The Reason for Me by Prescott Lane REVIEWS!!!!

AP new - synopsis.jpg


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.


Darra's Review:

This book was looking like the normal Adult romance story. Which is fine because I do like this genre. However this story is memorable. Absolutely shocking scene that made me drop my mouth and reread it to make sure what I saw happened. Well written and claimed my interest and emotions all in one book.
Annalyse is a blunt and to the point. However an introvert. Her past may have to do with that. Such a horrid tragedy to live through at a young age. It makes it hard to move on. Despite her not wanting to become part of other peoples life, she goes out on a limb and does what her sister asked her to do. I enjoyed her till the end. No pussy footing about her past. She is real in who she is.
Holt is another story. Yes, he has a past that haunts him. However he plans to keep it that way. In his past and memories in his mind. He has no plans to meet someone else. But fate has other plans. Which means Annalyse stumbles into his life. She is completely different then he is. But sometimes that is what makes a relationship more dynamic.

I could continue discussing this but you will start nodding off or I will ruin it for you. However this book is worth your time.

I rate the book a 4.6 out of 5.

Sunny's Review:

I have read the last few books by Prescott Lane and I really liked them. That is why I thought I would give this book a try. I was not sure what to expect and I am happy with how this turned out. Annalyse is a writer and blogger who has had a pretty jacked up life. She was in foster care but was one of those few lucky ones that had a great foster home. She wanted to have a family of her own and was on her way to making that happen when tragedy struck her. She is trying to rebuild again when the book starts. I really liked her. She was not a whiny girl that focused solely on her misfortunes. She is open and honest about her life and how it has affected her. When she meets Holt she sees parts of herself in him. Holt is a bit of a mystery. You know that there is something in his past that has messed him up but he is not open about it. He refuses to have any type of relationship and is closed off to everyone. As he becomes closer to Annalyse, he does try to be a little bit more open but not much. There are a lot of really funny parts to this book. While the author focuses on some serious issues with the main characters she shows their other sides too. 

I am giving this book 4.6 stars out of 5. It is really good and I think most people will like it. 


“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.
