Publisher's Summary

Geoff is in the city, living the gay life to the hilt, when his father's death convinces him to return to the family farm. Discovering a young Amish man asleep in his barn, Geoff learns that Eli is spending a year away from the community before accepting baptism into the church. Despite their mutual attraction, Geoff is determined not to become involved with him, but Eli has discovered that Geoff shares his feelings and begins to court him, neatly capturing first Geoff's attention and then his heart.

Their budding relationship is threatened by closed-minded, gossipy relatives and society at large, a whole new world to Eli, and he must decide whether to return to the community, his family, and the world and future he knows, or to stay with Geoff and have faith in the power of love.

What the Critics Say

"This story is written with heart. It is both bittersweet and uplifting, and reminds us that love can be generous and selfless and that a true family and sense of belonging don’t necessarily require blood ties. If you are looking to sink into a well written, poignant, sweet and romantic reading escape then I highly recommend Love Means... No Shame by Andrew Grey." (Rainbow-Reviews.com)

"Andrew Grey's Love Means... No Shame is a tear jerker. The characters grab you from the beginning and refuse to let go... This is one book that will make it to several keeper shelves to be read again and again." (Literary Nymphs Reviews)

"Love Means... No Shame is a story of acceptance - of differences, of each other, of yourself, and of how it is the differences that can forge the strongest bonds. Highly recommended. (NightOwlRomance.com)

    "this was good...."
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


    If you could take any character from Love Means... No Shame out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Elijah...just because of his fresh innocence...


    Any additional comments?

    "Another Winner"

    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.

    "So hokey."

    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.

    "Bad story and Bad Narrator"

    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.
