Overview

He's suffering in silence...
Teague Carter, one of the four owners of Pier 70 Marina, has spent his life feeling rejected. To the point that he has never allowed himself to get close to anyone. He prefers it that way, in fact. But he refuses to believe that his destructive behavior might be something more than rebellion.

He's unable to speak...
Hudson Ballard, Pier 70's mechanic, has been fighting his attraction to Teague for years. He has stood by and watched the kid get more and more out of control, but this time is the last. If Teague wants to use sex to escape his problems, Hudson is certainly willing to be the one to show him that he's good with more than just his hands.

Sometimes words aren't necessary.
There are fireworks when this out-of-control bad boy agrees to no strings with this tatted up, dominating mechanic.

Can Teague and Hudson keep their emotions from getting involved in their arrangement? Or -- thanks to the demons from their pasts -- will the darkness steal from them before they have a chance?

5 Star Review Book 3 in the Pier 70 series and this was the book I have been waiting for, Hudson and Teague's story. Teague suffers from depression and doesn't like himself or others very much. He has some feelings for Hudson who works at the marina but how do you communicate with someone who is mute when you have never bothered to learn ASL, everyone else at the marina learnt but Teague was to wrapped up in himself. Hudson and Teague share a deep kiss one night but Teague is convinced it was only a dream. This is not only a hot sexy love story its about someone coming to terms with their illness, wanting to get help and letting others help them so they can love themselves as well as loving others and once they start loving boy do they have some fun. I hope that anyone reading this book who suffers from depression( like I do) will get help if they aren't already. This story touched my heart it covers a subject that's hard to write about yet its beautifully written I can't wait for the next book from Pier 70 I was given this book for an honest review

This is the third book in the Pier 70 series and I loved it. This is an M/M story; I love how Ms. Edwards set up this story about Teague Carter and Hudson Ballard right from the very first book you just knew that there was something explosive about these two. Although a stand-alone, I would recommend you read Reckless and Fearless the other two books in the series, as you will get a better understanding of the Pier 70 owners and the secondary characters. Speechless is an extremely powerful book; the author has put a warning at the start of the book for a reason. This book deals with mental health, depression and suicide, which could be triggers for some readers. It was a book that was well written and sensitive; the subjects were dealt with compassion and respect. This was a heartbreaking and at times rollercoaster of a read; one I could really relate too. In Fearless, things between Hudson and Teague hit an all-time low. Teague cannot handle the feelings that Hudson evokes in him. So much so that he is bent on destroying himself with drinking and meaningless sex. Hudson is a Dominant and decides it is time to take action. Although mute, it doesn’t mean that he cannot communicate. Hudson has wanted Teague forever and finally makes his move; if Teague wants sex then Hudson is more than happy to give it to him. But is that what it is just sex? Scratching an itch and getting each other out of their systems? Or is there more? At no time whilst reading the story did I get the feeling that Hudson being mute detracted from his Dominant alpha personality, I had no doubts that he was the one in control. This is ultimately a love story; can Hudson’s love for Teague help him to overcome his feelings of self-loathing and distrust? One of the things I most enjoy about Nicole Edwards’ books is that she doesn’t just focus on the two main characters; she always ensures we get an overall story with no one being left out. Nicole Edwards is one of the best authors around when it comes to writing M/M stories in my humble opinion and this one is no exception. I cannot wait for the next book in this series.

Speechless is my favorite in the series so far for sure. I really liked the way Hudson and Teague were so different. Hudson is mute, and his personality is so reserved. He’s mature and calm for the most part. Teague is the youngest of the group, several years younger than Hudson. He has an explosive temper and loud presence. I enjoyed the entire journey with them. Speechless is full of sexy times, beyond smoking hot. It also deals with deeper subjects like depression and suicide. I honestly adored reading every word. I’ve been very busy lately, and this book was the perfect escape from my heavy workload.

oh, Hudson In this episode of Pier 70, you get to see how dominant, patient, and passionate Hudson can be. He teaches Teague how to love and be loved. This is a very emotional story with some dark undertones, but a very accurate discription of how depression plays a key roll in people's behavior. Absolutely a 5-☆ read

I have been waiting for Hudson’s story since I was about halfway through Reckless, the first book in Nicole’s Pier 70 series. Totally worth the wait! Hudson is a Dominant, tatted, stallion of a man, who spends his days working as a mechanic at a marina in Texas. Hudson also happens to be mute, but that takes nothing away from the previous description. Hudson is tired of fighting his attraction to Teague—a fellow mechanic—and comes up with the idea of a no-strings fling with him. By satisfying their physical attraction, they can get one another out of their systems, and be on their merry way. Along with his infatuation with Hudson, Teague is fighting his own demons. Thinking it’s a great plan, he decides to take Hudson up on his offer. Simple and easy; quick and dirty. You know that’s not what really happens, right? There’s no shortage of steamy hot scenes, but throw in some ASL (American Sign Language), and it gets even hotter!! I don’t want to give anything away, but when Hudson communicates, there’s no doubt who’s in charge. Even after wanting this story, I wondered now Nicole was going to pull off not only mute man, but a Dominant, too. She nailed it (pun intended)! She makes sign language very sexy. After a while, I forgot about Hudson being unable to speak, because he could. First, I fell in lust with Hudson, and after reading this, I fell in love with him. I don’t want to tell you why, because that would involve spoilers. This was a wonderful love story with some content that pulls at your heart for many reasons. Take the warning at the beginning of this book seriously. This book touches on the subjects of depression, mental health, and suicide, which could be triggers for some. Speechless is the third book in the Pier 70 series, and I am beyond excited about Hudson getting his story! I received this ARC as a complimentary gift for an honest review, and I give it 5 stars.
