Dakota McDonald swore after “The Great Homecoming Disaster” that she’d never allow her romantic life to be a plot line in her parents’ HGTV show again. But when the restaurant run by the family of her best friend (and secret crush), Leo, is on the line, Dakota might end up eating her own words.
Leo Matsuda dreams of escaping his small town Arizona life and the suffocating demands of working in his family’s restaurant, but the closer he gets to his goal—thanks to the help of his best friend (and secret crush) Dakota—the more reasons there are for him to stay.
Praise for Every Reason We Shouldn’t
“A rich, emotionally layered story…..Wonderful.” ―NPR

Ok, my HGTV loving self found this book to have such a cute and unique plot. I mean, it’s one thing to have a story surrounding a reality tv show, but make it HGTV and I’m there! It was a cute and fluffy romance too, which honestly my brain needs right now.
This is one of those books that you can pick up and just enjoy reading. I always want to say that books like these are ones you can read without thinking too much, but I don’t want that to sound bad haha! It’s just a book that I can read for fun and not feel as if I have to go out and change the world when I’m done (I guess THAT’s a better way of putting it!).
I found this book to be one that I read very quickly because it was a story (and romance) I was really intrigued by! And I feel as if the characters were a bit more fleshed out than you typically see in a romance, so I really appreciated that as well!
