ARC review for Createspace Books via Netgalley.
His entire life, Tommy Garrett has dealt with self-doubts. He thought he’d conquered the majority of them until a chance meeting with an author brought his illiteracy to the forefront…again. Growing up with un-diagnosed dyslexia has left Tommy barely able to read, but books are his Nirvana. Now he spends his life creating art dedicated to the love of those “untouchable” items.
Robert McIntyre, Mac, is a best-selling, highly celebrated author. But his point of view has become a little bit too narrow…until Tommy opens his eyes. That chance meeting has changed everything about his world. He has no idea how to find the beautiful man he met, and offended, at the library book sale. But when he does, Tommy’s life is in crisis-mode. It’s the holidays and Mac can’t just standby when Tommy needs help, whether Tommy wants it or not.
Two artistic men. One shared passion for books.
Life is hard, and sometimes when conflict arises you have to write your own plot twist to pull yourself out of the fray.
This book touched me on so many different levels. As a bibliophile and a suffer from dyslexia. Luckily for me, mine was picked up when I was aged 11. Reading is still a slow process for me, but audio books has made the journey much more smoother.
I loved the fact that the author has inserted a book-within-a-book (you will have to read it to find out what I mean), that keeps you gripped with the story within the story.
Christi has managed to create full fleshed characters that just leap off the page. Just like Tommy’s art work.
So I can not wait for the next book in this series!
