A Hearts Entwined Novel
The attraction between Brent Berkheimer and Scott Spearman peels the wallpaper, but Brent is Scott’s boss, and they’re both too professional to go beyond flirting. Their priorities realign after Scott is badly injured in an accident that costs him his hearing, and Brent realizes what is truly important… he wants Scott.
Scott pushes Brent away at first, fearing a new romance will just add to his problems, but perhaps he will find unexpected strength and solace in Brent’s support as he struggles to communicate with the world in a new way.
Just as they decide the chance of a happy future together is worth the risk, Scott and Brent discover darker challenges in their way—including evidence that the “accident” Scott suffered may not have been so accidental.

Another good read from one of my favorite authors
Entertaining, Enjoyable, Engrossing! ✩ ✩ ✩ ✩ FOUR-STAR ✩ REVIEW ✩ ✩ ✩ ✩ > > Judging a Book by it's Cover > Looking Deeper Third Person Brent had been attracted to Scott since the first day he took on the office manager's position at one of Trent's shops. (See HEART UNSEEN for more details.) Even though Trent gave his best friend his blessing to pursue a relationship with the younger mechanic so long they remained professional during business hours, Brent worried about the age gap and boss/employee aspects too much to make a move. Then a horrific accident occurred and the men came to realize that life's too short to limit themselves to the flirtations they've shared for the past two years. Brent had a few issues from his past to work out. Scott had some people in his past best left avoided. Together they had a sweet chemistry that had just enough heat. The secondary cast was wide-ranged. There were enjoyable characters and those that were purposefully dislikable. Some were amazingly supportive, others were stifling and suffocating. It was a cast full of variety and they all interacted well. The dialogue was smooth and natural. The plot was engrossing. There were some conflicts; some were fully resolved, others will remain a work in progress. Predictability was low. The conclusion is solid and satisfying enough for the couple's HEA, but I wish we'd have gotten better closure on Scott's case and outcome of the driver. I'd be interested in discovering if Brent took James' suggestion regarding a Penny-like addition for Scott (trying to stay spoiler-free here). This story continues (timeline) where Heart Unheard leaves off and the reader would benefit greatly if the books are read in order since Trevor and James are quite significant secondary cast members in this book and their story continues in the background of Brent and Scott's story. .
