Sweet romance between a shy dog trainer more comfortable with her canine charges than people and a fun-loving, implusive hockey player who may need as much training as his rambunctious Newfoundland.

Cute story about Delilah, a New York dogwalker who suffer from social anxiety. She meets hockey player Jason Mitchell when she helps with his Newfounland Stanley. What follows is a sometimes sad, sometimes funny, sometimes hot story about when two opposite personalities meet, fall in love and then have to deal with those differences in a serious way. Follows the same formula as Martin's previous books and its nice that her previous characters make appearances here.

One side note I feel compelled to point out. Jason and Delilah meet on the corner of West 81st and Madison, which in Manhattan is impossible because Madison is on the East side of the city and does not cross with West 81st street. :)

Cute story. Some interaction with characters from other books in this series but easily read as a stand alone.

An okay book in a series revolving around hockey players on a team called the New York Blades.

Chasing Stanley is about a dog walker named Delilah Gould who finds it easier to socialize with dogs than people, has a set of crazy parents, and a hilarious best friend named Marcus. The male lead is Jason Mitchell who is a newly traded hockey player for the Blades, is eager to prove himself to his coach Ty Gallagher (from Martin's book Body Check), and who also has a twin brother who also plays hockey professionally but for a rival team. Delilah and Jason meet in the park when Jason can't seem to control his dog Stanley. Then as Delilah helps Jason train Stan, a relationship develops between Jason and Delilah.. but they face continuous troubles in order to stay together.

... To be honest, this was not my favorite book out of the series and not really a great one in my opinion. Neither lead character were strong enough to get me interested though I had to keep reading to see what happened! The pacing was a bit off and the continuous "problems" played out the same way over and over, making it a tad boring. I didn't really feel the spark between the two main characters and for me, that's important.

I did like the hockey action though which is why I picked up the book in the first place. Having read a few of Martin's previous books in the series, I also enjoyed the mentions of Ty, Janna, Michael Dante, Teresa, and Gemma (and their children!), but other than that, I wouldn't really recommend this book. :/
