The Reason I Stay by Patty Maximini
Publication date: September 10th 2014
Genres: New Adult, Romance


Jack Daniels is the cure to all evils.

Sex should be casual and, preferably, anonymous.

Giving a damn is for nurses, philanthropists and suicide hotlines.

My name is Mathew Rogers and those are the values I built my adult life around. They are also the reason I had to forsake everything I loved in Seattle and embark on a solitary road trip across the country, with no direction other than searching for the next small town, the next girl, and the closest liquor store.

Boredom, frustration and a series of unfortunate decisions led me to the rickety-ass town of Jolene, Alabama—a town I wanted to leave behind from the moment I passed the welcome sign. But it was there where I met her. The girl who made me question everything I’ve always believed in, and the only one who has ever had the power to break my heart.

Her name is Lexie.

She’s beautiful, and I’m pretty sure she hates me.

And for once in my life, I give enough of a damn that I keep finding a reason to stay.

Dream Cast

Matt is a rich, big city, unapologetic asshole who prides himself on not caring about things or people. He spends without planning, drinks without thinking and seduces without feeling. To him, the world is a big Mathew party, and he loves it.

Lexie, on the other hand, is a sweet, small town girl who cares a lot about everyone around her. Yes, she has a strong personality and as a general rule takes no bullshit, but she’s also attentive to strangers and willing to put her own life on hold for the sake of those she loves.

In a nutshell, Lexie and Mathew seem like complete opposites, but once they open up to each other, they find that they’re actually more alike than either of them could ever imagine.


Tanie laughs, and raises a brow. “He’s hot.”

“That he is,” I reply.

Jill yells, “Water break,” behind us.

The two girls abandon the ball and run breathless toward us, Matthew trailing behind.

“You, too, Matthew.” She waves him over and, to my absolutely horror, adds, “These gals thought you might be hot. Actually, they both said you were, and by the looks of the sweat in your hair, I think a little water break’ll be good for you.”

“Is that right?” He quirks his lips as he strides casually toward Jill.

His gaze travels from Jill to me to Tanie, and then back to me, where it lingers. I’m at the same time humiliated and dying to roll on my back and laugh until my stomach hurts, but all I can do is stare at him. His eyes are wide and filled with mirth. He stops right in front of me.

“You all think right. I’m really hot.”
