    4.5 stars- Bring on the happy

    I didn’t know what to expect when I signed up to review this audiobook. I hadn’t previously read anything by the author, but saw some of my Goodreads friends really enjoyed it and was intrigued by the Australian narrator. By the time I was a third of the way through, I was recommending it to others. You Are the Reason made me repeatedly smile, sigh, and laugh. It’s the perfect choice if you’re looking for something lighter with good character development but low angst. Upon first meeting Davo, I wasn’t sold on his character. He had a causal, friendly vibe that appealed and I liked his sense of humor. However, he was so anti all things femme and wore his reproach like a badge of honor that I couldn’t quite like him. This ended up being a prime set-up to a major character overhaul that lasted much of the book. While this book included the story of Davo and Lee’s romance, it more precisely followed Davo as new people and experiences in his life forced him to evaluate his discomfort with anything he deemed too femme, stereotypically “gay”, and pink. I really liked the way Miss Kaye approached his character and developed his personality steadily. Over the course of the book the reader learns the details as to why Davo has these assertions, and I was surprisingly empathetic to his character considering how much I initially balked at his negativity. I think this was helped in part with how quickly Davo acknowledged his shortcomings and became committed to changing for the better, never blaming others or trying to insist they change to make him more comfortable. I also really liked Lee. The story is entirely from Davo’s point of view, so the reader doesn’t get to know Lee quite as intimately, but his character did have a good amount of depth and I found his personality interesting and completely charming. I absolutely loved Davo and Lee together. They were sweet, supportive of one another, sexy, and most of all funny. Davo’s reactions were so honest to a young man who never imagined himself helping with a friend’s baby or in a committed relationship, and even if the thoughts and situations bordered on the ridiculous at times, they were completely relatable. The narrator worked perfectly with this book, reading with emotion that brought the characters and scenes to life. If you’re a fan of audiobooks, I’d definitely consider listening to this book. Between his accent and delivery, Dave Gillies enhances Miss Kaye’s book and offers a very good performance. I utterly enjoyed You Are the Reason. I laughed a lot. And when I wasn’t laughing, I was smiling because the main and secondary characters and their interactions were fantastic. When I started this audiobook, I hoped I would enjoy it based on the reviews, but I really hadn’t anticipated it being so funny and charming. I’ll definitely look for more from this author and go back to read the first of the series. *Reviewed audiobook for Alpha Book Club*

    A Good Read

    A cute continuation of the Tav series. I wasn't as into it as the first, but it's a book where repeat reads have made it grow on me more each time. I loved Davo coming into his own and becoming more accepting, and the whole moth thing was great. I recommend this author to all.
