Every part of me yearns for Ryland and there hasn’t been a day that’s gone by that I don’t question if I made the right decision. Adjusting is something I should be used to by now but how can I do that when life has other plans?</ span>
When darkness consumes you, only true light can free you
Remembering how I existed before Araya came into my life and turned everything upside down has been the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. I can’t stand to be round anyone and the feeling is mutual. But I’m ready to take back what’s mine. I’m ready to be whole again. But every decision has a choice and every choice has a consequence.
To find the grace in darkness, you must Dare to be BRAVE Dare to be STRONG Dare to be ALIVE
Melissa picks up just about where she left off in TEOD and I am so glad that she did!! I was dying to know what was going to happen. If you haven't had the chance to read TEOD, please go read it now. I truly loved that book. You will be so glad that you did. Plus, if you haven't read it, I'm about to ruin it for you and we can't have anyone mad at me for that!!!! Anyway, back to TGID.
Araya has been at the prestigious school for the blind for a few months when Ryland finally finds her and then works up the nerve to go see her. And what does he find when he gets there? A happy Araya. And because she is happy, he makes the decision to wait a while longer. He still doesn't really know why she left to begin with, and seeing her happy and dancing again makes him question her feelings for him.
So Ryland waits, and he bides his time working for his father. He is working with Careless, however he has not forgiven her for her role in humiliating the love of his life and using her to get back at her father. The term "father" is used loosely here. JD is still a scheming and manipulative jackass. Although, I have to admit I was a bit confused as to WHY he is the way he is. And really, that question never gets answered.
Eventually they find their way back together, but the reunion isn't an easy one. They have to deal with their feelings for each other and also their insecurities. She thinks she is holding him back, he just wants to take care of her, she has to prove she can do it herself.....you get the idea. Not to mention, JD is involved in some major plotting against them, and it doesn't look good there for a while. You start to wonder if maybe they are just doomed to fail.
Of course, there is a HEA...... And I am so glad for that!!!! I think Melissa did a GREAT job with this book and telling the story of Ryland and Araya. I feel like it was a little rushed in parts, and I would have liked to have a little more information during the major turning point in the story (I can't tell you what though, because it's a BIG moment!). But aside from that, I LOVED seeing their relationship continue to grow.
I am giving The Grace in Darkness by Melissa Andrea four glasses of White Zin.....which I will have to wait until May to consume....... All these glasses of wine I have saved up, I'm gonna be drunk til September!!!!!
His fingers wrapped around the back of my neck, pulling me hard against his
body. I knew what he was attempting to do, but his plan was backfiring.
My body sighed at the contact, and every curve molded against him;
desperate to feel all of him.
“If I feel you beneath me, I won’t
be able to stop Araya. I want you too damn much! I want you, all of you.
I want to be buried so deep inside of you, you won’t know where I end
and you begin.” His breath showered my lips with warmth.
“I won’t want you to stop Ryland. I need you, all of you, now and forever.”
“And the rest?”</ p>
eyes move over my face, flushing my skin with the intensity of his
gaze. The rhythm of my heart increased, because I know what he wants me
“Say it.” He growls against my lips.

I find it hard to sum up my life in a paragraph, but I’ll try.
I am the author of Flutter, The Discover Series! Reading has always been a passion for me, and writing as instinctive as breathing.
Every inhale is an idea; every exhale a creation. The only thing I do better than writing you ask? Making beautiful girls. My daughter’s will always be my greatest accomplishment.
I was born in Denver, Colorado–but I will always think of sunny Arizona as my home. I don’t have a big family, but I’m close with my sister, brother
& my mom. My mom is my hero, my inspiration, and I couldn’t have asked for a more amazing person to be raised by.</ span>
4 things you should know about me: I’m very girly, but I can get down and dirty with the best of them. I adore the color pink and things that sparkle
(including vampires), I am a firm believer that chocolate cures ALL and I like even numbers (hence 4 things about me, not 5) Okay, maybe I cheated a little with my list, shhhh.
