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.


My Review:
Wow! Just wow. Not only was I swept away from page one, but I never wanted to put it down either. Chasing McCree was funny, sweet, and *swoon* worthy. JC Isabella made me wish I had a cowboy to love. 

It's late when Chase comes across a girl, a cheerleader, bleeding and complaining of a headache. She is barely coherent and he is set on making sure she gets home okay. Once she is convinced he is only worried about her safety does she accepts his offer to take her home only to realize she doesn't have her keys. Now what will he do with her?

I loved the two main characters, Chase and Briar. Chase is a cowboy with only pure intentions. He is sweet, funny and down to earth. He has money, but doesn't like to show or talk about it and he doesn't flaunt what he has. Briar is the preppy little cheerleader who has had everything handed to her and goes along with what her friends want. Her parents don't know her, let alone know where she is and who she's with until she comes home and they ask questions.

There was nothing I didn't like about this book. It was well written, entertaining, funny, and left me wanting more. I loved that the point of view switches between Chase and Briar. There is so much chemistry between them and seeing how each of them felt about the other made me *swoon* even more. Most everything was realistic. I've met a few cowboys and Chase fit the description. There were some spur of the moment choices that weren't completely believable, but those choices were made by two teenagers in love. If I were to walk across a cowboy like Chase, I would jump in his arms an never look back, so I can't take those choices and hold them against them.

Overall, this was a very enjoyable read. I stayed up all night and loved every page. I would highly recommend this book if you want a lighthearted, quick, romantic read.
