An Alisa Release Day Review: Guarding His Melody (Enhanced World Standalone) by Victoria Sue

Standard

Rating:  5 stars out of 5

Deaf since childhood, Sebastian Armitage had a promising musical future until his dreams were shattered when he transformed at twelve years old. In a world where enhanced humans are terrorized and imprisoned, his life shrinks around him even more as he suffers the torment of his father’s experimental research to enable him to hear.

Gray Darling—struggling with the scars left by his experience in Afghanistan—agrees to provide short-term personal protection when anonymous threats escalate into assault on those closest to Seb.

As the lines between protection and attraction blur, Gray and Seb can’t ignore the intense feelings drawing them together. But secrets and betrayals might prove deadly, unless Gray is willing to risk it all. And Seb must find the strength to make his own future and sing his own song….

I love this series so much!  This book doesn’t focus on the team but gives us a more in depth look into the lives of a civilian enhanced and how restrictive their lives may be.

Seb pretty much just exists, he loves playing music but his sickness and the continued surgeries and testing he goes through make his life almost unbearable.  Gray has been running from his past for a long time, taking care of Seb forces him to take a look and gives him a chance to move forward.  I missed seeing the guys but we get s short visit from them and see a hopefully future connection with these characters.

Gray is such a caring man, I love that he makes his protecting Seb into caring for him which is what Seb needs most, someone to put him first.  Seb is so innocent in many ways as he was sheltered by his upbringing and his father’s money but that didn’t mean he wasn’t completely immune to enhanced problems.  These two are wonderful together and give each other the courage to go forward and follow their dreams.  I felt for Seb and how much his father betrayed him, I was just glad he got what was coming in the end and it helped Seb that he knew he had Gray’s love and support.

I love the cover art by Jay Aheer it’s somewhat similar to the others in the series but many elements related to this story.
