She was beautiful, that was a given, but she was also broken. Just like me. My broken pieces stayed shattered, and hers intermixed with them all. We were just two broken people, uninterested in being fixed.
"We were so close that I felt her uneven breaths against my skin, and I was certain she felt mine."
“Don’t be so fucking dramatic. No dick is worth falling apart over.”
"I’d only been with one man in my lifetime, and it was no secret that Finley wasn’t working with the same type of equipment that Jackson had."
“They’re gonna bleed you out till you’re nothing, and then they’re gonna ask how you died.”
“I don’t know how to say goodbye,” he spoke softly, staring at the empty bowls. “Then don’t. Just say good night until tomorrow.”
I don't really care for Grace or Jackson or about their HEA although I would have liked more insight to the whys of Grace's mum and her utter lack of motherly love for Grace, in the end, I just don't care. DNF @66%
Sometimes, all a person needed was another to listen to their uneven heartbeats.
“I’m really glad you exist.”
“I like the way your heart beats.”
It was simple, the way we loved. We loved the scars of our past, and we loved the unknown of our future. We loved the mistakes. We loved the celebrations. We loved our darkness, and we loved the light.
“In his darkness, I found my light.”
“Finley always caged me. Jackson allowed me to fly.”
“After an evening of drowning, the town’s bad seed was the one who’d helped me come up for a small breath of air.”
“We were the classic cliché. She was the good girl next door, and I was the monster from around the block. We were perfect opposites for the perfect storm, and she was asking me to be her next flaw. To be her greatest mistake.”
DISGRACE was such a heartbreakingly beautiful & adorable & moving romance! So full of grief and loss and faith and hope and love and possibilites. Run to your nearest amazon - you need to get your hands on Jackson asap - he'll be sold out in NO time!!!!!!!!
“You’re my world, Gracelyn Mae,” he told me, moving in closer. Mama removed the roses from his hold, and Jackson took my hands into his. “You’re my faith. You’re my hope. You’re my true religion. I’m a better man because you exist. I’m me because of you. And if you’d allow it, I’d love to spend the rest of my life worshipping your heartbeats.”
“I will.” I placed my lips against her forehead. “And princess, can you do one thing for me?”
“Of course, anything.”
I combed her hair behind her ears and looked straight into those beautiful blue eyes as I spoke her way. “If you ever fall in love again, please let it be with me.”
“It’s easy to judge others from afar. It’s easy to look outside your world and make blanket statements and judgents on who those people are. Because when you see others’ flaws, you somewhat justify that your flaws are better than theirs. But when you zoom in, when you truly look at the person beside you, you’ll see many of the same things. Hope. Love. Fear. Anger. Once you zoom in, you realize we are all similar in so many ways. We all bleed red and even monster’s hearts can break. Just gotta remember to always zoom in.”
My father was my worst nightmare, and I hated that when I stared into his eyes, I saw my own reflection staring back at me.
"There has never been a moment when I’ve been able to just fully be Grace. Now I’m in a place where I have that opportunity, but I have no idea how to go about finding myself.”
“It’s hard for you, isn’t it ?” she asked me. “Believing that people are good.”
