I am surprised by how much I enjoyed this book and how much I related to Grace. She is funny and corny and crazy without being uncomfortably so. Her quirks feel natural and real instead of forced and over-the-top. She's strong but real (read: she has baggage like everyone else) and she's very likable.
I do feel like the story reminds me of a couple of other stories I've watched or read before, even watched unfold in the tabloids (not that I follow that stuff...) but I'm okay with that. Clayton managed to keep me engaged and invested throughout. Her characters are fun and enjoyable without being too serious. The ending had me immediately jumping into the second installment.
