Blurb : To be blind is not miserable; not to be able to bear blindness, that is miserable. –John Milton Charlotte Conroy, Juilliard-trained violinist, was on the cusp of greatness when tragedy swooped down on dark wings, crushing her hopes and breaking her heart. The music that used to sing in her soul has grown quiet, and she feels on the verge of setting down her violin for good. To pay the bills, she accepts a job as a personal assistant to a bitter, angry young man who’s been disabled by a horrific accident … Noah Lake was an extreme sport athlete, journalist and photographer. He roamed the world in search of his next adrenaline high, until a cliff-dive left him in a coma. He awakes to find his career gone, his dreams shattered to pieces, his world an endless blackness that will never lift. Charlotte begins to see that beneath Noah’s angry, brittle exterior is a young man in a pain. She is determined to show him that his life isn’t over, that he has so much to live for, never dreaming that she would become the only light in his darkness, or that he would help her find the music in hers. The life he knew is over. The life she wants is just out of reach. Together, they must face their fears and rediscover what it means to really live.

Review : In an on a spur of the moment decision (Eyes closed finger I choose a page on my kindle and touched somewhere on a page) I was greeted with RUSH (City Lights #3) by Emma Scott. How fitting it was to find after a few pages that I choose blindly a book with a blind leading character. It was an interesting way to interpret the well known story of “the beauty and the Beast” and I honestly loved everything about this book. I had been on my kindle for a long time always neglected because of other urgent reads that needed to be read before release. And I can see now that this was a mistake.
This book is a must read.
I think it is a very honest vision of a person in Noah’s position. No sugarcoating
And Charlotte is just great.
