Description: As their careers catch fire, Grace and Jack -- everyone’s favorite foul-mouthed, funny, and feisty couple -- find themselves on opposite coasts. Grace has landed in New York City, where she loves being onstage again, particularly because she’s playing a fabulous character in a musical written by her old college flame, Michael. Their rekindled friendship makes exploring the city that much more fun. Wait, it’s just friendship, right? Meanwhile, in L.A., Jack can scarcely keep up with the swirling throngs of women who track him everywhere he goes, the endless press appearances, and the ridiculous rules his manager, Holly, keeps concocting for him -- all part of the buildup to the release of Time, his steamy new film. Thank goodness for phone sex. But even when their schedules allow them to connect, Grace and Jack must keep their relationship off the radar and away from paparazzi cameras. Sure, the sex is sensational, but can this duo survive swirling rumors, the demands of their chosen professions, Grace’s raging internal battles, and a whopping nine-year age difference? Tick-tock, the clock is ticking. Isn’t it?
Were has this series been all my life? It's just the right touch of everything that makes a book a good read. It had romance (and some steamy sex), funny parts, things that make you cry. I don't think this book would have every caught me eye if it wasn't for the title.
The book dives right into were the first book left off. I still think Grace is my favorite. She acts so confident even if inside she feels anything but. I love reading about her journey into her new career. It's the one area I think her confidence lacks and its great to watch her come into her own. I was surprised at how she managed to twist her relationship with Jack into something that it wasn't. She doubted herself and Jack's feelings. It was heartbreaking to watch.
I also really enjoyed Jack. His career is skyrocketing and I don't think he knows how to deal with it. I think he might have made some poor choices which lead to Grace feeling the way she did. But, his reaction to what Grace does was even more heartbreaking than watching Grace's own turmoil. I never feel like he's the younger one is this story. He always acts much older than he actually is.
