I just want my Grace back.

I want the girl I found sending me dirty tweets on Saint Thomas. I want the girl who reluctantly gave in to my charms and let me boss her around. I want the girl who sent me to my knees and made me imagine what her fairy tale would look like with me in it.

I just want to move on.

I want to plan the future and think about kids and preschools and college funds. I want everything she ever wanted, and I want us to make it happen together.

But the media needs more from us. More dirt. More pain. More payment for past transgressions.

You can’t change the past. And even though Grace is ready to put her demons to bed, mine are just starting to get restless. Because when you’ve silenced as many enemies as I have over the years, you know that secret won’t stay buried forever.

Everything comes together perfectly in Home – in the very end! Both Vaughn and Grace still have some heartache to go through first, but they both step up to show how strong they are both as individual and as a couple!

My Home review:

Home makes the Social Media serial stay a roller coaster until the very end! Between doubts, very strong love, amazing characters and a story that made me feel out of breath, it truly brought the serial to a perfect ending. I was amazed by both Vaughn and Grace, even if I thought Grace did jump to conclusions at one point…

The way Home folded out was so well done, and the dual point of views made the story so good – I couldn’t wait to see what either of them were thinking about the situation at hand, and I really thought Grace especially showed a lot of guts in the way she handled everything that was thrown her way. Vaughn did everything he could to keep Grace from the ugly part of Hollywood – but once again, Grace showed him that she was truly capable of saving him right back! And that made her the perfect fairy tale princess in my opinion.

Being in the spotlight is never easy, and Vaughn truly showed be that throughout the whole serial. In Home, things really came to a breaking point, but both Vaughn and Grace were so much stronger than the busybodies who thrived on rumors, tabloids and ugly truths that really had nothing to do with anyone but the people concerned. Seeing how much they both have grown as characters from the very beginning in Follow, I have to say J.A. Huss has once more created characters that I was only lukewarm towards when I first got to know them – but now, I adore them both! The mix of utter hotness, romance and the fictional real life of the characters just got to me on every single page.

If you are looking for a contemporary romance that is so much more than romance, the whole Social Media serial should definitely be one of your next must-reads! The character development is astounding, the writing is really good, the dual points of views bring so much to the overall story, and the plot is well executed. I only have one thing to say: What are you waiting for??

Some of my favorite Home quotes:

Vaughn’s feet touch the bottom and there’s a moment where we feel weightless. his knees bend and he laughs underwater. his joy fills my heart as we spring up and burst through the water.

His heart beats fast. mine beats faster. his lips touch my ear so softly I shudder. “this,” he says, “is us.”

Maybe I’m not cut out for this life? I mean, Vaughn is so public. Everything about us in this town is news. I don’t understand that. I’ve been hiding from the media – from everybody – for so many years, it might not be possible to change that part of me. I don’t want to be famous. I don’t want people to know me. I want to be… invisible.

  1. I’ve been holding off reading these until all of the episodes were released, but I do believe that we have reached that point, so I need to get my butt in gear! I adore stories that are told from multiple POVs, and I love how the author incorporated social media into the plot. Have a wonderful week, Lexxie, and Merry Christmas if I don’t visit again before Thursday!

  2. She really can spin a yarn, huh?? You know my feelings about Huss so I won’t wax poetic. But this series was just as amazing as I’ve found all her series to be. I am always blown away with her stories, her characters, and her twists. I’m glad you enjoyed Home, Lexxie, and that Huss won you over with Grace and Vaughn. 🙂

    Happy Monday! **BIG HUGS**
