Susan Stoker - Claiming Grace review

Claiming Grace ( Book 1 of 2 in the Ace Security Series ) by Susan Stoker

Date of Publication: March 14, 2017


For Logan Anderson, moving on from a traumatic past means moving back to his hometown of Castle Rock, Colorado, to start a personal-security business with his brothers. But it's not long before Logan runs into Grace Mason, his best friend from high school…and the woman who never answered his letters during his Army years.
Grace was pleasantly surprised to see Logan return to Castle Rock, despite their falling-out ten years ago. Everyone always assumed they would end up together, including Grace, who had eyes only for him. But as Logan eventually escaped their town, Grace got pulled further into her family's controlling grasp—and farther away from the man she loved.
Now, united by scars both visible and not, the two must fight to free Grace from the suffocating hold of her family. But the Masons won't let go easily—and they'll do whatever it takes to keep the couple apart.

My Review

So I have to say, I've met Susan and she's super sweet and fun! And even though I bought several of her books, I haven't had a chance to read them due to my blog schedule but she's been on my radar for awhile. I was excited to get the opportunity to review the start to her new series! And I was immediately hooked in Logan and Grace's world.
I liked how the beginning of this book showed the brothers struggle and how Ace Security was started. We got a glimpse into their past and why they wanted to start their company.  Then we start to see Logan and Grace in their lives.  Logan and Grace have been avoiding each other, even though their friends want them to talk.  They each are doing their own thing, now in the same town. Because of Grace's friendship with Felicity, we start to see the hold her parents have on her life. And let me tell you, reader! My blood was about to boil when we first started seeing Grace's home life. Her mom and dad have GOT TO GO! Despite the craziness around her, Grace is a strong woman, looking for a way to live her life. I felt a mix of horror, sadness and mad at the life she was living. I was cheering her on.
I liked that Grace and Logan had a past.  She knew he was someone she could trust. And she was still attracted to him and wanted to know the man he had become.  He, too, felt her pull and wanted to help and get to know her.  Their story is a slow simmer that developed into a hot burn and I was completely captured by them.  I didn't want the story to end and I was on the edge of my seat throughout this book. I loved that we saw glimpses of new characters and what was to come next in this series. Now I find myself anxiously awaiting Claiming Alexis. Grab this book today!
