I first fell in love with Dameron's writing and especially her disability representation when I read her novel Next To You. When I heard she was going to be releasing a novel with deaf representation and lots of humor and swoon, I couldn't wait. I won't lie, the bar was set high . . . but Dameron of course delivered. This book is filled was such incredible representation, heart melting swoon, and feel good humor. All the things that make Dameron's books so special!! The only thing I did miss were her gorgeous faith conversations. Those have such a special place in my heart and I hope she might consider bringing them back in this series! They are such a special aspect of her novels for me.

I think we need to take a moment to talk about the wonderful representation depicted in the novel. This was NO small feat and Dameron handled it with the grace and poise that we are so accustomed to in her novels. And because she handles it so flawlessly, I think we forget how truly difficult this task is. She always approaches these subjects with care and I love that she gives voice to characters we don't normally see in romance. And that's what I love the most about this book!! I have been wanting to find a book with deaf representation so badly (especially one that does it well) and I am so thankful to the author for writing such a special one. It takes a brave soul to tackle this type of representation in a book, especially when sign language is not easily translated into the written medium. And I think we really need to take the time to thank the author for all the work, research, and care she took in bringing us this novel. So thank you! :)

This is a gorgeous romance that is good for the soul. It's a comfort read for the heart and mind. Because when we open our hearts and minds to new perspectives and how other people live, I believe that's where the magic happens in literature. And those swoony scenes that only Dameron can deliver aren't bad for the heart either! Quite the contrary, I love some Dameron swoon (okay a lot)!!! lol. Thank you for this beautiful read, my friend!

CW: Not really any. Maybe some very minor workplace harassment. This is a sweet/closed door romance.

To Jamie: You heard all the words I never said and saw me like no one else did. Loving you makes me a better man.
