✾ Synopsis ✾


Mackenzie...

With each dawn rose a new day, but nothing changed. Not really. My life was the same revolving circle. We barely lived. We moved. We barely got by in a new place. Until we moved again.
New school. New trailer park. Different day.
The first day of my senior year in high school, I was ready to give up. Ready to run far, far away and hope I would never be found. But I'm a smart girl. I knew it would never work. I had a plan. One I was so close to fulfilling. I could start over. Be a new person.
Live without the "poor girl" and "trailer trash" labels attached to my back.
I became guarded, living by my own rules.
Rule number one: don't worry about learning their names, I wouldn't be around long enough for them to learn mine.
But then, I met him. I tried to resist, tried to push away, make myself seem uninterested, but Hayes wouldn't let me. He saw something in me and chased me until I finally gave in. We became friends — best friends. And then, we became more. My guard fell and I opened my heart, only for him to crush it in his bare hands.


Hayes...

Sex. Booze. Football. In that order.
I'd never been the kind of guy who "did" relationships. They seemed pointless. Girls threw themselves at me, practically purred for me to seduce them.
Why would I give that up?
Why would I want more?
But there was something about Mackenzie. Something different from all those other girls. She was someone I was willing to risk everything for. I didn't care where she came from, or about her past. It didn't matter that she lived on "the wrong side of town" and I was the rich kid "sitting on a gold mine".
Even more, those other girls didn’t matter anymore. Because they weren't my Mac.

✿ My Review ✿





This is the first book written by J.D. Rivera that I've read and I loved it!

Mackenzie Blanchard and Hayes Morgan couldn't be more different: she is the poor girl, living in a trailer park with her unloving parents, that does her best to find a way out of there; he is the rich boy, with a great and loving family, Mr. Popular in school. But when their paths cross, their connection is instant.
Mackenzie and Hayes become friends and later, even though they try to fight their feelings, they become a couple.
But things at Mackenzie home become unbearable and when Hayes decides to ask his father for help, Mackenzie is sent away. When she tries to come back, a misunderstanding makes her doubt Hayes's love and she leaves.
One year later, their paths cross again. They still love each other, but Mackenzie is hiding something from Hayes and Hayes is afraid that something he has done will send Mackenzie running again.
Will they find their happy ending?

Chasing The Stars is a great book with a sweet and heart-warming story, full of emotion. The situations depicted keep the reader captivated and unable to stop reading.

Mackenzie had a rough childhood, always moving because of her alcoholic and abusive father and a mother who didn't do anything to stop him. She knows she has to work hard to be able to have a better life. Although young, she is very strong and fierce.
Hayes is your typical high school player. He is popular and every guy wants to be his friend and every girl wants to date. But he never dates, only has casual encounters. When he meets Mackenzie, everything changes. He wants more. After Mackenzie left, he becomes numb and only when he encounters her again he regains his happiness.

J.D. Rivera wrote an amazing book, very well written, with a compeling story and with great characters. Can't wait to read Chasing Each Other and Miranda and Brad's story!








✿ Excerpt ✿


I turned around to come face to face with green piercing eyes. My breath caught and I felt like I was going to pass out. No way was I standing in front of Hayes Morgan. I couldn't move, I couldn't breathe, I couldn't speak... I couldn't do anything but look into his beautiful eyes.

"Mac?" he finally managed, his voice cracking.

"Yeah," I whispered.

He reached his hand out like he was going to touch me, but then dropped it. "I can't believe it's you. I wasn't sure I'd ever see you again."

I pulled my eyes away from him and noticed the beautiful girl standing beside him with her arm wrapped around his forearm.

"It's really me. It was nice seeing you, but I have to go."

I marched to the door as fast as I could without looking back. I had to get out of there — away from Hayes and definitely away from his girlfriend. Before I could make it far, I heard him yelling, "Mackenzie! Mackenzie, wait!"

I didn't turn around as I quickened my pace. I couldn't talk to him. I didn't know what to say.
