Give Me Reason
About the Book:
Vivienne Callahan has known only hardship. As if growing up with an alcoholic, drug addicted mother wasn’t traumatic enough, she’s escaped from her physically and verbally abusive boyfriend only to struggle every day to make ends meet as a waitress in a Minneapolis diner.
Along comes Mikah Blake, a handsome stranger who quickly takes an unexpected and persistent interest in her. On the surface, “Mr. Suit” seems to be Vivienne’s opposite: rich, well-fed, successful. As Vivienne will learn, Mikah is more than he seems, and for reasons unknown, he’s determined to be her knight in shining armor. But after having finally found her own two feet after years of abuse, it’s difficult for her to accept Mikah’s help.
Will her body’s unexpected response to Mikah’s touch be reason enough to overcome her pride and traumatic past and learn to love and trust? Or will her past, refusing to be left behind, come back to claim her?
From the first page of Give Me Reason (The Reason Series) I was intrigued by the character of Mikah. He is handsome, wealthy, tender and mysterious. All the best qualities in a leading man!!
Vivienne seems so fragile at the beginning of the story, yet she doesn’t want to trust Mikah when he first tries to be nice to her. She has always taken care of herself and Mikah is so nice so fast that I don’t blame her for being more than a little suspicious.
The more you learn about Vivienne the more you see how much she needs a knight in shining armor, if she will only accept him. The more you learn about Mikah the more mysterious he becomes. What exactly is his job and why is he so interested in Vivienne?
Give Me Reason ends way too soon, in a cliffhanger. I was cursing the ending when I got there. I couldn’t believe I was going to have to wait who knows how long for Book 2. Fortunately, I just found out that Book 2, Give Me Hope will be released November 19, 2013, so not that long to wait!!
I give Give Me Reason 4 1/2 stars. It’s a little too short and a bit uneven in spots, but overall fast, fun, super romantic read!!
I received a complimentary copy of this book for the purpose of review through Innovative Online Book ‘Tours. All opinions are 100% my own.
