BLOG TOUR: J.C. Isabella

Today's Blog Tour Presented by Reading Addiction Blog Tours! 

I will have a REVIEW and GIVEAWAY at the end, but first, let's get to know the Author!

J.C. Isabella is the author of The Unofficial Zack Warren Fan Club and a romance novel junkie. Ever since she discovered the genera in high school, she has been a self-proclaimed fan. This led to penning her first YA romance. When she isn't thinking up new recipes for the cookbook she hopes to one day write, she is brainstorming a new novel and listening to country music. She lives in the tropics of Florida, with her big fat Italian family, and ornery feline companion.

Title: Chasing McCree
Author: J.C. Isabella
Date Published: 4/14/2012

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 Rating:

My Review:
I really liked Briar in this story. She was that typical popular girl who had it all, but she didn't act like it. She was the type from high school who won homecoming queen and such because of the votes of the not so popular kids, not the popular ones. She seems to have it all on the outside, but really she feels alone. She feels that she has no one in the world except her grandma, who is pretty awesome for a grandma!

Chase came in and turned her world upside down. I loved the development between the two. How she thought he was a slacker and he was actually extremely smart. How everyone called him trailer trash and yet he had his own entire Ranch in Montana. 

I liked how this story parallels the theme of Chase's parents lives. His mom leaving her world to be with his dad didn't work out and Chase and Briar are determined to prove everyone wrong.

Overall this was a solid 4 star story and even though it was young adult it reminded me of reading a western romance. Which I love! Gotta love a cowboy. I am from TEXAS! ; ) I look forward to reading more from J.C. Isabella in the future!
