Vivienne Callahan has known only hardship. As if growing up with an alcoholic, drug addicted mother wasn’t traumatic enough, she’s escaped from her physically and verbally abusive boyfriend only to struggle every day to make ends meet as a waitress in a Minneapolis diner.

Along comes Mikah Blake, a handsome stranger who quickly takes an unexpected and persistent interest in her. On the surface, “Mr. Suit” seems to be Vivienne’s opposite: rich, well-fed, successful. As Vivienne will learn, Mikah is more than he seems, and for reasons unknown, he’s determined to be her knight in shining armor. But after having finally found her own two feet after years of abuse,  it’s difficult for her to accept Mikah’s help.

Will her body’s unexpected response to Mikah’s touch be reason enough to overcome her pride and traumatic past and learn to love and trust? Or will her past, refusing to be left behind, come back to claim her?


My Review:

Give Me Reason” is a bit of an emotional roller coaster ride….with twists and turns along the way, but it captivated me from the first page and I couldn’t put it down! And it leaves you wanting and needing the next book ASAP!!!

It tells the tale of a resilient young woman called Vivienne Callahan who is working in a diner as a low paid waitress, trying to survive life all on her own in very poor conditions whilst secretly carrying a baby! She has had a rough life to say the least – after surviving her childhood growing up with a mother who was an alcoholic & drug addict, she is then nearly beaten to death by her ex-boyfriend, Riley, when she tries to inform him she’s pregnant! Then one day at work out of the blue enters a tall, dark, well dressed and good looking young man called Mikah Blake – who is rich, successful and owns his own company. From the moment they meet each other they both experience an over-powering reaction…. From that moment on Mikah tries his utmost to get to know, help and care for Vivienne but she is naturally distrusting of him and with her situation in life pushes him away but he continues from a distance! The story ends with the ex-boyfriend Riley getting out of jail and finding Vivienne….what a cliff hanger … Bring on the 19th Nov. 2013 for the next book in this series, “Give me Hope“, to find out what happens!!!

Hats off to the Author Zoey Derrick for producing such an unforgettable and well written novel, it is an impressive must read!
