Where does For the Love of Gracie rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
For the Love of Gracie written by Amy McClung was a wonderful page turner! The story is about a young woman named Gracie who's dating a man named Hudson in the ever so weather changing state of Tennessee. As you read on the two have been dating for at least a couple of months when you're introduced to her gay friend Cameron who Hudson becomes quickly jealous of until he realized the guy likes men. Gracie thought the two were going to be a decent couple since she always seemed to attract hot men who were pretty good in bed. But when Cam introduces her to his new friend Ashton, sparks began to fly. She felt the feint butterflies in her stomach type of feeling that caused her toes to curl. She had difficulty keeping him out of her head, meanwhile she's still dating Hudson but the man starts to show a dark side.
I liked how this story flowed from the beginning until the end with strong characters but the plot line was practically announced to the reader mid way through the story, by chapter 10 I could practically predict the ending of this story and already knew everything about the characters. It seemed like the plot was sort of dragged on until the end, I think this story would've been better as a much shorter story. Although, the author did use plenty of lovely descriptive words to accent the setting and the emotions between the main characters. All in all, I rate it 4 stars.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Cameron because he was funny.
What does Melissa Moran bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
It allowed me to concentrate on different characters easier and their demeanor.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The middle when Hudson attacked Gracie and Cameron was trying to defend her.
Any additional comments?
All in all it was a nice read.
