A Reason to Live by CP Smith
Genre: Romantic Suspense with a TWIST
Editor: Julia Goda
Release Date: 2.21.2016
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 Where has this author been and why haven't I heard of her?
Totally new author to me and loved how I was pulled into the story from the get go. The very first chapter literally grabbed me and did not let me go until I read "The End". This author made me feel all the emotions that she was going on in the story.
Shane feels so much guilt that he's just going through the motions of living. His friends want to help him but he just blows them off. He helps everybody but he won't let anyone help him.
Then when Sage comes to town, the guilt is even worse. She needs his help though; unfortunately he wants nothing to do with her. He sees her as a reminder and his guilt gets even worse. She's ready to give up and leave but Shane just can't let her leave even when he's the one saying you need to go.
"You could have breathed me in, even when it hurts to breathe, and I would have helped you heal." "That's what I would have given to you if you'd been brave enough to try." If I could make teasers I would have made them for those words right there. Made my heart hurt.
Shane can be a sweet talker when he wants to be. Especially when he says "All I see now is you." That whole paragraph....sigh....Sweet talker, I'm telling you.
Maxine, (Max's mom) oh my gosh! This woman had me laughing out loud at several different times while reading this book. She is a hoot! Passion Princess Party I swear I about choked when I read this!
The things that the girls get into is a riot! Cracked me up! Then the way that their men handle them, yeah, they know how to handle their women!
I got to meet Shane's friends and family. There was Max and Mia, Jack and Jenn and I also met Gregor who wants Maxine. I can't wait to go back to the beginning of this series and read their stories! I'm sure they're as funny, sweet,and hot and will suck me into their stories as well as this one did.
