SYNOPSIS:

WARNING: Author believes in soul mates and insta-love, proceed with caution if you’re not a romantic at heart.

Love’s greatest cure is salvation of one’s soul.

Shane Sherman has a problem. Well, two, actually. One has auburn hair and pale-green eyes, and the other? . . . Is a secret. One he doesn’t want to talk about. But all that changes when Sage comes to town.

Sage Sloan is being stalked. So she runs to Trails End and the bravest man her sister said she’d ever met. Sergeant Shane Sherman.

Sparks fly, tempers flare, and bears misbehave as Shane and Sage find a way to coexist in Trails End. That is, until a killer comes to call. Then all bets are off. Shane isn’t about to lose his saving grace.

This is the third and final book in the Reason Series. I highly recommend you read books one and two before “A Reason To Live.”

Rated R for sexual content and language and M for Maxine.

MY REVIEW

A Reason To Live by C.P. Smith
Shane & Sage
GREAT CONCLUSION TO A MAGNIFICENT SERIES
5 Stars cause 10 wasn’t an option

Holy. Freakin’. Hell. This book knocked me on my ass. CP Smith really outdid herself with this one. From a prologue that grabs you immediately with it’s heart wrenching detail and the thick with emotion story to follow, I fear she’ll have a hard time trying to top this one. It’s THAT good people! This tale of two lost souls wondering through life not sure of their next moves will make you laugh, it’ll make you cry, and somewhere in between, it’ll make your heart leap with vast amounts of emotion.

Sgt. Shane Sherman is struggling with life after war, life after death, and what the future holds for a man who doesn’t seem to think he’s worthy of love or life. He’s bitter, he’s callused, and he’s Trails Ends most eligible headcase… I mean bachelor, lol. He fits in well in Trails End, however he’s in limbo between putting some roots down and being a fly-by-night drifter that works odd jobs, very rarely interacts with his peers, and can’t overlook his past. Enter the beautiful and talented Sage Sloan.

This girl fits in so perfectly in Trails End and into the lives of our awesome “First Family” of the town. Mia and Maxine really take a liking to her immediately and I say what’s not to love with her. Sage is a strong female character lead. She’s a therapist for troubled and abused kids, but taking a bit of a leave due to unsettling threats happening to her lately. She goes to Trails End looking for Sgt. Sherman so that he can help her figure out what’s going on and hopefully solve the mystery of the threats. She gets way more than she bargained for and I’m not just talking about Shane. Holy cowz these women of Trails End are relentless.

Maxine is insistent on Sage hanging around Trails End for a while. She always knows more than we do and can predict more for some reason. That woman makes this story and every other story she’s in that much richer, funnier, and more meaningful. I just love this town and it’s inhabitants. I’m going to beg CP to take me there one day! I’m sad to see that this is the last “Reason” book, but wow… what a book this is to close out one of the most memorable series I’ve ever read.

It’s compelling, it’s emotional, and it’s full to the rim with suspense, wit, and sex appeal. The pacing is perfect, the characters powerful and convincing, and the dialogue flows with ease and felt very natural. The build up to the climax was superb and created the right amount of tension to keep me hanging on every damn word. It’s not light-hearted, but not awfully dark either. It’s the perfect blend of anticipation and hope. I loved it and wish I could read it again for the first time!

Come With Me

Lacy spends her time planning events at a country club. Her latest and greatest project is the big Fourth of July celebration. Fireworks lighting up the sky – Red Hot and Boom! She loves the excitement and the spectacular display of sparkles and heat gives her a thrill. The only problem is… Lacy has never had any fireworks of her own. Despite having to listen to her friends tell of their sexual escapades, she has never experienced the big ‘O’. According to the only man she’s ever given herself to, Lacy is frigid. Is something wrong with her or has she just not met the right man for the job?

Jake is the manager of the golf course at the country club. He’s designing and overseeing a building project and the sight of him shirtless and sweating and flexing…has given Lacy ideas. Jake has a certain reputation of being able to handle almost any task he’s given. Rumors of his sexual prowess are legendary. Now, every time Lacy sees him working with his hands, doing some heavy lifting, his body gleaming with the sheen of exertion – she begins to hope that Jake can give her what no one else ever has.

**Excerpt***

“Might want to do up your jacket,” a strong male voice said beside her.

Lacy froze. This was beginning to be a habit. Yes, when she turned, Jake was right there, leaning against the beige brick wall with his arms folded across his thick chest. “What did you say?” She finally managed to ask.

“Before you go in, you might want to button your coat or you’re going to give everybody a thrill,” Jake said, gesturing with his hand at her open blouse.

Not understanding, Lacy looked down and found her white blouse clinging to her chest, her light green bra very visible through the fabric. Good gravy! “Dang, I’m so sorry.” Lacy squeaked, clasping her small purse in front of her chest. She’d wanted him to see her bra one day, but this wasn’t how she’d envisioned it going down.

Jake chuckled. “Don’t be sorry. I’m not.”

“What’s so funny?” Lacy inquired, embarrassed. After all the things she’d been daydreaming about them doing together, finding herself in a situation like this with Jake was almost more than she could bear.

“You’re gonna need a bigger purse than that,” he said with a wry smile. The teasing and ribbing he’d taken from those three dating service women came to mind. It was clear, if you gave those three an inch, they’d take a mile. And if they’d mentioned Lacy Allen once, her name had come up a dozen times. But they were right, she was cute as a bug.

Humiliated, Lacy was absolutely humiliated. She didn’t have that much contact with Jake, surely not as much as she’d like to have. And here she was, standing in front of him, giving him his very own private wet T-shirt contest. What to do? She wanted to look at him, see his expression. Did he like what he saw? Maybe she should try to get the attention off of herself. Yea, that would be smart. “Too wet to work?” she asked timidly. Hell, she could relate. After fantasizing about the gorgeous man in front of her, her panties were still soaked and she hadn’t even gotten to enjoy what could have been a satisfying finish.

Jake stepped out to the edge of the overhang. “I’ll tell you one thing, I’m from here, grew up in Sabine Parish. And there’s one thing about this place, it can be hot as hell but a storm can come up in a heartbeat.” He stuck his hand out and cupped it, instantly his palm filled with water. “I left as soon as I got out of high school, went to Arizona where it hardly ever rains. But here, rain can come out of nowhere and before you know it, you’re all wet.”
