    1. **2.5 stars**Audiobooks are extremely subjective. When you read a book yourself, you have your own idea of how the character sounds, but when you have an audiobook, the will of the narrator is forced upon you. This can be hit or miss, and I have really visceral reactions to some narrators. A few narrators have made books that might have been mediocre into absolutely fabulous reads. I have also had the opposite experience. This is one of those.I kept trying to place the age of the narrator of thi [...]

    3. With this story, Mr. Grey shows us that we can have a touching, beautiful story without resorting to unnecessary angst created by damaged characters or seeing a boyfriend giving a blow job to a sworn enemy. Neither do we have to have fluffy story with i-love-u being said on every other pages.There's no bad guy in this novel. No evil, homophobic father or clergyman. Yes, the main characters are not necessarily ordinary persons, being a rich painter and a former singing star, but the story itself [...]

    4. Wonderful! So emotional and heart breaking. I enjoyed it so much, despite the fact that it made me cry countless of times.I love the stories where the romance builds slowly. The outcome is really more anticipated.Ken,a gifted painter, after recently moving, learns that his adopted daughter Hannah suffers from cancer. His boyfriend decides to break up with him, and he's left to endure all these situations alone. He feels hopeless and devastated, but when his neighbour Patrick shows up and makes h [...]

    5. I better make sure I get a spare boxes of tissues :)UpdatedI'm in love with the book's cover, one of the most beautiful I've have ever seen. Honestly I was expecting to cry for most parts of the book, I didn't. Andrew wrote a wonderful story, mind you, some parts of it were sad but none were unbearable, he didn't write the story in a dramatic way. The 2 main characters were so lovely, and for those readers who don't like insta love, they are going to be very pleased to know these couple didn't k [...]

    6. This was definitely not the story I was expecting after reading the summary. The story that I read was a beautiful and romantic story between two men, one who has suffered a tragic accident and is trying to learn to live again and one who is trying to hold on to what is most precious in his life. I really thought that this would be a book full of angst and pull at the heart string moments, and while there are moments that are sad, there is so much hope and love in this story that you are just ca [...]

    7. Overall book rating 4 Stars Audio book: Narrator - Max Lehnen 4 Stars Book cover: 3 StarsThis book had me in tears It was sweet and sad and had my emotions all mixed up.

    8. A very sweet story.It is almost like a fairy tale, Ken, dear Ken loves his daughter and when she is diagnosed with a potentially deadly disease, his life changesPatrick, the world was his oyster until a tragedy that took what meant the most to him away! These two great guys meet and a friendship ensues.Patrick is a real sweetheart, he takes care of so many things for Ken, without being asked or thanked, he doesn't even let Kem know all the things he does, but that's what friends do, and Ken need [...]

    9. I don't know how this book slipped past me. A gay painter who adopted a daughter struggles through treatment for leukemia with her. His neighbor, who is mute, begins doing some very sweet things for him and his daughter. Very sweet love story that will turn on the water works

    10. This is a really sweet romance with fabulous characters and an interesting story line. What makes this story special is it's "realness". The love story and drama are not over-the-top, rather it is real men, facing real issues and real heartbreak and coming out the end in one piece. It is not easy, as the story has elements of tragedy, illness, heartbreak and sadness. But it is how Ken and Patrick face the world that is inspirational (little Hanna should also get a mention here!)Ken is facing the [...]

    11. 4 to 4,5 stars of loving, tender, moving love storySometimes all I need is to be able to sit back and enjoying a book that brings calm and heart-warming. This is one of the books I was lucky to find. I read about Mr. Grey’s books when searching for M/M romance, browsing for them and decided that this one was going to be the first from Mr. Grey I would read. Just read the blurb and see the cover, isn’t it beautiful? :)Ken Brighton and Patrick Flaherty are two very kind, loving men. They’re [...]

    12. Every once in a while a book comes long that gets high marks from all my friends, but then falls flat for me. This was one of those books :( It was a very sweet and very emotional book, but overall it just didn't do it for me. It happens. Won't stop me from reading Andrew Grey again. Moving on

    13. Sometimes a book comes along that will touch you in ways not expected. This is one of those for me. I have read Andrew Grey's books before. I enjoyed them. This one stands out. I am normally not big on books that are overly angsty. I don't mind an occasional sad scene if it furthers the story but I do not care to be overwhelmed by them. This book is different. I was completely invested from the very first page of the prologue until THE END. Ken and his partner of two years, Mark, move with Ken's [...]

    14. I must begin with a tissue warning, be sure they are handy, you will need one or ten! Also, don't start this book and expect to be able to sit it down, it's damn near impossible.How do you convey the most basic feelings and emotions to the person you love, when you have no voice to speak them. Ken Brighton's world is turned upside down when he learns his young daughter, Hannah, has cancer. To make matters worse his already strained relationship with his partner Mark is stretched even thinner as [...]

    15. A beautiful love story. I'm torn on rating this book. The emotive part of me wants to rate it 5, the rational part of me is more like 3, so I guess I end with a 4. I know that if I wasn't in the mood for an emotional story that purposely plucks at the heartstrings I would have been less sympathetic in my rating. Usually, I feel resentment when an author is manipulative, but the way it was done--the care, the subtlety of the angst made me less angry. The story itself is both sad and wondrous, sor [...]

    16. An excellent Andrew Grey novel. I'm not a fan of angst, but I loved the story line with Hannah and her illness. The romance had a very nice, slow arc and lots of emotion and heat. Definitely 5 stars.

    17. There was everything I expect from Andrew Grey tender and sweet romance with strong sense of family and friends.

    18. This is a tender romance between a painter and a former singer. The heart of the story is the little girl who is fighting cancer.The romance is sweet and slow building.The aspects outside of the love story and the relationships with the daughter are a bit too sketched to make this a rich book but it is a lovely sweet read.

    19. I'm going to dissect the first paragraph of this novel to show how poorly it's written, and why no publisher should have let it seen the light of day. Don't think I'm fussing over one or two sentences. The first paragraph represents the novels uniform flaws. And they get worse. Horrible sentence construction and prose compact the terrible plotting and grammatical issues. Not one part of this novel showcased fine writing. The novel is plagued with so many issues on so many levels, I can only tack [...]

    20. I love Andrew Grey. I do, but this one was a bit of a conundrum for me. This story really focuses around Ken and his adopted daughter Hanna and her illness. Ken is a famous artist and currently involved with Mark He decides to relocate to give his six year old daughter a more rural environment--a home town feel. Once there, Hanna gets sick and it is soon discovered she has Leukemia and so begins the nightmare of countless treatments that leave Hanna in such a weakened condition that it is appare [...]

    21. It's been awhile since I've used multiple tissues just to get through a book. Cancer is horrible to have to deal with, but for a child to have to go through it breaks my heart. I actually had to look to the end of the book, not long after I started it, to see if I was going to have to read about Hanna dying so I could mentally prep myself for it. I don't often do that when reading a book. Not that it really helped; I still cried every time Hanna took a turn for the worst. And I cried when good t [...]

    22. OMG This was such an amazing book, from beginning to end it kept me trapped! If you haven't read it I recommend you to NOT read any spoilers, in fact please try not to read to many reviews so you can get the whole experience.SPOILERS AFTER THIS POINT.Ok, I really really loved how Ken and Patrick began slowly as friends, I loved how their relationship was forged, I loved their maturity, it was just right.I also loved how Mark wasn't made a bad and totally unlikable character, even if things didn' [...]

    23. *sigh* Have I mentioned how much I love adorable m/m stories? Because I really, really do. I can't get enough of them and I feel like I hit the jackpot when I stumble across one.This book was very sweet. Ken was such a beautiful character to read. His love for his daughter was so heartwarming. But it was the mute Patrick that really stole my heart. His story is heartbreaking. He's silent, sensitive and completely made my heart melt with how thoughtful he is. All the stuff he did for Ken and Hann [...]

    24. let me start this review with:HOLY FUCKING SHIT HOW DO YOU EVEN WRITE A BOOK LIKE THAT?!!!!!!!! if you're looking for a book that will wreck your sould, have a great love-story that's not only about love, and also which will make you cry, and smile at the same time, then this one is what you're looking for!

    25. This was a lovely story.I do like that Hanna's illness wasn't just a backdrop. But, man, the thought of any child going through all that, is heartbreaking. I know it happens every day, which makes it even sadder.Ken and Patrick gravitate towards each other, but don't just jump into a relationship out of the blue.There is a friendship forged first.cially with Hanna.Good story.

    26. As much as I love stories with mysterious plots, overpoweringly evil bad guys, and angsty drama all over the place, what a makes a story great, for me, is the characters involved. And that is why I love Andrew Grey’s stories so much: they are always about the men first, and the events second. This is not to say what happens or the secondary characters in Andrew’s stories are in any way unimportant. It is more that his focus is firmly on the main characters. The ‘Love is…’ series is a g [...]

    27. This review was posted at Under the CoversThis is one of those sad but feel good stories about facing and overcoming adversities. I was almost in tears from the very beginning when we meet Hanna, Ken’s daughter. She’s been sick and now is diagnosed with cancer. They had just moved to a new town when this happens and after the first round of treatment, Ken’s longtime boyfriend decides to dump him.It was sad to see Hanna go through her stages of being a happy and active kid, and then revert [...]

    28. Rating overviewWriting: ★★★★Story: ★★★★(★)Characters: ★★★★★Overall: ★★★★★ (4.5)~~~This is definitively a read that ended far too quickly and I am really looking forward to be reading more from this author.The story is breathtaking and heartbreaking from the beginning - Hanna, Ken's precious adopted daughter has leukaemia and is fighting the disease with everything she's got despite only being six years old. This is when Patrick steps into their lives, a man [...]
