Susan Mac Nicol has done a stellar job of depicting a man struggling to regain his sense of self-worth. She developed a somewhat similar theme in [book:Love You Senseless|23350137], so I was confident of a well researched experience. It's not a depressing story, in spite of the tragedy. Nate does move forward with learning the skills he needs but has little faith that he can practice his art. Much of the book follows his recovery, his struggle to overcome doubts about ever being independent, and dealing with additional personal and emotional troubles. He doesn't wallow in it or throw pity parties, so the story develops an uplifting storyline.
Cody is a marvelous character, who has his own burdens to bear where Nate is concerned. He owns an art gallery and with that expertise, as well as knowing Nate for so long, believes he can eventually return to creating his art. It's an uphill battle at times but Cody has such a positive outlook and patient disposition. The secondary characters are done well, including Suzanne (hmm, wonder where that name came from), Nate's therapist/trainer for the blind. I like having a strong, positive female representation in a MM book. There's also Dev and Blu, who have less predominant roles but still add needed elements. Unfortunately there's also homophobic parents creating heartbreak and trouble.
The story is also far less steamy than most of Susan's books. It detracts nothing from the story and I honestly didn't miss extra scenes. It did have lots of love and warmth with wonderfully developing friendships. I can recommend this for lovers of second chances and hurt/comfort.
‘Sight Unseen’ is one of those rare stories that transcend the characters portrayed in them. The two main characters, Cody and Nate, are two young men flawed by their pasts, unsure of themselves and the people around them. More importantly, for much of the book, they deny the feelings they’ve had for each other for the last twelve years, and the secrets that have kept them apart. This book, while a M/M romance, could work well in any type of romance fiction. The story is universal: a friend in trouble and the best friend coming to help steer him (or her) through the rough patches, both harboring feelings for the other but unable or afraid to express them, until the truth comes out and they wonder what took them so long. A must read for anyone who is a romantic at heart.
Loved the language, loved the story, and loved the way life goes on, only differently.
So happy to see that there were no quick fixes, and no miraculous come backs, only a hard-earned struggle to make life work again.
Kudos, author, you did a great job. We need more books like this one.
Simply loved it.
