Summary (cr: goodreads)
College drop-out, Roxy Cumberland, moved to New York with dreams of becoming an actress, but her dwindling bank account is quickly putting the kibosh on that fantasy. To make some quick cash, she signs up to perform singing telegrams. Her first customer is a gorgeous, cocky Manhattan trust-funder if she ever laid eyes on one. And what could be more humiliating than singing an ode to his junk, courtesy of his last one night stand? Maybe the fact that she’s dressed in a giant, pink bunny costume...  
 After a night out to celebrate winning his last case, lawyer Louis McNally II isn’t prepared for the pounding in his head or the rabbit serenading him from the front door. But the sassy wit and sexy voice of the girl behind the mask intrigues him, and one look at her stunning face—followed by a mind-blowing kiss against his doorjamb—leaves Louis wanting more.

Roxy doesn’t need a spoiled rich boy who’s had everything in life handed to him on a Tiffany platter. But there’s more to Louis than his sexy surface and he’s determined to make Roxy see it...even if it means chasing her all over NYC.
My Review: (also in goodreads)

This is the first book I've read from Tessa Bailey and it centers around an aspiring actress and an ivy league lawyer. Roxy and Louis first meet when she does a singing telegram for him by a one night stand about his manliness. Yep, that made me laugh out loud. The chase (hence, the title) comes about because of their strong magnetic pull towards each other (no surprises there). Although there were some cliche scenes involving them, I would concur that Louis is swoon worthy..not because of his looks (well, could be) but because of his passion to help anyone pro bono even though he could make big bucks. He has the heart and everyone around him knows about it. Plus, he gets well with his two sisters. O course one of the cliche events of this genre is that Roxy, the female protagonist is smexily attractive....they always are.

Till the next read...
