About The Book

Tadhg: After a nasty breakup with my manipulative ex, I returned home to Seattle to lick my wounds. I’m done with relationships. From now on I’m focusing on my career.

There are just a few issues with that.

  1. It’s not that easy for a Deaf man to succeed in a Hearing world, even with the right degree and experience.
  2. Quinn MacDougall. He’s my co-worker. He’s also incredibly talented, driven, and distractingly handsome.
  3. He’s hearing. And that’s the biggest problem of all. How can someone who isn’t Deaf ever truly understand and accept me?

Embrace Me is a 95,000-word contemporary MM romance about language barriers, loving but demanding families, crappy bosses, and sexy guys in speedos. It contains no cheating, and a guaranteed Happily Ever After.

The Review

The author’s writing style is extremely enjoyable and easy to read, and I also appreciated how well written the book was. The storyline drew me in, and I enjoyed how the story unfolded especially with how well the antagonistic elements blended to make the story interesting but not too overbearing.

That said, this story was more complex than book one and I’m guessing that complexity caused some scenes in the book to drag more than necessary, which caused me to lose my way a couple of times.

There were also a few elements of this book that I thought needed to be trimmed down more. Often, the overly detailed descriptions caused me to skim to find the more relevant parts of the story.

Still, Grey is an excellent storyteller, and I enjoyed both part one and part two of this series.
I recommend both books for anyone who likes contemporary MM romance.

4 Stars.
