As their relationship progresses we don't have a ton of the typical plot devices that authors like to use in romances. There are no giant misunderstandings, and the few smaller issues we see get resolved quickly. They aren't left to fester for weeks or months. There are a few jealous rivals thrown in the mix, but none of them derail their relationship for more than a couple pages. These two act like how mature adults would act in real life. They have issues trusting, get in fights, get mad at each other, but eventually make up and learn from their mistakes to build their relationship. It's so refreshing to have an author just give us a great story. I cannot wait until book 3.
Overall Rating: 3.5 stars- Worth a few minutes before bedtime.
I’m not going to go on and on. I love Katie Graykowski’s writing but even my favorite authors have a miss sometimes. I wouldn’t go quite THAT far with this one, but it just didn’t give me that man-I-loved-that feeling that most of her writing does. The characters are all completely lovable, but the plot just left me underwhelmed.
If you choose to read Saving Grace, you need to start it with a good dose of suspended disbelief. We have a broke and embarrassed street performer (Grace) saving the neck of an idiot teenager. (That part? Totally believable. Why are we all idiots as teenagers?) But of course, the idiot teenager belongs to a rich guy named Chord and you can guess the rest.
“Yes, I want to date you. I want to get dressed up and take you out on the town – no kids allowed. I want to go to cocktail parties with you and benefits and text you a million times a day and call you up to see what you’re doing even though I only saw you ten minutes ago. You know. . . sappy boyfriend crap.”
Saving Grace felt like a mix of Little Orphan Annie, The Sound of Music, and The Three Stooges. While I like all three of those things, together the outlandish nature of everything (the neurotic dog really put it over the top for me) just didn’t work for me.
It was a light, not-unpleasant read, but just not appointment reading like my previous experience with Katie’s books.
“You’re my life. . . my everything. You’re the other half of the soul.”
Smut Factor: 3 stars- Not Bad
Character likability: 4 stars- I wish we were friends.
Storytelling: 3 stars- It could happen
Writing and editing quality: 3 stars – A few errors, but nothing that took away from the story.
"Maybe after I take a nap, this will all make sense. Right now, I feel like I'm living in a sitcom."
"I hope it's Psych. I love that show. I can't believe it ended."
"If any more of the offensive line shows up, don't feed them or they'll never leave. They're worse than cats."
There's such a sweet romance going on, even when Chord is being an arrogant PITA, he's hilarious. The banter between him & Grace, and w/ the kids, and also a huge mountain of a dog who is scared of EVERYTHING (the color purple! water - ANY water!) - it's all so well done, this quickly became a favorite story. I will look into the other books in the series, because I enjoyed this one so much!
