Audiobook Review: Heart Unheard (Hearts Entwined #2) by Andrew Grey

The attraction between Brent Berkheimer and Scott Spearman peels the wallpaper, but Brent is Scott’s boss, and they’re both too professional to go beyond flirting. Their priorities realign after Scott is badly injured in an accident that costs him his hearing, and Brent realizes what is truly important… he wants Scott.

Scott pushes Brent away at first, fearing a new romance will just add to his problems, but perhaps he will find unexpected strength and solace in Brent’s support as he struggles to communicate with the world in a new way.

Just as they decide the chance of a happy future together is worth the risk, Scott and Brent discover darker challenges in their way—including evidence that the “accident” Scott suffered may not have been so accidental.

Listening Length: 6 hours and 2 minutes
Narrator: Greg Tremblay

Reviewer: Shee Reader

We first meet our guys (Brent and Scott) at work. Brent is Scott’s boss, and is older. The two men are just about professional enough to keep their sizzling encounters to just flirting. Scott thinks he’s given Brent the go-ahead, but Brent’s never taken Scott up on the unspoken offer. All that changes when Scott is badly injured in a car wreck. Brent eventually decides life is too short to miss chances to embrace happiness.

Scott can’t believe Brent is there as he recovers in hospital, but knowing he will never be whole again, he pushes Brent away. There is plenty of to and fro, drama and intrigue and a huge amount of growth in the men as they find their way to happiness.

Brent shows himself to be so strong over and over, but has his own demons to fight. Watching the two men come to terms with themselves as they try to let each other in, and build something together is a beautiful thing.

The supporting characters are so endearing, that I now need to enjoy their stories too!

I adored this story, and Greg Tremblay’s masterful narration makes it all the more enjoyable. His characterisation is perfect, and his emotion is so tangible that he brought me to tears more than once! This is a wonderfully sweet and charming story that deals so beautifully with disability and love. The epilogue is so sweet my teeth hurt. Perfect!

Highly recommended.
