Looks are deceiving
This was a great story. Main characters were both nicely developed they both had depth. Two people appeared broken based on society's definition of normal. But they were in fact extremely strong, determined, resilient and passionate. There is a scene where Noah is attacked and his fear of blindness goes into play and I could almost feel his emotions. Well done!
Ce livre n'est simplement pas pour moi. Tout se passe trop vite. Je n'arrive pas à m'attacher aux personnages. Je me suis arrêtée à 40% de la lecture. Pourtant, j'avais été séduite par le résumé.

Very sweet, very romantic, I really liked that BOTH protagonists were disabled. More boxing content would not have been amiss!!!!
3.5 to 4 stars. This wasn't a bad book. I did like the romance and the boxing connection, and writing style was good minus the need for further editing. The storyline had some minor issues, and a tendency for background characters to drop off the page never to be heard from again. One was supposedly Noah's best friend at the college but she fades into nothingness about halfway through. Another was the person who supposedly encouraged the scheme surrounding Noah. That person is mentioned once, bu ...more
