As a stunningly attractive man and the owner of a successful chain of auto repair garages, Trevor is used to attention, adoration, and getting what he wants. What he wants tends to be passionate, no-strings-attached flings with men he meets in clubs. He doesn’t expect anything different when he sets his sights on James. Imagine his surprise when the charm that normally brings men to their knees fails to impress. Trevor will need to drop the routine and connect with James on a meaningful level. He starts by offering to take James home, instead of James riding home with his intoxicated friend.

For James, losing his sight at a young age meant limited opportunities for social interaction. Spending most of his time working at a school for the blind has left him unfamiliar with Trevor’s world, but James has fought hard for his independence, and he knows what he wants. Right now, that means stepping outside his comfort zone and into Trevor’s heart.

Trevor is also open to exploring real love and commitment for a change, but before he can be the man James needs him to be, he’ll have to deal with the pain of his past.

 

Let me begin by saying that I was beyond excited to see another book from Mr. Grey that dealt with a differently abled MC. Andrew has such a way with showing the struggles and differences without going over the top and without lessening the reality. Yet, he makes the romance and couple perfect, logical, and fun all at the same time. And yes, he did it again!

Trevor shut down his heart years ago and only seeks one night stands. When he sees the most beautiful man across the room at a club, he heads over to do his usual flirt and pick up. Well, things don’t go quite as he planned when the man, James, is polite, but doesn’t take the bait. Trevor is a bit vain, though he doesn’t like to think of himself that way. But then, aren’t we all? He tries again, And things go from shot down, sorta, to complicated and dangerous fast.

James is blind. Completely thanks so a disorder that destroyed the nerves themselves between his eyes and his brain. He has no idea what he looks like, much less the hunky man that comes over, twice, to try to pick him up. The friend that brought him to the club is off having a good time, but that leaves James alone in a place that isn’t blind friendly, really.

But when an opportunity gives them the chance to get to know ones another, they find they are more than their past or their blindness.

Reading along as these two men grew together, learned to trust and love together, was such a wonderful treat. The details were engaging, the revisiting of past issues, hard but needed (and sadly, oh so real), and the HEA… wow. If you love romance, this is your book. If you enjoy stories where one of the characters is disabled, then this is a must read. And no worries, Andrew did his research! Oh, and the simmering heat … Trevor isn’t a bad boy for nothin’ lol … just sayin’. A full 5 drops and a thank you from the bottom of my heart for another delicious, differently abled MC romance! TY Andrew.

“You’re watching him again, aren’t you?” Brent asked, and Trevor nodded without even thinking about it. There was something about him that hit Trevor like a punch in the gut. James sat there in the midst of all the chaos and noise almost like none of it quite reached him. That was fascinating and incredibly attractive.

“We always want what we can’t have,” Brent said from near his shoulder.

“I know, but I keep wondering why I can’t look away from him. What is it about this guy that draws me to him?” Trevor had never experienced anything like this before. He’d known more men than he could count, and trying to remember them all took too much effort.

“Who knows why we’re attracted to one person over another?”

“I don’t get it. He’s just another guy.”

Brent shook his head and finished his drink, then set the empty glass on the table. “Maybe it’s time you admitted that there’s more to being a man than a cock and some balls. That there’s another organ that’s just as important.”

“When did you get so philosophical?” Trevor asked, honestly interested in the answer, but not getting one as Bobby and Dean returned.

“Is that the guy you were interested in?” Bobby pointed across the dance floor.

“Yeah. I talked to him for a few minutes.”

Bobby chuckled and leaned into Dean, whispering something in his ear, and they shared a laugh. Bobby turned to smile at Trevor. “You weren’t going to get anywhere with him with your smile and stunning good looks.”

“Why not?” Trevor demanded.

“He’s blind.” Bobby said the words so easily, and they hit Trevor in the gut. He watched James, and it made sense. The way he held his glass with both hands wrapped gently around it as if he’d lose it if he wasn’t touching it. How James had looked through him the entire time Trevor had been speaking to him because he couldn’t see and was just looking in his direction, probably to try to be polite. At least Trevor understood why none of his “charms” had worked.

Andrew grew up in western Michigan with a father who loved to tell stories and a mother who loved to read them. Since then he has lived throughout the country and traveled throughout the world. He has a master’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and works in information systems for a large corporation.

Andrew’s hobbies include collecting antiques, gardening, and leaving his dirty dishes anywhere but in the sink (particularly when writing)  He considers himself blessed with an accepting family, fantastic friends, and the world’s most supportive and loving partner. Andrew currently lives in beautiful, historic Carlisle, Pennsylvania.
