Publisher's Blurb

As a stunningly attractive man and the owner of a successful chain of auto repair garages, Trevor is used to attention, adoration, and getting what he wants. What he wants tends to be passionate, no-strings-attached flings with men he meets in clubs. He doesn't expect anything different when he sets his sights on James. Imagine his surprise when the charm that normally brings men to their knees fails to impress. Trevor will need to drop the routine and connect with James on a meaningful level. He starts by offering to take James home instead of James riding home with his intoxicated friend.

For James, losing his sight at a young age meant limited opportunities for social interaction. Spending most of his time working at a school for the blind has left him unfamiliar with Trevor's world, but James has fought hard for his independence, and he knows what he wants. Right now, that means stepping outside his comfort zone and into Trevor's heart.

Trevor is also open to exploring real love and commitment for a change, but before he can be the man James needs him to be, he'll have to deal with the pain of his past.

Heart Unseen by Andrew Grey has a lot of heart and soul into this book. I loved the general theme of beauty is not always something you see on the outside. It is who you are on the inside that matters. No one knows this better than James. He lost his sight after an illness when he was ten. He is smart, sensitive, and has a great sense of humor. He is a little hard on himself. He teaches blind people mostly kids, to learn to be functional human beings. That their life is not over because they lost their site. He doesn't think he can have love because he feels he would be a burden to anyone he was with.
Trevor is used to men falling at his feet wanting to be with him. He can use his looks and charm to win over anyone. When he finds James is blind and his good looks will not win the day, this is refreshing for Trevor. Trevor is a supportive friend. He likes fancy cars. He is also so protective and sweet. I think in this book he even surprises himself on how good of a person he can really be.
Trevor does have a past like James too. They have had a terrible moment that has shaped who they are today. Learning to trust each other and themselves helps them find love along the way.
I love the emotional angst in this book. I also like the pure love in this book. I felt extremely attached to the characters. The pace of this story is great too. Kept me wanting to know more. Mr. Grey is always a favorite of mine cause I am a sappy romantic who loves happy endings. He always delivers that for me, and this book is no exception. When you want a beautiful love story this is the book to pick up.
