This is another book in the SASS-Singles Arrangement Service Specialists. Each stands alone so you don’t have to read them in order or all of them. The previous book in this series, I really liked. This one, not so much. I did not find Grace or Ty likeable or relatable. Grace felt as if she were forcing herself to act in a certain way and when she was dropping the act, we were only told that she talked with Ty or did something. The interaction was missing most of the time so the real Grace never really shone. Ty swore he didn’t jump into his date’s beds, but it didn’t take much for him to jump into Grace’s! Also, I’ve never known anyone to be able to tell someone is Italian by their coloring as most Italians pretty much look like everyone else. Truly most of the characters were disagreeable and I could not find a connection between Grace and Ty. Though there is a happy ending, I felt the story lacked the depth and emotions that it could have had.
The Story: Grace divorced her husband after he was found to be embezzling from the company he worked at. However, after 3 years of marriage Grace was used to the good life.
