    what a lovely book it was! while you might find many books with the same plotline- boy meets girl, they have sex, girl gets pregnant and drama embrakes. Misty Provencher managed to do it differently, thus making it her own. the question posed is different: what happens when the GUY wants to keep the baby and the GIRL does not? does he have a say? let me tell you, Landon does, and he tries his best to make sure that his opinion is heard and considered. I enjoyed Landon's and Sher's story, their relationship (the way it developed), their dilemas, how they interacted with each other and others. One of Landon's biggest adventages was that he wasn't rich, it was obvious his economical status was way better then Sher, but it was also obvious that raising a child would involve many expanses and it would be quite a challenge for him, financially speaking. But, what made this book entirely Fantastic was how Misty Provencher managed to pull a boy POV and make it reliable, Because, most times I have a hard time reading a boy POV written by girl and vise versa. Not here. what I loved most were Landon's letters to the baby. Misty Provencher created a great character in Landon- with his guy insensetivity, his anxiety, and how he thought Sher was gorgeouse yet he found her giggling annoying (and I did to, along with him), and when he started to like them and understand each and every little nuansce I did too, and I loved Sher because of how he saw her, and I loved him for what he was. so yes, I suspect I became a Misty fan. and all I have left to say is- go read it now!!!

    Four and a half stars: A sexy read with terrific characters that will leave you smiling!Landon is trying to adhere to his seven banana drinking rule at is best pal Oscar’s wedding. If he has anything beyond seven drinks, things get risky. Like many good intentions when drinking is involved, they often fly out the window. In a moment of drunken abandon, Landon makes a mistake. He ends up having a steamy sexual encounter with the bride’s best friend Sher. After the fact, he discovers that Sher was a virgin. He doesn’t want to be “that guy” so he endeavors to make it right. After a month of unanswered phone calls, Landon figures he is off the hook with Sher, even though he really did try. Oscar and Hale return from their honeymoon and Landon once again comes face to face with Sher. She has a bit of shocking news: she is pregnant with his baby. Even though a baby is not what he had planned, Landon desperately wants to see this pregnancy through,but the young Sher has other ideas. Can Landon somehow convince Sher to have his baby?What I Liked:*I am never disappointed with the creativity of Ms. Provencher’s story lines. This time she brings a plot that is very realistic as it involves a one night stand that ends up in a pregnancy. What makes this different is that you have the man fighting to keep the baby and willing to do whatever it takes to make sure the baby is born. If that means taking Sher into his home and life and even at times holding her pants hostage then so be it. What follows is a bit of fun, smexy and difficulty as these two new acquaintances become roommates and struggle to get to know each other. Will they make it through the nine months?*Landon.... once again Ms. Provencher has brought me another absolutely swoon worthy male lead. Landon is probably my favorite to date. He is not only handsome and kind, but he is big hearted, compassionate and so sexy. Landon was reared by a single mother and he is the youngest behind four older sisters. Needless to say, he has learned a thing or two about women, virginity and even pregnancy along the way. His background makes him very sympathetic to Sher’s predicament and he does everything he can to make it right for her. How can you not love a guy like that? What I liked most, though, is that the book is told from his view point. Misty must know how to channel a twenty something guy because at no point did I not believe that I was reading a male point of view. Landon behaves like a typical guy and believe me, he has plenty of deliciously dirty thoughts. If you are looking for a new book boyfriend, I urge you to give Landon a go. *Sher is an interesting character as well. At first, I found her to be a bit obnoxious, as does Landon, with her incessant giggling. However, as the book wears on, you get a peek at her deeper layers and you see that she is a terrified eighteen year old who comes from a less than desirable background. Sher is one of five children all being raised by a single mother and all of them have different dads. Sher being the oldest takes on many of the responsibilities of an adult. Sure she is a bit immature and she makes some stupid mistakes, but it is easy to understand why she acts the way she does once you learn her background. Even though Sher is a struggle sometimes, by the end of the book I had a whole new appreciation for her.*The secondary characters are just as interesting as the main characters. Oscar and Hale are back and they have numerous appearances in this book. It is nice to see how everything worked out for them. Aside from them, there is also Sher’s mother Lisa. Lisa has a hard life trying to raise all those kids on her own. They live in a run down apartment in a bad neighborhood. Even though she has made her bed and has a difficult life, she still tries to do what she can for her kids, and she is fiercely protective of her kids. I giggled at the scene where one of the neighborhood hoodlums is bothering Sher so she grabs her pellet gun and lets loose. She just so happens to be an excellent shot. Gina, Landon’s lesbian sister, was another character who almost stole the show. She is so supportive of Landon and always there to offer him some great advice, not to mention hit on chicks. I would love to see a book from her point of view just because she is so darn fun. (Hint hint, Misty).*Let’s talk about sex......okay I have made this statement in other reviews. I am not always the biggest fan of love scenes, especially if they are over the top and go on and on and on. If it gets to be too much I start blushing.... Let me tell you, there are plenty of smexy time moments in this one, but not once did I feel uncomfortable while reading them. Ms. Provencher does an excellent job in writing her scenes so they are just right.... you won’t feel like some dirty peeping Tom after reading them. They are sinful and wonderful! Heads up, the sex scenes are for mature readers only. *Finally, this book has plenty of bumps in the road, but in the end you get a nice sweet satisfying ending that will leave you smiling. This is one of those New Adult novels that refrains from an overly dramatic storyline. Yes, there is some drama but not the rip your heart out, punch you in the gut kind. Everything wraps up neatly and there are no love triangles!And The Not So Much:*Even though I was completely satisfied with the way things ended, I would like to know how Sher worked everything out. Did she enroll in college? Is she going to plan on a career? Did she and her mother work out their differences?*I was excited to see Oscar and Hale return, but I wished they had just a little bigger part. I would have loved to hear Hale’s side of a few of those phone calls to Sher to see how she was settling in. *I was curious as to why there were not more details on Landon as far as his job and all of that went. He obviously has a good job, but it isn’t clear what he does for a living. This is not a big deal, just me wanting to know all there is to know about the sexy Landon.Full of Grace is another excellent indie book that you need to try, especially if you are a New Adult addict and you are tired of all the angst and drama. This book has wonderful characters and a solid story line. I thoroughly enjoyed the story and it left me smiling. If you have yet to try a book by Misty Provencher, what are you waiting for?Favorite Quotations:“ I just came off a quickie relationship with Amy-the-Psychopath, and now I’ve landed the Giggler, who might actually end up going Jack the Ripper on me.”“I’m just saying, Sher.....it’s harder for me not to be into you. The more you’re around, the more I want you to be. You’re a potato chip. The more I have, the more I want.”“She reaches across me, brushing over my crotch, and the alarm in my jean-submarine instantly flashes: Semen! All hands on deck! All the other thoughts drain from my brain.”“I’m not getting needles stuck through my stomach or up my hobbit hole.”“And I’ve been de-pigging your pig hole all day. I haven’t even gotten to your closet yet. That’s going to take a week to sort out.”I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    BOOK REVIEW by Michelle 20th MAY 2013:RATING: 5 BEAUTIFUL LANDON STARSAfter falling for Oscar Maree in Hale Maree, I wondered how Misty was going to write Landon. Oscar is a beautiful , phwoaaaarrr!! smexi lad whose persistence won Hale over, not to mention his...........Misty wrote a most gorgeous voice in Landon. The lad is this mix of humour, thinks outside the box, not afraid to accept responsibility.... and can he make your toes curl.I uber uber uber loved this book!I laughed so much. Misty has this magnificent witty talent. I connected with Landon in Hale Maree, I knew I wanted to read his book and I knew I wanted him to hook up with Sher.Sher is this loveable, total giggle pot. She has a most unique voice for a character. I loved hearing Landon’s inner monologue about Sher and her giggling.I loved her giggling.I could hear her giggles.... especially the chainsaw ones.LOL!“We’re going hobbit hunting,” Sher giggles, but it doesn’t derail Saul in the least.How’ve you been?” I inquire lightly annnd...she giggles. Damn. It’s like a bucket of ice in my shorts.I just came off of a quickie relationship with Amy-the-Psychopath, and now I’ve landed the Giggler, who might actually end up going Jack the Ripper on me.A serious topic is the basis for Misty’s story about Landon and Sher and she handles it brilliantly.I have not laughed so much one minute and then had my toes curl the next in a book.I tug her earlobe into my mouth, or maybe it’s her lip... I don’t have a clue. It’s just soft and warm and makes me think of nipples.“That’s fine,” I tell her. “But if you happen to be the one that gets thirsty first, I just want you to know, I’m not stingy with my milk at all.”She reaches across me, brushing over my crotch, and the alarm in my jean-submarine instantly flashes: Semen! All hands on deck!OMG!I have some favourite scenes.*waggles eyebrows *Misty put the sizzle in Landon and Sher.Misty really does have writing talent. She drew me in from the first page. I connected with Landon, and his inner monologue is brilliant fun and how he sees Sher and how he wants to give her what she thinks she will miss. He really is a stand up guy. He is honest with himself and with Sher with regards to the situation and that is all you can do.I really love a guy like Landon. There is just something special about the way they see life and what it throws at them and how they handle it. He has such a talent for being creative in his endeavors to try to stop Sher making a big mistake in his eyes.I loved how much he cares.Give Sher a reason, give her a life. The things she wants to do though - horse riding, pole dancing, tattoos, sex with strangers - I’m not sure how okay I am with letting her have four whole episodes of ‘Sherr Gone Wild’. I’m sure as hell not going out to recruit a dude to do her on the beach.A very clever story that even had me getting a bit teary.Landon knows how to bring romance to the picnic ... his style of picnic. To have a guy in your life like Landon who truly puts the thinking cap on to make a girl feel special is something to see.“You can stop trying to be my hero,” she says. “I don’t need one.” “But I do,” I tell her, “and this was the address they gave me.”Horses, pole dancing, tattoos, stranger sex on the beach. I try to keep my lip from hanging open. “Okay,” I rub my hands together slowly. “I really didn’t see three of those things coming.” The sub characters are very entertaining. I loved Sher's interesting family. Her mother Lisa, is quite a character that you can't help but like and her oompa loompa sized brothers and sisters are like rugrats on Red Bull. Sher showed her ability to be a great mother and role model when the rugrats joined in the story.I loved having Oscar pop up with Hale. They are such great characters and I just loved hearing Oscar’s voice again.I can see why Oscar and Landon are such good friends. They both won’t let the girl in their life run away without a fight. They love hard.I totally dig that you don't have to read Hale Maree first to read Landon and Sher's story, but I highly recommend that you read Hale Maree first , so you can meet Oscar and get your glimpse of Landon. He will make you want to read more.This was a story that the doctor ordered. I needed a book to have something different in a contemporary. This is a funny, witty, heart warming read with some theft and major giggle fits. Landon will show you why he can fall for a chainsaw giggler and you will be rooting for him to win Sher over.Misty delivers in true Misty style.Michelle

    Where to start? I have told pretty much everyone that this book was fan-freakin-tastic and absolutely hilarious. I couldn't even tell you the last time I laughed so much, I was giggling and gasping all the way through.Let me start by telling you about Landon, cause its in his pov - he's 24, has 5 older sisters, a job he likes, a bestie from childhood, a filthy mopless apartment, and he's a typical male he thinks with his penis. He's the perfect combination of crude and sweet. Honest and rational. That's until the night of his besties wedding. He's more than a few bananas drunk (PMSL!) and he just can't go past Shers girl sweat and chainsaw like giggle (and she giggles. ALOT!). Unbeknownst to him he de-flowers her, and BAM everything changes.I hang up and go about my business for the next ten seconds. Then I pick up the phone and check the blank screen again, right before I slam the damn thing back down on my desk. I'd like to say I'm secure I'm the knowledge that at least I've done my part with the whole follow-up-with-the-virgin thing, but my confidence has been completely kicked over, and it's time to face the hard facts. I know this: I'm safe. I'm definitely not a douchebag. I've just turned into a fucking stalker.Landon is a champion. He says things straight up and doesn't filter it. He's loyal and likes to think he's a sensitive new age guy. Now Sher, she is a totally different kettle of fish. She's a psycho!! Lol. She breaks things, inflicts bodily harm upon him, talks back and has absolutely no idea how this could have happened to her - all while giggling. Ok ok, not all the time but still. She has an important decision to make, and it affects more than just her.One moment it's;"I'm just saying, Sher...it's harder for me not to be into you. The more you're around, the more I want you to be. You're a potato chip. The more I have, the more I want," ~ bahahahahahaha, just what a young, hormonal pregnant girl wants to be compared to.then the next;Whoa. The hormonal truck is starting to take u-turns already.~ PMSL - Yep!There was lots of talk about Grandma (some of my favorite moments :P), a horse and carriage ride, sex on the beach, tattoos, baby sitting, pellet bullet avoiding, and a pole dance you do not want to miss. This book had it all. The letters made me teary, the sex was a little steamy, their relationship was anything but smooth sailing, the romance was sweet, humor was in abundance and the characters were totally and completely lovable. There was a beautiful message as icing on the cake.You must check out this book. It's one that will sit on my favorite & laugh-our-loud shelves proudly. I LOVE-LOVE-LOVED it!

    Full of Grace is a newly released companion to Hale Maree, Misty Provencher’s touching and original New Adult story that features an arranged marriage. It is, in my opinion, a slightly superior, more mature work, with better character development, better pacing and a far more believable plot. I’m rarely comfortable with female authors writing from a male perspective (or vice versa, really), but Misty Provencher gave such a lovely, genuine voice to Landon, and she was consistent throughout the novel.Plotwise, Full of Grace is a bit more traditional than its predecessor: girl meets boy, girl gets pregnant, drama ensues. Neither Sher nor Landon wanted to find themselves in that situation, but Landon, being the outstanding guy that he is, is determined to make the most of it. He takes things as they come and he puts his whole heart into it, with no reservations whatsoever. It is admirable and perhaps a bit crazy too. Full of Grace shows how a single mistake, a single moment of weakness, can cost you dearly and change your life completely. I disliked Sher intensely at first – she is a giggler, and she comes across as self-centered until things start klicking into place. Not all of her choices were wise, but Provencher gave me enough insight, even through Landon’s eyes, to sympathize with her and understand her completely. Landon Grace is someone you should meet. He is a genuinely nice guy, honest and loyal. I adored him in Hale Maree, but being privy to his thoughts made me love and respect him even more. I couldn’t help but admire how hard he worked to make things right with Sher and how he just took everything she threw at him and tried to make the best of it. Once again, Provencher did an excellent job and showed that she’s not in the business of creating plastic, meaningless characters. Whatever she writes next, I’ll definitely read.

    The one and only complaint I have with this book is it was too short for me! Hale Maree (book 1 to this one) is one of my favs, like top 5. I fell in love with Landon in the first book and I was so excited for Full of Grace. I wasn't disappointed! I read this book in one sitting completely ignoring my screaming child and starving husband. I love the fact the book was told completely from Landons pov which is something I haven't seen in the new adult genre. It was refreshing not knowing what Sher was thinking or doing when she wasn't around Landon. Provencher tells the male pov well! Landon was just crude enough and sensitive enough to be the perfect male. I have to say he gives Oscar a run for his money! When faced with the situation he is a lesser male would run screaming in the other direction. He really steps up to the plate and never really doubts his decision. Sher is funnier then I don't know what. I love how Landon describes her giggling as a chainsaw. It was really great to watch these two fall in love. I would have liked a epilogue! Hint hint! All in all Full of Grace is an amazing read, amazingly written and incredibly beautiful. Not to mention hawt! Provencher really brought the sexy in this story! I was fanning myself and blushing along with Sher. If you haven't read Hale Maree please do so first because you will get confused. 5 huge sparkling stars!

    I didn't have high hopes for Landon after Hale Maree. After all, he had been dating a psychopath. Didn't say much for him. Plus, his looks could never compare to Oscar (I am such a sucker for dark hair & blue eyes after all). But Misty managed to get me hooked on a blonde guy with the way she wrote Landon.**spoiler alert**I loved this story and how incredibly sweet he was, especially in such a difficult situation. Standing his ground with Sher's crazy mom, writing love letters to his unborn baby, trying to help Sher get the crazy stuff checked off her list so she could settle down to be a mom, he's simply amazing. I'm sure he would have stayed with Sher & helped raise her baby if it had turned out to be Trent's after all. And that's a pretty amazing guy. Landon totally won me over in this book. (Although he's still comes behind Oscar on my list - since both guys are amazing, sweet guys, but Oscar has the looks I go head over heels for.)

    This was an ok read except for the CONSTANT GIGGLING Sher does which was annoying coz it made her sound so vapid and dumb.This went downhill for me when Sher didn't come clean about her pregnancy to Landon. She tried to foist off her unborn baby to him which didn't really sit well with me coz she was unsure of who is the father. And to top it off her duplicity, she slept with him before coming clean. For me this is like leading him on or trying to soften him up for the big reveal. The author tried to justified her sleeping around coz she was lonely and won't get out of poverty etc...didn't made sense to meI gave this one star coz of Landon. He wanted to keep the baby even if it wasn't his. The author should have just left Landon alone and not paired him off in a story with a slut. I know it's a harsh word but I didn't liked Sher's charter at all.

    This book is beyond amazing. I am in love with this unique story and characters. Landon...oh my gosh sweet Landon. I thought he was just a partying airhead of sorts in Hale Maree, but he so proved me wrong in this book. He should be an example of how all men should act. He is a definite swoon worthy book boyfriend. Then we have Sher.This girl is so strong an amazing...I even fell in love with her giggles. I laughed ALL the way through Full of Grace.Although it had a serious subject matter, it was so damn funny! I dont think I have ever laughed so much while reading a book!This is the kind of book that when you start, you won't want to put it down.I read it in little over a day and when I did have to pull myself away , it would be calling me back. Well done Misty Provencher,well done!

    Into the Night Reviews Web: http://intothenightbookreviews.blogsp... Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/IntoTheNightR... for great book reviews, new release updates, giveaways and more!!Full of Grace is the companion book to Hale Maree by Misty Provencher. It tells the story of Landon Grace and Sher Traifere. I hadn't read Hale Maree, where these two first meet, but in all honesty it didn't detract from my enjoyment or understanding of the story.Full of Grace is told from Landon's perspective and deals with the issue of an unplanned pregnancy. Landon and Sher have what both initially consider as a one night stand, but then Landon's perspective is changed when he learns more about Sher's 'history' and Sher discovers she is pregnant.I loved the premise of this story - an unplanned pregnancy and the rights of both parents to be involved in the decision to terminate. I could feel the turmoil both characters were dealing with: Landon, a brother to five sisters and raised by a single mum, determined to be there for his child and Sher and willing to do whatever it takes to convince her to keep the baby. On the other hand, Sher, also raised by a single mum with multiple siblings from different fathers, is desperate not to be her mother all over again, devastated that she hasn't yet had the opportunity to live her life and terrified of the long term consequences of being a teenage mum.As I said, I hadn't read Hale Maree, so I didn't have any background to the relationship between Landon and Sher, but there was clearly chemistry between the two of them. Yes, their initial encounter was somewhat alcohol fuelled, but the way Landon talks/thinks about Sher conveys so much more than a meaningless one night stand.The two must come to grips with the pregnancy and it's consequences for their future. They must also determine what they have together, when really they know next to nothing about each other:"I realize that I'm every bit as stupid as she's thinking I am, even if not for the same reasons. I have no idea what Sher's last name is. I don't know a damn thing about her, except that she's got skin like the underbelly of a baby rabbit and she's carrying my baby - for the moment. We came together for maybe ten minutes total and it began this whole weird elbow pipe of our lives as strangers. What a mess."Landon was just gorgeous, his determination to have Sher hear his side of things had me chuckling regularly and his slowly dawning realisation that there was more to his feelings than just the thought of the baby in Sher's belly was a delight to read. They have moments where you think "this is it, they'll be OK now": "For one second, the world freezes. There is only Sher staring into my eyes. Me, staring back. Our connection is beyond physical, it's even more than the link of a baby growing in her belly. It's my soul and hers, grazing fingertips over one another."And then something would happen that would set them back almost to where they started. Despite that, Landon was persistent, consistent and so loveable I really don't know how Sher could resist him:"She's the wild card and how she plays her hand will still determine my entire life, whether I like it or not. I should hate her, but instead, I've tracked her down and now I just want to sit here, pretending none of it happened, and watch her sleep."Landon and Sher's story is beautifully written. There are complexities to the story that have them questioning what the pregnancy means for both their individual and collective futures. Underlying the fear and uncertainty there is a slowly developing connection with each other that promises them great things:"This one moment, in my bed beside her, is whole. Warm and safe and invicible, it feels like a beginning And if I were able to lay beside her like this every day of my life, I think the end would feel as complete."I loved this book. I sat up late to finish reading it because I just had to know the outcome. It is not long and while some reviews have commented it wasn't long enough, I was very satisfied with where it finished. I will also be adding Misty Provenchers other books to my TBR list.

    Full of Grace picks right up where book one Hale Maree ended. In Hale Maree we met Oscar's best friend Landon. He's been partnered with Hale's best friend Sher in the wedding party. Sher is beautiful with long blonde hair, smells incredible and has an infectious giggle. Prepare to hear about that giggle a LOT. At times I would picture sponge bob laughing. Even Landon can't decide if he loves or hates the giggles. But Sher is only eighteen and I found that the constant state of giggles reminds you of just how young and immature she is. The one-night-stand between her and Landon leads to some very mature consequences. They both have to struggle with how to handle the situation and they're not always on the same page.I fell in love with Landon pretty quick though. He has 5 older sisters and has heard from all of them about asshole men and he was not going to be one of them. So when he discovers that he took Sher's virginity he feels certain obligations or protocol he must live up to. He's shocked when she won't return his calls. His guilt has him calling for the next month. Sher never answers and never returns his call. After 6 weeks, Landon gets a call from Oscar that is now home from his honeymoon with Hale. When they all get together for dinner that night, Sher drops the bomb. Not only is she pregnant but she's not sure she's going to keep it.So here's where I had a really hard time liking Sher's character. Not because she considers abortion but because as Landon tries to convince her to keep the baby, Sher hasn't been completely honest with him. I do love a lot of the sassy comments that Sher makes though. Landon is twenty four and not ready for a family either but he's determined to take care of Sher and the baby if she'll keep it. I fall even more in love with Landon as he starts writing letters to the baby. Sher is scared and feels like this pregnancy is practically a death sentence because she hasn't had a chance to do all the things she dreamed of doing. She really just doesn't want to end up like her mother who is single with 5 kids. Landon tries to help her do some things on her bucket list. Sher struggles with her guilt about what she's keeping from Landon but she's falling in love with him too. She's afraid the truth will cause her to loose him. One of my favorite scenes is when Sher and Landon babysit her siblings for a day. Sher's mother has no control over the kids but they listen to Sher like she's the mom. But when she's not looking, they're into all sorts of mischief. There a lots of sweet moments and some really hot ones too. I love the tricks Landon has to pull to try and keep Sher at his apartment. And love the part when Sher's mother has to use a BB gun on one of the neighbors.Landon really starts to get worried when not only Sher is keeping something from him, but it looks like Oscar and Hale are in it too. When Landon finally gets the whole story and they get all the answers from the doctor, everything is right in the world. I love a happy ending. I've tried to not giveaway the whole plot of the story. Here a few of my favorite quotes."I'm so damn hard I could cut a mirror into a glass chandelier with my junk." -location 173"I've got a good package and Sher is tighter than a welfare Christmas."-location 217"That's why you're walking like Pinocchio just gave you a nose job."-location 334"You can't palm them like basketballs, you sasquatch! They're sore!"-location 1412

    I honestly don't know what to expect on this book. I enjoyed Halle Marre and after reading it I vowed to myself that I would read its companion novel and happily it didn’t fail. Yay!Full of Grace doesn’t have the most original line of plot; this is not the first pregnancy-romance type of book I have read just like Halle Marre which is about arranged marriage. Like the latter, I was curious as to how the author would portray a story that is already done more than a couple of times, would she do something twisted? How could she make it different?They both have plans for their own selves, but when surprises came with a positive line mark. Plans can get them together and lead them to whole new different path.Landon is a great definition for crude and sweet. Growing up with five older sisters and a childhood bestie I could say he did well on his life. I like him for saying and doing thing straight-up. Aside from that he's loyal and trustworthy not only to Sher but to his family and friends. He's fun and calm and true blue good man. He’s humor also doesn’t fail - With his "stalker modes" and pant stealing schemes, it was all hilarious. When faced with the situation, of course he was shocked but he steps up on it and is willing to take up on his responsibility. Reading from a man’s point of view brought up different opinions from me and this time, I could say Landon was really a man! His talks about emotions and hormones makes me giggle and don’t get me over the crazy ways of his mind, it makes me laugh.I can't honestly remember much of Sher from the first book so her first impression for me here is a bit annoying. Her giggles just about killed me with annoyance! I know I’m not the only one affected with it because it was hilariously fun to see Landon's different reactions to her giggles. LOL. Anyway, I don’t even know how I'm going to put up with it. Fortunately, during the half of the book the giggles slow down and she started acting normal – by her definition. She’s feisty and stubborn and can honestly keep p with Landon.They are not perfect. They told crazy and impossible things about each other. They literally made each other crazy but their falling in love was pretty sweet. They balance each other out. This story is filled with endless giddiness with the characters train of thoughts about carriage rides, sex on the beach, tattoos and pole dancing. Everything that came up on the mind of this two was plain amusing.I think the whole pregnancy thing was greatly done by the author. It was spot on. It doesn’t follow the typical line where 'girl and boy do the thing, a baby is conceived the guy went away without knowing about the baby, the girl brought the baby up and the guy came back blah'. Everything was spot on and the story is mostly about how these two expecting parents are going to handle the life ahead of them. Oh and not only that expect other twists guys! He-heIt was a very entertaining read. I would have loved to see more of Oscar and Hale here but since its She and Landon’s story, their cameos will be enough for now. It was a great companion novel and I hope something special will still come for us from this set of characters.

    Landon dances the night away with our Sher at their Best Friends' Oscar & Hale's wedding and can't keep the Sparks at bay. These two can not stop flirting with each other, they have really good chemistry and with a little booze thrown in on Landon's part one thing leads to another. Let's just say Fun was had and now enter in the repercussions...Landon comes to find out that Sher is pregnant, without a second thought he steps up and says we will handle it. I will take care of you and our baby no problem everything is going to be fine. He vows to Sher he will be there for her every step of the way. Which in turn kind of makes Sher panic abit more and she feels she isn't ready for a child yet.Our Sher though is a Stubborn, Spitfire and is Adamant on not having the baby that she can't take care of nor afford. She knows from seeing her mother struggle with raising Sher & her siblings without a father it's Tough and you can't rely on any man. Sher also doesn't want Landon to help her because he feels guilt and/or then one day pick up and leave, possibly even come to resent her for taking his life away. (Pssst Sher has a secret too... what could it be???)Sher has many other reasons for not being a young mother yet as well and one is she never has had a real childhood nor had the opportunities to do much in life yet. She has made a small bucket list and our Landon goes to so many lengths to have Sher achieve each one in hopes he can convince her they can have this baby.My Favorite parts were when Landon would hide Sher's pants, phone, and purse so she couldn't leave to go to the clinic. When she would wake and find her pants missing it was Hysterical to read what was in Landon's head and the fighting that would ensue with Sher throwing objects, screaming, threatening, and even a little violence made me laugh. (very sneaky Landon) Reading these scenes you also get that Sher Truly is Scared/Stressed to do have a baby with someone she hardly knows and is Falling for hard.She doesn't want to end up raising this baby alone and she thinks if she considers Landon's request she will fall into this place like her mother eventually and be left shattered especially after realizing she loves Landon.This story is Real with many Heart Shattering moments. The Emotions are Hard! The Decisions Tough! Life throws in more than a few Curveballs for these two and a Wrench or two but together with Landon's Determination & Unconditional Love/Support they punch Life in the face and Yell "That's all you got?" and they keep Going. Landon and Sher Deserve some Happiness and will fight to get it.I LOVED this story and I think you should Definitely BUY this Book!!! You know Why???Because you can't help but Want/Need to find out what happens with these 2 Firecrackers!!OH & Because it's Good >.~

    Lord have mercy, I love this book. I have never read anything of Misty Provencher so I was not sure what to expect. After reading Full Of Grace I am now a Fan of hers and I bought all her other books which are listed below. I have a real LOVE for books that reflects reality or deal with issues in society today. that being said this book if fun, light-hearted,sweet, sexy oh Jesus I cant wait to get onto Landon. HOT and excellently written. from the synopsis we know this book is ultimately about abortion and ones choice to decide life or death. so how can a book with such heavy subject matter be funny and light-hearted? The answer to that question is the reason I awarded Full Of Grace 5 shiny stars. from the get go I was intrigued Misty throws you right in the thick of things, so you are left with no other options than to sit your backside down and go and the journey to discover what happens when Landon and Sher's steamy one night stand results in an unplanned pregnancy. Landon wants to do the right thing and stand by her relationship or not however Sher is determine to get an Abortion. The way in which Landon goes about trying to get her to have the baby is funny on the surface but his clueless sweet actions explores the deeper difficult choices people make every day and their reasoning. by the end of the book we do a complete 180 seeing that the choice is no always cut clear nothing in life is just Black and White. every individual situation are al different and requires a choice and decision that fits that particular scenario. one solution does not fit all we all have to find our own path that you are happy with. every action had an equal and opposite reaction. "Life inst fair. But neither is death and being subjected to either is cruel. Anyone who thinks that making choices is a thing-is a damn fool." I will take the quote away with me a hold it close because it could not be more true. and I am speaking from personal experience. enough with the heavy stuff. Landon lets talk about him. I really enjoyed his character such a sweet beautiful caring loving man. ohh and funny his crazy antics to try get her to keep the baby was just hilarious. he was so clueless but it was sweet watching him trying to make it work the best he could and try to figure out his feelings at the same time. Sher was a tricky one at first but then she starts hitting and fighting from then I was with her 100% a strong brave girl who knows how to handle and protect herself. I like that it was written from his POV it was different but a very good different its time for the makes to tell their stories. keep setting trend Ms Provencher this book is a must read.

    How good can a female author be at writing a male voice in a book? In this case, enough to sweep me up for a day and fall completely in love with a total guy’s guy named Landon!We first meet Landon in Hale and Oscar’s story, Hale Maree. Full of Grace immediately picks up where Hale Maree ended (yay!). Landon is nursing a bruised ego but thoroughly enjoying himself at Hale and Oscar’s wedding. He’s paired up in the wedding party with Sher, Hale’s best friend in the entire world. We all know I’m not a recap-er so I’ll just stop here and say that we all know what happens at a wedding – everybody is looking at everyone else with stars in their eyes and liquor on their brains.CharactersMs. Provencher over and over again demonstrates her writing flexibility from one book to the next and this book is no different! She does an amazing job capturing Landon and a total guy’s point of view. Better yet, a 24 year old guy’s point of view! I had so much fun reading Landon! He made me giggle, cringe, and swoon from one page to the next. And the best part was that Ms. Provencher didn’t focus on any “Cinderella” aspect to the story! I noticed that not once was there mention of what kind of car Landon drove, where he worked or what he did for a living, what kind of clothes he wore – he was just Landon, the character.And then there was Sher, just the frightened 18 year old girl who’s trying desperately to live her life the way she wants. In the case of the subject of this story, I’m actually quite glad we’re not in her head listening to her thoughts. We get to see her thought processes acted out in actions, not words. I really didn’t think that much of Sher in Hale Maree but by the end of this book, I really liked her.For you Oscar and Hale fans, there’s plenty of them in this story making small cameos. But who really steals the show is Landon’s sister, Gina. I would love to have her for my best friend any day!!!!!StoryYes, Ms. Provencher is at it again with provocative story lines. I won’t go into too much detail about the story but there’s more going on than just Landon’s rights to the baby. And the absolutely best part is, this book won’t weigh you down with heavy, deep, sorrowful, sad feelings after you read it. It’s actually a pretty fun, hysterical at times story that flies by and is over way too quickly!!! I seriously read this in one evening. I’ve never done that before.‘Nuff said.review appears on My ParaHangover

    Very, very enjoyable, fun & smexy read! Full review to come! 4.5 bananas/giggles/stars! Full review updated 9/17/14 on http://bookcrush.inWell if you thought I liked Hale Maree, you have no idea how much I adored Full of Grace! I of course read it as soon as it was released. You just don’t skip a Misty book! In the second book of the Crossed & Bared series, we get to follow the story of Hale’s best friend Sher and Oscar’s best friend Landon. Things didn’t start to get interesting for Sher & Landon until Hale & Oscar’s wedding night. Well no spoiler here, if you read the synopsis, but a one night romp turns into a game of get to know each other and some hefty decisions about their futures.My first reaction when I started this series was that I really didn’t like Landon all that much, especially in Hale Maree but this is Misty, and I trust her story telling and hoped Landon would grow on me. Well let me tell you that Landon did prove me wrong. He so, so changed my mind about him and quick! Landon is a stand up guy and anyone who can handle the spitfire that is Sher and deal with her giggles is a guy I want to know! He was adorable, sweet and so damn sexy! Like sexier than Oscar, sexier than I expected! This one turns up the heat…big time. WHOA!The story of a one-night stand resulting in pregnancy is a story told, but this one is different, trust me! This book is so much fun and feels very realistic, that is if good men really exist (I may not have the experience to know -ha!). Have I mentioned Misty writes such amazing, playful characters and such fun scenes! Oh & huge shout out to Gina, Landon’s sister. She effing rules and I may be biased *wink wink* but best secondary character ever!Honestly, there was more to like than dislike, there is always that little something for us readers that we just can’t get behind in a book, and for me in this book it was Sher’s immaturity & possibly her giggling. But it was minor for me and nothing that stops you from devouring this fun, quick read and thoroughly enjoying it!I want to scream to everyone that you MUST read these books! I mean there is no ugly cry, no devastating heartbreak, just all fun and sexy! Shoot do yourself a favor and read all of Misty’s books! I may not be a wordsmith, but I can tell you this, even if there are flaws in any of her books they are so satisfying and extremely enjoyable! With only a few days left until the start of Autumn, grab these books and take them to the beach, if the cover doesn’t already entice you than hopefully my review will.

    4.5I 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, Ocsar, 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!

    Misty does it again. She created another story that grabbed ahold of me and was unwilling to let go. I adore this series and even think I loved this one more than HALE MAREE. That is definitely saying something because I inhaled that one and loved every single bit of it. But the whole storyline of FULL OF GRACE, the characters, and the uncertainty of everything they were facing...it had me experiencing all kinds of emotions. I was a mess. Yes, a good mess though. Elated? Oh, most definitely. Concerned? To the utmost degree. Swooning? If you don't feel a swoon coming on while reading this one, you are obviously oblivious to feelings.Landon Grace. This guy is something else. So, so happy Misty gave him his own story. I will be honest with you though. I wasn’t sure how I would like the entire story coming from his POV. Just not a huge fan of books with the POV being of a male only. I kept waiting for Sher’s side of the story to pop up but it never came. But do you know what? I actually loved it. I think it was being inside that sweet, beautiful mind of his that won me over. Landon is such a wonderful guy…inside and out. He is not perfect by any means. But he was raised right and it shows. Now he must do everything he can to convince Sher that she can have a life and have a baby. It is just going to take some time and some trusting to get her to see that this is his baby too and he is not going anywhere.Sher Traifere. Oh lord this girl was also something else. Her never ending chorus of giggles about had me wanting to grate my eyes out with a soup ladle. But I had to tell myself that she was just a young girl and I admit I was very similar at times. (Hangs head at admittance.) But even with her being young, she is still smart gal. She knows that life won’t get much better than the way she was raised, but would love nothing more than to escape it and live a normal life. A life much different than that of her mother. She knows if she continues on with this pregnancy, then she can pretty much guarantee that it will be the exact same path her mother has taken. Landon just has to step in and convince her otherwise.FULL OF GRACE was just a fantabulous read that I devoured and loved. It is a must read and I think those that pick it up will enjoy it as much as I did.

    I was so excited to hear that Landon was going to get his own story, however I didn’t think it was going to be like this! I had the idea that Sher, Hale’s best friend, was going to play an important part and I knew it was going to be awesome. I was completely blown away by the turn out of the book. It’s no secret that Landon was my favorite, even from Hale Maree. There was just something about Landon that stuck with me and had me begging the author to give him his own book. Especially after having to put up with the psycho ex-girlfriend.Misty always captures my attention from the beginning of the book, but like Landon I have to admit Sher’s giggling got on my nerves. Also like Landon I had to remind myself that she’s an 18 year old girl with a crush on the epically hot boy. Yup, Landon you’re hot, you know this from our last interview :) hahaOk so a little bit about the book yea? Well I hate spoilers so I’m not going to elaborate much because, well, I’ll give away spoilers and we don’t want that. Landon meets Sher at Oscar’s and Hale’s wedding. Close to being 10 bananas, maybe slightly more, one night in the pool house turns into something much more. First times are supposed to be remembered and boy do they remember that night. But just when things start looking up for Landon, beautiful girl, fatherhood on his mind, and deadest on changing Sher’s mind about “getting rid” of the baby, the other shoe drops. What’s the news that Sher has been keeping from Landon? Will Landon stick by even after the news is out? Can he be the bigger man even if the news doesn’t sway his way?“It would be such a mistake, Sher, to deprive the world of another you.”All these questions will be answered and trust me when I say you are going to LOVE Landon more than you did before after this book. There is one certain thing that I absolutely LOVED and I mean LOVED about the way Misty wrote Landon, it involves letters he writes to someone. Those touched my heart and will always have me saying Landon is just as swoon worthy as any other guy, if not more! So good job Misty, I love Landon more now than I did before. Which is crazy because I loved him uber hard already.

    Full Of Grace by Misty Provencher was a very unique story. I wasn't sure if I was going to be lost. It is a companion novel the previous book is called Hale Maree. It originated between the couples best friends. I wasn't lost at all. I loved these characters and all their quirkiness. Definitely a story I am so happy to got a hold of. Sher and Landon end up having a one night stand at their friends wedding. It was the romantic atmosphere and a little bit of alcohol that contributed to their trist. Landon tried contacting Sher several time, a little out of guilt and she never returned his calls. So Landon assumes that she wasn't interested in anything other than their one night. Well turns out their one night stand resulted in Sher becoming pregnant. Landon wants to do the right thing by her. Sher doesn't want to end up like her mother. She has a bucket list and always wanted to finish it before she started a family. So there are a lot of choices to be made. Can Landon convince her to keep the baby and become the family she always dreamed of? I have to say Landon is such a stand up guy. He is so sweet, and a little clueless at how girls think. But really he does his best throughout the whole book to prove himself to Sher. You can't help but feel bad for her, she really is a good person. One who wants to make the right decision about her baby and Landon's involvement. Along the way they get to know one another and become very protective of each other. The night her baby was made was the night their deal was sealed. Everything happens for a reason. These two are so romantically charged, you can't help but love and want a happy ending for them. You will love all the sweet moments in this story. I can guarantee many emotions while reading happiness, anger, sympathy, and last but not least love. So go pick up a copy today.

    From my blog.**ARC provided by author for an honest review**When got the email to sign up for the blog tour, I could only remember that I really liked Hale Maree, but for the life of me, I couldn't remember what the book was about. So, I had to find out the book and read some parts of it. It took me some time to remember the story line and figure out who's Landon and if I liked him, but once I did... Let's just say that I was signed up as fast as lightening. Now, if you haven't read Hale Maree, you really need to get to it first, before you start Full of Grace, because otherwise you will be thrown to the wolves and completely confused. However, nothing in this review should really spoil anything even if you haven't read the first book. Full of Grace is completely different from anything I've read lately. Yeah, dealing with pregnancy is a common theme in romance, but this time, nothing about it was cliche. The freshness was something I definitely enjoyed. And twists and turns kept me completely invested in the story and in the characters, and hoping that it all would play out well for them all. And you know what surprised me the most? How much I enjoyed that the whole book was from Landon's point of view. Maybe you've heard already how I've lately been kind of tired of guys acting like girls? Yeah, well, Landon really was a guy. I never once doubted that. His every move was believable. Even him falling in love with Shar was believable. The book in whole? I enjoyed it a lot. Maybe I would have love to see a bit more of Hale and Oscar, but even as it is, it's practically perfect. Should you read it? If you have read the first one and are, for some weird reason, still wondering, then definitely! If you haven't read Hale Maree, then get both of them and start reading!

    "Full of Grace" opens where book one (Hale Maree) left us, with Hale & Oscar's wedding. This time Misty focuses on Landon *sigh* & Sher. This unlikely pair share a drunken passionless & very brief encounter. Although Landon finds Sher attractive, he has no intention of a serious relationship with her & the two go about their separate lives. Unbeknownst to Landon, that night resulted in a life long commitment that will forever bind him to Sher.........She's pregnant. Landon is determined to help not only with the pregnancy, but also raising the baby. Astonished & frightened, Sher only sees one way out of this baby induced confinement - abortion. Landon finds himself using any means necessary, including hiding Sher's clothes (no you read that correctly) to convince Sher their baby's life is worth the many sacrifices they would endure. While battling for his baby's life, Landon finds himself falling in love with Sher. He wants to be with her because of who she is & the baby is just an extra bonus instead of the entire reason for them to have a future. Sher however, is battling her own demons. Despite the fact she's deeply in love with Landon, Sher refuses to follow in her mother's footsteps - raising a baby alone. Is Landon's love strong enough to overcome Sher's insecurities or will she leave & walk away from the best thing that ever happened to her?What I thought:I loved this book!! Even though it deals with some heavy topics (unplanned pregnancy & abortion), Misty keeps it light & funny. From surprise temporary tattoos to beautiful love letters, I found myself laughing hysterically to crying joyful tears. You won't be able to put this book down & you will absolutely fall in love with these unbelievably realistic characters.

    4.5/5Full review:After reading HALE MAREE, I was really excited for FULL OF GRACE. HALE MAREE was phenomenal and to know more about this series was definitely a high for me. So, FULL OF GRACE released and finding out it was about Landon and Sher, I was let down a tad, but still eager to find out more about Hale's best friend.So, I began reading and found that FULL OF GRACE was written in Landon's POV. What a cool switch. I knew then that I was going to like this. So, the first chapter begins and after the first 10% I was getting worried. I was not liking Sher and Landon did not drag me in either. *shaking my head* I was like, OH NO!!BUT....Once I got passed the first 15-20% I really started liking Landon...A LOT!!! My first of impression of him changed and I started seeing him for the man he really is. And he only kept getting better all the way through the book. What an OUTSTANDING guy!! When a crisis would arise, he would just amaze me at how handled it. He is definitely the kind of guy every girl dreams of. Loyal, honest, fun, reliable, and HOT!!! And thank goodness for Landon...I can't tell you how many times Sher got on my nerves. I know...I know...she was young and dealing with MAJOR life changing events, but GAH!! Nonetheless, I can say that by the end of the book, she wore on me and I started liking her a little more. I saw her grow from the insecure giggling girl to a more confident stable woman. Someone that took the punches life threw at her and always got back up, determined to keep her head held high and try to be happy.FULL OF GRACE is a quick, romantic read that touches your heart. Take a chance on Landon and find out just how super this guy really is!! www.tsktskwhattoread2.blogspot.com

    If you haven’t read Hale Maree, I strongly recommend that you do before reading this book. Landon began endearing himself to me in Hale Maree. He seemed so fun of fun and laughter. I was excited to follow up with him in his own story. Writing the whole book from Landon’s POV was brilliant. His personality was perfect for telling what, at times, was a very heavy story. I loved being inside his head. He is funny, passionate, a little alpha dominate, determined, and loving. His immediate acceptance of the baby and desire to be a father, melted my heart. I ached for him in his fight for that little one. He is the superhero of the story, not only in his pursuit of his child (genetically or not), but his pursuit of Sher, who I didn’t always feel deserved it.Let me first say, I loved this book. However, it will never top Hale Maree for me. Mostly because Sher really drove me crazy for a lot of the book. First with the giggling, then with her determination to terminate the pregnancy without considering the feelings of Landon. My heart broke for him, and I really want to slap her upside the head. At the same time, they complement each other, and I enjoyed watching them fall in love. I understood her fear of raising a child with the other possible father’s DNA, but I was disappointed that, by the end of the book, she was still unwilling to have faith in Landon’s feelings for her beyond the genetics of the baby. I did eventually come to love her, but that doesn’t mean I wasn’t frustrated by her attitude and decisions. Overall, Sher and Landon are a fun couple, all though Landon is absolutely what sells the book for me. He is dreamy…

    Misty is one of my favorite authors, and to date I've read everything she has written, at least that I know of. Since I really enjoyed reading Hale Maree, I was extremely excited to read this 'companion book'. I think that Misty took on an edgy storyline here, which is something I admire about her writing, she doesn't fit in a box.Landon was a sweet guy who just watched his best friend get married. He had no way of knowing how this night would change his life forever.Sher had a plan, one that had been in place for years. However, with her best friend, Hale, getting married, her plan was now majorly altered. As we grow up we think we have the universe figured out, and then we graduate from High School only to find the universe doesn't play by our rules.What I liked: I really enjoyed how the story was totally written from Landon's point of view. Typically we read from the girl's PoV, or a mixture of PoVs from several characters; rarely do you see it totally from the guy's perspective.What I didn't like: Sher. Plain and simple, she just got on my nerves for the majority of the book, and it wasn't until close to the end that I actually warmed up to her. I'm not saying she's the worst character written, because I don't think that is the case. I actually feel she was written well, her personality is just one that grates on my nerves. The fact that her personality came across so vividly is a testament to how well Misty writes.Would I recommend the book: Yes. Although this is not my favorite book by Misty, it is still a very good read.

    3.5 StarsAn enjoyable read! Both the first and second book have characteristics that I loved more than the other. While I do love that Landon has a bit more sense of humor, I still love Oscar a bit more because I find him a little more of a romantic (not that Landon isn't romantic in his own way as well). Landon, however, is more sex crazed which adds to the humor as he always tries to contain his sexual urges in the strangest of ways. (;I don't hate Sher, but her giggling kind a got on my nerves. I know that some leading ladies have some signature quality that makes them special in their lover's eyes, but did hers have to be giggling? I would have preferred if it were something like the sound of her laugh being her signature quality. (Sorry if I sound negative, but there's only so much giggling I can handle).One of the things I like about the book is that it forces you to witness all the outcomes of impulsive decision making. It definitely frustrated my throughout the entire book as I watched both Landon and Sher make the "wrong" decision and having to battle through the outcomes. It just reinforces the notion about how love (and life) isn't easy.Overall, if you fell in love with the first book, you'll like the second one as well (maybe even love it more than the first as I've seen others mention that they do). Fair warning: there's steamy sex scenes, hormonal tantrums, high levels of frustration, an unbelievable secret, and LOTS of giggling.

    The only boy in a large family, Landon makes a refreshing male lead, in that his immediate thought isn't to wash his hands of Sher, or to encourage her to terminate her unwanted pregnancy, but to try to persuade her to keep the baby. Not that he initially thinks the whole thing through, which he realises when he and Sher start living together and reality kicks in.Essentially this is a love story in a similar vein to Knocked Up, only it's a lot more sexy. Landon and Sher initially have very little in common, except their best friends. Despite morning sickness and secrets, they grow closer together and bond over the consequences of their one night stand.Landon was an enjoyable character to read and it was interesting to see his development as a character. He did some wonderfully lovely and crazy things to win Sher over – you'll have to read the book to find out what lengths he goes to!I have to admit, Sher grated on me a little, but eventually I warmed to her. I'd have liked to see more of Hale and Oscar, but this isn't their story, so it isn't surprising they're relegated to a cameo role.Overall, Full of Grace is a sweet, at times funny and often sexy story about two young people falling in love under difficult circumstances.I received a free copy of Full of Grace in exchange for an honest review.

    3.75 stars While Hale Maree was lighter and funnier, Full of Grace was much deeper and serious. This time, MP tackles the storyline of the man who wants the girl to keep the baby, through the H's pov. Laced with humor, from Landon stealing Sher’s pants to fulfilling Sher’s “mom” bucket list, Landon must convince Sher that although her fear of turning out like her mother mayb be very founded, her life may not necessary turn out that way. “I’m looking for a chance too, Sher. However that glues us together.” I reach for her hand. “You can live with me, or next door to me, or down the street—whatever you want. You can go to college and I’ll take care of the baby at night. You can date and screw people on the beach and I’ll watch the baby, if you want. I’ll do whatever I can to make it work for both of us, if you just give this baby a chance, Sher.” (location 937)“I’m just saying, Sher…it’s harder for me not to be into you. The more you’re around, the more I want you to be. You’re a potato chip. The more I have, the more I want.” That’s the truth. I might not know who this girl is, but I want to. I want more of that feeling she gave me, when she came into the room after we’d been apart. She settles everything in my head back into place, just by being here. Whatever that is, I want it.

    Full Of Grace by Misty Provencher Although I didn't read Hale Maree the book that introduced the characters to this book I thought this book could stand on its own. This story was very cute. Sher and Landon met at their best friends wedding and they had a one night stand . Or was it ? Sher was a 18 year old virgin when she met Landon and once Landon figured the virgin part out he can't help but feel guilty and try to contact her. When his best friend returns from honeymoon with pictures he invited Landon and Sher over for diner. The story continues with Landon trying to convince Sher to be with him and keep the baby. The writer wrote some funny descriptions of Sher's giggle ( i couldn't help but giggle myself) and the banana remarks, really funny. I enjoyed the back and forth between Sher and Landon and how their friends get involved. I couldn't help but root for Landon when he was trying to win Sher over and talk her into keeping the baby. I enjoyed the part where Landon was writing to his baby , thought that was very cute . I also enjoyed the description of Sher's siblings, when she leaves the room they turn into nightmares. I also thought Landon trying to make Sher happy by fulfilling her bucket list was very romantic. Over all I thought this story was very cute and romantic.
