As a stunningly attractive man and the owner of a successful chain of auto repair garages, Trevor is used to attention, adoration, and getting what he wants. What he wants tends to be passionate, no-strings-attached flings with men he meets in clubs. He doesn’t expect anything different when he sets his sights on James. Imagine his surprise when the charm that normally brings men to their knees fails to impress. Trevor will need to drop the routine and connect with James on a meaningful level. He starts by offering to take James home instead of James riding home with his intoxicated friend.
For James, losing his sight at a young age meant limited opportunities for social interaction. Spending most of his time working at a school for the blind has left him unfamiliar with Trevor’s world, but James has fought hard for his independence, and he knows what he wants. Right now, that means stepping outside his comfort zone and into Trevor’s heart.
Trevor is also open to exploring real love and commitment for a change, but before he can be the man James needs him to be, he’ll have to deal with the pain of his past.
This was a very enjoyable story. Trevor has avoided emotional entanglement since losing his lover at 19 while James has never really had the chance to find a lover who wanted him for him. They both have to get over their assumptions and past relationships to open up their hearts.
Trevor is confused when James doesn’t respond like other men when they meet at the club but he can’t keep his eyes off of him. When he discovers James is blind his fascination with the man only grows. James has been pretty sheltered since becoming blind as a kid and is unsure of Trevor, but after talking with him feels that he is someone he could trust.
This story is told from both characters’ point of view so we are able to see their thoughts and feelings. It makes it easy to understand the doubts each have but Trevor’s story is still kept pretty secret till near the end of the book. It was nice to see James learn that his first impressions aren’t always the truth and sometimes he may have to ask to understand someone’s actions. Trevor keeps his feelings a bit more to himself but can show James physically how he feels, I loved seeing James break through his protective layers with his patience and love.
Cover art by LC Chase is absolutely wonderful and perfect for this story.
