The opening scenes pulled me right in. I've read several other books featuring blind protagonists, but this one made me look at things using my other senses like Howard did. My heart was also involved a lot. I wanted to punch his former boyfriend. What a dirt bag! What a truly terrifying experience he had to endure because of that jerk. Then our hero comes along. Big strong compassionate with a rescue chariot (even if he didn't drive him anywhere). Gordon gave him a safe place to be until his friends came along. His friends from the first book were great. He could count on them for whatever he needed whether he asked for the assistance or not.
What I got out of this story is that independence comes with a price. Are you prepared to pay it? And sometimes independence could be an illusion. Howard may have been living alone but he was still a prisoner of his blindness. He had to learn to accept that help from others needn't come with conditions. That some people truly wanted to do what made his life easier.
There was so much happening in this second book in the series. Many of the things I enjoy reading about: overcoming cold feet, guide dog, great friends, crummy ex-, caring siblings, making your own family, finding your inner courage, dealing with profound grief, making the right choice after some questionable choices in your past, and not giving up after life gives you some hard knocks. I really look forward to reading the third in the Senses series.
This really is a sweet love story. Howard is a very strong, independent blind man, he fights so hard for his freedom and independence. Gordy comes in to his life when he is stuck on the side of the road, abandoned by his boyfriend. Drama happens, they fall in love, more drama happens, they end up creating a life together with Howard's niece and we assume they live happily ever after.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with this story. I liked it a lot, I really did. There were some parts that were a bit predictable, but that's ok. The writing was good, the characters were well developed and wonderful, the sex was sweet and hot, it was a very good book. Just wish I hadn't read some incredible books about a very similar character just before I read it....
Howard, blind since birth, uses his hands to replace his lack of eyesight. A trait that Gordy, Howard's new boyfriend, can more than appreciate. This is a book that shows a side of blindness that few understand but all should appreciate. Like most of Andrew Grey's books, it is not just a book about gay men but one with a deep message that reaches the heart of most readers. In this story, he tells how Howard handles being gay while coming to terms with being blind and independent. A perceptive story in his Senses series, Love comes in Darkness ranges from humor to in-depth information on the subject of blindness.
Above all, Grey emphasizes that just because you are blind does not mean you cannot have a normal life.
