Landon Grace is a stand-up guy, but running about 7-bananas-strong, from tequila shots at Oscar and Hale's wedding reception, what happened between him and Sher Simmons was supposed to be a one time thing. A quickie, between the Best Man and Maid of Honor, at their best friends' wedding.
But some one-night-stands refuse to be finished in one night.
Especially when they return with a hard shot of morning sickness.
Now, Landon is faced with a problem he never thought he'd have to consider...
Just how much sway does a guy really have, regarding a woman's choice to pursue or terminate the pregnancy of his child?
I loved Oscar and Hale’s story in Hale Maree, so I was excited when Misty announced there would be a companion novel. Then add the fact that it’s about Landon and Sher makes me a happy camper. I’ve loved everything I’ve read by Misty so far, and Full of Grace is no exception.
You really don’t need to read Hale Maree before reading this, but it’s nice to do so. Full of Grace picks up where Hale Maree left off, except now we’re getting Landon’s POV. Landon and Sher have a one night stand at a wedding, but it doesn’t end there. That one night is life changing. Sher becomes pregnant but doesn’t think she’s ready to have a baby and end up just like her mom. Landon, on the other hand, wants to give it a chance. To give them a chance.
I love Landon and being in his head; he’s calm, funny, and truly a good man. I was cracking up even when he got in his obsessed “stalker” modes or his damn pant stealing scheme. Poor guy, though, I thought Sher was going to give him an ulcer at times. I adored Oscar in Hale Maree, but Landon is now my #1 guy out of the two. Sorry, Oscar, your boy showed you up.
Even though we only got a small glimpse of Sher in Hale Maree, I liked her. Then at the beginning of Full of Grace she was driving me crazy with the giggling and I wondered if I was going to be able to put up with it. But it actually turned out to be really funny, especially getting Landon’s different reactions to it. Sher is a little spitfire, though, and I loved it. I honestly wasn’t expecting her to be so feisty, which was a pleasant surprise. I really like how she and Landon balanced each other out perfectly.
The secondary characters were great, too. I was happy that we saw Oscar and Hale and got a tiny glimpse into how life is going for them. And Sher’s mom with a bb gun …. priceless. Another character I really liked was Gina, Landon’s lesbian sister. I’m crossing my fingers that Misty with give us a book featuring Gina’s story. It could be a companion novel to this companion novel. 🙂 Seriously, though, Misty keeps giving us such great characters, that I wish she would continue on with a series that features a new couple even book.
Full of Grace covered a serious topic and was sad at times, but overall, it was a really fun read. Between all the banter, sexy time, and sweet moments, it was just all around entertaining. You must read both of these books. Must!
