How far would you go to reignite the spark you once had?

Two years later, Trace and Olivia are as much in love as they’ve always been. But the spark they once had for life is waning and Trace is determined that they find it again. His solution? A road trip. But he doesn’t tell Olivia the real reason they’re heading north.

Olivia is happy to go on a road trip and have more adventures with Trace. Besides, she needs a distraction from the soap opera her life has become. With college over, this is the perfect opportunity to chase down the carefree girl she once was. But life isn’t a fairytale and you can only escape reality for so long.

Love, laughs, and a hidden agenda.

That’s the name of the game when you’re Chasing Olivia.


“Chasing Olivia” was the perfect conclusion to Trace + Olivia’s story! I honestly loved everything about it, and couldn’t have asked for a better ending. It was even better than the first installment – which can sometimes be hard to find – and I was completely addicted from start to finish. I loved going on this adventurous journey with Trace and Olivia, and I fell even more in love with them along the way. I loved their playful, sweet, and humorous banter with each other, and the road trip concept for this book was absolutely perfect. I will admit there were a few sad moments, but everything else in the book made up for it. I loved the flow of the book and thought the author’s writing style was amazing. It was wonderful to see many familiar faces from the first installment, and it was awesome to find out what happened with some of them. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Trace and Olivia’s incredibly romantic story, and I truly couldn’t have been happier with the outcome. It was simply perfection. I am totally and positively in love with the Trace + Olivia series, and I cannot wait to read the rest of it! Thank you, Micalea! :)
