As soon as I read the blurb stating that the hero was blind I knew I had to get this book. It was different to any other contemporary romance book I've ever read or listened to. It's a sweet romantic story that was so well written. Both the hero and the heroine had gone through trauma and sadness and it includes enough details to make it bearable.
I loved loved loved this book so much!!! I spent seven hours of my day listening to the story from beginning to end. I just could not put it down. The way the romance slowly develops is amazing. The best first kiss scene by far. EVER! I just loved Cole! I don't want to give spoilers because every little surprise this story has is worth discovering on your own. I'm just amazed that this is the first and only book by Darcy Daniel. I sure hope she writes many many more.
Narration: Eva Kaminsky did a wonderful job with this story. It was set in Australia and I could tell that the accent was different. Each character had a different voice and she added the extra sweetness and intensity that a story about a first powerful love deserves. It's definitely worth a credit or even full price!!

STORY (contemporary romance) - This story is set in present day Australia. The female lead (Anthea) is a successful actress and the male lead (Cole) is a blind farmer. She comes to his farm so she can prepare to audition for a role as a farmer's wife. She lies about who she is because (a) he's blind and won't know and (b) she tormented him in school as a child because he was a poor farm boy. But he's also deceiving her because he knows who she really is. Anyway, it's complicated, but they begin a relationship.
And what a relationship it is!! Cole has never had a girlfriend before because he never leaves his farm, but he listens to romance novels so he knows how women like to be loved and treated. He's so gentle and sweet and romantic I think I'm in love with him! The only reason I didn't rate the book a five is because I wasn't crazy about the first part. You have to wait for it a little, but it's worth it in the end.
PERFORMANCE - The narrator has a lovely voice and does a good job. Her Australian accent is refreshingly different.
OVERALL (actual rating 4.5) - There's a couple pretty sexy scenes, but they're very sweet and not overly explicit. I don't recall any bad language. This is definitely a feel-good book for those who enjoy sweet romances with awesome endings.
