This could have been a five star I just feel it was missing the wow factor. I'm really looking forward to reading the next one!!
I would definitely recommend this book to other readers.
How happy was I to find that I really loved this story. I took a risk and it paid off. I loved Grace! I found I had a lot in common with her, "Yes, I like football. I'd always felt a little insulted when guys presumed I didn't like sports just because I was female." (Meanwhile I am writing this review while watching the NFC Championship game.) So, J.M. Hill wrote a female lead who knew football, and was a Yankee fan...I can overlook the fact that she was a USC fan (as I'm an Irish fan) and a Broncos fan because she was in Colorado, and be totally sold on the chick that loves sports and quotes The Replacements "Pain heals. Chicks dig scars. Glory lasts forever." I was in love. Also, Grace loves books, ummm...is it possible that she is my best friend soul-mate? She is one of those characters I wish was real so I could be friends with her.
On top of that, there is not one, not two, but THREE hot guys that are all amazing in personality as well. WHAT IS NOT TO LOVE?!?
Oh, the crazy girl - yeah I guess I didn't love her so much!
There is so much love and loss that has happened in the lives of all of the characters in this book. And even though they have every right to be angry and/or bitter, they've found a way to be thankful for what they do have. I found this to be the best quote to fit that, "I wanted to comfort him in some way, but I knew when you've lost someone you love, comfort was difficult to find. It doesn't matter if it's one year or eight, the heartache is always there."
I read this book in one sitting because I could not put it down. I will definitely be waiting to read the next book, Garrett's story because I absolutely adored him.
I also want to love J.M. Hill a little extra for sending the Jets to the Superbowl in this book...it may not ever happen in my lifetime but I actually did let out a little cheer when I read it. :)
Enter the new neighbors, the Anderson brothers. Um, hello! You knew from the start that these boys were going to fall for these girls and vice versa. I absolutely adore Garrett; he couldn't be any sweeter, and I found myself rooting for Grace to end up with him, especially after she confessed her feelings to Michael and he was basically speechless. I was like "Ditch him and get with Garrett!" Alas, Garrett turns out to be the best big brother Grace could ever have.
I won't give away the story, but eventually psycho, jealous Nina, a client of the Anderson's, starts to cause trouble in a big way. I did not expect what happened in the coffee shop! I didn't think things would escalate with her that quickly. And then, toward the end, I was happy that Grace found it within herself to fight back, physically and mentally.
While I enjoyed the story, what kept this a 3.5 star for me was the repetitive nature of the plot progression. It got to the point of where I could predict the order of events of each day. Grace would wake, run, eat, do dishes, eat again, do laundry, and watch a movie. I guess I feel that a few of these scenes were necessary, not all of them. The author did a good job of making me like the characters so quickly that I didn't need to know their day in and day out activities; I understood their bond. The other thing that seemed a little off to me was the way the book ended. I felt like it did just that, like it cut off in the middle of a chapter. The lack of sex or cursing didn't bother me as I've read in other reviews. I actually found it refreshing, although I did expect a "fade to black" moment once Grace and Michael get together.
Overall, I enjoyed this book and I look forward to reading JM Hill's next about Garrett! I just want to hug that guy.
