His Reason to Stay by Cathryn Fox"They made one beautiful mistake. The consequences could haunt them for life."

"In the Line of Duty," Book 6

From the moment the Nelson brothers took a lonely young girl from the wrong side of the tracks under their wing, Rachel Andrews loved them both with all her heart. But it was James who won her hand.

Now widowed, she s trying to pick up the pieces for her daughter s sake as well as her own, but once again loneliness is her closest friend until James s brother comes back to town. The man she secretly wishes had asked her first.

Army ammunitions expert Kyle Nelson would rather face live fire than face the raw reminder that the woman he loved chose his brother over him, but he s tired of running. And ready to step up to be the man everyone needs him to be especially the young niece he s never met.

As time runs short before Kyle ships out again, the desire Kyle and Rachel have suppressed breaks free in a fiery rush. Tempting her to reveal a secret that could give him a reason to stay or burn their love to ash.

"Warning: Contains a hot military man who will steal your panties as well as your heart.""
     How do you tell your heart who to love and to what degree?  Well that is the problem facing Rachel Andrews (Nelson) you see she was a girl from the wrong side of the track.  She was lonely young and shy girl.  Her friend Sara introduced her to the Nelson brothers James the elder brother and Kyle.
     They were instant friends from day one they did everything together.  By James and Rachel’s senior year Rachel was starting to feel mixed emotions for the brothers.  She started hanging out more with Kyle though.  They went to the drive-in, watched chick-flicks, and went out to the bluffs.  He just used to be so in tuned with her.
     But toward the end of school James started taking her out on dates.  Just kind of assumed it was the natural progression.  Then he was off to Harvard.  They didn’t break up but they did see much of each other.  Kyle seemed happy for them but it was truly killing him inside.  Kyle only ever wanted the best for James even at his own expense no matter what he had to give up. 
     When Kyle’s senior year starts he doesn’t tell anyone but he enlist before the school year ends by joining the Army.  Not saying goodbye to Rachel.  She was heartbroken.  After 4 months at Harvard and about the same time in the Army both come home to Rachel.  One the same day.  James decides to ask for her hand in marriage.  When asked she looks to Kyle as if waiting for an objection or something anything.  At first he is sitting ramrod straight arms crossed.  Then he nods yes, slightly, sits back relaxed making it her cue that he didn’t want her the way she wanted him.  So Rachel accepted James proposal.
     Those wedding plans and details took their toll on Rachel because the guy’s mother disliked her.  Mainly for coming from the wrong side of the street. She hi-jacks the wedding.  The final straw was the honeymoon that James said he wanted and was excited about going on which was for Hawaii.  His mother says otherwise and he is jumping ship.  Plus he wasn’t even defending her to his mother so she throws the ring at him and calls off the wedding.  Runs to Kyle who’s in town for the wedding.  They end up at the bluffs.  One thing leads to another.
     Kyle can’t take the guilt so he takes her right back to James and gets them squared away and back together.  Then he talks to his mother to get her squared away and out of their business too.  Then its two years before she sees him again.  Why?  She sees him at James’s funeral.

     I really enjoyed this book the dynamics of Kyle and Ava are just the sweetest.  Kyle did need a love tap upside the head his belly aching was driving me crazy at some points.  Loved Ren too, Kyle’s dad, very wise man.  I give this 5 stars.  Provided by netgalley.com.  Follow us at:  www.1rad-readerreviews.com.
