Artist Arik Bosler is terrified he might have lost his creative gift in the accident that left his hand badly burned. When he’s offered the chance to work with renowned artist Ken Brighton, Arik fears his injury will be too much to overcome.
He travels to Pleasanton to meet Ken, where he runs into the intimidating Reg Thompson. Reg, a biker who customizes motorcycles, is a big man with a heart of gold who was rejected by most of his family. Arik is initially afraid of Reg because of his size. However, it’s Reg’s heart that warms Arik’s interest and gets him to look past the exterior to let down his guard.
But Arik soon realizes that certain members of Reg’s motorcycle club are into things he can’t have any part of. Reg can’t understand why Arik disappears, until he learns Arik’s injury was the result of his father’s drug activity. Though neither Reg nor Arik wants anything to do with drugs, the new leadership of Reg’s club might have other ideas.
Oh, Greg Tremblay, how do I love the sweet, sweet sounds of your narration? A lot.
This is a simple, sweet story with low angst about letting go the past and moving on with your future. One of the things I love about Greg Tremblay’s narration of Love Comes To Light is the way he brings Arik and Reg to life. For Tremblay it’s not just reading words on paper, he makes the characters seem alive. Tremblay perfectly captures the newfound confidence Arik begins to feel under the mentorship of Ken and Patrick, and Reg’s almost unconditional love.
I love the way Reg broke through Arik’s walls and called him on his shit when Arik was trying to use his past as an excuse for not moving on.
My biggest complaint is actually the way too sweet and everything’s come up roses ending. It is just a little too over the top perfect for me. The rest of the story felt pretty realistic, if overly optimistic and sweet at times, but the HEA ending felt like it took sweet and magnified it to the nth degree.
But for those who not only love a sweet story, but a super awesome, everything is perfect ending, you’ll be in seventh heaven.
For me, the narration is what made the story shine. I really enjoyed it. I admit I haven’t read any of the other books in the Senses series, however, I was easily able to follow along, never felt like I was missing anything, and look forward to checking out the rest of the series.
