Everything he didn’t know he wanted, and now couldn’t live without…

Paramedic and mountain rescuer Stratford ‘Ford’ Wallace fell hard and fast for pro-snowboarder, Reef Reid. For a ‘straight’ guy, falling in love with a dude was not what he expected, but his explosive attraction to Reef is undeniable. Neither of them have uttered those three little words yet, but Ford knows

White Noise by Ann Grech

This is the continuation of Ford and Reef’s book and I’m so in love with them. It was like returning home to greet some friends. This book carries on from the first book Whiteout where they find each other. This book focuses on their relationship, and building a life together.

In this book they face the challenges of telling the people in their lives about what they mean to each other. There are some pretty surprising reactions but not all the reactions go the way they wan

As much as I liked Ford and Reef in the first book and quickly bought this one as soon as I'd finished it, this book didn't quite pull me in in the same way. It started to feel repetitive, with the same word choices over and over. I found myself skimming at times, which is never a good sign. I will more than likely read the next book in the series when it comes out, but I expect a fair amount of eye rolling will be involved.

So, in this Reef and Ford are still as sexy as ever, both are finally comfortable with their sexualities, but they now feel the time is right to let their families know......
Yet again this had some emotional moments, and a few times i wanted to climb in the book and beat a certain person around the head !!
I also wanted to hug both the guys for what they have to put up with and can't wait for the next installment....

This was my first Ann Gresh book, and thoroughly enjoyed it. I am looking forward to reading the second book and eagerly await its release.

This is the continuation of Reef and Ford's love story and I have to say that after reading this one Ann you brought your A game with this one. After reading Whiteout I was dying to see where Reef and Ford would end up. I wanted to know if these two could weather the storm so to speak. Just like in heterosexual relationships you have your ups and down so I was really interested to see what would happen between these two because being out and gay in a relationship can be hard on each other.

Ann Grech continues her “Unexpected” series with White Noise. In book two we’re treated to an opening with Ford, who is making his way to meet up with Reef in Fernie, while Reef starts his pre-season training. When he gets there, however, there is some unexpected tension, which, when explained, results in some very “risky business” between the two.

If you’ve not read Whiteout what are you waiting for? Although Grech does a wonderful job of catching up any new reader, you definitely want to enjoy

After a few weeks apart, Ford takes on a demotion to be with the man he loves.
Although the three little words haven’t been said yet.

In this part of their journey, they come out to their parents.

Reef is up first and telling Momma Bear and Coach is putting the pressure on himself.
Momma Bear is caring as always, but Coach takes it harder and Reef has to give him time.
That night Ford nearly walks out on him but couldn’t abandon him when so many other people in his life already have.

Oh my goodness I am so glad I have all 3 books to read at once because I love them so much i can only taking a quick break to leave a review and then I'm jumping into the final book.

I rated White Noise more than White Out which I thought was really good I just found this one even better. The boys have a great combination of sweetness and manliness. They are funny and sensitive and there are time I just want to hug them both. Their chemistry in the bedroom is off the charts and super steamy and h

liked the continuation of Ford and Reef's story of their love. meeting the parents, acceptance and non-acceptance. I continued to grow and get to know a bit more about each man, what has made them who they are both in a positive way and also in an annoying negative way. the author is developing the series well and one that i will continue to follow

Not too bad however I was hoping book two would have progressed more it still seems like a prequel to an actual story. Also there were so many references back to book one the story line didn't progress much at all. Book two ended the same way as book one. Only meeting parents on that not a star removed. Let's get going here!!

Another great book, I'm loving this series. Ann Grech again hands us a beautiful romance.

What Reef and Ford started in New Zealand has heated up further. They are in Canada while Reef prepares for to return to the snowboarding circuit. They are serious about each other and it's time to meet each other's parents. The reactions had me in tears.

This is the second book in the Unexpected Series by Ann Grech ,and I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed this sweet story. Ann Grech has given us a another lovely story ,that just sucks us in and keeps us there from start to finish and then leaves us wanting more from this author. This story is just like the first one ,but it's not really cliffy. This whole story will make you feel the love these two really have for each other ,but like every relationships their have they up and downs too. Reef i ...more

I absolutely loved this one. After the first book, Whiteout, I was really looking forward to more of Reef and Ford's story to see what direction these two would be heading in.
Reef is a professional snowboarder who trains constantly while Ford is a ski rescue worker. Their jobs do keep them away from each other quite a bit, so I was curious to see how much drama or angst that was going to cause. What I found was a story where the two main characters were a pleasure to get to know better.

Ford and Reef are once again back in our hearts. This time they are to be found in Canada, where Reef is in training for the World Championships. Ford has left New Zealand and travelled overseas to where the man he loves, but has yet to admit it. What will happen once they are back together again?
Will their families accept them for the men that they are?

The love these two men share for each other is the driving force behind this story. The two totally diff

I was lucky enough to be gifted a copy of this book by the author and I'm glad she did.
Having read and enjoyed the first book,White Out, I was really looking forward to this one.

When we last left off, Reef and Ford decided to pursue a relationship. Ford followed him to his training camp, securing a job in the process. Things were definitely great between them. They both decided to inform their respective families about the new relationship and it didn't go well. I was surprised about some of t

I decided to read this book after reading book one Whiteout, I didnt read the blurb so expected it to be a story about another couple - how delighted I was to find out this was Reef and Fords continuing relationship.

The book starts with Reef deep in training and Ford going out to join him, the heat between them is as hot, if not hotter than book one.

They have reached a stage where things are great between them and its time to come out a little more, to the people closer to them. I had the feelin

Reef and Ford, their continuing love story has its highs and lows ..

The guys together are so romantic and oh so sexy !

When apart from each other they hurt as being together is what they need.

Its surprising that neither has been with a guy before but its who they feel right with comfortable and at home.

They know themselves that they are meant for each other but will obstacles get between them?

They come out to their parents and you know why Ford

This series just gets better and better. Ann really knocked this out of the park. It goes from making you ugly cry, to needing a change if panties, to laughing. What more could you ask for in a book?

In this book, we watch Reef and Ford's relationship continue to unfold and grow stronger every day. They will meet each others parents and those meetings don't go as planned. I won't say what happens because that would be giving a big part of this story away. Just know it will not be what you think.

Another terrific book in this series!
Continuing their relationship Reef and Ford meet up in Canada.
Meeting the parents on both sides is the next hurdle.
This book has just about everything- from moments of high anxiety to episodes of laugh out loud humour. In between are times of confusion and adrenaline pumping excitement.
The first third was a little slow but the pace definitely picks up from then on.
I really like the real life reactions in the story and Ann's contrast of parents is brilliant.

I really loved the continuation of Reef and Ford’s story, I fell in love with this paring during Whiteout and have been rooting for them from the get go. These two just get each other, they understand the others passion for their jobs and for their sports. In this book Reef and Ford must face more Drama and heartache with dramatic happenings on the slopes and in the clubhouse. They also face the hard tasks of introducing the other to their parents, this does not go well at all and not everyone i ...more

Awesome. As great as book 1, maybe even better because we see Reef and Ford in action, more in action. :3 <3 The chemistry is still existing, still buring hot. But also their deep emotions are palpable on every page.
You feel they are connected, those both character are a pair who complete each other.

I wouldn't have expected a 3rd book because I think everything is told but... I'm so looking forward to the next book Whitewash

WOW!!! I absolutely adored this book. The chemistry between both Ford and Reef was still there and their united front as a couple made me swoon. One of the things I love about these 2 characters is that despite there being drama around them it doesn't affect them. The love they share shines brightly through the pages and its a welcome change to other books I have read in this genre. Ann really made me feel the emotions but it also bought home so

A fantastic second book in this series!
Ford and Reef pick up where they left off in White Out but this time the setting is Canada.
There are more characters introduced and boy are some a complete waste of oxygen! Ann describes them extremely well.
I laughed aloud, I felt fear and excitement but mainly I felt the story was very real!

Really enjoyable book, I loved Ford & Reef in Whiteout and this was no different. This is only the 2nd book from Ann that I've read and I love her writing style so easy to read with a flowing story.

Reef & Ford are so right together the chemistry is off the charts HOT, but wow Fords parents are complete A holes! I'm looking forward to the next installment.

“He'd never experienced the gift of love like Reef's before. His parents' affections were flawed, conditional on Ford meeting their expectations. But Reef's was just there, solid and all-pervading like a sentinel watching over him, grounding Ford and yet lifting him up at the same time. For the first time he was actually beginning to believe he was worthy of that love. Hearing Momma Bear's words, seeing how Reef never let him go when Ford need him most was like the glue he'd needed to mend the shaken foundations of his love for himself.” 0 likes
