Chasing McCree by J.C. Isabella (Review)

Genre: Contemporary Romance (Once again.) ;)
Number of Pages: Unknown (ebook)
For ages 12+

"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" -Goodreads 

I bought almost 4 books to take with me onto my trip with Allie! Yes, all were contemporary romance, go figure. ;) And this happens to be one of those books! 

Something that's really great about this book is that there are two points of view in this book. One is in the guy, Chase's view, and the other is in the girl, Briar's, point of view. You get to be inside the head of both of the character's. Which means no confusion on who's feeling what! 

You would think since Briar is one of those girls that has it all, she would be a total snob. Luckily, she's quite the opposite. You get to see her progress into someone who really doesn't care what other people think about her. I loved her personality and I loved her will power. I loved, apparently. ;) 

Oh my gravy. Chase McCree. That boy is definitely made of swoon. I don't usually go for the country boys who would choose riding a horse instead of driving a car, but Chase changed my mind. He's sweet, and caring, and oh, just read the book to find out how fantabulous the boy is. Also, he is quite the charmer. He stole my heart when he "rescued" Briar when he found her drunk in the park. He's also one of those boys who has good values and knows how to treat a lady. ;) Always a plus in my book. He and Briar are far from the image of a "perfect" couple. Considering one is a popular cheerleader who is quite wealthy and the other is a country boy who doesn't quite fit in and which later we find out he is quite wealthy himself. But to the reader (or just me) they were perfect for each other in their own quirky ways.

The ending was absolutely, positively, adorable. You can't help but smile once you turn that last page. Though, I wish we could have had a little more added to the ending just because I didn't want it to end. But, all good stories must come to an end, unfortunately.

This book is another one of those sweet reads that sweeps you off your feet. The romance is cute, and not too heavy, the characters are a breath of fresh air, and the ending had me sighing in content. 5 out of 5 diva crowns for this lovely summer read!

Have a fantabulous week!
