Chasing Him by Kennedy Fox Review



Chasing Him is a full-length 110k+ words standalone novel that’s filled with angst, sexual tension, and plenty of forbidden temptation! Let Kennedy Fox take you to the South for a hot, captivating adventure that’ll surely leave your Kindles on fire!

John Bishop isn’t your typical single dad.
Reserved, impatient, and utterly clueless.

Running the family’s bed and breakfast has many perks. Working long hours, picking up after the guests, and hearing couples going at it all night long aren’t any of them. Hooking up with girls who come to the ranch for horseback riding lessons? Best perk of them all.

That is until a baby shows up at his doorstep with a note claiming it’s his. Growing up on a ranch was anything but easy, but raising a newborn is proving to be the hardest task he’ll ever tackle. Leaving the bachelor life behind, his only priority is to hire a nanny who can teach him a thing or two about parenting — except he doesn’t anticipate her being gorgeous and quirky with an unhealthy football obsession.

Mila Carmichael has many talents — making balloon animals, creating origami art, and remaining in the friend zone. Often seen as one of the guys, she’s struck out more times than a rookie baseball player.

Seeking a new adventure, she flies to Texas to visit family and is offered a position she can’t refuse. Helping out a new dad should come easy to her, considering her past experience, but what she doesn’t anticipate is him being an attractive Southern temptation.

But that’s only the beginning.

While growing close to his family and falling madly in love with the baby girl who’s stealing their hearts, things are bound to get complicated. Everyone knows not to mix business with pleasure. That means no late movie nights, no stolen glances, and definitely no kissing behind closed doors. Too bad the universe has other plans — one that’ll threaten taking away the main thing that binds them together.


The last thing John ever expected was for a tiny baby girl to land on his doorstep and a note that says she is his. Having lived the bachelor life he is utterly clueless about being a single dad and knows he needs a nanny to help him learn and raise his baby girl. Enter Mila. Yes she is the perfect person to help John and his new addition but little did he expect to start to fall for his beautiful and quirky young woman. Mixing business and pleasure is a big no no….but there is little the two of them can do when the fates want you to be together!

“I promise to give you the best life I can,” I tell her. All eyes are on me, but there’s no judgment. Instead, the bunch of them are smiling at me. It takes everything I have not to break down as the realization sets in that this is really happening. Holy shit! I’m a dad.”

I LOVED LOVED LOVED this story. Ahh so many emotions, so many great character and such a captivating plot. I was hooked from the blurb…baby turning up at the doorstep to Dad who didn’t even know he was a dad?? Sold! I think these types of stories are so beautiful because it isn’t just about the love story between the main characters…it’s the love a parent has for a child, even if they didn’t know they were one. It’s about watching a father and daughter become a family and all the laughter, sadness and drama that comes with it!

“I can no longer be that guy who acts recklessly without consequences. Maize’s my life now, and that old lifestyle is long gone.”

What can I say about John….well wasn’t he just the most swoon-worthy man out there! Although living a slightly bachelor lifestyle, even before Maize he was still responsible, hardworking and kind but as soon as Maize comes into his life and he promises to give her a beautiful life straight away….sigh….I just melted into a puddle of goo at how sweet he was. Later on we see his romantic and sexy side and also get introduced to his stubborn side. Considering all that he was going through you couldn’t blame him and he has officially landed on the top of my favourite book boyfriends list! Mila was just another great character…she’s clever, loving, kind, fun and loves her football…again what’s not to love! The way she is with both Maize and John you, could tell she belonged in that family.

“Being with Mila like this is nothing like I could’ve ever imagined. It’s more than just a hook up and each kiss and touch we exchange brings truth to that. The attraction has been undeniable from the beginning, but what we share is much more than that.”

This was such a beautifully written story; from the very beginning with ‘the letter’ that nearly had me in tears, to the way all the Bishops family fell in love with Maize and came together to help, the growing slow burn relationship between John and Mila, and finally, to the trials and tribulations of being a new Dad to a little baby….I honestly couldn’t want anymore from this story. Not at one point did I get bored with this story, there was always something happening that had me devouring the pages.
