Chasing McCree by J.C. Isabella Blog Tour Review & Giveaway

Chasing McCree by J.C. Isabella
Release Date: April 14, 2012
Publisher: J.C. Isabelle; 194 pages

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 wanted to read this book because I feel in love with the blurb! This isn't a paranormal story, just a normal, YA story. It is nice to read books that could have actually happened to someone ;) I love the idea of a popular cheerleader falling for a laid back cowboy. Opposites always attract and that plays big in this story. However the more you read, the more you realize that Chase and Briar aren't really that far apart from each other, you know in the middle of this story, they were meant to be.

Chase is a lonely kid, who moved away from his home to try and make his mother, who he never saw his whole life, happy. He moves from his ranch in Montana to live with his mom and step dad in Florida. Right away you can tell Chase feels out of place and is trying his best to make his mom happy, but you know he is dying inside. He meets Briar in the weirdest place, on the high school football field, while she is stumbling drunk, all banged up. Right away I love their interaction. You gt a sense from Chase right away, that is is the type of guy that will never hurt you. His concern for Briar was genuine and real. As for Briar, you could tell she didn't like the life that she was living and she took to Chase instantly, even if she was trying not to.

The story continues and they friendship blossoms and when Briar decides to move to Montana with Chase for the summer, you just know she isn't ever going back to Florida. When they FINALLY kissed, I felt like I was Briar and I was finally letting go of everything and giving in to the one thing I truly wanted, Chase McCree. Thinking about it now still gives me chills. I love this story for how it all plays out, and it isn't your typical, fall in love, heart break, then fall in love again story. The love here is real and it is put to the test, but not in the ways you may think. This story is an amazing read, and if you want a good ole love story, this is it.

My only little issue was I wanted certain things to be more R rated. It wasn't enough for me to not rate this book a 5 out of 5, but there could have been a little extra something something ;) Amazing book, please check it out! You will not be sorry!

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.
