Description

Derek Osbourne’s life is mostly quiet. A routine that keeps him functioning, a job as a tattoo artist that keeps his rent paid and food in his belly, and if he’s alone through it well, there are worse things to be.

With his complicated past, Derek is sure no one would ever want to deal with the struggle that comes along with loving someone who has severe PTSD. Especially since the man who spent years abusing him is now in hospice, and Derek has taken over his end-of-life care. Derek’s resigned himself to living and dying alone, and maybe that’s okay.

Then one night, during a raging storm, Derek finds himself stuck in an ATM vestibule with a quiet stranger, and it’s in that moment his world begins to change.

Basil Shevach is new to Fairfield, taking over his dead aunt’s florist shop. He’s also Deaf in a small town, where he and his sister are the only ones not hearing.

It’s not to say he hates it there, but he’s not sure Fairfield is the place for him. At least, not until one night, when a storm leaves him trapped inside the bank with a man quietly panicking against the glass door.

He’s immediately intrigued by this unbelievably attractive stranger with bright tattoos covering his arms and haunted eyes, but he’s also bitter because he’s dated a hearing man before and it ended as badly as it could go for him. He had resolved years ago to never make that mistake again, but somehow, the frightened man trapped with him in that little room, crawls under his skin and no matter what he tries, he can’t seem to shake him.

Will the two of them be able to find their way together, or will their pasts prevent them from being able to find happiness and contentment when they need it most?

Free Hand is the first book in the Irons and Works series. Each book contains an individual story line with no cheating and HEA.

bland narrator

This narrator had very little emotion whole telling the story. The way some of the characters are described you expecting them to sound a certain way but there was none of that. honestly some parts I zoned out because the reading was just not that great.
the story itself wasn't that bad, so I was just reading the book and not the audible.
Also, he pronounced Moana wrong!!!

A whole new experience

So I Loved reading this book, when it came out in audio I was super excited to experience it in a different way. I really enjoyed this new to me narrator and thought he really brought Derek and Basil to life. This story is pretty angsty but there wasn’t a point that I felt that I needed a “break” from listening to it. In fact I listened to it in one go with minimal pausing. I honestly can’t wait for the next book in the series, this author has become an immediate one click for me. If you like authentic connections, chosen family, and side characters that attempt to steal the show....then this is def something you’ll want to spend a credit on!

WOW

Derek is a tattoo artist that has survived a traumatic and abusive childhood, with a few issues including PTSD. Basil, a local florist who is deaf is not interested in adapting to the hearing world, after an ex mocks his disability. When Derek gets locked in an ATM vestibule during a rain storm, the last thing he wants is for his PTSD to kick in, but Basil is there to help distract him and help him through. After they get out, both men feel a connect, but can they work through their pasts to come together?
WOW!! This book was absolutely AMAZING! First, I totally appreciate that the author put in a note requesting that the reader take their own mental health into consideration prior to reading this book as it deals with some difficult topics. I appreciate that the author cares more about the readers than the money received by purchasing this book!
Getting into the actual book, the characters were so well written! Both primary and many secondary characters are ones that are dealing with disabilities and the author writes them with such care and true acceptance. As a person with a disability, it’s nice to see not only characters with disabilities (especially in the LGBT community), but ones so well written.
I truly cannot wait for the rest of this series!!

Good book

Good book, tho a bit hard to fool at time. Lots if stories and lots of people.
Good narration, tho a bit hard to pick different voices apart.

Free Hand

This is the first book I’ve listened to (or read) from this author and I really enjoyed it! I’m impatient so I’ll have to read the rest of the series.

Couldn't hit Pause!

I actively ignored my co workers, and roommates, to avoid pausing this book almost to the point of being completely rude. It made me think a lot about the deaf community which I knew very little about. The relationship was fun and sexy. The back and forth between all of the characters was very real I felt like I had met them before. Definitely hoping to listen to the next one soon, the narrators brought the story to life!
