Summary: STATE OF GRACE Money makes the world go round - that's what twenty-something Grace Reeves is learning. Stuck in a grind where everyone's ahead apart
GRACE UNDER PRESSURE So when older, sexy and above all, wealthy art-dealer Vaughn appears, she's intrigued against her will. Could she handle being a sugar daddy's arm-candy?
SAVING GRACE Soon Grace is thrown into a world of money and privilege, at Vaughn's beck and call in return for thousands of pounds in luxurious gifts, priceless clothes - and cash. She's out of her depth. Where's the line between acting the trophy girlfriend, and selling yourself for money? And, more importantly, whatever happened to love?
His proposition is possibly a bit sleazy. No not possibly. It is. He wants to buy her. Literally. He wants her to be his date for various social functions, in exchange for money... Naturally she's offended but when her financial situation deteriorates she takes him up on his offer, signing a contract. Their relationship will change everything; most of all them. They constantly hurt each other. The completely misunderstood each other. They are both so completely flawed. So flawed that I almost hate them at times. "Don't you see, you're putting me in an impossible position? You're offering me things - big, life-changing things - that I want to turn down, but I can't and then I'm, like, beholden to you. I owe you and I end up doing whatever it is you want, even if everything inside me is telling me not to... Please don't do this to me." Even at the end of this book I'm convinced they are probably over. right up until the last moment and a part of me thinks it might be better that way. Then when everything comes together, I can't help but wonder if there is more to this story, that hasn't yet been told.
I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
