I really liked Lauren and her determination to live her life on her own terms. Right now she can still see colors, and she’s able to use them to live her life fairly independently. That may or may not change by the time she loses her sight all together, but for now, she’s doing really well. Enter Gabe Briggs, the new neighbor. They officially meet when she goes to ask him not to do his hammering during office hours, as she’s on the phone with her patients and needs the quiet. He agrees without argument, which I thought was a nice change, then tries to finagle dinner with her. Lauren, however, wants no part of this, and turns him down, lying and telling him she has a boyfriend.
I didn’t feel like I got to know Gabe as well as I did Lauren, and that’s a shame. There was a lot going on in this guy’s past, and it just sprang up out of nowhere. There wasn’t even a hint of it earlier in the book. I think that was the biggest problem I had with this story. I felt like Lauren and Gabe’s relationship was one of convenience. Lauren goes to Gabe when her ex-husband shows back up and wants her back, and I felt like she would have gone to whoever lived next door. She obviously finds him attractive and knows it’s mutual, but I got the sense that if Gabe lived across town, she still would have gone next door.
There wasn’t a ton of heat to this one; most of the sex scenes faded to black. I thought it was an easy read, good for sitting outside on my deck in the spring, which is exactly where I read it. I will say however, I took a full star off of my rating for one specific plot point. That’s a completely personal issue, some people won’t care, but just, no.
Lauren is a relatable and complex character who absolutely deserved an amazing HEA, and watching her fight against and then reach for that goal was satisfying and dare I say, sigh-worthy. She had me laughing-out-loud with lines like: "Hence the reason she preferred to keep people with dangling parts at a distance," or "Stomping upstairs to her bedroom, she unzipped her oversized flannel onesie, created especially for women not interested in finding a man..."
Gabe's was also a great character. His development and growth unfolds in a natural way that speaks to Kishan Paul's skill in writing. Once Gabe realized his one-night-stand approach wasn't really what he wanted, he became a guy with genuine intentions that you had no choice but to root for (insert another sigh!).
The novel is written and paced very well -- it had me turning pages well into the night! It's also romantic, poignant, and the steamy scenes weren't the typical ones where everything is spelled out in the same old way, leaving nothing to the imagination (it's not a 'clean' romance though in case you're wondering). The intimate scenes were just arranged in a fresh way. Every emotion was well-balanced and not melodramatic at all. There wasn't any insta-love either, which is always a turn-off in books, and whatever instant attraction they had, progressed into something more in a realistic manner.
I loved how these two characters developed and grew, and I look forward to reading more from her in the future.
Oh, and Lauren's best friend Sunny? Loved her!!

They say love is blind but when that phrase was coined, it was not referring to blindness in the literal sense.Read more
