Chasing McCree by J.C. Isabella

Goodreads description:

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.

Mary's Review:

I was a little unsure about this book when @JennNun recommended it to me.  But, Jenn has never stirred me wrong before, so I bought it.  I was afraid that it was going to be a cheesy book because I am not really into "cowboys" a whole lot.  But I WAS WRONG!

It was very good!  Chase is just a "good-ole" boy from Montana but goes to live with his mother in Florida.  One night when he was out with his horse (I Know Right!) he saw Briar, a perfect cheerleader type, drunk and in serious need of help.

Chase was there for her when she needed him.  Her friends only cared about labels of clothes and their status in the school.  Briar's family does not really pay a lot of attention to her unless it helps them out.  Chase is the opposite, his family and friends in Montana are very close and he counts on them like they count on him.

On thing leads to another (and it is great to see their relationship bloom) then Briar is on her way to Montana with Chase.  It is there that Briar really finds herself and grows up beyond the labels and status of her family.

There are some twist and turns throughout the book which makes this book very interesting.  I would recommended to everyone.
