Publisher Description

It was all background noise, until he made her stop and listen.

Sit still for a moment. Close your eyes. Listen. Just listen. What do you hear? When I do that, I hear ... fuzz. Okay, not really fuzz, but it's hard to explain what I hear. Put your hands over your ears. Hear that? That's kind of like what I hear, but not really ...

Being deaf in one ear and partially deaf in the other sucks. People think I'm dumb. I'm not dumb. I just can't hear you. I've worked out however, people thinking you're dumb actually works to your advantage. When people think you're dumb, they don't expect anything from you. And when they don't expect anything from you, you don't have to engage with them. I'm okay with that.

So why the hell is my sister's boyfriend's cousin, an annoying Australian named Caden, so adamant he wants to talk to me? I can't work out if he's laughing at me, or if he can see what I can see ... the world is worth laughing at. What kind of name is Caden any way?

I also can't work out why, for the first time ever, I wish I could truly hear the way normal people do. Surely it has nothing to do with the fact I wonder what his heart would sound like beating in his chest if I lay my head on it. I can't work it out and I don't like it.

Damn it.

Great read!

This is book three in the Always Series. Chase and Caden had met and interacted in book two while her nephew was hospitalized. In this book, many of Chase’s problems with her hearing handicap are addressed. Communication is a huge deal in any relationship, but more so when both hearing and speaking are hampered. I enjoyed the story and chemistry between these two and strong characters throughout the book. Great read!

Chase lives in San Diego and is hearing impaired. She has her heart ripped out and stomped on when the guy she was with used her defect to break up. She left college due to this and never went back. She does not like to be treated like she is unable to take care of herself. Caden lives is Australia and is top of his class in college. He is studying to become a Veterinarian and spends his weekends at RSPCA (the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals). He is also an intern for a celebrity veterinarian in Australia. These two have sizzling hot chemistry and drive each other crazy. The storyline was entertaining, the characters intriguing and the storyline was well written.
