2016 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: The Heart As He Hears It by A.M. Arthur (402-09-05-2016)

1) Loved this book. This author has a talent for taking unusual characters with unusual issues, giving them a great story and an even better happily ever after. Just an amazing read.

2) This is a truly heartfelt story. It left me wanting to take Isaac and envelop him in my arms and protect him from the world, to reassure him that no one would hurt him ever again. I appreciated the patience and room Jon and Henry gave him. I loved Henry as well. A sweet dying man who didn't know he had a son, now dead, let alone a grandson, the only family he had left. I loved Jon for his tenderness toward Isaac, the love he felt for him. This was truly a great story and I'm looking forward to reading the previous books.

Love can slip through the smallest crack in the door.

Perspectives, Book 3

While most of his friends have moved on to “real” careers, Jon Buchanan is content skating through life as a part-time waiter and gay porn star. Firmly single thanks to a previous relationship disaster, he focuses his spare time on Henry, a dear friend dying of cancer.

And with Henry's happiness paramount, Jon is on a mission to help Henry meet his recently discovered grandson.

Isaac Gregory hasn't set foot outside for the past year. He has everything he needs delivered, and his remaining family knows better than to visit. When a complete stranger shows up claiming to be his grandfather-with a distractingly handsome younger man in tow-his carefully structured routines are shaken.

Despite his instant attraction, Jon senses Isaac is too fragile for a relationship. Yet tentative friendship grows into genuine companionship. And when Henry's health begins to fail, they realize Fate brought them together for a reason.

Warning: Product contains a neurotic porn star with body image issues, a virgin hero with severe agoraphobia, and a fluffy ball of gray cuteness you'll want to take home and cuddle. Also contains references to past abuse some readers might find disturbing.
