Thoughts on Grave: 

  • Grave is a man running from so many demons. 
  • MMA fighting
  • Drag Racing
  • Drugs
  • sex with Lucy 
  • His fellow Kings can not seem to help him or give him a reason to let his demons go. 
  • Mommy Issues/Daddy Issues
  • April has the care of her teen age brother since the death of her Mother along with trying to keep open her mother’s beloved Flower Shop, Roses
  • April’s brother has gotten himself in debit to the wrong people
  • The intensity of this story is what I have come to expect from Tessier.  She writes a very angsty love story.  

Ending (Spoilers): it is never clear from the beginning how they will reach their HEA
