My <3 was about to explode while reading Chasing the Stars by JD Rivera



Mackenzie Blanchard’s life wasn’t easy; never had been, never would be. She thought things were looking up when she started yet another new school her senior year. She made friends and was enjoying life the best she could.

One friendship turned into something more, and just when she felt safe, things were ripped apart.

Hayes Morgan had never cared about anyone but himself. He was living the life he wanted, just having fun. He never dreamed that he would fall for the new girl in school.

What started out as a sweet friendship turned into something he never thought possible, until she vanished…

Their paths collide a year after they last saw each other, but they are both harboring secrets. Will they be able to trust and love each other again, or will the secrets rip them apart forever?


Casey’s Thoughts <3<3<3<3<3<3

Holy Cow!  I tell you what! JD Rivera sent me Chasing the Stars, and needless to say I feel like my heart is about to explode!  I loved Guarded and Defensive, but Chasing the Stars takes her writing to a whole new level!

Mackenzie has a crappy life: family, housing, and just about anything that goes along with it.  She never stays in the same place long, but when her dad loses his job again the move they make places Hayes in her path.

Hayes is your typically player.  He doesn’t commit, and lets his expectations be known.  When he sees Mackenzie in class, he’s drawn to her.  After spending a little time with her, he knows that they are destined to be friends.  Little does he know that Mackenzie needs him more than anything. He feels as if he is there to protect her, and boy does he ever!

With the crappiest of parents, Hayes is her escape, but when they finally bring her problem to the limelight what will happen to Mackenzie?  I will tell you that when part one ends, I wanted to cry, scream, and tell JD that I’m in love with these characters and this story!!!!!!!

Chasing the Stars will make you fall in love, but it will also bring a major issue in our society.  I finished the story on my flight to Tampa, and I was text in JD between connecting flights.  I just prayed that Mackenzie’s stubborn self wouldn’t get in the way of her happiness!

If you’re looking for a story to make you feel then Chasing the Stars is for you!


J.D. Rivera lives in Oklahoma with her husband and two boys. Her life consists of school projects, homework, cartoon shows, and little league sports. She loves Diet Mountain Dew, the OKC Thunder, costume jewelry, the beach, and reading.
