The Heart As He Hears It

Disclaimer MaleTAG

Love can slip through the smallest crack in the door.

While most of his friends have moved on to “real” careers, Jon Buchanan is content skating through life as a part-time waiter and gay porn star. Firmly single thanks to a previous relationship disaster, he focuses his spare time on Henry, a dear friend dying of cancer.

And with Henry’s happiness paramount, Jon is on a mission to help Henry meet his recently discovered grandson.

Isaac Gregory hasn’t set foot outside for the past year. He has everything he needs delivered, and his remaining family knows better than to visit. When a complete stranger shows up claiming to be his grandfather—with a distractingly handsome younger man in tow—his carefully structured routines are shaken.

Despite his instant attraction, Jon senses Isaac is too fragile for a relationship. Yet tentative friendship grows into genuine companionship. And when Henry’s health begins to fail, they realize Fate brought them together for a reason.

Warning: Product contains a neurotic porn star with body image issues, a virgin hero with severe agoraphobia, and a fluffy ball of gray cuteness you’ll want to take home and cuddle. Also contains references to past abuse some readers might find disturbing.addtogoodreads_zps55cd15da16Listening to Andrea LeeTAG

So I’ve read all three, in order but months plus apart and even though we’ve got characters that over lap,with this one especially you do not have to read in order. Probably book one and two would be a good idea but this one just pick up.

I enjoyed all three books, all for different reasons. They all center around these guys working or getting out of the porn industry, sure. But that is just one small facet of what is really going on in these books.

In this one we’ve two damaged MC’s. But abused by people who were supposed to have loved them.

Isaac, grew up in an abusive home. His father would get drunk and hit him and his mother, until one day the father is gone, the mother is gone and the effects of the childhood is too much. He is a self proclaimed recluse. With growing health issues.

Jon on the other hand was in a mentally abusive relationship. For years his boyfriend would tell him how fat he was, how ugly. Until he ended up in the hospital.

Now Jon goes to the other extreme, eats really healthy, works out almost too much.

So when these two unlikely pair strict up a friendship it’s actually good, they balance each other. Now if they can get everyone around them to fall into line. Ex-boyfriends, Aunts, grandfathers and such.

The slow build was key to the healing for both parties, even if one is a porn star. That was not lost in this story.
