Zoey James is in a funk. She has been through more in her twenty-three years than most people have experienced in their entire lives. After her ex-husband tries to take everything she’s worked so hard for, she makes one rule: Never date someone she works with.
When her father’s newly hired mechanic moves into the apartment above their family-run business, Zoey’s lonely life is flipped upside down.
As a teenager, New Zealand native, Andy Tate’s family is tragically killed in an accident, and he is taken in by his aunt and uncle. Andy is pulled away from the only place he’s ever known as home, and moved halfway around the world to Northern California.
Ten years and one failed marriage later, Andy finds himself living in a new city, with a new job at James Racing, and living in an apartment next door to Zoey, his new boss’s beautiful and damaged daughter.
After an interesting chain of events over one weekend, Andy and Zoey form an unexpected bond. Even though he’s the only one who can get through to her, she will do all that she can to keep him at a distance and not break her one rule.
Will Andy be the reason for Zoey to start living her life again, or will she continue on her downward spiral, until she finally hits rock bottom?
Jen Andrews really knows how to capture her readers attention and hold that attention through out her story. The moment I started reading this book I knew I was going to LOVE it! The two main characters Zoey and Andy are so perfect together, Andy is exactly what Zoey needed after her failed marriage. She is in a horrible state of mind and depression and is avoiding everyone who cares about her, even her family. Andy is able to pull her out of her funk and start getting her life back. That is until her ex finds out and starts making her life miserable again.
This story flowed so easily and the characters were well developed. Jen did a fantastic job with all the mechanic lingo. She either knows a ton about cars or did her homework! This is the first book of the Just Say Yes series. Which should probably tell you there is a huge cliffhanger at the end! I almost whipped my kindle across the room. I’m dying for the next book already and this one was just released a few days ago. The Reason is a MUST READ for sure!
