Blurb: Micah Valery and Dr Santiago Curtis meet over Micah’s unconscious golden retriever. Santiago tranquilized her. That’s a good way to start a relationship, right?
Micah Valery is hearing impaired and unable to speak. As if that didn’t make life interesting enough, he also suffers from a panic disorder that regularly disrupts his life. With a wonderful assistance dog named Goldie, however, he manages to live independently, and comfortably.
When something goes wrong with Goldie, he meets Dr Santiago Curtis, a veteran veterinarian with issues of his own to cope with. Still, the attraction is strong enough to explore, and a new romance blooms.
Enter Micah’s estranged family, attempting to deprive him of his inheritance.
Review: This story has two well-matched, sexy men and a supporting cast of adorable furry friends.
Micah and Santiago make a great couple. Both men have disabilities and problems, yet find ways to overcome them together. I have deaf/hearing impaired friends, so it was good to see such a couple so well presented. Their romance wasn’t rushed, and they overcame their obstacles wonderfully. Micah is actually far stronger than he thinks.
Situations come thick and fast for the couple, and while this is enjoyable and keeps a reader on their toes, I would have loved to see more of the couple just enjoying one another.
Micah’s human family has no redeeming qualities, but his and Santiago’s furry family is just adorable.
I would recommend it to anyone who likes hot, sexy guys, a dash of hurt/comfort, cute furry friends, and a HEA.
