Review & Giveaway: Imaginary Grace by Anne Holster


Imaginary Grace
by Anne Holster

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Tanner has always gotten wants from girls-whether it's the co-ed sitting next to him in class or the scantily dressed groupies that follow his band, Hudson Nash. There's only one woman immune to his charms, and that's his mother. Tired of Tanner's hard partying, she's waiting for him to grow up and settle down, preferably with a nice girl. When she refuses to finance his tour with the band, Tanner knows he'll have to find a way to change her mind.

Grace Roberts is not like most college girls. Shy and bookish, she prefers sneakers to stilettos and never quite mastered the art of taming her mane of unmanageable hair. Guys are not exactly throwing themselves at her, so when Tanner Reed, the hottest guy in school (scratch that, the hottest guy anywhere!) takes an interest in her, it seems too good to be true.

Bound by his deception and her girlish hopes, Tanner and Grace will be forced to question everything they believe about each other, and themselves. When these two get together, anything can happen and anyone can get hurt. Anyone can fall in love.

My Review:


This book is really great, fun, cute, sweet, the plot had hooked me from the first page
Grace is a simple girl, naive,  has never been a popular girl, indeed quite the opposite, and has never done anything to be: she is always hidden behind simple clothes and long hair. She can not believe that the most popular guy in college and great rock star is attracted to her. Unfortunately she finds that is only the victim of a cruel plan.
The story is very realistic, the change of Tanner is slow, gradual, it does not take place suddenly: he is really hateful in the first part of the book then becomes the ideal boyfriend to Grace and to any other girl.
The plot is really well written and developed and is told in alternating first-person point of view of Grace and Tanner
I recommend it to those who love romance and  novels set in college or starring rock star, ideal as beach reading.

EXCERPT:


As I watched Tanner play, I thought back to all the times I had been mesmerized by the mere sight of him--in class, at the gym. They seemed so insignificant now, compared with the pure intensity etched on his sweat-drenched face, the emotion in his voice as he belted out the song, the passion with which his fingers flew on the guitar. His sweat-soaked shirt clung tightly to his muscular body as he moved with the music. I couldn’t take my eyes off him. There was a fierceness in his eyes that became even more intense with each passing moment, and it was mesmerizing to watch. This was insane!

By the time he brought the song to a close the crowd was in a complete frenzy.  He looked up and out over all the people and then, with his guitar still strapped around him, he put his fists way up and pumped them once in the air before the lights cut out. Oh my God…my boyfriend’s a rock star?!
