Sounds of Love (Senses and Sensations #1) & Love in Plain Sight (Senses and Sensations #2) by Susan Laine
Police officer Jordan Waters is recovering from a shooting by moving to a new apartment in a new town and taking a new job. In other words, he’s lonely. His first instinct is to relieve his anxiety through uncomplicated sex—until he meets a man so far out of his league and experience that he stumbles for the first time.
Police volunteer Sebastian Sumner may be deaf, but his spirit, openness, and sense of humor give him the strength to get through anything—even the emotional defenses of Jordan Waters. But it’s his own family history that poses the biggest challenge. Can he learn to trust Jordan with his heart, or will his upbringing blind him to the sounds of love?
I love this story, the emotion, the action, the romance and of course the sex, but there was just something about this story that captured my attention and refused to let go. I have only one pet peeve and that was the cover the couple on it look like teens not almost thirty year old cops! I just recently bought this book because of another reviewer's um..review you get my meaning right? anyway I had seen this book on amazon countless times but the cover made me think it was a YA book not that I don't read those but this cover didn't make me stop to checkout the blurb. So just to say I love having books referred to me I don't want to miss out on an excellent read. Ok back to this story I loved it did I already say that? Jordan is so snarky & smooth that it was hilarious watching him get taken off his "I'm sexy & I know it" high horse by Sebastian, the chemistry between these two is apparent from the moment they meet. I loved them getting to know one another and adding Bas' brother "Bro" you gotta read it to get that and Tony Jordan's brother made it a sweet intense little family. There is some emotional drama but it isn't too angsty just enough to make me want to read more which I did by going to buy the next book LOL I Highly Recommend
A Senses and Sensations Story
What does love look like? If you see it, will you give it the attention it deserves?
Police volunteer Sebastian Sumner may be deaf, but he’s strong and capable. He’s been involved with Detective Jordan Waters for a year now. Their relationship hasn’t been smooth sailing, but their love is on solid ground. Too bad their work lives are on shakier soil—Jordan’s is, anyway, as he sets out with his partner to investigate Aldous Henley, a shady art dealer suspected of forgery and smuggling. But proving these crimes and bringing the man to justice is more challenging than Jordan expected.
Before long, Henley isn’t just a work problem. The case consumes Jordan’s attention, and he’s struggling to balance his busy professional life and his equally important private life—especially with a significant anniversary approaching. Love may be in plain sight, but that doesn’t mean it should be taken for granted
Ok I still don't like the cover but at least they don't look so young in this one, anyway the second book was just as effing awesome!!!! I truly truly enjoyed this couple I mena they both have some serious issues to deal with but they communicate so well that even though Bas is deaf it never seems as though he's disabled you know? He's incredibly smart and can take care of himself easily, I just think him & Jordan make one of the sweetest couple I have ever read. I highly highly recommend both books
