THIS MAY BE A SIMPLE QUOTE, BUT IT IS OH SO TRUE! HERE IS MY REVIEW:


                          In The Absence Of Light by: Adrienne Wilder
                                                         reviewed by: Becky


For years Grant Kessler has smuggled goods from one end of the world to the next. When business turns in a direction Grant isn’t willing to follow he decides to retire and by all appearances he settles down in a nowhere town called Durstrand. But his real plan is to wait a few years and let the FBI lose interest, then move on to the distant coastal life he’s always dreamed of. 

Severely autistic, Morgan cannot look people in the eye, tell left from right, and has uncontrolled tics. Yet he’s beaten every obstacle life has thrown his way. And when Grant Kessler moves into town Morgan isn’t a bit shy in letting the man know how much he wants him. 

While the attraction is mutual, Grant pushes Morgan away. Like the rest of the world he can’t see past Morgan’s odd behaviors 

Then Morgan shows Grant how light lets you see but it also leaves you blind. And once Grant opens his eyes, he loses his heart to the beautiful enigma of a man who changes the course of his life





Let me start by saying I fell in love with this cover the first time I saw it, I know my tongue was hanging out of my mouth like an over excited basset hound, it is just magical! How could the book equal up to the wonder I felt when i looked at the cover, well it did and then some!

This author paints a picture with words as the paint and the page as the canvas, the story unfolds in glorious detail, and you feel as if you are there in small town Durstrand with Grant and lovely lovely Morgan!

Both these men spoke to me, Grant is far from perfect or innocent, but there is a realism to him that allows him to experience life instead of just living it, and Morgan has to live life differently than everyone else, but live he does, and he does it without apology, and on his terms.

Grant and Morgan share an attraction, but Grant resists at first, but who knew this sweet boy with odd tics and who lives life on the outside would be the one to show Grant how to truly appreciate life and those who want to share it with him.

There will be trials when Grant's past can't seem to stay buried, will these two men be able to let love win, or will they be driven apart by ghosts from one of their pasts? 

You really can't miss this one friends, you will be missing not just a wonderful book, but a wonderful experience! Thanks Adrienne, for a book I will not soon forget, and I am sure to pick up again shortly!

HOW AWESOME IS THAT! THANKS ADRIENNE, FOR THE TEASER EXCERPT! HERE IS A LITTLE ABOUT ADRIENNE:





Georgia born and bred, I am an artist, a writer, and a general pain in the ass. 
I spend most of my days working on my next book or designing cover art for other writers. For stress relief I do olympic lifting and occasionally run (but hate it). I have been in love with writing since I was very young but it wasn't until recently that I decided to pursue it as a profession. 
I have experimented in several genres and found that since I identify as male, male romance has been the most comfortable for me to write. I don't discriminate in my books. All characters are fair game. I do however, prefer a happy ending at some level.
I don't write the standard romance book. Some might even argue that what I write isn't romance at all. Personally I think of them as love stories, where even in a fantastical world, there are realistic outcomes to the obstacles the characters face.
Many of my books have dark turns and twists where the characters fight for the light at the end of the tunnel. I write action, fist fights, gun fights, down right dirty evil people who have to be stopped, things catch fire, blow up, and fall in. My characters come in a unique range. They are not all good guys, but the majority of them have very good hearts. Many of them have been through hell in their lives, and many of them have a laundry list of faults. But hopefully they manage to surprise you with their tenacity and loyalty. 
If all goes well, there will be a myriad of different kinds of books available this year. If I am really lucky, you will enjoy them.
