New York Times Bestselling Author Lara Adrian's FOR 100 REASONS, the conclusion to the sexy, suspenseful 100 series is releasing today and we couldn't be more excited to share this title with you.


 Love takes no prisoners… Billionaire Dominic Baine stepped into Avery Ross’s life when it was at its lowest. Obsessed with the beautiful, struggling artist, Nick was determined to have her. What began as a scorching seduction soon burned out of control, exploding into a white-hot passion neither of them could deny. Yet Nick and Avery are two damaged people, both haunted by dark secrets with the power to destroy them. And for Nick, the ugly past that shaped him cannot compare to the unforgivable deception that drives Avery from his arms, from his life. Now the man accustomed to having everything he desires must find a way to redeem himself to the only woman he has ever loved. Avery Ross has known heartbreak. She has known betrayal and loss, but nothing like the pain that loving Dominic Baine has brought into her life. Reeling from the aftermath of his devastating revelation, instead of allowing despair to break her, she builds herself into something stronger—the fearless woman and artist Nick’s passion has taught her to be. Yet her heart is in pieces, and despite everything she has, the one thing she needs is the man whose possessive desires and consuming love holds the power to either save them both or shatter her forever…

For 100 Reasons is the culmination of Nick and Avery's story. This story was told in both Dominic's and Avery's POV which I loved because I love getting into the male's brain when all you have heard so far is the female's side of the story.

"Thankfully, none of these people here tonight can see inside me to the terrified, damaged child I once was or the many ugly secrets I had to keep in order to survive."

We finally find out about ALL of Nick's past and what makes him tick. It is an emotional ride for sure because it is painful and tragic and deeply emotional. When we last left these two, I was positive that there was no way they would ever be able to find their way back to each other. Nearly a year has passed and both have given each other a wide berth while moving on with their lives. Avery is finding success in her life and her friendships with others has strengthened. 

In a city as large as NYC you would think there would be no way they could just "bump" into each other. However, the art world is a bit smaller and it was only a matter of time. What will happen when they do finally see each other again? Is there enough trust on both their sides to try and make something work? You see into the mind of Nick as a child and you finally understand all the pain, all the heartache he has survived. Avery has also survived her own pain and heartache. I love strong female characters and while she certainly comes off as wishy-washy through most of the series...she proves her strength in this final book.

Pleasure has a price…
Struggling artist Avery Ross is barely scraping by.

So when she’s offered a temporary housesitting job, she takes it. Living at one of the poshest addresses in Manhattan is like entering a new world—one that catapults her into the orbit of billionaire Dominic Baine, the darkly handsome, arrogantly alpha resident of the building’s penthouse. What begins as a powerful attraction soon explodes into a white-hot passion neither can deny. Yet as scorching as they need for each other is, Avery doesn’t expect Nick’s interest in her to last. Nor does she dare to dream that the desire she feels for this scarred, emotionally remote man could deepen into something real. For Avery has secrets of her own—and a past that could destroy her…and shatter everything she and Nick share.

I used to read Lara Adrian's paranormal books way back and then my "tastes" changed for a bit and sadly I didn't go looking for her books anymore. Imagine my surprise when I realized she didn't just write paranormal but other genres as well. I forgot how much I loved her writing, how much I loved her ability to describe places, things, thoughts and feelings as though I was living it and seeing it. She describes beautifully how a painting can evoke different feelings for the viewer. She does that with this book.

Avery is a broken soul who just wants to be able to live her life as peacefully as she can as an artist. Her life has not been easy and there are things about her that no one knows (even us as readers). She is not looking to strike it rich but to just merely survive as long as she has her art. She soon finds out that her dream may never really happen.

When she meets Nick, she has no idea who he is but she soon finds out that he is so much more than just a pretty face with money. 
There are secrets between these two that may make or break them and neither of them is ready to be part of a couple in the normal sense. However, they can't deny the chemistry that easily pops off the page for all of the readers to see and feel because that is how good the author is at making you feel it. This is the first part of a trilogy and not all the secrets will be revealed but I'm guessing the ride will be worth it.  


Passion knows no bounds…
Avery Ross is living a dream. After struggling all of her life to make ends meet, a change encounter with a powerful, darkly handsome man has catapulted her into a dazzling new world of penthouse luxury, elegant parties, and a wild, consuming passion with her billionaire love, Dominic Baine. Nothing is out of his reach in business or in pleasure, yet the only woman he wants is her. Nick sweeps her to sensual heights she has never dared explore, commanding her body the same way he commands her heat. Yet Avery knows the fantasy she’s living cannot last.
With dark secrets and a dangerous enemy haunting her past, Avery must find a way to trust Nick with the truth before it destroys everything they share. But Nick is harboring secrets of his own as well. And when they come to light, Avery will be forced to decide if the love she feels for Nick is strong enough to endure a betrayal she may never be able to forgive.
