Title: Chasing McCree
Author: J.C. Isabella
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.
I actually came across this book while browsing Amazon. This is the first book I have read by this author. I both loved and & questioned my love for this book. Yeah, I know, “how is that possible?” Well, let me just tell you.
For the most part, this was an awesome story. The beginning was just a little slow for me, but once the story picked up, it was very hard to put down!
Here you have Chase. Swoon worthy, mysterious, fun loving cowboy Chase. Living with his mother and her new husband, he finds himself in a new school where unless you have tons of money, you just do not fit in. Too bad they don’t know his little secret.
Insert Briar stage left. One of the said rich people, cheerleader, jock boyfriend and all around girl that most girls wish they were in high school. So why does Chase find her wandering through the park at night, scratched, bloody and drunk?
While I loved reading the story of these two, there were just some things that left me with questions. For instance, what sane grandmother lies to her her granddaughters parents about letting her go to a ranch with a boy they hardly even know? Some parts of this story were a bit rushed, while others were either talked about in passing or brought up once with no lead up and that was that.
The emotion portrayed while reading this story really pulls at you. Briar and Chase seem to form a bond that many of us wish we had. Up until 6 years ago, I didn’t believe there could be a “person” for everyone. You know what kind of person I mean. The one where with just ONE FEELING, you know that something is wrong, even if you get that feeling when you are 1000 miles away from them. To watch that kind of relationship unfold between these two was amazing.
With all that said, this was a super cute read!
