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.

Where do I start with this book. From the beginning I cried, at the end I cried and even laughed in between. This book is not a ugly cry by any means. The book is written so well that Imy captures you immediately. I loved how the story flowed., it wasn’t your typical boy meets girl and fall in love. This book they both had to work at it, giving it the realistic feel.

The book starts 4 years ago with the love story of Catalina and Blake. Then tragedy strikes. 4 years later Catalina is trying to move on. While she is on vacation she gets the call that she has to go chase Reese.

Jackson Reese is a Hot world champion snowboarder who has a secret all of his own. His best friend and World re known photographer Stryder is just as Hot and is afraid to love again.

Stryder and Catalina has several chance meetings. Then they find out they will be working together. They try to keep things professional but Stryder and Catalina has this pull to each other.

What will Catalina and Stryder do? Will they keep it professional or take a risk on love?And where does Jackson fit in all of this?

Imy for a debut novel you knocked it out of the park!! I was so caught up in it I never seen the ending coming. I really didn’t want it to end. Can’t wait to read Finding Reese.
