There are just some authors whose words speak to your soul. They reshape your mind and spirit and bring you peace just reading their work. Anissa Garcia is one of those authors for me. She is one of my favorites and tonight’s chosen comfort read. I have re-read this book so many times that I have officially lost count.
I can honestly say that I loved her work before I even met her but now she is a cherished friend. Her way with words and the fluidity with which she writes is quite flawless and are a reflection of the enormous heart and generous nature she possesses. If you haven’t read her books, I highly recommend you give them a try!
About the Book:
Author Grace Clark closed her heart a long time ago, making a promise she’s vowed to keep. Hollywood heartthrob Evan Matthews moves next door and vows to break down the walls she’s built. Grace will not be allured by Evan’s good looks, charisma, wit, and sexy smirk, but she seems to be losing the battle daily. She will do whatever it takes to protect herself from being played, not wanting to fall for his charms, because it’s more than just her pride at stake. Evan is enchanted from the start. Grace is enticing and down to earth, but she is also holding back, and he wants nothing more than to break through that reserve and let her shine. Can Grace risk being around a man who tempts her without compromising the importance of the promise made? Can Evan be patient enough to let Grace break down those walls? Or has the promise kept them from recognizing true love?
The love story between Evan and Grace is one for the record books….sweet, funny, and sultry. They have great chemistry but more important they connect on a level that screams “intimacy” without shedding a stitch of clothing (although, yes, they eventually do that). These two characters have depth and charm and their banter provides plenty of entertainment. Separately they are extremely well written but together they can move mountains. No matter how many times I read this book, I always feel giddy and glowing afterwards and look forward to the next time I pick it up. A 5 star read for me.
