Reason to Believe by Rebecca Yarros

5 STARS

Release Date: April 26, 2022

SYNOPSIS: “I’ll take them!” That’s what I tell the social worker when my pre-k student and his baby brother need an emergency foster placement. I’ll do anything to keep the brothers from being split up. But my apartment’s flooded and there’s only one house I can take them to on such short notice…his. Knox Daniels, my older brother’s best friend, offers his new place without hesitation. He’s not moving back to our tiny town until next month—that’s when all our hotshot firefighters are returning for their one and only chance to rebuild our fathers’ fallen, iconic crew. It doesn’t matter that I’ve been silently in love with Knox since we were kids. It can’t matter that we pretend that reckless prom night kiss never happened. It won’t matter that my feelings for him could destroy his lifelong friendship with my brother and threaten the certification of their hotshot crew. Because I’ll be out of his house long before he gets back. Except Knox just walked in…a month early. And the icing on this awkward cake? He’s gorgeous as always and I’m covered in baby puke. He takes one look at the boys and tells me we can make this work— We can temporarily fake a relationship to keep them from being separated by the system. Suddenly, everything matters.


REVIEW: This story made me feel all of the freaking emotions! As soon as I read the blurb for this book, I knew I needed to read it. It did not disappoint in any way. Rebecca Yarros is so good at giving the reader an emotional ride between characters. Even when they go through really difficult situations, and don’t handle things well, I’m completely invested in the situation and what’s gonna happen to the characters in this book! I also love a good brother’s best friend romance, and this one definitely was a great example of the trope. Oh, Harper stole my heart. The chemistry between her and Knox from the very first scene we get of them is just so good. Then seeing her care for Liam and Jamie, I just fell absolutely head over heels for her as a main character. Between her taking care of kids, the way the forced proximity happens, and the heart ache they go through, I was 100% in love with the story. I loved all the side characters as well and so I’m really excited to see where the story series goes!!

Release Date: October 6, 2020

SYNOPSIS: If I can keep Hush Note’s leading guitarist, Nixon Winters, on the straight and narrow for the next six months, I’ll finally get my own band to manage—assuming we don’t kill each other first. The egotistical, irritating rock star is fresh out of rehab, but it’s obvious his demons followed him home—and now I’m sleeping down the hall. I’ve watched him self-destruct every summer, and with album deadlines and tour dates looming, I can’t let it happen again. My career is in his hands. But tattoos can’t cover every scar, and I’m starting to see through his trademark, irresistible charm to the damage beneath. Everyone wants the rock star.
I’m falling for the man.
If he doesn’t let me in,
he’ll never break the cycle—
And when these six months are up,
I might be the one left broken.


REVIEW: I knew I needed Nixon’s story, but I had no idea it was gonna be this good! I loved every moment of this book. There was so much emotion. And the connection between the two characters! WOW. I could feel all the chemistry. When we see Nixon in the other two books, we get this little taste of him–the mess he is, but also the hints at how good of a guy he can be. It just made me wonder what was going on with him and what his backstory was. Why is he the way he is? This story definitely delivered! I thoroughly enjoyed seeing Nixon and learning why he struggled every summer. I also fell in love with Zoe Shannon. I mean seriously, she was perfection. I think I just loved how they came together. Something I love about this series is that they all end up in forced proximity within a small town. Small towns are always characters in and of themselves, and it add this element to a Rockstar romance that really enriched the stories for me. It has this impact on the main characters and helps them really get to know each other on a deeper level. Seeing them develop a friendship, as well as a relationship, made me so much more invested in the story.

Can we also talk about the commitment to each other?! I know both Nixon and Zoe are all over the place, but not once was it about cheating. The topic of hooking up with other people comes up, there is worry over it, but it is never a real issue. It was refreshing because I feel like it comes up all the time in rockstar romances, even if it’s a misunderstanding. It just felt different from other rockstar romances I’ve read. And finally there is the epilogue. It made me so freaking happy and was honestly one of the best ones I’ve ever read. Getting all of the characters in one place, especially after reading the whole series, brought me so much joy. It was wonderful and I loved it so much–like the cherry on top of the perfect Sunday. I would definitely recommend this series!!
