Yes, it is, Grace.
Someone Like You by Brittney Sahin — SLY to fans — is SO good!
A book I can slip inside, gobble up like comfort food, and snuggle.
“There’s a hint of Southern that drifts from his speech, but it’s like a quick kiss caressing his words, rather than a deep love affair.”
Noah’s devotion and honesty aren’t qualities Brittney Sahin simply tells the reader about. She shows us. In the way Noah calls out the word “Wait” to his estranged wife, in the way he presses two fingers to the screen of his laptop when saying goodbye to his daughter on chat. It’s even in the way he attempts to enter the singles scene in New York.
And then he sees Grace. “There’s something between us—something I don’t remember feeling for a long time.” And her name is beautiful by the way. It suits her perfectly. A woman with money, and the only daughter in a family with power. She seems worlds away from a man like Noah who served in the military and now moonlights as a construction worker.
But sometimes two worlds collide. And sometimes the differences we think pull us apart, are the very things that bring us together.
Grace has fears, some faraway and in her nightmares, and others part of the ocean and just as deep. “Sometimes what’s beneath the surface is worth getting to know.” And she’s been bred to be a lady of society — a place where it’s more acceptable to have an adulterous affair than a romance with a blue-collar worker — and expected to marry off the way Linus Larrabee wanted his brother, David, to do in the movie Sabrina. But poor Audrey Hepburn didn’t want to marry William Holden. She wanted Humphrey Bogart.
Grace has to learn this lesson the hard way. She’s grown accustomed to denying her heart — “one moment is all I can have. The need to feel something deep, or even enjoyable, is off-limits for me.” — and has begun to doubt its very existence.
“I did have dreams, didn’t I?” Grace wonders. It’s Noah who helps her find her way back to them.
But along the way, Noah has his own war to wage, and it turns out it’s every bit as taxing as fighting terrorists was as a SEAL. “I was calm, though, in control as we had approached enemy territory. And even after I took down six targets and got a bullet in my quad, I stayed resolute. Nothing rattled me. Mission first, emotions second.”
Life as a civilian, though, isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Fighting for what you want, takes courage. Brittney shows the reader the reality and the struggle and the heartbeat.
And the result is purely magical.
I loved the realistic plot that unfortunately happens more than we’d like to admit, but Sahin created a strong storyline with characters that we can fall in love with.
I also found myself overly invested in these characters more than I'd been with previous novels by this author. I was mad, sympathetic, curious, impatient, hopeful, surprised and in love.
Noah. He's got it all in regards to what a good man is. I mean, the way she wrote him, his features, attitude, and drive for what's right...I'm jealous of Grace, the woman who captures his heart.
Grace has a great life--to the untrained eye. But Noah can tell she's living a lie and that she's unhappy. But when they first meet, there's hesitation on both parts. Noah's love life has taken a nosedive into harsh terrain, while Grace is dealing with the aftermath of a crippling situation she'd found herself in not too long before they meet.
You must read this book. I beg you.
Sahin has done it again giving readers exactly what they crave in a great romance novel. This one will stay with you forever.
