If Grace Johnson knew one thing at all, it was that all men were dirt bags. All men...except Noah. "I was lost in his eyes. Lost in his tears. My goal was to pull him out of the darkness...if even if it dragged me in as well." If Noah Bennet knew one thing at all, it was he needed Grace Johnson. Needed her...desperately.

i really loved this book and the first one. I just wish there wasn't so much foul language and so much sex. sometimes i feel like Ms. Elliot uses a lot of sex scenes instead of storytelling. it gets boring having to listen to so much sex scenes. try giving us more story and less sex.
thank you.
