Book Description:


She likes it quick and dirty. 

I like orders and rules. 

She hates small talk. 

I hate to share. 

She’s an open book. 

I’m a closed dresser drawer. 

She rides a Harley. 

And that drives me f’ing nuts. 

Annalyse and I have both lived in our own personal hells for half a decade. She’s learned to love the warmth, and I’m still consumed. But my new neighbor is stoking more than my libido these days. We agreed on only pleasure. But she changed the rules. 

And now I’m not even sure what they are. 

Maybe there’s a reason she found me that night, maybe there’s a reason I can’t stop thinking about her, maybe there’s a reason for the pain. Maybe not. 

We all look for reasons in life. Reasons for death, love, pain. Why one thing happens and not another? It’s human nature. We’ve been looking for the meaning of life since the beginning of time. But maybe the reason for all of it — life, love, loss, heartache — is the curvy brunette living next door.

Book Excerpt:


“You should have on a life jacket.”  

“When I kayak or when I ride my motorcycle?” I ask.

He tries not to smile, but he does.  “Pissed, huh?”

“Observant, aren’t you?”

“Motorcyclists are twenty-five percent more likely to die and five times more likely to be injured than a passenger in a car,” he says.

“You looked that up just to lecture me, didn’t you?”

“Not the point,” he says.  “No more motorcycle.”

Did he really think he could go all alpha male on me?  Usually, it would be hot as all-get-out to see a man in control, dominant, but right now alpha equals asshole!   Note to self — I should do a blog post on that.  Where have all the good alphas gone?  “Who do you think you are?” I say, walking away.  “You’re not my husband or my father.  Come to think of it, I wouldn’t let my father or husband order me around like this.”

His fingers lightly touch my elbow.  It isn’t a grab.  I barely feel it, and as quickly as he touched me, it’s over.  “I’m a doctor.  I’ve seen what . . .”

“You’re a gynecologist!  You’ve seen what a motorcycle can do to a vagina?”

Oh God, I’m in trouble.  He’s got the dirtiest look in his eye.  “I’d imagine the vibration would feel pretty damn good.”

I can’t help it and bust out laughing.  “You are impossible.”

“And it’s the law to carry a life vest for every person in a kayak,” he says.
I roll my eyes.  “You like rules.”

“I like order.”

“Ordering people around,” I say.

“Only certain people,” he says.

Don’t ask me why, but the thought of him “ordering” me around made my legs clench together, or maybe it was the mention of vibrations.  Either way, the idea of him taking control of my body didn’t sound bad to me at all.  It would be nice to not think so damn much all the time and just feel something good for a change.

My Book Review:

The Reason For Me is an emotional story of two broken people who meet, and out of their blossoming relationship comes healing, new beginnings, and a redeeming love that will tug at the heartstrings and stir the soul.

Author Prescott Lane weaves a beautiful romantic tale that takes the reader on a emotional roller coaster ride as they follow Annalyse and Holt's love story.  This is a compelling story that will tug at the heartstrings, but will also make the reader a believer in the ability to overcome life's heartaches and challenges, and get a chance at finding true love.

The story has enough pain, heartache, loss, drama, romance, angst, humor, and tender romantic moments that will easily captivate the reader's attention. The slow building development of Annalyse and Holt's relationship makes this compelling story worth the read, as their connection and and sexual chemistry is put to the test by the remnants of their dark pasts. You can't help but feel compassion for Annalyse and Holt as their story unfolds with intriguing twists and turns that will keep you turning the pages, and hoping that they will get their chance at love. 

I loved how the author draws the reader in as Annalyse struggles with her deep traumatic scars, as well as for Holt who struggles with his own emotional baggage, but together they can help each other conquer their inner demons and heal. The emotional drama, and a slow smoldering craving and build up of sexual tension leads up to a passionate romance that will send tingles down your spine. Author Lane Prescott sure knows how to weave a powerful love story that will simply leave a reader breathless. 

The Reason For Me has an intriguing cast of characters who are realistic, flawed, and easy to relate to; witty dialogue and engaging interactions; and a breathtakingly compelling and powerful storyline that will take you on a hauntingly beautiful journey where you will experience the full gamut of emotions. If you are looking for a hopeful and heartwarming love story that follows the journey of two broken people who learn to let go of their dark pasts, and open themselves up to a healing and loving relationship, then The Reason For Me is the story for you!

The Reason For Me is an amazing romance story of love, hope, happiness, and moving forward in life that will resonate with you for a very long time.
