Publisher's Summary

Daniel Van Doren was once a renowned writer, until he was blinded in the car accident that killed his lover. Now, all he sees are ghosts in need of help. They follow him everywhere, and the only way to be rid of his ethereal visitors is to help them resolve their unfinished business here on earth, so their spirits can find peace.

Ghostwriter Logan Riley is assigned to pen Daniel's biography. He plans to reveal him as a fraud, but when they meet he's struck by Danny's quiet sincerity - and a growing attraction. Which makes sticking close to Danny to find out the truth more than a little distracting.

When they are attacked by a violent poltergeist, Logan begins to believe Danny's not just telling the truth, he's in grave danger. A spirit has learned how to harness the energy of the living to break through the barrier between worlds in order to harm Danny. And Logan may be the one to blame.

    "A good listen -hot sex and some ghosts"

    This was my first ghost gay listen and I was able to enjoy most of it.
    the narrator was okay, while the sex scenes were better.
    I felt some of the ghost storyline was a bit over the top but overall
    I had no regrets - It was worth the credit!

    Story
    "Decent Thriller with a Paranormal Twist"

    This was a well written full novel with an interesting (if not necessarily original) plot and characters that are likeable. Unlike many M/M pairings, neither pair is particularly promiscuous and their growing relationship isn't based on sex (though there is plenty of well written romance here).

    The story follows Danny - a writer who lost his sight in a car accident that also claimed the life of his lover. After the wreck, he gained the curse of being able to see ghosts (usually one at a time). Meanwhile, Logan, another writer looking to do an expose on charlatans, offers to be a ghostwriter on Danny's biography (though he doesn't believe Danny is a real psychic). Once they meet, Danny sees that Logan has a ghost following him with serious malic on her mind - and the closer the boys get, the more powerful this lost soul becomes.

    The book is a pleasant and undemanding read with a great length to develop characters and provide plenty of action and reveals. As such, highly recommended.

    "On 2nd listen of this book"

    This is really a wonderful book and romance. Danny and Logan are one of my favorite couples and I am on my 2nd listen of this story. Granted some of the "ghost" elements are a little far fetched, but it works. The narrator is wonderful.

    Love Sci-Fi, Paranormal, Fantasy & Alternate History genres. Prefer action over romance.

    "Easy Fun Listen - Modern Paranormal Romance"
    Who was the most memorable character of Sight Unseen and why?

    The main character. He's blind, so his attraction is based on smell & touch instead of the usual visuals. This is what makes the book more unique & interesting than most. I don't know any blind people well, but it seemed believable as to how someone blind might experience & go through life. He was courageous in overcoming a debilitating handicap & finding a new purpose in life that helps other people. Someone to be admired.


    Any additional comments?

    It's a Paranormal Urban Fantasy story - set in modern times, with the Paranormal aspect being ghosts & the main character's ability to see them after a near death experience (which also took his eyesight). He has a relative who's a homicide detective & helps him solve murder/missing victim cases via his contact with the dead. This has been done but not overdone like vampires & werewolves & zombies, so it provides a nice change. Like many in this genre it isn't too hard to guess what happens next or how it's going to play out, but I don't listen to this type of book to exercise my brain, I listen when I want an easy read - to enjoy a fun mild urban thriller. No guns, no gore, nor foul language or gratuitous sex (& I still liked it!).It's a traditional 'Paranormal Romance' formula, but nicely done. Couple hooks up under false pretenses, fall in love, deceit is discovered, overcome adversity/almost get killed, survive, solve problems, live happily ever after - standard plot devices. I read another book by this same author (w/a hetero couple) & enjoyed it, so when I saw this on sale I decided to give it a try & was glad I did. It was much better than expected. Other issues were touched on, like role reversal - female stalker & antagonist instead of male & coming to terms with & accepting your sexual orientation (coming out of the closet) & learning to adapt to living with a handicap & making a new life. Overcoming losing a partner, dealing with grief & guilt & learning to love again. More character development &/or done better than the usual run of the mill. Main characters are gay but sexual orientation is absolutely not the focus of story. It just happens to be (as it should be unless it's meant as erotica - which it isn't). Does have the usual mooning over their intended partner's physical attributes (which are glorious of course!) & fantasizing what they'd like to be doing with them & finally a few sex scenes which are detailed but pretty tastefully/lovingly done & short (2 oral, 1 anal, if I remember correctly, for the entire book & not until at least the last 1/3rd). Again, pretty traditional & romantically done. They were about expressing love for & with another person physically, not about the sex or gender. I got it on sale for about $5 & felt it was worth the money. I like the author & will probably check out other works by them when I'm in the mood for a light read.

    Any additional comments?

    Original story line. Only problem I really had was with the narration. No inflection. They did fall in love a bit to quick for me But overall it was okay.

    Story
    "Decent paranormal romance, engaging protagonists"

    I found that this novel struck a nice balance between an interesting paranormal plot, a positive developing romance, and the amount of sappiness.

    I wouldn't say it was overly suspenseful, but it was interesting and the characters' behaviours was believable enough that you could invest yourself in their relationship. The writing was of good quality, including the Point of View perspectives written from the protagonist who is blind.

    So overall a solid recommendation.

    "An Interesting Idea with Good Narration"

    First I can't believe all the people who were shocked it was a gay romance. Didn't they read the synopsis before buying it? Anyway, if you prefer or are open to M/M romance this one is pretty good. I like the idea of a man getting the ability to see spirits in the same accident that takes his vision. It's not the best romance of this genre but it's good. I think the narrator did a pretty good job. Finally a man who manages not to make all the women sound like they are whining although a few are still in the shrill pitch. Overall there was a good range of distinctive voices for the handful of major characters. Not really credit worthy in my opinion, but worth a try if you have one burning a hole in your account.

    "Gay Romance"

    I should have paid more attention to the picture. I didn't even finish downloading it, when I noticed that it is gay romance.

    "Gay Romance!"
    What would have made Sight Unseen better?

    I apologise to the author for rating this book at one star but I didn't realise this book was a gay romance when I bought it. There was no mention of its genre in the book's promotion blurb.

    .




    Has Sight Unseen turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I don't usually read this genre. The plot sounded great just not my type of book.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Narrator sounded OK on the sample piece.


    Any additional comments?

    Audible needs to ensure that books are promoted to the intended audience.

    "Gay Porn"

    I guess I didn't look closely at the "picture" of the book. What a shock when I started hearing detailed sexual scenes involving 2 men!
