Grayson by Lisa Eugene - Review

Grayson by Lisa Eugene

Book Blurb

An insane love that will keep you from falling---or push you right off the edge.

All she needed was a job…
The last thing twenty-four year old grad student Angie Roberts needs is to worry about her new boss’s father. After all, she’s never even seen him. He remains sequestered upstairs in a house that looks like it should be the main feature in an episode of Hoarders. She had no idea the house was such a dump when she took the job. But she’s concerned about the safety and health of the old man living under such horrid conditions.

What she got was a mystery…
Despite warnings not to venture upstairs, she wanders up to the second floor. What she sees is shocking. The man she finds is a gorgeous, sexy, middle-aged man-- and he's stepping out of the shower. But something is definitely not right. Why would this wealthy, handsome man live in a house in such disrepair while his nine-teen year old son resides in a lavish penthouse? Why does he hide away from society? Why does he come to her rescue and then run away?

What she discovered was heartbreaking…
Angie learns that forty-four year old Grayson Whitmore suffers from schizophrenia. Paranoid, he retreats into his own world.

What she ended up with was a treasure…
Angie is determined to get through to Grayson. They form a friendship that blazes into an inconceivable love fired with raging passion. Angie must now come to Grayson’s rescue because the wicked that has been perpetrated on him is unconscionable. First, though, she must gain the trust of a man whose mind does not allow for such a thing.

My Review

This is a good read with good characthers and deals with a difficult subject mental illness.

I loved how Grayson the main man wasn't defined by his illness and showed the man behind the illness. He had a sense of fun about him, and enjoyed teasing Ange. 

As I say Grayson is the main man, but first off you meet Charles, his son, you can make your own mind up on him!

Ange is not a young dumb female, she's 24 about to graduate, trying to support her family and pay her way through college. She comes across sleezy Charles, (oops minor spoiler) when applying for a job as a cleaner. She's given strict instructions not to go upstairs, what happens when your told not to do something! Of course your more inquisitive. Angie and Grayson's first encounter is pretty hot, and opens communications. 

Their developing relationship is very sweet, sexy and difficult, his in no way miraculously cured by love, but with the right woman on his side there's always hope.

An enjoyable read which flowed well. I really liked Grayson with his silver highlight and nice body. The main plot was slightly predictable, but there are other twists here and there. 

Four stars
