Without Words by Delancy Stewart



Goodreads Review



Sometimes love speaks for itself…

After an accident in the line of duty, firefighter Roberto DeRosa’s life is turned upside down. His career fighting fires is over, and he’s left with an uncertain future and an injury that makes communicating difficult for him. The only time words flow easily is when they’re lyrics and he has a guitar in his hands. Talking to women is definitely out, especially if they have bright blue eyes that seem to see right into his soul.

Dani Hodge is on the brink of realizing her dream of opening a small combination wine and book store in San Diego’s funky Ocean Beach neighborhood. But before she can open the doors, there’s work to be done, more work than she can do herself.

When the tattooed guy who completely ignored her at a bar walks by and offers her a hand wrangling a tile saw, Dani can’t afford to say no—and why would she say no to Mr. Strong and Silent when his stare conveys more than words could?



Don’t we all like the broken and tortured Heroes? I know I do and this blurb hits the nail on the head.

Without Words is a sweet romance where both main characters fight the insecurities that they have and overcome to be who they want to be and do what they want to do in their life.

Rob is trying to get his life back on track and adjusting to his life with a traumatic brain injury. There are things that help keep him calm, singing is one of them.

Out one night at his buddies bar he finally sees some sunshine in his life but doesn’t know how to tackle his issues. Dani has had a tough time but her dream is finally becoming a reality. With Rob’s help she gets nearer to her dream.

I liked both characters but their interactions were so stilted that I couldn’t believe the chemistry that they had and believe me I wanted to.

The story flows well in most places at least. I enjoyed the characters interaction although their insecurities got in the way of me enjoying the book more than I could have. But the author still manages to offer us a sweet read with a happy ending.

Just not my cuppa and if my buddy Jeri likes it then I know that I won’t although I did have high hopes for this one.
