some Nikki stories!!!!

    14. Review originally posted at Ramblings From This ChickChasing the Sun is a novella in Nikki Mathis Thompson's Rebound series. This novella is Ian's story and can easily be read as a standalone. I had never read any of the other books in this series and had no problem getting into this story. I really enjoyed Ian's story, and I definitely want to go back and read the others after this one though.After having his heart broken when the girl he loved chose someone else, Ian Radcliffe heads out of tow [...]

    15. Five Stars for Ian, well actually for this ARC I so humbly had the pleasure of receiving from the awesome NMT! Ian, Ian, Ianhe is a pure swoon worthy book boyfriend! He is sincere, he is real, he is such a catch! In Nikki's other books he is a picture perfect guy friend and a great lover who gets left behind with a broken heart from our beloved Katrine in Rebound and Resilient, but he gets his own fun and steamy story in Chasing The Sun, and I enjoyed every minute of it! Nikki has an amazing way [...]

    16. 4.5 Fantastic Stars Review by Natasha GentileSo this book is a little special for me. This author is a little special for me as well. She is actually the first author I reached out to on Facebook to say ‘I loved your book Rebound, but you broke my heart”. She was also the first author to give me an ARC for Resilient. It was in these books that we first meet Ian Radcliffe. He totally got the short end of the stick and I demanded, ok demanded is a big word, but I harassed her and basically tol [...]

    18. When readers last saw Ian Radcliffe at the end of Resilient, he was heartbroken and angry; he thought he did everything right to get Katrine in the end, and she still ended up going back to Xander. Destroyed by her rejection, Ian gets the perfect opportunity for distance when his design is chosen for a building in Austin, so he packs up and heads out, hoping that time and space will help him to heal and move on. Ian never thought in a million years that he would grow to understand the conflict K [...]

    19. This was my first experience reading a Nikki Mathis Thompson Book and I can honestly say I really enjoyed it! I was hooked with the sexy heartbroken architect. While this is the second in the series I had absolute no trouble reading it without reading the first but I will say after reading this novella I would be very interested in reading more in this series.“She cocked one hip to the side just ever so slightly and crossed her arms in front of her. He didn’t notice the heart shape her ample [...]

    20. Nikki, Nikki, you out did yourself AGAIN. You truly know how to give us what we want with your books. You have managed to give us a bit of every character in your stories. I fallen in love with Xander, Charlie, Katrine, Maddie and Now Ian!!!! You go girl.Many of us Rebound/Resilient fans fell in love with Xander and Katrine love story. However, in Resilient we all were lost for words with the whole "Hammock" scene in Mexico. Didn't think Ian had it in him to be so out of the box. At that time I [...]

    21. Having just lost the girl he loves, and feeling like nice guys finish last, Ian Radcliffe wants to get the heck out of Dodge, or, well, Dallas. With his guitar and his dog, Ruby, in tow, Ian heads for Austin for a 3-month work project, with hopes that a change of scenery will heal his broken heart. Once settled in his new life, Ian finds plenty to fill his time, and two different women to help him with his heart.Likeable characters, an engaging storyline, and a friends-to-lovers romance are gene [...]

    22. I wasn't a big fan of Ian's in Resilent because I didn't want Katrine with him. So I wasn't so sure how I'd like his story! I did go into this book with an open mind! And boy am I glad! I love Ian! He really came into his own in this book and loved the direction that Nikki took him on.I wasn't feeling Rory and I told Nikki this! I told her I'm not so sure about her BUT I love Ian with Trey! I see he likes Rory because in a way she isn't someone who does the relationship thing, according to Trey. [...]

    23. Heartbroken after his relationship with Katrina is over in such a harsh way, Ian decides to take a job and relocates to Austin hoping to find healing there. Then on his first night there he meets Trey who becomes a friend who borders on the more than line clearly. Then comes Rory the singer who calls to him with that whole free spirited vibe. Then comes the guilt because he has developed feelings for both women. He has kept Trey in that friend zone, but delves into an affair with Rory. Thing is [...]

    24. Nikki is an amazing author. She sets the stage and gets you up and then you are up all night reading!! You will not want this story to end. I don't want the series to end. I am looking forward to MANY MORE Books by her. This is what I have to say about Ian more please, more. The way she describes Ian makes you gomm. and ohhhhhhd oh my!! And last all, more, please!! :)

    25. **I received this book as an ARC, in exchange for an honest review**Loved Ian and was not real sure how this would end but happy with how it did.
