Finding My Reason by Claudia Burgoa Release Day/Review


Finding My Reason by Claudia Burgoa

Cover Design: By Hang Le

Release Date: October 19, 2016




It was only supposed to be a one night stand at a wedding.

I was supposed to have fun and move on.

But she infused my life with light and laughter.

Now I can’t breathe at the thought of her ever being out of my life.

Being apart from her suffocates me.

We agreed to stay together, until we didn’t make each other happy.

I wasn’t afraid of and, I was afraid but. But what if I’m not enough for her to stay?



I met this guy I really wanted to kiss.

I thought he was going to be just a crush who became my dream boy.

A perfect, delusional dream I would keep in my heart until I had my life in order.

He made me feel like I could take over the world.

I wasn’t supposed to fall in love.

We agreed to stay together, until one of us wanted something different.

I wasn’t scared of but, I was scared of and. And what if he leaves?


And our fairy tale came to an end.

But did it have to end or can we find a reason to stay?


The cover is what drew me in with this book. Then I read the synopsis and I knew I had to read this book.

The beginning of this book had me laughing! Hudson’s best man speech was shocking and funny! Omg… that story he told! I would have killed him if he would have given that speech at my wedding. But that showed me what kind of personality Hudson had. And I loved it! He was so funny and carefree.
It set the tone of this book for me. And I knew I was in for a wild ride with Hudson.

This book was such a roller coaster ride. There was so many twists and turns. It had my head spinning. Oh and the tears! I couldn’t stop the flow of tears falling down. Both characters had deep issues about their childhood. That never quite went away in their adult life.

Both main characters were flawed. I both loved and hated them. But I think Hudson was more messed up. I would just fall in love with him. Then he would open his mouth and I just hated him. The things he would say… ughhh
I just wanted to slap him.

Jade and all the time she spent away from her hometown knowing she had someone that wanted more with her… was hard to swallow.
A good chunk the book was spent with them apart. I hated that.

More towards the end of the book I would say I was wondering how things were going to be played out. Hudson got himself into a big old mess. My heart was breaking for Jade.
Hudson really worked hard to get himself out of it.

There was one character I hated with a passion and it was Hudson’s sister Jenna! Omg… did I hate her. She was a major B!
I also hated Adriana. That girl was crazy.

Overall… this book was a nice surprise. I couldn’t put it down.

About the Author

Born on the mystical day of October 30th in the not so mystical lands of Mexico City, Claudia grew up with a childhood that resembled a caffeine-injected soap opera. Seventeen years ago she ventured to the lands of her techie husband—a.k.a. the U.S.—with their offspring to start a new adventure.

She now lives in Colorado working as a CFO for a small IT company, managing her household filled with three confused dogs, said nerd husband, two daughters wrought with fandoms and a son who thinks he’s the boss of the house. To survive she works continually to find purpose for the voices flitting through her head, plus she consumes high quantities of chocolate to keep the last threads of sanity intact.
