Such an emotive and beautiful story that encapsulated everything we love about reading.” Jenny & Gitte of Totally Booked”I loved this book. Loved. It. Why? Because there was so much to love about it, that’s why. Dax and Beck were lovable, likable, and desirable. And together, they burned up the pages. Their connection was intense and real.” Missy of Give Me Books “On Solid Ground genuinely opened my eyes to things that I had never come across in other books. It had: conviction, it had feelings, AND, it had heart.”Kawehi of Kawehi’s Book Blog”Experiencing these two men building a friendship and bringing each other comfort made me try to read slower to savor the journey even more.”Denise of Shh Mom’s Reading”These two characters were just screaming at me to read their story. So, I took a chance and I have to say this book is one of my favorites of the year. Loved. It. Hard. Loved it so much that when I was done reading it, I started it over again. I’m having a hard time letting go of these men and this incredible story.”Kara of Two Book Pushers”On Solid Ground is more than a story, it has a great message behind every sentence, every paragraph, and every chapter. “Shayna of Shayna Renee’s Spicy Reads

Learning to Feel by N.R. Walker

Resigned to living a sexless, loveless life, Doctor Nathan Tierney knows something is missing. In a rash decision, he leaves his life-consuming job at Mass General Hospital, Boston, to be the small-town doctor in Belfast, Maine.

With the job comes a house, and with the house comes a handyman-painter. Trent Jamieson, a nomadic artist, and his dog Bentley, are offered free accommodation for the few weeks he fixes up the hospital-owned house.

Nathan is transfixed by this free-spirited, undeniably gorgeous man. Confused but amazed to feel any kind of attraction – much less to a man – Nathan convinces himself to put aside any preconceived ideas, and allows himself to just feel.

As their attraction for each other grows, one man learns to live, the other learns to love. But just who is teaching who?

** Second Edition. First Edition released in 2012. No additional content has been added.
