    1. 3.5 stars. Review posted August 14, 2014Hunter, in his mid-thirties, is a security contractor and weary of his job. While on the way to his remote cabin, Hunter saves Christian’s ass for the second time within a short period of time and offers him help. Help to get clean and a bit of menial work at his cabin to compensate for board and lodge. The weeks pass, Christian gets back in shape and both of them feel attracted to one another. However, they don’t act on their feelings right off the ba [...]


    2. When a book makes me feel stupid from the start, it's not a good sign.There is a very important experiment from the 50s in which the investigators were looking for certain demonstrations but chance wanted them to find other facts that would change the perspective of psychology and certain diseases. They put an electrode on the nuccleus accumbens on a rat, and every time the rat pushed a lever, it was stimulated with electrical shocks. The rat liked pushing the lever. The rat loved it. It preferr [...]


    3. This story took me to plot directions that I didn't see coming, added with characters with emotional baggage, and messy relationship progress. In other words, this was MY kind of book and I loved every minute of it.It wasn't perfect, I did have complaints, but in the general sense, this was the kind of story that I just ate up completely. See, I’m always in favor for stories with complicated relationships. It doesn't have to be in the form of being abused or suffering major trauma simply peopl [...]


    4. BR with Isabel and Eva Thanks to my friends!:)Chasing the Dragon… didn’t know what it meant… until a few years ago… the best definition of it is :- It starts when you have your first high, the world is peaceful, everything is perfect, you're numb, but in the best way possible. But, soon, it starts wearing off. Fast. Your mind races, you're pulled out of your dream world. You crave the drug more and more, wanting to feel the same way as you did on your first high.“Remember what you told [...]


    5. wow. I was so in love with this Kate is a brilliant writer and will still be an autobuy for me but I'm NO prude. I can forgive a TON of shit, and I'm a total angst whore. But. Christian was unforgivable. what he did was irredeemable and I thought Hunter was an idiot for going back for a second round. While I won't call it cheating, and I know Christian had his reasons, FUCKING MY SISTER IN FRONT OF ME on purpose makes you the sleaziest bastard ever. Young and dumb? Yes, Christian was definitely [...]


    6. This story begins with Hunter, who is an ex-security contractor trying to retire, playing white knight to a young gay rent-boy he sees being targeted. Hunter scoops Christian up out of harm's way and takes him along on a drive to his northern-BC cabin in the woods. Unfortunately, on arriving there, Christian informs Hunter that he's a heroin addict, and the next stretch of time is likely to be unpleasant, unless Hunter can pull off a miracle. One of the things I really liked about this book was [...]


    7. Most of the time I can separate the fact that I disagree with the decisions a character makes/the direction the author takes from the actual writing of a story. If I disagree I don't normally rate. But I can't separate that here. For a few reasons. image: One: If anything like the Ten Commandments of M/M romance exists, then this book breaks one of them. This is a MAJOR EFFING SPOILER. Consider yourself warned if you open it! (view spoiler)[ In an effort to save himself, and because Hunter is to [...]


    8. I've been re-reading Kate Sherwood's Dark Horse series as audio books and loving them so much (the narrator is awesome!) I realised it had been a while since I'd tried anything new by this author. So I grabbed Chasing the Dragon and well, basically, couldn't put it down. All my favourite tropes; hurt comfort, flawed/damaged MCs, unrequited love, second chances and a plot line that doesn't usually gel with me- special ops/mercenary thriller. It worked here because it took second place to the char [...]


    9. This book was so damn good! I think it's probably my favorite book from Kate Sherwood since Dark Horse. I love both MCs. Their stories were so interesting apart and then they're thrown together like this double whammy of goodness! Ex-military and heroin addict just sounds awesome to me. You begin the book thinking Christian has hit rock bottom and Hunter is saving him. That's just the tip of the iceberg. They give into lust and start to fall in love and then BAM. Christian breaks your heart and [...]


    10. Fabulous BRIt was the second time in my life that I've read about this metaphor Chasing Dragons But this was the first time that I truly understood it To chase the bliss of the first drug experiment An experiment that will never be achieved again, but yet, you can't stop trying to get it! To get that fire, that state of freedom that dragon! Christian is an addicted, he's still chasing the dragon and he knows that he will never find again, but he still wants it Until the day that Jack Hunter ente [...]


    11. 2.5 starsThis story is told in three parts and I feel two ways about it. HA!No, seriously, there were things I really liked and others were just confusing… I really like Christian.I know, I know… he does something in the first part of the story that many readers will take great exception to… But his struggle throughout the story-- chasing his own personal demons, NOT chasing that dragon-- is moving, and it really connected with me. He is a junkie-hooker with no one and nowhere to go. He se [...]


    12. I’ll give this 5 stars because I found it really enjoyable. It covered many themes from gfy, to sex-workers, cheating, addiction, age-gap, second chance, reunion and add to that the chase and run of military action. WOW! The characters are likable and memorable and make you worry about them, the plot is unpredictable and I loved the second chance theme portrayed in it. My heart ached for both Christain and Hunter, and how the circumstances made them hurt each other while they were in love. Wou [...]


    13. Excuse me while I squee all over this book. I think… I think this is my new favorite Kate Sherwood book. It made me so happy I don't even know where to start. Maybe this was just the right book at the right time, but it seriously managed to turn around a bad day for me. My predominant feeling during this book was joy. Complete, utter joy and thankfulness that this book exists and that I decided to read it. The blurb made me think this book would be dark and difficult, and elements of that were [...]


    14. Loved. Review to comeBR with Isabel and Barbara "r two men with very dark pasts, relying on each other might be easier said than done.""Christian stumbled backward, surprised and dazed, and Hunter followed, his lips demanding an answer to a question he hadn’t yet asked. Christian knew the answer, and he kissed it back with intensity to match Hunter’s. Yes, he kissed. Of course, yes. Then, and now, and always".“You remember what I told you? How if I was drowning and there was a boat above a [...]


    15. What was this hot mess? Christian NEVER blew up. You know gay men LOVE sleeping with the guy whose dick has been in their sister. GROSS. I could get over cheating but with my sistereven in soap operas that's like the final nail in the coffin. Hot mess. 2 stars because I liked Christian and felt bad the author fucked him up so bad. This is becoming a trend in gay romance, guys taking sloppy seconds from their sisters. Maybe girls don't mind sharing their boyfriends and all, IDK. I saw someone men [...]


    16. Kate Sherwood is one of my favourite authors and Chasing The Dragon is just as well written as every other book that she's published.But what Christian did was, in my opinion, absolutely unforgivable and although I finished the book and can appreciate the skill with which it's written I couldn't enjoy it past that point.Because my disappointment in this story was based solely on my inability to handle cheating MCs I decided the best thing to do is not rate this book.


    17. Great story. It could have went without the little mistake, but it worked for the story, so I'm not complaining too much. I'm just glad these guys finally got their happy ending.


    18. Review can be read at It's About The BookAlthough the “Dark Horse” series has been highly recommended to me many times, “Chasing the Dragon” is my first Kate Sherwood. It won’t be the last because this book was just that terrific.I love books with strong, clear writing, with complex characterization that allows the main characters to grab the reader by the mind and heart. Jack Hunter and Christian Manning did this for me. I cared. Then, I was hooked.Both men bring strong back stories t [...]


    19. This lost momentum right at the end of the story. And 1 star in the rating.I loved the first 2/3 of the book. Such angst, emotion, development between the the MCs, solid character build-up. It started with Hunter and his sudden realisation that he was attracted to an anonymous hooker he came across on a side alley one evening. I loved his ambiguity over his on and off again attraction. There was no immediate decision that he was gay or panic but rather cold analysis and then Hunter came to terms [...]


    20. I loved every minute of this.While I accept other's will find Christian's action unforgivable, I saw it as a moment of stupidity mixed up with a distorted perception of self-sacrifice due to his own low self-worth and his fear of intimacyYeah, yeah, bullshit words. But he is so young.Anyhoo, it's not my job to defend (lovely) writer's lovely writing.I went with it. Also wanted to add. This narrative didn't go in the direction I expected, so bonus points for surprising plot developments (not sayi [...]


    21. Holy crap!!! I loved every last second of this. Christian is perfect because of *and* in spite of every one of his imperfections. Absolutely one of the most human characters I've ever read. My very picky 6-star shelf just got another book shelved. eta And maybe I misread something but Christian's cheating on Hunter wasn't really what I'd call cheating. There was absolutely nothing self-serving or self-centered about what Christian did. He thought (in his own loving, albeit damaged, way) he was d [...]


    22. A solid 4 stars for the book Kate Sherwood's book always have a great meaning behind her plot. Christian and Hunter are two MC's that are on two totally opposite ends of the rainbow but some how they come together to try to stick together when the shit hits the fan and well it does. She leaves it to your imagination for the second book that I really hope she makes because there are some WHAT IF moment for me to wonder.


    23. DNF! Ughis book was a brick wall for me. I've trying to read it for 2 flippin' weeks!!! And I'm only 50% into it. I finally had to wave the white flag and move on. Just could not get interested in the storyline nor the MC's. Big disappointment for me, as I've loved everything to date that I've read by Kate Sherwood.


    24. I really liked this. While it's not perfect and there is a lot going on I just loved the relationship between Hunter and Christian and I really liked the snarky dialogue.


    25. I'll be honest and admit that this is the first book I've ever read by Kate Sherwood. It came very highly recommended and the blurb basically sucked me in. Plus, as I started reading, I couldn't help but picture Hunter as Jason Bourne. Well, as Matt Damon, playing Jason Bourne, that is. Hello? Yum. Okay, that's not the only reason Hunter reminded me of him. It was more the situation and Hunter's personality that clinched the similarities for me. And, well, let's face it. I love a good action adv [...]


    26. I know that many of us have lost faith in 5 Star ratings, but give me just a minute to make my case.Kate Sherwood has crafted something very special with this book. If you don't know what the phrase "chasing the dragon" means, it's simply the chasing of the amazing first high that many drug users experience after their first taste of hard drugs, the reasons drug users escalate.Christian Manning is a drug addict and a whore. He sells himself to buy his drugs. Jack Hunter sees one of Christian's e [...]


    27. 4.5 StarsThis book started out with a bang and I read well into the night. Both Hunter and Christian were intriguing characters, with lots of layers to uncover. Christian's struggles with drugs, Hunter being so willing to be his caretaker, the sexual tension between the men - all of this coupled with Christian's emotional unavailablity - sucked me right in. I wanted to know more about their pasts. I wanted to see them conquer their demons and it seemed after being at the cabin for a while they j [...]


    28. The Blogger Girls4.5 Stars Whoa; what a drama filled, action packed, no holds barred, knocked down, dragged out slug fest. I had no clue when I started this book that it was going to be such a roller coaster ride. Was it an action story? Yes. Was it a romance? Yes.d no, and yes. Was it everything I was expecting? No…it was much, much more. I was rode hard and hung up wet. This is not a story for you fluffy sweet lovers of pink sugar and lollipops. It is, however, an amazing story of two men wh [...]


    29. Kate Sherwood is an auto buy author for me. She has written some of my favourite book characters, and so I knew that I would enjoy the writing in this book, but was a bit afraid of the characters not appealing to me. I shouldn't have worried. This author is so talented. She took a person who wouldn't normally appeal to me, but after reaching the end of this story, I had fallen in love, not only with Hunter, who I knew I would, but Christian as well, and that was a pleasant surprise.I enjoyed the [...]


    30. This was a flawed novel but showed such glimmers of brilliance. Christian's character is extremely well written with very realistic issues of addiction. His battle with his addiction and acceptance that it'll be life-long is powerfully written. Even the anti-romance-novel thing Christian did(no spoilers here!) made sense in context of his addiction and where he was in life. BUTThe relationship between Christian and Hunter is not one for romance readers. The insta-love on Hunter's part and Christ [...]
