2.25 stars The story of when the two most boring men in the world... fall in love. I thought this was gonna be a 3 star like the first book in this series, Love Comes Silently. It was mostly in the 2.5 range for me, but by the end I just couldn't take the saccharine sweetness anymore and had to bump it a little further.

I'm not sure how much the narration played a role in my dislike. Definitely some, but not all. I've listened to books narrated by Max Lehnen before, I did recognize his voice and

The expression “throwaway child” is one of the most horrific descriptors in existence, at least in my opinion. Children deserve to be loved and accepted unconditionally, not “thrown away” like old furniture or other possessions. This fourth volume of the ‘Senses’ series is all about “throwaways”. The children, Lila and Jerry, come from an orphanage and are both physically challenged. Both main characters, Dan and Connor, were rejected by their parents when they were kids and have each chosen a d ...more

2.5 stars - Sticky sweet, with very little plot. Gave me sugar overload. This seals it, Andrew Grey and I are not compatible. With his fan base, I don't think he'll miss me. Wish him all the best.

Ugh. It's fine. But it comes off very "After School Special/On A Very Special Episode". It is soooo saccharine and felt like I was reading a moralistic lecture. There is ZERO subtlety. It also manages to be very banal. I swear nothing happens. There's no excitement. I don't need an epic disaster but SOMETHING should grab my interest. I was also bothered by how easily the orphanage just handed the MC a kid. There's enough of a backstory & history that it's not *that* objectionable but it stil ...more

My heart broke while reading this. Broke.

Kids in stories make me melt. Then when I see MEN with kids?! There's no way to keep the smile off my face when I see that. However, kids with disabilities make my heart burst. They have to be the strongest people ever. I often say that there should be a rule against children getting sick. It makes me so sad to see kids going through something so heartbreaking when they are so young and just trying to live life.

In High School I volunteered in the MR/DD

Narration 3 Stars

Overall 3.5 Stars

This is the fourth book in the Senses Series and one that is bound to pull on your heartstrings as it involves children who it seems nobody wants.

Connor is a carpenter and he knows firsthand how it feels not to be wanted by your family. He still wears his emotional scars, albeit buried, but when he does any work for the local children’s home they are brought to the forefront of his mind. He always tries to spend time

I am not a huge fan of books with children, but I am a fan of Andrew Grey, so I decided to give this one a go…and I am so glad I did. It was just the perfect combination of sweet and sorrow, joy and sadness. The many emotions that this story makes you feel is immense, but it ends on such a positive note that you close the book with a smile on your face and hope inside your heart.

Dan is a man who has it all: career, house, and wealth, but he is also a man who is still s

Why do I read any book by Andrew Grey. I should stop. Every time I end up cry big ugly tears. This time was no different. Why I even cried by the end of the second chapter. This book was so beautifully written that it made me read it twice. My favorite quote of the book was: “I know. I love you too.” Dan held him close without moving. “I know this is going to sound strange, but I like sitting and doing nothing with you.” Connor wasn’t sure what that meant. He looked at Dan with one raised eyebro ...more

I'm not sure anyone can break you heart with a book like Andrew Grey. Break your heart and then put it back together with so much love and care.
We start with a home for children nobody wants. Just that sentence... children nobody wants? Agh!
Conner is a carpenter and woodworking artist. He's doing some work at the home when he sees Dan return a little boy in a wheelchair. This child has MS and will never grow old but in Conner's mind he deserves all the happiness possible in the time he has left.

Ok...I have been a long time fan of Andrew Grey. I really liked the first in the senses series. However I need to get some insulin in me fast. Handicapped children, a butler, more saccharine than a Sweet & Low factory....does not a good novel make. Where is the Andrew Grey that wrote books that dealt with real life issues and weaved romance in them? This book is so formulaic, it isn't even funny. I think Mr Grey needs to re-read some of his older books. I am listening to 'Inside Out' on my I ...more

I love Andrew Grey and all his books so I liked the Dan and Connor's story too, but it not engaged me in deep way as others did. A bit flat, lacking of much magic, shine , warm...passion (do you remember Ken and Patrick's story?). Then, Love Comes Around is the second book where there are child with disease or handicap( true there was Hanna in the first too), very moving but ...I don't know ...it's confusing, because the subject of Senses series is very intense and serious but I thought was with ...more

2.5 stars - Although I found Conner and Dan's relationship a bit lacking (mostly due to the slight but repetitive drama caused by each man's childhood), I did manage to enjoy the story and the family vibe throughout. I also found the scenes with the kids quite touching, especially those with Jerry.

I skipped book 3 and went directly to this one, number 4.

I think I'm in a phase of my life when I don't want deep meaning, great hurdles or moments of personal revelations. I just want a story to progressively grow into a happy end. It soothes me that at least imaginary people in novels do get them.
And in that sense this series, no pun intended, delivers right on the spot.
The characters are nice, there's a feel of living family, the challenges of the outside world and society are barely touch

WOW!!!!!! What an incredible book. It was the first one of the Senses series I read by Andrew Grey and i loved it. You cry, you laugh, and you feel love. So many feelings in one book and the chemistry between Connor and Dan was impeccable. I highly recommend this book. It makes you feel many emotions which I have found rare in many novels. Worth the read.

Dan is a carrying person and is building a loving family. Conner doesn't feel worthy and yet is a caring person as well willing to do battle for another. As they come together come together they become a huge force for good.

A little too sweet and angst free even for me. Though both men suffered from doubt regarding their worth, the story really didn't have much in the way of complications, and I think that is why I didn't enjoy it as much as I would have hoped. I did love the addition of children to the story.

Full Review http://thebloggergirls.com/2014/11/28...

Dan Harrington is now a rich guy who wants to help kids who didn’t have a good life, kids who were “thrown away” like he was. He adopts a little girl and then later a little boy, both with disabilities and converts his house to accommodate their needs.
Connor O’Malley, who considers himself a “throw away”, volunteers his handyman/wood working skills at the Children’s Home where Dan’s kids were adopted from. Connor had a crush on Dan when they we

Note: This book was provided to me by the publisher through Hearts on Fire Reviews in exchange for an impartial review.

Another book in a wonderful series that brings attention to those among us who live with disabilities, yet show courage and strength on a daily basis as they not only live with them, but they put the disabilities on the back burner and live a full, enriching life despite them.

Love finally comes around to Connor, a carpenter and skilled woodworker, who is hired to fit out the

Dan and Connor have similar pasts and want the same things in life. Both abandoned in one form or another when they were younger, all they want in life is that family they never had. A sense of stability, to find someone to love, and be loved unconditionally in return. Dan now owns a very successful business which affords him financial stability and the opportunity to give a home to a couple of ‘throwaway children’ that no one else wants, much like he was as a child. Connor as well runs his own ...more

I have to give Mr. Grey a huge round of applause for this book for multiple reasons. After being in a reading slump for the past week or so, this book totally sparked my desire to start reading again. It was so well crafted, original, and just an overall great read that it has caused me to want to read again. So thank you so much for that Mr. Grey! But also, this book caused so many emotions to run through me while reading it because the story was so emotional, that you couldn’t help but feel w ...more

"Senses" is one of my favourite sires by Andrew Grey, but this isn’t your average story, not even for Mr. Grey! Connor is a handyman and an artist when it comes to wood and furniture. He was also a throwaway child—a fact he’s never gotten over completely. Dan is a business mogul with a huge heart, though most are never privileged enough to see it. When these two men meet, it’s anything but love at first site for Connor, who misinterprets what he sees when visiting the local orphanage.

So you like sweet family tales

This latest (I actually read & wrote my review in one of my green Steno note pad on 09-22-2015) Andrew Grey "Senses" installment is just that... sweet. Also a slow build up. And if you don't like a man referring to his nice backside as his butt, well you may want to skip this book. Despite enjoying it very much (and to be perfectly honest this was my second attempt at reading it) I still found lulls where I was tempted to put the book down again, but this time I

5 star review by Danielle

First let me start with saying this series is like a treasure of beautiful yet delicate subjects.

Told with such care and all through a different and unique angle.

This story feels like coming home, like a warm bath. There is so much love and tenderness there, so much bonding and family feeling,.

When we meet Dan and Connor they are the main characters to this story. The romance is theirs but still the true heroes of this story are Lila and Jerry. I dare you to read this st
