Patience was not one of Belle Gregory’s virtues. So when she finds herself lying flat on her back in the sand with a tone male body on top of her, she curses her loss of sight. But the doctor’s say she will see again, a fact that has Adam Parker very worried. He has no choice but to live with the damage done to his face by a roadside bomb more than a year ago, but can Belle? Or will she see only the scars and not what’s in his heart?

Review:  The premise of this intrigued me enough to take a read.  While characters with physical limitations are showing up more often in books, it still isn’t the norm.  So, when I saw that the main female character is blind and the male lead is scarred, I was curious to see how it was going to play out.

The main problem with this book is it’s length.  There’s not enough time for the reader to get to know the characters, there’s not enough tension between Belle and Adam, and then the story just seems to resolve too easily. All that said, the book is well written and feels like a solid beginning to a story, ad one can only hope that the author will revisit this story and expand on it.
