//One Good Reason by Julie Johnson//


If you love…
– Sizzling hot chemistry
– Witty Banter
– Alluring sexiness
– Swoon worthy romance
– A mysterious danger lurking in the shadows

… then One Good Reason {Boston Love Story Book 3} is the novel you have been looking for!

**One Good Reason was generously provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.**
First, let me just start out by saying that before you even get to chapter one you fall in love with the book simply because Julie Johnson’s dedications are the absolute best.

“For the lonely girls with big dreams and broken hearts. It gets better.”

I mean… Perfect! Thank you, Julie, for that!

Second, I am in LOVE with this book… and Parker West! I want everyone to read it and fall in love with the story behind the sexy cover. I’ve gone on and on about this novel to my family and friends to the point where, I’m sure, they’ve thought about putting a piece of duct tape over my mouth to shut me up.

…Ooops! *shrugs* But what’s a book nerd to do when she’s just finished the pages of a smoldering hot romantic comedy? Keep that info to herself? I don’t think so!

Julie Johnson’s talents truly shine in her latest novel about a bad-ass hacker, or as the FBI likes to call her “Clover”, and an ultra-sexy playboy that might have more going on behind the womanizing facade he shows the world. One Good Reason holds all of the qualities that I’ve come to adore in the Boston Love Series: the crazy fun loving character crossovers from the pages of Not You It’s Me and Cross The line, book 1 & 2 of the Boston Love Series, the grade A humor, and the pulse pounding passionate romance that only Julie Johnson can deliver, but this time it’s through the eyes of a vigilante.

“I am Boston. Boston is me. And, so help me God, I’m going to take it back from those who’d seek to poison it. That’s not a promise – It’s a vow.”

Zoe Bloom is a hacker, or “Hacktivist” as she would say, that was born and bred in Boston and has spent her life simply surviving, never truly living, with her best friend Luca. After a childhood full of pain and heartache, that still haunts her to this day; she knows frivolous things such as family, friendship, and romance are a luxury she can’t afford. That all changes when Parker West waltzes into her life.

“Don’t you f***ing leave me. Didn’t even know what I was looking for, until I met you, Zoe. I didn’t even think it was possible to feel like this about someone. So stay with me, okay? Stay.”

*heart melts*

Parker West has always spent his life running from family obligation. After having to grow up too fast, he wants nothing more than to relax and LIVE life with as much fun as possible. But when a crisis forces him back to the streets of Boston he has no option but to stay. Temporarily. However after a run in with a mysterious blond he finds himself drawn to her and for the first he has a reason to stay.

When these two share a page they are electric! Not only will the pages of witty banter and sexual innuendos keep you laughing for chapters but the scorching hot chemistry between the two will leave your panties melting, your heart pounding, and you leaning on left elbow, face in palm, with a dreamy look in your eyes.

Like I said before Julie Johnson’s talent truly shines in the third installment of the Boston Love Series. Her ability to go from A+ humor to scenes filled with heart-stopping passion and romance is something that all authors should be envious of and something all readers should experience! The craziest part? She makes it seem like it’s a piece of cake.
Don’t forget to add it to your TBR list and, while it is a standalone, I would definitely recommend reading the first two in the series.
Until next time… ❤

I want visit Boston so bad after reading these books, and so will you! Trust me!

Zoe Bloom has her life figured out.
After a childhood spent begging for scraps on Boston street corners, she’s clawed her way to a successful career and a safe place to call home. She knows exactly what she needs to survive — a bit of money in the bank, a roof over her head, food on the table. Friends and family are a luxury she can’t afford. And forget about frivolous romantic entanglements. She can barely juggle her own problems; she certainly doesn’t have time to handle anyone else’s crap…

Parker West has spent his life running.
From responsibility. From obligation. From the corporate CEO position he’s always been expected to take over. He’d rather climb Kilimanjaro than sit in a board meeting with stiffs in suits. When a crisis at the family company forces him to return to Boston, he has no choice but to stop chasing adventures — temporarily. As soon as things are back in order, he fully intends to sail off into the sunset…
Until he locks eyes with a mysterious blonde who screams trouble and sets his senses on fire. For the first time in his life, Parker doesn’t want to run. In fact, when it comes to Zoe… he may want to do something he’s never done before.

ONE GOOD REASON is a full-length contemporary romance about a girl who’s spent her life just trying to survive… and the man who finally teaches her how to live. Due to some sexy scenes, suspenseful moments, and a foul-mouthed heroine, it is recommended for readers ages 17 and up.
