Now or Never Review Tour Stop

Twenty-one year old Grayson Alexander finally breaks away from an abusive relationship and finds herself free for the first time in three years.

Determined to enjoy her new-found freedom, Grayson is intent on sticking with 'no strings attached' relationships—one-night stands, and steamy sex.

But she didn't plan on Derrick.

Her attraction to the sexy man in uniform quickly turns into an unhealthy relationship. They both try to resist the pull, but neither can stay away.

When tragedy strikes, Grayson realizes it's now or never—walk away or make it work.
Right off the bat, I was sucked into this book. I really don’t understand why people disliked it so much. I loved it! The story was so real and raw. Not one bit of the story was sugar coated like so many others I have read. It was like reading a true-life story. I could feel the emotions and passion of the characters; much of the book was very relatable to me. Yes, the main character, Grayson, made many, many mistakes, but who doesn’t while on the journey of self-discovery.
I admire Grayson’s strength. It takes guts to go through a toxic relationship and come out of it as strong and determined as she did. Three years can do a lot of mental and emotional damage, but Grayson made me proud with how she stayed strong and stood her ground.
The men in Grayson’s life, Josh-the ex and Derrick-the new love interest, were very good at infuriating me. I really wanted to reach in and slap them. I strongly disliked Josh, in a wish horrible things upon him way.  Derrick did some nice damage to him, but I think he deserved more. Then Derrick had to go and hide his true feelings and lie to Grayson. Ugh! I understand why he did those things in the first place, but so much happiness was wasted because of it. In the end, everything worked out the way I had hoped it would. There were many lessons learned and everyone grew into better, happier people. I believe this book shows the true weaknesses and strengths of people. It is a good read and I hope everyone else enjoys it as much as I did!!!
