Vivi Renard—a blast from the past—wasn’t supposed to affect me like this. 

When I knew her ten years ago she was nothing more to me than a highly functioning brain. 

Hell, I paid her to do my homework. 

Only now … she’s drop dead gorgeous but had the nerve to turn me down for a date … several times. 

No one turns me—Prescott Beckham—down for anything. 

I’m on a mission and won’t stop until I’m firmly planted between her thighs, hearing her moan my name. 

Her plump red lips have me dreaming filthy things and acting like a kid with his first crush. 

If I can’t have her, I don’t want anyone else to either. 

What’s worse is I want to own every single bit of her. 

Except there’s a slight problem. 

Vivi can’t stand me. 

Even the old let’s be friends again thing failed. 

She tossed it back saying we were never friends to begin with.  

But I’m the king at playing ruthless games. 

So she’d better be ready to drop her thong, because Vivi is going to end up in my bed sooner … or later. 

And I’m pretty damn sure it’s going to be sooner.

Vivi rubs her hands on her thighs. She’s nervous and has been ever since I stood over the table. She seems to have more confidence in herself now than she had when I knew her but that doesn’t account for her skittishness. Back at Crestview, she had been overweight—I knew that—only I didn’t know, or maybe I didn’t pay attention, to the other girls giving her a hard time. And why should I have? I had so much going on in my head I could barely keep my own shit together. 

“So?” I prod. “Homework binder?” 

“You did a pretty good job with me. I only figured you put the other girls in the same boat. You know, with the homework stuff and all.” 

“I had you wrapped around my homework binder at Crestview. That’s your metaphor for finger.” 

It’s not a question. I’m baffled because I had no idea. Yeah, I was a flirt, but I flirted with everyone to get what was necessary. It was the only way I knew how to accomplish my goals. She needed the money and always acted like she had no interest in me whatsoever. 

“Of course. You had everyone wrapped around your finger. Well, maybe more of them were wrapped around your, um.” She points in the direction of my dick. Sexy little Vivi can’t say dick out loud. Isn’t that the cutest thing in the world? “Say it, Vivi.” 

“Say what?” 

“You know what.” I lean into her and get close to her lips. “Say it.” Her chest puffs out as she says, “Dick.” Her lovely neck flushes pink and two bright spots of fuchsia dot her cheeks. This is sweet innocence at its utmost. 

“Excellent. Now say cock.” I put a great deal of emphasis on the “c” and “k” at the end of the word. Silver gray irises turn stormy and deep creases form on her forehead. 

“Why would you want me to say that word?” 

“Because it makes you uncomfortable as hell and I’m an asshole. I like to see you squirm, Vivi.” 

“I won’t say that. It has nothing to do with truth or dare. And besides, it’s my turn.” I take a couple of good slugs of my drink, sit back, and cross my arms. “Do your worst.” 

She puts an elbow on the table and rests her cheek on her hand. “Truth or dare?” 

“Dare.” It’s impossible not to laugh at her comical expression. I curtailed her plans. 

“You can’t do that!” 

“Do what?” 

“Pick dare.” 

“I most certainly can.” 

Her head tilts back, and I can only imagine what she’s thinking. A chuckle escapes. 

“You’re a jerk,” she says. 

“So I’ve been told.” 

“Okay, then. I dare you to tell me why you loathe the man you’ve become.” She gloats at the clever way she’s twisted the game. And stupid me should’ve figured out she’d come up with something like this. Vivi was always brilliant. 

“Loathe is extreme. Let’s say I’m not particularly fond of who I am right now.” 

“Fine. Go on.” 

Now I’m the one who’s squirming. Where do I even begin? Vivi is almost a stranger to me. There’s no way I can bare my pathetic soul to her. 

“I have daddy issues.” 

“Really?” Her question is one of disbelief and she appears to be holding back a laugh. 

“Hard to believe, isn’t it?” 

“Um, yeah. Prescott Beckham, the guy with the world at his fingertips, has daddy issues? I think not. I Googled you after I ran into you that day. From all accounts I read there were no daddy issues to be found. Nada. Try again.” 

“I have a team that keeps my secrets out of the media. You wouldn’t find anything on me. But it’s true. I grew up without a mom and my father was not much of one. So, there you have it.” I give her one of my best smirks. It usually does the trick on most women. 

She leans back and tucks her chin closer to her body. “That’s it? And I’m supposed to buy that?” 

“That’s all I have for sale, Little Wolf. Sorry.” 

“You’re not a very fair player.” 

“My turn.” 

“Nope. I’m done.” She drinks another swig of her beer. 

“No, you aren’t. I’m picking for you. Truth. How many men have you fucked, Vivi? And what exactly have they done to you?” 

She shoves her arms into her coat and pushes at me to get out of the booth. But I have zero intentions of going anywhere. “Let me out, Prescott.” “Not until you answer me.” 

“That’s none of your business. How many women have you been with?” 

“Too many to count.” 

Her jaw flops open and I close her mouth with a finger under her chin. 

“You asked, Little Wolf.”



Chasing Vivi is the third book I read from A.M. Hargrove and like always, it was a wonderful reading journey. After reading the blurb, I knew that this was a story that I was going to enjoy. Don’t even get me started on the cover ... HOT!!! I had no problem imagining Prescott and his sexy ways after seeing that cover. 

Many things have happened to Vivi Renard since she left high school. Her world has been turned upside down by emotional and difficult moments. The last thing she expected was to come face-to-face with Prescott Beckham. Sexy and charismatic as always, Prescott tries to convince her to go on a date with him. She said so many times, but he never stops asking. He’s the same Prescott from high school. Mr. Popular who has ladies falling at his feet. Her physical appearance changed, but Vivi’s opinion of Prescott remains the same. He’s trying to seduce her and then he will move on to his next conquest. Until Prescott proves her wrong. Prescott not only wants passionate and unforgettable moments with her, he wants it all. Will she give him a chance? 

Vivi and Prescott were an interesting couple to follow. I have to admit that I did not like Prescott at the beginning of this story. It took me a few chapters to finally connect with him. I finally did when his walls started to crumble and he opened up about his family situation and about how important Vivi was becoming in his life. At the beginning, it was all about the sexual tension between them and he would work his magnetic charm on her. I loved how his character evolved in this story and how deeply he fell for Vivi. 

Vivi is a heroine that left me with a smile on my face. She was a joy to follow and I was cheering and sending good vibes her way. She’s been struggling since her mom passed away and to find comfort and protection in Prescott’s arms was one of the best things to happen to her. 

The chemistry between Vivi and Prescott was hot!! It was a slow burn romance, but the tension between them was explosive from the beginning. I loved the supporting cast of characters. They all had a specific role in Vivi and Prescott’s life and they added so much to this story. It’s very important for me to not only connect to the main characters, but to the supporting characters as well. The writing style was fantastic and I look forward to reading more books by A.M. Hargrove. 


I give, Chasing Vivi, 4 passionate and sexy stars!
