It takes a while to know who you really are. And when you lose your way, sometimes it’s hard to find it again.
Charlie Hudson was on the verge of figuring that out when her dad—the only parent and friend she ever had—died suddenly. She was barely 18, and she was alone. So she went for easy—playing life safe, running away from a home that harbored nothing but bad memories and challenges and loving a man who would take her away from it all forever.
It’s funny how chance takes over when you need it most. And that’s exactly what brought Cody Carmichael into her life. A former motocross super star, Cody was now happy to be living the blue collar life, spending his days finishing up school and his nights under the hood of some classic car, just trying to keep everything his father taught him alive. Cody and Charlie were living parallel lives, until they finally collided. And the moment he smiled at her, Charlie knew he was the one who would change everything. But was she willing to take the risk?
Cody saw through it all. He saw her—all of her. But would letting him in be too much to take? And if Charlie let herself love him—really love him—could he love her back?
GINGER SCOTT HAS DONE IT AGAIN!!!!!
Ginger Scott, author of "Going Long" and "Waiting On The Sidelines," (The Waiting Series), has done it again! Ms. Scott has written another 5 out of 5 stars novel that is going to knock your socks off!
Charlie Hudson is a young college student who lost her father in a horrible way when she was barely 18 years old. Cody, is a former motocross star who is now living a blue collar life at 23 and attending college. They meet in her third year of college when Charlie goes to a much needed tutoring session for her Calculus class. Cody, like Charlie, lost his father at a young age.
I hated every time I had to put the book away to go to work or to work on something else. Had I been able to stay up all night for just one night, I'd have read the entire book in one sitting. This book will capture your heart that quickly.
I fell in love with Charlie and Cody as soon as they met each other. Charlie is unsure of who she is in many ways but she's lovable because she knows she's unsure and she's seeking to find out who she is. Cody is the type of guy you'll want for a potential mate or if you already have a permanent mate in your life, you'll want him to be more like Cody. But he's got his own issues too.
You'll meet Gabe and Jessie as well. Gabe is Cody's friend from childhood and although not blood related, he's Cody's brother. Jessie is Gabe's girlfriend who befriends Charlie and she's, well, she's much different than Charlie. I have a best friend who is a lot like Jessie and I loved her character but Jessie is a character you'd want as your friend too. Jessie is, for all intent and purposes, Cody's sister.
Ms. Scott has written characters that are honest, lovable and so incredibly real. I love that Cody is sensitive but retains every single stitch of his raw, macho, manliness. I also love that Charlie may not seem to be as tough as Jessie but when she needs to, she cans stand up for herself.
There is one scene which I'll only describe as starting out in the rain when Charlie walks out of a club. From the start of that scene all the way through to its end, I found tears streaming down my face. It was really that beautifully written. I could feel the emotions expressed by Charlie and Cody the entire time. An emotional connection like that from a novel is so incredibly foreign to me. Ms. Scott now holds the distinction of being the only author who has been able to evoke that kind of emotional reaction from me while reading a novel. Twice.
I connected with Charlie quite a bit but mostly when she spoke to her dad. My own father died in a manner incredibly similar to Charlie's father and I speak to my father as well when I need it. And you will find out why Charlie is still so raw about her father's death even after three years have gone by.
The relationships in "Blindness" are stunning! Buy one for yourself and one for a friend!
I love this book. I have liked every book that I have read by Ginger Scott so far. This book is AMAZING!!❤️❤️❤️
