Nicki Adkins felt like a voyeur because of her neighbor, who was hot enough to be a model.  After finally gathering enough nerve to speak to him, Nicki still couldn’t get farther than awkward mailbox conversations.  Her fantasies were driving Nicki to take some very bold risks in getting him to notice her.

Being blind hasn’t hindered Sal Lopez’s career as a lawyer, but it did make people disregard him.  His perky neighbor was someone Sal was definitely interested in getting to know better.  Just the sound of her voice was giving Sal visions of family vacations in the future.  But, would it be fair to her to start a relationship with a blind man?

Something about Sal brought out the freak in Nicki and she was becoming bolder everyday.  She knew Sal couldn’t see her, but imagining him watching her was a turn on.  Nicki herself was shocked by the extent of her fetish for giving him private shows, even though Sal was clueless.  Sal gets a pleasant shock when he comes home one evening and that shock has him rethinking a relationship with Nicki.  Will embarrassment be the end before there’s a start?

Nicki and Sal wasted so much time dancing around each other because of fear and uncertainty.  Both of them were afraid to take a leap and act on the attraction they felt for the other.  I don’t think I’m over simplifying their situation by saying that Sal’s blindness wasn’t as big a problem to Nicki as it was to him. I admit I understood his reason and thought it was somewhat noble.   When the libido and the heart are both involved, any obstacle can be overcome.  Blind Passion is a great description of this couple’s relationship and what can happen when you stop thinking about things too much.  I enjoyed Nicki’s fearlessness and vulnerability and I know other women will relate to her on this level.  This story will have readers gasping like I did.
