Kristen didn't want to be set up on a blind date with her best friend's brother Chase but her friend needed her to. To make it worse, it was a double date. But then Margo tells her that her brother is blind-literally. What's a girl going to do? She is leaving the next day and she hasn't told anyone where she's going or when she will be back. She decides to go and ends up having a great time. Kristen leaves the next day and the search is on for Chase.
I really liked this story by debut author Becca Jameson. It was fresh, highly sensual and I liked Chase and Kristin. Chase didn't let his blindness depress him and he got on with his life. Ms. Jameson handled Chase's disability with humor and grace. The subtleness of her descriptions and the reactions from Chase and Kristen were perfect. Once they got to his apartment, it is no hold's bar on the intense attraction. The scenes in Chase's apartment are highly sensual and very emotional.
The pacing, characterizations and the chemistry between Kristen and Chase are believable and sweet. My one compliant is that the story is a little short for me. I would have liked the ending to be a little bit longer. Trust me the ending is not be missed. Might have tissues handy.
I look forward to reading more from Becca Jameson in the future. Great job and maybe a story for Margo.
