    One thought on “A Reason to Love”

    1. Spencer Lang had a rough war. Now, on his homecoming, he discovers the whole town thinks he is dead. Staring at his own tombstone drives that point home and rattles him. But what brings his anger and bitterness blazing to life is to see the woman he thought he would marry walking down the aisle with one of his best buds. Well so be it, the world went on without him and now he doesn't have a place in it. Or so he thinks. Shy, quiet Melanie Wolfe grew up in a home where family heritage, appearance [...]

    2. I will start this by stating that I love Alexis Morgan's Paladin Series. She is a good writer creating worlds and characters that live in my mind. So why did I rate this book only 2 stars? This book made me very angry. Spencer has come back from the dead. He was captured while serving in Afghanistan and declared dead by the military. He was tortured. We never learn how he was rescued but his recovery in a hospital was not easy. His uncle is told of his rescue but never informed anyone else. Nice [...]

    3. I was lucky enough to get this book ahead of time from the Author in exchange for an honest review.Normally, contemporary romances aren't really my thing. I receive Alexis Morgan's newsletters because I am in love with her fantasy romance series, Warriors of the Mist. I love her writing style so well, I decided I'd give this book a try since she offered the free ARC.The things I didn't like:1. The cursing. Normally, I can handle a little of this, but I did feel it was pretty extravagant. I almos [...]

    4. The synopsis says it all. This is a story of the struggles two people face having to find their own way after devastating losses and end up finding solace, and so much more, in each other’s arms. It is a beautiful story of healing, friendship and love.I really enjoyed the story. Spencer and Melanie are great together and I think the fact that they grew up together helped cement their relationship. I also loved Spencer, Nick and Leif’s scenes where too much testosterone mixed with too much pr [...]

    5. Love this series. Very heartwarming and romantic. Spence comes back from the dead, or so his friends thought. He was a POW, and comes back to find his name on a headstone. His best friends are getting married and he's not sure that they have a place for him anymore.

    6. Review: A Reason to Love by Alexis MorganRating: 4.5 out of 5Disclaimer: I received an advanced copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    7. It was hard to have Spence be so angry when the story started. Once we got past that point it improved a lot. I liked him, and Melanie, and how it all worked it self out, eventually.

    11. A Reason to Love by Alexis Morgan is the 3rd book in her Snowberry Creek series. This is my first book in this series, and it read very well as a standalone.

Melanie is alone in this, as her mother refuses to believe that the company was in dire straits, and doesn [...]

    12. My review cross-posted from Wit and Sin: witandsin/201A Reason to Love is a great mix of heartbreak and hope. Alexis Morgan has woven a tale of two people finding love and home after devastating losses in this third Snowberry Creek novel.Melanie’s family has long been a major employer in Snowberry Creek, but she herself wanted to break free of the restraints her last name put on her.

    13. I received a copy of A Reason to Love from the author for an honest review.I have enjoyed reading Ms. Morgan's books since picking up a copy of Dark Defender when it first came out. Like the books I have read since, A Reason to Love has all of the elements that I have come to expect in an Alexis Morgan book.The first is great characters. Spencer Lang comes back to a hometown that believes he was killed in action. He has issues, but he learns how to deal with them - step by step. He re-learns how [...]

    14. 4.25 stars!A Reason to Love is an emotional story about friendship, finding yourself and moving on. When I found out who the hero was I about fell off my chair and have been waiting anxiously to read this third book in the series. I am happy to say that this book was all that I had hoped for.Melanie Wolfe’s ancestors founded the town of Snowberry Creek many years ago and her family has always been pillars in the community. Along with her mother, they are now the only ones left of the family, h [...]

    15. Snowberry Creek, #3 (5th story, though)Spence Lang & Melanie Wolfe's story.Spence, pronounced Killed in Action, returns to Snowberry Creek. Melanie notices a lone soldier standing at the grave of Spencer Lang & figures it's another troop member in for Nick & Callie's wedding. Imagine her surprise - and pure shock - when the soldier is the subject on the tombstone!------------------------------It's a good book, but a lot of questions were raised while reading it. Like, he's been prono [...]

    16. Snowberry Sweet!I'm new to this author, but I understand a lot of people are coming to this series after reading her other one which is in a completely different genre. As a noob I had no such expectations, and am pleasantly surprised by what I found. These small town/ex military contemporary romances can sometimes be a bit too gentle in their pacing for my liking, but not this one. I really enjoyed the plot and the added complications of everyone in Snowberry Creek believing main character Spen [...]

    17. First I want to thank the author for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for my review. This book was entertaining and more sensual than A Time For Home. It is definitely not a stand alone book as it starts with Spence showing up in Snowberry Creek on the day of Callie and Nick's wedding. If you haven't read A Time For Home first you are at a definite disadvantage.I thought that Melanie was a very likeable heroine. She has been born into wealth but is not a snob, she genuinely cares about [...]

    18. I requested and received a copy of A Reason to Love from the author for an honest review.I loved Ms. Morgan's Paladins series, but hadn't read the other two books from the Snowberry Creek series. I was badI judged the previous books by their covers, which were rather bland to me. So I wasn't sure what to expect when I read this book.And I can honestly say I loved it! (I only wished I had read the other 2 before this one, as apparently his friends thought Spence deceased.) Coming from a military [...]

    19. This is my first book from this author and I’m sure it won’t be my last. This is a standalone novel in a series set in a small community. I haven’t read the previous two novels in the book but that didn’t deter me in reading it. I easily caught up with the character’s stories. Melanie and Spence start off as a romance of convenience but as time flies they grow closer together. They both are going through a really tough time and they use each other for strength. Melanie is my favorite t [...]

    20. A solid 4 to 4 1/2 stars.I just finished A REASON TO LOVE and will be making further visits to Snowberry Creek. Alexis Morgan has a good feel for small towns, neighbors, friends, and current military vets. Her characters feel real and are facing situations any of us could or are facing. I like the natural feel to the relationships and the conversations. One warning for those offended by profanity. The F-bomb is dropped frequently among other things. I don't particularly care for it, but the lang [...]

    21. I've been waiting for the latest (hopefully not last!) book in the series, and it was well worth it! My heart kind of broke at the beginning when Spence returns home from being held as a POW to find his gravestone and the woman he had assumed he would eventually wed marrying one of his best friends. I have to admit that it also lead to my only nitpick; if one of our soldiers had been injured and held prisoner, I would think his being found and returned home would have lead to a huge media storm, [...]

    22. This books was a fast read. I loved the storyline between the main characters. I enjoyed the development of the story and how Melanie was such a caring person though sometimes it felt like maybe she cared too much and put herself last. Spence had returned fromt he Afghanastan war thinking his commards had been killed and the guilt was almost too much to bear. The relationship that developed between Melanie and Spence had its ups and downs as most do. I like reading about small town romances they [...]

    23. Disclaimer: I received an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review. With that said, I totally loved this realistic contemporary romance. School work slowed my reading progress but the fortune was mine because it gave me the opportunity to savor this story of strained homecoming from a war veteran's perspective. Surviving war and its effect on humanity is something every veteran faces. Finding home and happiness after experiencing the worst humanity has to offer, Spencer Lang finds refuge a [...]

    24. A soldier assumed dead is returned home to see his own tombstone. The pieces of his life are shattered.

    25. This is the third book in her Snowberry Creek Series. Melanie has come home to save her faamily's business after the death of her father. Spencer returns home from war a year after his friends and family have buried him. The day he returns his girl is marrying one of his war buddies. Melanie is the first person he runs into when he returns. I loved the strength of Melanie's character. I really liked watching their relationship evolve. Sometimes the plan you made has to make room for a new and im [...]

    26. I requested and received a copy of A Reason to Love from the author. Having read and loved Ms. Morgan’s Paladin and Talion series this poignant story was a change of pace for me. Having never read the series, I was not sure what to expect from it. However, I did enjoy this book. Spencer’s story grabs you from the beginning. Ms. Morgan immediately draws the emotion from you. You feel for this soldier as he stands over his grave.My only complaint would be the story did tend to move somewhat sl [...]

    27. I will admit that when I found out that Alexis Morgan was going to be writing contemporary instead or paranormal I was a little sad. I love her paranormal's so it was something I'd really miss. I'm happy to say that I really fell in love with her new series. A Reason To Love was one of the hardest for me to read in the series. It pulled at my heartstrings and wouldn't let up. Spencer is a character that caught my eye when I first read about him in the novella. He had so much happen to him and he [...]

    28. 4 1/2 STARS -- I have read many books by Alexis Morgan -all her paranormal books and was uncertain about a contempoary book (I guess I am in my paranormal phase, lol) But this contempoary story took me by surprise - it is a great book This is the 3rd book in the series, and stands alone very well- the story of a returning soldier and his struggle and the girl who thought she never had a chance with him. Their strenght together is moving! Although I have not read the first two now I find that I a [...]

    29. I totally loved this book! Alexis Morgan had me at page 1· I love this author paranormal series: Paladians.

Although I am reading out of order, I was able to follow the story quite well. I now intrigued to go back and read the previous books.I loved how the author captured the return soldier's feelings and hardships of returning from war. It was very realistic as well as [...]
