J. A. Huss likes to write new adult books that make you think and keep you guessing. Her favorite genre to read is space opera, but since practically no one reads those books, she writes new adult science fiction, paranormal romance, contemporary romance, urban fantasy, and books about Junco (who refuses to be saddled with a label).

She has an undergraduate degree in horses, (yes, really–Thank you, Colorado State University) and a master’s degree in forensic toxicology from the University of Florida. She used to have a job driving around Colorado doing pretty much nothing but shooting the breeze with farmers, but now she just writes, runs the New Adult Addiction and Clean Teen Reads Book Blogs, and runs an online science classroom for homeschoolers.

So let me make you all jealous for a moment: I got an eARC of this book to read in exchange for my honest review. No worries, though; I also pre-ordered so when you guys are all staring at your kindles at 11:59pm tomorrow night? SO WILL I BE.

This serial is hot. I love that there is something new every two weeks and that we're finally getting glimpses of Grace's past and what it's like to be Vaughn Asher. After cancelling on their Twitter date, Vaughn has been quiet for two weeks. Two agonizing weeks while Grace is helping to plan the wedding of Kristi-the-future-Mrs.Blazen.

There's heart break, there's angst, there's some weird stranger who is very protective of Grace, there's super hot chemistry, there's an argument, there's reconciliation, only to have it all blow up...

What is going on?! What's the truth behind Grace's past? How will Vaughn save her? How will Grace save him? Will they get their happily ever after? Argggghhhh...there are still THREE more books after you pick up this week's. I'm pre-ordering STATUS  today. 

I head towards the bar and Grace isnt even paying attention. Shes chatting up the bartender, who sees me coming and excuses himself as I take a seat two stools away from her.
"Hey," I say in a low voice. "Im sorry for picking you up back there. It was presumptuous to think youd talk to me tonight, let alone come up to my room."
"Another margarita," Grace calls out to the bartender.
I catch his eye and hold up a finger. "Scotch, please. Top shelf."
"Im not interested in your excuse, Vaughn. Truly." She looks me in the eyes for the first time tonight. "Truly, I am not interested. Im not playing a game with you. Im not playing hard to get. Im not pretending to be pissed. Im not even pissed. Im just not interested. Youre not the man I thought you were. And I get that I was invested in the fantasy version of you. OK?" she says, shaking her head a little. "I get that. It was my fault for turning you into some kind of Prince Charming. So its not fair that I had such high expectations of you. Im sorry that I blamed you for something I caused."
The bartender delivers our drinks and takes Graces empty glass away. I take a sip of my Scotch, then gulp it all, and slide my glass on the bar. "Another, please." The bartender nods and moves off to get that. I put my head in my hands. "Grace," I say, rubbing my temples. "Just for the fun of it, tell me what that Prince Charming version of me was like. How do I not measure up?" I look up at her, but shes staring down into her pink drink, playing with the paper umbrella. "Was I nicer? Was I more generous? What is the real Vaughn Asher missing?"
She meets my gaze for a moment, but it’s a fleeting one. They drop back down just a quickly and shrugs her shoulders. “I don’t know. The fantasy was… charming. Not just in a princely way, either. But really, really charming. Saying witty things, and being at ease with himself and others. He jokes with me and makes me laugh. You" She doesnt look at me, just continues to stare into her drink. "You make me sad. You make me feel inadequate. You make me feel stupid and small and pathetic."
Fuck. "How though? How did I do that? Because that was not my intention. OK?" I reach out and cover her small hand with mine. "I never wanted to make you feel like that. I wanted to excite you."
She looks up at my eyes and I almost wish she hadnt. Her expression is overflowing with disappointment and she looks tired. She does look sad. She looks like she cried very hard earlier and the makeup cant quite hide that. "You wanted to excite yourself, Vaughn. You wanted to please yourself. Not me. Everything you did, from picking out those clothes to putting money in my bank account, all of it was for your benefit. You lie to yourself, I think. Youre one long string of self-serving lies. I dont know how you do it, or how you get so many girls to play along. But all your best intentions were nothing but really good deceptions. And even though I know in my heart" she clenches her fist and holds it over her chest"that the fairy tale is fake, that it doesnt exist and Im setting myself up for disappointment, I dont care. Because I deserve that happy ending, Vaughn. I do. You might not think so. You might think Im just some silly girl who has no right to expect so much from a man. But I dont care. Maybe that man doesnt exist and maybe Ill spend the rest of my life alone, waiting for my prince. I dont care. I refuse to play this game with you."
And then she reaches into her little clutch purse to grab her credit card and wave it at the bartender. "Im done, Vaughn. And for what its worth, I do believe you about that girl on the TV. Thank you for the charity money. I will make sure it goes to worthy organizations and send you the receipt so you can claim it on your taxes."
