Blurb: 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.
Review: We met Dan and Connor in book 4. They now have three kids with various special needs, including Janey who is deaf. When Garrett ends up stranded at their farm, his ability to sign is not seen as a handicap, but a boon. Dan quickly engages him to working on the farm with Connor planting trees and working in the woodshop.
Wilson is immediately attracted to the younger, but very mature man who ends up sleeping in the bedroom across from him, but he’s been burned in the past and is wary of another work-place romance.
When Wilson’s jerk of a brother ends up causing everyone on the farm a lot of trouble, Wilson and Garrett grow very close.
It’s not a smooth ride, but they move steadily toward a forever HEA.
I’ve always loved this series by Andrew Grey. He must do extensive research, and it shows. I loved the way Garrett “brags” about his talents as a deaf guy in bed, citing his ability to listen to his lover’s body rather than his words.
Wilson was a very sweet MC who cares deeply for the kids and is able to see Garrett for the man and not his deafness.
I really enjoyed this installment and highly recommend it and the series.
Overall Impression: I loved it
