Product Description

Join the adventure, find love with chasing Reese. now an award-winning Action & Adventure Sports Romance novel by debut writer Imy Santiago (JoandIsalovesbooks 2015 Readers Choice Awards).

Loss brings love...

Everything in life is not permanent but it was perfect. Catalina Pardo had a career in journalism most people could only dream of, a hot, sexy fiancé to call her own and a brilliant future ahead of her. When tragedy struck, the life she once knew fell apart. Four years later, traumatized by the events that ultimately changed her existence, Catalina sets herself on a punishing work schedule, preventing herself from facing the demons of her grief-stricken past. Emotionally shut down, she's alive but not living because everyone she ever loved leaves her.

Fate intervenes in Catalina's life in the form of a last minute assignment to a snowy mountain lodge in Whistler, B.C. Sent there to cover the life of the infamous Jackson Reese; an Olympic Snowboarding Champion, she is faced with many challenges bringing to surface the raw emotions of her past. Compelled to work alongside Stryder Martynus, an award winning photographer brought in to document the Reese press tour, tensions and denial run high forcing Catalina to accept the past and face the present with zero regrets.

*Adult Contemporary Romance - Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not suitable for readers under the age of eighteen.*

Wow wow wow and another shot of wow!!

This is a beautiful story and one that will stay with you.

Descriptive words to describe this novel would be - stunning, fabulous, emotional, flawless and amazing! 100% worth it.

I truly can't believe this is a debut book by the author! *standing ovation for Ms Santiago*

Whenever I read a book I always find if that book makes me have feelings or think then it's an awesome book!
Well with this one I felt it on every level and I also had so many questions in my head that I couldn't keep up with them all.

I feel very blessed to have been lucky enough to receive an arc of this book.
I literally didn't put this down from the moment I started reading and I actually read it in just over 24 hours, if it hadn't been for the things in life like needing sleep and seeing to small children then I would have read through.

This book gripped me that much and had me on such an emotional roller coaster I really didn't want to put it down. I wanted to continue reading through each new chapter that I came to because even though the ride may have been emotional it was a wonderful one.

Meet Catalina (Cat) - a woman that's had so much heartache and personal loss throughout her life, that to just survive she builds these walls around not just herself, her heart too. After enduring yet another tragedy that robs her of her planned future, she recoils into herself and outwardly hides behind her image and her job as a journalist. Cat basically exists and doesn't allow herself to actually live. That is until she gets sent on a new job assignment and encounters the gorgeous Stryder Martynus.

I would give this story more than 5* if it were possible. I loved it from page one, the writing is beautiful, descriptive and mesmerising. The characters are so likeable they felt like friends by the end, as if I knew them so well. I laughed, smiled, cried and even shouted at my kindle once, I was that involved in it. I found it so hard to put down.

The story is of Catolina - Cat, a reporter who has suffered more than her fair share of tragedy, so she lives life day to day without joy. She is sent on an assignment she really does not want to do, but once there things start to change in her life when she meets Stryder and Jackson and they will never go back to the way they were.

Stryder is a world class sports photographer and best friends of Jackson, he has been hurt in love and has no interest in being hurt again. He meets Cat and he finds himself hoping that maybe things could be different.

Jackson - Jax, is a world class pro snow board champion. He lives life on the edge, has plenty of issues of his own but when he meets Cat he feels a bond of friendship which is undeniable. Could she be the person to heal him and give him strength?

I love all three of them, they are wonderful characters and their story will entice you in and keep you there. This is a beautiful love story of two people finding there way forward again and of a new friendship for Stryder best friend Jax, which will save him.

It is an epic story and I cannot wait for book two. It is a definite MUST READ!!

I really enjoyed this book by Imy Santiago and it's hard to believe that it's a debut novel! I found it to be very well written and I thoroughly enjoyed the multiple points of view. I really liked that the main characters are in their early-mid 30's so they certainly had more maturity and depth to them and I was so glad that they didn't jump straight into bed at the first (or second opportunity) because that would have absolutely taken away from the story. I have to say, some character reactions were over the top and dramatic to the point that I was taken out of the story momentarily. Overall it was a great read and I'm definitely looking forward to the next book in this series. I recommend it and give 4 stars.

This is the first novel by Imy Santiago and the first one in her SAFELIGHT series. If there ever was a book written about rising from the ashes and coming up stronger, this book would be it. Imy Santiago knocks it out of the park with this one. Catalina Pardo has been going through life at a monotonous pace since tragedy struck her life four years ago. Being put on an assignment in the snowy tundra of Whistler B.C. doesn't help her. One, she is not a fan of snow and two, she is deathly afraid of the snowy terrain and what it represents to her. Going into it with the intentions of just getting her job done sounds great until she meets Stryder Martynus and Jackson Reese. Stryder brings something back in her life that has been missing for many years and Jackson brings to her life a kinship she has never known.

By reading this short synopsis you figure you know the story...well you don't. The relationship that blooms between Cat and Stryder and Cat and Jax are very different and beautiful in their own way. Cat is a strong character that has survived and when knocked down, keeps on swinging. With these two men she learns there is more to life than just surviving but there is also living. Stryder and Jax have their own life tragedies they are trying to work through and with Cat's help they are able to do so.

In the portion of her book "About the Author" Imy states that her stories are about "loss, friendship, love and hope". She does that with great success in Chasing Reese. One-Click this book, you will not be sorry.

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic story!! adventure,heart warming, love, hot, uplifting, heart breaking.. 22 January 2015

This is one of those stories that I stumbled upon and am so damn glad I did! I had seen some teasers and the trailer while in a release party/take over. This book made me want to read it so badly and I one clicked right away.

This story had me in tears 12% through. The prologue grabbed me and yanked me in. I did not want to put this book down at all!

Catalina is a beautiful journalist that embarks on a life changing journey through an unexpected assignment. Her life has been heartbreaking and she definitely has some high walls built to everyone around her. The losses in her life have been devastating, if she doesn't love then she cannot hurt.

Jackson Reese is a thrill seeker and Winter Olympic Gold Medalist snowboarder. He is so misunderstood to the media and the way people see him, he just wants to be seen for himself.

Stryder....oh man. Stryder is a beautiful man that posses a heart of gold. He too has dealt with heartbreak and stays guarded.

Fate has a way of aligning when you need it most in life. If you firmly believe in such things just like me, you will absolutely love this book!

This is the first book in the Flight Series and a fabulous debut for Imy Santiago!! I am in love with this book and how it was written. I laughed a lot and had a great time reading this story.

Lessons to bring away from stories like this....Never Ever Doubt What You Are Capable Of!!

Life is too short, hang on and enjoy the ride!!

I cannot wait for the next book in this series and the story to continue!!

Im not one for love stories but when I saw snowboarding I was intrigued. The cover def stands out from the rest I was looking at.

So let's start the beginning of the book without giving much away blows you away. How descriptive it sucks you right in from the get go. I could visualize everything that was going on in this book like it was a movie.

So this woman cat def goes through some stuff. It's something even a guy can relate to. Self doubt. A bad past. The connection she makes with Stryder is believable unlike other fantasizes books. The author does an amazing job in description and development of thier story.

Then Jackson. This guy cracks me up. An amazing friend with a troubled past. I found myself hoping he gets his own book. The description of landscapes and snowboarding was spot on.

Finding out this was the authors first book was very interesting it seems like years and years of writing by a seasoned vet.
I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone, and cannot wait to get my hands on the next one. Amazing job Imy Santiago!
4.0 out of 5 stars Emotional, complex, and adorable 12 June 2015

This was a pretty decent debut novel that was complex, witty, and full of romantic angst. I wouldn't say this was a book that I "couldn't put down" or just "had to know what happens next" but a nice break from some of the more dramatic reads out there. More of a quick pace read with a complex issue and character, Catalina Pardo, whose past tragedy holds her back from experiencing life to its fullest. I did enjoy her wit, banter and the angst between her and Stryder!

The switching POV'S provides an in depth view of the thought process between all characters involved. Along with Catalina and Stryder, we also get the pleasure of getting to know Jackson Reese. The three of them together are a riot and although we get the sense Reese is straight he kept reminding me of my gay best friends lol. I think that's where I couldn't wrap around his character as much as I could with Stryder and Catalina. Either Reese was severely over compensating or he was just a VERY "sex innuendo-ing, eye waggling, remind you of a immature 16 year old" type of guy. I have a feeling there is more too him but beyond the immediate issue that was presented in this book we don't get much more of Reese.

This book is going to make you feel so be sure you have the tissues, maybe some chocolate, and a tub of ice cream; get comfy and ready to ride the emotional rollercoaster that this second chance romance will take you on.

(Side note: I think this would be awesome to read in the winter next to the tree all lit; totally going to make that happen *wink*)

So, everyone has those books that sit on their Kindle, or in their bookcase, waiting to be read. Or maybe, you've been meaning to purchase said book, and just repeatedly forget.
I'm slapping myself seven ways to Sunday for not purchasing and reading this book sooner. The story, my God, the story was AMAZING!!! I don't know what to say. I'm just that blown away by what I read.
Stryder, Catalina, and Jackson are, by far, amongst the top characters I have read this year. To watch the unique bind these characters have play out was simply BREATHTAKING!!! The relationship between Stryder and Cat was awesome to watch unfold. I spent the entirety of this book rooting for them. Jackson Reese!!! What can I say about him? I ADORE him!!!
There was a small amount of grammatical/punctuation errors that my ever so critical eye caught, but overall, I was captivated by this book.
I cannot wait to read what comes next for this trifecta of characters!!!
Definitely, a top read in 2015 for me!
