MISSING GRACE by S.L. SCOTT :: REVIEW

A Standalone story of everlasting love and hope

SYNOPSIS

Move on with your life, they said.

Forget her, they said.

But how could Ben Edwards forget the woman who was supposed to be his forever? When Grace Stevens disappeared—without a word, without a trace—she took half his soul with her.

Despite the heartbreak, Ben tried. He tried to take their advice by pursuing his career. He tried to find fulfillment in his work. He tried to find peace. Grace had been the love of his life. Her fingerprints were on every surface of his existence. He had success and wealth. He had everything, except her.

Then fate stepped in one serendipitous night. The hope he’d held on to for three long, agonizing years appeared before him in the form of a picturesque beauty.

Was she real, or an apparition returning to haunt him? He wasn’t sure, but he wouldn’t stop until he found his missing love. Every minute mattered, and he wouldn’t waste a second chance.

MISSING GRACE is available to purchase below for ONLY 99c/99p

4 everlasting stars

‘…the search for Grace became an addiction, as he couldn’t believe she would be gone forever.’

We are incredibly aware that it’s easy to spoil this story for other readers so we won’t say anything about the story at all. We hope every reader gets to experience this beautiful story of love, grief, hope and heart-break as the S.L Scott intended. We don’t think we would have enjoyed this book as much as we did if we’d known what would transpire. So please go into this story bind.

‘Every spare minute that wasn’t dedicated to work, eating or sleeping he spent searching for his love.’

We don’t think soul mate romances come much more powerful than Missing Grace. It was overwhelmingly emotional, passionate, frustrating and heart-breaking. It was a reading race against time as we wanted to know what happened and why. We wanted Ben to find his peace, his calm, his happiness and his resolution. We wanted Ben to truly live again and for his heart to once more be whole. As for missing Grace; we teared up at the thought of what happened, fearing the worst. We hoped Ben’s relentless perseverance would pay off, in order to find an answer. We wanted this beautiful couple safe, somehow.

“You were taken from me.”

We pretty much read Missing Grace in one sitting, our emotions took a pounding and we were on tenterhooks worried were this story was going. We had so many questions and never felt truly safe. Once thing we never questioned though was Ben’s incredible love for Grace. Our hearts bled for this man who clearly loved with his entire being, never letting go of a love that would live till the end of time. Ben stole our hearts, completely. He was the heart and soul of this story. A beautiful man who never lost hope.

“Destiny is shaped by choice, not chance.”

THE RESISTANCE by S L SCOTT :: REVIEW

the resistance

SYNOPSIS

You don’t choose when.

You don’t choose where.

And you don’t get to choose who you fall in love with.

The minute he opened his sexy mouth, Holliday Hughes should have known Jack Dalton was trouble. His smooth pickup lines, broad shoulders, and ridiculously handsome face charmed her right out of her clothes. She gave into her desires, the instant attraction blinding her to the obvious.

One night. That was all it took for Holliday’s world to be flipped on its axis. Jack Dalton was cocky. Smug. Volatile. Demanding. He ignited something deep inside her like no other, but there was something more to this brooding bad boy. There was a dark side to him she couldn’t help but be drawn to.

Torn between what she knew about him and a mysterious side he tried to hide, could she walk away or was he simply too hard to resist?

Jenny & Gitte: 4.5 Stars

 “I’ve got a dark side that slaughters hopes and dreams on a daily basis.” 

Jenny:  Well didn’t this book take us by surprise a few times Gitte, and in a really good way I might add. The prologue grabbed me immediately, I inhaled every word and the author had me engrossed and falling in love with Dalton, Holliday and their story from the get go. And..We’re not giving anything away about this story because surprise is the element here!

“You’ve always been in here,” he says, patting his chest over his heart. “We just hadn’t met yet.”

 Cue the happy face right about now because I absolutely loved The Resistance. What about you?

Gitte: Oh wow, I bloody loved this one. I fell in love with all the characters, loved the surprises and twists. Loved the writing; the emotion conveyed through the words to me, the reader.

“Be my angel. Just for the night.” – Dalton

I just couldn’t put this one down I was quite simply swept away in the story of Dalton and Holliday.

Jenny:  Holliday and Dalton were such refreshing characters. The story, though we’ve read this theme a few times, felt quite different and completely enthralled me.  Holliday was so strong, loving, beautiful, successful and so forthright. No back and forth procrastinating with this woman. She wore her heart on her sleeve and she never caused me a minute of frustration.

“I can’t battle your demons, Dalton.” – Holliday

 She was a perfect balance for the volatile, troubled and loving Dalton don’t you think Gitte?

Gitte: Absolutely, as you say we’ve read similar stories before, but this one felt unique. The context and symbolism so enticing and heartfelt.

“Dare to dream….For without dreams we have nothing to look forward to.” – Holliday

The romance evoked such strong emotions in me. Holliday was definitely a strong female character; she was real and no-nonsense. Her strength was immeasurable; her support and her sense of self inspiring.

Jenny: Jack Dalton. Wow! What can we say about this beautiful, tortured and conflicted man? I loved him! He was divine and L S Scott brought Dalton, with all his demons, secrets, passion and insecurities to life so vividly. Dalton certainly stole heart. I believed him. I felt every emotion he felt and as much as he tried me a few times, my heart really went out to him as he out to him as he struggled to come to grips with who he was and the feelings he was experiencing.

“You see my flaws and my good side. You see who I am, not just what others want me to be.” – Dalton

There were a few surprises and twists along the way in this fantastic read that I couldn’t put down. Passion, romance, swooning, lots of heat, a gorgeous book boyfriend and a strong relatable heroine. A definite recommend from me and I really hope we hear more from Dalton & Holliday because I didn’t want to say goodbye, and more Danny too don’t you think Gitte?

Gitte: Oh, Dalton owned my heart whilst I was with him; I went through every emotion he did and I understood his pain, his struggle and his desire for normalcy; his want of pure untainted love. Love in its basic form, free of pre-conceptions and labels. A love that came in the form of a girl who believed in herself and demanded to be heard, respected and loved. A girl who saw past a façade, past the imperfect to see the -truth- the perfection and the love.

“Don’t ever lose yourself in somebody else…It’s hard to remember who you used to be if they disappear.

I have to say I felt sad to let them all go, Jenny. And absolutely, I hope we hear more, especially from Danny too!! Danny needs his man-card back! ♥
