and refuses to play by anyone else’s rules.
A life will be lost.
Lies will be told.
Hearts will be broken.
And secrets...well secrets are meant to be revealed.
Is there anyone she can trust?



I absolutely loved this book! The author has crafted an enticing story that is sure to draw the reader in from the first page and you’ll find that you’ll be unable to put the book down until you have to read every last word. The storyline is solid & interesting and the characters are captivating & likable. 

This new adult romance is set on a college campus and has all of the things that you expect among the college such as sorority sisters, parties, dorm mates, and the potential for finding love. I adored Sophia as I really liked her personality and would love to have her as someone in my corner. She tries to navigate the college experience all while dealing with a roommate/sorority girl who isn’t exactly the nicest person around. Chase is a character that you’ll both love and hate in that he is constantly going back-and-forth with his emotions and interactions with Sophia. When you find out why, you will forgive him. The book not only has romance & some steamy encounters, but it also has a dash of suspense. There’s an underlying mystery which I found entertaining and the twist was also unexpected.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book for its well executed story, it’s engaging characters, and this author’s beautiful writing style. You’re The Reason is perhaps one of my favorite books by this author, although I feel like I say that after each one of her new releases. 

J. Nathan is the author of new adult, sports, and rock star romances with cocky heroes and sassy heroines. When she's not writing, she's a crazy soccer and baseball mom and a total romance junkie! She loves watermelon margaritas, guys in backward hats, country music, the summertime, and her amazing family and friends.
