A Hearts Entwined Novel
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.
A lovely addition to this new series! This standalone story features Brent and Scott (from Heart Unseen).
For 2 years, Brent has held off acting on his feelings for a younger Scott. Now 20 years old, Scott has all but given up on something happening between him and Brent, when he is badly injured in an accident. Brent realises that he has to do something about his feelings or he’ll lose Scott.
Both men are a little broken – Brent from a past personal tragedy and Scott, more recently, from becoming deaf due to the accident. I really liked how Scott’s disability was presented – there is no easy way to handle suddenly becoming deaf. Andrew Grey showed that it takes a lot of work to communicate and be understood in a world that relies on sound.
The romance between the 2 MC’s was not without some bumps, but not insurmountable. As an added bonus, there is a bit of a mystery as to who caused Scott’s accident and why – it added a nice twist to this really good romance. The next mystery is whether Dean (the 3rd friend) will get his act together and find love ☺
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to the next in the series!
