After suffering a tragic loss, Luka hopes to start his life over in America.  Once his plane lands, however, Luka finds out those things are not going to be as easy has he hoped.  Thankfully, one of the first people he met was Peter, who plans to help Luka any way he can. 

One Good Deed is a very good story by author Andrew Grey.  I found myself pulled into the story from the first page.  It is easy to understand Luka’s nervousness as he gets off the plane.  When he is picked up, not by his cousin but by a family friend, the news he receives almost sends him into a tailspin.  I felt bad for Luka and could understand the uncertainty he was feeling being in a strange place without the lifeline he was expecting. 

Like Luka, Peter also draws the reader’s attention.  From the beginning, the reader knows that something has happened in the man’s past.  When the events unfold, I was shocked, and unlike Peter and Luka, I would not have been as forgiving of his mother. 

Fans of the author know that he likes to make a connection between the main characters right from the start, so the chemistry between these two is strong.  I liked that Luka acknowledges that Peter must be handled gently and takes his time with the man.  When they do come together the heat between them is intense.  

There is a bit of a twist that I did not see coming and liked the way the author wrapped everything up.  Fans of this author are sure to enjoy this newest story and if you have not yet given Mr. Grey a try, then One Good Deed is a great place to start.
