From the first page of Give Me Reason (The Reason Series) I was intrigued by the character of Mikah. He is handsome, wealthy, tender and mysterious. All the best qualities in a leading man!!
Vivienne seems so fragile at the beginning of the story, yet she doesn't want to trust Mikah when he first tries to be nice to her. She has always taken care of herself and Mikah is so nice so fast that I don't blame her for being more than a little suspicious.
The more you learn about Vivienne the more you see how much she needs a knight in shining armor, if she will only accept him. The more you learn about Mikah the more mysterious he becomes. What exactly is his job and why is he so interested in Vivienne?
Give Me Reason ends way too soon, in a cliffhanger. I was cursing the ending when I got there. I couldn't believe I was going to have to wait who knows how long for Book 2. Fortunately, I just found out that Book 2, Give Me Hope will be released November 19, 2013, so not that long to wait!!
I was already invested in the story of Give Me Hope (The Reason Series) even before I started reading it, having already read the first book in the series, Give Me Reason, which I thoroughly enjoyed (read my review). The second book is just as intriguing as the first.
Although there is not quite as much excitement in Give Me Hope as there was in its predecessor, there is still plenty of mystery. Who are angels and who are demons? Who are just plain folks? If you are an angel (or demon) will you recognize one of your own kind (or the opposite)? Are Mikah and Vivienne soul mates or will fate keep them apart?
There is a tiny bit of sex in this book (maybe a 2 at the most out of 5). The hope that Mikah and Vivienne will eventually get together (and you know it will be awesome!!) is what drives the reading of this sequel.
Not surprisingly, there is a third book coming in the series, which I hope will tie up all the loose ends and finally give us readers some satisfaction.
