Review & Release Blitz for Get a Grip by M.E. Carter
First, can I get a hallelujah for a heroine that is so incredibly real that I could actually see myself as her??!! Please?? Thank you.
I haven't said much about this book to my peers or even in ME's group because it hits so close to home for me. It's brought up some issues I have been dealing with for 2 years since my own divorce. Those insecurities Elena feels throughout the book so many of us want to roll out eyes at? They are real people. Regardless of how your ex treated you, when you get divorced, there is always a part of you that wonders why. Wonders what you could have done differently to make it work. Wonder had you been just a bit skinnier if things would have been different. IT SUCKS!! There were times I wanted to shake Elena and make her see how beautiful she was. Make her realize she was worth it but when I finished I wondered why I didn't have those same thoughts about myself. Because you know what, just like Elena, I am worth it. Just because it didn't work out with someone doesn't mean I am broken, just like Elena wasn't broken no matter what her ex told her.
And where in the world can I find a Greg? ME, when you find your Greg can you find me one? I'll do the same if I find my Greg first. We are in this together. He's the guy we all dream about and few who are lucky to actually find. He's sweet, attentative, and is a great dad to his own daughter. Of course perfection doesn't really exist and we find Greg has his own issues he is dealing with.
Carter, a huge thank you for writing about divorce in such a raw and real way for the second time around. Two times with two different endings but so real in their own ways. It shows that you understand exactly what some of are going through ourselves. Now, the second book better get itself together because I can't deal with that ending. All that hope you gave use throughout this book was squashed. I am not thanking you for that. Misty's GR Link
