Review: Chasing McCree by JC Isabella

Author: JC Isabella
Publisher: JC Isabella Books
Number of Pages: 182

"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 had this book on my TBR shelf since the day I joined Goodreads, and I am so glad I finally picked it up because it was SO good. I didn't really know what to expect and I kind of went into it blind since I hadn't heard too much about it. When I was writing this post and had to write the publisher I realized that this was an independent author, and I think that just makes the book ten times better because it was beyond good.

The characters were so lovable throughout this book, and you could feel their emotions flying all over the place throughout this book. That made it very relatable and I didn't want to put the book down at all. 

The plot was really good, but I felt like it moved really fast. I don't want to spoil anything, but I felt like the author was just trying to cram a long story into 200 pages or less. I feel like I would have enjoyed it much more had it been longer and more thought out in terms of Briar and Chase's relationship.

Overall, I really enjoyed the book, and I would definitely recommend it. This is one independent author that needs more attention! Anyone who enjoys YA contemporaries should definitely pick this book up.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars!
