Can you say exquisite! I loved every moment of this read! Check out this blurb!
To be blind is not miserable; not to be able to bear blindness, that is miserable. –John Milton
Charlotte Conroy, Juilliard-trained violinist, was on the cusp of greatness when tragedy swooped down on dark wings, crushing her hopes and breaking her heart. The music that used to sing in her soul has grown quiet, and she feels on the verge of setting down her violin for good. To pay the bills, she accepts a job as a personal assistant to a bitter, angry young man who’s been disabled by a horrific accident…
Noah Lake was an extreme sport athlete, journalist and photographer. He roamed the world in search of his next adrenaline high, until a cliff-dive left him in a coma. He awakes to find his career gone, his dreams shattered to pieces, his world an endless blackness that will never lift.
Charlotte begins to see that beneath Noah’s angry, brittle exterior is a young man in pain. She is determined to show him that his life isn’t over, that he has so much to live for, never dreaming that she would become the only light in his darkness, or that he would help her find the music in hers.
The life he knew is over. The life she wants is just out of reach.
Together, they must face their fears and rediscover what it means to really live.
From the absolute very beginning, I loved every aspect of this book. Charlotte is the example of starving artist. She is just trying to find a way to pay rent when she is asked to deliver a food order to a mystery man. He orders the same thing from her diner and this would be the first time. Of course instead of being grateful that someone would take the time out of their day to help him, the resident getting the food is a jerk to Charlotte by not giving a tip, She lets him know what she thinks of him, not too loudly though. This leads to a very lucrative job opportunity. She is supposed to care for a blind man, except he is an ass and doesn’t want the help.
Noah was an extreme sport reporter so when his last trip leads to him becoming permanently blind he is a bit pissed off at life. He is snappy with everyone who tries to help him, he doesn’t want to learn anything that would make his new life easier, and finally he has some killer freaking migraines. I mean legit killer.
I loved how they came together both having their own demons to battle and both able to understand even if it was just a bit how the other was feeling. I almost hated Noah at the end of this read, I did, but things worked out for the best and I am left smiling! 🙂
