    Like, I m gonna finish reading this disaster, but I have to stop reading for a moment and start bitching This story is so fucking ridiculous, I can t understand how it s rated as high as it is If you have any intention of reading this book, you absolutely need to keep reading this review because I m about to save you from a rage fit Buckle up, bitches Also, trigger warning for parental abuse it s not violent, but it s fucked up.So the main character is Grace, who is about to tell her parents that she s totally fucking done living under their thumb This is after they did this all this crazy shit handcuffed her to the dining room chair and left her there overnight as punishment threatened to destroy the family of the boy she was tutoring in high school because she was spending too much time tutoring poor white trash had her involuntarily committed to a psychiatric hospital for a month when she tried to move out after college threatened to have her boyfriend kicked out of the army if she spent too much time with him belittled her, humiliated her, and emotionally tortured her at every turn over the last 28 years threatened to ruin the business of her best friend if she didn t end their friendship hired spies to keep track of her every moment of every day and night returned love letters from her army boyfriend, even wrote back leave me alone to a few of them parents hiding letters is literally my least favorite trope denied her food to starve her into a smaller dress size are currently attempting to arrange a marriage between her and an unwilling bachelor to strengthen their business ties and also to steal the inevitable offspring to raise as their own, as one doesAnd those are just the things that I can remember off the top of my head I guarantee I missed several Point is, they are batshit insane parents But Grace is also batshit insane because she s like I just want them to love me They need me My mother said she had chest pains and she needs me to dust her chandelier because the three maids they have can t do it So tell me Even knowing only half the things her parents have done, is it at all reasonable for Grace to attempt to sit her parents down and tell them that she s moving out, she s getting her own job, and that she s going to date the poor white trash army boy that they chased off years before IS IT IS THERE ANY WAY FOR THIS SCENE TO END OTHER THAN GRACE SHACKLED TO HER BED UNTIL SHE CHANGES HER MIND No There is not And that s basically how the scene ended I have been throwing my hands in the air since the beginning when Logan decides to start a company to help people that have been abused but DIDN T THINK THAT EMOTIONAL ABUSE WAS A THING And when I say I ve been throwing my hands in the air, I really do mean literally Every few pages, it s just like What the fuck, are you for serious right now But I kept skimming because I ve had some experience with batshit insane and abusive parents I wanted to know how the hell this was gonna go down Because sometimes the worst villains have the best takedowns And then insane characters usually get great takedowns, too So insane villains should be a double dose of awesome, right I guess we ll see, cuz I m gonna keep reading now.OH MYFUCKING GOD THIS STUUPID WOMAn WHAT THE SHIT ARE YOU DoINGLogan shows up at her parent s house asking to see Grace and her parents let her out of the shackles to clean up and be presentable They threaten her to behave and tell him everything s fine, that she just disappeared off the face of the Earth because she s a little under the weather AND THIS BITCH DOES IT No Oh thank god you re here, they ve kept me locked up and starving for days Please god, you have to help me No no, that would be too fucking logical No, she does exactly as Mommy Dearest says and then lets them put her back in shackles for a few days What is this Is this book a joke Holy Mackerel You guys She does it again Her parents let her out so she can have a lovely formal dinner with the family they re trying to marry her into Four fucking people in the house and she sits through dinner like she s not been shackled to a bed for a week and guaranteed to head right back there after dinner Are you fucking kidding me This is not possible At this point, Grace deserves to stay shackled up with her parents ruling her life She is clearly incapable of thinking for herself This girl is literally the stupidest fucking character I ve ever read I m actually putting this book on the wtf shelf just for that How could anyone write such a dumbass At least the hero finally realized emotional abuse is real when he saw Mommy Dearest harshly grip Grace s chin, right Makes sense to me view spoiler It doesn t hide spoiler

    This was so much than a love story Logan, Blake and Nathan Anderson grew up in an abusive home They made it out but so many don t, including their father Yes, you read that right, their father As crazy as is it sounds, their mother was the monster in the night They ve returned to Castle Rock, Colorado to right the wrongs ACE Security, their father s namesake, has a mission to protect those who have no voice, to help those who can t help themselves They didn t realize how busy they d beor how close their clients would be All three boys fled Castle Rock and the bad memories, the moment they turned 18 but a piece of Logan stayed behind with pretty, perfect Grace Mason She deserved so much better than him and he guessed she figured that out since she returned all his letters unopened He should hate her but he never could quite shake off that teenage crush Grace Mason lives with her own monsters A picture perfect facade hides Grace s nightmare The lengths her parents will go to in order to control her life shock even Grace herself Years of emotional manipulation, mental abuse and crippling alienation come to a head when Logan Anderson, the only thing Grace has ever wanted for herself, returns to town Can Logan see past his own pain in order to save Grace She did it again I don t know how but she always gets me all choked up Susan Stoker is fearless when it comes to tackling the hard stuff PTSD, disabilities, mental illness and now, abuse I identified with this book in many ways having grown up in a home with a bipolar mother When it was good, it was great, when it was bad, it was BAD I craved her affection and approval but so often received the opposite, among other things I promised myself I d never let anyone treat me like she did Until I woke up one day to realize I d allowed myself to fall into a relationship with someone that demeaned, belittled and mentally abused me, without the slightest idea how it happened I cringed when Logan said there s no such thing as emotional abuse but I knew I could sit back confident that Susan was about to deliver an education And that she did I applaud her for this fearless use of her voice So many think they re alone in what they re going through and books like these can help to show them they re not This is than a love story, it s the battle and the battlecry It s the disease and the cure Well done.

    KIND SPOILERISH SPOILER I did not finish This book 60% Unfortunately,I confess this book had in it to be good.Even with my annoyance with the heroine.But this is not and adult book.There s zero smut.Not one single hot scene to save this book.This looks like one of those silly teenagers mysteries, like one of SCOOBY DOO episodes, where the gang have to find out who the bad guys are, in this case, the heroine s parents I believe, one can be emotionally controlled, but not in the way it was in this book Her parents had her hand cuffed to a chair, then in her bedroom and even had her committed in a mental hospital.And it seems like they had spies everywhere, I mean EVERYWHERE, in their small town all the way to Denver, you know, that small city in Colorado Lol So they knew everything the h was doing I mean, EVERYTHING I think there s no secret agency to compare the power of these 2 Jus ott ridiculous At this point I don t care any And again, adding the lack of smut, nada, nothing not , zero, zilch to at least make this book bearable, I won t keep defying me I d rather watch WHAT S NEW SCOOBY DOO UPDATE MARCH 29th I started to read this as a dare to myself 17% in and it s as ridiculous as I thought it would be I m sorry, I know I don t know every household situation in the world Buy the pathetic situation this heroine is in is completely her fault Unless you re brain washed or is part of a cult, not one in their late 20s would allow their parents to be so manipulative And speak to her the way they did They even committed her to a mental illness hospital because she tried to rent an apartment in another town and they found out I ll brave myself through the end cause I want to see with my own eyes the development of the situation The cold hearted bitch I am wouldn t want to be friends with this weak human and also would slap her a few times Whatever is happening to her, it s her own fault Besides the endless inner thoughts what happened with dialogues and people interaction I ll grab my wine and keep reading this literature Or litter ature Sorry. but not sorry At all Not a tiny bit NopeI will read it just out of curiosity My expectations are already low, because of my cynic way to read books Anywho. preconceived ideas apart because I have some, and I m not sorry Unless her family is part of a cult and I m sure we know a couple living in a secluded land I don t think in the regular world a 20 years old plus woman, socializing with other people normally, would be so controlled.But the jury is out and I ll start this so I can see with my own intolerant eyes.A bit harsh and unnecessary, but, c est la vie

    Logan Anderson moves back to his hometown of Castle Rock, Colorado, to start a personal security business with his brothers Grace Mason was his best friend from high school and the woman who never answered his letters during his Army years Both cared deeply for each other, but both thought they had each moved on and forgotten about their childhood friendship and love for each other When they find out that Grace s parents are responsible for her never receiving his letters, the reforge their friendship When Grace s emotionally abusive and controlling parents try to keep them apart, the two must fight to free Grace from the suffocating hold of her family Grace s parents use whatever means including illegal they want to try to keep the couple apart and keep her under their thumb, but Logan refuses to give up now that he s found his love again.This book has a good amount of suspense It does dive into some serious physical and emotional abuse without being too graphic There is some sexual content, but it s well within context and there is plenty of plot The characters are well developed and well written No cliffhanger and ends with HEA There will be a continuation in the next book in the series, but each book can be read as a standalone This was an excellent start to her new series Can t wait for the next book

    Claiming Grace is a second chance romance that won t be for the faint of heart Both main characters grew up with abusive parents While Logan was able to get away from the abuse, Grace didn t 10 years after Logan left town, he s back with his brothers for good and will learn that Grace s life was like his than he knew.I like the approach the author took The abuse Grace suffers is often times not recognized A lot of people don t realize that emotional abuse can be damaging than physical abuse People who have been mentally abused can be broken down to the point of not being able to function independently This is where people who ve never been in a situation like this may not understand why someone doesn t just leave This was a great way to educate others to be open minded It s a beautiful but sad story that makes the ending a lot sweeter ARC provided by NetGalley.

    Logan and Grace were cute. but they were frustrating Claiming Grace was about second chances at love. but it s also about abuse All kinds of abuse because that s what Logan and Grace have in common Logan s mom used to hit him and his brothers Then there s Grace who s parents constantly abuse her mentally Ugh, these parents in this town are drinking something I hated them all Well, not Brad s parents. they seem to be the only normal ones Besides hating the parents, it s like Logan and Grace were just frustrating to read about in the beginning I honestly didn t end up liking them until the end Well, cause it was over but it s like they stop being whiny and did something about it.Grace was meh I wish she used her backbone than just talking about it I just felt like I was getting mixed information about her Don t say she s strong but make her act the opposite It was just confusing and annoying Other than that, I liked the book and flew through it.
