Spider’s life was full of luxury yet very little affection, so when he couldn’t take it any longer, he turns to drugs.  Soon Spider’s life is out of control and it looks like there’s no way out, especially after his parents find out he’s gay.  When Spider accidently overdoses, his life changes in so many ways he is no longer sure what to think.

Love Means…No Limits is the latest release in author Andrew Grey’s Love Means series.  Since this series revolves around characters struggling for one reason or the other, it is not unusual for there to be angst woven throughout the story.  However, Love Means…No Limits is tougher than any of the previous books.  Bart, aka Spider, is a druggie running from the problems in his life.  This is a severely damaged character, yet I think readers will be drawn to him, especially as more of his story is revealed.  Some of the things he has gone through may be tough for some to read, yet it goes a long way to explain just who Bart is. 

Tyrone is someone readers may remember from previous stories.  Although his story is a little different from Bart’s, it is in no way less troubling.  Tyrone is a strong individual who struggles to be himself, while keeping who he really is from his family.  I really felt for Tyrone, especially when it came to his relationship with his mother. 

These two do not start off on the right foot when they first meet, yet as they spend more and more time together, they form a strong friendship that moves into something more.  One of the things I really liked about Love Means…No Limits is that the author took the men’s situations into account and did not have them jumping into bed as soon as they realized the attraction was there.

Since a majority of this story takes place at Laughton Farms, it is only fitting that a majority of the secondary characters are couples we have met before.  These strong couples are just what Tyrone and Bart need in their lives, as they show the young men that there is nothing wrong with the way they feel for each other.  They also show the men that sometimes families are ‘made’, rather than born into and when Bart’s past comes back to haunt him, his family is there to help.

Love Means…No Limits is a great story and a wonderful addition to this ongoing series.  Fans of the author are sure to love the new book.  While each story can stand on its own, I would strongly recommend that you give all the books a try.
