Will You Accept This Final Rose - Review & Giveaway

Review by Melinda Garza
In Sean Lowe's For the Right Reasons, America's favorite bachelor on faith, love, marriage, and why nice guys finish first, he candidly reveals some of the challenges of finding his true love, being true to his faith, of his experiences of being in the ever popular The Bachelorette and The Bachelor, and of life after the show. 

Sean grew up in Texas. Like all boys who grow up in Texas, he was a football player. He wasn't your average football player, he excelled. After high school, Sean went on to play college football. His college football career did not turn into an NFL career. After returning home from college, he had a career that turned sour. Sean's family had a long history of selling insurance but that was the last thing he wanted to do. He ended up selling insurance and through it all, he always prayed and asked for guidance. His faith never steered him wrong. 

One day, his sister and brother in law submitted his name to The Bachelorette. He thought nothing of it when one day he was contacted by the show for additional casting procedures. On his journey to find love with Emily, the bachelorette, he was often called "perfect." Sean talks about the inner workings of the show and how his faith continued to keep him strong. He was blindsided when only two other guys were left on the show and Emily sent him home despite being prepared to be a husband and father. 

Following his stent on The Bachelorette, Sean was then selected to become the next bachelor. Sean goes on to discuss how the show brought him closer to his faith, how his faith continued to evolve, and how he was true to his convictions. Sean was able to find the love of his life, Catherine, on the show. They later wed.

After the show aired, Sean was a contestant on Dancing With The Stars. He managed to stay on the show a rather long time for someone who had no prior dance experience. Sadly, he did not win the season. His relationship with Catherine was rather difficult during that time but due to his faith and her beginning to walk with God again and welcoming Him into her life, they were able to sustain the turbulence they encountered. 

They now live in Texas, continue to expand o
n their faith wholeheartedly, and live happily with their two beloved dogs. 

Sean's honest story about his journey will captivate any reader and will keep you cheering that this "perfect" guy finishes first. I would say he did.
