This review is from: Give Me Reason: Reason Series #1 (The Reason Series) (Kindle Edition)
I started Give Me Reason with a certain amount of trepidation, concerned if a woman who had escaped from such an abusive relationship would be so quick to befriend a single man. However, Zoe Derrick does make this plot work and yes this book is only 111 pages long, but there was no way I was putting my Kindle down!
Viv is a very difficult character, she has suffered throughout her life and is naturally cautious and abrasive but as a reader we cannot fail to see past her daily exertion and poverty.
Zoey Derrick's first description of Mikah gives indications as to his true identity but then this is never referred to again, and he just becomes a man who is willing to help a woman in need.
I like the way in which Zoey Derrick does not try to rush the relationship between Mikah and Vivienne despite the chemistry between them which obviously exists, and she clearly communicates Viv's hesitance because of her past.
Give Me Reason has a beautiful cover which I am not convinced anybody can resist, but be warned 111 pages can be read quickly, and Zoey Derrick finishes with one hell of a cliffhanger! I am now anticipating reading Give Me Hope which I review later this month.
