Amy Turner’s about to graduate from high school and all she wants is a job. Actually, all she wants is to find a way to pay for college. Amy certainly isn’t looking for love when she answers an ad to baby-sit a boy-she just needs the cash. But the job has a catch: The boy is blind…and he’s her age.

Tristan Edmund may be hot, but he doesn’t want Amy’s help. Or so he thinks. After being blinded in a horse show-jumping competition, Tristan spends his days in the dark, refusing to accept his disability. Much to his annoyance, Amy bursts into his life and drags him into the light. But just as the two begin to see something in each other, Tristan’s beautiful ex-girlfriend shows up. Will the temptation be too much, or will Tristan choose the girl who really sees him?


I have been wanting this book forever! When I finally received it, I dove right into the story!

Amy is hoping to get enough money saved up to go to college where she can intern for journalism.  She had been searching for job when she stumbles upon a babysitting ad. When she goes to the interview, she is stunned to find out that she will be helping a blind boy named Tristan who happens to be graduating from high school as well.  Tristan was blinded during a horseback riding accident and is having a hard time adjusting to being blind.  Amy takes the job since she is needing the money.

On the home front of Amy’s life, her brother has been gone for years.  When he suddenly reappears, at the worst time, it shifts some of the focus from the babysitting job to her personal life.  We get to glimpse into both plots of Amy’s life and actually get a taste of what she is going through.  Then we reach the next hurdle of Tristan’s ex girlfriend returning and trying to pick up where they left off. Tristan is being polite to her, but Amy feels that he is falling for her all over again.  Just when Amy thought they might be having a relationship bloom, his ex plots to win him back.

I couldn’t stand Tristan’s ex. She was a snotty brat who was only looking after herself.  I loved the romance between Tristan and Amy though. It was sweet and perfect for each one.  Even though the story could be a bit predictable, I still fell in love with this book.  That was the only problem I had with it really.  I read it in one hour and wanted more!  The ending was a perfect fit, and I hope the author will treat us to a follow up to this book!


Very Good! I would recommend this book! 4 STARS
