Review: Sight Unseen by Susan Mac Nicol and Nicholas Downs

How would you feel if waking up to a nightmare of never ending darkness, scared and alone. The best days of your relationship long gone, at the mercy of a uncaring, self centered boyfriend, who just won't see you as the man you once were. Abandoned 12 years ago for being gay, by the people where would have been supposed to love you the most. The only man never leaving your side, being your rock and light in all the dark, your best friend since childhood days. If there just wouldn't be the big elefant in the room that could destroy everything even more....

That's exactly how Sight Unseen begins, a epic love story about two men, both are suffering from decision made 12 years ago. This book also is a lot about second chances, second chances in life and love. The other day I've seen a question asked from another author at facebook about second chances and wasn't to sure how to answer. Now, after reading this wonderful book I would say; when life and love are giving us second chances, who are we then to decline something that could lead to be the best thing of our life.

Susan Mac Nicol is one of the authors on my auto buy list, so I'm already familiar with her writing. This book had been different, though. Personally I think it's the best book she ever wrote and she's outdone herself. Not only had she to write from a blind, gay man's perspective, she also had to write in a complete different slang. Like I already said; for me the story itself had been epic and therefore I can't wait to see it hopefully soon on screen, with Nicolas Downs in the leading role.

Thank you Susan Mac Nicol, for this most wonderful book of yours, which I enjoyed reading emensly!

Sight Unseen by Susan Mac Nicol & Nicholas Downs #highlyrecommended

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, and 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.
