Anton has wanted Grace from the moment he saw her six years ago when she slighted him, dismissed and humiliated him. Just because he was a human Braxian hybrid. Which didn't make him very attractive in the looks department. He had it in the works all this time to get her to come to him. He is ready for his revenge.

So far I have read two of Regine's books and so far both have brought tears to my eyes. She has a way of drawing you into these characters without you even noticing it. I love Regine'

Great dark story, lots of triggers - the H treats her badly, and so does any number of other guys. She is horribly hurt and recovers in a way that makes her a little stronger each time. I really liked both the leads, he was mean but has his reasons. She was lazy at first, and he was the catalyst that forced her to use more than her looks to make her life better. She felt very real to me and I loved this book, even though she went through way too much abuse.

Grace had the childhood from hell. Her only savior was the friendship of Marcus her friend turned lover and then friend again.

Grace made a mistake as a teen that kept her in the eye of Anton.  He has waited for the exact moment to exact his revenge and he has found it.  I fell in love with Anton from the beginning. As mad as he is with Grace he still tries to help her excel. The combo of dark erotic and sci-fi was definitely a win with me. The story was original and creative. I was able to see

I enjoyed every word of this book and if It wasn’t for the way Anton made me want to scream at his issues it would have been a five. Anton and Grace gave me the lives of two people, two different situations and one man’s determination to get what he wants and give this story life. I love their growth and how they overcame their issues. This was a wonderful story of love, passion, hate, submission, and finding the one for you.

This book gets a little painfully dark at times. I totally get why Anton and Grace's relationship had to play out the way it did, but there were times when I wasn't sure if Anton deserved Grace or her loyalty. I was very glad Grace took a long, hard look at their relationship at one point and parsed through Anton's actions and what she was willing to put up with from him emotionally. And physically, for that matter.

So. Anton and Grace. He's a hard, driven half-breed who is determined to prove he

Worth reading and re-reading. This book is one of the few I've read where the characters grow and change in front of the reader's eye. It's easy to force characters into situations where they have to respond and change their attitudes. Usually that's done by way of narration. The beauty of this book is that it is shown, very viscerally. Grace and Anton both grow, hugely, into real adults, bearing all the responsibility and heartache, but also all the joy, that maturity brings.

Grace was a foolish grl at the start of this story,while Anton....being a halfbreed may have made him more sensitive to humiliation,but still...what he did to Grace in the beginning? That wás harsh. But,he redeemed himself in my eyes,and made up for his brutal treatment of Grace.

Overall 4.5 / 5

Anton’s Grace is the first book in the Braxians series written by author Regine Abel.  It's a complete standalone, and even though the story is set in a SciFy world, it deals with realistic issues of revenge, power, and prestige.  The characters are well developed, complex, and I became completely engrossed in the book!

In this story, Grace is a singer and her agent left her in debt and now people are after her. S

Warning: Rape - Don't read it, if you've been in such situation/s

Anton rapes her! I'm not on board with that scene! I read this book because of the link between Amalia's daughter and Anton's son. I thought Amalia series was awesome and I wanted to see the connection between Anton's son and Amalia's daughter.. however, it shocked me that there was a rape scene! And she forgave him? I'm not ok with that. Besides this scene, I found the heroine, simpid, clumsy and easily swayed etc and the hero, an

**I received an advanced review copy in exchange for my honest review.**

Ms. Abel created a vivid sci-fi world of humans, varying species of alien, and sex amongst the stars. Her descriptions weren’t over-long or flowery, but gave a stunning picture nonetheless. Entertainment barges were extremely lucrative and popular while indentured sex servitude was an accepted part of the society and often treated as a business arrangement. Slavery did occur, but contracts between the involved parties was ap

I love Regine Abel. Her writing is so vivid that I can literally see the scenes playing out. With Anton's Grace, it was the same. But Grace and Anton plays a major part in yanking my emotions every which way.

Grace never had anything, she wasn't likeable at first. I wasn't even sure I would like her, at all. But boy did I love her. She didn't just grow on me, she was exactly of what I presumed her to be. And Anton, boy was the dude just yummy or what. And then there w

OMG this book was intense! I was drawn in from the very first page and could not put it down! While definitely filled with some very graphic moments both sexual, violent and sometimes both at once, the author used these moments as a way to build on the story and really makes you feel so many emotions while reading. I adored both Anton and Grace's characters. Both had so much depth and watching them grow while the story progressed was something that I enjoyed. There were so many twists and turns ...more

This book comes with a warning label and I am glad it did. Some of the scenes were hard to read, but clearly important for the premise of the story. I couldn't help falling for Anton just as Grace did. Anton was much like an onion with many layers only to be revealed by the woman who was now in his care, all his, everyday, anyway, anytime. Grace knew the contract would be a challenge to uphold considering the Braxian ways, but she had no other choice when Marcus left her with such a huge debt. A ...more

This ones a little bit different to what I normally read. It's a mix of Sci-fi, dark romance and erotica set on a space station. Grace is a human with a huge debt to pay, she has to go to Anton, the very rich half breed for help. Unbeknownst to her, Anton has a very huge grudge against her and wishes to see her pay for disrespecting his clan.

This was a very fascinating read, I enjoyed getting lost in the fantasy of the futuristic setting and different way of life. I really did get lost in the s

I absolutely loved Anton's Grace! I could not put it down, I was drawn in from the very first chapter. I could not get enough! I was brought into work with new rules and species live. Braxians have a massive honor code and Grace offended Anton. Through careful plotting Grace is finally in his hands.
Their first meeting was seriously hot! As they move further into their arrangement things more complicated. You want to hate Anton and do for some time, them he makes it up. Then you learn m

Revenge - a double-edged sword!
The one who wields it may soon regret it. Although Anton's brand of punishments seem over the top, to me, I appreciated the regret he experienced after. Now, though, he has repairs to make, ground to regain. Watching his emotions change into something very different is deeply moving! I love the way Grace begins to come into her own, as she learns in a way her past did not encourage. She gains personal strength and respect for herself. I won't deny that some of this

"Anything he wants for six months"

Will Grace adhere to her agreement with Anton in return for his help? After all it is only six months.

Will Anton adhere to his plot for revenge to make Grace pay for what she did to Anton many years ago? Damn he only has six months.

My guess is that if you want these answers, as i did, you will have to read this book. A combination of dark erotic and sci-fi, enjoyable storyline, however some parts may be a little disturbing. But heaven help me, i really enjoyed i

Braxia has a horrible culture

How do I know that? Because the author built that world so well within the story of Grace and Anton. I wasn't sure I was up for reading this book after reading some of the reviews, but I liked the development and growth of the main characters. It was an engaging story and quite well written without a lot of grammatical or spelling errors to detract from the flow. It was very violent, so not for everyone.

I was on a rollercoaster of emotions with this book !!! I found this book to be a tear jerker. Grace seems to be in one abusive relationship after another. She turns to Anton Myers, a half breed with a talent for making money . And as Grace is left holding the considerable debt that her friend \manager \ former lover , she has no choice but to turn to Anton . Who is more then happy to have Grace in a position that she has to come to him. For one , she has talent , but her st

What a great story. It's dark in some places and has some violence, so if that bothers you, this isn't a book for you. The story sucked me in from the beginning and kept my attention till the end. The descriptions are detailed and so are the feelings of each of the main characters. It's written in first person and switches between the two main characters. Just a warning though, this book deals with emotional abuse, rape, and sexual abuse. If this is a trigger for you, I wouldn't read this book. ...more
Grace is in trouble because her boyfriend has left her stranded on the Venus Hive pleasure barge. She turns to Anton, the wealthy owner of The Hive network. In order to escape her boyfriend's creditors she makes a deal for six months anything he wants with Anton. Anton is out for revenge as he remembers Grace from the past. This was a dark, delicious read that I enjoyed to the end.

Anton's Grace by Regine Abel is a dark and twisted tale of revenge and passion. Grace finds herself in debt to Anton. A man that believes she has dishonored him. He fully intends to use this situation to make her pay. This book gets very dark at times and might not be for everyone. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC copy of this book.

An intriguing read that kept me hooked until I finished it in the wee hours of the morning. Regina Abel has a real gift for intricate plots that wrap up nicely. You will love Anton and Grace, if not the Braxians. Enjoy my friends.

Anton's Grace for me it was a mix of a little bit of darkness a little bit of heartbreaker and a bit of sweet too. It had all and I just fell in love with Anton he was just trying to find that place where he is accept with all his flaws and all. I definitely enjoy read his story I hope to hear more of the Braxia warriors and their world.

3.5 stars. its an "ok" read, no depth of the story or characters. Grace is week and lets people walk all over her. Anton has potential. It skims the surface so you don't have to put alot of thought into the story, no suspense or mystery, its just there.....
