N.B. - A free copy of this book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review in the MMRG Don’t Buy My Love Program. Spoilers are tagged. I had no idea that I was in for such a wild ride when I first started this. Heart’s Master is about Steven Ahearn and Nick (to be fair, his full name is said maybe once or twice and I can’t remember what it is, let alone how to spell it). Right from the start, the book hits you with some serious themes. Steven has just gotten out of an abusive relationship and is looking to get his mind off it by celebrating the last show and his successful recruitment to Broadway. Things are finally looking up… but then the car accident happens. No drunk driving folks (thankfully, not our lovely characters' fault). Steven and Nick bond over being victims and losing a mutual friend in said accident, though the consequences are much direr for Steven as he loses his sight permanently. The setup of the plot might be a bit gimmicky (a car accident, really?), but it works so I'll give it a pass. That takes you through a good 20% or so of the book and the first half of the blurb. When I requested to review this book, I had read the blurb and assumed it would be mostly a discussion about living and learning to love and trust again with disability, perhaps with a dash of magic thrown in from Nick's side. And in the beginning of the book—that is basically what you get. It was lovely to see Nick and Steven grow together out of a tragedy, come to care for each other, and see Nick becoming a sweet caregiver for Steven (along with an adorable seeing dog, Mirage). But, as you might expect, this is really more of Steven's story. Side note: I ended up finding a really interesting account called ‘Being Blind and Gay’ by Robert Feinstein (http://www.bentvoices.org/bentvoices/feinstein-blindandgay.htm) on his experiences as a blind gay man; funnily enough, it was shortly before I started reading this book and from a completely unrelated source. I would highly recommend reading his account (and the other articles on Bent Voices) if you’re interested in the intersection of gay male lives and disability. Truthfully told, it’s not something I have read or heard a lot about so I was glad for the insight when I started reading this book. Anyway, back to the book.
