Chasing Dawn

There are some major flaws with this story: the dialogue between the two major characters of the story, Chase and Dawn, is mind-numbing and I felt relieved when I stopped reading. Also, since this is a fish-out-of-water tale I expected some funny moments where Dawn got use to a new world that does not have super villains threatening the city all the time but there was none. This story could have been much better if it some of this element was in it.

However, the story was not all bad. I liked the fact that Chase, the hero in the story, has psychological wounds but is still welcoming to new people who come into his life and that Dawn a was kick ass heroine who would not let anyone get the best of her.

Chase has had a crush on Dawn since he saw in her in a comic book as a teenager…so he built a statue of her. One night after putting a “magical” necklace on her statue, he leaves his comic book store and next thing we read is Dawn is coming to life. Dawn cannot understand what has happened to her world so Chase takes her home and explains it to her. First Chase and Dawn become friends and subsequently lovers but things pop-up that might separate them.

Book Blurb for Chasing Dawn

Dawn, the beautiful captain of the comic book superhero team, G-Force, comes to life one stormy night and finds herself locked inside a comic book shop in Alexandria, Virginia.

The superhero, who can manipulate the weather at will, was sculpted by the owner of the comic book shop, Chase. Chase, a handsome, ex-Army ranger who opened the shop after his tour in the Middle East ended, had always been in love with the superhero and sculpts her from clay.

When she comes to life, after he places a magical turquoise necklace around her neck, Chase offers his dream woman a place to stay with the hope that she'll never leave.

Can these two star-crossed lovers conquer the odds to fall in love in the real world?
