Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from Enticing Journey Book Promotions, the publisher, and the author.  I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.  I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255:  "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising".

Jensyn Parrish was one of the world’s most gorgeous supermodels, dubbed the “Perfect 10” for most of her career. Thirteen years ago, a horrific car accident left her face disfigured. Suffering the loss of her beauty, career, and self-worth, she seeks a life of quiet seclusion in Hawaii.

Lincoln Bass, a New York best-selling author and adrenaline junkie, has no idea what he could possibly have in common with his brother’s friend Jensyn. After suddenly being impaired with blindness at only twenty-five, his life is forever altered. Independent, headstrong, and ever the daredevil, Lincoln is stricken with the certainty that if he wants to continue writing, he needs help. 

Two people damaged by circumstances of fate… 

Disguising who she once was becomes a difficult task for Jensyn. Her only job is to help Lincoln finish his book. But boundaries are somehow obscured and fiction becomes their reality.

Jensyn Parrish gives the reader a very graphic description of what happened to her.  But things get turned around when she’s given a proposition.  In order for the book not to get too maudlin, the author lightens the mood and gives the reader a good chuckle.  And you will find that continues throughout.  If you need a book that’s going to have you laughing and forgetting the stress of your day then this is a good way to help with that.

Lincoln Bass has a bad case of self-pity.  Their beginning interactions will have you chuckling despite the fact that the scene seems serious.  This may seem a May/December relationship but Jensyn doesn’t really seem that much older than Lincoln – except when he’s acting like a jerk.  Don’t know whether he needs a spanking or a good swift kick in the butt.

This is a story that will heat your blood, make you feel sorry for both these people, and have you wishing that these two would realize that there’s more to life than what people perceive.  But even though we get to laugh a lot, you have to wonder what is hiding under all the joking around.  And you will enjoy discovering what that is.  It’s interesting to watch the changes that come to these two.  The only thing I didn’t look forward to was the ending – that meant my enjoyment was quickly coming to an end.  Some people don’t like reading a book that is told in the first person.  If that’s your only excuse for not reading this book you won’t know what you’re missing.
