Goodreads Summary: Saving Grace

Grace and Ted Chapman are widely regarded as the perfect literary power couple. Ted is a successful novelist and Grace, his wife of twenty years, is beautiful, stylish, carefree, and a wonderful homemaker. But what no one sees, what is churning under the surface, is Ted’s rages. His mood swings. And the precarious house of cards that their lifestyle is built upon. When Ted’s longtime assistant and mainstay leaves, the house of cards begins to crumble and Grace, with dark secrets in her past, is most vulnerable. She finds herself in need of help but with no one to turn to…until the perfect new assistant shows up out of the blue.  To the rescue comes Beth, a competent young woman who can handle Ted and has the calm efficiency to weather the storms that threaten to engulf the Chapman household. Soon, though, it’s clear to Grace that Beth might be too good to be true. This new interloper might be the biggest threat of all, one that could cost Grace her marriage, her reputation, and even her sanity.  With everything at stake and no one to confide in, Grace must find a way to save herself before it is too late.

My Review 3 Stars 

WTF? So Ted can have his rants and treat his wife like sh*t, but when she starts acting like anything but prefect he wants her to see a doctor. I know Beth was tricking him, but seriously Ted? You are an arrogant, ignorant, jerk! 

Grace, being perfect doesn’t keep you safe or happy. Letting your husband treat you like crap behind closed doors doesn’t make you perfect. Perhaps if she had a backbone and stood up to her damn husband then she would have time to do her things and time for herself. 

I had to keep fast forwarding the CD, some parts just dragged and I wanted it to end. While I was hoping for a “Happy Ending” I also wanted it over. While some parts were exciting, there were many parts that dragged. 

Has that ever happened to you? You wanted a book over and kept skipping pages just wishing it would end. 

Highlight for spoilers (((((Grace tries to go to Ted but he’s so under Beth’s spell, it’s pathetic. He let Beth steal all their money. Eventually Beth leaves him to go on to the next victim. He begs Grace to take him back and you think she does….but she finally comes to her sense. Did you really think she wanted you back after you not only treated her like crap but put her through hell? WOOOOHOOOO Take that you f&cktard Ted.

Grace goes back to Patrick and they live a happy life.

Really sad that her own daughter didn’t believe her. But Claire was clearly spoiled and thought her parents lived a perfect life. Glad that she finally came to her senses. 

Beth who is now Liz, moves on to her next victim…sickening. I would be blogging, Facebooking, and Tweeting away about Beth. I would want the world to know her face and what she did. Seriously, so one wants revenge or to make her pay? The mom before Grace, had her kids taken away…she’s going to do the same to this new family. I want to cry as she says to the next mom, “I will be changing your life.”))))

Goodreads Summary: Crazy Love You

Falling in love can feel like a dream…or a living nightmare.

Darkness has a way of creeping up when Ian is with Priss. Even when they were kids, playing in the woods of their small Upstate New York town, he could feel it. Still, Priss was his best friend, his salvation from the bullies who called him “loser” and “fatboy”…and from his family’s deadly secrets.

Now that they’ve both escaped to New York City, Ian no longer inhabits the tortured shell of his childhood. He is a talented and successful graphic novelist, and Priss…Priss is still trouble. The booze, the drugs, the sex—Ian is growing tired of late nights together trying to keep the past at bay. Especially now that he’s met sweet, beautiful Megan, whose love makes him want to change for the better. But Priss doesn’t like change. Change makes her angry. And when Priss is angry, terrible things begin to happen…

Lisa Unger never disappoints with her twisted books and endings…this will be good! I can’t figure out if Priss is real, in his mind, or a ghost…so intriguing.

Book Review Blog Hop #2 — 22 Comments

  1. I just stayed up late to finish reading, The one and Inly, by Emily Giffin and as much as I wanted to see how it ended and definitely a bit disappointed and not my favorite by her by any means sadly. Sad when a book leaves you feeling let down, but this one did just that and hoping my next pick is better though.

    • OH NO…I had that on my to read list, but I trust you if you say it let you down. I hate when that happens. I know you really want the next book to be awesome to make up for the previous one.

  2. Now that I have read this review, I am glad I did. Don’t think I would pick up this book because it sounds pretty predictable. I wanted the book “All the Light We Cannot See” to end because for me it kind of dragged. Everyone talks about how much they loved that book, for me, I just don’t get it.

    • Yeah, I was fast forwarding some parts that just dragged on…hate when that happens. Going to make sure I don’t add that to my list, thanks.

    • It’s disappointing when that happens, then you need your next book to be even better to make up for that. Cool, would love for you to link up.

  3. I had to laugh when I saw the title I got excited for a second, there was a TV show called “Saving Grace” This is not it 🙂

    I agree whenever the character treats his woman badly, I tend to turn off and skim pages…..

    xoxoxo

  4. Hi, I am also doing a linkup for book reviews and anything literacy-related. 🙂 I linked up. You are welcome to come linkup with us too. Maybe we can merge? I am looking for more hosts. marykatbpcsc45 at gmail (dot)com.

  5. I’m currently reading #GIRLBOSS, but I also have Heartache waiting for me to read. After writing today’s post about Sophia Amoruso
    quote, I’m considering writing a book related post, which I would totally linkup with you!
    Thanks for sharing your review!
    XOXO

  6. I haven’t started reviewing any books on my blog yet but I just finished reading an inspirational book called the Blueprint by Kirk Franklin and Child of God by Lolita Files. Child of God was fiction and it was about inbreeding in a rural family. Very powerful. Stopping by from #SITSsharefest

Would love to read your thoughts
