about going after what you want He is the one that made her see what she could haveThegoing after what you want He is the one that made her see what she could haveThe unexpected well I m really thinking hereI didn t really expect to see Sam drink the way he did He wasn t a drunk or alcoholic but he used that as a crutch to his feeling about his father Which I guess he character seemed stronger than that to me but ike I said the bigger the man the harder they fallThen there is the sister s rud affair I wasn t expecting that You will have to read to see what I am talking aboutThe PredictableThe only thing predictable was that she worked a funeral home and you knew there would be talk of death That really was itSmut Factor There really was none that The sex scenes were descriptive I mean this is an erotic novel what would you expect and the book delivered But it wasn t Talking to Dragons (Enchanted Forest Chronicles, like in your face all the time which was nice The scenes were even funWhat Pleased MeThe realness of the emotions coming from Grace She is funeral director in a small town I grew up and stillive in a small town AND people do talk Even people you think are you friends So her habit of paying for sex does not seem too outlandish I mean come on we all know in a small town who would want to date the person Talking to Dragons living with the dead Men are freaky that way And especially being that she is the son her father would want to take over the business she is doing the best she know how to doWhat Displeased MeThere is really nothing evenooking at the bo. From the one thing that would eventually cut far too deepBut Sam was a mistake Literally I signed on to pick up a stranger at a bar but took Sam home instead And now that I've felt his heat his sweat and everything else can I really go back to impersonalLet's just hope he never finds out about my other ife. The most part I keep thinking if only Sam knew that the first person to pay Jack for sex was Dan That would make for a very very interesting sceneOf course even before page 324 Sam kept popping up to be all funny and charming and persistent I forgot about that Inexcusable on my part As I did his issues with his family and the guilt he carried that eventually came between him and Grace Ah that Sam and that Grace made me cry the bastards Good tears in the end though July 20144 starsThere are times when after only one book you know you have found yourself a favorite author That is how I felt about Megan Hart after reading Broken and so far I haven t been proven wrong I d never really gone deep into why I The Drowning Man love her books I just knew they were awesome And uite frankly Hart s books usually get me so emotionally involved that I have no time or the wish to think about anything else Well Stranger was a bit different Regardless of the heroine s profession I found it to be aittle The Bride of Willow Creek lighter than the other MH books I ve read and I managed to pinpoint what it was that Iove so much about her book other than they re awesomeAll of the books were in the erotic romance category but they weren t focused solely on that part I m kind of used to that type of books to be almost completely about the romance but in Megan Hart s books I get than that Yes we meet the heroines at a point in their GREAT INVESTMENT, THE life when they meet their significant other or just a significant one but we alsoearn about every important aspect of their ives the people that matter to them and the people from their pasts that made an impact on their ives Really they re books about women s The Lively Art of Writing lives with romance included And this is why Iove reading themHere we got to meet Grace Frawley a funeral director who prefers to pay men to sleep with her than to have a relationship Oh yes Grace ed an interesting ife Secret ife I know I ve said that this was a bit ighter than what I m used to from MH but those parts that were about Grace s job were rather depressing no matter how much she told herself it was just work Dealing with people who have The Glass Ocean lost theiroved ones can t be that easy neither can handling the dead There were different cases even odd ones and one that made me cry just when I thought this would turn out to be a book by Megan Hart that didn t make me shed a tear While I m on the topic of her business it was actually a business she took over from her father It was a fine example how some people meddle where they re not supposed to Sometimes I thought Grace had work cut out for her convincing her father the funeral home was doing okay than she had at her actual work ParentsThe reason I found Stranger ighter almost fun to read were the parts regarding Grace s secret The reason she started paying men to be with her made me feel bad for her but
