Thoughts
I really enjoyed The Grunt, the author did an excellent job with the writing. Then she threw a few unexpected curveballs in the storylines that i loved. I loved it so much i did not mind when i had to pick my jaw up off the floor a few times.
Courtney- I loved her spirit she was always positive. She was very loving and carefree it really showcased her character.
Brett- Is sweet and very loving he wears his heart on his sleeve and is not afraid to be sensitive or show sensitivity. He also stood up for what he believed and did not back down when faced with adversity.

My Ratings
Characters- Lovable
Writing Style- Excellent
Plot/Storyline- Emotional, Passionate and at times Intense
Steam Factor- Moderately Steamy
Overall- I loved it!!!! Very Enjoyable!
