      Love Means… Renewal is the newest in the Farm / Love Means… series and while short at only 56 pages, I loved revisiting Eli and Geoff along with all the wonderful people that live and love there. As the blurb says, Eli is the recipient of someone's hate when he is accused of an abuse crime and then becomes ill. Watching as he and Geoff struggle with all the demands of work, business, family, and poisoning was heart wrenching at times.In the end, Andrew shines as always when he reminds us tha [...]

      Alright - I admit it. I am addicted to these stories. Is there a support group for that??? I got my Dreamspinner notice today that it was out so of course I had to buy it. This story takes us back to our original couple from the first book, Eli and Geoff. They have been together for some time now and have multiple business enterprises and a young son to raise. Things are getting pretty hectic and they seem to have very little time for each other. Then Eli gets sick and it seems that it is more t [...]

      I absolutely love the Love Means… or as this author’s fans call it, ‘The Farm stories’. Andrew Grey’s stories have heart and I was absolutely thrilled to revisit with the main characters that kicked this series off in LOVE MEANS…NO SHAME. Geoff and Eli have a special place in my heart and I adored seeing these two again. The writing is tight and the story moves like lightening in a bottle, full of sparks, flashes of light and volatile energy. The reader is transfixed as we find out t [...]

      Sometimes, you just want to go some place comfortable. And I always enjoy a trip to Laughton Farms. Geoff and Eli are two of my favorite characters.Here's the short blurb. Eli is feeling overworked and longing for a little more Geoff time. Finally, everything catches up to him. Eli gets sick and has to be hospitalized, but maybe there's more to it than that.I chose this story because I really enjoy the Love Means series. Plus, I've been a little busy in my own life. I think I needed a little men [...]

      I adore this series! It's one of my favs of Andrew's. I teared up so many times during this story. I felt Eli's pain and despair of being over-worked and not being able to have just one moment of intimacy with Geoff. If it's not their jobs and Jakey, it's outside forces working against them both to keep them apart. I think all of us, who have partners/spouses can relate to these two. And the moral of this story, that we need to stop and smell the roses, so to speak, is a good one to adhere to.

    • Andi Anderson says:

      I love this series and I was thrilled to read another book about Eli and Geoff. I've adored them since I met them in the first book! As a reader, I really appreciate watching how all of these characters have evolved since the series started. As a writer, I'm insanely jealous of him! This series is one of my favorites and I can't wait to see what he comes up with next.

      These men have built a life for themselves. They have also built a farm as well that supports not only themselves but other people as well. But as so often happens in life both get so busy they loose sight of each other. But when there is a threat it helps both men see how much they mean to each other and work at getting back what is really important.

    • Lisa Lambson says:

      Love MeansRenewal is a novella that lets us get a peek back into Eli and Geoff's life and see how it is going. Also, it introduces us to Tyrone, a new worker on the farm. The farm is quite busy with new therapy sessions running all the time. Eli and Geoff have little time to themselves. The work seems never ending and their 3 year old Jakey wants and deserves a great deal of their attention.  Add in the fact that someone is trying to make them look bad by accusing Eli of being inappropriate wit [...]

      About 2 years ago, I kept hearing about a fabulous and uplifting series of M/M Romance titles by Andrew Grey. They were officially known as the “Farm” series (at least on ), but they are more colloquially known as the “Love Means” series. I think they may have been officially rebranded as such, whatever. Love Means Patience is the 10th title in the series (7th major work with 3 minor works). We once again visit the Laughton farm and many of the heroes from previous installments. You don [...]

      Sometime is nice to have an insight on what is happening after the happily ever after; not that you want for the couple to break up or similar, but that little window in their future is usually nice and warming. For Eli and Geoff is exactly like that.I admit I haven’t read all the series, so I didn’t know Eli and Geoff adopted a little kid, Jackie. It was a nice surprise to see them as daddies, and Jackie seems really a cute kid, very loving and loved as well. Even if Eli, currently, is very [...]

    • Adara says:

      This was a follow-up to Geoff and Eli's story, Love Means Courage, several years (and lots of changes) down the road. You don't really have to read the books in between if you don't want to, though there will be characters you haven't met from those books. (Robbie, Adelle, Arie, and Duane.) There's also a new character in Tyrone. His story is the next one in the series after this one, Love Means No Limits.This story is of Geoff and Eli reconnecting with each other when their daily lives seem to [...]

    • Nic says:

      I intentionally chose to read this book. I had a craving for a sweet story following a known formula. However this book did not focus on a new couple, rather was about how busy and overworked Eli and Geoff were. Eli gets sick and this forces them to realise they need to take more time to themselves. Yes it was sweet but it was also a bit boring. With the other books in the series, although following the same formula (men from different backgrounds meet, they are trying to sort out their own issu [...]

    • Barb ~rede-2-read~ says:

      This was a nice follow-up to the lives of Geoff and Eli, the MCs who are the foundation of the Farm series. Eli has been ill and the police suspect that it's not a case of simple food poisoning. Both Eli and Geoff are overworked and stressed and can't seem to find time for one another. That problem is ultimately resolved when they realize how precious every day is and how much they mean to each other. They commit to making the time, not only on a daily basis, but to an annual vacation with their [...]

      A quick, easy, feel good read.A story in a series, so some of the minor characters were in place from their stories with no background so were hard to place, but the 2 m/c's were easy to get into, getting hints of how they got to this place.  Their story is about the HEA after the HEA! Learning to deal with the pressures of living their lives. Incidents of hate crime thrown in to add extra pressure all lead to a better relationship.An enjoyable short story - good lunch time read to put a smile [...]

      This is Geoff and Eli 10 years later. They have adopted Jakey who is 3 yo. Their life is super busy and doesn't allow a lot of time for each other. When Eli is hospitalized Geoff realizes how things need to change. I loved how Eli and Geoff are with Jakey, they're great dad's just like they wanted to be. Andrew Grey does such a great job of introducing his new characters. The new farmhand plays an important part in this story. Even though its small. I hope theres more of his story in an upcoming [...]

    • Becky Condit says:

      I liked this short story but would love to see the Farm Series expanded again with new characters, a new plot line? You never know exactly what to expect from Andrew Grey and I will continue to keep him and his books on auto buy. A great writer who creates great characters and sweet relationships never gets old.Please see my complete review 7/16/2012 at mrsconditreadsbooks/index.

      Eli and Geoff have made a great life for themselves on the ranch. Eli's responsibilities, however, seem to be wearing him down. He is practically falling over with exhaustion. Eli and Geoff need to reassess their priorities and decide what the most important things in their lives are. This was a cute story but it was really short and a little underdeveloped. I enjoyed it overall and it was a nice addition to the series.

    • Christy says:

      This is a wonderful short story that brings us back to Geoff and Eli. Ten years have passed since they first fell in love. The farm has grown much larger, the amount if work has doubled with all of their responsibilities and they their son whom they adopted.Needless to say they are tired and not spending the time with each other like they should. This story reminds us of how important our loved ones are.

    • Phaney says:

      2012 Review:Out of all the short stories attached to this series, this one actually got me interested. It’s not a very happy story because Eli’s in a bad position in more ways than one, but we finally got his perspective. Every one of the other eleven protagonists had their viewpoint but never Eli, who arguably remains one of the main characters throughout all of the books. So this? I liked! ^_^

    • Frostina Frostina says:

      This book really touched a note in my heart! how relationships seen to reach a plateau and we take everything and the other person for granted how we stop working on it just because we are sure it is there! Geoff and Eli are stretched thin, and its just ironic how it was another visit to the hospital that made them see what was important in their lives. Loved every moment of it. These two boys are just TOO close to the heart. Thanks AG for the lovely read.

    • Seiran says:

      This story takes us back to our original couple from the first book, Eli and Geoff. They have been together for some time now and have multiple business enterprises and a young son to raise. Things are getting pretty hectic and they seem to have very little time for each other. Then Eli becomes ill, and is accused of misbehavior with a child. All is not what it seems. I really like this series.

    • Stacey Jo says:

      It was nice, after 8 books in the series, 9 if you count the short story at about 2.5, to see one that again focuses on Geoff and Eli. And being married, with two jobs and two young childre, I can really empathize with poor Eli. A little bit of a tear jerker. This series continues to be excellent. Always looking forward to the next one.

    • Angela says:

      It was really good to see them reconnect. I would've liked to have seen more effort from Geoff, though. It seemed like one overture and everything was fixed. Also it would've been nice to have Geoff's POV while Eli was sick. To be honest he really wasn't written devastated enough for how direly ill Eli took. His POV would've helped there.

    • Jewel says:

      I loved getting to visit Geoff and Eli again as main characters. Their story is still my favorite in this series and I love to see that after so many years they are still happy. I'm sentimental like that.This story also introduces Tyrone, who is one of the MC's of the following book.I do love this series, and I hope it continues for a long while.

    • Neet says:

      This is the 5.5 novella in the Love Means series.In this little gem we find the couple who started it all, Geoff and Eli. Eli is the subject of untrue rumors and then is poisoned.Geoff's protective streak comes in full force when he's determine to keep from harm Eli and Jakey and find out who did this.Short and sweet and indeed a good read!

    • jules0623 says:

      Eli and Geoff were my favourite couple so I was so pleased to revisit them here. I did wish the storyline was more suspenseful instead of going the CSI/Law and Order route where everything is wrapped up with a nice little bow at the end of an hour, but it was lovely to see the boys again.

    • Vfields Don't touch my happy! says:

      I like this series but I really don't like the way Andrew Grey writes kid characters. That's why I stopped reading them. Jakie makes my teeth hurt. It was pleasant to see some of my boys again. This time around someone is out to hurt Eli.
