"Bev was the kind of woman who went after the things she wanted. And lately, she'd come to realize that what - who- she wanted was Griffin."
I have loved Griffin since Wicked Grind. And when I saw that he was in this series as well, I was so hoping he would get his happily ever after! This has to be my favorite book of this series, hands down!!
Griffin Blaize stays out of the spotlight for a reason. Severely scarred following being burned as a child, he's content hiding behind his computer, his words, and his ever-present hoodie. As one by one, his friends find happiness with their soulmates, he can't help but long for the same thing, knowing it will never happen. After all, who would love him with the way he looks anyway? Beverly? He's wanted her since their first meeting but he's keeping her at arm's length to protect his heart from wanting something it can never have. But, now the safety of his privacy is threatened when his script is becoming a movie, with Beverly in the leading role. Long hours of script revisions put her so close to him, it's pure torture. Should he act on his feelings? How will handle having to be in Beverly's celebrity spotlight, when all this time he's been able to hide away? Will he ever be able to be comfortable in his own skin and be the man she needs him to be, or is it just easier to walk away now? Which leaves a bigger scar - the burns, or losing her?
Beverly Martin read the script and knew she had to do it. She needed this part, and she needed to meet the man behind the words. Meeting Griffin changed her life. She knew he'd been scarred as a child but he never let anyone get close enough - never let anyone see. All she saw was the man - not the scars - and he was hot. Good looks, ripped bod, and a creative mind that blew her away. She knew she'd fall in love with him from their first meeting, but it's been an uphill battle to get out of that friendship zone. She'll fight for him - for them. But he has to meet her in the middle. She won't settle for only half of him. She wants him all in, or not at all. Is her love for him enough to give him the courage to come out of hiding and stand beside her? Doesn't he realize that losing him would scar her too.
My heart broke for Griffin, but when he finally gives in? Holy Hannah is that man fine! Hello, Mr. November! I'd highly recommend this series to everyone!
