Eloreen reviews Love Comes to Light (Senses 06) by Andrew Grey (Published by Dreamspinner Press, March 18, 2016, 206 pages)
This book was provided free of charge by the author for an honest review.
Why I read this book: This week’s theme is ‘Comfort Zone’ where each reviewer got to pick a book from an author they read for comfort. My pick is Andrew Grey. He’s always my go-to author when I want a nice easy read. You know, one that’s comfortable. 😉 I picked Loves Comes to Light because it’s the latest book in the Senses series that I haven’t read, and it’s a great series.
A Senses Series story
Artist Arik Bosler is terrified he might have lost his creative gift in the accident that left his hand badly burned. When he’s offered the chance to work with renowned artist Ken Brighton, Arik fears his injury will be too much to overcome.
He travels to Pleasanton to meet Ken, where he runs into the intimidating Reg Thompson. Reg, a biker who customizes motorcycles, is a big man with a heart of gold who was rejected by most of his family. Arik is initially afraid of Reg because of his size. However it’s Reg’s heart that warms Arik’s interest and gets him to look past the exterior to let down his guard.
But Arik soon realizes that certain members of Reg’s motorcycle club are into things he can’t have any part of. Reg can’t understand why Arik disappears until he learns Arik’s injury was the result of his father’s drug activity. Though neither Reg nor Arik wants anything to do with drugs, the new leadership of Reg’s club might have other ideas.
The senses series is one of my favorite ones as each book depicts a main character with some kind of permanent injury or disability. If you haven’t read the first five books, you should go read them as this book builds upon stories told there. While you are introduced to previous characters, and what they went through is briefly mentioned, it would be better to read the series in order.
Arik Bosler has a healed hand badly burned from his father’s drug activity. We see Arik meet up with Ken Brighton and his partner Patrick, and the journey Arik takes to find his artistic side. Between Patrick, a little girl named Bobbie Jo, and a few other secondary characters children from previous books, and of course, Reg, we see Arik grow towards his dreams again and let go of the fear that he could never create again. I enjoyed the journey that includes the families these friends of Ken and Patrick have created, and the descriptions are classic Andrew. While the romance was hot between Arik and Reg there was not as much sex as it seemed the focus was on the story line more than the romance between them. While the romance was there, and the couple of sex scenes depicted were great, I kept waiting for more sex. This is definitely a story of a journey first and foremost; so it worked, but I was looking for more romance and sex at the time. 🙂 It’s a great happily ever after story that you should read.
With this, I give Love Comes to Light 9.5 pots of gold.
