Review By Sky - Blind Passion, by Bonnie Dee

Blind Passion, by Bonnie Dee
Leah Schaeffer has come a long way since an accident took her sight. She’s finally ready for independence, but convincing her wealthy parents she’ll be safe on her own isn’t easy. The first night in her own place at last, she encounters her neighbor with the midnight velvet voice and her world shifts again.

Since finishing a military tour, J.D. Wyatt has struggled both financially and emotionally. When Leah’s parents hire him to act as her bodyguard, he seizes the opportunity. The catch—she can’t know she’s being followed. As he grows closer to the intriguing woman and begins to have feelings for her, the burden of this secret grows heavier. 

Although Leah and J.D. have suffered different types of trauma, their mutual understanding of each other’s pain bonds them. But their relationship, dependent on absolute trust, is rooted in lies which will detonate like an IED when exposed.

This is a beautiful story of two broken people; one of which is physically broken and the other mentally. When the two come together by a stroke of serendipity, they fill each other’s voids with the little pieces that they have left.
J.D.Wyatt, a returning war vet diagnosed with PTSD, first met our main character, Leah Schaeffer, at a club. She won’t remember seeing him there with his friends and hers because little does he know, she’s blind. I absolutely love how determined Leah is to be independent despite her new disability. She won’t let the car wreck destroy her life like it had done on her eyes.
Her parents aren’t happy about her decision to move out on her own, but they go along with it anyhow—but on their terms. Out of the goodness of their hearts but to Leah’s unknowing dismay, they have hired someone to watch over her covertly and have paid rent for the apartment room next to hers so that he can be nearby at all times.

You will be floored when you read who it is!

J.D. wants to show Leah how much he cares, but he struggles to be honest to her with who he is, and what he has done. But as they say, love conquers all and even through their toughest obstacle, they arise stronger than ever before.
Bonnie does a fantastic job with portraying someone who has lost their site and try to cope with the world around them and their relationships. It’s almost like she brought two guardian angels together and they gave each other the strength where the other one lacked. This is most definitely a story with a happy ending and I cannot wait to read the next in the series! So many great, vibrant characters who will pull you deeper into the story to see the main characters from a wider scope.

This is my first Bonnie Dee read and I am so excited to say that I am immediately picking up a few more reads from her other works!
