Blurb: Walking into Club Latitude, Micah Gideon is there as a favor to the club’s owner. He is not looking for a slave for the weekend. The last slave he played with ended up dead. When he sees Jimmy Monroe, his plan to spend the weekend drunk goes out the window. He wants the dark angel wearing a blindfold.
Jimmy Monroe has been blind since birth and wants a Master to share the weekend with. His best friend Rio comes up with the idea of the blindfold keeping his blindness a secret. When he is actually bought, Jimmy finds his dreams coming true. Until Master Micah calls out another man’s name in his sleep.
Will Micah be able to finally lay the past to rest? Will Jimmy find what he needs with Micah? Will the two men find their way out of the darkness?
Review: I am not normally a lover of BDSM; I’m not against it either, it’s just not one of my favorite tropes. However, I am a sucker for main characters with a disability, and especially if that character is blind or deaf. So, when I read the blurb for Blind Angel and realized the sub-slash-weekend-slave was a blind man who was trying to enter the BDSM scene without anyone knowing about his disability, I knew I had to read it.
This story was set up to be delicious. I loved how Heller, the club owner was so caring for the “slaves”, and the sad history that Micah was trying to lay to rest by trying to be a master again with his new weekend slave, and even how Jimmy was so excited about being judged based on his sub abilities instead of his blindness was everything that I hoped it would be. So, why not give a higher rating?
Basically, it was too short, too fast, and too underdeveloped to really get a grasp on the characters. I was expecting a little more when the blindness was revealed, and I just all around wanted more than an extended blurb posing as a story. What I did read I liked, but when it ended, I thought it was a mistake and I ended up just being disappointed and left wanting more.
Overall Impression: I liked it
