Product Description

Product Description

Graciella Snow has no idea what she wants to do with her life. She’s never known. Since her mom left when she was a kid she’s wondered what the point was to pretty much anything. Now that she’s done with college and expected to join the “real world” she knows she’d better figure it out. But first she has to deal with the house she inherited from her late mother. Going to Maine for the summer was the last thing she’d planned on, but after she meets Alexander Cole she begins to question everything she ever thought she knew.

Known in town as something of a recluse Alexander Cole has gotten used to his solitude. He’s poured himself into his work for years and it’s better this way, even if these small town gossips don’t understand. But when Grace shows up to take care of her mom’s run down beach house he can’t seem to keep his normal distance. She’d be better off if he did, but after all this time, he’s not so sure he can keep up the fight.

How can he keep her from finding out who he really is? How can she ever trust a man with a past she might never know?

Great book! An engaging story that is thought provoking as it explores delicate situations. The characters are well developed and layered in such a way that you want to know more. Cannot wait for the second book in the series to see what happens to Grace and Alex!

Forsaken grabs your attention quickly! The story reveals a complex (and yes Sexy) relationship between Alex and Graciella and suggests a more complicated connection with others involved and the past. The author treats the reader to peeks into the personalities and lives of the characters and yet a shroud of mystery keeps the reader desiring more. And more is revealed, then bang! When can we read the next book?

Alexander has kept to himself for years. He doesn't look at himself as he once did. His world is thrown into chaos when he meets Grace.

Grace has her own reasons for being in Maine. Her Mother is gone, has left her house to Grace, but Grace still doesn't understand why her Mom left her family behind.

Alexander and Grace feel the pull of one another the first time they meet. Alexander is reluctant to get close to Grace and Grace isn't letting anything out about her family either. Grace can see Alexander is keeping something back, but she doesn't understand how devastating this secret is.

Both characters are trying to move forward and find it hard to share their pasts with the other. When Alexander's secret is told to Grace, she doesn't know what to do, so she goes home to her Dad.

Once she realizes her true feelings for Alexander she needs to go back and be who she needs to be for them both.

Alexander's self doubt is felt with his isolation he has brought upon himself. You can feel the shame and humiliation that plagues him. You can understand why he has isolated himself. His loss is felt when Grace comes back and he finally opens up to her and tells her himself. The amount of courage it takes for him to open up is overwhelming.

Grace is out of her comfort zone, but you can feel her becoming a young woman who is finally ready to face her own past.

Both characters have walls built around them, but slowly you can see the walls tumbling down. Each one has been hurt and betrayed. They both have demons from their past and their growth from within is evident with every page in this story. You will be rooting for both of them to endure the pain of their past and move on to being who they are now. Now they will need to find the strength together, to be able to put the past to rest.

I can't wait to see how much these characters are going to grow and how they will adjust to their new path.

4.5 out of 5
A new author to the field and if this is anything to go by she may well be on the scene for a while.
Forsaken is the story of Alex and Graciella and it is far from an ordinary romance. This pair have enough going on to fill not just one but a library full of books – and I hope the author has a lot more up her sleeve because by the time I had read the last word, I was far from ready to say goodbye.
The book takes hold very early on and it is relentless, there are so many twists and turns that keeping it all in order is not always an easy task, but it made me hungry for more, I needed to carefully read what was going to happen next but I was determined not to skim through – they had their claws into me and nothing but complete attention was going to suffice.
The ebb and flow of the book, was more like a hike in the Himalayas, up on minute, absolutely positive I knew what was happening and feeling smug and then bam- hurtling down the side of the cliff that the author had just launched me off – Rachel you are a cruel mistress.
The story does take a look at what I would hasten to describe as some more sensitive situations but it is not done for any form of gratuitous sensationalism, I thought the author handled very delicate topics with care and consideration.
But overall how would I sum the book up, well that is easy it was super – I am looking forward to the next book and to get a bit more from both Alex and Graciella, they have a way to go yet but it is going to be so much fun being watching them as they go.
Cleverly constructed and sensitively written this is a book that you will find hard to put down and even harder to put into words.

Grace Snow is stunned to find that the mother who left when she was 7 has passed away and left her a house in Maine. Grace has no idea why her mother left, so she heads to Maine to see if she can find the answers she so desperately wants. When she gets there she finds the house in need of serious repairs and upgrades so she hires a local construction company to get the job done.
Alexander Cole is a bit of a mystery. He keeps to himself and he throws himself into his work and he plans to keep things the way they are. That is until he comes face to face Grace. He does his best to stay away from her but he is finding it impossible.
It doesn’t take long before the two come together, but Alex has a secret and it’s a big secret, he knows that if Grace ever finds out she won’t want to be with him but that doesn’t stop him from being with her. Grace can see that there is something going on with Alex but he won’t open to her and it’s causing them serious issues in their relationship. Things come to a head when the pair are jumped in an alley outside of an art museum and Alex’s past starts to come to light.

This is a good mystery. There are secrets around every corner. Alex and Grace have some serious issues to over-come and of course there's the question of Grace's mom. I am anxious to see how everything plays out. I am looking forward to seeing Alex and Grace move forward in their relationship.
