A sweet romance and two cute dogs

Blind Faith is one of N.R. Walker’s early stories. It’s a first person narrative from one character’s perspective and has all the fluffy elements the author has come to be known for in her stories.

The two main characters are ideally matched. Carter comes across as the vet who’s kind and caring to both people and animals. Isaac is the blind teacher who has suffered several tragic losses in his past, and as a result can be arrogant and uncooperative. He is, in fact, a nice guy too, and Carter soon falls for him, despite Isaac’s initial stubbornness and awkward temperament. Carter deals with him admirably at times. Both men suffer from their moody moments in this story, with several pouting scenes and giving the other the ‘silent treatment’. I couldn’t quite understand the logic behind Isaac not showing affection to his guide dog (Brady) and not sure why Carter didn’t discuss this issue with him. Surely as a vet that would have been an important matter.

Mark, Carter’s best friend, lightens the story, providing some humour and someone for Carter to share his thoughts and feelings with.

Overall this is a sweet romance, with a little angst with regard to Brady and also a misunderstanding between the two new lovers. Dog-lovers will probably enjoy it as Carter has a dog too and there are plenty of 'doggy' moments.

Michael Pauley’s narration of the story was enjoyable and easy to follow. He created voices consistent with the characters’ personalities and portrayed their emotions well.

As Always, NR Rocks - Loved Isaac and Carter!

I fthink NR does a great job of giving us Isaac an Carter - Isaac became blind at the age of 8 - and his whole life has been guided beyond that by his family and his sister and yet he has some shades of independence - he teaches at a school for the blind and helps others adapt to blindness and learning to flourish within that. Carter enters the picture as a vet - who helps with Isaac's Working Dog. I think there is a pretty good balance here between these two and they are pretty emotionally and intellectually suited to each other and thereby attracted. It takes some work on Carter's part - but for me, NR is an automatic purchse every time. I have loved almost every one of her books and her Red Dirt Heart series remains my all time favorite m/m series - such raw emotion and amazing love and dialogue between those two - so yes, NR - I look forward to everything you put out - that said, Joel Leslie, Sean Crisden, Iggy Toma, Nick J Russo and many others remain favorite narrators. Michael Pauley was less casual in his narration of this one - and downplayed the lilt - for some reason I cannot cotton to him as much as the others but he did this one justice. Can't wait for the Next Book NR!
