He is taken from the airport to the his cousin's memorial services (I dislike the word funeral too depressing of word. It is better to remember than...)
At the memorial services he meets Peter who offers to help him with his English... Luka agrees. There is an attraction between the two but it started with a kiss to ignite something more but Peter doesn't feel worthy of being loved... Reason is something that happened when he was younger but what he recalls isn't what he remembers... Luka finds someone that may help Peter but will Peter get the help that he needs?
The story was interesting and enjoyable story that will have you laughing at how well Andrew hit on the mishaps of a foreigner trying to decipher the English language...
As well as the compassionate way the main characters come together help one another out.
The story of Luka and Peter; a lyrical memoir of loss and recovery, of tragedy and redemption, is what we get in this latest book. I can't help but love a book that focuses on forgiveness and on the healing power of love. Because I believe in that sort of thing.
Peter Montgomery's good deed is to reach out to help the newly-immigrated Serbian scientist, Luka Krachek, who is reeling from the unexpected loss of the one blood relative he had in America. To ease Luka's transition to American life, Peter wants to help him learn English. But in reaching out to a man shellshocked by circumstance, Peter unwittingly opens a path to his own healing.
I was getting toward the end of this book the other night, and found myself irritated that I had to keep wiping my eyes...and then realized it was because I was just quietly weeping as the story reached its emotional climax. Hadn't even realized it, so caught up on the narrative.
Now the one cavil: I know Andrew's audience traditionally wants this, but I think there was more sex in this than was necessary. This is no longer blasphemy in the m/m world. Two of the intimate scenes were totally essential. The others felt liked gilding on a lily.
"One Good Deed" has two main characters: Peter, whose family has both shunned and exploited him because of an event that happened when he was only six, and Luka, a new Serbian immigrant with a doctorate in biochemistry (not quite sure, but he works in gene sequencing), a family who disowned him when they found out he was gay, and a beloved partner who died two years before he took off for the U. S.
Despite all that baggage, Peter and Luka manage to find each other and become whole and complete - together. There are obstacles, of course, like finding out what really happened when Peter was six, and the Serbian demanding that Luka returns because he carries so much of their science knowledge around in his head.
The obstacles are not huge, and there's no chance that they will escape a perfect Andrew Grey HEA, but it's the getting-there that counts, and nobody does that better than Mr. Grey.
There were moments when I laughed, more than a few had a tear in my eye, and the ending was just about perfect.
If you're looking for a good read with just the right amount (but not too much!) angst and hand-wringing, this is the book for you! I recommend it most highly.
In our land of the free there are those that take advantage of it in the wrong way, but Luka did not, and went about it the right and correct way and showed appreciation for it. His character had character and backbone. And like another man to man relationship he shows promise, but with showing inside feelings and want. And Luka's love interest, Peter is also a lucky guy, smart and loving guy to add. They make a good team. Always the fantasy and some truths in fiction writing, but this one had heart and some real cool moves. I also like how the sex was there and fun to read,and without being too much over the top.
A fun read.
Luka and Peter find in each other what they need for peace, happiness and love. I teared up during parts of this story because it was just so beautiful.
