As a stunningly attractive man and the owner of a successful chain of auto repair garages, Trevor is used to attention, adoration, and getting what he wants. What he wants tends to be passionate, no-strings-attached flings with men he meets in clubs. He doesn't expect anything different when he sets his sights on James. Imagine his surprise when the charm that normally brings men to their knees fails to impress. Trevor will need to drop the routine and connect with James on a meaningful level. He starts by offering to take James home instead of James riding home with his intoxicated friend.
For James, losing his sight at a young age meant limited opportunities for social interaction. Spending most of his time working at a school for the blind has left him unfamiliar with Trevor's world, but James has fought hard for his independence, and he knows what he wants. Right now, that means stepping outside his comfort zone and into Trevor's heart.
Trevor is also open to exploring real love and commitment for a change, but before he can be the man James needs him to be, he'll have to deal with the pain of his past.
I’ve noticed something interesting about author Andrew Grey. He writes imperfectly perfect characters. I’ve seen him write love stories for paraplegics, burn victims, characters with some sort of mental diagnosis, and now a character who is blind. I have to say; it’s very welcoming. It’s rare we see this for some reason but Andrew Grey doesn’t shy away from it, he embraces it.
Heart Unseen is a sweet and beautiful love story about a gorgeous man who gets anyone he wants just by winking at them and a man who can’t see him but knows he’s beautiful on the inside. I loved the whole concept of this story. I loved that James knew how gorgeous Trevor was from “seeing with his hands” as James’s cute nephew called it. But I loved even more that James fell in love with who Trevor was on the inside. James had it rough, with losing his sight at the age of twelve, he remembers what it was like to see. Andrew Grey touches on things about James that we may not think of. Like how cautious he has to be when he eats, how nothing can be moved on him, how all his senses are heightened. It was interesting seeing the world through James’s eyes.
Trevor had a heartbreaking past. One that turned him into the man-slut James falls in love with. It takes a while to get to what happened to Trevor but we do get there. It’s only in that revelation do we see how perfect these two are for each other and how grateful you feel that they found one another.
I enjoyed this book and all the dips and turns it took. A little action/suspense is thrown in there which was quite the exciting surprise. But ultimately this is a story about feeling love and trusting it.
