Genre: M/M Romance
Release date: March 7th 2014
Rating: ****

Book Blurb: When architect Gregory Hampton’s son, Davey, starts having trouble in Little League, Greg takes him to an eye doctor. The diagnosis hits them hard. Davey’s sight is degenerating rapidly, and eventually he’ll go blind.

Tom Spangler is used to getting what he wants. When Greg captures his attention, he asks Greg for a date. They have a good time until Greg gets a call from the friends watching his son, telling him Davey has fallen. Greg and Tom return to find the worst has happened—Davey can no longer see.

But Tom has researched beep baseball, where balls and bases make sounds to enable the visually impaired to participate in Little League. Tom spearheads an effort to form a team so Davey can continue to play the game he loves. But when Greg’s ex-wife shows up with her doctor boyfriend, offering a possible cure through a radical procedure, Greg must decide how far he’ll go to give Davey a chance at getting his sight back.

This is Book Three in the Senses Series.


First of all, let me just say that I was skeptical to read this book. I mean, Tom sounds like a complete asshole in the blurb. He "gets what he wants" basically means he a total tool. I was happy to find that he wasn't like that at all. He was considerate, great with Davey and only a little bit selfish. He's a rich kid acting like a regular Joe. Well, except for when he drives his Ferrari.

The best thing about this book to me was how Davey and Greg learn to deal with Davey losing his sight. It all seemed real and believe me, parts were heart wrenching. Definitely a tearjerker. It wasn't depressing though, which was a huge feat given the subject matter. A kid goes blind? How can you make that light and fluffy? But somehow Andrew Grey manages to do that.

Beep ball was at times confusing, but hey, I barely understand baseball. I am NOT a sports girl. It gave Davey a sense that he didn't lose everything he loves because he is blind. The message was powerful. Change can be scary, but it's not always a bad thing.

I would definitely recommend this book. It was sweet and pulled at the heartstrings.

I received a free copy of this book in return for an honest review. (Netgalley)
