Tackling Mt. TBR

I'm an internet junkie that is obsessed with books. I own more than I will ever read in this lifetime and yet I'm still compelled
to buy more. I read mostly romance (mild to completely smutty), YA and urban fantasy.

One Good Reason

One Good Reason - Sarah Mayberry I'm pretty sure this is the first category romance I've ever read. No particular reason for that, other than I find the category books a bit overwhelming when I look at them on the rack at the store (or even online.) So many different lines and series to try and sort out. I probably wouldn't have read this one if it weren't for some fabulous people here on GR that talked about how amazing it was. And they were right! This book was lovely. These were real people with real problems. They had baggage, but it was believable baggage and the way they dealt with it made sense. For the most part, I liked Gabby. I found her stubbornness a touch annoying in places, but luckily for her, our hero found it endearing. I did love her relationship with Tyler and Ally (her ex and his wife.) It was extremely refreshing to read about people that had broken up but don't hate each other. The hero, Jon, is Tyler's brother. He carries a lot of guilt because he wasn't able to save Tyler from their abusive parents. He and Gabby get off to a rocky start, but it was interesting to watch their relationship evolve. One bonus to this book was watching the relationship between the two brothers grow. They had not been close, Jon had left the country as soon as he was old enough to and they hadn't really seen each other in years. Watching them rebuild a brotherly bond was touching. I will definitely be picking up Tyler and Ally's book.
