Book Description:


Ian wasn't ready to meet Grace Holtsen. In no way was he prepared for her. But can you ever be ready for fate to step in? Can you ever be ready to meet the one person who will change your entire existence? Ian knew that Grace would change everything he was used to, but something about her made it worth it. For the first time somebody seemed worth the risk. Will Ian jump and let fate wait for him at the bottom? Hoping that it can somehow save him...hoping that Grace can somehow save him.

I don't think Grace is like most girls.
Maybe that's the thing that I can't put my finger on.
Maybe for the first time, I've met a girl that's unlike
anyone that I've ever known.

Grace, a single mother and owner of a Nashville recording company, met Ian Paul, a recent college grad and her new employee. The moment he entered her world, it turned upside down. She knew better than anyone that a relationship with Ian would never work. He was never supposed to fit into her life, and she was never supposed to show up in his. But what happened between them was something more than either of them ever anticipated. Grace was unprepared for how bad it would hurt when they were faced with something far more unexpected.

He stole the rest of my heart tonight. I
know that no matter what happens tomorrow, or days from
now, I’ll never want it back.
I could never give it to someone else.


My Thoughts:
Grace and her friend Nina went the to the only place in Tennessee that the attendants pump their gas. With a little flirting they managed to get the guy there pump her gas. Little did they know, the guy pumping their gas didn't work there but that he was also a new employee of Grace's. Just a bit embarrassed when meeting Ian in the workplace they continue for some time a friendly banter. Grace is a young single mother and hasn't dating in a while and she and Ian seem to hit it off. Things become strained when a an old past comes to light and learns more about someone she lost long ago.

I really enjoyed this book it was sweet. I liked that their relationship wasn't an instant kind of thing. I've read too many books with people having that instant connections where they pretty much profess their undying love for eachother it's cheesy and unbelieveable. I loved that with this relationship they took their time and their relationship felt real and believable. I loved the characters and loved the two best friends Nina and Andrew. They are crazy and supportive and I would've loved to see a story on their side seeing their lives and their relationship. There is a big twist towards the end, because everyone knows things can't stay perfect forever there has to be some type of obstacle for then to get through to strengthen their bond.

Overall I really enjoyed this book and think you readers will too! 4 of 5 stars.
