AUTHOR: LISA EUGENE
An insane love that will keep you from falling---or push you right off the edge.
All she needed was a job…
The last thing twenty-four year old grad student Angie Roberts needs is to worry about her new boss’s father. After all, she’s never even seen him. He remains sequestered upstairs in a house that looks like it should be the main feature in an episode of Hoarders. She had no idea the house was such a dump when she took the job. But she’s concerned about the safety and health of the old man living under such horrid conditions.
What she got was a mystery…
Despite warnings not to venture upstairs, she wanders up to the second floor. What she sees is shocking. The man she finds is a gorgeous, sexy, middle-aged man-- and he's stepping out of the shower. But something is definitely not right. Why would this wealthy, handsome man live in a house in such disrepair while his nine-teen year old son resides in a lavish penthouse? Why does he hide away from society? Why does he come to her rescue and then run away?
What she discovered was heartbreaking…
Angie learns that forty-four year old Grayson Whitmore suffers from schizophrenia. Paranoid, he retreats into his own world.
What she ended up with was a treasure…
Angie is determined to get through to Grayson. They form a friendship that blazes into an inconceivable love fired with raging passion. Angie must now come to Grayson’s rescue because the wicked that has been perpetrated on him is unconscionable. First, though, she must gain the trust of a man whose mind does not allow for such a thing.
Whats it all about:
Angie & Grayson. Getting over / around life's hurdles.
What I thought:
So Angie is a nurse and student who needs extra cash to pay the rent. She see's a job advert for a cleaner a few hours a week and gets the job. Her SUPER creepy, leechy, yucky boss Charles takes her to a big old klepto house, and tells her it needs sorting to make it safe. For his dad. Who lives upstairs. And she is to NEVER go upstairs. Because he is dangerous....
So of course, she goes upstairs, catches him playing tug of war... with himself. Turns out, he's a bit of a fitty and not the decrepit old dude she thought he was.
"His body jerked several more times in the chair and for a moment, I was afraid that it might topple backward or break. I held my breath, awed by this amazing moment, and this beautiful man. I looked down at my hands that were marked with fine tremors. When I glanced back up, I almost screamed in gut wrenching shock...."
Anyway, they build something together and with what Angie does for a career, she has understanding of Grayson's problem, so they do their thing and start to work on it together.
Charles becomes an UBER prick and pulls some proper dick moves, but our Ange is smart!
Super Nice HEA in this one that I loved.
"I could never get enough of Grayson. He was woven into the very fabric of my soul and his love had a permanent imprint on my heart"
