Summary:

Grace Elliot is falling apart. Overwhelming tragedy has turned her world into a dark and lonely place. Facing the pain and the ghosts is impossible. Hiding her secret behind a mask of confidence and living a lie is the only thing she knows how to do. She’s alive…but not living.

Counsellor Ben Hardy is certain he can help Grace heal. Maybe it’s a way to rid himself of the demons haunting him from that one horrific night when his life shattered.

When they meet, everything changes, and their pasts offer them a remedy to save each other…until Ben's traumatic history threatens to destroy the trust they’ve built.

Will the truth tear them apart? Or will it force them to understand the healing power of forgiveness and love.

My Review:

Intro Babble-I am not going to lie. I did not know what to expect from this one. I glimpsed at the opening scene when I downloaded the book and I knew it was going to be a difficult one. Not in a bad read kind of way but in a 'oh boy...the angst" kind of way. And it lived up to every single one of my expectations but it was just...so good.

Characters

Heroine: Grace--Aside from the fact that this is a namesake book...which I greatly appreciate...I loved Grace. I did. She starts the book so very broken but she comes into her own gradually throughout the book. Her story was stomp on your heart sad but the strength in her journey was amazing and admirable.

Hero: Ben-I usually like the rakes, the bad boys...and Ben was so far from that. He was a sweetie-pie. A genuinely good dude who has had some not nice things happen to him but has maintained his kindness and goodguyitude. And oh boy did I love him. I've been liking quite a few nice guy heroes lately. Perhaps, I should rethink the rakes for a bit?

Chemistry-I just wanted to bottle up Ben and Grace and keep them with me forever. They were sweet and a bit angsty. They both had such tragic backstories that I thought their story together could potentially get muddled but it never did. Their pasts only helped to enhance their connection.

Chemistry Rating:

Ending Babble: I think I was a bit in love with this book from the first page. The book opens with a rather visceral flashback and as scary as it is, it gripes you and drags you right into the story. I made an immediate connection to Grace and I kept reading because I wanted to see her end up happy. I wanted to see them both end up happy. I also very rarely enjoy alternating perspectives but I did in this case because Harper was able to capture both voices so well.
