Greyson East left his mark on me.

As the young girl who first fell for him, I didn’t know much about life. I did know about his smiles, though, and his laughs, and the strange way my stomach flipped when he was near.

Life was perfect…until it wasn’t, and when we were forced to go our separate ways, I held on to our memories, let go of my first crush, and wished for the day I’d find him again.

When my wish came true, it was nothing like I imagined.

I couldn’t have known when I took the nanny position that it would be his children I looked after, that my new boss would be that boy I used to know, that boy who was now a man—a cold, lonely, detached man.

The smile and laugh I had loved so much were gone, now distant memories. Every part of him was covered in a fresh pain.

When he realized who I was, he made me promise to do my job and my job only.
He made me promise not to try to get to know him, not to recall the memories I’d treasured all this time.

But, sometimes, I saw the boy I’d once known in his stormy eyes. I saw the Greyson who smiled and laughed, who had stolen a young girl’s heart, and there was no doubt in my mind that this boy was worth fighting for.

I was given a second chance with the one who’d left his mark on me. All I hoped was that somehow I’d leave a mark on his soul, too.

 

ARC provided for an unbiased review.

Eleanor Gable and Greyson East came from two different worlds. A shared experience brought them together and formed an unlikely friendship. But as the friendship blossomed, they were forced to find their own path. Years later, they were brought back together but nothing was like what they knew and remembered.

“Please don’t do this…”
“Do what?”
“Make it so clear that I’m failing this family.”

It’s been a long time since a book made my eyes puffy, but this one did it and I loved everything seconds of the heart wounding moments. The first part of the book was so cute that my cheeks hurt from smiling but at the same time was so sad that I’ve probably added wrinkles on my forehead from frowning.

It was impossible not to fall for both Grey and Ellie. They carried tremendous hurt individually and inadvertently hurting the people around them. I liked how the author presented the issues faced by the characters realistically and resolved it organically. And the supporting characters added depth and heart into the story. One thing though, I wish there was more information on his life in between the periods.

“But just because two people are meant to be together, doesn’t mean it has to happen right this second. Sometimes the best love stories are about those who waited.”

Eleanor & Grey is a story of love, loss, and healing. It would appeal to readers who love to be immersed in an emotionally charged story of second chance romance.

Final Verdict:

This review is also available on Goodreads.
