Blog Tour, Review and GIVEAWAY: Fight or Flight Book 1 & 2- Jamie Canosa



Summary: Be smart.
Keep your head down.
And look out for number one.

These are the rules Jay has lived by for the past two years. The rules of surviving life on the streets. But when Em comes bursting into his life, in all of her disastrous glory, the rules go right out the window.

Survive.
Flee what’s been left behind.
And never look back.

Emerson’s plan was simple. Though, it was easier said than done. The city streets are dangerous and unforgiving to a new arrival. Especially, a seventeen-year-old girl who’s never known anything but life in the suburbs. Sometimes, however, what’s lurking behind those white picket fences can be more frightening than any dark alley.

Both of them made the same decision when life got overwhelming—to run from their demons. Brought together by fate or circumstance, Em and Jay find the kind of love neither of them ever expected. But, when those demons come back to haunt them and their love is on the line, which instincts will they choose to follow this time . . . Fight or Flight?

Review: I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
OMG!! I love this cover! And the book was amazing! This book has approximately 350 pages and I flew through it in a few hours, I literally could not put it down until it was finished. This book is both sad and beautiful at the same time. It talks about a lot of real life situations that were sometimes hard to hear but made me realize what some people have to deal with on a daily basis in order to survive. The story is also cute and heartwarming in a weird way. The ending made me very happy and I can't wait to read the next book.
I love Emerson. She is so brave to have survived what she went through and have escaped even though she knew she would have to live on the streets. She may have been inexperienced in that environment but like she said she would rather die on the streets then at home. I also fell in love with Jay. He didn't have to help Em but he knew she wouldn't survive without him. I really think that they complimented each other perfectly and I'm so glad that they found one another. Despite the circumstance. I also really liked Sam. It's nice to see that there are still good people in the world.
I LOVED THIS BOOK! I can't wait to get started on book two. Jamie Canosa is an author to watch out for. I need to find out if Em and Jay finally get their happily ever after. I would recommend this novel to EVERYONE!!!

Summary:  To move on,
 Leave the past behind, 
And build a new life with Jay.

That’s all Em wanted. After everything they’d been through together, they were both overdue their ‘happily ever after’. Too bad the world doesn’t work that way. Memories last longer than dreams and Em’sfears continue to plague her both day and night, interfering with that new life she so desperately craves.

To start over,
Secure a future,
And give Em the life she deserves.

That was Jay’s plan, but the past isn’t done with them, yet. While Em still struggles to overcome the ghosts of her past, Jay is forced to come face to face with his. When the skeletons in his closet step back into the light, Jay must decide what he will do—and what he will sacrifice—to protect Em from them. 

Against all odds, Em and Jay are on the verge of having everything they’ve ever wanted. They’ve fought for it before, but is their love strong enough to endure any more heartache? The time has come for each of them to choose for themselves whether or not they will allow the past to continue to corrupt their future. And, together, they must decide, will it be . . . NOW OR NEVER?

Review: I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
I enjoyed this book, it was gripping and easy to devour but I didn't enjoy it as much as Fight or Flight because I didn't find the situations as intense. I wanted more of Jay's story, I didn't really get where his dad came from and how he found them and I don't really know what he actually wanted, well besides money. I am glad the story ended the way it did because Jay and Em finally got to be happy. But I still want more! I want, no I NEED to know what happens now. Do the villains finally go to jail? And if yes do they stay there. And do Jay and Em get their happy ending forever?
I'm still in love withe Jay and Em but it I am sad that they keep blaming themselves for hints that they have no control over. I'm glad that they are getting their lives together and coming into their own. I love that they are able to grow and overcome their issues together and have each other for support. I also really like amazon and Ashlyn and I can't wait to get their stories.
This was another awesome book by Jamie Canosa and I can't wait to read more. This story tugged on my heart strings and I want more! I would recommend this novel to those who love a good romantic contemporary.
