Falling for Gracie | [Susan Mallery]

Falling for Gracie

First comes love, then comes marriage...At least, that was Gracie's plan at the ripe old age of 14. She loved 18-year-old heartthrob Riley with a desperation that made her a town legend. Even now that she's all grown up, the locals in sleepy Los Lobos won't let her forget her youthful crush. And how can she, when she's face-to-face with Riley at every turn? The one-time bad boy has come back to town seeking respectability - but the sparks that fly between them are anything but respectable!

    "The end is missing"

    As I listened to this book, parts seemed very familiar to me. As it turns out, I read the paperback a few years ago. The "ending" sent me into storage at 4am to find the book. This recording is missing the last 30 pages of the book. If you felt cheated by the ending, you were.

    Story
    "Falling for Gracie - fell short of expectations."
    What was most disappointing about Susan Mallery’s story?

    I have enjoyed many of Susan Mallery's novels. Unfortunately, "Falling for Gracie" fell short for me. I found the character's to be basically unlikable. When I read a book, such as this, for enjoyment purposes, I want to feel invested in the characters. In other words, I want to like them.

    Gracie, who was sweet, was constantly apologizing...constantly - taking responsibility for EVERYTHING on the face of the earth that ever "should o', would o', could of" gone wrong. It became pathetic, which made the story drag.

    I like Susan Mallery, though. I find many of her novels fun.

    Savannah Richards did a very good job performing the book. I think the problem was in the story, not the performance.

    If I were the editor for this book, I would have cut most of the apologies. You can express regret without constantly whining," I'm sorry". I think that many women fall into the trap of empathizing with someone's circumstances by saying, I'm sorry. I have learned that when you constantly empathize by this method, you eventually become blamed for that situation. When I find myself in this position, I now say, "I hate that for you", It conveys that you understand and feel for your friend, without taking responsibility for it.

    "best book I've read yet"

    You really need to read this book! It kept me laughing and crying! Some great "steamy" scenes with make you beg for more!! This is a wonderful story and the characters really come to life with Therese Plummer narrating.

    "Not bad at all!"

    Took a while to get into this book, but it really grew on me. Gracie is a very likable character, and the story was interesting and funny. Worth the money!

    "It is okay"

    I typically like the leading female character to be a bit stronger. Gracie was such a doormat she let everyone talk her into doing things she did not want to do. All of those things unsurprisingly put her in situations that made her look worse. This was just a little too stupid for me. I know, I know it is romance fiction but I like some parts not to be so predictable. I found myself rolling my eyes and thinking "you have got to be kidding."

    I am a Serial MultiTasker. Pretty much daily while I am at work I listen to Audiobooks. Some books I have listened to 3 to 5 times. Luv it.

    What did you love best about Falling for Gracie?

    I love Gracie and Riley. Both characters are so relatable. Getting over the past is important, put it in it's place and move forward.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Falling for Gracie?

    The cakes. O M G!! I just want to eat the cakes.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes I did want to know what happend. I wanted those who were doing wrong to get caught.


    Any additional comments?

    Healing is so important and just because you may have done some questionable things in your past doesn't mean that is who you are today. All a lesson people need to learn. We need to forgive ourselves for making those mistakes and use what we have done to make us better people and not let it define each of us.

    "Wonderful book"

    I was laughing out loud, crying and didn't care that's got to be something regarding books. It was a very funny; upbeat and very sexual book. I have listened to this book at least 6 times and everytime it was the same. Wonderful author!!! I found this book when looking at the library and was so thrilled with it. Now she is my favorite author I have listened to at least 5 books so far, and hope to listen to all of them. Thanks Susan!

    "LOS Lobos not LAS Lobos"

    It was very distracting for the narrator to constantly mispronounce the name of the town. Since it's said so many times during the story, it was pretty annoying. Other than that, I enjoyed this book.
