I adored the artistic spirit of the story, and how inspiring it was, just reading it.
The characters are another note that I loved about the story. Every single one of Rosie and Herbs boys has proven to be stellar men, and Grady doesn't disappoint in that department either, or in any other for that matter. His determination, will, and perseverance to make a future with Sapphire is admirable, him knowing exactly what he wants, and goes after it, honestly, openly, and with hope in his heart.
Sapphire has her doubts, not about Grady so much, but her own ability to pick a good man, and mostly, not trusting another male artist in relationship matter ever again was her vow.
They are steaming hot together, the sexy times are frequent and blazing hot, each and every one of them. But there's also heart, caring, deep feelings involved, making it beautiful, delightful, and luscious as well, even lovingly tender at times.
I liked the humor, the lightness of the tale at times, I enjoyed Grady and Sapphire together, the connection between them was more than just physical, even though that side of them was blistering hot. But they also got each other in a deeper, meaningful level as an artist gets another, as a person can understand and accept the other, as they are, with faults and all. And in this nurturing, giving, accepting environment, it is easier to learn to trust again, to learn to hope again, and to learn to take a leap of faith again, to feel the lightness of love and life again
