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 chemistryor 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 . . .
