Spurned by his father and driven from his home, Stone Hillyard is struggling to find shelter in the Michigan winter when he lucks upon the horse farm run by Geoff Laughton and his partner Eli. They take him in, warm him up, and give him a job working with their No Boundaries therapy riding program.
A drunk driver left Preston Harding unable to walk, and after months of hard work, his therapist recommends Geoff and Eli’s program. But Preston’s anger and arrogance nearly get him kicked out until Stone intercedes on his behalf, despite Preston’s insults. It’s a small act of kindness that helps open Preston’s eyes.
Stone and Preston will support each other as they face their families’ disapproval and fight old secrets. They’ll learn - sometimes the hard way - just how love can mean freedom for them both.

I enjoy listening to Andrew Grey's novels. They are romance novels with a very small amount of tension and drama. His work always keeps my interest and makes for light, romantic reading. If I had one criticism, it would be that all of his m/m scenes could be easily discarded since many of them make me cringe due to their odd phrasing and strangely named body parts. Having said that, I would still recommend any of Andrew Grey's novels.
As for this story in particular, I really enjoyed the two main characters. They are perhaps the most fleshed out of the Farm Series. The idea that one could be paralyzed and feel your life is over is very real and believable. To see the two characters work through and overcome paralysis is a beautiful story to base a romance on. I can see these characters together for a lifetime of love and hope.
Another great story from Andrew Grey's Farm Series.
Listen to them in order and enjoy the developments between the characters.
I enjoyed them so much that I've re-listened to all of the books in this series multiple times.
Great Happily-ever-After in these stories!
happily ever after
Story is sweet with mild conflict and a happy ending. Perfect for when I need an uplifting, uncomplicated story.
This is the part that follows the but... in my title. While many of his voices are OK, some are really off-putting. Most especially is Jeff's voice; Jeff is supposed to be a big, strong guy and narrator makes him sound like a silly twink. I really can't imagine Eli falling in love with this character image.
A heartwarming love story
Same review holds true for other stories in this series using this narrator.
Yes. Touching on a subject that is all to often ignored or pushed away Love Means Freedom shows life can be put back on track with time careing friends and love ones.
When Stone opens up about his past to Adele, if only we all had someone like this lovely strong caring woman who doesn't judge only supports with kindness wisdom and humour.
I love Robbie. He may be blind but he sees straight to the truth. He might be frightened of the unknown but he's willing to try to love and to be there for others.
The first time Stone trusts Preston to make love to him. After everything Stone's been through to finally trust again knowing he's going to loose brought up tears.

I'm so glad it's Sean Crisden who narrates most of this series! Mr. Grey is in his element when he creates stories of love built on imperfections and heartaches. And, when you have a great narrator who can bring those characters alive, you get perfection.
Although Preston and Stone are an unlikely couple, they learn the hard way that the journey to love is built on communication and trust. Fab story!
I am a 30 year old over-the-road truck driver. I listen to A LOT of audiobooks!
This was my first Andrew Grey novel, and I just loved it. Both of the characters are damaged, one mentally warn down by his life to this point, and the other by an accident that left him unable to walk. Out of this comes a love story that anyone would want to be a party to.
