Hello everyone, I’ve got more goodies for you today 🙂 Let me show you!
Give Me Reason (Reason #1)
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?
He’s looking down at me, making me feel small at five feet two inches. He has to be at least six feet tall. Broad shoulders. His suit today is gunmetal grey with blue or black pin striping—I can’t tell which. His shirt is a beautiful lavender color with a darker purple tie.
“How do you know I’m not an addict?” I ask, softly.
He smiles at me, warm, genuine. “Because, you’ve come to return the money I left you last night as a tip.” My jaw falls open.
“How”—I swallow hard—”did you know?”
His smile fades a little. “Because, why else would you come down here?”
I close my mouth and look down at the floor. His ability to read me is really scary.
“Since you haven’t eaten since last night, I’m going to take you to lunch.”
I feel my face flush bright red, both in anger and complete irritation. “That is not why I’m here. I’ve survived for my entire life fending for myself, I don’t need some rich hot shot business mogul buying me food.” I reach into the pocket of my bag and pull the folded up paper from it. I thrust it towards him. He refuses to take it. Tears of frustration trickle down my cheeks. “Damn it Mikah, take it.” I push it at him again and again he refuses. “I’m not a damn charity case. I don’t need your money or your food.”
The bell chimes. We’ve finally reached the skyway. As soon as the doors open, I drop the folded up paper with his money in it and bolt from the elevator, turning left, hoping and praying I can get away.
“Vivienne, stop.” I hear him say behind me. I keep going, walking quickly but not running. Yet. I’m trying hard to not make a scene.
But he doesn’t seem to care about that. He catches me quickly, spins me around. I grab hold of his arm to catch my balance so I don’t go sprawling onto the floor.

I was a little reluctant to read this one, but something said I might enjoy it, so I did! And I had no idea what to expect. I kind of like that, when you read a synopsis and try to figure out what kind of supernaturals your gunna find in a book. I liked that you learn quickly that you’re gunna be reading about angels, but maybe you shouldn’t judge too fast. I’m also not normally and angel fan, but I really liked this one! Maybe you should check it out too 🙂
Vivienne has not had it easy. After she barely escaped her abusive husband, and tries to pick up the pieces of her life by working as hard as she can in a little diner, some strange things start happening. I must say, she is definitely determined, and though maybe has a less optimistic outlook on life-with understandable reasons- she also never gives up. She busts her booty to get her life back together. And then comes in the big old HAWT piece LOL
Mikah has that sexy accent, he’s HAWT, rich, kind, and wants nothing more that to help her, protect her, love her. They do have that insta-love thing going on, but it didn’t seem too forced which made it easier. He’s sweet, he has a little supernatural secret, and he’s all about Vivienne.
So, I will say, if you look at one single review, including mine now, every single one will say CLIFF HANGER. LOL I usually don’t read reviews of a book before I write my own, but after that major cliff hanger-which I usually like- I went searching and had to laugh, because I am not the only one freaking out about what just happened with that cliff hanger. LOL I think that it maybe could have been done just a little bit more…. I’m not sure, I do normally very much like cliff hangers, but this one left me a little too much….. something. LOL It’s hard to describe, but I plan on reading book two, as I think I’ll need to, in order to get some answers, and maybe a little satisfaction too 🙂 4 TEAR JERKING, REAL LIFE PAWS!
