Chase Rivers Character Profile
Hair: Dirty blonde J
Chase has an MBA from Georgetown with a minor in marketing. He’s a graphic artist and wants to work in advertising. He was raised by his loving, but very eccentric grandmother, who I can’t wait for you to meet. She makes me laugh so hard. He is surrounded by an amazing group of friends, but he wants more. He wants to fall in love and be loved in return. He wants to reenact the famous kiss in the rain scene from The Notebook. He wants the guy he can cuddle up next to in bed while he reads. He wants to be the little spoon and fall asleep each night in his lover’s arms.
Chase is matchmaker extraordinaire for his friends, but all finds for himself is Mr. Wrong. In this book, we follow along the bumpy path as he finds himself Chasing Mr. Wright.
Justin Hartley is a very close match to the image I have of Chase in my mind. He has those sexy brown eyes and dark blonde, or dirty blonde hair. I didn’t have these images in mind before I started typing the book. I simply knew I wanted a blondish haired guy with brown eyes. It’s a pretty rare combination, but super sexy.
Below are the first few paragraphs of chapter one. Keep in mind that this is my unedited rough draft and might be altered in the final draft.
I've always told people to trust their gut; go with their instincts. So why didn't I follow my own advice, you ask? I was lonely and horny.
I met Devon Bellows while tending bar at Bottoms Up. He was a great mix of sexy and sweet with a heaping side of flirty. My lonely heart revved up every time he came in. It took him months to convince me to go out with him, because I had a suspicion he was involved in a relationship. It wasn't anything obvious like a tan line on his ring finger; it was more subtle like the randomness of his visits to the bar, as if they coincided with his lover being out of town.
Don’t think I didn't share my observations with Devon, because I did. He was adamant that he wasn't in a relationship and his visits coincided with his traveling for work, not a phantom lover. So, I finally agreed to go on a date with him, even though I wasn't convinced.
Again, you ask why I didn’t listen to my gut, follow my instincts? I already told you that I was lonely and horny, and I was, but there's so much more to the story. Buckle your seatbelts, because it was a very bumpy ride.
back next Wednesday with bachelor number two, Grayson Wright. Picture a combination of Ian Somerhalder and
Superman. Yum, right?
