Claiming Grace ( Book 1 of 2 in the Ace Security Series ) by Susan Stoker
Date of Publication: March 14, 2017
For Logan Anderson, moving on from a traumatic past means moving back to his hometown of Castle Rock, Colorado, to start a personal-security business with his brothers. But it's not long before Logan runs into Grace Mason, his best friend from high school…and the woman who never answered his letters during his Army years.
Grace was pleasantly surprised to see Logan return to Castle Rock, despite their falling-out ten years ago. Everyone always assumed they would end up together, including Grace, who had eyes only for him. But as Logan eventually escaped their town, Grace got pulled further into her family's controlling grasp—and farther away from the man she loved.
Now, united by scars both visible and not, the two must fight to free Grace from the suffocating hold of her family. But the Masons won't let go easily—and they'll do whatever it takes to keep the couple apart.
Claiming Grace has a very different feel to Ms Stoker's previous military romances. This is Grace and Logan's second chance story. Grace and Logan were each other's high school crush and reunite when Logan returns to their hometown to start ACE security with his brothers.
Grace is an incredibly endearing and strong character who blooms over the course of the book. Grace she is kind, loving, caring, sensitive and sweet, and completely starved for love and affection. Logan is a sweet, caring and loyal bad-ass alpha determined to protect others from abuse. With Logan, Grace is able to find comfort, control, love and safety.
Grace endures so much living under the thumbs of her wealthy, corrupt, manipulative and controlling parents. They constantly play with her emotions, and are quite evil individuals and seem to lack a moral compass.
Overall Claiming Grace is a very well written, emotion filled read, full of intrigue that kept me completely engaged from start to finish and I look forward to reading the next title in this series.
New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author, Susan Stoker has a heart as big as the state of Texas where she lives, but this all American girl has also spent the last fourteen years living in Missouri, California, Colorado, and Indiana. She's married to a retired Army man who now gets to follow her around the country.
She debuted her first series in 2014 and quickly followed that up with the SEAL of Protection Series, which solidified her love of writing and creating stories readers can get lost in.
