Garrett Bowman is shocked that fate has brought him to a family who can sign. He’s spent much of his life on the outside looking in, even within his biological family, and to be accepted and employed is more than he could have hoped for. With Connor, who’s included him in his family, Garrett has found a true friend, but with the distant Brit Wilson Haskins, Garrett may have found something more. In no time, Garrett gets under Wilson’s skin and finds his way into Wilson’s heart, and over shared turbulent family histories, Wilson and Garrett form a strong bond.
Wilson’s especially impressed with the way Garrett’s so helpful to Janey, Connor and Dan’s daughter, who is also deaf. When Wilson’s past shows up in the form of his brother Reggie, bringing unscrupulous people to whom Reggie owes money, life begins to unravel. These thugs don’t care how they get their money, what they have to do, or who they might hurt. Without the strength of love and the bonds of family and friends, Garrett and Wilson could pay the ultimate price.
There’s just something about this series that I can’t get enough of. Once again Grey was able to pull me out of a reading slump with this amazing story.
I really loved how Grey was able to write a story about a man with a disability, but it wasn’t all about his disability. There’s so much more to Garrett than that, and it was just great to get to know the man inside that he is. Wilson’s character was one that was equally well done. I loved how he was able to/willing to learn more about Garrett despite everything.
There is a a fair bit of suspense that does happen in this book, and I really enjoyed that part because it added more to the story than just a typical romance. It also helped to get me more into the story.
Overall, this was a great romance story with a side of suspense and drama that I would recommend to anyone who is looking for a new Grey book to read.
