All the Other Reasons by R.J. Lee tells the immersive story of what a real and raw connection looks like, no matter the circumstances or the time that flies by. Dixon has lovingly admired Charlotte for many years, something she would not know until a decade later. Their relationship takes them through real-life problems that not only manage to create tension and obstacles but also help them to understand themselves and deal with their inner issues. Their innate sexual tension will keep you on the edge of your seat the entire length of the book. Real chemistry is hard to ignore, much less find excuses to dampen it. Once they have been together, there is nothing else that matters as much as having each other.

My oh my, I have had my heart in my throat more times than I can count. Since the beginning, I was immediately attracted to the plot and its characters. It took me about 7-8 hours to devour this book in one sitting; I could not keep my eyes off the pages. Several times, I had to cover my eyes to calm myself and try not to get too excited. All the Other Reasons is compelling, well-written, and sensual to its core but remains a passionate, loving, and relatable novel. I loved this novel, a great way to escape real life and enjoy someone else’s life. Most of the time, I kept wishing I was in Charlotte’s shoes and could enjoy Dixon.
