When Stone stumbled upon Geoff and Eli’s farm, he never thought he would find the love and support he never got at home. After starting a relationship with Preston, he began to worry that everything would be taken away.

Preston did not care what the doctors or anyone else said; he was going to walk again. Maybe he hadn’t been on his best behavior when he and Stone first met but he knew that with the young man’s help, he’d be walking in no time.

The title in the latest Love Means series fits the characters perfectly. Both Stone and Preston have been facing issues that have kept them from living life to the fullest. For Stone, it was an abusive father and worse. That he would be mistrustful of others when first arriving at Geoff and Eli’s is understandable, as is his constant worry of not being good enough. Preston, on the other hand, may be your typical poor little rich boy yet he soon realizes he does not want to rely on someone else to do for him all the time. The intense anger he feels for his situation will ring true for the reader.

While the chemistry between the two is there, it’s not enough to sustain a relationship and soon they’re forced to deal with misunderstandings. One of the things I enjoy about this author is his ability to make the situations fit into the story so that when a twist does show up, the reader is not left wondering ‘what just happened’.

Love Means…Freedom is also full of secondary characters, all from the previous stories, giving fans of this series a chance to catch up on all their favorite characters. While each book can stand on its own, I would recommend reading them in order so that you can enjoy each new book as they come.
