Grace @FilthyBlueBird @VaughnAsher ­ Dabbing lips with a napkin. #ThatAllYouGot?

Finally... Grace sees me in a different light. The banter is flirty, the sex is fun, and the future looks fabulous. I just hope she feels the same way when she finds out what I did.

Oh my! That kinda sums up my feelings throughout this installment...with varying degrees of emphasis and perhaps a few colorful words thrown in. ;)

In Status, Grace is hiding after having run from the media maelstrom as well as from Vaughn. And Vaughn is having no part of that. When Grace finally, finally comes to her senses decides to listen, I was whooping with joy. As she and Vaughn talk things out, little bits and pieces of Grace are revealed - those bits and pieces she's been hiding from the world for the last 10 years. Man...

Grace did quite a bit of waffling and although she's not a stranger to this behavior, it made me want to bang my head against a wall this time. But then Vaughn would explain her behavior and how it relates to Grace's secrets, and I'd feel better about it.

Vaughn, this man is *dreamy*, and he is completely head over heels for Grace. He'd have to be to fight for Grace like he does. He is her prince. (I'll take him if it turns out Grace doesn't want him ;) While Status is more about Grace revealing things and Vaughn hiding things...well, a thing in particular, I still feel as though these two are still on journeys of self-discovery. I'm hoping that path keeps leading them toward one another. Grace has a lot to work through but the man Vaughn is becoming will be the man to stand beside while she does so.

That thing Vaughn did in Block was...well, you're going to have to read Status to find out what he did. I will tell you this...the cliffhanger at the end of Status is going to BLOW.YOUR.MIND! Naturally, JA has to throw an even bigger, rather unexpected twist into things. I did say she was a genius at this. :) I'm already contemplating various possibilities - all of which are probably wrong. I need Profile now!


  1. I love Huss's books sooooo much. I can't wait to try this new series.

  2. Okay Brandee, if I ever get out of my huge reading slump , I'm definitely giving this series a try. So glad you enjoyed the latest installment!

  3. So many books I need to read but one of these days I will get around to this author. I know you love everything she writes and I especially like the sound of these books. Wonderful review!

  6. Oh cliffhangers! I think I will wait to read this book until after the series is finished so I'll be on the lookout for your review when that happens.


Now you know what I think...what are your thoughts??
