The attraction between Brent Berkheimer and Scott Spearman peels the wallpaper, but Brent is Scott’s boss, and they’re both too professional to go beyond flirting. Their priorities realign after Scott is badly injured in an accident that costs him his hearing, and Brent realizes what is truly important… he wants Scott.
Scott pushes Brent away at first, fearing a new romance will just add to his problems, but perhaps he will find unexpected strength and solace in Brent’s support as he struggles to communicate with the world in a new way.
Just as they decide the chance of a happy future together is worth the risk, Scott and Brent discover darker challenges in their way—including evidence that the “accident” Scott suffered may not have been so accidental

Andrew Grey never fails to deliver a sweet tale, add in Greg Tremblay and what more could you ask for. For me Andrew Grey’s characters are believable, they have all the normal worries and issues to overcome. Thee isn’t any melodrama, just people overcoming fears and obstacles with the help of friends and finding love along the way. Brent made me consider this because he lets his own insecurities rule over his feelings for Scott. It takes nearly losing Scott to spur him on. Even then some of those insecurities threaten their relationship. But Brent comes to see the reality of his fears. Scott is strong and with Brent’s support learns to adjust to his new world. The turn of events around the ‘accident’ was a good twist in the story.
I noticed in the introduction it is ‘performed by Grey Tremblay’ performed is much more apt description than narrated by. It raises the book to a whole new level. There is a lot of emotion in this story which Greg enhances in such a way that I couldn’t help but empathise with the characters. A great story draws you in and great performances bring you into the heart of the story.
