A Reason to Live by CP Smith
Genre: Romantic Suspense with a TWIST
Editor: Julia Goda
Release Date: 2.21.2016
WARNING: Author believes in soul mates and insta-love, proceed with caution if you’re not a romantic at heart.
Love’s greatest cure is salvation of one’s soul.
Shane Sherman has a problem. Well, two, actually. One has auburn hair and pale-green eyes, and the other? . . . Is a secret. One he doesn’t want to talk about. But all that changes when Sage comes to town.
Sage Sloan is being stalked. So she runs to Trails End and the bravest man her sister said she’d ever met. Sergeant Shane Sherman.
Sparks fly, tempers flare, and bears misbehave as Shane and Sage find a way to coexist in Trails End. That is, until a killer comes to call. Then all bets are off. Shane isn’t about to lose his saving grace.
This is the third and final book in the Reason Series. I highly recommend you read books one and two before “A Reason To Live.”
Rated R for sexual content and language and M for Maxine.
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
OMG….SERIOUSLY I was cracking up through this entire book. Maxine MADE THE BOOK!! I mean don’t get me wrong, I loved Shane and Sage plus Jenn and Jack and Max and Mia but seriously Maxine made the whole story!!!
Shane was in the army and at the beginning of the story a young soldier dies on his watch. Not just any soldier but Sage’s little sister. When the two see each other at the funeral, you can feel a draw but stubborn and guilt ridden Shane runs….Like literally runs away….as far away as he can possibly get.
Sage is dealing with the 1st year anniversary of his sister’s death plus now a stalking. She has none where to go so she follows Shane to Alaska. She is hoping her sisters war letters will, in fact, help her get Shane to help her and protect her.
Shane is soooooo stubborn. I loved Maxine and her super meddling ways in the beginning to get Shane to open up to Sage. The two will take two steps forwards and then Shane slams the door and they fall 37 feet back. Most of the story is dealing with Shane and Sage…ok..Shane opening his eyes to this woman. THE WOMAN his heart needs to heal 100%
The other side plot of the story, besides hilarious Maxine, is who the stalker is and why is he after Sage. That was a great surprise. I really had no clue and so it was a great twist.
I love the epilogue. I haven’t read books 1 and 2 but I actually think the epilogue makes me want to run and but the other books. I didn’t need them to understand their dynamic but to be perfectly honest, it did make me want to live their love stories.
