Promising start

It started off promising but then I feel it missed the mark a little, it moved a little too quickly and with the whole premise and a little more development it could have been so much better. Overall it's a quick and easy listen with a good narrator.

Beautiful and full of emotions

I've come to love Peter Styles's books. I've found him to write a wide variety of stories that pull at all your emotions and keeps you coming back for more.

In Love and Silence the most unlikeliest of pairs fall into each other's hands and have to navigate the challenges of not only their physical disabilities but how to love each other.

Harrison loses his ability to speak after an accident at a concert and ends up in the hospital where Luke works. Luke is a deaf nurse.

Against all odds and problems of their own creation, they make their relationship work.

This is such a beautiful love story. And Frank Miller did an amazing job narrating and bringing forth the story and all the emotions in it.

I was given this book at my request and freely leave this review.

unique

Did the story keep me engaged: yes
Were there any parts I found annoying: no
Did I feel an emotional connection to the characters: yes
Would I listen to it again: yes

This story has a very unique premise but I felt like it needed a little more background and believe-ability. I needed more convincing that a deaf nurse could work effectively in a patient care area, I also find it difficult to believe that someone like Luke, who has worked so hard to get where he is going would risk everything to have sex with a patient.. However, with that out of the way and a suspension of disbelief firmly in place, I did enjoy this story on a purely entertainment level. The characters are charming and it has a good pace, both Luke and Harrison are facing challenges and I enjoyed their journey as they found their way.

Frank J Miller is a new narrator for me and he did a good job of narrating this book, at times it felt a touch flat and I would have liked a little more difference in the characters voices, but overall it was an enjoyable audio experience.

Wow just wow

This is probably one of my top favorite books by Peter Styles. I loved Harrison and Luke, both characters were so charming. Harrison lost his voice and his singing career with a freak accident and lucky to be alive. Luke is a nurse who is deaf and is very compassionate. Both men clicked immediately, some professional lines got crossed, but the chemistry between the men was electric. Although both men each have a disability, this story shows how love can smash through any barriers and transcends. The narration was very well done.

Harrison and Luke

Harrison and Luke just made me smile. Harrison loses his voice and his career in one moment. His pain and fear came across as real. So did Luke. He’s compassion personified. These two clicked immediately and things went like wildfire. Professional lines got crossed and the consequences came. Luke’s independence and inner strength were impressive. He’s not with Harrison looking for a leg up. He wants to be his own man on his terms. I liked that Harrison learned to listen and admit his mistakes. His heart was in the right place but pushing Luke backfired. I’d love to see these two again. It’s clear they need a family and Dr. Ren needs his own HEA as well.

Audiobook: The narrator is clear and his pace is great. I would've liked more tone inflection and more distinction between the two main characters. I loved his voice for Dr.Ren.

From tragedy to triumph

The narrator did a good job with the story.

This is a wonderful story about the love that can blossom after tragedy. There was just the right blend of drama and sex. The MC's have to put in effort for their HEA and it makes the story feel more authentic. Overall a great m/m story.

Beautiful and Unique

Heart-warming with medium angst story that I enjoyed so much. The odd couple, not just because of their disability, win my heart. The premise is really interesting, on MC is mute and the other is deaf, both came from very different worlds. There is drama and a lot of relationship issues to be dealt with, and they didn't resolve pretty easy, actually there was some heartbreaking decision making. No insta-love, thank you very much. But it wasn't slow burn either, more like medium burn.

I liked the narrator, but I couldn't distinguish who said what because he didn't change much, so it was confusing at times. Besides that, I pretty much enjoyed.
