    Courageous, emotional...Unforgettable.

    My life has always been lived by the adage that no obstacle is hard to overcome. When I feel something is hard to bare I keep in mind that there are people that have it way harder than I currently do. Lauren Brown took that and created a revealing and breathtaking read. Carli and Reed were the real deal. Made even more poignant by first person storytelling, Signs of Attraction is a story of courage that stirs every emotion and is easy to fall for. A wonderful introduction to Laura Brown.

    A unique reading experience

    I wasn't sure what to expect from this book because the blurb really doesn't say much, but one thing is sure - this book should come with a warning label that requires a reader to keep a box of tissues handy because it left me in tears and gave me a new appreciation for the challenges faced by people with sensory limitations that we take for granted every day. Carli Reynolds is a 21-year old college senior who uses hearing aids, but the lack of support from her family has left her feeling out of place and trying to fit in by hiding her impairment. Her newest class is very challenging, something her fellow student notices and he comes to her aid by guiding her through the process of getting the help she needs. But that's not all. He opens her eyes to a world where people like her find acceptance, understanding and support and he opens her heart to love, but will this be enough to overcome a lifetime of neglect? Reed is struggling with his own demons when he meets Carli but the attraction between them and her need for help are the distraction he needs. Despite their hectic schedules and his romantic mishaps, he's willing to take another chance on a relationship with Carli and but when a visit home goes all wrong for Carli, secrets come out and Reed has to decide if he is willing to provide Carli the tough love she needs to overcome her self-destructive behavior of if he will cut his losses and walk away from her. Reed was really a great guy, confident, nice, sweet and thoughtful and it had a lot to do with the acceptance his parents showed him and the way they raised him to always strive to be more in spite of his limitations. And it was clear to see that he brought that way of thinking to every new person he met who had similar limitations. Carli's family on the hand, personified dysfunction. With a father everyone was scared of and a mother lost in her own fantasy world, it's easy to see why she tried so hard to hide. Both Carli and Reed's backgrounds highlight the role family acceptance and support play, especially in the life of a child with an impairment. The story started out light-hearted and exactly what I would expect from a New Adult romance, until the point things changed for Carli and it became an angst-filled drama, in a good way. Now, I'm not one for angst, but I make exceptions for a really moving tale such as this. SIGNS OF ATTRACTION is an emotional roller-coaster of pain, triumph and love, and a unique experience for me as a reader, but is a book I highly recommend and I have to say kudos to Ms. Brown for sharing this touching story.
