Since a mugging a year ago, Ben’s lived with blindness. Despite an art career on hold and a deadbeat boyfriend who left him because of his disability, he’s finally getting his life back on track. Ben is gaining a new sense of independence thanks to his guide dog, Colt.
But Ben’s carefully balanced life is thrown into chaos when veterinarian Dr. Jay Connor hits Colt with his car. While Colt is on the mend and recovering nicely, Ben finds that Jay is not only fond of Colt, but also quite interested in Ben.
However, one overheard conversation might put a stop to their romance before it can grow into something more. Maybe Ben’s destined to go it alone in the dark. Or can Jay help him see there’s still a chance for happily ever after?
Ben is starting his life over after a life changing mugging that left him blind. He is bonding with his new guide dog, Colt. Ben is an artist who prior worked with paints, now unable to do this, is sculpting. Ben with Colt’s help, is attempting to regain his independence.
Dr. Jay Connor is a veterinarian who accidently hits Colt with his car. Jay pushes to spend more time with Ben and get to know him. Jay was a hard character to get to know since the story was so short.
The connection between Jay and Ben is powerful. I loved how Jay pushes Ben out of his comfort zone. Jay did not care that Ben was blind, and I loved that he treated him with respect and did not try to take over and direct Ben, only help him. He respected Ben’s want to be independent.
I found this book well written with a unique plot. The main characters and the secondary characters were interesting. At 47 pages, this book had a well-defined beginning, middle, and end. Overall, this was a very fascinating book and I hope to see these characters again in the future.
