Publisher's Summary

When a car accident changed the trajectory of his life at 15, Sam Braga set out to find his own way in the world. It never occurred to him he’d find home in Fairfield, Colorado, working with a childhood friend at a tattoo shop, and the legal guardian of a gorgeous little girl who was abandoned by her mother at birth. 

Sam has his life organized exactly the way he needs it. Maisy, work, and his found-family. There isn’t room for anything else. Especially when DCS gets involved and tells him that his disability might interfere with his petition to finally adopt the little girl he’s been raising. Sam might be lonely, but he just doesn’t have room for love. 

Niko Pagonis tells himself he’s not using the small town of Fairfield as an escape, but who is he kidding. When his NHL career ends two minutes after it begins, Niko flees the East Coast in search of somewhere to settle. He finds home in the form of his accounting firm and his gym buddies who never abandon him on leg-day. Eventually, however, it’s not enough. Niko craves connection, and above all, he wants to feel like he belongs. He stumbles onto the unlikely family at Irons and Works, and more than that, he finds himself in the path of the gorgeous single dad who has made it clear he has no plans to fit Niko into his routine. 

But things aren’t always that simple, even when both men try to make them that way. A misguided offer of friends with benefits turns into something else, and both Sam and Niko know they’re flirting with disaster. Still, neither one of them can seem to stay away from the other. Will they find their way through the mess before someone gets hurt? Or will it all come crashing to the ground? 

Blank Canvas is the second book in the Irons and Works series. Each book contains an individual storyline with no cheating and a HEA.

One-click series always

Since part 1 this series has been a no doubt one-click position and audio versions are equally good! Both the voice and the story are awesome and provide an immersive reader/listener experience!

Fantastic

I love this ebook series so much but really have enjoyed the audiobooks as well. My favorite part is when the narrator seems to get caught up in the story and you can hear a smile in his voice or his breath catch in a chuckle at a sweet or funny part. I can’t wait for book 3 and may end up relistenjng to this one soon.

Lovely Storyline

Absolutely beautiful love story between two people emotionally and physically scarred. E.M. Lindsey does a wonderful job with the characters and Scott's narration is spot on!

So awesome!

I have loved everything from this author and I don't see that changing anytime soon. She writes amazing books and the narrator does a wonderful job bringing them to life vocally. I look forward to the other books in this series coming out in audio.

Love this book!

This is a beautifully told story that is, like E.M. Lindsey's books are, meaningful and really get you thinking. I love how she tries to educate her readers and not just entertain them. And I did learn something about the human spirit and life's daily struggles. We all don't need to be 'fixed' to be loved. This story had me consumed from beginning to end and left me ready to dive into book 3.
Narrator Scott D. Alford does an absolutely amazing job in bringing the characters to life, really giving them a voice.

as good as the ebook

The story is always 4 or 5 stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook.

The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. It took me a little bit, to come into the narrator, but at the end, it worked. I only have to take a few breaks between. I'm just not yet finish with the book, but I listen enough to give a review.

PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!!

To my ratings:

5* - very very good
it's like an A+

4* - very good and will be often re-listening
it's like an A

3* - it's more then a one-time-listening.
it's like a B

Great series

I feel like I am really learning a lot from this series. The sexy times are still pretty sexy. Heat level is mild and low angst.

A wonderful story with well rounded characters

I enjoyed this series immensely, I would prefer the narration to be a bit more fluid but putting it around x1.20 did the trick for me. He does and alright job with his narration, I heard better but he was not bad.

The author did an amazing job with describing characters with a verity of disabilities realistically, more raw and not as clean as most books with disabled characters do. It really brought it into perspective, made the story that much better.
The group of artists in Iron and Works is a family, and that is always so very clear in this series. Each is a fantastic character, and they way they stick together and help each other is wonderful.
Sam and Niko have been building up to a relationship from book #1, and I liked how this book took us back to some of the events from the first book to bring us up to date with them and show us their view of things. I also liked that it took them time, it was not easy, physically and emotionally, for them to find the balance and courage to e in a relationship despite all the hardships they might face together.
Really looking forward to the next book!
