Point of No Return

Point of No Return  - N.R. Walker ****minor spoiler alert****

Meet Matthew Elliot one of LA’s best narcotics detectives. He’s smart, tough and exceptionally good at his job. He's also a closeted gay man.

Enter Kira Takeo Franco, the new boxing coach at the gym. Matthew can't deny his immediate attraction to the man his fellow cops know as Frankie.

I loved their story in this book! I loved their attraction and sparring sessions. I liked that their love story was not angsty, but sweet. I specially liked that Kira's father turned out to be deaf, and that their family signed. I use sign language daily since my husband is hearing impared, so that's something I can totally relate to. N.R Walker did a very good job describing how sign language "works" and how it can, and do, effect life.

He crossed the kitchen floor and pecked my lips with his. “Thank you.” He said it so quietly, I almost didn’t hear him. He was thanking me?
“What for?”
“For asking to learn. For wanting to know,” he answered. “Some people just ignore my dad and exclude him, because he can’t hear.”

My favorite scene was when Kira showed Matthew the "I love you" sign. Big sigh moment, indeed.

There was some major suspense at the end! Holy shiit! I especially liked how it was resolved. Sign language saves the hostages! Yey!
