This is my first Katee Robert's book. I've checked her out on Facebook and she writes some pretty hot things and she has a great sense of humor. I love the premise of this book. You have two people who each have some issues but manage to find a way to resolve those issues together.
Ian is a great guy who is chasing after the one woman who understands him and actually, cheesy as it sounds, completes him. He literally knocks Roxanne off her feet. Roxanne's issue is sorta like your classic romance novel issue. She doesn't believe in love and thinks it only leads to heartbreak. I mean hey, what's a girl to do? It's not like she has a good track record with the whole " I love you" thing. Her mother doesn't help things, with her own three failed marriages. Hey, how about maybe you just weren't with the one person you were meant to spend the rest of your life with.
While I'm on the topic of mothers. Oh my gosh... Poor Ian and Ellie. Their mom is miserable and just wants to make everyone as miserable as she is. I swear, she made me want to jump through the book and let her know what her place actually was.
I loved this story because Ian and Roxanne bring out the best in each other. They truly make the other a better person and own and stand up to their issues. Oh and yeah, of course the sex which is HOT isn't bad either.
I'm really excited that I discovered a new author to read and I can't wait to find out what else she has in store for us.

“Although this is book 2 in this series, this is the first book I’ve read by this author. After reading it, I was extremely interested in reading Book 1 but was able to enjoy it as a stand-alone book. The book opens with Ian home from the military and at a “welcome home” party thrown by his family. Ian doesn’t really want to be there because he’s having a little trouble adjusting and getting back into the swing of life as a civilian. When it all gets to be too much, he runs out for some fresh air and bumps into Roxanne. Unbeknownst to him, Roxanne is his sister’s best friend. Roxanne is also unaware of who Ian is because she’s never seen what her friend Elle’s brother looks like. They both go back to the club to another level and hang out. They are both attracted & find that they click. Ian also finds himself soothed by Roxanne’s presence. After getting physical right away, they begin to become emotionally intimate as well. This is something that is difficult for them both in different ways, but especially Roxanne. Roxanne has major trust/commitment issues due to some bad past relationships and from observing her mother’s experiences. This book was very sexy & I look forward to reading more books from this author.”Miranda O wrote this review Thursday, April 25, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“REVIEW: CHASING MRS. RIGHT is the second storyline in Katee Roberts’ Come Undone contemporary romance series. This particular story focuses on former military soldier Ian Walser and party planner Roxanne who accidently meet at Ian’s welcome home party thrown by Ian’s sister Elle, whom we first met in Wrong Bed, Right Guy. The problem-Ian and Roxanne-do not know each other’s identity and pursue a hot and torrid one-night stand that will either see the couple heading into a relationship or into a downward spiral of lies and betrayal. When Elle finally realizes with whom she spent the night, she knows she has made a huge error in judgment. But when her best friend Elle begs Roxanne to help Ian through his emotional turmoil, Roxanne knows that she will probably lose her heart to the emotionally fragile man.
Chasing Mrs. Right takes the reader on a journey of healing and discovery. Returning from a tour of Afghanistan, Ian is having difficulty re-entering into society-nightmares, flashbacks, feelings of dread and an overwhelming need to run are only the tip of the ice-berg with the things that Ian must deal. But enter-Roxanne-the feisty party planner and his sister’s BFF who pulls no punches as she defends and protects the wounded warrior until he is able to confront his demons full on.
The reader is pulled in as Ian must deal with an overbearing and confrontational mother; a future brother-in-law he believes is connected to the mob; a sister whom he loves and wants to protect; and the woman with whom he is falling in love, but a woman who believes love belongs in fairy tales and romance novels. And one wrong move or word could send Ian spiraling out of control. Roxanne is the other half to his soul, but the reality of his situation forces Ian to push everyone away when he needs them the most.
CHASING MRS. RIGHT is an emotional look at the struggles of one man re-entering society after experiencing the horrors of war and the death of his friends. Katee Roberts writes with passion, romance, sorrow and pain and, in the end we witness how the love of one woman helps Ian begin a journey of healing on his long road to emotional and personal recovery. The storyline has moments of humor, sorrow and romance, as well as both physical and sexual intimacy between our two leading characters.
