Andrew Grey is one of my favorite authors. His book are a must buy for me because they make me feel all kinds of emotions when I read them. There is something about the way he connects us with his characters and brings us into their lives that really resonate with me.

Love Means Courage is a difficult book to review. I don't want to give much away about it so I've decided to just relate my feelings about this wonderful book without getting too much into the storyline.

Love Means Courage is actually the prequel to Love Means No Shame. I read Love Means No Shame first, because it's actually the first book in this series. Knowing what happens to Len and Cliff years down the line left me feeling bittersweet and melancholy throughout this book. I'm not saying it took away my enjoyment of reading their love story, but it definitely made an impact on my feelings toward Len and Cliff, and how much I enjoyed their story.

I can't recommend both Love Means No Shame and Love Means Courage enough. I do think they needed to be read in the order Mr. Grey intended, so don't cheat and try to read this one first!

There were several times throughout the book I found myself tearing up and cheering Cliff and Len on. I loved them. The connection they have with one another and the determination they have to be together and build a stable and happy family with each other and young Geoff was wonderful; despite the obstacles in their path and the things they had to overcome made me love them that much more.

I loved this book in general and I look forward to reading many more stories written by Mr. Grey in the future.

So I am going to cry? hmmm. Ivan likes to be happy and perky not sad and weepy. Will have to think upon this one.

Wait, did I just see Eyre say she bought the books. Weren't you on a self-imposed no book buying thingy?

Andrew Grey Thank you all so much. I can't tell you how happy I am that you love the books. And Yes!!! there is another. I just submitted Love Means... No Boundaries and it's been contracted, so it should be out early next year.
