About the Book:


VIVIENNE CALLAHAN, discharged from the hospital after surviving a near-fatal attack from Riley, her abusive ex-boyfriend, has come to the safety of Mikah’s protection. As she continues to heal physically and mentally from her ordeal, she begins to have strange dreams…dreams that follow her into waking life and hint at a fate she never could’ve foreseen and dangers far greater than Riley.

Meanwhile, MIKAH BLAKE has some ideas about her future, too, and the more she considers his proposals, the weaker her resistance to him becomes. His recent actions have taught her to respect and trust him, but soon her feelings for him threaten to deepen into something more, something she may not be ready for.

In the third book of the Reason series, Vivienne will discover who and what she and the people around her really are.

 My Review:

Give Me Desire Book Review
Give Me Desire (Reason Series) is the continuation of a modern day fairytale which Zoey Derrick began in Give Me Reason (The Reason Series).  I appreciated that Mikah doesn’t just rescue Vivienne – he gives her a way to help herself.  Also, he doesn’t put her under any obligation to love him (although I think she does 😉

This book is a little more steamy than its predecessors.  There are some topless descriptions and the beginnings of sexual situations.  I think it would be suitable for older teenagers and above.

I am very excited to see what the future holds for Vivienne and Mikah, as well as seeing how Zoey Derrick fleshes out Riley’s descent into Hell.  Can he be redeemed?  We’ll have to wait for the next book in the series to find out.

I give Give Me Desire 4 1/2 stars.  It’s a luxurious, face-fanning read!!

Super Easy Vegetable Dip Recipe

My husband’s family is really good at snacks.  Often, when we get together for family parties or holidays we have a snack buffet instead of a heavy meal.  One of my favorite snacks, that my mother-in-law makes, is vegetable dip.  No, it’s not a dip for vegetables (although I guess you could try that).  It’s a vegetable-flavored dip.  It’s super yummy on crackers or spread on little french bread rounds.

This last weekend, we were up in Oregon visiting Art’s parents and I thought I would get the recipe for Bobbie’s yummy vegetable dip to share with my readers.  It’s super easy to make!!


12 ounces mascarpone or whipped cream cheese

1 package dried vegetable soup mix

1-2 Tbsp milk


Stir together the soup mix and cheese.  Add milk, 1 tsp. at a time until mixture is well blended and creamy.  Serve with your favorite dipping foods!!
