Elle and Dan haven't quite achieved their goal of having sex in every room of their new house--but "almost!"

How do I give a 34 page not-even-a-novella book four stars? Well, let me tell you. I decided to read this while eating lunch and to catch up with Dan and Elle since it would only take a bit. And Megan Hart managed to not only pack five...count them, FIVE smoking hot sex(love) scenes into this story, but I actually teared up twice. I had to stop reading to swallow my food because the lump in my throat was too hard to get past. And once again, the excessive sex was actually NOT was ...more
4 stars...I love Dan Stewart and I love Elle for finally loving him the way he deserves to be loved. These two have so much passion and desire for each other, but there was almost too much sex in this short...did I just say that?! I wish we had gotten a little more story. It would have been nice to have an update on Gavin. Still very satisfying and the last two paragraphs were so sweet and really summed up Elle's feelings for Dan. It really choked me up. This was a nice follow up to Dirty!
Oh, how I love Elle and Dan!

I was extremely excited to find Reason Enough after finishing Dirty; I absolutely loved the first book and, since I can't seem to get enough of this couple, I had to get it right away.

This short addition to Elle and Dan's story is definitely a bit happier and sweeter than it's prequel, showing us how things turned out after that ending, but it really fit the story as a whole. I loved seeing them get their "HEA" and I'm glad Hart still kept it so realistic. It's bitte

OMG!!! and i had no clue there was an epilogue until an awesome woman told me so(thanks Lisa xxx)!! Boy, would i have been disappointed had i missed the brief continuation of Dirty by Megan Hart.

Ok,so you would ask yourself why on earth was i nickle and dimming with the star rating.Well... it was good enough for a 5 star until the last page when it left me craving for perhaps another 10 pages!!! Dont get me wrong Megan H,once again delivered with flawless prose,enchanting subplot,and the realism that often char
Sometimes I'm not sure whether a long drawn out epilogue would live up to my expectation because just being happy with a lot of sex doesn't make up a good read. But Reason Enough really did blew me away with only 45 pages. Damn. Megan Hart is still able to make me feel so much with only a novella. She cramped a few hot sex scene, Elle's inner turmoil on her decision whether to have a child or not and all sorts of emotion running through her in a few short pages.

Dan is amazing as always, isn't h

If you have read Dirty, the story about Dan and Elle, then you should also read this short novella. It's kind of an epilogue to Dirty. Elle and Dan are married now, and Dan would like to have kids. Elle is a bit surprised and can't decide immediately whether she's ready or not. Having children is a big step for her. After all, a woman can be convinced... :)

I'm glad to see Elle again and to know that she's happy and loved. She
Ok I just had to find out what happened to Elle and Dan, so the next installment of their story seemed like a good idea. Just 33 pages long this is a sweet ending to all the emotional upheaval of the main story, Elle and Dan are married and altho Elle still has OCD issues...her counting everything is still there, altho not so bad as in the is alot happier for them both, so now the next big decsion like for many married couples is whether to try for a baby. Dan is pretty much up for i ...more

What's this? A happy book by Megan Hart? One that doesn't make me need a shot of tequila to still my nerves and drown my depression? I love just about everything that Megan Hart writes, but this one was a special indulgence because it reads as an epilogue to her amazing novel, DIRTY. To see Elle and Dan have their Happy Ever After wasn't super steamy hot, but it brought a smile to my face. And that's Reason Enough to buy this book ;)

Dan and Elle are my favorite! I loved hearing more of their story and because I feel that I know them so well I think I know how the next steps and stages in their life will play out. I just love it when I feel I know the characters enough to say that (:
I loved spending more time with Elle and Dan...
It was the perfect epilogue to Dirty!
Very nice ending to Dan & Elle's story, although too much sex for such a short piece.

This is a very short story that gives us an update on the two main characters, Elle and Dan, from the book Dirty. The end of Dirty for Elle and Dan had kind of a "happy for now" sort of feel. So although we were happy for them, it was more of a realistic ending, as opposed to them being blissfully happy and never foreseeing any problems. Then in the book Broken, we get a glimpse at Elle in therapy. Although the book isn't about them, we get some updates on their relationship and how it's going. ...more

Dlouho mi trvalo, než jsem se k téhle krátké novelce dostala, ale nakonec jsem se dostala! Chtěla jsem vědět, co si na mé hrdiny autorka přichystá nového.

Elle a Dan jsou manželé, zvelebují svůj nový dům a ano, snaží se mít sex ve všech místnostech. Jenže když se Dan své manželky zeptá, jestli by si nechtěla založit rodinu, začne Elle váhat. Necítí se být připravená na roli matky. O to víc, když má před očima obrázek své matky, která jí v životě nikdy nijak nepomohla. Ba naopak se stala jen věčně
I 100% needed this little extra visit with Elle and Dan from Dirty. Of the six Megan Hart books I've read to date, they are my two favorite characters. Being able to revisit them and see how their story has progressed was wonderful. I still need more of Elle and Dan, but I'm told they make appearances in other Hart books. (Can't wait!) Great story, definitely worth a read.
After reading Megan Hart's Dirty, I felt I needed more. Thanks to Mahyar (My friend on GR) - told me about this ebook and it is exactly what I needed to help round out the ending of the story.
Elle and Dan get their HEA!!! "Dirty" ended with a "Happyish Ever After," but I was still relatively satisfied. "Reason Enough" is the perfect epilogue for "Dirty" and I couldn't ask for more!

ok that was boring . don't see what the point of a few pages to tell us they got married , had tons more sex and where now talking babies ......
Man this would have been a great book of it was longer! I would have liked to see Dan and Elle develop. And become parents!

Awesome epilogue-style novella - the perfect conclusion to a most beloved book, Dirty.
Lindsay Catari
This was unnecessary in my opinion.. even though I thought the ending in Dirty was kind of rush this short epilogue was nothing.. didn't enlighten us in nothing new on Dan's and Elle's life just that they get married and wanted a child. For me this was how Dirty should have been ended.

That been said.. this was cute and expected.
Cute simple follow up to the first part of Dan and Elle's story. I'm happy that they got their happily ever after :)
Short sexy read....I just love me some Dan and Elle that I had to buy this book as soon as I finished Dirty.
This story only is best f you have become acquainted with Elle and Dan from "Dirty". It was a nice Epilogue to that book.
Carlene Dunbar
very short book but a nice continuation of her first book...dirty...wished it was longer.
Nice short story to tie up loose endings.

This Spice Brief is set after Dirty but I actually read it first the first time round. It says something about Ms. Hart's writing that this 56 page short was able to completely take me in when I hadn't, at that time, read Dirty. It makes more sense, it is true, when one has read Dirty first. And for those who have, there is a lovely Dan and Elle fix for those who didn't quite get enough in the novel. My note on re-read? I love Dan. That is all. :)

El libro en si me encanto y me encanto como llegó al final, pero leer este epilogo hizo que me volviera a enamorar más de los personajes.

Son tan pocas las páginas, pero expresan todo lo necesario para dibujarte una sonrisa y de vez en cuando soltar una carcajada con los comentarios de Dan.

Cabe mencionar, que esta escritora me encanta y aunque solo he leído unos de sus libros, siento que los demás serán algo diferente pero igual que me va a encantar.
Supposedly this is the epilogue to Dirty, though it added very little to Dan and Elle's story, other than to solidify the fact that they have a very active sex life. In case you weren't sure after reading the first book, or maybe you were worried that marriage would slow them down a bit? Nope. Still making like rabbits.
Disappointing. Blah. I expected so much more. I knew from the cover that it was about Elle and Dan talking about having a baby. Well it never really went anywhere. It didn't leave me feeling satisfied.


the ending sucked! I at least thought she would discuss it with Dan or let him know she would say yes. I so wanted to hear what he would say. But nothing....
The sex scenes were good but that was it.
I was very happy to get a glimpse back into the world of Dan and Elle. They will always be one of my favorite Megan Hart couples. I was very touched by Elle emotional journey and her decision whether or not to have children. This was even tougher considering Elle's childhood trauma. A very sweet must read.
