Love Means... No Fear (Love Means...)

Love Means... No Fear - Andrew  Grey This is another nice story about men trying to sort their lives out, determining what they really want and making decisions about their future.This time the story is about Raine (Geoff's friend who works in finance and lives in the city) and Jonah (Eli's brother, who arrives straight from the Amish community).The formula is the same as the other books. The men both have issues to sort out, they are very different to each other and in Raine's case, Eli is very different to the types of men he has dated in the past. They feel immediate attraction which turns to love, they have big decisions to make, they separate, they come back together and live happily ever after.The other guys on the farm make appearances, being supportive and offering advice and words of wisdom.Although not overly original in plot, this is a series of books which is good to read when you are looking for a story where people have problems that are sorted out with the help of good friends and true love wins in the end.The main issue I had with this book was how Jonah was portrayed. He is meant to be innocent and not used to the world outside the Amish community but at times he appeared too childlike. For example, some situations where he 'giggled' just seemed too childish. This was a concern I also had with how Eli was originally portrayed.There is also a story line of Raine being sought by the man who bashed him.. This had the potential to have some drama and excitement but seemed to fizzle out.One final recommendation...don't read this series of books back-to-back. Best to take a little break between each installment so that they seem fresher.3.5 stars
