Some heroes wear capes. Some prefer sensory sacks.
Emmet Washington has never let the world define him, even though he, his boyfriend, Jeremey, and his friends aren’t considered “real” adults because of their disabilities. When the State of Iowa restructures its mental health system and puts the independent living facility where they live in jeopardy, Emmet refuses to be forced into substandard, privatized corporate care. With the help of Jeremey and their friends, he starts a local grassroots organization and fights every step of the way.
In addition to navigating his boyfriend’s increased depression and anxiety, Emmet has to make his autistic tics acceptable to politicians and donors, and he wonders if they’re raising awareness or putting their disabilities on display. When their campaign attracts the attention of the opposition’s powerful corporate lobbyist, Emmet relies on his skill with calculations and predictions and trusts he can save the day—for himself, his friends, and everyone with disabilities.
He only hopes there isn’t a variable in his formula he’s failed to foresee.
I do not disguise the fact the Carry the Ocean is one of my favorite books of all time. Emmet and Jeremey are two of the most special characters that I hold close to my heart.
Shelter the Sea is everything I could have hoped for in the continuation of Emmet and Jeremey’s story.
Iggy Toma rocks this! He is fantastic, the narration is damn near perfect, and such an absolute joy to listen to.
Dual POV from Jeremey and Emmet, no messing with the established HEA, just more feels and more love.
I loved it.
I’d had it wrong all along. I didn’t have to shelter the sea. I had to find the way to let the sea shelter me.
The is a new adult contemporary story with themes of hurt/comfort, romance, family, friendship, and love.
