After a kayaking accident took Josh Donald's sight, he's faced with learning to negotiate the world as a blind man. In short order, his boyfriend leaves him behind, making it clear he's not inclined to deal with special needs. Reeling from the blow, Josh flounders. In an attempt to help, Josh's friends take him to a camp for the blind, where he falls for the camp organizer, Charlie Cooper.
Charlie seems to feel the attraction too, but when a horse named Dottie pushes them into a hot first kiss, Charlie resists. He believes he's damaged goods, not boyfriend material. Since the accident, Josh has faced tough obstacles, but the most challenging hurdle of all may be getting Charlie to open up and take a chance on love.

Had some MAJOR issues with this one

Too many issues for me
I loved the premise of this story - two guys with similar disabilities finding love in spite of the things that hold them back. Should have been great.
As an avid MM romance reader, I couldn't connect with either of the main characters. The expression "chicks with d*cks" gets thrown around from time to time, but even that doesn't work in this situation. It's offensive to chicks. I have never met a guy in my life: straight, gay, or otherwise, who acts like the MCs in this story. They emote EVERYTHING. No feeling can go unexpressed. The purple prose is excruciating.
What annoyed me the most is that with a LOT of editing (I can't blame Dreamspinner Press for this one, the story needed a rewrite more than an editor) it could have been good. The characters were well rounded, the plot moved along at a decent enough pace. It was just so contrived. Painful to listen to, despite the fair effort of the narrator.
Give this one a miss.
