Love Means... No Shame
The characters are well drawn and easy to care about, especially the characters of Eli and Geoff. The prose is well crafted and the story pulls you in. This is an engaging story that quickly pulls you in and before you know it you're reading about characters that you truly care ...more

I think everyone who deals with predudice and fear should read this book. I think Andrew spells out LOVE in a poignant way. It was a book that meant a lot to me the first time I read it. The theme of "no shame" stupid out in a personal ...more
I read this after Love Means... Courage (the story of Geoff's dads Cliff and Len), that's why the death of Cliff at the beginning of this book had me especially sad.
So, here we got the story of Geoff and Eli. Geoff, who came back from Chicago (where he had worked as an accountant during the day, while he had spent his nights with meaningless one night stands) to take over the farm when his father died and Eli, a sweet, young and innocent Amish man. Two ...more
I just did not understand Geoff's treatment shown to Len?
I did not understand the why(s) of the slut'ness of Geoff's persona?
And, I do not recall the use of condum's?
And, why is this book so poorly edited, from DSP, where I pay top dollar for my books?

This book is about little Geoff all grown up. This book started out sad but it just shows you to waist no time and to love to the fullest every minute of every day.
Little Geoff finds the love of his life. I truly loved this story.
One morning he finds a toung Amsih man sleeping in the barn, Eli. Eli is on his rumspringa and Geoff offers him a job and a home. Over time the two fall in love.
I liked seeing Eli leaarning about the English and trying new things.
Geoff and Eli were good together and apart from some angst towards the end it was a good story.
3.5 stars here. A somewhat bland but likeable m/m romance. Geoff leaves Chicago to return to the family farm upon the death of his (gay) father. He falls for Elijah, a 20 year old Amish boy who is spending a year away from his community.
'If he were honest with himself, he really did like Eli... a lot. The way he looked in the saddle, the way he smiled, the way those eyes danced when he was ...more

What they have in common is their caring attitude. Geoff is much more experienced, but Eli's enthusiasm makes up for his lack ...more
After reading this one I finally know what happened, although I found it a little strange that in the bundle suddenly there was a gap of several years...
Actually the story how Geoff and Eli found each other was probably the best in the series so far, for me!

I'm looking forward to re reading the next book and seeing Geoff as a little boy again lol.
My one niggle was Frank and the way he believed the lies without hesitation but then back tracked imediately. That scene just never flowed as smoothly as the rest.
I think this is my favorite of the series, and conveniently the first (although I read it second). Order isn't vital to the stories, unless you want to be surprised by happy endings. So Geoff comes home after the death of his father and decides to stay and take over the family farm. Shortly after his arrival, Eli appears, 100% Amish and straight from the community. He's taking a year break to "diminish his rebel spirit."
Geoff and Eli have a very nice dynamic and are both sweet as sugar. ...more

Andrew Grey has a way of drawing the reader in,pulling on the heart strings while tap dancing on the emotions of one's soul. He does a fantastic job of delivering a great story while teaching some very important life lessons about learning to love yourself, as well as those who ...more

A virgin Amish boy meets a more seasoned city boy on the farm and they fall in love.
When the Amish boy discovers the city fellow was very sexually active he sadly pouts and the city fellow tells him it was just sex but with him it’s love making.
City boy then proceeds to have the Amish boy fuck him bareback.
Naively (pre barebacking) I was thinking what a great book for young gay kids to read.
Color me stupid.
Ah-young love, may it survive!

Geoff’s hand made small circles on his stomach.
"Elijah." Geoff rarely called him that, and he turned his head to look into Geoff’s eyes. "I don’t love you because you’re beautiful. You’re beautiful because I love you.”
