Title: Love Comes to Light
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Author: Andrew Grey
Artist Arik Bosler is terrified he might have lost his creative gift in the accident that left his hand badly burned. When he’s offered the chance to work with renowned artist Ken Brighton, Arik fears his injury will be too much to overcome.
He travels to Pleasanton to meet Ken, where he runs into the intimidating Reg Thompson. Reg, a biker who customizes motorcycles, is a big man with a heart of gold who was rejected by most of his family. Arik is initially afraid of Reg because of his size. However it’s Reg’s heart that warms Arik’s interest and gets him to look past the exterior to let down his guard.
But Arik soon realizes that certain members of Reg’s motorcycle club are into things he can’t have any part of. Reg can’t understand why Arik disappears until he learns Arik’s injury was the result of his father’s drug activity. Though neither Reg nor Arik wants anything to do with drugs, the new leadership of Reg’s club might have other ideas.
Love Comes to Light is the last book in Mr. Grey’s Senses Series. While each of the books in this series can be read on their own, I would strongly recommend the previous books, not only because they are worth reading, but because several past characters show up in this story to lend the main characters a hand.
The main characters, Arik and Reg, pull you into their story from the beginning. Arik is an artist having to learn how to paint all over again. He is in a lot of physical and emotional pain and when you learn what happen to him you will understand why he is so cautious around others.
Reg is a biker. He owns the local garage and in his own way he is also an artist. Reg is not the hard core gang style biker even though he belongs to a club, but his rough exterior frightens Arik as much as it turns him on.
I loved watching the relationship grow between the two men. Their connection is instantaneous; however, Arik’s fears mean they have to move slowly. That Reg is willing to take things at a pace that Arik feels comfortable with makes the love between them grow even stronger. I also liked that Arik is shown that just because he can no longer paint like he used to, does not mean that he can never paint again. The author did a great job making this part of the story believable.
While in some ways Love Comes to Light centers primarily on Arik and his struggles, the author does weave a bit of mystery into the story that focuses on Reg. The problems they find themselves falling into really shakes up Reg’s life. The anger he feels is understandable and given the reputation of MC’s I was surprised, at first, that the cop believed Reg and Arik. The reason why is explained shortly after the cop comes onto the scene.
While it is sad to see this series come to an end, the way in which the author closes it out is fantastic. Fans of the series will really love Love Comes to Light and the chance to say good bye to old friends.
