Being Chase by J.J. Scotts

 Being Chase The Chase Series (Book One)Wouldn’t it be nice to be a celebrity?

Liam Collins is desperate for a job. Forced to jump to the big city, he can’t believe his luck when he suddenly gets an offer from a prestigious publishing company. Absolutely ecstatic, Liam doesn’t even bother reading the details. But on his first day of work, he isn’t ushered to a quaint cubicle. Instead, he’s brought to a classy high-rise and told that he’s been hired to be the face of the best-selling author, Chase Preston.

When Liam first meets Chase, he’s so captivated by the mysterious man’s imposing figure and deep-set eyes. Maybe Liam really did get lucky.

All Liam has to do is go to fan meetings and award events as a stand-in for Chase. It actually doesn’t sound bad, but Liam soon realizes that being with Chase is harder than it appears. Despite the challenges of Chase’s arrogant attitude, Liam puts up with it. What he finds difficult to put up with is Chase’s sexy body and brilliant blue eyes.

Even worse, the feeling may be mutual
This book intrigued me because the plot seemed really original.  Liam is in desperate need of a job.  He’s just left home and moved to the big city, and when a job offer comes along that’s too good to be true, he can’t pass it up.  He is told after he takes the job that he is to be the public face of the famous author Chase Preston.  All he has to do is go to book signings, interviews and such as Chase.
Of course, it’s not as easy as he thinks it will be.  The real Chase is arrogant and rude, and is very obviously attracted to Liam.  Will he give in to his employer’s sexual advances?
The best part of this book is Liam.  He’s adorable and witty and just a great character.  He also really helps to
offset the doucheness of Chase.  Also, the sexual tension between Chase and Liam is awesome.  It really leaves you wanting more for them, despite the clear warning signs!
Also, just as I thought, the plot of this book was really interesting, as was the way it is written. The storyline is kind of intertwined with Chase’s book as Liam reads it.  I liked that, but it did tend to interrupt the flow of the story that was going on with Chase and Liam.  And I was impatient to get to more of Chase and Liam.
This is a short read and a very promising start to a new series.  I’d say even if you don’t always read m/m books, this is a book that almost anyone can enjoy.  4 stars.
