Publisher's Summary

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.

Love is blind.

Endearing, Intense, poetic.

Two actually, when Trevor took James to ride go carts and when he took him bowling.

What about Greg Tremblay’s performance did you like?

Every - damn - thing!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Heart Unseen.

Any additional comments?

Grey's superb writing merges flawlessly with Tremblay's voice and the finished product is no less than amazing. I really fell in love with these two guys all over again listening to their story. Descriptives and voices add a whole new level to story.

Tams eBook review...

When Trevor sees James across the crowded room at a local bar, sparks fly. The self professed mans man that will never settle down, will spend his life fucking around with any guy lucky enough to be given his attention, finds a guy that is immune to all his charms. It's a foreign concept for Trevor when the beautiful man rebuffs his attention.

James has been blind since he was a child, but he can still see people. Their intentions, personality and attitude don't require eyes to define. James is anything but interested in Trevor. From the start, Trevor has to work hard for James to pay attention. And for the first time in a very long time, Trevor enjoys getting to know another man, dating, courting and growing quite attached to the blind man that seems to have staked a claim on the serial dater, without even trying.

I really enjoy stories where the Author does their homework, where the disability of a character is explored and well explained but it also doesn't define them. Grey has an uncanny ability to create beautifully broken and flawed characters, give them depth and meaning and bring their stories full circle by the end. I loved the slow burn with these two characters. There was no rush, no insta-love, just a genuine interest and old fashioned to some extent version of courting. Trevor had to prove himself to James, prove he would stick around no matter how hard things became. James had to deal with his own demons of the past that were bleeding over into his uncertain future with Trevor.

If you are a reader that simply loves stories where the happy ever after has to be fought for, hopeless romantic type of books, then you'll certainly love this latest from the master of hard fought romances... Andrew Grey.

Really sweet hurt/comfort romance

This is the reason I love Andrew Grey stories! Here we have a blind man, a “broken” man and a simple, relatively angst free romance where one of them is almost a virgin!

James is really, really sweet and despite his initial appearance, so is Trevor. There are some rocky moments with James’ family, but for the most part this is just two guys learning about one another and trying to make things work.

I really enjoyed this and think anyone looking for a nice, comforting read – especially if you like hurt/comfort reads – will enjoy this.


Audio

Greg does another fantastic job with this. He gives Trevor just the right amount of “swagger” and James just the right amount of “sweet”. He handles the emotions, the female voices and the timing all with ease. Highly recommended as the best way to enjoy this sweet, lovely story!

Love needs no Eyes

I have read very few books in which an MC is in some way physically or mentally handicapped or challenged but having read this one makes me happy because it is so beautifully rendered.

James is a blind man who has all but given up on love and Trevor is a playboy whose greatest attributes are ones that will be of little use to him when trying to win the heart of the reserved James.

The story of how that is done is a worthy one. This is the first novel I've read by this author and I will admit that the only reason why I gave it a chance was because Greg was the narrator. However, I am incredibly glad that I did because it really is a very good story and Greg brings it to life in a way that I have come to expect from him. Definitely worth the read :)

Where was the chemistry?

I think with this book I needed more chemistry between these two that I just didn’t feel. It felt like all Trevor did was try and find entertainment for James as if he was a kid and Trevor never really opened up to emotionally to him. Also my big hang up was there was a dinner and James ex was talking trash and humiliating him and Trevor did nothing about, plus he took off clubbing afterwards, that just pissed me the hell off! So between the minimum chemistry and the dinner that’s why I couldn’t give more stars, overall it was just lacking to me. ;-(

Amdrew Grey & Greg Tremblay is an awesome pair

What did you love best about Heart Unseen?

I really loved the emotion in this book. Andrew Grey really makes you feel for the characters & Greg Tremblay's performance conveys it well.

What other book might you compare Heart Unseen to and why?

Any of the books by Andrew Grey in his Senses series.

What does Greg Tremblay bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Greg Tremblay did an amazing job with the narration as always. I always enjoy his narration, he does a very good job with character distinction, tone, timing & emotion.

Any additional comments?

Definitely a recommended listen. Very good audiobook.

a beautiful story with a twist

It's been a while since I read an Andrew Grey book and this one was incredible! When I was first starting to read MM romance, I read all of Andrew's books that were out and have continued to purchase them but I have to admit his recent titles have languished on my TBR list. I was seduced by other tropes that I thought were flashier or sexier or had something more exciting. Well, I was wrong! Andrew Grey writes stories that have just as many feels as those that claim that they'll make you cry and laugh and feel - because that is exactly what happened to me when I listened to this tale as narrated by Greg Tremblay. At the epilogue, I sat here with copious tears falling down my face and they were both happy because Trevor was acknowledging his love of James and sad because he was getting his closure of the previous trauma (no spoiler here).

I am feeling truly satisfied with the storyline and with the narration! Greg Tremblay's portrayal of James was superb! I could hear his resilience and determination in every syllable along with his gentleness. And Trevor had just the right blend of bravado and 'am I ok' when he was talking with James! Many of the other secondary characters also stood out for me - Marti, Zach and Martha to name a few - were especially great!

I'm looking forward to listening to the rest of the series! I remember reading the "Senses" series and how they hit me emotionally and I'm guessing these will be doing the same if the first one is any indication. Thank you Andrew and Greg!

great story

great story read by one of my favorite Narrators. Greg did an amazing job as always and puts so much emotion into his reading makes you feel the story. Of course to do that he needs great material to do so and I believe the author did a great job at that too.

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
