“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.

Wow what a book! I can say It’s been a good month since I have had a book hangover like the one The Reason For Me gave me. It just hit all the right spots for me to make it a book I wish I could read again for the first time.
I’ve been sitting here trying to figure out how to express all the feelings this book gave me. It’s full of so much heart, hope, and longing, it’s just gah! The two main characters have been through so much and both never really thought of a future with anyone, they had just come to believe they had loved and lost and would never find that kind of love again. But as they say love finds its way in when you least expect it.
The Reason For Me sucked me in from page one until I had devoured the whole thing. I found myself full of so much hope for these two I was cheering them on until the end. I loved how there were plenty of sexy moments mixed in with Annalyse’s cheekiness. Annalyse doesn’t tolerate bullshit and it’s amazingly refreshing to see that in a heroine. Holt is just smokin hot! “The Pussy Mechanic” as Annalyse likes to call him is just a man you can’t help but fall for and want to see over come the demons of his past.
Prescott Lane out did herself with this one. I can’t recommend it enough! If you like a good book about characters fighting their way out of the dark, healing, and finding love again, this is for you! If I could give it more than 5 stars i would do it in a heartbeat!
