As a reader who had the pleasure of reading Heartless, I was familiar with the main character Simon as he played a significant part in that book as well. While he wasn’t main focus, his words and behaviors shaped a lot of the decisions and actions of his brother Levi. And I will admit, at the end of Heartless, I did not like Simon. At all. I found his actions and interactions with Levi to be mean, sarcastic, and down right selfish at times. He was a bully. Then my eyes were opened within a few chapters of Love Him Free.
I won’t give spoilers. I won’t repeat the explanation of the book that the author has written. What I will say is that if you are looking for a book that will tug at your heartstrings, make you want to route for the underdog, and fall in love alongside of two beautifully written men, this is your book.
I cannot wait to see what is in store for the residents of Cherry Creek in the future. Yet another winner by a solid author.
Like in Iron and Works, readers get a sense of the Deaf community in "Love Him Free". Communication is key, particularly when one of the MCs is Deaf (Rocco), and the other MC (Simon) fortunately knows enough ASL to get by to help the other guy along.
I keep wondering what Simon's accent is--it factors into his character development in an important way. The relationship is magical. Simon is fragile, lacking in confidence trying to live with what was likely C-PTSD, as well as a host of other issues stemming from a less-than-stellar upbringing. Rocco is an insanely sexy adult film actor whose relationship with his agent and his translator fell apart when Rocco learns that his agent and translator were sleeping with each other.
I appreciate the delicacy that Lindsey treats mental health, and how she is deft and able to describe the Deaf community, the Hard of Hearing (HoH), and so on. (There were no Children of Deaf Adults - CoDA in this novel.)
I am already looking forward to the next novel in the series, having to do with Simon's little brother, Levi, and the man Levi would fall in love with--a young hotelier named James. Lindsey has drawn me in, yet again.
I received an ARC copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.
One problem I had with this book though is that it interconnected with other books. Which isn’t a problem if it’s a spin off from another series by the author. But this one had 3 characters that came from a book that this author wrote with 2 other authors. Then if you want to read about how Simon’s brother and his boyfriend got together you have to read a book from one of the other authors instead of the author you just read. What if I read one of the other books and the writing style is so different that the character I just read don’t seem the same anymore? There’s a good chance I won’t read the other books so it’s annoying. Levi is a main character and wasn’t some secondary person in the background.
I enjoy when different authors share a world. In this case, Kate Hawthorn wrote Levi's story, Heartless, where we were introduced to Simon and his crush on Rocco. This book fit seamlessly with that one, and we got to see the relationship between the brothers grow stronger, something they both needed. And we learned the reasons for Simon being rather difficult. He had some serious baggage. I'm so glad Rocco came along and fell in love with him. Rocco never tried to change Simon, which made me love Rocco even more. He just accepted him and helped him to shine. This was a wonderful story of a very sweet (and sexy) couple. I loved it!

There are few spelling errors which are my pet hate but here it actually it didn't distract from the story; for me it became part of story building and communication between the characters.
