What does love sound like? If you hear it, will you heed its call?
Police officer Jordan Waters is recovering from a shooting by moving to a new apartment in a new town and taking a new job. In other words, he’s lonely. His first instinct is to relieve his anxiety through uncomplicated sex—until he meets a man so far out of his league and experience that he stumbles for the first time.
Police volunteer Sebastian Sumner may be deaf, but his spirit, openness, and sense of humor give him the strength to get through anything—even the emotional defenses of Jordan Waters. But it’s his own family history that poses the biggest challenge. Can he learn to trust Jordan with his heart, or will his upbringing blind him to the sounds of love?
I wasn’t sure what to think about a book with a main character who couldn’t hear because I didn’t know how the author would handle the characterization. This author did it very, well indeed, she either knows someone who is deaf or studied the ailment (I won’t call it a disability; I have a friend that would kick my butt if I did.).
Sebastian and Jordan make such an incredibly adorable couple and that added with a fairly interesting sub-plot about Jordan’s police work which involves Sebastian who works in a clerical position with the police department. Then you have their brothers who join in the fun mid-way through the book which ads a bit more humor to the story than was already there.
It’s a good story with some mild to moderate sex and a lot of solid making out and heated romance, more than enough to please anyone’s need for excitement and love from their e-reader.
