All the best fairytale princesses have the most horrific pasts. Mine just happens to be more horrific than most.
Fantasizing over Vaughn Asher was a dream. Meeting Vaughn Asher was a fairytale. Loving Vaughn Asher was my downfall.
The past is always there. Waiting. Waiting to expose you. Waiting to ruin you. Waiting to take you back.
Sometimes not even a prince can save you.
Profile took me on a wild and very scary ride, as Grace had to figure out how to flee once more. With my heart in my throat, I kept wanting to close my eyes for fear something terrible would happen to one of my favourite heroines.
My Profile review:
Please beware that Profile is the fifth book in the Social Media series, and even if I try very hard to not post anything spoilerish, there are some spoilers from prior books in my review this time. If you aren’t up to date, read at your own discretion.
In Profile, Grace and Vaughn are separated – not by choice – for most of the story, and it made all past decisions, petty arguments and little things seem much less important, and very important at the same way. I loved to see how strong Grace was in this story, she has grown so much since the beginning of the series, and she’s able to think hard about how to do things in order to save herself. And the saving herself part made me think of the movie Pretty Woman – when he comes to save her, and asks her what happens next: She saves him right back! In Profile, though, Grace managed to save herself, even if Vaughn was doing everything in his power and more to save her and bring her back home once more.
The pace isn’t very fast, but my heart was still beating like crazy throughout Profile because of the implications of everything Grace said and did. She had to be one step ahead, and a little smarter for the whole story, and when she got her chance, she grabbed it and did whatever it took to make it out alive, safe and still being herself. I was amazed by her because she finally realized just how strong she was, and how capable she was when she felt like she had to be.
Vaughn was present in Profile as well, of course, we still got chapters from his POV, and while he was compelling too in his search for Grace, she completely outshone him in this instalment.
Some of my favourite Profile quotes:
It’s an ominous feeling to be inside this box right now. It makes me feel helpless. And trapped. For the first time in my life my status has little meaning. for the first time in my life my money has little meaning. for the first time in my life I realize life is meaningless without the person you want to share it with.
He pulls me up and heads for the bedroom, pulling me behind him. I trip over the end of the coffee table and go down to the floor, but he never stops. He drags me the rest of the way.
But I’m not complaining. Because he’s better. He’s better than anything I could ever have hoped for. He’s romantic and tender. Commanding and kind. He’s protective and loving and generous and… mine.
