[Book Tour] Review & Giveaway: Reason and Romance by Jenn Young


Reason and Romance
Release Date: 12/09/14
Book Summary:
Being stuck in the godforsaken desert is Adrian Blake’s worst nightmare come true. Senior year is all about making fun memories. It’s not about starting over at a new school and navigating a new Brady Bunch family. It’s really not about living with a sexy, arrogant would-be stepbrother who knows how to push her buttons.
Alex Montgomery is the very definition of a player. The only thing he commits to is a one night stand. He’s exactly the kind of guy she hates­. When she sleeps with him, it’s the biggest mistake of her life. Now she can’t stop thinking about him. Not at school. Not at home.

Sometimes the best mistakes are the ones that you make over and over again…


How do I start? As I was reading Reason and Romance, let's just say there's too much cliche and drama going on. I'm not a fan of cliches but it fitted this book. I loved and hated it but the story got really interesting to the point I couldn't stop reading it till the end. 

The characters, let's just say despite cliche personalities, I loved them even Quentin. Each of their personalities clicked with one another and they so they made an interesting group of people. 

There's a lot of drama going on Adrian's life. Living her home, friends, and the life she knew back then to go to Arizona since her father met someone. Of course, her soon to be stepmother has three sons. I won't bore you with details but there's instant chemistry between Adrian and Alex. And like the summary stated she couldn't stop thinking about him once she slept with him. With all the drama going on there's a love/hate relationship between the two and I actually felt for Alex because I had a feeling Adrian jumped to the wrong conclusion on what he really wanted to convey to her but with Adrian's past haunting her she made the wrong decision in return Alex retaliated with the way he only knows best. Of course, Adrian realizing her mistake, made another decision which kind of made the situation worst between them even with the help of Alex's friends on her side. 

I was looking forward to how the ending would go. I was like a few pages left and imagine my surprise when it ended in a cliffhanger and the sequel would be coming out in 2015. I don't mind reading cliffhangers but I wished that there was a warning that it won't end in an HEA. 2015 can't get here soon enough. Well, I'll be watching out for the next book in this series. I also hope the other characters get their own story. They are an interesting bunch.

If you want to read a fast pace young adult romance without minding the typical cliches and dramas. This is the book for you.

But be warned the ending is a cliffhanger. Read at your own peril especially if you enjoyed reading it like I did.
