Briar Thompson had it all. The right clothes, the right friends, the right car. Being popular was all that mattered. Her parents were rich and treated like royalty throughout the community. She thought her senior year of high school was going perfectly, until the night her drink was spiked at a party by one of her so called friends.
That was the night she met Chase McCree.
Chase wanted to go back to Montana. To the ranch and the wild, wide blue sky that went on forever. He wanted nothing to do with flashy cars or spoiled rich kids. But he found himself head over boots for the quirky cheerleader who turned her back on her social status. She befriended him when no one else would.
Shunned and hurt by the people who were once her friends, Briar flees with Chase to his family ranch in Montana. There she discovers another world, and apart of herself she never knew.
The cowboy wasn’t like anyone she’d ever met. The cheerleader wasn’t like anyone he’d ever met. Apart their lives didn’t seem to make sense, but together, they were chasing forever.
5 OF 5 COWBOYS
Chasing McCree is one of the best books I have read this year as far as romance goes. From the moment I started reading it I could not put it down. I am so glad I am a part of this blog tour hosted by YA Bound! I am going to try and do this review without spoilers in it.
Chase McCree is in Florida staying with his mother trying to give the city life a try. The only thing is Chase is not used to the city. He is a country boy through and through. Lord I love me some cowboys and country boys. I swear there is something in their blood that makes them polite and loyal to the ones they love. Chase decides that he would give his mother a shot and move up to Florida to spend time with her.
The only thing is he hates Florida because there is nothing to do in Florida but go shopping and hang out with friends. Not interested in any of that Chase decides he would rather gouge his eyes out instead of living here in Florida. That is until one day he is out riding his horse Ash and he stumbles upon a drunk cheerleader. Chase being raised with southern manners can't leave her there in the park all alone and drunk. SO he brings her home and takes care of her. Chase is not sure if they can be friends but he hopes they can be.
Briar is an only child who is spoiled rotten. She has had everything handed to her and she is oblivious to reality. That is until she goes to a party at her friends house where she learns some things about her so called friend and boyfriend. She leaves the party drunk and someone is chasing her and she runs for her life. She ends up running to the school soccer field where she meets Chase. She is drunk but yet she knows she can rely on Chase and trust him not to hurt her or take advantage of her.
The two become friends and decide to spend time together. But what is Briar to do when she has these self absorbed friends? Chase is a down to earth guy who wants nothing more than to return home to his cattle and true family. What will Chase do once he gets to know Briar? Will he return home and forget about the girl that brings sunshine into his life? Or will Briar ditch him for her friends? Come along for the greatest teenage love story ever!
I'm J.C. Isabella, and I love to write. I've been writing for about ten years now. Mostly it was just for fun, for me. But my friends liked my work, so I decided to self publish. I hope you enjoy the rest of my site, and the books I have written.
The reason I chose to write romance, is because I love a happy ending. In YA there are so many lessons to be learned, so many firsts to be had. Why not write about first kisses, first crushes, or trying to explain to your father you were bitten by your boyfriend, who happens to be a werewolf?
One thing I will always promise in my books is a happy ending. I've always hated getting to the end of a really great novel, and feeling let down because it didn't end the way I thought it should. So about ten years ago, I decided to write a book. I remember it was about these kids who hijack a boat to find buried treasure in Mexico....
Needless to say, my writing has come a long way since my teen years, and I know I have room to improve, but I feel guilty having these books sitting in my computer, with no one to read them. So I'm putting them out for the world to see!
I try not to take myself too seriously. I'm not an editor, nor am I a total wiz when it comes to grammar or language. I try my darndest though, and I hope to give people an enjoyable read that is nice a break from reality.
I put a lot of work into what I do, and I appreciate people reading my work. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
