GUEST REVIEW: Chasing Reese by Imy Santiago - Reviewed by Ginelle Blanch

Once again, Ginelle Blanch has stepped in to do a Guest Review here on the blog.  It sounds like this latest read is a real winner and I know I will be checking it our for sure!

Here is Ginelle's review:

**I won a signed copy of this book**

If I could give this book 10 stars, I would! I had never heard of this author before and, this is her very first book.

I am SO impressed with the writing, voice, and style of this book. You'd never know that this was a first book for the author. It's amazing, fast paced, and heartfelt.

The story is about living life, not simply existing in life. It's about picking up the pieces after tragedy occurs. It's about learning to love again. It's about friendship and hope.

While Catalina Pardo is a strong woman, she is also quite broken. Tragedy has taken much from her in life so, she's learned to guard the very heart of herself. Never letting herself feel, or truly live.

Stryder Martynus has had some unfortunate relationships that have caused him to hold back the very best parts of himself.

Jackson Reese...he lives life and he lives it LOUD. Upbeat and in your face, he's a no bull kind of guy but, even he has his demons. He and Stryder are best friends from way back. But, add Catalina into the mix and you have yourselves a dynamic "trifecta". They bring out the very best parts of each other. Strong friendships are formed and lasting, diamond hard, love comes to the surface.

I just cannot even begin to say how much I loved this book. So emotional, so fun and heartbreaking. Such a great read, truly. I will be thinking about this book for a while. I'm glad that I gave it a chance. Simply wonderful!
