Audio Book Review: Be My Reason by Brooklyn Taylor

I requested this audio book for review on NetGalley. It was listed as a Christian fiction title. It did have a light faith element woven throughout the story and had a slow moving storyline with two characters who had some trust issues.

However, there are two main reasons that I do not feel that I can recommend this story. When reading a clean book or a Christian book, I expect it to be free from bad language and cursing. The main characters let curse words slip out frequently when they were upset. This would have surprised me in a clean novel, but I expect there to be no bad language in a Christian book.

There were no graphic sex scenes in this story, however, the main characters do have a shower scene together while they were still dating. Suddenly they are getting undressed and about to shower together. This would be very surprising to find in clean fiction and not something that I care to find in a Christian fiction story.

I listened to the audio version of the story and I thought that the narrators did a fairly good job. I liked that there was both a woman and a man narrator. That was enjoyable to listen to.

Overall, I personally think this title should be listed as a general market fiction book where some language and premarital sex in a story is not surprising.

I received a complimentary copy of this audio book. All opinions are my own.


Wyatt Galloway has a lot of things going for him in his life, but a woman is not one of them. He is focused on his career as a sheriff, setting his goals high for promotion. He has zero intention of falling in love with a woman, that is until he meets Breigh. Sweetness and beauty are not something he normally falls for, but she has him weak in the knees despite his resistance.

Having had her heart broken, Breigh‘s sworn off men and wants to concentrate on being happy. Career driven and busy, she doesn’t bother with a social life and has given up finding the fairy tale that she’d hoped for.
Until she is in the right place at the wrong time.

Wyatt and Breigh: two people wanting love but insistent on not looking for it until they meet each other.

Will either of them let it in?

Is it worth fighting for when someone tries to take it away?

Can a person you fall for truly be the REASON or just a season?

As a homeschooling mom and avid reader, I get great joy through reading and reviewing books. I focus my reading and my reviews on Christian fiction, primarily Christian romantic fiction. I also review sweet, clean fiction. I hope you will find my reviews helpful in your decisions on what books to read.
