The rule was simple—don't fall in love with a student. Drake had never had that problem—not until he met the buxom brunette in the bar. Grace was one of a kind, virginal but far from chaste. When she wanted him to teach more than history, he was left with a choice that could ruin them both.
Grace was always the good girl, until she met her wild best friend, Christina, who pushed her out of her shell. She fell head over heels for the sexy, young college professor, but when everything shattered around her, she was left with figuring out who she really was. Her journey led her somewhere she never imagined, but along the way she learned that even the wildest roses have to put down roots in a place called home.
WAYS TO STALK SCARLETT
Saving Grace by Scarlett Jade is a beautiful story about coming-of-age for a young lady. A story about how precious and beautiful life can be. The character development was well written. The reader felt the pain and anguish that each of the main characters felt. Ms. Jade made you want to help, be there for them, she made me care for them and cry for them.
Grace is not so different from any girl heading off to college for the first time. At least, no different than any teenage girl who has never really lived. You know where your nervous and excited at the same time. A teenage girl who is expected to act and do and live exactly like her parents think she should. Once arriving at college and meeting her new roommate Christina, Grace decides it is time for her to make some changes in her life. A new haircut, and some new clothes work some amazing magic. Christina teaches Grace that it is ok to be different; after all, Christina is her own free spirit! (I've always told this to my children, and I think all parents should) A person does not have to fit into a little box to be likeable or considered beautiful. Why does society or the media get to dictate what is considered beautiful?
Grace goes with Christina to a bar the weekend before classes start and Grace meets a man. Things spiral quickly out of control. Is Grace really an adult? Is Grace really capable of handling herself in the situation she finds herself in? Grace finds that she has to spread her wings to find herself; not what everyone else wants her to be.
It is Drake that Grace meets that first night at the bar. Drake? thinks he is a very good looking guy!! Poor Grace,how was she to know that Drake was in fact her college professor? Talk about trouble! Can we say FORBIDDEN ROMANCE!!! Wanting something you can't have. The journey for Drake and Grace is dangerous for them; as they both quickly learn. When Grace looks to her mom for support, she learns some secrets that she never would have imagined.
Argh....cliff hanger....to be continued....? (I need book 2 please!) In the end, a happily-ever-after could still be possible.
