|He’s suffering in silence…
Teague Carter, one of the four owners of Pier 70 Marina, has spent his life feeling rejected. To the point that he has never allowed himself to get close to anyone. He prefers it that way, in fact. But he refuses to believe that his destructive behavior might be something more than rebellion.
He’s unable to speak…
Hudson Ballard, Pier 70’s mechanic, has been fighting his attraction to Teague for years. He has stood by and watched the kid get more and more out of control, but this time is the last. If Teague wants to use sex to escape his problems, Hudson is certainly willing to be the one to show him that he’s good with more than just his hands.
Sometimes words aren’t necessary.
There are fireworks when this out-of-control bad boy agrees to no strings with this tatted up, dominating mechanic.
Can Teague and Hudson keep their emotions from getting involved in their arrangement? Or — thanks to the demons from their pasts — will the darkness steal from them before they have a chance?
Theresa M’s Review: 5 STARS
I have been waiting for Hudson’s story since I was about halfway through Reckless, the first book in Nicole’s Pier 70 series. Totally worth the wait!
Hudson is a Dominant, tatted, stallion of a man, who spends his days working as a mechanic at a marina in Texas. Hudson also happens to be mute, but that takes nothing away from the previous description.
Hudson is tired of fighting his attraction to Teague—a fellow mechanic—and comes up with the idea of a no-strings fling with him. By satisfying their physical attraction, they can get one another out of their systems, and be on their merry way. Along with his infatuation with Hudson, Teague is fighting his own demons. Thinking it’s a great plan, he decides to take Hudson up on his offer. Simple and easy; quick and dirty. You know that’s not what really happens, right?
There’s no shortage of steamy hot scenes, but throw in some ASL (American Sign Language), and it gets even hotter!! I don’t want to give anything away, but when Hudson communicates, there’s no doubt who’s in charge. Even after wanting this story, I wondered now Nicole was going to pull off not only mute man, but a Dominant, too. She nailed it (pun intended)! She makes sign language very sexy. After a while, I forgot about Hudson being unable to speak, because he could.
First, I fell in lust with Hudson, and after reading this, I fell in love with him. I don’t want to tell you why, because that would involve spoilers. This was a wonderful love story with some content that pulls at your heart for many reasons.
Take the warning at the beginning of this book seriously. This book touches on the subjects of depression, mental health, and suicide, which could be triggers for some.
Speechless is the third book in the Pier 70 series, and I am beyond excited about Hudson getting his story!
I received this ARC as a complimentary gift for an honest review, and I give it 5 stars.
