Grace for the majority of the book deals with the gaping hole left by the death of her best friend, Aaron who she loved more than a friend. Grace's loss is palpable and I wondered if she would ever get over Aaron. I was so happy when she met Chase. Chase had his own demons to deal with though although you could tell how much he liked Grace from the very beginning.
The author carefully constructs this tale and I felt like a bit like I was completing a puzzle as she artfully dropped pieces and filled out the blank spaces in the story and characters. I learned there was more in Grace's and Chase's past that threatened to hijack their future together. There were big reveals along the way that made my head spin and my heart ache. Suffice to say at the end of the book Chase and Grace's love for each other triumphs as they fought their way to their much deserved happy ending.
This emotional read respectfully addresses some tough topics. The teens in the story have faced abuse, abandonment, neglect, and loss. Beneath their normal façade lays a deep well of sadness and regret. It is safe to say there is a message of not understanding someone until you’ve walked in his shoes.
I didn’t anticipate the plot twists, and they provided an interesting story culmination. In the end, Grace and Chase really do need one another in order to survive (you’ll have to read the book to find out how they help one another). Overall, this sad tale is about not just dealing with loss but also forgiveness and moving on.
Grace Delaney didn't have an easy life. Her mother took off and left her and her father. Grace's father works mostly out of town for weeks at a time. She didn't have any friends. Then, Aaron Wheeler walked into her life. They became best friends. Aaron said she was his sister. She became like a daughter to his parents. She'd stay with them when her father was away.
Grace and Aaron were planning on going to college together. Grace planned on telling Aaron how she really felt about him. But, Aaron was in a car accident and passed away before Grace got the chance. Grace went into a depression after loosing Aaron. Aaron's parents and her father try to help her. She wasn't going to go to college without him. Then, Aaron showed up encouraging her to go.
Grace goes to college and runs into Chase Ryder. He's from her town. Grace heard of Chase but didn't know of him. She only knows he went to juvi, but doesn't know exactly why. Chase insists he wants to be friends with Grace. Chase finds himself drawn to her and the need to protect Grace. Chase himself didn't have a good childhood. He'd do anything to forget it.
After Aaron passed away Grace didn't think she'd ever love again. But, she finds herself falling for Chase. Whenever Grace needs advice or needs to talk to someone who really knows her, Aaron comes to her. She knows he's not real. But, Grace will take as much time with Aaron that she can.
Just when Grace was finding some peace and a routine in her life. Her feelings for Chase have grown. Somebody from her past comes back. Grace has only trusted Aaron with the truth. Grace must learn to trust Chase for them to work. But, then Chase's past comes back and Grace doesn't know if she can forgive him.
This book was beautiful. You'd never know that this is TJ Rudolph's debut book. The way she wrote this story. I was bawling from the very beginning until the very end. 5 stars aren't enough. I can not wait from more from TJ Rudolph.
“I knew he would take my heart and rip it to shreds.”
Saved by Grace was like taking a breath of fresh air. I have forgotten how much of an impact a good YA Romance can have on me. Throughout this story we are given pain, sadness, love and happiness with a side of suspense.
“I had enough heartbreak to last me a lifetime.”
Grace is 17 when a tragic accident happens and leaves her beyond heartbroken. I felt her pain through the pages and wished I could take it all away. She has know too much heartache in her young years but continues to put one foot in front of the other.
Chase...god I fell hard for him. He is beautiful, mysterious and damaged but his heart shines brighter with each turn of the page. Both characters do not trust easily and are broken. Together can they mend to become whole?
“Grace, I am no good for you. I don’t want to hurt you; you don’t deserve to be around someone like me.”
This story caught me by surprise and it is one that I will read again. I recommend this book you are looking for an emotional read that will pull on your heartstrings while giving you hope.
“You have it all wrong, Grace, you are the one who saved me.”
