Publisher Description

Rebecca Rogers Maher follows up Rolling in the Deep with a sexy and deeply emotional short novel in which unexpected desire leads to surprise beginnings.
Tony Lopez is losing it. Burdened by a broken marriage and a failing business, the divorced father of two young daughters isn’t on his A game when he meets Beth. She’s clearly pregnant and defiantly single: a beautiful, graceful vision that lights a fire somewhere deep beneath Tony’s layers of self-doubt. They connect at his brother’s upstate New York home during a weekend among friends. Except friends don’t feel this kind of chemistry—or want each other so bad it hurts.
Beth Cody has no use for ties that bind. She’s witnessed that kind of wrecking ball. The father of her child isn’t in the picture, and she couldn’t be happier. So when Tony sends her already raging hormones off the chart with his rugged good looks and pent-up sexuality, Beth is thrilled to indulge in a short-term affair, with no strings attached. But one taste isn’t enough. And now that she’s out of her comfort zone, Beth either needs to let go or take a chance on a man who might just be worthy of her love.

Praise for Just Give Me a Reason
“Terrific . . . [a] surprising and very unconventional twenty-first-century romance.”Library Journal (starred review)

“I can feel the sexy. . . . Uninhibited Beth has helped to free Tony of the emotional constraints he’d been willing to live within all his adult life. And Tony likes the rawness and freedom. Sex between them reveals facets of themselves, lets Beth and Tony learn each other in depth but also exposes things to each of them about themselves.”Dear Author
“A sexy romance . . . [Beth and Tony] have nice chemistry and tension together.”Smexy Books
“Charged with intense chemistry, laugh-out-loud moments and flat-out candor.”—TJ Loves to Read

Is one week enough?

Tony, who is recently divorced with two children, finds himself very attracted to his brother’s fiancée’s best friend. While that might not be so bad, the fact that she is pregnant puts a little kink in the situation. Although the timing might not be right, Beth has always wanted children. Because the biological father is out of the picture, which is fine with Beth, she is determined to raise this child on her own. She has no desire to be married or in committed relationship. Hook-ups are ok though. This worked for Tony. Obviously having been burned once, Tony was not ready to make any commitments. As Tony watches Beth play with his children at a barbeque at his brother’s house he feels something come over him. His feelings toward her grow. When the power goes out at Beth’s house during a storm, Holly tells Beth she can stay at their house while they were out of town. A little catch though. Tony is staying in the same house. Even though they try to control their feelings, the more time they spend with each other, the more their feelings or lust grows. They agree after the week is over, they will go back to just being friends. You know how that always turns out? This book was written in alternating POV so you get to “see” what they are thinking/feeling. The story takes place over a short period of time. There is not the insta-love as you see in other books. At this point in their lives Beth and Tony only want one thing and that is sex. And that was ok with them. Tony seems more of an introvert, while Beth more of an extrovert. She is able to draw Tony out of his comfort zone and learn to ask for what he wants. The ending is not what you normally see in other books but it works for these two. Even though this is apparently the second book about the Lopez brothers, I did not feel like I was missing out by not reading book one first.
