Eli Henninger is a man worn out. He pushes himself to do so much on the farm, to make it the success it is today as well as raising his son with partner Geoff. Both men are overworked, tired and they need some alone time together but with a growing business/farm & family, their personal relationship has taken a backseat to everything else. That changes when Eli is accused of something serious with one of their riding school kids and then Eli gets sick. Geoff realizes he needs to change his priorities because a life without Eli is one he doesn’t want to imagine. Ever!
I absolutely love the Love Means… or as this author’s fans call it, ‘The Farm stories’. Andrew Grey’s stories have heart and I was absolutely thrilled to revisit with the main characters that kicked this series off in LOVE MEANS…NO SHAME. Geoff and Eli have a special place in my heart and I adored seeing these two again. The writing is tight and the story moves like lightening in a bottle, full of sparks, flashes of light and volatile energy. The reader is transfixed as we find out the issues facing Eli, Geoff and the farm as well as the cute little boy they are raising, Jakey.
Eli and Geoff have turned the farm around and have added to their land. But neither can figure out how to get some alone time together especially since both are working sunup to sundown every day and with hardly any breaks to reconnect as a couple, they are in danger of losing one another. Andrew Grey has a wonderful way of going straight to the heart of the matter with these two. With the right amount of love, desire and determination, he gives Eli and Geoff (plus the readers) something to show how much they have lost while doing their best for the farm. I love how the main characters learn to slow down, relax and reconnect. That spark I saw in earlier stories was almost snuffed out and this author did a great job in making sure it was recaptured again. Some familiar characters pop in and I loved seeing some old friends in the story.
LOVE MEANS…RENEWAL is a beautiful told story that captures your heart right from the beginning. Andrew Grey has another winner in his latest release and I, for one, cannot wait to see what else he comes up with for the residents & friends of the farm. I just hope we won’t be waiting too long for the next chapter to an amazing series. If you haven’t grabbed Andrew Grey’s Love Means… series, what are you waiting for?? Run and grab it-you won’t be disappointed in the least.
