Just One Reason by Kristen DeMuzio

As teenagers, Lindsay and Grady found a love together that few people are lucky enough to ever experience.When Lindsay Ross decided to visit her aunt for the summer in a small lake town in New York, she didn’t expect anything other than an escape from her demanding parents. She certainly didn’t expect Grady Hawke. At the end of the summer, Lindsay and Grady made plans for their future and vowed to be together forever. Back in New York City, events beyond her control forced Lindsay to turn her back on Grady and their love.

Grady has spent the last five years trying to forget the one girl who broke his heart. But when Lindsay arrives back in town unannounced, will Grady get to know the woman she has become and find out the real reason she left him all those years ago? Or will he push her away for good?

I just finished Just One Reason and I just loved it.  I was hoping that this would get better and it did for me.   If you have been reading this series then you know Safe With You (Wyatt and Taryn) was the first one following Just One Reason which is about Lindsay and Grady.  Lindsay is cousins with Taryn and has been going through some tough times, a lot of it is emotional and she doesn’t know what to do with her life.  Taryn is now in a relationship with Wyatt so feeling lonely goes back to her Aunt Lana.  She was there one summer and had felt comfortable there but this was where she also met and fell in love with Grady.  With promises to return after that summer she has to end up breaking it off.  Let’s just say that Grady has been very bitter.  Now that she is back, Grady wants nothing to do with her yet wants an explanation.  But here is where we find out that there were secrets that were hidden and too ultimately move on whether it is together or apart, those secrets have to be told.  How will those secrets play into their happily ever after?  You will have to read and see…
I really enjoyed this story.  I thought it flowed really well and to me it was a sweet story about forgiveness and second chances.  Man I just loved Grady.  He is sexy and loyal and I totally get his bitterness.  But once he finds things out, he does change his tune and for me that it was change my feelings for him.  When you can forgive and forget and try to be a better man, sigh, be still my beating heart!!  Lindsay, she is such a sweetheart.  I loved her from Safe With You and was super excited when she was getting her story.  She had her reasons and I can see why she kept
those secrets, you will honestly understand too.  I can say that the chemistry between them was hot!  No matter if they were in or out of the bedroom, they set the pages on fire.
I loved the secondary characters.  Everyone was there from Safe With Me with a few new additions like Leah and Josh.  I loved them!  Now we have a newbie named Ford.  SEXY.  Im super freaking excited that he is next!!!
Honestly, this series has gotten better for me and the characters are so versatile and trust me, you need that here when there are a lot of characters to follow.  You could read this one as a standalone but why in the world would you do that?  Trust me, give these a chance.  I do not regret reading them!
