Learning to Feel by N.R. Walker 4 Stars! (Free)
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?
I have read several NR Walker romances and I have liked them all but I like this one the best so far.
It is free and fan fiction. I am clueless enough to have no idea what it is fan fiction of, however. I guess it is seriously rewritten Twillight fan fiction. I don’t care. lol
I like this book the best because the love story feels complete as well as character growth and development.
Nathan feeling of sexual desire for the first time is compelling. As a doctor, I do think he would have done more research beyond libido and into the ACE spectrum than he did. I would have liked this discussed in the book as well for a richer story but it is well handled. His opening up to some other lifestyle changes is less well handled but the basic plot overcomes these issues.
Trent is a great mix of the tortured and sunny hero. His love of art is moving. The couple time is so good.
The dog rocks as does Nathan’s family and the small town hospital setting.
This is such a kind romance and its sexy too.
