Welcome to the Loving Grace blog blitz and giveaway, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!


loving grace Title: Loving Grace  
Author: April Smith  
Publisher: Ambassador International  
Release Date: March 20, 2018  
Genre: Christian Fiction, Young Adult Romance

Grace Summer lands herself in a melon load of trouble when she becomes torn between the boy of her dreams and the boy almost next door.

As the newly crowned Watermelon Queen, she is thrust into the spotlight, meets the dreamy Warren Hartley, and continues trying to get over an accident that rocked her world. Mix in working with Beau Baron who Grace happens to fight with just about as much as breathing and the metaphorical sparks fly.

Like most things in life, Grace must learn to take the good with the bad. While the good is the handsome and fun Warren Hartley, the bad is Beau Baron—or at least being around his annoying and rude self way more than she would like. For Beau, Grace is nothing more than aggravating and an irritating reminder from the night of the accident.

Tensions soar as Grace and Beau fight to love themselves and maybe, just maybe, each other.


I catch him up on my day and the game plan for the next one. We hang up when Beau hollers that the pizza’s here. I quickly throw my hair up in a topknot and change into leggings and a sweatshirt. I’m too hungry to take the time to do anything more. It looks like Beau had the same idea. He’s in sweats and a faded t-shirt. He’s got the pizza box open on the coffee table and the first slice in his mouth. I plop down on the other end of the sofa and unceremoniously dig in. 

"This almost feels like old times." I sigh a little, remembering what we used to be like when Luke was still here.
