This is Grants story. I wasn't too keen on him in the first two books. However once I got into his head I was really hoping he'd get his happy ever after. Has he? Well of course your gonna have to 1-click to find out.
Slightly darker this book had me gripped from start to finish. The twists and turns had my heart thumping. This is one of them books where I literally could not read it fast enough yet I was sad when Id finished it. Loved loved loved it.
Through this book we learn of Grant's inner demons and why he behaves the way he did. The shining light that makes Grant question some of his behaviour and makes him feel emotions that he had long ago turned off is Cammie. Although young and having had some what of a sheltered upbringing Cammie is not totally naive about Grant and even though everyone warns her against him Cammie believes that deep down he is a good guy.
The relationship between Grant and Cammie begins as just being friends but soon they both develop feelings that are more than just friendly. By the time Cammie comes into Grant's life he is already embroiled in a plot to take down a few people around him and he has gone to great lengths to put things into place but after some revelations and how this would effect Cammie Grant begins to question what he should do.
This was a great read that I am only sorry that I took so long to star. I was shocked by certain parts of the book and felt like I had been put through the wringer emotionally but it was more than worth it. I couldn't recommend this book enough.
Grants book ..... you finally get to read his story and what a story it is.
I wasn't a massive fan of Grant in Waking Up and Eyes Wide Open , I couldn't understand why he was such a prick, I mean yes he's been dealt a crappy hand but we don't know the full story.
This is his turn to let you hear his version, and by god if your heart doesn't break for him. I found myself crying and points.
The chemistry between Grant and Cammie was beautiful.... she's such an innocent creature, surely shes too good for Grant.
He doesn't think he deserves love ..... he will taint her with all his darkness, it already controls him he can't let it consume her, shes too good for that.
But is it too late? Has Cammie already crept beneathe his skin ? Can he stop her getting hurt? Will she be the one to set grant on a new path and lead him away from the darkness? I guess you'll have to read this amazing book to find out.

Grant had the perfect life - 2 loving parents, friends, and a starting pitcher position on his high school baseball team - but it all came crashing down when he was sixteen. When his father needed him the most, a lie was revealed, destroying every relationship he had ever known. This left him angry and bitter, and looking for vengeance on those he left had robbed his life from him. He set out on a dark path to bring down the one person he felt had wronged him the most - his half-brother Tucker.
Grant does all that he can to learn about Tucker, and eventually ends up cast on the same show that Tucker stars in. With a plan forming, he sets out to destroy Tucker's life. Grant knows that he is filled with darkness, and he prefers to live that way, and actually seems to enjoy it. He is seemingly content to live this way, until Cammie enters his life. She is an unexpected ray of light that cuts through his darkness, and makes Grant begin to think that he could actually have something good in his life. For the first time in a long time, Grant has someone who truly cares for him, and that cares about as well, and an amazing friendship forms.
Cammie tries to see the good in everyone, and is Grant's biggest advocate with others on the set of their show. She often puts herself in the middle of Grant and Tucker, trying to make each of them see that the other is a good guy. When the truth of them being brothers come out, Cammie's words to Grant about Tucker come back to him, and he begins to wonder if maybe he has been wrong about Tucker, especially when he learns that Tucker didn't have the perfect life that Grant envisioned.
With relationships forming in his life that he never expected, Grant realizes that he needs to put an end to his plan, and come clean to Tucker about what he's done. Tucker surprises Grant by being there for him, and dealing with things head-on with him instead of pushing him away. This only makes Grant feel even more guilty about everything that he's done, and all the people that have been hurt as a result. And just when he thought things couldn't get any worse, everything comes crashing down once again, putting the one person that he cares about most in danger.
One of my favorite things about this book was watching Grant's transformation. It was truly heartbreaking to see what he went through as a teenager, losing the people that he cared about the most. Even through the darkness, you could see that deep down, he wasn't a bad person, and he wanted to help others in his own twisted way. And to see him almost revert back to a scared teenager when Tucker takes him to confront his past was heartbreaking all over again. He quickly went from hating Tucker to relying on him, and it was sweet to watch. With Cammie, he went from being afraid to let anyone in, to almost being afraid to ever be alone again. She helped him to see that there was good in him, and that he was worthy of love. The best part was when he finally began to believe it for himself.
Beneath His Darkness is by far one of my top reads so far this year. I can't recommend it highly enough.
I was wrong.
So many aspects to this book surprised, and even shocked me. I watched Grant from the sidelines, seeing how Tucker dealt with his and just kept thinking, "This guy's a total D-bag". Granted, not many things in this book actually changed my mind until about half way through. I started to see more of his pain, more of what he was going through, and I started to empathize with him.
Some parts of this were difficult to read...I had to flip quickly through some bits because I knew I couldn't handle them. But in reading it, I also realized that seeing everything was very important because this is how he became who he was.
Be prepared...because what you thought about Grant before?? You will change your mind. You will understand him more than you thought you could. And you will be rooting for him...
Grant finally has a chance to tell his story. After the first two books in the series, he was a hated character, but I wanted to give him a chance.
This book had me feeling so many emotions and at one time, I had no idea what I was feeling. His story is heartbreaking, as only that of a young man who has endured so much and lived with so much hate, can be.
You get to see what has been eating at him since his “father” died. You get to see why he has such a deep rooted hatred for Tucker and the lengths he is willing to go to “make him pay”. You get to see how one woman starts to change his views and how his iceberg of a heart begins to melt.
Your heart will be squeezed and your lungs deprived of air, but at the end, you will be so glad you got to meet Grant.
"There's no room in my life for pain. No room for pity."
Even though we went into the book knowing that Grant was the bad guy (as I had read the others in the series), I never could have imagined the lengths with which he went to seek his revenge. Getting into his head was terrifying at times, but also completely necessary. He could be so mean and ruthless and just plain arrogant. However, we also saw these vulnerabilities seep in, especially when it came to Cammie. She was the radiance to the darkness in this story; a little firecracker. I just wanted to squeeze her for the way that she would trust her gut and her heart over the words that anyone else spoke about Grant. The way that their relationship dynamic was written is such gold. She became that sliver of light for Grant who eventually seeped through every crack to allow him nowhere to hide. The way that he appreciated their friendship and grew from those feelings just flowed so effortlessly in the writing.
"No room to care who gets hurt in the crossfire."
Any reader of the Healing Hearts series could see that Grant had a story screaming to get out and it was important that he got his chance to tell it. The result ended up being Renee Dyer's best work to date. It was so much fun to watch the journey to redemption of someone we had previously hated. His character took us on an emotional roller coaster from beginning to end. The reader goes through periods of happiness, of shock, and of complete sadness for the shell of a man that he was at points in his life. Even through all the negative things that he had put others through, you can't help but adore the man who only wants to be loved - even if he doesn't realize it.
"I didn't ask for this fight."
I love to see a good villain novel, and Beneath His Darkness was just that. It's the story of one man's truth, both the good and the bad. It was Grant learning how to love and discovering just what that word meant. I also love when you can see author growth from each sequential book and Renee Dyer has, without a doubt, shown that. Even though I had to slightly push my comfort zone at times with Beneath His Darkness, I reveled in every moment. I'm definitely looking forward to what else Renee Dyer can do!
