The Reason by Jen Andrews

The Reason (Just Say Yes, #1)


Zoey James is in a funk. She has been through more in her twenty-three years than most people have experienced in their entire lives. After her ex-husband tries to take everything she’s worked so hard for, she makes one rule: Never date someone she works with. 

 When her father’s newly hired mechanic moves into the apartment above their family-run business, Zoey’s lonely life is flipped upside down. 

 As a teenager, New Zealand native, Andy Tate’s family is tragically killed in an accident, and he is taken in by his aunt and uncle. Andy is pulled away from the only place he’s ever known as home, and moved halfway around the world to Northern California. 

 Ten years and one failed marriage later, Andy finds himself living in a new city, with a new job at James Racing, and living in an apartment next door to Zoey, his new boss’s beautiful and damaged daughter. 

 After an interesting chain of events over one weekend, Andy and Zoey form an unexpected bond. Even though he’s the only one who can get through to her, she will do all that she can to keep him at a distance and not break her one rule. 

 Will Andy be the reason for Zoey to start living her life again, or will she continue on her downward spiral, until she finally hits rock bottom?

My Review

Epic. Epic. Epic. Did I mention this book is EPIC? Well, it is. 
I met Jen when she did an impromptu takeover on my blog, and after reading the teasers about The Reason, I knew it was something I had to read. Boy, was I right. 
Romance usually isn't my thing. I like my romance mixed with vampires and ghosts and other paranormal things, but she had me hooked from page one. 
Delving into Zoey's childhood, I actually forgot I was reading and I was right there with Zoey, reliving her memories. My knuckles were white as they pressed into my palm as I went through everything she did. When my cat jumped on me and brought me back to reality, I looked around and was almost surprised to see my bedroom around me. Jen has a gift. 
The Reason is about two beautiful, but broken, people - Zoey and Andy. They both have pasts that have made them shy away from love, but sometimes our fate is written in the stars and we have no choice but to follow along. As you read this book, you learn more about why these two are the way they are, and you begin rooting for them to be together. I don't want to give too much away, but I will say that it's an epic romance, and an epic story. Stop. Stop what you're doing RIGHT NOW and get this book. Zoey and Andy will get right into your heart and they will never, ever leave. I can only imagine that books 2 & 3 will be even more spectacular, as we follow them on this crazy ride and see what Jen has in store for them. 
If I could give this book a million stars, I would. And they would all outshine the rest in the sky.

About the Author

I live in a small town in Northern California with my husband and all of our rescued pets. Like the main character, Zoey, in my upcoming book series, I come from a family of mechanics. My father is a mechanic, all of his brothers are/were mechanics at one time or another. I have never NOT been around hot rods! My husband is a mechanic as well, so we have a few of our own classic Chevys. I have always been an avid reader, and finally decided to try my hand at writing after I heard a song. Yes, a song! It may sound silly, but that one song stirred up all of these ideas and emotions, that I began writing the ideas down so I would maybe, someday, actually DO something with it. I started writing my "Just Say Yes" series in October of 2012 and have completed three books for Andy and Zoey, hopefully to be released soon!
