This is the third book in this trilogy. I absolutely loved the first two books but seriously has this author saved the best til last?? I think she may have done as I devoured this book. Amazing read.

This is Grants story. I wasn't too keen on him in the first two books. However once I got into his head I was really hoping he'd get his happy ever after. Has he? Well of course your gonna have to 1-click to find out.

Slightly darker this book had me gripped from start to finish. The twists and turns

I was able to get an ARC of this one. This is actually the first book by Renee Dyer I have read. And HOLYWOW! Did it leave me wondering what I've been missing out on! I absolutely have to read Renee's other books now! While reading this book, I cried, I smiled, I cringed. I laughed, I wanted to hit stuff, and my heart jumped for joy. This lady sure knows how to throw a ton of emotions at you. And she does so intensely! This is one book that will leave you unable to wait until the end to see how ...more

I just hate it when a book doesn't measure up to my expectations, it's a complete blowup.

I have to admit the writing is amazing, in a different situation I would've completely loved this book, however the story didn't appeal to me. First couple of chapters were great but I hated the anger driven by hate, totally not healthy.

You just can't plan to destroy someone because life treated you miserably, let alone your sibling. That's just wrong.

I know there gon' be redemption, salvation and blah bl

I have read all books by this author and I have to say the other two books are alot different to this book, but don't let that deter you away from this book. It's darker than the other 2 books but WOW seriously It was deep.

Grants book ..... you finally get to read his story and what a story it is.
I wasn't a massive fan of Grant in Waking Up and Eyes Wide Open , I couldn't understand why he was such a prick, I mean yes he's been dealt a crappy hand but we don't know the full story.

I loved this story, it shows us what blind hatred can turn a person into.

Grant has certainly been dealt a bad hand at a tender age of 16. He blindly blames the wrong person for his bad hand and sets out to ruin his brother for it.

He sets his vengeance in motion, heedless of who he hurts in the process. Little does he suspect that he is the target of an even sicker man.

In walks Cammie and wants to convince Grant that it is possible to love and that there is good in him no matter how much he doesn

I don't even know where to begin with this book. I was intrigued by Grant in Eyes Wide Open and felt that there was a deep story there, and I wasn't disappointed. I will say, Beneath His Darkness is darker than the first two books in The Healing Hearts series, and it is truly heartbreaking to read at times. There are scenes that will haunt you, and stay with you long after you're through reading. The emotion that is poured into this book is beyond amazing. You feel as though you are there with t ...more

~~~~~~~~~~Dee's ★★★★★ Review~~~~~~~~~~

This book is so dark, twisted with hate, revenge, fear, self loathing and crushing pain. How can one human being feel such devastating anguish and not go out of his mind? At age sixteen, Grant suffered loss, rejection and abandonment and planted these poisoned seeds, nurturing their growth until a great, dense darkness overtook his life on every level. He became trapped in humiliation, a prisoner of abuse and captivity.

It was difficult to read

Beneath His Darkness is book 3 in the Healing Hearts series but can be read as a stand-alone.

We met Grant in book 2, Eyes Wide Open, but this is Grant’s story. Waking Up and Eyes Wide Open, while they had their sad, dark moments, were overall happy, uplifting books. Tucker and Adri are “white” whereas Grant is “black”.

We know from Eyes Wide Open that Grant is Tucker’s half-brother and we know why he has it out for Tucker. I was very intrigued with Grant in Eyes Wide Open and was so excited that

It isn’t every day that your life is turned upside down at the age of 16. For Grant, his world came crumbling down in the blink of an eye. Just when he thought he was going to be able to save the man he called Dad for the last 16 years, a secret is revealed and throws Grant into the darkness that consumes him for the next six years of his life. This darkness lead him down a path of destruction. One that wouldn’t stop until Tucker Stavros was taken down.

I have enjoyed the first two books in the series and I was intrigued that Grant was getting his own book. We met Grant in the first two stories, Waking Up and Eyes Wide Open. I was not a fan of him in those two books. What he did-ugh I couldn’t get over. But in Beneath His Darkness, Grant really surprised me. I have come to like him. Renee takes you inside Grant’s mind and oh my goodness, it is great. I was able to get the insight of why he hated Tucker so much and why he did what he di

No clue where my original review of this book went ??

So Renee did the unexpected for many - she made us like/love Grant !! From what we knew of him he was a snake and up to no good at all times. BUT we didn't know of his horrible past and the things he suffered through. Now we know and what is worse is that we have to go through that with him as he tells his story and because of where his story takes us. There are pieces of this story that run through some of what we already read in WU and EWO ,

So, if you haven't read this series you, could say that you get the gist of the previous books reading Grants story. Would I recommend you not read the first 2 in the series?... Hell no! You have to read Tucker's story to understand him then you will have a complete understanding of Grant and the depth of the things he has done. Now that I have said my piece let's talk about Grant.

Beneath His Darkness, an interesting and amazing read from Renee Dyer.
From the start up to the last, I was intrigued on what will happen next to the characters and the story.
The characters, Canmmie and Grant are amazing.
Cammie, a wonderful woman who sees the good in every person, and her personality makes her shine.
Grant, a loving son but an unexpected revelation made him a manipulator and full of hate.
When these two people collide, things got more interesting and it made me curious on what

This is book 3 in the Healing Hearts series and can be read as a standalone.
I gave this book 5 stars.

This is Grant's story.
Grant WAS in the first two books, but as stated can be read as a standalone.

Grant is living for revenge. It is sad to say but that is what is getting him through his life. That is until he meets the beautiful girl that is going to change it all for him. Renee has done it again.. She saved the best for last and this one kept me on the edge of my seat!! I was sad to see

Grant's life was blown apart at sixteen. His world as he knew it was no more. His Dad's rejection was all it took to push Grant into a world of hate, revenge and darkness. Grant set out to destroy his brother's life, just as his had been destroyed. Revenge was his life, he planned it that way as not to get hurt again, but some of the people turned this around to get what they wanted to help him.

I was lucky enough to read the first 2 books in this series. Waking Up & Eyes Wide open.

Beneath his Darkness is a great story of the other side we wanted to know about. How Tucker Stavros came about to meeting Grant Andrews. What drove him from the life he had & the show he was on. But it was so much more than just this.

Wow, what can I say Renee Dyer, you have done it again. I absolutely loved Grant's story. You made me hate him in the first two books and love him in this one. This story puts us inside Grant's head we see where the darkness comes from. I loved Cammie and how she could see the good in him when no one else could. I was on the edge of my seat, I never saw that coming. (Not saying what, no spoilers from me). This is a must read, you will not be disappointed. I was lucky to win an ARC and be able to ...more

Going into Beneath His Darkness by Renee Dyer, I knew that it would be a much darker read than the previous books in the Healing Hearts series. However, I couldn’t have ever dreamt what the journey, or the destination, would be like. It is filled with ups and downs meant to tear you apart and then fill you back up with hope. It’s a man’s journey to finding himself and realizing that things aren’t always what they may seem. Beneath His Darkness may not be your average love story, but it is certai ...more

This is the third book in a series by Renee Dyer. This book centres around Grant who we are introduced to in books 1 and 2. Although only slightly mentioned in those books it was enough to turn me off Grant and I disliked him immensely. My dislike of him even stopped me from starting this book straight away as I was convinced that I couldn't like Grant but I have to admit I was wrong.

Through this book we learn of Grant's inner demons and why he behaves the way he did. The shining light that make

This review is a little difficult to write, I can only image the difficulty it was to write this book. In the first 2 books in the Healing Hearts Series, I really hated Grant. In this book we get a background on Grant that explains why he has been doing the things he is. I still wanted to reach into my tablet and punch him in the nose and just shake some since into him. Grant is going to do things beyond any thing he ever imagined to ruin the lives of all of those who he thinks stole his. Along ...more

Grants story

After reading the first two books we were looking forward to reading this one but we were not sure if we actually liked it as much as the first two.

It was a very dark read and some parts were a bit hard to read especially what he went through but we guess it shows you how dark it was to want revenge to the point he wanted…

Grant came from a home that was perfect till he was 16 years old, then when he found out he wasn't a match

After having read the first two Healing Hearts novels, I didn't think anything in this book would surprise me.
I was wrong.
So many aspects to this book surprised, and even shocked me. I watched Grant from the sidelines, seeing how Tucker dealt with his and just kept thinking, "This guy's a total D-bag". Granted, not many things in this book actually changed my mind until about half way through. I started to see more of his pain, more of what he was going through, and I started to empathize with

Renee Dyer is a New Hampshire girl through and through. She began writing because staring at trees got boring and her mom gave her a journal to make her stop talking all the time. She’s a tea-drinking, Supernatural-watching, Patriots-loving, fuzzy sock obsessed, craft hoarder, who fights with her characters, but typically gives in because their ideas are better. Most days (because it feels like a ...more
