From the moment Carter finds the scared little boy who is locked in the attic, you can't help but fall in love with little Alex and his rescuer too.  Once again the author takes a very tragic crime and create characters and a story that warms your heart and helps to remind us that the risk of a broken heart is well worth opening your heart.  Without taking that risk the only thing you're guaranteeing yourself is that your heart will harden and you'll end up alone.  Donald has his reasons, or at least reasons he sees as worth it, for hardening his heart but with the help of a former one weekend stand and a damaged little boy he begins to realize that he's been living a very solitude lifestyle and that's not really living at all.  As is with many series where each installment centers around a different couple, I had a little trouble at first letting go of Red and Terry from Fire & Water but it only took less than a chapter  for me to get hooked on Carter, Donald, and little Alex.

This story begins with heartbreak. Alex is orphaned removed from an attic, an abusive and destructive “home” and taken in by one very reluctant social worker, Donald ‘Ice’ Ickle. But what unfolds is anything but your usual romance. I don’t want to give too much away as this is such a special and moving story…. What happens when you mix two men that want one another, but aren’t together, a child in desperate need of love and hope, and a secret or two? That’s what happens when Carter guilts Donald into taking little Alex in so he doesn’t have to go into foster care—the kind when there are no homes available right away. The treasure of the story is watching as the two men grow both as characters and as caregivers. As their care turns to love, their passion to permanency. Both men are hurt before the story starts, but little Alex just might have the keys to saving them all. This is a story that touches the heart as well as heats the blood. I hope we see more of the Carlisle Cops in the future! If you love love, romance, passion, and a reluctant hero, then this is the perfect read!

Disclaimer: This books reference child porn and child abuse. I may have missed this disclaimer from DSP. But that’s what this whole story is based upon and it’s important to know that, I didn’t. Maybe because I listen to this one instead of read, and I did feel like it wasn’t the right narrator for this story, I couldn’t get involved with either one of these people. I just wanted to tell Carter, stop whining, if Donald only wanted a weekend then so be it! (don’t let anyone tell you different, Mr. Grey sure knows how to write a whining character.) I get why Carter wanted to break Donald’s shell and I completely understand why Donald has the shell but I just didn’t seem to muster the enthusiasm to care. The fact that a five year abused child is the one that in fact brings these two together or helps them see there true selves or true feelings should tell you how rocky the relationship is formed. The tender care and love Carter and Alex show is heart melting and just brilliantly done. The narrator, this is the second time I’ve heard this gentleman and both times I’ve felt like he’s telling the wrong story. He reminds me of someone that should be talking about cowboys, and ranches not late twenties early thirty somethings with an abused children Book 3 Narrator 2 Overall 3 I was given a copy of this audio in exchange for an honest review by Crystal Many reviews
