Overview

Adult contemporary romance. Intended for readers 18+

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 pent-house? 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 schiz-ophrenia. 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.

What a powerful emotional book. It may start off a little slow, but wow this books packs a punch. Angie takes a job to clean out an old house she soon realizes an odd man is in residence. Grayson suffers from schizophrenia and it's amazing to watch the transformation he makes with his friendship with Angie. The love Angie has to stay by his side and fight for him is truly heartwarming. Of course there are big obstacles they have to hurdle over, but when you witness their connection and love you know they have the will to jump. I absolutely LOVED the epilogue. Such a sweet way to see these years down the road. This book definitely has some steamy moments, but when they come together you can feel the emotional connection. I highly recommend reading this one.

Reviewed by Rabia Tanveer for Readers' Favorite In Grayson by Lisa Eugene, Angie Roberts is desperate for money. She is 24 years old and a nurse. In desperation, she takes a job to clean out a house. She thought this would be an easy job, but when she enters the house, she realizes that it is not going to be as easy as she thought. Angie thought that the house would be owned by a really old, sweet man, but it turns out that the owner of the house is 44, built like a dream, and really hot. Grayson has learned early on that he needs to live his life alone. Due to his condition, he prefers seclusion to the company of his family and his son. But when this nurse came into his house, he felt something that he forbade himself to feel a long time ago. Angie is sweet and kind and he cannot let her get closer. His illness is not for a soft hearted person like her. But the more he pushes her away, the tighter she clings onto him. What can he do when she will not let him go? Letting her in is not an option, but what if he did? Can he take this chance? There are some novels that have the tendency to forcibly make a place in your heart and never get out. Grayson by Lisa Eugene was that one for me. When I read the blurb, I knew this novel was going to be good, but it exceeded all my expectations. Grayson is such an amazing man and Angie is a really good person. The conflicts in this novel are real and very true. The author didn’t sugarcoat anything and that brought out beauty and real emotions in the novel. You will have to read this book because that is the only way you will truly appreciate it. Five stars and many more! I loved it.

Grayson, Lisa Eugene Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews  Genre:  Romance, Health mind and body,  Well, as this book is already out I was able to read a sample on Amazon and it sounded a fun, intriguing read. I love romance but sometimes the stories feel very similar so something with an edge, a bit different is welcome and this covers mental health issues so fitted that brief.  I’ve mixed feeling about the book though. The mental health aspect was handled very sensitively, I don’t know anyone with Grayson's issues so can’t say how realistic it was portrayed, but it certainly felt very real, and I understood Grayson fears and reactions. How scary too if someone else holds control of you – I can see the need, but also the potential for abuse...The actual story – well, I kept thinking re Angie’s actions “ who would do that/behave like that?” I can’t imagine anyone doing what she did, but then for the sake of fiction I accepted it as fact and took the story from there. I found it an enjoyable read, the behaviour of her sort of boyfriend Mark sadly very real, her teen sisters actions genuine, teens think they know it all and everyone is stopping them from doing what they really need to do – I’ve been a teen Winking smile I remember that feeling! Then there’s the nursing hours issues, the family problems with her mum’s health issues causing financial difficulties, and of course the struggle to balance studying with work to pay for it...they are problems that are universal across countries.  So Angie, a great girl, and I had respect for her way of supporting her family and working so hard for what she wanted, a good education and a chance of a decent career. When she meets Charles she sums him up instantly, and like her I found him arrogant and a creepy jerk. Then there’s her sister Anna, a teen who loves her family but is feeling restricted. Grayson – the other lead. I loved the sexual tension between him and Angie, but felt things progressed far too quickly. Its a shortish read though and I guess that’s why it went this way. Another 75-100 or so pages though to allow for a slower, more natural build up would have made this a five star read for me, its a great book, but I  felt the way their first meetings went was just awkward, didn't feel genuine – who gives someone a naked pic as an apology??? and that spoiled the book for me. It’s well written though, and flows naturally, made me smile when she calls him crazy, and then has a moment of horror when she realises that – well – he IS crazy...oops. I’m an amputee and of course there are sayings like break your legs, don’t run away, put your foot down, that I’ve heard very often and have caused whoever is saying it a moment of embarrassment – no need, its natural and it makes me laugh!!  Though I’d guessed some of what was going to happen I hadn’t worked out how Lisa was going to get the characters where they needed to be. A neat short epilogue too – I do like these, a few pages to see who things play out after all the dramas.   Stars: Four, a great read if you can get past the odd start Angie and Grayson have ARC supplied by Netgalley and publishers

A Brilliantly Emotional Read!! This book was a great read. It was different and had an extremely novel plotline. Lisa Eugene delivered a fantastically refreshing story that was not afraid to deal with serious mental health issues, and which dealt with them in a realistic manner. Grayson was an extremely moving and heartfelt read, and I enjoyed every single second of it. If you have not read this one, I highly recommend it.

Sensitive, emotional, sensual, tender and gripping are but a few words to describe this story. All is not as it seems. It takes a lot of courage to face your demons and if you find a friend to help you along the way , well, that can make a whole new world of difference. Angie is a determined and independent woman. She is courageous as well as loyal. Her heart has the capacity to love and protect as well as give her the courage to fight like a lion for what she believes. Sequestered in the house where he was born, Grayson has built walls around his heart as well as his body. Unable to deal with the death of his wife five years ago, his mild schizophrenia has spiraled out of control. The pills don't help when he thinks they are poisonous. People disturb him as well as crowds and their noise. This solitude provides some peace, but the loneliness is overbearing. There is evil working in the background scheming to further bring down Grayson. This evil is not of the supernatural kind. This is a living, breathing fiend set on usurping all that Grayson once accomplished. This is not out of revenge, but as uncaring greed and lack of empathy. What struck me while reading this book was the kindness and sensitivity Angie provides Grayson while dealing with his mental health. Great strides have been accomplished in providing support to schizophrenics so they can function in the world. What this story brought to my mind was how easily people can manipulate a patient with this illness. We owe these patients every opportunity to live a normal life, with compassion, acceptance and emotional support.

It took me a few days to decide if I wanted to read this story. While the premise was solid and the book was absolutly delightful. I feel cheated. I wish it had been longer and it is my fervent hope that she will revisit this couple. I would love to see what came after she saved him don't get me wrong the epilouge was amazing I just want more it was worth the money I PAID FOR it!!!!!

Received an ARC in return for an honest review... It seems unfair to say that this review will be unbiased as I have fallen in love with a character named Grayson. I have read this book three times since I've received it and I am amazed that every time I read it...it just gets better. Once again Lisa Eugene has found a way to not only engage my mind but my heart with this incredible story of overcoming true obstacles,insecurities and fears in order to find love. She cleverly breached the sensitive issue of mental illness and found a way to endear this man, who is struggling with it, into my psyche. With determination and fearlessness Angie Roberts found a way to break down the walls that Grayson has erected to keep himself safe. And while some of his fears are unfounded and created by the illusions within his mind it doesn't mean that they aren't real. Grayson and Angie find themselves fighting not only his mental illness but real adversaries that want nothing more than to destroy what may be his only chance for happiness. You'll fall in love with these characters and will find yourself questioning the stigmas that our society has successfully created in regards to those who battle with mental illness. Truth be told I have fallen under Ms. Eugene's spell once again.
