Cooper has spent the last three years running from a painful past. He's currently moving from town to town, working in restaurant kitchens, and playing his violin for tips. As soon as he starts to feel comfortable anywhere--with anyone--he moves on. He's aware that music may be the only human language he still knows. Ironically, the one man he's wanted to communicate with in all that time is deaf. Shawn is part of a deaf theater group at the nearby college. Shawn wants Cooper as soon as they meet and he begins a determined flirtation. Cooper is comfortable with down and dirty sex, just not people. As far as Shawn is concerned, dirty sex is win-win, but he wants Cooper to let him into the rest of his life as well. Cooper needs time to heal and put his past away for good. Shawn needs to help Cooper forgive himself and accept that he can be loved. Both men find out that when it comes to the kind of healing love can bring, the sleepy beachside town of Santo Ignacio, "St. Nacho's" as the locals call it, may just be the very best place to start. Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: Anal play/intercourse, male/male sexual practices.

This story felt incomplete to me. Shawn is deaf, a busboy, in school, and has a sister. However many pages later, that's still all I know about him. This wasn't a short story. There was plenty of time for Cooper to know more about him. He didn't. But love. Also, first person or not, I don't understa...
A solid 3.5 stars for me. I loved Cooper and Shawn. Their story warmed me and gave me that ooey-gooey feeling inside. Jordan and Stan killed it for me. I wanted to reach into the page and smack Stan every time he opened his mouth. I will definitely read book 2 and hope Jordan redeems himself.
When I have the word “deaf” plus the word “romance” plus the term “m/m”, it immediately catches my attention. But I usually end up disappointed when I read those books. Mostly because there are important flaws. Because the authors have a tendency to portray deaf people as normal people without the h...

This is a sweet romance about a messed up guy and the man who shows him how to open his heart. The way these two learn how to communicate and share their worlds...
