 4 stars 
At first I wasn't sure what the heck was going on with Grace because I always thought of her as a strong, independent, in your face type and I loved that about her but then in this she was almost a completely different person. She was more pouty and angry. BUT as always it came together great and it totally worked and explained why she was the way she is. She was still the same Grace but you just saw the part she tried to hide which made her very easy to relate to. I was crying my little eyes out when she was talking to her parents. I was glad to see that she hadn’t changed from the Grace I loved in the earlier books.  Then there is Jonathan. Oh how I loved Jonathan in this series. Yes I feel in love with him back in book one and kept hoping we would get more of him. He was the perfect balance of sweet romantic and alpha male. He loves Grace and you can tell he would do anything for her. The story is basically Grace and how she has to figure out some things to move forward with her life with Jonathan and he feels it is important for her to work through her issues and want to help her do it.  It shows that even with imperfections you can still be perfect in someone else’s eyes.
