@VaughnAsher #YouAreCaredFor So the movie star says. But his idea of cared for isn't the same as mine. Obviously a #Douche.
@FilthyBlueBird #BehindTheScenesIsMyScene The Blue Bird has trust issues. And tantrum issues. And commitment issues.
@FilthyBlueBird #YouAreMine and I won't let you forget it.
@VaughnAsher #YouMustShitUnicorns that's how delusional your fairy tale is. #GetAGripOnReality I'm outtie.
@FilthyBlueBird You're an #Innie #Sweetheart :) My tongue licked all your #CuteLittleButtons.
Why is he so damn sexy? How will I ever get out from under Asher's thumb if I can't stop thinking about his tongue on my buttons? #HottiesNeedToPlayFair
Block has everything a contemporary romance should have, there’s some mystery, lots of hotness, a character who has a well hidden secret and a movie star who falls in love for the first time.
Well, so far, for each new book in the Social Media series, Ms. Huss has been able to up the ante and get me more and more involved with the characters. Block brings a lot more to Grace especially. It is so easy to understand both her obsession with Vaughn, and her confusion because he seems to be just as obsessed with her. Also, the things about Vaughn that bothered me a little in Follow are all forgotten now. He has shown me a side of himself that makes me think that part of his tough BDSM act is just that – an act. A way to keep people at arm’s length through contracts and legal-language. As if it’s a way for him to protect himself from unbidden scrutiny, since he’s always lived in the spotlight.
Block also shows how important it is to Grace to do a good job at her workplace and how she needs to feel independent. As Vaughn slowly gets under her skin, though, she isn’t sure what to feel. Between annoyed and happy, flattered and a little scared, Vaughn just might be a little too much for her. And the way Vaughn is willing to really do anything to make sure Grace will be there (at least for as long as he wants her) tells me that he isn’t as arrogant as I first thought he was.
As usual, Grace and Vaughn each have their chapters, and being in their heads is awesome. The writing is very good, it’s impossible not to be completely drawn into the characters, their universe, their complex back-stories and the fast-paced plot. If you haven’t started Social Media yet, I only have one question for you: What are you waiting for?
I just have to trust in him. Have faith. That when he’s finally done with me, he’ll toss me aside gently and I will walk away with enough pride to keep my head up and my self-worth intact.
This is my life. No matter how hard I try to be normal, no matter how far away I think I am, it’s never far enough. That traditional family I never had is just a dream. My life, for better or worse, is a string of side-show events that prohibits me from having a real relationship.
You lie to yourself, I think. You’re one long string of self-serving lies. I don’t know how you do it, or how you get so many girls to play along. But all your best intentions were nothing but really good deceptions.
