The Reason I Stay
by Patty Maximini
Publication date: September 10th 2014
Genres: New Adult, Romance
Sex should be casual and, preferably, anonymous.
Giving a damn is for nurses, philanthropists and suicide hotlines.
My name is Mathew Rogers and those are the values I built my adult life around. They are also the reason I had to forsake everything I loved in Seattle and embark on a solitary road trip across the country, with no direction other than searching for the next small town, the next girl, and the closest liquor store.
Boredom, frustration and a series of unfortunate decisions led me to the rickety-ass town of Jolene, Alabama—a town I wanted to leave behind from the moment I passed the welcome sign. But it was there where I met her. The girl who made me question everything I’ve always believed in, and the only one who has ever had the power to break my heart.
Her name is Lexie.
She’s beautiful, and I’m pretty sure she hates me.
And for once in my life, I give enough of a damn that I keep finding a reason to stay.
I'm surprised this book was like winning a place among my favorite romances as the story progressed.
We did not start with the lovely gentleman and weak girl who needs protection. But even leaving aside the romanticism and given in doses necessary.
In this story we have Matt, the rich boy who runs around taking the place called destination without direction. But he did not have that dead end that awaited him on the road, Lexie. A tattooed girl pretty insightful that will not fall on their networks, since she knows how he is from the beginning and not let things be so easy for Matt. Whether that makes you put your world upside down and reflect on the path that has brought all this time.
The two are not perfect, but there is a balance between them that makes the story clearly go forward without spinning nonsense. On the contrary, the evolution of the characters on a soft, clean way imperceptible note.
Team Lexie I like when the players take the strong side despite everything bad that might happen, evolve the conflict and give their best in the situation. And what about Max, I particularly love the evolution of the character is very well done and at the end you wonder how he can win the hearts of our readers.
I loved! Although I took my time to read it, I was successful when the end already had read some of this author but this book felt its evolution in the stories .. It's the kind of book that flows naturally and making your while nice and the final reading that you out a smile.
It is definitely recommended for fans of the romantic genre, and those looking for a different love story and that she paints a path to find a reason to stay..
