Blind Love by Kishan Paul

Title:  Blind Love
Author:  Kishan Paul
Published:  June 2/15 by Samhain
Length:  260pgs
Genre:  contemporary romance
Shelf:  review
Back Cover Blurb:

She doesn’t need a hero. But a sexy Marine…that’ll work.

Though Lauren Baxter’s world is a blurry mess of colors, she has no tolerance for pity. With the help of her guide dog, Jack Sparrow, she’s built a good life for herself. She has everything she wants: her PhD, a thriving counseling practice and her independence.

When she meets her new neighbor, the man’s warm Texas accent and clean male scent weaken her knees. Her attraction to the former Marine is mutual and, unfortunately, a complication she doesn’t need.

Gabriel Briggs carries the weight of the world on his shoulders. He has his reasons for indulging only in short-term flings, but the feisty, green-eyed Lauren makes him want to forget every one.

In a rare moment of fragility, Lauren winds up in Gabe’s arms. One night together can’t break their self-imposed rules, right? But when a woman from Gabe’s past is murdered, the reasons he should have stayed away become painfully clear, threatening innocent lives he may not be able to save—especially Lauren’s.

Warning: Contains a blind therapist who doesn’t consider herself impaired; a meddling, erotic-novel-writing best friend; a hot ex-Marine with a shady past; and a loyal guide dog that howls “I love you” and is probably the sanest one of the bunch.

My Review:

This novel simultaneously makes you stop & think and gives you a sweet read that you can lose yourself in. Paul has masterfully crafted a tale of love, loss, and acceptance that encompasses and crosses the boundaries set by society and brings out those set by the heart. Her unique look at life and love creates a fantastic setting for this romantic and creative tale. The well written novel is highlighted by intricate descriptions that bring everything to life.

Paul’s characters are not only genuine but they’re fun as well. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know them. They are such strong individuals who struggle with life and everything that comes with it. Everyone is so unique & adds a great deal to the story. As much as I loved the main characters and how they were developed, but my enjoyment of the cast didn’t end there. I thoroughly enjoyed how the characters were developed from Lauren’s perspective. It gives a very different feel to the story and lets readers experience life in a different manner.

This is a sweet and poignant tale that captured my heart. I thoroughly enjoyed it and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to others.
