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. Read more Read less. About the Author J. Isabella Books; 1 edition April 1, Language: Start reading Chasing McCree on your Kindle in under a minute.

What a sweet story. I think I was expecting a little bit of a fluffy story, but there was j.c.osabella bit more depth to it than I initially thought. While I had some minor issues with the plot and a few scenes, I fell in love with these characters and was rooting for them to have a happy ending.
I wasn’t sure I would like Briar going into the book. She surprised me though and I found that I really liked j.x.isabella. Briar is a very real and genuine person.
I like that she recognized that her friends were fake and that she wanted to distance herself from them. I think it takes courage to break away like that when you’re in high school. It made me sad that her parents weren’t involved in her life like they should have been.
They were so selfish.
I can’t even imagine not knowing what was happening in my child’s life. Her j.c.ieabella made up for some of that abandonment though. The grandma was a hoot. She reminded me of my grandma. Chase is one dreamy guy.

I’m not typically into the whole cowboy thing, but Chase rocked it. He is so considerate, sweet, and honest. Basically, Chase is a true gentleman in every sense of the word. He is Briar’s savior and hero in a lot of ways.
He helped her be true to herself and he showed her love. He was a swoon-worthy guy. The story developed nicely.
Although I have to say that I became more involved in the story once they left Florida. Her parents and friends bothered me. I was happy to see Briar become more at ease once they reached Montana. I liked that their relationship started out as a friendship, but developed into a lasting love. It was truly sweet. I have to say that I went back and forth on a rating for this one, but the bottom line came down to the epilogue.
I’m a big fan of the epilogue. I have this strong need to know what is going to happen later. I loved loved loved this epilogue. I won’t spoil it, but I felt like the progression of their relationship was realistic, so it was more meaningful to me. If you are a fan of swoon-worthy guys, cowboys, and sweet love stories One person found this helpful. Kate McMurry Top Contributor: Chase McCree is almost 18 and has spent his whole life on a ranch in Montana that has been in the McCree family for generations.
For the past few weeks Chase has been staying in Florida with his mother, whom he hadn’t previously seen for years. His mother abandoned Chase and his father when Chase was a very young child. She could not endure what, to her, were harsh conditions of ranch life, but she didn’t feel right taking Chase away from his father, who was a very good parent, and Chase’s birthright in Montana.
Chase’s father died a few years back, and Chase’s paternal uncle and his uncle’s wife have been his guardians ever since. His mother has belatedly tried to make a relationship with Chase, now that she is remarried to a lawyer and has a young daughter. She has asked Chase to consider living with her permanently, but Chase has only promised to try that on a temporary basis. His mother has signed him up to attend a ritzy private school, which is a huge change for Chase, because until now he has been home schooled.
Chase cannot relate to the rich, arrogant kids at the school and is living an isolated, lonely life, longing to return home to Montana. Late one night Chase is riding his horse Ash–a companion from home he could not bear to leave behind–on the football field of his school.
He runs across one of the school’s cheerleaders, a small, pretty blond who is stumbling blindly across the field, clearly drunk and disoriented. Chase’s strong, protective instincts are immediately aroused, and with great finesse, he rescues her and carries her away on his horse. After that remarkable first meeting, a friendship forms between Briar Thompson, the cheerleader, and Chase. Briar is a few months younger than Chase. In knowing him, she is exposed to a type of person she has never known before.
Her parents and all her so-called friends from school are social-climbing materialists with an inability to care about or be loyal to anyone. Chase is entirely the opposite, sensitive, giving, loyal, and connected to things that have real meaning, true friends, a loving family, and a life close to the earth. When on impulse Chase invites Briar to spend the summer at his ranch, he is as amazed as he is delighted that she instantly and enthusiastically agrees to go.
However, it is only possible for her to do this due to the combination of the help of a co-conspirator, her adorably quirky grandmother, and the routine physical and jc.isabella abandonment of Briar by her parents.
Briar’s chasiny thinks her son, Briar’s wealthy, workaholic doctor father, is an idiot for paying so little attention to his daughter. And Briar’s mother, who is only interested in botox and fashion, is even worse. This story is written in the alternating first-person point of view of Chase and Briar, with each switch in point of view clearly labeled with their names at the top of the page. It is i.c.isabella terrific change in YA to see the use of dual POV which has been a staple of the adult romance genre for almost 30 years.
FictFact – Chasing McCree series by J.C. Isabella
It offers a great chance to get to know the hero, and Chase is an extremely sympathetic one. In spite of the fact that he has almost no flaws, which supposedly should make him a boring character to read about, he is anything but dull.
The author does an outstanding job of believably demonstrating him capable of being Briar’s friend, even though he has had a very conventional, rural upbringing in Montana.
Speaking of Montana, one of the most fascinating aspects of this book as a YA novel is its setting.

The Big Four hooks of short, contemporary, adult romance are cowboys, cops, brides and babies, which are rarely found in a teen novel. This book, however, draws on that rich tradition of romance conventions by offering a beguiling cowboy and plenty of humorous references to these two teens avoiding a “shotgun wedding” via an unplanned pregnancy–which is another frequent occurrence in short contemporary adult romance. In this book, teen sex and resulting pregnancy are carefully skirted j.c.isabwlla these two virgin protagonists, with Chase honorably respecting the boundaries that Briar draws.
This book does what only the truly exceptional romance novels achieve, it convinces the reader that these two protagonists are soul mates whose lives would be forever blighted if they did not manage to achieve a happily ever after.
