In the aftermath of a tragedy, twenty-six-year-old Blake Kendall has all but given up on relationships. It seems that nobody truly gets her, until she meets the enigmatic owner of a charitable bookstore called Forever Grace. Landon Farrar's dry humor couldn't clash more with her cynical wit, but she senses there's more to the sharp-tongued Landon than meets the eye. He act ...more

What an intriguing storyline ..... the intervention of fate .... and in this case, both cruel and jubilant. This is a sexy romance with witty dialogue. There are choices to be made as well; forgive and live life to the fullest, or keep living in the past full of regrets, painful memories and shame.

The oober seductive H, Landon, and the none too shy h, Blake, really enjoy each other's company, but Landon will only commit to hookups and Blake knows she is in no position to want more. Both have dee

Recommends it for: Romance lover!
Such a great story and this is her first novel!! I was hooked after reading a few pages. Blake and Landon relationship is not your typical romance relationship. Their banters was what made it for me. I found myself chuckling at their retorts and antics. I enjoyed how flawed and broken at times her they were. I would had to say I found myself a little teary eyed in a few scenes and thats huge haha. Definitely recommend it to all my friends that like romance novel, you will be swooning with Landon ...more

This was one hell of a debut novel! I didn't want to put this book down. The two main characters, Landon and Blake, are both broken and shaken by a tragedy. Neither feels they deserve the right to be happy despite the fact they are alive and good people and that might be one of the most heartbreaking concepts but a very real concept for many people. Hall took every day obstacles and shined a light on them making you think about the way you view life. I could have never seen the turn this book to ...more

To each his own...If you have 100 people in one room that have to describe one thing, they will all come up with their own version of the story. For me this was a beautifully told story. It was cute, it was touching, it felt real.... i loved the chemistry the two characters build throughout the book. My one star short of the five star, i have to say it felt a little dragging. This was my first read by this author and I will definitely look for more.
Well done Holly!

Hard to believe this is the author’s first book. I loved the way she told this story. Couldn’t help but love Landon!

There is tragedy in this book, but also a great love story! The way she had the story unfold was perfect!

Will definitely be looking for more from this author!

Pet’s $0.02 (3.5 stars)

I’ve never read anything by Holly Hall before, but I love to give authors I’m unfamiliar with a chance. I liked Forever Grace, but I can’t say that I fell in love with it.

I really liked the friendship between Blake and her two best friends. Her mother was funny and her father was definitely her champion. I appreciated that she had an active social life and a career as an ER nurse that gave her purpose. I even get that she hasn’t opened herself up for a relationship after h

Very rarely do I ever read the blurb of a book, one click it, and then immediately start reading. 99% of the time it just gets added to my never ending TBR pile (it's way beyond a list at this point), and I'll read it when and if I remember. This time was different though. After checking out the blurb I knew I needed to read it asap.

My interest was piqued from the very beginning as the prologue opened up with the accident that changed Blake's life. The exact details come later on in the story bu

Blake and Landon's story started with lots of tragedy and guilt. But somehow these two souls found comfort within each other in order to heal. Their story is not the usual love story, and it's not the usual ending. Their story is different because of their past and how they are connected without yet knowing it.

Pretty awesome

I gotta say I really love it when I stumble onto a new writer that is as good as this one promises to be. This was a great little book and I was sorry to finish it, simply because finding good stories is getting harder and harder. And usually when I risk reading a writer I'm not familiar with, I regret it. This was an unexpected treat.

I'm an angst junkie, but I get it that many aren't. For them, this probably isn't the right book. This is a highly emotional story with strong charac

For this being a debut author I am blown away and stunned because this book was one of the most beautiful stories I have ever read! The flow and the characters and the storyline is so perfect I wish I could give this story more than 5 stars! The story of Blake and Landon is so beautiful even in the tragedy they both endure and obstacles they have to get through. I loved their banter and I loved a uniqueness of their story. Through heartache and pain they learn about forgiveness and finding your ...more

Beautifully Broken

The two lead characters are filled with sorrow and regret. They are broken. Tragedy destroyed each of them, but love mended them. They are beautifully broken. I loved everything about this book. I can't wait to read more of Holly's work.

Great Read

It took me a bit to finish this book because, well life, I'm so glad I finally did. I enjoyed the story line and how they overcome the obstacles they faced.

3.5 Debut Stars!

This caught my attention on my Goodreads feed, I noticed that it did not have many reviews. I read the blurb, and realized it is a debut author. I decide to give it a try.

I enjoyed it, although I did figure out the twist about half way though, I was still connected with the characters. I continued to read, and I have to say I really liked how she ended this one. I felt the ending really fit the story, along with it not feeling rushed. I see she has just completed another stand-al

Holly Hall! What a great debut novel. I was hooked from the beginning. If you are wanting to read a classic romance novel with a twist that you don't see coming, then this is your pick! I instantly was able to relate to Blake, the protagonist, with her lifestyle and sometimes apprehensive outlook on life. The plot may seem like it's been done before but I promise that once you get to the bombshell, it'll be unlike any novel you've read thus far!

“Autumn is the best time of year. Maybe the worst for being a single girl of twenty-six, but in every other way, it’s perfect. The best things come out of hiding this time of year: the rich colors of fall leaves, pumpkin flavored everything, dark lipstick, sweaters and boots, fires, and . . . Landon Farrar, apparently.” 1 likes
