A Love Means… Story
Bart van Andren, aka Spider, has been running away from life with a lot of chemical help. When he wakes up in a hospital, he discovers he’s picked up a champion. Duane must see something in Bart no one else ever has, because he finds Bart a job at Laughton Farms, where the people show Bart kindness and patience. He might even kick his drug habit with a little help from his new friends Geoff, Eli, and especially Tyrone.
Tyrone Jackson works at the farm despite the disapproval of his traditional black family, who find it suspicious that he works with gay men. Tyrone knows he’s gay, and until now, he’s kept his home and work lives separate.
Though Tyrone resists his feelings for Bart as long as he can—he’s seen enough of the drug culture to last a lifetime—he can’t deny their attraction forever. But before he and Bart reach for more than friendship, Tyrone has to face his family and Bart has to close the door on his past—a past that could put Tyrone, the farm, and everyone he’s come to care for at risk.
My View – Story:
This was a very sweet story of love and acceptance. It shows two sides of the same story coming together for a HEA.
Bart is the proverbial spoiled rich kid who had it all, except the love of his family. He turned to drugs to self medicate and escape from his world. Tyrone is a poor kids who has a family who loves him, but would rather accept the world of drugs than accept that they have a gay black man in the family. These two men meet at Jeff and Eli’s farm and instantly bond. Together they discover that love and acceptance is more important than any addiction could be. They form a family together in spite of outside influence. There promises to be a good future for these two men.
Like most other titles in this series, the story has its angst and each character comes with baggage. But ultimately, love conquers all and life goes on to be better in the end. This was another sweet tale to add the the farm series, but I felt like I wanted a bit more for the love story. It was too easy and too instant for my tastes.
My View – Narration:
This was my first experience with Andrew McFerrin. I’ve listened to several of this series that was narrated by someone else, so this one just didn’t work for me. There were few different voices and most of the characters all sound the same. The tone did not convey emotional changes, it was all pretty much the same whether someone was mad, sad, or just normal. Some of the voices made the characters sound almost stupid and childish. I was not very impressed with this recording.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
I have a number of paperbacks, most of which are signed, to giveaway. Over the between now (11 Mar 2017) and 31 Mar 2017, every comment on the blog (this post and all other new posts), will be entered to win 1 of these paperbacks. There are also some misc swag items, so there will be a few packs of these to give away as well.
