Artist Arik Bosler is terrified he might have lost his creative gift in the accident that left his hand badly burned. When he's offered the chance to work with renowned artist Ken Brighton, Arik fears his injury will be too much to overcome.
He travels to Pleasanton to meet Ken, where he runs into the intimidating Reg Thompson. Reg, a biker who customizes motorcycles, is a big man with a heart of gold who was rejected by most of his family. Arik is initially afraid of Reg because of his size. However, it's Reg's heart that warms Arik's interest and gets him to look past the exterior to let down his guard.
But Arik soon realizes that certain members of Reg's motorcycle club are into things he can't have any part of. Reg can't understand why Arik disappears, until he learns Arik's injury was the result of his father's drug activity. Though neither Reg nor Arik wants anything to do with drugs, the new leadership of Reg's club might have other ideas.

Excellent narration elevates this earnest story
The voice talent of Greg Tremblay breathes life into each character, giving them such unique qualities dialog tags are rarely necessary. His delivery is never static and it's geared to listeners who can absorb the spoken word at normal listening speeds.
This is a fairly standard MM romance, the 6th in the Senses series, and is representative of many other Andrew Gray titles.
Greg Tremblay makes almost seamless adjustments when moving from one character voice to another, as well as using a clear, concise narrative delivery. His talent elevates the content above cliches and formulaic storytelling.
Love Comes to Light is a lovely, and quite earnest, tale of learning to accept the limitations life sometimes lays down, and then finding ways to overcome those barriers, to live in the moment fully and completely. Thematically, the story focuses heavily on family, on the interconnectedness of friends and strangers, and on giving second chances in the face of perceived failures.
Over all Love Comes to Light is definitely a feel good homage to family and enablement. The ending is as expected and quite satisfying. The small plot gaps, the formulaic style, and the clichés are easily overlooked in this audiobook version because the narrator breathes so much life into the characters.
