A running theme of the "Love means..." series seems to be the jaded, worldly gay man re-discovering love by meeting an innocent, inexperienced seemingly straight and often virgin young man. What could play into this better than an Amish kid on his first outing from his community? Although a bit predictable, it's a very sweet story. It's unfortunate that these stories so often demonize gay life in the cities, relying on the introduction of 'outsiders' for the central character to find any happiness.
Through no fault of his own the narrator often sounds silly having to cover not only all of the adult men's voices but also those of women and children. These books would be better served with at least a female voice to cover those characters.
the 2 title characters blended love with hot lovemaking... thrilling story I REALLY enjoyed this book, but listen to Love Means.....Courage as that is part one of this story. but either is good on its own.
Elijah...just because of his fresh innocence...
22 stars for this one!!
As far as I can tell, I have read all the books in this series. I am working on reading all romances by Andrew Grey. This book does not disappoint. The love comes shining through and the story is more than interesting.
Andrew has created a great world in NW Michigan. It almost feels like I could go there and find all these wonderful people. Great job Andrew.

I guess this could be a good storyline but the dialog and descriptions are so hokey that I was laughing out loud. The narrator doesn't help, his inflections are so far off it makes it sound even funnier.
Not a coming of age novel, not really a novel in general. It's a story where people fall in love for a specific demographic. (This time for gays)
I would have liked it more if there was issues brought up. There wasn't. Certain people in Geoff's life attempt to cause a friction but nothing upsets anyone. I stopped listening to it because it was going no where.
That being said, the narrator is really awful. There is his regular voice, his Geoff voice, and everyone besides Geoff fall under this really sad high pitch voice.
The narrator is half the problem with this.
