I thought this book was a good one! I was sucked into the story and couldn’t help but love the characters. Alabama is the main character and I thought she was very likeable and down right gorgeous. When her mother goes into a rehab center, Alabama goes to live her mothers best friend. She isn’t sure what to expect out of the situation but it sure isn’t the two brothers she is quickly developing feeings for! Who will she choose?
I enjoyed this book and I am looking forward to reading more by this author. I would recommend to a friend.

My rating: 5 out of 5 stars

This book is so sweet, heartbreaking, steamy, romantic and dramatic! I loved everything about this book and the characters were all very lovable.

At first I was annoyed that it took so long to figure out the secret between Hunter and Joshua. The story kept intensely building up for me, and I just wanted to know why they were both acting so weird all of the time around Alabama. I was a little peeved that Alabama wouldn’t just come out and tell Joshua she only thought of him as a friend, I know she wasn’t intentionally leading him on.

Alabama, my heart breaks for her. I love her for her bravery to adapt and face whatever is thrown her way. Her mom is a piece of work, and the fact that she gives up her schooling and a better life for herself to take care of her mother is very admirable.

The tension and drama between Hunter and Alabama is insane. I do love them together as a couple and the love they have for each other could weather anything thrown at them. I highly recommend this book, again great story, great characters, wonderful concept and many heartbreaking moments to make for a wonderful book.

This story is a moving love story about a girl called Alabama and Hunter.

Alabama has had a rough start in life and has to go and live with her mums friend, who has 2 sons Joshua and Hunter.

From the start there is attraction from Joshua to Alabama but she feels for him only as a friend, however Hunter is the one she falls for.

Hunter though keeps blowing hot and cold which makes for a confusing situation.

I loved this book, it made me laugh, cry and feel the emotion of both Alabama and Hunter.

Theres arguments, histories are revealed, pain is cause and hearts are broken and mended. But it all comes down to The Reason Why.

The Reason Why by Izzibella Beau is an extremely emotional story that will pull you in and not let go until you’ve finished the story.

Alabama hasn’t had an easy life. It gets a little more difficult when her mom is sent to rehab and she moves in with her mom’s best friend. Things seem to be looking up until Alabama realizes she’s caught between two brothers. Joshua instantly becomes a great friend even though he wants more from Alabama. Hunter doesn’t hide his distaste for Alabama living with them but Alabama can’t help how she feels for him. Will Alabama’s feelings create a rift between the brothers?

I loved this book! I couldn’t put it down. I had a roller coaster of emotions the whole way through. I absolutely recommend this book!!

The Reason Why is a Breathless Series Novel by Izzibella Beau. It is a Young Adult/New Adult story that has a lot going on in it. From the complex characters, wonderful story, and the emotional and touching moments- this story held my attention the whole way through. It’s a descriptively detailed and well-written story that captures all the angst and inner turmoil the character/s are going through.
We meet Alabama, who is 18 years old. She’s had a pretty rough childhood. Her mother is a real piece of work, that’s for sure! So, when her mother has to attend rehab, Alabama goes to live with her mother’s friend, and her two ‘boys’. And so the story takes flight. There is friendship, a bit of a love triangle, self-discovery, coming of age, yearning, drama, and plenty of angst.
I really felt for Alabama and cheered her on from the sidelines. I really wanted her to succeed and get her chance at a HEA. She’s one of those characters that make you want to hug and nurture them. The story itself was a little predictable, but that didn’t detract too much from my enjoyment of it.
So, if you love a good YA story that takes you on an interesting and emotional journey, then this really is the book for you.
I look forward to reading more of this author’s work.

Thank you, Ms. Beau!

18-year-old Alabama has not had an easy start to her life, then her mom is jailed, and she is sent to live with her mom’s old friend Crystal – a lady she knows nothing about and who she has never met. What she finds there is a family she always wanted and lots more. Crystal’s handsome sons Hunter and Joshua both set their eyes on her and she is left wondering should she take her chance with the steady younger brother who has become a good friend to her, or the mysterious aloof older brother who makes her heart race on first sight.
I liked this book and it took me on a real rollercoaster. I felt for the lead character Alabama from the first page and she was a really likeable character. The writer took us on a lovely journey as Alabama discovered herself and how to make friends and create a whole new life outside of the one, she has always known. A fab book and a real escape from reality. Highly recommended.

The Reason Why by Izzibella Beau

Four stars

The Reason Why was a touching love story. You have two teenagers who have different views and different dreams. Bama lives with two guys who happen to love her. One a best friend the other a blooming love. I felt bad that someone was going to be hurt. Love triangles suck and are something I avoid reading about. No matter the outcome on the end. Someone still hurts. I liked Josh he was super sweet. Hunter was a jerk but I understood why he seemed so angry with the world. I couldn’t believe how Bama’s mother acted after she gave up everything to help her. No real parent would do that to the children they love.

“The circle of true love has a beginning and end that never stops. It is one that will always continue throughout the good and bad until each part can meet with the other and become whole again.”

While this story is about young love it is about true love. Izzibella Beau makes you believe in happily ever afters, no matter what your situation is.

I really liked this story. It had an element of suspense…you could feel that something bad or extremely sad was going to happen…FYI…it does happen. But these characters don’t let it end them, they find solutions and make their new situations work. (See quote above!)

Completely recommend this story to mature readers.

The Reason Why by author Izzibella Beau is the story of Alabama, an eighteen-year-old girl who hasn’t had the best early years. Her mother would definitely not be winning any mother of the year awards and because of this Alabama ends up going to live with her mother’s one-time best friend and her children. Alabama is unprepared for her new life, she has spent the past eighteen years pretty much being neglected, as a wanted member of a “normal” family. She is also not prepared for Joshua and Hunter and the feelings she possesses for the brothers.
This is the first book I have read by Izzibella Beau and I can honestly say that I hope it won’t be the last. I enjoyed her writing style and was quickly drawn into the story. I laughed many times and I am not afraid to say that there may have been a tear or two were shed. Throughout the book I rooted for Alabama to be given a shot on a life she deserved; I wish she was real so I could give her a hug! So, in conclusion I would like to say, good job Ms. Beau, you just found yourself a new fan!!

The Reason Why
By Izzibella Beau
Rated 5 stars!!

Wow! Just Wow! I LOVED this book! I literally have chills still going up and down my body after finishing this. I felt everything these character did and laughed, cried and struggled right along with them. To me this is the definition of a great writer. I need to be able to be able to be drawn into a story. Love, hate and identify with the characters. Those are some BIG double checks on all of those for this book. Who couldn’t love these characters? They have heart!

This was written well and I had it read in one day! One Day people! I thought about it at work and couldn’t wait to get back home to see what was going to happen. I loved the secondary characters as well as the main ones. They are heartwarming and I enjoyed meeting that family. I loved how a couple of the MC’s were able to stand their ground for the greater good. Think of others before yourself is a great message. That title! I was curious about it but now I totally get it! It works and fits like a puzzle piece.
This is easily one of my favorite reads of the year!
