New Review! Saving Grace by Gigi Aceves 3.5 Cranky Stars

Saving GraceSaving Grace by Gigi Aceves
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

3.5 Cranky Stars

Okay. So. Ahem.

Where do I begin??? So, basically, this is Christian erotica. But softly.

There. I said it.

Looks around nervously* Not dead? Okay...whew!! So let's get into it!

So this book was part suspenseful thriller and part romance. HEAVY on the romance and damsel-in-distress theme.

Throw in a few Catholic nuns and a dark and dangerous hero....while it isn't quite The Sound of Music, I can almost hear Mother Superior singing in the hills..

Grace, sheltered for her life since an early tragedy with her family by the nuns, ventures forth into the dangerous world...Unbeknownst to her bad guys are waiting in the wings....and her savior is not currently sharing loaves and fishes but is packing military grade heat and has a serious chip on his muscular shoulder. The storyline is rather predictable, but what is not are the contrasts between the gratuitous sex scenes (scornfully depicted) and the LOVEMAKING scenes which are depicted in such beautiful, romantic language....throw in the religious undertones and you get: Christian erotica.

I actually liked the storyline and the author does a good job of building suspense. I think she could have just left out the sex scenes altogether and this would read quite well in the genre of Christian fiction. While not outright religious, you always get the sense that lust is a sin...at least until you get married!

How do you solve a problem like Grace and Nix??????
