Jillian Miller likes her job working in the front office for the Seattle Sharks, but lately being surrounded by a constant parade of perfection only seems to make her own imperfections all the more obvious. She needs a change, which takes her into foreign territory: the Sharks' workout facility after hours. The last thing she expects is a hot, grumbly god among men to be there as witness.
Star linebacker Seth Taylor has had a bad day—well, a series of them recently. When he hits the Sharks' gym to work out his frustration, he's startled to find someone there—and even more surprised that it's Jillian, the team owner's administrative assistant. When he learns of her mission to revamp her lifestyle, he finds himself volunteering to help. Something about Jillian's beautiful smile and quick wit makes him want to stick around. She may not be like the swimsuit models he usually has on his arm, but the more time Seth spends with her, the harder he falls.
And as Jillian discovers that the new her is about so much more than she sees in the mirror, can she discover that happiness and love are oh-so-much better than perfect?
So What Did I Think Of Chasing Jillian by Julie Brannagh?
Such a sweet and nice romance with a little sizzling moments in there. I found Seth super sweet and charming, a good guy with his life in order who made me smile. Jillian was really nice and down to earth, strong smart woman who had overcome the challenges of her past. I thought the made a really cute couple.
The conflict that Jillian and Seth dealt with, body image, commitment, fame and opposites life styles was really relatable and what kept me reading.
My issue with the story was that it didn’t grab and hold my complete attention as much as I wanted it too. I would have liked for more intensity and passion that would have really hooked me in more. Overall I ended up really liking Chasing Jillian by Julie Brannagh.
