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 said it before, and I will say it again. 2012 is the year of great contemporaries! Chasing McCree is such a cute story. If you are looking for something to make you smile, this is it. This is my second JC Isabella book, and I really liked both of them! I am so happy to have found another great contemporary author.

Chase is just a good ole boy. He has great manners and is sweet and loyal. He is just really genuine. And right away I was smitten. What I loved most about Chasing McCree is that it is such a nice and sweet love story between a boy and a girl. It is not angsty, there is no love triangle. It is just Chase and Briar’s story. And I loved that about it.

I really liked that so much of the story takes place at the ranch. It made me want to take a trip into the country. And Briar is such a good sport with everything. And so mature for her age. You won’t be able to help falling in love with them and the setting. I do wish that the story was a little bit longer and fleshed out in areas, but the pacing and length didn’t really take away from the story- I just liked it so much I wanted more.

There is also a little bit of mystery rolled into the story, which was a nice bonus. If you are in the mood for a cute, sweet romance that is nice and fluffy- I would definitely try Chasing McCree. I think you will really enjoy it.

About the Author
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.

    2012 really is the year of great contemporaries. I’ve read so many amazing contemps this year, and it’s exciting because it’s my favourite genre! This one sounds really cute, I can’t wait to read it! 🙂
