Book Description from Goodreads:
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 thoughts**

I really liked this book and had a hard time putting it down. The chances of a cheerleader and a cowboy, two completely opposite worlds, actually getting together feel somewhat slim. It also isn't normal for someone to have such a mature change of heart about her own personality and way of life at the young age of 16 or 17. But, this is fiction. It can be an ideal of what life could be like. How wonderful to have a strong sense of self at a young age. Even better, how wonderful to realize that a shallow life is not the proper choice.

I enjoyed how the relationship between Chase and Briar slowly grew and developed. It's nice to not have kids jumping into bed with each other right off the bat. They also don't fall in love with each other within the first few hours, though there is an obvious instant attraction. They complement each other well and learn a lot from each other. Learning about the ranch is also a fun read. You may learn something new, yourself.

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.
