Two years ago Mico and his partner suffered a savage gay bashing that left Mico a quadriplegic—and ended his dreams of traveling the world as an archeologist. Abandoned by the man he loved, he lives in isolation, tethered to his bed by the machines keeping him alive, with only his caretakers and immediate family as companions.

Assigned to interview Mico and uncover the story behind his assault and his refusal to identify his attackers, journalist Danny is unprepared for his reaction to the fragile, yet enigmatic man. Mico is afraid to let Danny into his life, and Danny is unsure how to change his mind. Mico is also keeping secrets, and he isn’t the only one. Danny is determined to protect Mico, and he’s determined to show Mico that their feelings for each other can thrive amidst the mechanics of Mico’s existence.

If you enjoy romantic tales of heartbreak turned to hope, the life-affirming story of Danny and Mico will make you believe in the possibility of love for everyone—no matter what obstacles they face.

Love's Tethered Heart by C.L. Etta is a very emotional read. I liked the way this story unfolds, feels like a great flow, very natural. I also liked that this story is not like any other I have ever read. It is a powerful well done read. I loved how it tugged on my heart strings and made me fall in love too.
Mico, he is a complex and well developed character. He has layers we see peel back as this story progresses. He goes from bitter, sad, angry to finally having peace and love in his life. With all he goes through he really keeps a good heart. He is a good soul who has had things happen to him no one should have happen to them.
Danny he is assigned to get the story Mico has to tell. He is kind, sweet, and can see to the heart of the man inside of Mico. Danny is the kind of person who is a true loyal friend. You would want him in your life.
Watching the characters in this book come full circle from darkness into light is just an amazing read. This book is really about learning to love yourself just the way you are. Very powerful read with tons of emotion. A must read for the truly romantic.
