From the bestselling author of Never Enough, a novel about two young lovers who will stop at nothing to succeed. Chaser is set in the gritty, urban world of "wreck-chasing," where even ex-cons can earn doctors' salaries, as long as they have a truck, a police scanner, and the heart of a lion. Distraught after her boyfriend dumps her over her cell phone, Leah crashes her car and ends up in the hospital. The car is towed by M.P., the head of the Five Brothers' Towing Co., the largest towing business in Philadelphia. She soon meets his son, Nasir--he's nowhere near as ambitious as his father but Leah knows that with the right guidance and the right woman he can be so much more. They quickly become lovers and soon business partners. She helps him discover his inner hustler and he shows her the way to independence. Together they work every angle and scheme of the wreck-chasing business, regardless of the law, until they find themselves at the top. But they've angered many on their way up and there are many who want to see them fall. Hard. As they say, be careful what you wish for... Smart, steamy, and filled with jaw-dropping plot twists, Chaser is exactly what Miasha's legions of fans have been waiting for.
