Product Description

Link and Rocky's story continues.
Three. This is my number. The sum of reasons why I continue to go on.
One: She needs me.
Two: I have to protect her.
And three: With her, I feel human.
But the weight of a man’s secrets is a thousand pounds on his shoulders. Two thousand more on his chest. Trapping him.
Crushing him.
My secrets are slaughtering me.
Fear and regret—of what I’ve done, of whom I’ve become, and of what I’ve let go—are dragging me into a hole, and I can’t claw my way out.
The deeper I sink, the farther I push her away.
The farther she goes, the more my mind spirals. Down into a black abyss. It’s dark here. So damn dark.
She needs to know what I’ve done. I have to tell her. But how can I battle the darkness if I lose my light?
This is what my life is now. I’m a shadow of a man in a scarred body, longing to live again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Character-driven, Smart, and Real Love Story 30 December 2015
By Sunniva Dee - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
You could read Grit separately from Dirty, the first book about Link and Rocky, but I agree with the author that the reader would enjoy it even more by starting at the beginning. Also, if you haven't read Dirty yet, after Grit, you'll obsess and dive straight into Dirty anyway.

Cheryl McIntyre has die-hard fans who reads everything she writes, and I understand why: it's the consistency in her authorship. If you crave character-driven, smart, and real love stories of the kind that put your heart through the wringer, then hers are must-reads. Where Dirty was a dark, violent romance treating crimes not often spoken about, Grit picks up and focuses on what happens after that happily-ever-after of the first book. I can count on one hand the dark romances who have gone there - beyond that HEA - to follow the characters' lives without inventing some new adventure to push them into.

"Link's quest for revenge ended in my redemption. Or so I thought. The part I didn't fully understand is that recovery is a process." This is how the first chapter begins. When two permanently scarred humans try to digest their pasts, how do they manage their guilts and fears, meld them with their day-to-day routines? Exactly how strong does their love need to be for them to survive as a couple?

The banter with Link's guy friends at the gym made for a nuanced book. It made me smile, even laugh at times. Then there's the subtle sexiness that is Link himself. His innate protective attitude toward Rocky, and his penchant for what Rocky calls "one of the many perks of working at his gym:" office sex with the boss.

Sometimes, their dialog is masterfully simple, cute, and hot all at once:
"I want you," he husks. "Right here. Right now."
"That's good," I breathe, "because I want to give myself to you. Right here. Right now."

But then with seamless expertise Cheryl brings us back to the essence of what Link and Rocky face: "Life is an ugly and wondrous thing. It beats you to a pulp and rewards you for surviving. Over and over, it's an endless loop of ups and downs. Goods, and bads. Pleasures and pains. Gifts and losses. We power through."

We know Rocky and Link so well by the end of this book. We root for them. We love them. And Grit is easily on my top ten list for 2015.
5.0 out of 5 stars Such a tortured man... 6 February 2017

I’m ashamed to say that this is one of those series where I picked up part one, because it was free… so duh, and then lost it in my massive TBR abyss… When I saw and read the synopsis for Grit I was immediately sucked in. Imagine my chagrin when I realized Grit was the full length follow up to the Dirty series, of which there are five parts. Six if you count Grit.
So, I bought the other four that I was missing and dove in. OMFG! I loved this book! You know you’re reading a great story when it makes you question everything you thought you knew about yourself. I mean, what’s done to Link, his girlfriend Olivia and to Rocky is horrible and I thought they deserved what Link had planned for them, no question. But…. I’m ashamed to say that for a second, just a second, McIntyre had me feeling sorry for a few of the them!
Link is such a tortured man. He has a lot of guilt around what happened to Olivia and I get that, but he really wasn’t to blame for anything. He has carried around this massive load of self hate for four years and I felt bad for Rocky because she has to decide whether she can, or even if she wants to, compete with the ghost of Olivia. I give the woman credit, I’m not sure I’d have tried. How do you compete against someone who is perfect in your lover’s eyes and will never lose that perfection.
This book was definitely a rollercoaster of emotion. Every time I thought that Link and Rocky were going to finally find some happiness, something new would happen. It’s also got a good bit of tension running through it from beginning to end. Link has set himself on a course of action that he feels like he’s honor bound to complete. And you’re kept guessing whether Link is going to ruin the second chance he’s been given with Rocky but you still want him to finish what he started.
Don’t be me! Pick this up! I’m kicking myself for passing this up until now.
5.0 out of 5 stars The continuation of a love worth fighting for. A story I will never forget! 5++ stars! 2 January 2016

Paraphrasing a bit from Grit and from the perfect tortured man in Link, this is truly the book I didn't even know I wanted but am thrilled nonetheless that it was written.

Dirty was such a tough series to read. The heartbreaking story of a brutal crime that forces the lone survivor to enact revenge until he meets the woman who would offer a chance to rethink his path. And when a beautiful love blossomed from all the horror, I fell hard for these characters and was satisfied with the hard-fought conclusion.

With Grit, however, we get to revisit Link and Rocky and see how they are faring after that bit of drama came their way, again, and what the future holds for each of them. Together, they are still tip-toeing around their feelings, with Rocky still unsure Link will ever truly let go of the love of his life, Livie. Yet the passion is still burning bright, each being the other's source of comfort, whether in the form of a hug or a quick ride to ecstasy both so strongly desire.

I loved that the author didn't make their unconventional HEA easy. Link and Rocky are both struggling with past events and their road to both redemption and complete happiness is certainly a long one. But that's exactly the way it should be. Theirs is a sacred love, one borne out of mutual need to forget. And now they can have it all but will the past continue to plague their future? Can they really move on? Oh my, I was at loss most of this time around. I honestly didn't know which way the pendulum would swing but was determined to see it through no matter what.

Cheryl McIntyre continues to captivate me with her words and this surprise novel could not have been a better way to start 2016 for me.

I do recommend, however, that you start with the Dirty series which is all in one bundle now, to get the entire story before starting Grit. It will mean more if you do in my opinion.

A huge 5 stars once again for a story that has happily woven it's way into my soul.

It's an amazing end to a heart wrenching story. This book was filled with emotional conflict, self realization, devotion, heartache, and suspense. I love these characters and the way Cheryl McIntyre allowed their story to unfold. This is a series I am putting on my "read again and again" shelf.

So ,Grit was everything I had hoped it would be times a million. If I could give it more than 5 stars, I would. As always Cheryl blew me away with her writing. Captivating and emotional. Rocky and Link are taken on another rollercoaster ride to hell and back. They're faced with Bates again and new obstacles.
Will they over come those obstacles and have a true, and healthy relationship and future?
You will have to read to find out.
I enjoyed weveey single second and I cried, I laughed and I was taken back with emotion and how much this story will always stay with me. One of my most favorite series and cheacters EVER.

"But if you want to know the truth, it wouldn’t matter where either of us lived. I don’t give a s*** about an address—you’re my home.”

“My devotion for you,” he breathes, “is greater than all other things.”
