All of my demons are coming to head.
I thought Ari could push them back.
I thought I could conquer my vices with her at my side.
I thought wrong.
Fear is my new constant.
I thought I could conceal it, contain it, control it.
I thought that now that I had Grant the worst was over.
I thought wrong.
But if we’regoing to survive, wherever you go…take me with you.
Grant and Ari fell in love in the first book of this series. They are not the couple you would normally expect to see together…Ari, the good girl,working hard at her college degree and Grant is the bad boy rocker. Grant has the “manwhore” title, but once he meets Ari, life is changed. Grant surprised me with his softer side in book one, Take Me For Granted (http://amzn.to/1CJcX59)
So when I started this book…on page ONE, Grant showed me again that he is a good guy. He really loves Ari. I think from page one, literally, to the end of the book, Grant showed his undying love for Ari and that is what made me love this book so much. Yes, there are other people “testing” their relationship throughout the book, but Grant’s love and need was shown over and over again. Ari’s love for Grant was evident too!
“I could already feel the ache of missing him settling into my chest. I’d finally found a boy who made my heart skip, and i didn’t want him to go away”
KA Linde is the queen of angst. (Ummm..hello, she wrote the Avoiding Series – the ULTIMATE IN ANGST! http://amzn.to/1yK3kSg <—-only $5.99 for the series) But this book isn’t about running away from each other and not knowing what they want, it’s just a beautiful love story and the reality of being apart, growing up and falling in love.
” She still didn’t realize she was the one person who mattered. She was my life raft”
I really enjoyed seeing the progression of their love and lives together. Kyla has me on page one of this book. Thank you for giving us Grant!
Grant practically bounded across the room until he was directly in front of me. Then, his hands were cupping my cheeks so tenderly that it was as if he thought I might break in half. Without a word, his mouth dropped down on mine, and the kiss was as light as a feather. It was a question, a soft and delicate question, one he had never asked before—permission.
When I didn’t pull away from him, he received his answer. The kiss deepened, and he coaxed all the anger out of me. He drew it out as if sucking venom from an open wound. He kissed me so heatedly and lovingly that not even a drop remained. All that was left was a bottomless well of emotions of how much I loved and missed him.
When I came back into the moment, I heard the catcalls and yells from the people around us. It was then I remembered that we were in a crowded room, surrounded by people, and Grant had kissed the breath out of me. I flushed from head to toe at the attention, but he wouldn’t let me pull away.
“I’m sorry,” he whispered. “I shouldn’t have blown up on you. I shouldn’t have done anything. You’re all that matters.”
I stared up at him in confusion. “Who are you, and what have you done with Grant McDermott?”
He laughed that beautiful glorious laugh, and a smile lit up his whole face. It was that damn smile that had won me over in the first place.
“Run away with me,” he murmured.
“Run away with me. Let’s get out of here.”
“Where are we going?”
