“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 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.

~ 5 Choose Happy Stars ~
I have to start by saying that I am so happy that I chose to take a chance on a new author so many books ago. Deciding to read Prescott Lane’s books has been one of the best decision I have made. Her books just keep getting better and better with each new release.
The Reason For Me was an emotionally gripping story about overcoming ones demons and fears and learning to love again.
There was so much to this story and I feel that readers should go into this story blind. I think you need to experience the emotions of this story as the plot unfolds. Prescott hit all of my emotions with this book. I was smiling, laughing, crying, yelling and swooning. And yes my panties were melting too 😉 I thought this book was very well written and had me engaged and intrigued all the way through. She gave us a wonderful storyline and the characters were amazing also. Both Holt and Annalyse were broken people who had something horrible happen to them, but I loved following them on their journey to happiness. It definitely wasn’t an easy road.
The Reason For Me is a standalone novel told in Dual POV. I really loved how Prescott told this story. Through the two different POV we learn about both Holt and Annalyse’s past, but also get to see them in present time also. That may not make sense but I don’t want to say more.
As I said before we follow Holt and Annalyse’s journey to happiness in this book. Annalyse is a writer who has been traveling around the world writing travel pieces and now has decided to go back home and housesit for her sister. She has decided she has had enough running from a tragic event that happened 5 years ago. This is where she meets Holt. Holt is her sister’s next door neighbor. These two meet under strange circumstances. Both knowing they don’t want anything serious, they decide to embark on a friends with benefits type bond. But what happens when your arrangement turns into something more?? Will Holt be able to overcome his demons and open up to Annalyse?? Will these two broken souls be able to find love again?? Read this book for those answers.
I would recommend this book to everyone. If you are a fan of an emotionally charges story with two broken characters who find each other and learn to overcome their demons, then this is the book to read. If Prescott is a new author to you, be like me and give her a chance…she may turn into one of your favorite authors, like she did for me.
