I loved this book, there were ups and downs and for the most part it actually felt as if it was taken from a real life situation. Grady and Emmalynne's inner monologues were adorable, its how people really think and freak out about stuff, I loved it.The attraction between Emmy and Grady is instant, its sweet and almost innocent in a way, I love that this book is written from more than one point of view, you don't just have Emmalynne or Grady's view you have both and even some of their friends, but for the most part it is Emmy and Grady telling their story. Grady is sweet, kind, caring and loving and like every man he makes his mistakes and doesn't communicate his feelings very well. Emmy has been through a lot in her life and has managed to be strong for her son Tucker, to her its always felt like just the two of them with friends and family on the outside, so to her meeting Grady and having him like her back is new and out of the ordinary and it takes her some time and a pep talk or two to accept that this man thinks she's beautiful and worthy. Overall its a sweet story that when you read it you could see it happening to you which is what I love about it, i'm all for the fantasy of these billionaires and CEO's but Grady is better as he's just a regular guy that wants to give this woman everything he can, I think its amazingly sweet and very well written. The only thing I have to say about the editing is that a few times Brock (one of the friends) is referred to as Dereck, that confused me to no end, but that is the only thing that bothered me about this book. I give it 5 stars I loved it!
