Alana isn't a big fan of the band Reckless Beat, but her best friend Kate is, so the duo go to an exclusive performance to see them. When the guys are onstage Alana locks eyes with the guitarist and a few sparks begin to fly. When they meet up after the concert, an incident occurs which leaves Alana relying on Mitchell to help her and she stays close by him for support.
Alana has lived a somewhat secluded life; she is an innocent and sweet girl that doesn’t have many friends. She has been sheltered by her mother and is now trying new experiences for herself. You can see that she is vulnerable but she has learned a lot about life and doesn’t find it easy to trust people. I really liked her, and considering what happened in the start she adapted quickly to her predicament.
Each time Mitchell learnt more about Alana, you could see him falling for her. He has never had these feelings for a woman before and finds it a little strange. But the more time they spend together – even though Alana can't see him – their chemistry escalates. He was a bit of a player before, but I think it was easier to be like that, but when he is with Alana he treats her with so much respect and care. He is such a nice guy, but on occasion I wanted to jump on in there and give him a piece of my mind! Thank God he has Blake!!
I liked how Blind Attraction played out. Both characters appear to have genuine chemistry and I liked to watch their feelings and relationship develop. There is a side story which affects Alana’s personal life that puts an extra twist into the book and definitely gives it more emotional depth. The bedroom scenes are scorching and one in particular had me fanning myself. There are other characters that we meet as well that played great roles in the book and one in particular, Blake, I love and I can't wait to see more of him. Eden Summers has a writing style that I found easy to follow and she builds the world so you feel like you are actually there looking in. I am looking forward to reading more from this remarkable Aussie Author!!
When I read that line I knew I was going to love this book. It made me laugh and wonder how many times poor Mitch has been groped hard. Eden's rockers are hot!! I mean scorching. As soon as I finished Blind Attraction I sent Eden a message saying she needed to write faster as I couldn't wait to read the next four books. It ranks easily in my Top 10 books of 2013. I decided since I loved this book so damn much I was going to do my review a little differently.
Here are my Top 5 reason why I loved Blind Attraction.
5) Five hot rockers!! I mean seriously who doesn't love a hot man who can play an instrument, and this book has five! I'm sure you will have a favorite one by the time the books ends and then you can help me bug her to write faster.
4) The Car scene. It was so funny. I laughed till I cried. *Warning: Do Not have a full bladder when you read this scene.* Sean will melt your heart in this scene and you will never want to ride with Mitch. (yes I know he is fictional and you couldn't ride with him but that is beside the point.)
3) When Blake meets Alana's Mom. It was even funnier than the car scene. It was one hell of a first impression. I highly doubt Blake will even forget it and I know I won't. I read it twice because I thought it was so damn funny. It was unlike any scene I had read before.
2) The Voyeur scene!! Holy crap this book has one of the hottest voyeur scenes I have ever read. It was beautifully written and I think my Kindle hasn't fully recovered from the hotness yet. I did cheer Alana on during the whole scene!
1) Mitch and Alana's Story. It was beautiful story that just pulled you in from the beginning. It has its' ups and downs. It has some very somber parts and yet some extremely hilarious parts that keep it balanced. I expected it to be good but I didn't expect it to blow me away.
Eden Summers' Blind Attraction is just the latest in a string of romance novels I've been trying on for size. It follows a relatively normal and familiar formula: good, sheltered girl falls in with someone unexpected. Tropes like this are hit or miss for me and while I didn't hate Blind Attraction, I wasn't all that fond of it, either.
And while I'm sure it's found its audience and a steady fan base, it just wasn't for me. I felt bored a good chunk of the time despite liking the main characters. Eden Summers' prose is a solid departure from the genre but at the end of the day, I kept walking away from the story and lacked investment in it.
There were multiple times when I thought I wouldn't finish the story and found myself skipping certain parts in it when I couldn't focus.
Which is kind of rare for me. Despite its familiar formula, there were a lot of qualities to it that made it stand out and helped nudge me in the direction of the ending. I liked the idea of spreading your wings and branching out. The romance was merely okay. There were quite a few of steamy moments that made my eyebrows quirk and I appreciated that, but at the end of the day some of it felt very outdated or disinteresting. Blind Attraction was the kind of novel I picked up on a whim and ended up wanting it to be more than it actually was.
Do I think fans of NA will love it? Completely. I think it hits the right marks for fans of the genre and those who want a romantic escape. But other than that, I wasn't quite into it. Personally, it won't ever be my cup of tea and I won't check into any sequels out of lack of interest--but I may revisit Eden Summers writing one day.
