    3.5 starsThe StoryVet Carter Reece and gorgeous blind Isaac Brannigan meet apropos of Isaac’s guide dog Brady. They start dating, love develops slowly out of friendship, not much steam. Conflict No.1Isaac is arrogant and moody due to his tragic life and losses. It is kind of a defense-mechanism, plus he has really not much experience in relationships. He often acts infantile and throws tantrums.“I’m quite obnoxious apparently, and have a tendency to be rude.”It sounded as though he was quoting Hannah. So I added, “You forgot moody.”“Oh, and moody.” I shook my head and smiled at him. “And handsome.”Conflict No.2Isaac is not affectionate with his dog because he is scared he’d lose him too just like his previous dogs. It really wears Carter down.Main and Secondary CharactersAll likeable.Writing StlyleSmooth.RomanceSlow-built and lovely.EroticaOff-page, non-explicit, but what we have the privilege to witness is sweet enough.All in allNot my favorite Walker but it was engaging and enjoyable.Originally posted on my blog.My favorite quotes on Tumblr.

    Re-read November, 2015: I love this book! I enjoyed re-reading it again after 2 years.NR Walker has done it again! I have fallen in love with every book she has ever written, and this book was no exception.I absolutely loved Blind Faith and found it to be one of the sweetest M/M romances I have ever read. Dr. Carter Reese, dedicated Veterinarian and all around great guy, was a dream MC hero for Isaac Brannigan, who was dealing with a series of trust issues for humans and canines alike. Dog lovers, like myself, will especially love this romance.If you love old fashion "courting" in contemporary romance, honest everyday issues that real people struggle with, are a "dog person", M/M romance with passion instead of porn in the sex scenes (is it hot in here?) and want to be swept away by a sweet story for an afternoon with minimal angst and lots of character development, I can HIGHLY RECOMMEND Blind Faith.On my favorites shelf!

    Check out my interview with the author N.R. Walker over at http://loveaffairwithanereader.blogsp...3.5 starsSweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet...And because of this:1) I'm happy to overlook some of the flaws of the book 2) I'm certain more than 1/2 of you will roll your eyes at this book :)3) I'll probably reread it at some point4) I'll maintain my uber-sap status5) I really, really enjoyed this...Carter is a vet, new in town, good & kind & patient to the core. Isaac is a blind man, with a kick-ass guide dog, a sad/tragic past, a bit of a mean streak, but who just needs some lovin'. The pair of them...adorable. Oh...and some awesome dogs and a crude, but hysterical, best friend thrown in the mix...There was some over-the-top cheesiness in a few parts, some ridiculousness in others (view spoiler)[(you want me to believe Isaac can overcome loss to love Carter so easily but not overcome loss to love Brady so easily? Ummmm...) (hide spoiler)], but all-in-all, this book left me smiling, my heart feeling warm and full, and my book-appetite satisfied.

    How things went so horribly wrong in a sweet, first love romance.1. Carter's complete ignorance and condescending attitude about Isaac being visually impaired. Yeah, it's amazing he walks around his house, feeds himself, and even rides a bus to go hike. Why I bothered finishing, I'm not sure. I think part of it was because I couldn't believe it was so naively insulting. Then Isaac poured three glasses of iced tea, and Mark watched him; how his long fingers felt the edge of the glass, how he moved the jug, how he felt the spout against the glass, how he poured three drinks, of equal measure, without spilling a drop. I couldn't help but smile a little proudly. Why the [email protected]#$ are you proud? So you don't have to explain to your best friend that, yeah my boyfriend's blind, but he's just as good as one who can see. 2. The bad puns surrounding blindness. Really? Are we eight years old. 3. The fact that Isaac's sister/caretaker thought it was appropriate to change out his clothes to something embarrassing as punishment, a means of venting frustration in their relationship--And this was meant to be funny? No. *shaking my head* If you don't understand what's wrong with that then this whole review probably makes zero sense. 4. Bisexuality being depicted as slutty. 5. Gay norm being slutty, and how Carter is an outlier.6. Ding, dong, misunderstanding. . The whole swoop out mid-argument before someone finishes speaking... I can't. All I can say is I hope karma reaps on you what you sow. NTS: You need to give up on these sorts of books, they don't work for you.

    4 1/2 Stars!! This didn't just tug on my heart, it pulled really, really hard!Wow...I never expected this book to have such an effect on me. How could it not? A bitter blind man, a beautiful guide dog and the most amazing, caring, understanding veterinarian...GAAAAAH! The best kind of fluff!! Isaac lost his sight at the tender age of 8, in a devastating accident. Since then there have been more losses and heartbreak, but the one that has affected him the most, is the loss of his guide dog Rosie. She was a part of him, and losing her was like losing a piece of himself. His new dog Brady is every bit the brilliant dog that Rosie was, but for Isaac nothing will ever compare to the black lab that stole his heart. Enter Carter, the new vet in town, he’s been passed the torch to make the house calls to check on Brady’s health. Isaac insists there is something wrong with his dog, but Carter knows there is nothing wrong with Brady and that Isaac holds the key to making the partnership work. With each visit the bond between Carter and Isaac becomes stronger; a friendship ensues that leads to more. Isaac can be stubborn and hurtful, but Carter is no wilting flower and gives it right back and lays it out to Isaac, in no uncertain terms. It was in these moments that the author’s writing was exceptionally good, she draws the reader in and you feel the scene, you don’t just read it. I enjoyed seeing them grow into friends and ultimately into lovers. It was a slow burn and build up, which was appropriate, considering that this was Isaac’s first foray into intimacy. Carter, ever the patient man, shows Isaac how it can be between two men and it was lovely. Two other note-worthy characters, Hannah, Isaac’s sister…she was wonderful. Always wanting the best for her brother, but not one to put up with his tantrums, I just loved her. The other one was Mark, Carter’s best friend. He was the perfect balance of comic relief when the issues at hand weighed in that moment. A crazy, fun, true blue friend, not only to Carter, but to Isaac too. I would love to read more about him. The ending was satisfying enough, but to my delight, I see that Isaac and Carter’s story will continue in a second book, Through These Eyes. Now I’m getting anxious, because another book can only mean that some sort of turmoil will come into their lives. Thank you Susan for 'guiding me' to this book. I agree, it was sappy and heavy on the cheese at times, but none the less, I loved it and I had the happy glow when I turned the last page. Dogs…the best kind of best friend. They give so much and ask nothing in return.

    A vet, a blind man, a guard dog = fluff guaranteed.After a rocky start - the term "older man" used in first person POV was very irritating - but the "old man" said goodbye after a few pages and from then on it was smoothly written cotton candy. I thought all I need to survive are rose-colored glasses, a feather boa and several helpings of Hungarian goulash soup with extra red pepper - as antidote.But what finally threw me off the candy train were the main characters.Carter was the epitome of a wounded Bambi and Isaac a petulant, spoiled brat. Busy with giving each other a hard time with lots of misunderstandings and accusations followed by pouting, silent treatment, tears, "tell me if you still want to be with me`s" and making ups (as icing on the cake, "Oh, my poor baby!" *groan*). After the third round I was fed up with these two dramaqueens. The only mature acting character in this book was the adorable guard dog Brady.The three stars are for him...

    3.5 starsSo torn between 3 and 4 stars on this one! Why didn't we get half stars when they made these other changes? I'll never stop complaining about that. Carter and Isaac were perfect together! N.R. Walker always manages to pull me in right away with her vivid characters, which is what I love the most about her stories.My only complaint is that I still find it distracting that she writes American characters who will suddenly sound British. An American guy would never say the word "shag" for example. just saying! Overall, I enjoyed it and would recommend it though, especially to fans of her other series.

    Okaay, so this is the second review I've done today for this book as my other one seems to have disappeared!! I think you need to get your website sorted out GR!!Another Nic Walker winnerI won't go into the story here because others will do a much better job of reviewing it than me.Carter & Isaac were a really cute couple, and this book was even more enjoyable because I know that another one is coming out in 8 weeks time (according to the author), BUT my favourite couple is still Lucas and Cameron from 65 Hours! Hot or what!!

    This was a sweet story but not my favorite from Walker. I enjoyed the slow progression of the romance but found myself, like Carter, a bit frustrated with Isaac's mood swings. Carter is a veterinarian new to the area and Isaac's guide dog, Brady, is a part of his home visit circuit. There was some cute chemistry and I did like how Carter called Isaac on his moods. There were a few moments that were skipped over that I wish we had seen:(view spoiler)[First blow job! ;) I was disappointed that we only got a quick one line that it had happened a week previously. There was such a build up to more and more sexual interaction that not reading it was a bit of let down. The night that Brady and Issac spent outside. (hide spoiler)]I think that I really would have like a part of the story from Issac's POV, it would have helped me warm to him more. While I did really understand his reasoning behind his moods and his feelings towards Brady I think I would have enjoyed the story more and it would have had a stronger impact on me to read where Issac was in his head.A good read if you're looking for a sweet slow burn romance.

    1. I was bored.2. This was extremely vanilla.3. The writing and dialogue in particular was stiff.4. Walker shies away from sex. She just tells the reader that BJs etc occurred. 5. Emotionally momentous occasions are off page and are summed up tidily.6. This story felt insubstantial and shallow.7. The writing style struck me as being very pedestrian here.8. I'm happy this was a Lendle loan.9. I'm over N. R. Walker's work.10. I don't understand how this could have a sequel.

    Nice light tale about veterinarian Carter who falls for the moody Isaac, a blind man having trouble bonding with his new guide dog. Guide dog 'Brady' is the cutest thing in the story!

    3.5 stars. A sweet little m/m romance between vet Carter and blind teacher Isaac plus cute guide dog Brady. The sex scenes are lacking the usual descriptive mechanism.'"What do you look like?"I frowned. I'd been told once or twice I looked a little like Colin Farrell, but there was no point in admitting that, Isaac would have never seen him either."Um, I don't know. Just average, I guess."'

    *4.5* rounded up.I really enjoyed this.. was it my favourite of hers... not quite hence the slight drop in rating but its still a keeper. Isaac and Carter were a lovely couple and Brady was just gorgeous! Who doesn't love a lab - regardless of whether he's a guide dog or not. They always have that warm, fuzzy factor. Isaac made me want to slap him every now and then.. Stubborn man, but luckily Carter had the right way of dealing with him and I loved how he wouldn't take any crap from him or pander to him just because of his disability! Great secondary characters too. Mark was a good laugh and Hannah was a sweetie as well as a saint! I would read anything by Ms Walker she ticks all my boxes so although its a 4.5* for the story I'm rounding it up because she's a 5* writer.:)

    BR, October 31st with JulieCarter is the new vet in town and during his rounds he meets the blind Isaac.Isaac has been blind since he was eight, lives alone with his guide dog Brady.There seems to be no connection between the man and the dog...Carter falls in love with this independant Isaac. This moody, infuriating man....They were sweet together though!For me the real stars of the book were the dogs; Brady and Carter's dog Missy...Other reviews of the series: - review Through Thes Eyes (Book 2) - review Blindside (Book 3) - review Twelfth of Never (Book 3,5)

    I love N.R. Walker and I love her characters. I've said this before and I'll say it again, I'm a sucker for guys that love animals. So obviously, I loved Carter from the get go. Isaac...not so much..but he's growing on me.I loved the dialogue between Carter and Isaac. I liked that they didn't immediately hop into bed and that they took things slowly. I liked that Carter called Isaac on his bullshit.I thought Mark was awesome and he was quite humorous. He had some great one-liners and I can totally see why Carter loves him as a dear friend.And most of all, I love Brady! Such a good boy! I can't wait for the second book. But guess what, I don't need to wait as I'm going to start it right now :)

    3.5 StarsJust the fluffy comfort read I needed after a string of intense reads. I knew N.R. Walker was just the author I needed to get me back into a happy headspace! This story was sweet and charming; with just enough relationship angst to keep me entertained. Plus, doggies!!

    3.5 Stars Isaac - blind with a bit of a defensive chip on his shoulder, he's been through several major losses in his life. Of course he's afraid of getting attached.Carter - the new vet in town is instantly intrigued. He's not about to be bullied by Isaac and stands his ground - thus reaping amazing results. This was simply a great story of two people falling in love, intermixed with some steamy moments and funny/silly banter. There was just enough angst in and amongst all the good feels.I'm definitely beginning to associate N.R. Walker with total comfort fluff. I pretty much had a smile on my face the whole time I read this.

    1st Read: May 10, 20142nd Read: December 31, 2015I loved this story! Loved it, I tell you! Isaac is wealthy, good looking, and blind. He is so afraid to love anyone. He has abandonment issues which affect his relationships. Carter is the new vet in town. He makes a house call to check on Brady, Isaac’s guide dog. I loved watching their relationship progress slowly. It was beautiful and frustrating at the same time. I empathized for Carter and the way Isaac would pull him in and then push him away. Can’t wait to read the next one in this series!!

    *****5 HAPPY stars*****I came across Blind Faith while I was scrolling through my newsfeed on here, the cover caught my eye and then when I read the blurb I was curious as I am visually impaired myself so I bought it and started reading straight away and OMG I have discovered a new favourite m/m author in N R Walker, I love her writing style and I cannot wait to check out her other books.I loved this story getting to know Carter Reece and Isaac Brannigan and falling for both men while they fall for each other, this story had me captivated from the first page till the last, it is full of loveable characters and cute dogs. It is sweet and emotional with a little drama thrown in. While reading Blind Faith and getting to know Isaac I could relate a lot with him we have a similar disability and his struggle with Brady his guide dog as I lost my dog and it took me 9 YEARS before I could replace her and TRUST ME I have mood swings just like Isaac as well (who doesn’t).I could not wait to pick up my kindle and read more as I have been in a reading slump recently and THANKS to N R Walker now I have many books and lots of new guys to get to know the problem I have now is where to begin after I finish this series???I will be starting Through These Eyes A.S.A.P to find what happens next to Reece and Isaac.

    4.5 StarsCarter Reece moves from Connecticut to Boston to take over a veterinary practice for a retiring doctor. Carter pays a house call to and meets Isaac Brannigan. Isaac is arrogant, moody, drop-dead gorgeous, blind, and single. Their tentative friendship soon blossoms into more but Isaac comes with some fairly heavy baggage. As Carter attempts to help Isaac through the transitions in his life, their fledgling relationship is put to the test.First, N.R. Walker has a new FAN! I love her writing and she has earned a spot on my short auto-buy list. I adored the Point of No Return series and have fallen in love with Blind Faith.Isaac is surly and can be a pompous ass ... most of the time. Despite this, however, once you get past the surface he is loveable ... deep, deep down. Carter is just the opposite. He's loveable through and through. He's so patient with Isaac and I adored his love of and devotion to caring for animals. As is her style, N.R. Walker creates robust characters while weaving an engaging story. I read this book in one sitting.Bottom line: a very satisfying read. Highly recommend! BTW, I <3 Brady and Missy.

    Another fantastically sweet read by Walker! (Or, as I like to call it, medicinal fluff. :-))I got a bit frustrated with Isaac for the exact reasons Carter did, but I loved him for the same reasons, too. (Er, well okay, maybe not ALL the same reasons! LOL!)And I got frustrated with Carter after (view spoiler)[that first 'I love you' - I felt like he didn't even give Isaac a chance, he just immediately took his silence for rejection and walked out, even though he already knew about Isaac's past history with losing people he loves (hide spoiler)]. But, that's love - it's not always rational, especially if you're feeling hurt or humiliated (or both). I'm a big animal lover, so I really enjoyed the context of the story, as well. And OMG, how sweet were the kids with the bunnies?! I also enjoyed the side characters - Mark was hilarious, and a lot of fun, and I thought Hannah was great, too. I wondered about Carter's parents, though... Anyway, recommended prescription if you're in an angsty funk that you don't feel like wallowing in. LOL

    I liked the story, but it's definitely not my favorite from N.R. Walker. The MCs acted a bit boring, but the dogs, especially Brady, did it for me. Nice read, thank you!Edit: Hell, I forgot someone! There was Mark! I would love to read his story. He was quite the hottest character of the story!

  • Enny

    Cute story but there were some things in it that bugged me like that attitude that only anal sex counts as sex or the fact that supposed animal lover Carter lets Isaac get away with not treating his dog Brady right for such a long time just because he's afraid that Isaac will throw another one of his tantrums.

    Awww! This was such a cute story. Nothing bad happens, no one is a bigot, no one is stabbed, bashed or killed. Just a cute HEA. Sweet characters, nice little plot although I think Brady-the-guide-dog is my favourite character. Looking forward to book 2 and the release of book 3.

    A sweet romance that kept me up until the wee hours of the morning. Two characters I could relate to for the main leads, and a loud best friend I want more of. Add in a pair of adorable dogs amd I was a goner. I have a feeling I will be reading this one again.
