Product Description

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.

*THIS IS THE FULL-LENGTH SEQUEL TO THE DIRTY NOVELLA SERIES. IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT YOU READ THIS AFTER READING THE DIRTY SERIES.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Character-driven, Smart, and Real Love Story 30 December 2015
By Sunniva Dee - Published on Amazon.com
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 Dark, Gritty Perfection! 3 February 2016
By Suzanne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Stand alone or series? It really doesn’t matter to me as long as the story is GOOD and the wait between books isn’t AGES. If you’re looking for a raw, gritty, heartbreaking and also hopeful series, this baby is the one!!
Seriously, Rocky and Link’s story was just so dark, visceral that I couldn’t put the series down. And when it ended, despite how riveting it was and the inkling of a HEA at the end, it left me wanting more. So when I saw that Ms. McIntyre had gifted us this final installment, I couldn’t have been happier.

This takes place in the aftermath of Link’s quest for vengeance. Link tries to navigate daily life without the drive and purpose of avenging Olivia’s death. He feels guilt for finding love and happiness in Rocky’s arms. A betrayal to what he had with Olivia. He strives to find a way to move forward and find some sort of peace with his horrific past.

“But this is my serenity. These little moments with her. Her touch. Her laugh. Her.”

While Rocky struggles with wondering what’s next for them. Will she always be second place in Link’s life?

“I’ve tried to never let it bother me that the man I love has another woman’s name tattooed over his heart, but it’s difficult.”

Can she settle for second spot and have a future together?

“He may not have fixed what’s broken inside of me – because nobody can do that – but he helps me be okay with being damaged.”

This final book takes you on a journey through closure, hope and the promise better days for these two beautiful yet broken souls.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book was the perfect ending to a perfectly messed up love story. 29 December 2015
By Kristyd1991ish (Obsessed with Romance blog) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
There are a million questions you could ask me that I would have a hard time narrowing down to a single answer like who my favorite band is or what my favorite song is,  my favorite movie or the best book I've ever read, or which of my kids is my favorite.  Picking one would be impossible.  But I have one favorite author and the answer has been the same for the last several years....Cheryl McIntyre.  She's my answer, my only answer ever single time....and books like this are the reason.  She just always gets it right and Grit is no exception.

Dirty, the first book in this series and an absolute must read BEFORE Grit,  was a hard read, amazing and emotional, but hard.  It was gut-wenching and stomach twisting and painful but still very much a love story about surviving and finding what you need when you least expect it and you don't even know what it is.  And Grit picks up right where Dirty leaves off, with Link and Rocky still surviving, still dealing but also trying to heal and trying to do that together.

I love these characters, they are so flawed and so scarred and completely struggling to  move forward, but they are also survivors and inherently good people who have seen the very worst  the world can dish out.  Neither one of them ever expected to be in a relationship and witnessing them stumble their way through it is both heartwarming and heartbreaking.

One of the things that sets a Cheryl McIntyre book apart is that ever single thing that happens, ever action and reaction, every event, every thought or feeling a character has makes sense, it's believable within the context of the story, it`s planned and thought out and done right.  It's just all done right.  Her characters stay true to character, there's growth and change, they adapt and sometimes even surprise you, but at their core they remain the people you fell in love with. Link and Rocky are no exception.

The other thing that sets her books apart is her ability to put you in her characters' heads, to make you feel what they feel.  It's remarkable really.  When Rocky panicked, I panicked, my heart raced and my breathing picked up.  When Link got angry, I felt angry, when Rocky cried, I cried.  With ever decision they made I was right there with them. I might not have agreed with them, hell I might even have been screaming NO  at my kindle, but I was with them, feeling it, experiencing it. That...that right there is the reason I read books and Cheryl never lets me down.

I loved this book, I couldn't put it down. And the absolute best part....being there when Link and Rocky get it right, when they finally start to catch a break and when they finally start to heal.  It made every painful step worth it.   It was the perfect ending to a perfectly messed up love story.

5.0 out of 5 stars perfect conclusion ♡ LOVED it 1 April 2016
By Emmi R - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Awesome book, what a pageturner! Couldn't put it down.
Once I started reading the pages just flew by and I was back with Link and Rocky and I loved every second ♡ I missed these two and I didn't know how much I needed this sequel until I read it. It's a def must read for every reader who loved Dirty.
Cheryl McIntyre is a magician with words and she is one of the few authors whose books I'd buy blind and no matter the price.
She wrote the perfect conclusion to this series and I'm happy but also a little sad to let them go...I just love Link and Rocky and Cheryl's writing and could always read more and more and more ;)
I already see a Sometimes Never reread coming and I can't wait for „Eternally“ to release.
