I haven’t read too many books set in a hospital so was excited to meet Eye Contact. While I applaud this author’s authenticity and keen level of detail, especially with the in-depth medical terminology and procedures, I could not get into this book. I struggled with the pace of this story that was too slow for me. Additionally, I could not forge a connection to the characters or the storyline. I did not feel the connection between the hero and heroine either. I wanted to like this story . . . I ...more

4 1/2 Stars!

Eye Contact is an interesting read. Andie is an ER doctor. Andie is focused on her career and is totally comsumned by it. Andie doesn't do much but work. She had a good friend, Rowan. At first Andie was a little tough to connect with.

Andie is very professional but when Vaughn comes in as patient from a motorcycle accident she feels a pull to him. I liked Vaughn. He's a good guy. When he wakes up from a coma he know Andie is the one he's been looking for just by seeing her eyes. For

When you read this, be prepared for your heart to be ripped apart. This story was so unexpectedly good and so emotional. It started off slow, but the slow beginning laid the ground work for one of the best books I’ve read in a long time.

Andie Fine is a trauma doctor at an ER. An accident patient comes in one night that Andie feels a strong connection to. Vaughn Bennett has overcome a lot of bad in his past. A set of eyes from his youth has haunted him, until the day he wakes up in

Powerful in its subject matter and well-written by a new-to-me-author. Two main characters full of depth and interesting backgrounds. A burden two people should never have to carry -- and the power of love so full of giving. I don't think I have it in me to be so strong and able.

I wanted more at the end -- the reason for 4 stars. After coming so far with Andie and Vaughn, I just found several hanging ends and wanted to see more of a happily-ever-after between the two of them -- perhaps several
Sissy's Romance Book Review
Eye Contact by Stacey Grice is the story of Andie and Vaughn.
Andie saved Vaughn when they were younger when she found him being beaten by some kids. Vaughn doesn't remember much from that day but he does remember Andie's eyes. They were the first eyes that looked at him with caring and that he mattered. But they didn't know each other and when he was able to get out of the hospital he started looking for her. Never finding her and now all these years later he is an artist drawing her eyes. And

This is my first Stacey Grice book and I absolutely enjoyed it. This story is like watching two real people find and enjoy love. I enjoyed reading something so full of the "real feeling of love" in this book. I will be reading more of Stacey.

Perhaps if you can’t get someone out of your mind, they’re supposed to be there.

Eye Contact is a unique standalone novel. It is so many stories wrapped up into one. It is romantic, sad, heart breaking and a love story. Andie and Vaughn meet as kids under extreme circumstances. It was brief and then it was over. The way they met made an impact on both of them. As a result, Vaughn has never been able to forget her. Vaughn can’t seem to forget the way Andie looked at him and their intense eye conta
Patricia Maia (The Bookery Review)
My first book from Stacey Grice, a new author to me, was quite a surprise.
I really enjoyed it, the medical part is great, the connection between the characters amazing and the whole plot very emotional.

I must confess that the first 30% of the book was a bit slow, but after that was a whirlwind of events. Some I was expecting and others I never saw coming.

I loved Vaughn and Andie sense of humor, the way they complete each other, all the connection since childhood... it's just beautiful!

Chapter 38
Love can happen when you least expect it and in the unlikeliest place.

That’s how it finds Andie and Vaughn....two people with the weight of the world trying to just survive. With feelings of “knowing” someone, Vaughn and Andie must overcome so much.

Throw in real life complications, family and work and you’ve got a wild ride for these two.

A good story

A good story with solid characters but I got bored on the last chapters, also it’s was too long which I didn’t think it’s was necessary.

Get the tissues ready!

The first few pages I found myself tensed up so into the story! I knew just from that it was going to be a good story but I didn't know it was going to be "that good"! I laughed and cried....i actually boo hoo' d like a baby, just like the first time I saw "The Notebook". This is the third Stacey Grice book I have read and cannot wait for more. She has a way of making it so real. Real people, raw emotion and tough subject matter. I want more of this!

4.5 stars - ARC provided by the very talented Stacey Grice

I read the synopsis for this book and figured it would be a typical romance: boy meets girl, boy and girl fall in love, boy and girl live happily ever ever. Not so with Eye Contact. This story is wonderfully unique with little twists that take you by surprise.

One of the things I loved most is all the medical references. I know what you're thinking - bulky terminology that is hard to figure out? Yuck! But this is not the case at all. All t

Best roller coaster ever

As soon as the story begins, if you are an empath like me, then you are immediately involved and cheering on our heroes of the story. The characters are so relatable that you feel all the emotions with them throughout their journey. Beautifully written with no smut since it's not the main objective for you to focus on. I am so proud of Stacey and so grateful she shared this story with us.

4.5 stars!

I read an ARC of this author's debut book way back in 2014 and I'm not sure why I didn't continue with the second book in the series! The author then approached me and asked me if I'd like to sign up for events for this book, so I decided to review because the synopsis intrigued me! I'm really happy I did because this book was really, really good! I will admit that there was a lot of description in this book, which I normally don't like, but all of it was relevant and added to the plot

I had the pleasure of reading the ARC for Eye Contact. This is my first book to read by Stacey Grice and it did not disappoint. A beautiful and touching story and one that will stay with you.

Vaughn Bennett is an ocularist, an artist who paints prosthetic eyes. When he was in sixth grade, he was picked on by some boys from school. He was the new kid. Not even three weeks later they nearly beat him to death. Barely able to keep his eyes open, he hears her voice. When he looks up he sees an angel

Where to start...

Eye Contact was a surprise to me. I love this author and I was so excited to read her next novel. I started reading, intending to dive in and finish it in one sitting. That didn't happen. The first chunk of the book is setting the scene, so it was a bit slow for me. There was one chapter in particular that read like a medical terminology book in anatomy and physiology class. Being that it's a medical setting and the hero and heroine are an ocularist and a trauma surgeon, you mig

My first Stacey Grice book, but surely not my last.

Stacey's 3rd book is Eye Contact and I would have never known this.  Her writing is flawless, beautiful and drew me in immediately.

From the moment I met Vaughn my heart was with him.  Growing up in foster homes, not receiving the love that every child needs, my heart broke for him.

Andie was a young girl whose love of science and medicine started as a child and she has made it her life.  As a trauma surgeon, she's given the chance to help a young

5 Mesmerizing Stars

So this is the first book by Stacey Grice that I have had the pleasure of reading. I have to start out with, this book is MESMERIZING, just like the eyes that saved the life of Vaughn Bennett. I literally couldn't put this book down.

This is the kind of book that you pulls you in. It makes you laugh out loud and it makes you cry. You feel what the characters are feeling and you just need more.

Andie Fine is a trauma surgeon that is amazing at her job. She knows what she wants,

Eye Contact by Stacey Grice is the story of Andie and Vaughn. Andie saved Vaughn’s life when they were younger years before when she found him being beaten by some kids. He doesn’t have much memory from that day but he does remember Andie’s beautiful eyes. Years later we see that Andie is an ER doctor and is so totally consumed by her job, like she just works and works.

This book broke me!

This was my first book by this author and I had so many feelings in all honesty this book broke me but the ending have me such peace! I'm going to try to review this without give much away but honestly it's hard. Vaughan and Andie are by far the two strongest,bravest hero and heroine I've ever had the pleasure of reading.

4.5 STARS! "Eye Contact" is the first book I've read by Stacey Grice, and it has started a beautiful appreciation of her words. I was enticed by the cover and the blurb of the story, eager to get my hands on this book, and I wasn't disappointed in any way. Stacey made me laugh, swoon and cry. She taught me. I don't normally seek out books pertaining to the medical field, partially because I feel like I would get lost among the terminology, but Stacey introduced a lot to me in such a way that I w ...more

A second chance at love story like no other! It was a bit slow out of the gate, but once you were about at the half way point, it picked up and pulled you in and didn't let you go until you tearfully ended the book. An amazing story that begins when Andie and Vaughn are just children and he is brutally attacked by some boys at his school, Andie saves him by keeping him company, awake and still until help arrives. Then he's gone and she never sees him again. They reunite in a way that to me, brin ...more

This book was pretty special. I loved the detail in it. Andie and Vaughn have a connection. I love that fate plays a factor in this story. I had goosebumps in this story. It felt real, concise, meant to be for these two.

Vaughn had a hard upbringing. The prologue, oh my goodness, my heart, I felt it break for him. I immediately was drawn into their story. Present day, they're brought back together, she feels different. I love that the author really didn't drag out the who whole "well, we met befo

Rating: 4.5*

Fate brings Andie and Vaughn back together as Andie saves his life once again. Vaughn has been searching for her since she saved his life as a child, remembering only her eyes.

So that's all I'm going to say about the story. I was expecting this to be a sweet contemporary romance but it was so much more. It ripped me apart before putting me back together. It was a challenging read in parts as it brought up some sensitive issues. It challenged my constructs and forced me to reconsider

So I liked this book but I am also in the medical field so I understood more of what was going on when the characters were saying or doing things. If you love medical drama and romance, you will like this book. But I can see some not due to the terminology alone. I get people in the medical field talk a little different but it just seemed to be a little over kill for me. As a reader, I was thinking "so many people are gonna be lost".

Andie has always been so career driven and very focused. Enter Vaughn, a motorcycle accident patient. Andie is drawn to him. Vaughn is determined to win her over.

This is my first book by this author. It won't be my last. Very well written with a good story to tell. I loved what the author did with educating us on something, but I do not want to give it away. It was done perfectly.

I give this book 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Stacey Grice delivers another wonderful love story complete with twists no one would see coming.

Eye Contact made me a laugh and made me cry. The story of Andie and Vaughn comes to life in such a relatable way that I didn't want the book to end. It's touching and raw in parts and funny and light in others.

This is a MUST READ!!

Who would think in a million years you’d find that one stranger again? The one you’ve searched for, for years and years..

I have literally watched Stacey Grice grow so much as an author. She has made each book better than the last, but the one thing she has nailed from the beginning is creating characters who are real. Characters who people can really relate to and feel connected to.

Andie Fine is a very successful trauma surgeon who saves the life of Vaughn Bennett. As professional as Dr. Fine is, she can not shake the connection she feels to Vaughn. I am not going to give away any plot for this story because I thi
