OhMyGod! *Hand over Heart*


This book stole my heart, ran away with it and cuddled it. Hanna’s story is sweet, but also heart wrenching, and so very unforgettable.

This is the kind of book that touches my heart~its sweet, it’s loving and it’s kind.

The love affair is LGBT and it’s not all rainbows and unicorns. Because life happens and it’s not so kind all the time. There is no insta-love per se, it is an ever so soft slow build that splendidly tugs at the heart~you will find noooooo angst, just

Audiobooks are extremely subjective. When you read a book yourself, you have your own idea of how the character sounds, but when you have an audiobook, the will of the narrator is forced upon you. This can be hit or miss, and I have really visceral reactions to some narrators. A few narrators have made books that might have been mediocre into absolutely fabulous reads. I have also had the opposite experience. This is one of those.

I kept trying to place the age of the narrator of thi
With this story, Mr. Grey shows us that we can have a touching, beautiful story without resorting to unnecessary angst created by damaged characters or seeing a boyfriend giving a blow job to a sworn enemy. Neither do we have to have fluffy story with i-love-u being said on every other pages.

There's no bad guy in this novel. No evil, homophobic father or clergyman. Yes, the main characters are not necessarily ordinary persons, being a rich painter and a former singing star, but the story itself

Wonderful! So emotional and heart breaking. I enjoyed it so much, despite the fact that it made me cry countless of times.

I love the stories where the romance builds slowly. The outcome is really more anticipated.

Ken,a gifted painter, after recently moving, learns that his adopted daughter Hannah suffers from cancer. His boyfriend decides to break up with him, and he's left to endure all these situations alone. He feels hopeless and devastated, but when his neighbour Patrick shows up and makes h

Lubeless sex. Ouch.
Other than that, it was a very sweet story. Very, very sweet.
This was definitely not the story I was expecting after reading the summary. The story that I read was a beautiful and romantic story between two men, one who has suffered a tragic accident and is trying to learn to live again and one who is trying to hold on to what is most precious in his life. I really thought that this would be a book full of angst and pull at the heart string moments, and while there are moments that are sad, there is so much hope and love in this story that you are just ca ...more

I'm going to dissect the first paragraph of this novel to show how poorly it's written, and why no publisher should have let it seen the light of day. Don't think I'm fussing over one or two sentences. The first paragraph represents the novels uniform flaws. And they get worse. Horrible sentence construction and prose compact the terrible plotting and grammatical issues. Not one part of this novel showcased fine writing. The novel is plagued with so many issues on so many levels, I can only tack ...more
This is a really sweet romance with fabulous characters and an interesting story line. What makes this story special is it's "realness". The love story and drama are not over-the-top, rather it is real men, facing real issues and real heartbreak and coming out the end in one piece. It is not easy, as the story has elements of tragedy, illness, heartbreak and sadness. But it is how Ken and Patrick face the world that is inspirational (little Hanna should also get a mention here!)

Sometimes a book comes along that will touch you in ways not expected. This is one of those for me. I have read Andrew Grey's books before. I enjoyed them. This one stands out. I am normally not big on books that are overly angsty. I don't mind an occasional sad scene if it furthers the story but I do not care to be overwhelmed by them. This book is different. I was completely invested from the very first page of the prologue until THE END.

Sometimes all I need is to be able to sit back and enjoying a book that brings calm and heart-warming. This is one of the books I was lucky to find. I read about Mr. Grey’s books when searching for M/M romance, browsing for them and decided that this one was going to be the first from Mr. Grey I would read. Just read the blurb and see the cover, isn’t it beautiful? :)

Every once in a while a book comes long that gets high marks from all my Goodreads friends, but then falls flat for me. This was one of those books :( It was a very sweet and very emotional book, but overall it just didn't do it for me. It happens. Won't stop me from reading Andrew Grey again. Moving on... ...more

I love Andrew Grey. I do, but this one was a bit of a conundrum for me. This story really focuses around Ken and his adopted daughter Hanna and her illness. Ken is a famous artist and currently involved with Mark He decides to relocate to give his six year old daughter a more rural environment--a home town feel. Once there, Hanna gets sick and it is soon discovered she has Leukemia and so begins the nightmare of countless treatments that leave Hanna in such a weakened condition that it is appare ...more

I must begin with a tissue warning, be sure they are handy, you will need one or ten! Also, don't start this book and expect to be able to sit it down, it's damn near impossible.

How do you convey the most basic feelings and emotions to the person you love, when you have no voice to speak them.

Ken Brighton's world is turned upside down when he learns his young daughter, Hannah, has cancer. To make matters worse his already strained relationship with his partner Mark is stretched even thinner as
There was everything I expect from Andrew Grey... tender and sweet romance with strong sense of family and friends.

A beautiful love story.

I'm torn on rating this book. The emotive part of me wants to rate it 5, the rational part of me is more like 3, so I guess I end with a 4. I know that if I wasn't in the mood for an emotional story that purposely plucks at the heartstrings I would have been less sympathetic in my rating. Usually, I feel resentment when an author is manipulative, but the way it was done--the care, the subtlety of the angst made me less angry.

The story itself is both sad and wondrous, sor

An excellent Andrew Grey novel. I'm not a fan of angst, but I loved the story line with Hannah and her illness. The romance had a very nice, slow arc and lots of emotion and heat. Definitely 5 stars. ...more

As much as I love stories with mysterious plots, overpoweringly evil bad guys, and angsty drama all over the place, what a makes a story great, for me, is the characters involved. And that is why I love Andrew Grey’s stories so much: they are always about the men first, and the events second. This is not to say what happens or the secondary characters in Andrew’s stories are in any way unimportant. It is more that his focus is firmly on the main characters. The ‘Love is…’ series is a great examp ...more

This is one of those sad but feel good stories about facing and overcoming adversities. I was almost in tears from the very beginning when we meet Hanna, Ken’s daughter. She’s been sick and now is diagnosed with cancer. They had just moved to a new town when this happens and after the first round of treatment, Ken’s longtime boyfriend decides to dump him.

It was sad to see Hanna go through her stages of being a happy and active kid, and then revert to bei

*sigh* Have I mentioned how much I love adorable m/m stories? Because I really, really do. I can't get enough of them and I feel like I hit the jackpot when I stumble across one.

This book was very sweet. Ken was such a beautiful character to read. His love for his daughter was so heartwarming. But it was the mute Patrick that really stole my heart. His story is heartbreaking. He's silent, sensitive and completely made my heart melt with how thoughtful he is. All the stuff he did for Ken and Hann

This is such a cute Story by Andrew Grey. I've read it several times (along with the others in his Senses series), so I was happy to see it listed in audio. I was a little hesitant at first to see how the narrator would do since Patrick is Deaf and cant talk and I wasn't sure how that would come across in Audio. But I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by this narrator, he did a good job with the two MC's. ...more

This was a lovely story.
I do like that Hanna's illness wasn't just a backdrop. But, man, the thought of any child going through all that, is heartbreaking. I know it happens every day, which makes it even sadder.

Ken and Patrick gravitate towards each other, but don't just jump into a relationship out of the blue.
There is a friendship forged first...especially with Hanna.

Good story.
This is a tender romance between a painter and a former singer.

The heart of the story is the little girl who is fighting cancer.

The romance is sweet and slow building.

The aspects outside of the love story and the relationships with the daughter are a bit too sketched to make this a rich book but it is a lovely sweet read.
Okay, this story didn't speak to me. I didn't feel the connection between Ken and Patrick. For me they simply didn't click. And even this fast time frame for Ken's daughter Hanna, who spent a lot of her time in a hospital, wasn't realistic. I didn't enjoy this story. It's a boring bland story. ...more
