#SightUnseen #MMRomance #FriendstoLovers

Tragedy brings together a reserved but brilliant sculptor and an outgoing gallery owner, friends whose love was sidetracked but was always meant to be deeper.


SoCal natives, Nate and Cody have been friends since childhood. Both knew they were different—and the same. At seventeen, a stolen weekend in the Florida Keys drove their connection deeper and hotter than either could imagine. They were meant to be together. Then, for reasons only Nate knows, suddenly they weren’t.

They’re still friends. Best friends. But they’ve moved on and found other partners. The yearning remains, however, despite the long-ago secret that drove them apart, when tragedy strikes, both men find themselves in the dark. They must grope their way back to who and what they are…which they will find in each other’s arms. Sometimes, losing one’s sight can open one’s eyes—and heart.

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

A hit and run accident leaves Nate blind and his best friend Cody steps up to try to keep things as normal as they can be. When Nate's boyfriend dumps him, he has his memories to keep him going. But the memories aren't of him and Jon. Nope, they are of a weekend long ago, that he spent with Cody. One that he never ever forgot. Being deprived of his sight means that Nate picks up those little touches from Cody, the hitches in his voice. Could Cody be remembering too? Cody never forgot that weekend, no sir. Never stopped loving Nate and resigned himself to the friend zone, which was way better than the no Nate zone. But when Jon walks out, it all comes front and centre. Cody can only hope that Nate will finally see just how much he loves him.

I'd like to commend M Mac Nicol on several points.

1. She is a native British writer and usually writes about British characters in places around Britain, and uses English words and spellings. Nate and Cody are native born Californians and so use AMERICAN words and spellings. It pisses me off no end with American authors have British characters using American words that we would never use. HERE??? Ms Mac Nicol uses AMERICAN words and spellings. I noticed this. I really did. And the author worked hard to get it right, and I say she nailed it! Of course, she had help from Nicholas Downs 😊

2. I don't usually care for books written in the first person and I will make no apology for marking a book down written as such. THIS book is written in the first person, from both men's point of view. And I didn't care.  I KNEW going in, it was written like this and maybe that's why it did not bother me. I think for THIS book, it's right and proper to be written this way.

3. This book came with a warning, of sorts, in that it carries a "less sex than I usually write" warning. Which did make me chuckle when I had finished! Because, let me tell ya, once Cody and Nate get their act together and finally give in to what they are both feeling, it is HOT. OFF. THE. CHARTS! Had the book NOT had the warning, I would not have noticed the amount of sex in this book, and it would not have been mentioned. But it did, so it is.

And finally...

4. RESEARCH, RESEARCH RESEARCH. Ms Mac Nicol has done a huge amount of research and it shines off every page that Nate is struggling. In every scene he get a new gadget or gizmo. In every person who comes along to help him in one way or another.

I loved this book. Stayed up WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY past my bedtime to finish it in one single sitting. 

Thank you, Nicolas, for putting the idea in Susan's head. Thank you, Susan, for delivering such a great read. If this does become a film, I'm so gonna see it!

5 full and shiny stars

* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and my comments here are my honest opinion. *

Susan Mac Nicol is a self confessed bookaholic, an avid watcher of videos of sexy pole dancing men, self confessed geek and nerd and in love with her Smartphone. This little treasure is called ‘the boyfriend’ by her long suffering husband, who says if it vibrated, there’d be no need for him. Susan hasn’t had the heart to tell him there’s an app for that…

She is never happier than when sitting in the confines of her living room/study/on a cold station platform scribbling down words and making two men fall in love. She is a romantic at heart and believes that everything happens (for the most part) for a reason. She likes to think of herself as a ‘half full’ kinda gal, although sometimes that philosophy is sorely tested.

Lover of walks in the forest, theatre productions, dabbling her toes in the cold North Sea and the vibrant city of London where you can experience all four seasons in a day , she is a hater of pantomime (so please don’t tar and feather her), duplicitous people, bigotry and self righteous idiots. 

In an ideal world, Susan Mac Nicol would be Queen of England and banish all the bad people to the Never Never Lands of Wherever -Who Cares. As that’s never going to happen, she contents herself with writing her HEA stories and pretending, that just for a little while, good things happen to good people.
