Description from the publisher:

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?


This is book one in the Reason Series.  These books definitely need to be read in order.


Vivienne was brought up in a life that predicted her victimization, but she has struggled and survived.  She is strong.  Mikah's childhood couldn't be more different, brought up with wealth and opportunity, safety and security, but none of that prevented tragedy from visiting his life as well.  Mikah is drawn to Vivienne in ways that he cannot explain.  Can Vivienne trust Mikah when he offers to help her or will her past haunt them both?


I love this book.  I am extremely glad I already have the second book in the series, GIVE ME HOPE, but I am already dreading coming to the end of it and having to wait for the next.  I am looking forward to finding out the significance of Mikah's unusual "birth mark."
