Product Description

Product Description

Grace Kelley isn’t blonde, demure, and she definitely isn’t a princess. At the moment, fifteen dollars and a single peppermint stand between her and starvation. When she meets a teenaged girl in trouble, Grace’s life takes a turn for the better. She goes from a homeless singer to a nanny in no time flat.

Professionally, Chord Robbins has the world at his feet. As the coach of the Super Bowl winning NFL team, The Austin Lone Stars, there is nothing he can’t do. But his home life is hell. He has three kids, no discipline, and his wife left him for her yoga instructor. When Grace stumbles into his life, he promptly throws her out. But she won’t stay away. Since he can’t get rid of her, he hires her.

When these two get together, it proves that all is fair in love and football… and losing is just the beginning.

HASH(0xa32ae414) out of 5 stars great author! Aug. 12 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

Katie Graykowski is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors! This book is number 2 in the series, and while you don't have to have read book one to completely understand everything (the author does a good job recapping and re-introducing characters), you totally should read book 1. Grace and Chord are both dynamic, entertaining characters, that you immediately like. Especially Grace, she is one of those female characters that I absolutely love reading about. She is strong, witty, independent, smart, sarcastic, and funny...I basically wish she could be my friend. At the very beginning Chord is a little like a sad puppydog who just needs some love, but as the story progresses we get to see more and more of his personality and humor.

As their relationship progresses we don't have a ton of the typical plot devices that authors like to use in romances. There are no giant misunderstandings, and the few smaller issues we see get resolved quickly. They aren't left to fester for weeks or months. There are a few jealous rivals thrown in the mix, but none of them derail their relationship for more than a couple pages. These two act like how mature adults would act in real life. They have issues trusting, get in fights, get mad at each other, but eventually make up and learn from their mistakes to build their relationship. It's so refreshing to have an author just give us a great story. I cannot wait until book 3.

HASH(0xa43ae21c) out of 5 stars Fun read Aug. 23 2014

Lots of lol. Great characters. Loved how the author developed the story and the family. I felt the ending was cut and chopped. I would have liked to see how the kids took the announcement of their marriage. Who gave Grace away? How did the kids react to their new sibling? I just felt robbed. If you like a lot of steamy sex this I s not for you.

HASH(0xa3262cf0) out of 5 stars Overall Rating: 3.5 stars- Worth a few minutes before bedtime. Dec 29 2014
By Trish at BedroomBookworms - Published on Amazon.com

So I really, really liked Perfect Summer. I gave it 4.5 stars back when I read it, and since then I’ve thought about going back and changing it to 5 because I just really, really liked it. I felt like it was the perfect mix of funny and sexy and realism and fantasy. So when Saving Grace (the sequel) came out, I was really quite stoked. Unfortunately, I didn’t feel like it was quite as great as Perfect Summer. I still liked it. I just didn’t love it. The humor was just a little over the top and it pushed the boundaries of believability to me. That being said, if you’re in the mood for some light-hearted laughs, it’s still well-written and full of likeable characters.

Overall Rating: 3.5 stars- Worth a few minutes before bedtime.

I’m not going to go on and on. I love Katie Graykowski’s writing but even my favorite authors have a miss sometimes. I wouldn’t go quite THAT far with this one, but it just didn’t give me that man-I-loved-that feeling that most of her writing does. The characters are all completely lovable, but the plot just left me underwhelmed.

If you choose to read Saving Grace, you need to start it with a good dose of suspended disbelief. We have a broke and embarrassed street performer (Grace) saving the neck of an idiot teenager. (That part? Totally believable. Why are we all idiots as teenagers?) But of course, the idiot teenager belongs to a rich guy named Chord and you can guess the rest.

“Yes, I want to date you. I want to get dressed up and take you out on the town – no kids allowed. I want to go to cocktail parties with you and benefits and text you a million times a day and call you up to see what you’re doing even though I only saw you ten minutes ago. You know. . . sappy boyfriend crap.”

Saving Grace felt like a mix of Little Orphan Annie, The Sound of Music, and The Three Stooges. While I like all three of those things, together the outlandish nature of everything (the neurotic dog really put it over the top for me) just didn’t work for me.

It was a light, not-unpleasant read, but just not appointment reading like my previous experience with Katie’s books.

“You’re my life. . . my everything. You’re the other half of the soul.”

Smut Factor: 3 stars- Not Bad
Character likability: 4 stars- I wish we were friends.
Storytelling: 3 stars- It could happen
Writing and editing quality: 3 stars – A few errors, but nothing that took away from the story.

HASH(0xa3262e88) out of 5 stars Absolutely loved it! Aug. 5 2014
By M.V. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Awesome fun. I am a fan of the greats Susan Mallery, Debbie Macomber, Jill Shalvis. Sherryl Woods, etc.and since I work 10 hour days do not get a lot of time to read. So I am very selective in what I read but I could not put this one down. Read it in 2 days and lost a few hours sleep. I laughed, I cried and I laughed some more. The characters had spunk, humor and backbone. The kids only added to the fun and don't get me started on the dog. Everyone had a little twist to their character including the dog. I especially enjoy the wit that Katie Graykowski writes with. So much fun. Cannot wait for her to write the next in the series. Already bought the 2 she has in her music series. I am saving them for vacation in 3 weeks.

HASH(0xa32ae9fc) out of 5 stars My only disappointment was that it ended! Oct. 20 2014

Ms. Graykowski is an amazing talent!

In this the second book of The Lone Stars series, she continues to weave great stories around great characters: sassy, smart heroine; strong, sensitive hero; lovable kids; and a number of secondary characters that deserve their own stories.

An altogether superb and well-written book with witty banter, laugh-out-loud moments, and no misunderstandings that dragged on for far too long. Certainly one of the better books I have read this year, and my only disappointment was that it ended.
