For four years, Grace Sullivan wrote to a Marine she never met, and fell in love. But when his deployment ended, so did the letters. Ever since that day, Grace has been coasting, academically and emotionally. The one thing she’s decided? No way is Noah Jackson — or any man — ever going to break her heart again.
Noah has always known exactly what he wants out of life. Success. Stability. Control. That’s why he joined the Marines and that’s why he’s fighting his way — literally — through college. Now that he’s got the rest of his life on track, he has one last conquest: Grace Sullivan. But since he was the one who stopped writing, he knows that winning her back will be his biggest battle yet.
I want to state that the minute I read about this book, I HAD TO HAVE IT! I looked far, wide, near, away... until I found it and bought it IMMEDIATELY!
...it did NOT disappoint.
It all starts with Grace sending Noah letters while he's overseas in Afghanistan.
Yeah... I'm sucker for stuff like that. :-)
Then, Noah comes home and disappears on Grace. She's heartbroken.
So... Grace moves on with her life and goes to college. She lives with her cousin/best friend, starts branching out with her world and works in the library on the campus. One day, she looks down from a balcony and sees two guys standing down there. Her hopes jump back into swing, but still remembers how she hasn't heard from him in 2 years!
Grace and Noah start hanging out/seeing each other. As you go along, you find out Mr. Hawtness (Noah), is an amateur UFC fighter.
These two FINALLY get their acts together!!
And despite their differences, their backgrounds, everything... you find yourself being all:
Go and read this! It's a sweet, amazing book! I definitely recommend it. :-)
