Grace @FilthyBlueBird @VaughnAsher #YouAreCaredFor
So the movie star says. But his idea of cared for isn’t the same as mine. Obviously a #Douche.

The Blue Bird has trust issues. And tantrum issues. And commitment issues.

Why is he so damn sexy? How will I ever get out from under Asher’s thumb if I can’t stop thinking about his tongue on my buttons? #HottiesNeedToPlayFair
Huss is a genius at throwing in plot twists and turning a story on its head. And that's exactly what happened in Block.
At the end of Like, Grace and Vaughn were in a good place. But then Vaughn, feeling a storm coming, makes some decisions that leave Grace reeling. And when the storm hits, Grace is rather heartbroken but decided. Things with Vaughn aren't going to go anywhere. Vaughn, however, is equally, if not more so, determined that things with Grace are going to move forward. And so there's a clash of words and bodies that leads to decisions being made and an even bigger media nightmare. Plus secrets being revealed.
I'm loving the irony that is Grace and Vaughn. Grace having been dreaming of Vaughn being everything she could want and then finding reality to be so far from the dream. And Vaughn has found exactly what he needs and never thought to dream of. Grace wants to stay strong and protect her heart. Vaughn seems to want to put his heart on the line but he doesn't know the rules. Grace is a private person, needing to keep her past hidden. Vaughn is a very public person whom the public believes they know well - but no one knows the real Vaughn...not even Vaughn. So in a way, this relationship has sparked so much personal discovery for them both. Vaughn wants to be open but Grace isn't sure she's ready to trust him with her life or her heart.
The plot twists, including an appearance by a character we've previously met, have me so very anxious for the next installment. If y'all haven't started this series yet, hop on it. It's fun but if you think you know what it's all about, you're probably wrong. It's such a good story - it's deep - with some sexy tweeting thrown in!
