After a roadside bomb ends his military career Brandon McCollugh returns to his hometown and the comfort of his mother's house. Accompanying her to church one Sunday he meets Don, the Pastor's handsome nephew. The two men quickly form a friendship that over time becomes much more.

Lift Your Voice is a well-written story with protagonists that were interesting and likable. I especially liked the character of Brandon. He's a career military man who suddenly faces an uncertain future but ne

I really, REALLY loved this story. I think it's because I identified with both Brandon and Don. I was put in a wheelchair and given a cane after an accident with a weapon ended my military career and I understood Brandon's fight to return to a life as normal as he could make it. The desire to still be useful, to not be pitied, but to still have people show compassion, most of all, that desire, that NEED to find someone who will love you in spite of your physical limitations. As far as Don, I ...more

While lacking of emotional conflict -- the relationship is pretty smooth due to accepting adults (a mother in Bran's case and an uncle in Don's) and seems welcoming townspeople; Bran and Don do not really show internal conflict as well, even if T.A. Chase clues in on Bran's PTSD or worry of his scar/stump or Don being a virgin and a bit shy. It doesn't really show, the boys are (in my opinion) going into their relationship pretty easy.

BUT, I think both characters are wonderful. I can ea

3.5 stars. This was a perfectly good story, and I liked it, but it somehow came across as more amateurish than I expect from TA Chase. I usually like her books, and I liked this one, but it wasn't up to the standard I've come to expect of her.

I can't point to exactly what gave me that impression, something to do with some of the word choices, I think. What was revealed, when, and how. Or something like that. That narrows it down, right? ;)

I just know that several times I found myself rolling my

Very sweet and heartwarming story! I loved it :)
Both Brandon and Danald are really strong, brave and I loved how perfectly they fit together.

Lift Your Voice is maybe a too optimistic novella, very much about good feelings and pink glasses perspective, but it’s also a nice and comfortable story that warms your heart.

It’s about two men, with different, tragic experiences in their past, but both of them managed to make a new life, and now they are ready to love. Brandon is a former soldier who had his leg amputated after he was involved in a bomb explosion in Iraq, and with the loss of his leg he lost also his plans for his future. Bra

This story is heartwarming and pretty much conflict free. It’s the type of book to read when you need a pick-me-up or something that leaves you feeling warm and fuzzy. I love reading about characters who have struggled in life but ultimately find that someone who makes them feel special and cherished no matter what. You won’t go wrong reading about Don and Brandon’s story!

The first word that pops into my mind after reading this book is nice. It was a nice story and the characters were nice. I liked it but I felt as if there was just a little something missing. There were also a couple of places where it seemed like the scene skipped a bit. Otherwise, it was a sweet story, no big conflicts or controversies involved.

This story has 2 MC's with quite a bit of baggage. Bran is recovering from a roadside bomb taking his leg and PTSD, and Don was kicked out of his family for being gay.
I really wanted to love this story, because hey,I love baggage! :)
I liked it, but didn't love it!
It was just a bit too good to be true!

Sometimes I love to read stories in which two characters that have difficulties in life actually find love and happiness. This is one of those times that it just made me feel like I cuddled into a warm blanket. Short, sweet, happy read.

I am so thankful that TA Chase chose to become a writer. Books like this one, sweet and sexy, smart and strong--they just need to be written. Bravo TA.

A short"ish" story that was sweet, hot and satisfying. The perfect read before bedtime.

There was some insta-love going on, but I kind of liked it!

This was just too sweet and schmaltzy for my taste. Sure this is a romance novel, but a little more depth would have been nice

Overall I enjoyed this book, I think really, my only issue with it was it was too short to deal properly with the issues introduced.

There is beauty in every kind of love, so why not live a life without boundaries? Experiencing everything the world offers fascinates me and writing about the things that make each of us unique is how I share those insights. I live in the Midwest with a wonderful partner of thirteen years. When not writing, I’m watching movies, reading and living life to the fullest.
