Artist Arik Bosler is terrified he might have lost his creative gift in the accident that left his hand badly burned. When he’s offered the chance to work with renowned artist Ken Brighton, Arik fears his injury will be too much to overcome.
He travels to Pleasanton to meet Ken, where he runs into the intimidating Reg Thompson. Reg, a biker who customizes motorcycles, is a big man with a heart of gold who was rejected by most of his family. Arik is initially afraid of Reg because of his size. However it’s Reg’s heart that warms Arik’s interest and gets him to look past the exterior to let down his guard.
But Arik soon realizes that certain members of Reg’s motorcycle club are into things he can’t have any part of. Reg can’t understand why Arik disappears until he learns Arik’s injury was the result of his father’s drug activity. Though neither Reg nor Arik wants anything to do with drugs, the new leadership of Reg’s club might have other ideas.
I will admit, I have not read most of the Senses series from Andrew Grey. I read the first one back in the day, but not the ones since. Actually, I had little interest in reading this installment either. They just aren’t my kind of books. However, when Mr. Grey enlisted one of my favorite narrators for the audio selection, I had to give it a chance.
I won’t claim that Greg Tremblay’s excellent narration is the sole cause for me enjoying this book, I had to like the story as well in order to get through the entire book. I didn’t just get through the story; I enjoyed the journey.
Arik is not one of my favorite main characters, he is a bit on the whiny side. Reg is a bit on the too-good-to-be-true side. Together, however, they make an enjoyable couple. They both have some demons to overcome. But neither demons are too tragic nor anything they can’t get through together.
As with all the other stories in the Senses series, one of the MCs has a disability. His journey to accepting his limitation and learning to live with his new normal is an important focus of this story. In this case, Arik is an artist who lost the dexterity in his dominant hand. It may not seem like much in comparison to some of the other disabilities dealt with in the series, but a seemingly simple injury can have long reaching effects on one’s life.
Love Comes to Light by Andrew Grey is a feel good formula romance with a disability twist. Reg and Arik will worm their way into your heart. I recommend the Audio version with Greg Tremblay performing for you.
Greg Tremblay owns this role, just as he does every role he takes on. Tremblay dissappears and the characters come to life. Another 5* effort for Mr. Tremblay.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
