A Senses Series Story
Dan was a throwaway child and learned to take care of himself in foster care. As an adult, he devotes his life to the business he started and his heart to raising children no one else wants. Dan has already adopted six-year-old Lila, who walks on crutches, and then decides to adopt eight-year-old Jerry, who suffers from MD and is confined to a wheelchair.
Also abandoned as a child, Connor ended up on his own and retreated into himself. He works as a carpenter and woodcarver and is the perfect man to ensure Dan’s home becomes wheelchair accessible.
When Dan hires Connor, neither of the men are ready to open their hearts to the possibility of love. As they learn how much they have in common, both of them must weigh the possibility of family and a future against the risks of getting hurt again.
My View – Story:
This is the fourth book in the Senses Series and one that is bound to pull on your heartstrings as it involves children who it seems nobody wants.
Connor is a carpenter and he knows firsthand how it feels not to be wanted by your family. He still wears his emotional scars, albeit buried, but when he does any work for the local children’s home they are brought to the forefront of his mind. He always tries to spend time with the children especially the ones that seem to never move on to their forever home.
Dan is also living with his childhood demons and is more determined than ever to succeed in life, he has worked hard building his business and wealth and now he is building himself a family. He has adopted Lila, a six year old girl who relies on crutches to walk and she has quickly become the most important person in his life. When he decides to adopt Jerry, who is confined to a wheelchair due to his terminal MD, his family is almost complete.
Dan meets Connor when he hires him to do some work in his home to accommodate the new requirements that having a wheelchair bound child make. There is a bit of misunderstanding between the two men initially and Connor is sure he doesn’t want the job but after his first visit to the house it is clear that he had the situation very wrong. He is left amazed at Dan’s compassion and love for his children.
Their working arrangement sees these two men slowly fall into a friendship that becomes more after a night of too much wine. They both obviously care a lot about the two children involved and Connor ends up spending more and more of his free time with this new family helping out and joining in their fun. It moves forward slowly as both men try to overcome their fear of commitment and love.
This is a feel good story. There is little angst but more a slow burn romance all about love and hope. You also get the chance to catch up with Ken and Patrick from Book 1.
My View – Narration:
Max Lehnen is not my favourite narrator. I often feel as though his voice is too old for the characters he is narrating. He speaks very clearly and is always very easy to understand, he just doesn’t make me interested.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
