Quick Overview:

The “virgin Bachelor” Sean Lowe reveals the challenges of finding love while championing his Christian convictions in the morally complex world of reality TV.

The “virgin Bachelor” Sean Lowe reveals the challenges of finding love while championing his Christian convictions in the morally complex world of reality TV.

After The Bachelorette broke his heart, Sean Lowe suspected his “nice guy” image hurt him. The show never emphasized it, but Sean committed to living according to biblical standards of sexuality, even as producers emphasized the risqué and promiscuous. A Texas boy from a Baptist home, Sean tells the story of how he went from a Division I college football player to a fan favorite on reality television, taking readers behind the scenes of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette to see the challenges of living out his values and faith—and ultimately winning his true love’s heart.

For the Right Reasons is about the journeys we all have to take in the real world, where being “good” is the right thing to do but sometimes doesn’t seem to be enough; where betrayal is commonplace; and where that thing called perfection is actually just a cruel myth. Sean learned a few things from his two seasons on the hottest romance shows on television, and he wants others to benefit from those lessons: good does eventually win, lies will be discovered, and “nice guys” do ultimately finish first.

Review by Leslyn
Overall Rating
Former Bachelor Sean Lowe shares his journey (yes, I used this word on purpose) with his fans in "For the Right Reasons", a memoir that he co-wrote with Nancy French. He talks about his life before the shows, during the shows (obviously), and he also talks about Dancing with the Stars and how it affected his growing relationship with his fiancée.

I think that my absolute favorite thing about this whole book is that he constantly points his readers to Christ- whether he's sharing his testimony or he's talking about leading a devotional for the guys who co-starred with him on The Bachelorette. Sean is not afraid to point out his shortcomings, and his desperate need for Jesus. I think that as a fan and Instagram follower, it's easy to forget that he is human and flawed just like any of us.

Another part that I enjoyed was hearing his perspective of his evolving relationship with his now wife, Catherine. Initially, once the finale aired, I was surprised that they ended up together. However, now that it's all said and done, they are quite possibly the most fun, precious, down-to-earth Bachelor couple ever.

Of course, as a fan of the shows, it was fun to read about behind-the-scenes stuff that we never get to hear about. I obviously don't want to give any of those secrets away because I want you to buy the book and find out for yourself.

This is an easy read that is appropriate for anybody. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, and I highly recommend it! (Posted on 1/26/2015)
