Kishan is a romance writer! She's also just awesome in general.
From her author page on Amazon:
Mother of two beautiful children, she has been married to her best friend for over 16 years. With the help of supportive family and friends, she balances her family, a thriving counseling practice, and writing without sinking into insanity.
Though Lauren Baxter’s world is a blurry mess of colors, she has no tolerance for pity. With the help of her guide dog, Jack Sparrow, she’s built a good life for herself. She has everything she wants: her PhD, a thriving counseling practice and her independence.
When she meets her new neighbor, the man’s warm Texas accent and clean male scent weaken her knees. Her attraction to the former Marine is mutual and, unfortunately, a complication she doesn’t need.
Gabriel Briggs carries the weight of the world on his shoulders. He has his reasons for indulging only in short-term flings, but the feisty, green-eyed Lauren makes him want to forget every one.
In a rare moment of fragility, Lauren winds up in Gabe’s arms. One night together can’t break their self-imposed rules, right? But when a woman from Gabe’s past is murdered, the reasons he should have stayed away become painfully clear, threatening innocent lives he may not be able to save—especially Lauren’s.
When you're looking for a light romance, I'd point to "Blind Love." It was so sweet and lovely overall.
Plus, I got to learn a little about the sight disorder mentioned in the novel. (And you all know I'm a big ol' nerd so I love a book that also teaches me something slightly obscure)
Twenty-eight-year-old Psychologist, Alisha Dimarchi, is abducted by an obsessed client and imprisoned in his Pakistani compound for over two years. Forced to change her name and live as his second wife, her life is filled with trauma and heartbreak. Thrust into a world of violence and oppression, Ally must fight not only to keep herself alive but to protect the lives of the people she now considers family. At night, she retreats into her memories of the only man she has ever loved – a man she believes no longer loves her.
Thirty-four-year-old handsome surgeon, David Dimarchi, has spent the last two years mourning the disappearance of his wife. After a painful and isolated existence, he begins the process of healing. It is then that he is visited by a stranger, who informs him that Ally is very much alive and needs his help. In a desperate attempt to save her, David enlists the help of a mercenary. Together they find themselves in the center of more than just a rescue mission. Will he be able to reach her in time and if he does, will she still want him?
This book....oh my god, this book.
I read this book in a single day. This isn't out of the ordinary for me. But it's the only book in a long time I kept wanting to put down because it was overwhelming but couldn't because I had to find out what happened next. I literally wrote to Kishan 30% of the way in and told her I felt like crying already. (And high-fived her virtually because she nailed it)
This book will reach into your soul and nest there for DAYS. Talk about major feels and angst.
The frightful topics are handled so well and I literally held my breath at some parts because I was caught up in the drama.
I'd call the ending a tentative happily-ever-after. You don't get a "and then everyone got better and everything is perfect" but a more realistic "and everyone started healing." I appreciated that SO MUCH.
But yeah....this book. [insert dramatic sigh]
