Sunny Shelly Review: My Saving Grace, by Melanie Moreland

A fun and emotional opposites attract office romance that will speak to your heart.

Meet the next generation of BAM

“This standalone is the first of a new generation that is everything I loved about The Contract blown up. The scorching heat, the hurt and anger, the broken grumbly hero with the huge heart he knows nothing about. A top 2021 read for me, My Saving Grace had it all and I can’t wait for more of the ABC Corp!”

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

My Saving Grace is the first book in a new spinoff series, and a connector between Melanie Moreland’s ABC Corp and Vested Interest series. It is a standalone, and I enjoyed it, but I think i would have been more into it had I read the other books. Still… it’s hot and sexy, and Grace and Jaxson are full of sizzling chemistry.

Grace is fresh out of law school and interning at a prestigious firm. She has her career plans mapped out in front of her, but meeting her sexy boss, Jaxson, throws her for a loop. There’s an immediate attraction between them, despite their age difference. Since she’s only planning to work there for a year, and Jaxson doesn’t believe in forevers, a flirty, secret, after-dark romance works well for both of them. Until it doesn’t any more. Will one of them walk away? Is there a chance of forever?

Jaxson is the typical alpha boss. Protective, dominant… but with a soft spot buried deep inside for the woman who has brought him to his knees. When things between them implode, he knows how to grovel to make things right, and he is actually very sweet once he lets his guard down and lets Grace in.

While I found this story to be all sorts of sexy and steamy, I think I would have loved it even more had I read the previous books first. From other reviews I’ve read, it seems there are a lot of parallels to Grace’s parents’ book. So maybe that is the difference in this being a 4 star versus a 5 star read. But I’m intrigued enough to want to see more from this series!

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.

New York Times/USA Today bestselling author Melanie Moreland, lives a happy and content life in a quiet area of Ontario with her beloved husband of thirty-plus years and their rescue cat, Amber. Nothing means more to her than her friends and family, and she cherishes every moment spent with them. 

While seriously addicted to coffee, and highly challenged with all things computer-related and technical, she relishes baking, cooking, and trying new recipes for people to sample. She loves to throw dinner parties, and also enjoys traveling, here and abroad, but finds coming home is always the best part of any trip. 

Melanie loves stories, especially paired with a good wine, and enjoys skydiving (free falling over a fleck of dust) extreme snowboarding (falling down stairs) and piloting her own helicopter (tripping over her own feet.) She’s learned happily ever afters, even bumpy ones, are all in how you tell the story.
