Valentine’s Day is approaching and Tori signs a five-year modeling contract with a high-end perfume manufacturer. The ink isn’t even dry when she’s thrown through the windshield in a horrific car accident. Despite a deep laceration to her face, the doctors say it’s a miracle she’s alive.

Tell that to a Dallas girl who was on her way to becoming America’s next top model.
With her funds dwindling, Tori scans the classifieds for a job. Preferably, one that doesn’t require a pretty face to sustain a decent wage. One ad stands out among the others. A Personal Assistant to the blind son of an oil tycoon. What more could she ask for?

Tori didn’t expect her new boss to be witty, buff and extremely handsome. Mark didn’t expect to be captivated by his new assistant’s gutsy mindset. When his eyesight is restored, will Tori still be the desirable woman he envisioned? Or, will tragedy strike twice for the ex-model?

 

Review: It was a cute concept, but I think there were too many things going on for the short length of the story. It ended up feeling slightly rushed. There were many “coincidences,” misunderstandings and a case of almost insta-love. If you enjoy that, it’s the perfect quick read for you.

I had a great sense of who Mark was. From how he dealt with his unexpected blindness to the sort of man he felt he “needed” to be for any significant other he hoped to have. I didn’t always agree with him, but I understood where he was coming from. I didn’t get that from Tori. Her backstory felt very glossed over, along with her personality.  I also didn’t believe their romance.

If you’re looking for a cute, quick read, with little depth. It’ll fit the bill.
